“April takes the whole ‘ghost knife magically changing before her eyes’ thing in stride and is only mildly amazed. I guess she would have been more impressed by better CGI, but dammit, we’re on a budget here, okay, April? Yeesh.”The best animated shows for female characters
“Over the years, animated shows have been able to give us solid proof that cartoons made by women, and cartoons made for women (and girls) can be successful. Here are just some of the extremely positive representations of women in different cartoon shows and franchises.”Are You Afraid of the Dark? “The Tale of the Dark Dragon”
“Bear with me here; the protagonist doesn’t start out hot, nor does he stay that way throughout the entire episode. But it’s those little bits of magical, bad-assed hotness that really make this episode shine. It’s like when Anakin Skywalker finally turned bad—he was extra hot because you had to wait a little while for it to happen.”The Last Airbender (2010)
“The worst M. Night Shyamalan movie yet. And damn, is that saying something.”Never Say Never Again (1983): the lost recap (part 4)
“So there you have it, folks. James Bond, secret agent: killed by a video game.”Avatar: The Last Airbender “The Great Divide”
“This episode talks down to the audience at every opportunity, throws in all kinds of gratuitous gags, and only exists to shove a moral down our throats. Even by the time it aired, the show’s audience had learned to expect more than that, and I shudder to think that there were probably more than a few people who had been telling their friends about this great show called Avatar: The Last Airbender that was so much better than any other American cartoon, only to have this be the next episode that aired.”
