Sofie goes back and digs through her pile of Requested Reviews for a rather special request: The original, unaired pilot to what went on to become a very successful show, Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender!
Are You Afraid of the Dark? “The Tale of the Long-Ago Locket”
“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.”My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic “Rainbow Falls”
“Well, people, you knew it had to happen. The thing about any long-running series is that no matter how good it is, there will always be a few duds in between all the great stuff.”My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic “Flight to the Finish”
“Season four of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic finally picks up with the fifth episode ‘Flight to the Finish’, which seems to have become an instant fan favorite.”My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic “Pinkie Apple Pie”
“I will admit, though, that if you’re going to take a selfie, plunging over a waterfall is really the only way to do it. ”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.”Avatar: The Last Airbender “Avatar Day”
“In a half hour episode, minus the commercials, the opening and closing credits, and the Zuko and Iroh subplot, there isn’t nearly enough time to develop a good mystery plot, with the heroes finding clues and gradually realizing the truth. Instead, we have a few cursory investigation scenes, and a bunch of lame jokes, before everything’s solved with a double dose of deus ex machina.”
