Announcement: First Retrospective Review Coming Soon…

If you’re wondering why there has yet to be a single new review yet, just know that it’s not for lack of trying. I’ve actually been having a difficult time just writing a review for the first two episodes (“The Boy in the Iceberg” and “The Avatar Returns”). Perhaps I’m just adjusting to working on the blog again after so long, or–most likely–I’m attempting to say too much too soon. These two episodes alone brought back so many memories as well as a million new insights that this retrospective is in danger of crashing before it even takes off.

Once the first few reviews do show up, they’ll be due for some heavy revision as the retrospective goes on. In fact, depending on the discussion generated by each episode, each review may garnish a revision or two in light of new perspectives from all those who comment. So this is going to be an interesting little experiment, and I hope you’ll all give me the patience and support needed to see it through all sixty-one episodes of Avatar: the Last Airbender (and MAYBE The Legend of Korra).

Thanks again to all of you who have stuck around. We’ll make this work!

Announcement: I’m Back!

Which means the long-await Avatar: the Last Airbender/Legend of Korra retrospective will begin, the general animation blog will begin (starting with a quick review of the new Spongebob Squarepants movie), and I can even finish my video review for Frozen (Or: How I Learned to Stop Bitching and Love Hollywood Animation). The possibilities are wide open, but don’t worry: I won’t get ahead of myself this time. We’ll see what happens.
