Because fans should be critical, too

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!

    Oh man Marshall so excited for this to happen! I cant wait to discuss each episode with you guys and more than likely I will be watching each episode before I read the review.

    On a side note do you plan to post weekly or every other week? If its random thats fine but it would be nice to have something to look forward to at the end of the week 🙂

    Keep up the great writing Marshall!

    • You know, I should get back on a set schedule and deadline with these episode reviews. Thanks for the suggestion, Ian!

    A second question I have is will you be updating your ratings? I love your rating system and think it is the perfect scale to rate Avatar episode (besides maybe a letter grade: EX. A+, A, A-, B+, B, …etc.)

    So a new rating for each episode would be really cool I think and as a bonus for long time viewers I think it would be neat to at the top of each review, “Old Rank, New Rank” (or “Rating” or whatever” just a thought.
