Editorial Reviews

Avatar the Last Airbender: Book 3, Volume 1 is a slightly unusual suite of episodes in the Avatar canon, as the majority of programs are even more comical than usual. Not that the five shows included on this disc lack seriousness: the long-running series now finds young Aang (the once and future avatar destined to reunite the world’s four estranged nations) and his traveling companions behind enemy lines in the Fire Nation, disguised as colonists. In "Awakening," Aang arises--with a surprising headful of dark hair--from several weeks of unconsciousness (due to the injuries he sustained during a battle for Ba Sing Se) aboard a captured Fire Nation warship. Though he finds old friends Sokka, Toph, and Katara nearby, all urging him not to take matters in his own hands, Aang ultimately feels compelled to go head-to-head with the Fire Lord before he is ready. The result forces Aang and the others to remain incognito, setting up subsequent episodes in which the heroes are forced to lay low and find something else to do with their time besides fight adversaries. In "The Headband," Aang enrolls in a Fire Nation school, where his eyes are opened to such ordinary experiences as dealing with a campus bully and getting a hard time from strict teachers. In "The Painted Lady," Aang, Sokka, Katara, and Toph visit an impoverished fishing village and have to repress their typical instinct to help lest they be recognized as outsiders. (An alternative is found.) "Sokka’s Master," in some ways the most enjoyable episode here, finds Sokka feeling useless because he doesn’t possess powers similar to his mates. His solution: talk a master swordsman into taking him on as an apprentice. Finally, the most unexpected story in this collection is "The Beach," in which Prince Zuko, Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee--all of whom are back in the Fire Nation, too--take an awkward holiday but end up learning a lot about one another.

Meanwhile, Zuko--following his extended banishment from the Fire Nation--discovers that his father welcoming again, but only because his manipulative sister, Princess Azula, has falsely told everyone that Zuko killed Aang. Fearing that his father will disown him again, Zuko chooses not to tell the truth and works on having Aang quietly assassinated. Where Zuko had been more of a complete human being during his exile, he’s back to being a monster again, going so far as to keep his dutiful uncle, Iroh, in a dark, dank prison. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Aang, Katara, Sokka and Toph are going undercover to infiltrate the Fire Nation. Their goal is to get to the Palace where they hope to confront and defeat the evil and powerful Firelord. Along the way they learn that the people of the Fire Nation have the same needs and desires as everyone else in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it, crave it, miss it when it's gone! October 27, 2007
I love this show above all others. I started watching with my 10 year old and was captured enough to buy season 1 & 2. I struggled with anticipation for season 3 and have been a little disappointed with such a long wait and hum drum set of episodes, but I do understand how difficult the creators have it to keep such a wonderfully developed story going. I am so sorry to hear of the death of Mako the voice of Uncle Iroh. He was truly a gifted actor.

The best seen so far has been episode 5, the Avatar and the Firelord. It put so much into perspective. I truly enjoyed episode 3, Sokka's Master. I hope and pray that the people who are creating the show know how much people really identify with Aang and how much we look forward to the completion of his journey. All the characters are strong and need to stay that way.

Zuko is a wonderful character because of the struggle he finds within himself of wanting to please his father but also wanting to please his uncle. Sokka is great because he provides comic relief and yet guides with inner strength. And Uncle Iroh has great wisdom and gives such good advice with patience in his voice. I hope that we do not have to wait as long for season 4 as we did for season 3 because I do not think this will be the end.Avatar The Last Airbender Book 3 Fire, Vol. 1

5.0 out of 5 stars A Preview of Whats to Come November 11, 2007
After the long 9 month hiatus that nick forced by providing fans with no new avatar news, Avatar makes it long waited Season 3 debut. Though the first five episodes seemed disappointing to fans, there was a purpose. Avatar is a little kid's show, intended for the 6-10 demographic. In war, there is always a certain amount of propaganda. Propaganda that generates hate towards the enemy. In order to provide moral ethical values into the show, Avatar must show that though there is an ongoing war, not all people participating in the war can be considered "evil." The first five episodes shows the fans and viewers of Avatar that Fire Nation citizens are not all bad and evil. Overall, the majority of them are just ordinary people who have the same problems as everyone else. The first 5 episodes of Avatar does the job of uncovering what the fire nation is all about brilliantly as it does so in a comedic and playful way.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3rd Season is amazing - can't wait for next DVD July 26, 2008
I'm a 42-year-old mother of a 7 1/2-year-old and I love this series in my own right. I have every next DVD pre-ordered. The story line is psychologically intricate and interesting. The martial arts are well done - particularly with the isolation of one particular type of move to represent the different nations. The focus is not even on the fighting but on character development and interactions and plot development. This is a great series not just for children but for adults as well - even adults without children. In fact, I like the story more than my son, who would put pokemon and some others ahead of Avatar. Avatar is more complex that other stories of its genre and done very well. The first 2 books were indeed spectacular but I can barely wait for the next DVD to come out in this exciting 3rd season. I guess the first 2 seasons have done a great job of building up the story line to make each dvd of the 3rd season awaited with intense anticipation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where's the DVD treatment this deserves??? November 10, 2007
This is not only the best animated show on television, but one of the best shows period. The DVD's are lame, with low-def transfers, no widescreen presention, no surround sound. They are dark, washed out looking, especially on a HDTV, even with 1080p upscaling. I couldn't be more disapointed wiht the presentation or sound. I just watched "The Clone Wars" DVD and it reminded me of how brilliant animation can look on a 16:9 HDTV, then I watched an episode off of this dvd and realized how I had wasted $12 on it!

I hope the do a delux, HD version of all three seasons at some point, this one is not worthy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good series, good for younger kids as well October 25, 2007
I've become addicted to this crazy little series. It's a little corny is some aspects but it's also rather entertaining. I also let my neice and nephew watch this series as it's good clean animation that I don't have to worry about them picking up bad habbits for language from, it's nice not to have to worry about them picking up bad language from the cartoons they watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aang Rules September 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
Possibly the best animated series of all time. I actually teared up on the final episode of the series. Don't buy the feature movie. It was horrible. I repeat, if you love the animated series, stay away from the full length feature movie remake. Unless you enjoy slow torture and the butchering of this classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Believe...Aang Can Save the World May 12, 2012
When I started "The Boy in the Iceberg" just a few months ago, it blew me away. "SpongeBob SquarePants" used to be my absolute favorite tv show on Nickelodeon, but when I laid my eyes on this one, that immediately changed. All of you reading this review have probably seen Books 1&2 (if you haven't, watch, quickly; Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Complete Book 1 Collection and Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Complete Book Two Collection), so I'll cut right to the chase. Aang wakes up on a Fire Nation ship with a full head of hair after being knocked out for a few weeks. He finds that his friends, Katara, Sokka, and Toph, and the first and second's father's war troop are just weeks away from invading the Fire Nation. From there on the kids continue on adventures throughout the Fire Nation. Some of the best on this disc include "The Headband," an Avatar dance special, and "Sokka's Master," a Sokka-focused episode that's got plenty of action and good old Sokka humor. Plus, you get some audio commentaries and Part 1 of the "Private Fire" comic book story. Own this brilliant volumes and the following ones up ahead (or maybe even Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Complete Book 3 Collection). Do this or take Sokka's advice and:
"Go to your room!"

4.0 out of 5 stars Avatar Book Fire Vol 1
Book 3, Vol 1 was great, but it could have been better. It's a little bit sentimental and I am used to seeing all the villians cold and cruel with not feelings.

Yep, Aang's got hair now. But it's no reason to "curse this series", it's just hair. You can see it in the preview that was aired at comic con. Here's the link.
