    I really liked the final 4 episode "movie" and the way they left open tangents for future stories.

    I did find them a bit clunky at times, almost like they were desperately trying to fill time, disrupting the smooth flow of the story. The author fiat also stretched suspension of disbelief... I mean; Sokka had the luck of a Jedi master!

    But overall, it was good and didn't disappoint.

    BTW> did anyone else feel like the kiss at the end was a fanfic-inspired fanservice?

    My only issue with the Kitara and Aang "romance" is that he is 12 and she is supposed to be 15??? That is a big age gap when you are in your tweens and teens not so much when you are in your 20's.

    Serena Williams was the voice of Uncle Iroh's nice guard that he told to go home the day of the eclipse.

    I was always keen on the fact that Jason Isaacs was the voice of Commander Zhao, man does a bad guy well Not to mention the always wonferful Rene Auberjonois adding his voice ot the show.

    I think it speaks volumes to the quality of the show and the appeal to a wide audience when you can get big names like that to do the voices.

    He just added additional voices. Rene is a wonderful character actor so i can see him doing voices of people you'd never guess.
