It has been confirmed that The Legend of Aang, and the Avatar series is drop dead awesome. No need to argue about it anymore, nor make such statement. We all know.

In certain countries the term "bender" is used as a derogatory term for a homosexual individual. As such, in places like the UK they call it Avatar: "The Legend of Aang" instead of "The Last Airbender"

Why not, is there something wrong with being from my country? It isn't like I am going around pasting flags everywhere and talking about how the USA is "obviously the best country on Earth", it was topical to the conversation on hand. Or is it that I used the colloquial term "American" instead of saying I am "from the United States"? I figured that even one as brain dead as yourself could figure out I meant that I was from the United States.

Fun fact about Wan Shi Tong. In the west, thanks to Athena, goddess of wisdom, Owls are generally seen as symbols of knowledge and wisdom. While in Asia it's the snake, hence his slightly snake like form when angered.

Naah, snakes has very similar symbolic meanings in Asia as they do over here. For example, in many Buddhist cultures, snakes are seen as the animal representing anger and hate, together with the pig symbolising stupidity (which is ironic, because pigs are some of the smartest animals on Earth together with rats, dolphins and monkeys) and the cockerel symbolising vanity.

It's fine if you have an opinion, but there is philosophy in many cartoons, I created a club at my High school based solely on that principle.   
Freakazoid tells us the dangers of the internet while it was still in it's birthing stages   
Avatar the last Airbender tells us not only this theme, but it tells of the power struggle in war times from both sides of the war, it's why Zuko wasn't just a sniveling prick   
My Little pony is a show for girls to tell them that they can be whomever they want to be, even if they want to be a girly girl or a rough tomboy, and to accept who they really are   
Courage the cowardly dog told us (as children) that no matter how scared you thought you were, you need to persevere

That's because there is philosophy in it. Every last bit of the above was done on purpose, along with countless, more subtle ones. I took the part about Zuko learning lighting redirection from Iroh to be a more subtle lesson about how you can learn from other cultures.

MLP isn't really philosophical, but you'd be surprised how many of the morals taught still apply to adults.

I thought MLP was mildly cute (till the fans... oh lawdy the fans)
I disliked Dr. Who
I felt ambivalent of Game of Thrones (seems to be an overzealous amount of sex in it)

Opinions can be delivered in a calm and thoughtful way, just because you dislike a certain thing, doesn't mean one can be a prat. This goes for anything in life.

I actually prefer the fight sequences in LOK over ATLA and the fact that the main characters are older. Young kids fighting just usually looks awkward to me for some reason. I also liked the fact that Korra couldn't go avatar state in the first season, meaning that she had to be more creative with her fighting style. However, based basically everything else is done better in ATLA.

I enjoyed LOK, but I just thought that giving her 3 out of 4 elemental powers and then learning the 4th in the first book (I think the refer to the series' as books...) made her too overpowered. Aang started with one and learned the others gradually, book by book. I assume they'll make something out of the 2nd tier bender abilities (lightning, metal, blood, etc.) or the spiritual part because Aang was raised in a monk's temple so he would have known more of that stuff, but it still seems too rushed. In a way, it was also a good move though, because air is the only element we didn't see Aang learn and it is the only element that we do see Korra learn, so none are repeated.

In terms of its size it seems more like China. The Water-tribes would be the Inuit-people, The Air-nomads would probably be Indians or something close to it (not the native-american kind) and the Fire-nation could be Japan(?).

no, they're more like china, and how it sort of waged wars for land a while back.

Ba sing sae was more like NK as you were given an assigned tour guide that wont allow you to go to certain areas.

the show was a very nice way to cover asian cultures for a younger western audience

This is the exact reason I love One Piece
"Those who stand at the top determine what's wrong and what's right! This very place is neutral ground! Justice Will Prevail, you say?! But of course it will!! Whoever wins this war becomes justice!!!"

-Doflamingo

The victors write the history. When you are the winner of a war you can justify it through history any way you like!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWW YIIIIIIIIIIIS! one piece!
thanks to having the "bad guys" perspective they are pirates, labeled as the bad guys, though they do nothing bad, some times we have some moral encounters like "wait... the good guys are not even judging the good acts, nor even know if the bad things are true", then we got sided with the "bad guys" thinking that the "good guys" are corrupted or do not think by themselves, and ordinary people have those kind of rotten people ruling them...
wait... it seems familiar...

Doflamingo is one of the most interesting characters in one piece. His influence and power is bigger and wider than anyone can imagine.

Loving how much information they've revealed about him the past two arcs

"Hero? No! We're Pirates! I love heroes, but I don't wanna be one! Do you know what heroes are? Say there is a chunk of meat. Pirates will have a banquet and eat it. But heroes will share it with other people. I want all the meat!" - Luffy.
