I own both the first and second season of avatar and watched the third season in its entirety on TV and I loved every minute of it. This is a show that any child should be able to enjoy. It has comedy, action, suspense and great characters, both male and female. Its also a show I think most adults should give a chance. I find most cartoons these days only appeal to small children and not adults, but parents should be able to enjoy shows with their kids, and this is one of those shows. I say buyers should check out the first season and if they like it, which I know they will, definitely pick up the second and third seasons. Highly recommended.

Great series. Most animated series on Saturday mornings with a few exceptions have been targeted for young audiences except this one. The story line and character development is very gradual and gets more detailed as you get into the series. The script is well written and logical and the animated artwork is very superb for a weekly television based series. You don't have to see all episodes in order for things to make sense; however, you will want to see all the episodes once you are I own all 3 books.
A great buy and a wonderful series for the whole family to watch together.

J'ai adoré la série. La première fois, je l'ai regardée sur Netflix avec mon épouse et j'ai énormément apprécié. Je suis un fan d'animation japonaise et cette série dépasse largement la majorité des séries nippones actuelles. Entre autres, les scènes d'action sont dignes des meilleurs films d'arts martiaux! Je lui donne 5 sur 5.

Cependant, je ne donne pas une bonne note au coffret DVD. J'ai acheté la série dans le but de la partager, un jour, avec un enfant. Quelle fut ma surprise d'apprendre qu'il n'y avait pas de version française pour la troisième saison, alors qu'il y en avait pour les deux premières!

Je suis une personne tolérante qui croit que chacun devrait avoir le choix. Si quelqu'un veut la série en anglais, qu'il puisse l'acheter. Si les séries sortent en anglais avant de sortir en français, c'est correct aussi. Mais avatar est une série qui date de plusieurs années et ça fait longtemps que les épisodes ont sorti en français à la télévision. Dans ce cas, pourquoi ne pas vendre un DVD avec une trame audio en français?

Je suis déçu des choix commerciaux des distributeurs, surtout qu'il s'agit d'un dessin animé qui peut intéresser grandement les enfants. C'est dommage que notre langue ne soit pas respectée à ce point dans notre pays bilingue. Nous ne demandons pas d'enlever la possibilité des gens de voir la série en anglais en avance, mais seulement d'avoir la possibilité d'acheter la série en français quand elle est disponible!

La prochaine fois, que devra-t-on faire? Aller chercher la série sur un site pirate au lieu de l'acheter, comme le font de plus en plus de gens que nous connaissons et qui ne trouvent jamais les séries qu'ils souhaitent en français?

Season 3 is by far the best season of the series. Right from the start to the 3 part finale this season really puts the entire Avatar: The Last Airbender series in the elite. Just amazing animation, strong thrilling story lines, smart and funny episodes and amazing final battles! Ember Island Players is by far one of my favourite episodes in the entire series. The ONLY reason I cant give it a 5 star rating is the lack of special features. There are a ton of episode commentaries which was fun and interesting to listen to, and the little interview with M. Night was real interesting, but I guess I was just hoping for more.....
With that said, it looks like there will be a re-realease of Season 1 in a limited edition 7 disc release loaded with a bunch of special features, documentaries and more. I can only assume there will be future releases of seasons 2&3. With the theatrical release coming soon, I see people are jumping onto the ATLAB bandwagon.. I hope more people watch the series. Theres no way a movie will ever capture the stories and characters from the show.

This product is really good, but what make stand out most of the dvd and blu-rays for me is the fact that they have other languages in them, most commonly spansih and french. And this Dvd collection lacks of that. I really like to hear movies in other languages, yet is a minor complain anyway. Is a great product. The dvd quality of this collection is really good.

Though there's the odd weak episode, the bar is still kept high. All the characters continue their surprisingly, consistently, compelling story arcs. Though a little predictable & schmaltzy at times, the story still has it's surprises and keeps us smiling and grimacing. Like the other seasons, this one is balanced with lightness. For me, the final 2 episodes alone are almost worth the price of this season. I was taken by the feature film-like soundscape, visuals and emotions evoked. It was rewarding to hear in the commentary that that was exactly what the creators intended. For that reason, those final eps would look fantastic on a big screen with a good sound system. Like the other seasons, it's obvious how much love was put in to this season and the final episodes. Fans will not be disappointed.

This is by far, one of the greatest animated series I've seen on TV. There is comedy, action, drama, suspense, charm, and wit dripping from every scene of this "kid's" show. My wife and I adore this series, and so does every person we've recommended it to so far. The Book 3 Collection has the most intensity of all the seasons of the show, and brings it all to a climactic and satisfying end. Fans of the series will not be disappointed, and those new to the show will want to go back and watch all the episodes they missed. Watch it, watch it, WATCH IT! It's not just any animated series. It's one of the best made to date.

I said it already. Twice. Yes, I'm a grown adult, and yet Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of my favorite series ever.

Season 3 is different from Season 1 and 2, on many aspects. It's a bit darker. Not only because of the more serious storyline, as Aang is getting closer to his confrontation with Firelord Ozai, but the images and the music are also darker as well. And yet, the humor isn't gone, quite the opposite. It takes a slightly darker tone at times, but overall, it remains pretty much the same, with great lines delivered almost perfectly.

The action is more abundant, but the themes are now more serious, as if the characters were understanding the easy-going days were now behind them. There is a more urgent tone in Season 3, which fits the context admirably. The story is very well structured in Season 3, leaving behind the more episodic form Season 2 and especially Season 1 had us used to. The animation is also improving over previous seasons.

The relationship between characters gets deeper as well, which makes Season 3 a perfect final season, one that matured very well and as expected.

Don't miss out on this great show!

The main characters in Complete Books 1 and 2 of Avatar, The Last Air Bender, were treated with great respect by the artists who took them very seriously. However, with Complete Book 3, either their attitude has changed or another set of artists has been given the job, because in my opinion, the drawings just barely escape being cartoons. Compared with the earlier works, this detracts from the illusion of reality that was a strong point.
But, having said that and judging by the enthusiasic involvment of my several grandchildren, whose ages range from 8 to 14 years, girls and boys,the latest Book is another highly entertaining episode in the struggle between good and evil, the small and weak against the overwhelmingly strong; a situation they easily identify with and react to on the side of the good. Although the story revolves around violence, there is nothing in the Books to which one can take exception and I think my money was well spent on the three of them.

Ever since I completed this series I knew that I would be purchasing it for rewatching purposes. This series has amazingly fleshed out characters with believable motivations who evolve believably throughout the series, is brilliant and introducing natural moments of humor and most importantly has continuity that builds on itself and really sets this universe apart even among other well written shows (comparably in my mind to Terry Pratchett's Discworld.)

The final book takes everything that was introduced before and speeds it to a logical and satisfying conclusion. Every character gets a role to play and the motivations for their actions make logical sense. The arcs in this series are amazing, and I am happy to have the opportunity to watch them again and again.
