one of the reasons i love the show is just how complex it truly is. It does a great job of showing different points of view. Most of the "bad guys" aren't bad, they are flawed people and you can disagree with them. best written series (ATLA & LOK).
"If a fish lives its whole life in this river, does he know the river's destiny? No! Only that it runs on and on, out of his control. He may follow where is flows, but he cannot see the end. He cannot imagine the ocean."
