Hello, I was wondering if you could consider adding new seasons to the last Airbender I would love to keep watching this show and I am amazed how good it is. I would greatly appreciate it if you would do that. 2600:1700:4E90:6530:10E1:7159:BA9C:D56 (talk) 04:39, 22 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
On the THEMES section of this article, there's a little bit too much of justification that reads as a college student's essay. This is the one:
The show also represents a diverse cast of characters in order to tackle the issue of marginalization. For example, in introducing a blind character like Toph and a paraplegic boy like Teo, the show depicted characters with vulnerabilities overcoming their physical and societal limitations. This is also true when it comes to the show's female characters. For example, female protagonist Katara faces systemic sexism when she reaches the Northern Water Tribe to learn waterbending. In another instance, her brother Sokka is initially dismissive of the all-female Kyoshi Warriors, but learns to respect and appreciate their skills. According to Kirk Hamilton of Kotaku, these themes represent the show's message that it is more important to be oneself than hew to societal expectations.
There is no need to explain to the reader and give them an opinion on how or why the show did what it did and to point it out. Let the reader form their own opinion and the series watcher too. Naming them and their diversity is one thing, but defining how their impact was in a specific way its a bit patronizing, as if the watcher needed help forming that opinion.
