April 16, 2022

After finally finishing our Book One Overview, we now arrive at the final two parts of our book one coverage,  with the 2010 adaptation by M. Night Shyamalan! But before we give our official BTE review, we have to take a quick detour to our other podcast, The Novie Elitists Film Podcast. Back in the early days of 2019, we recorded our 8th TNE podcast, covering The Last Airbender. And now on this feed, we present a far better version of it, editied to remove gaps of silence and less kid friendly material, for a more streamlined experience. Fair warning, this "commentary" Contains SPOILERS for ALL SEASONS of Avatar the Last Airbender, and the Legend of Korra. If you've not seen those, tune in next Saturday for a spoiler free discussion of the film.
