Tales of Ba Sing Se

Not going to write about politics now because I have nothing to say that isn't obscenities.

So instead I will remember the third season of BBC's Sherlock. I stopped watching because the writers forgot the plot. I enjoyed the show, but I wasn't attached enough to the characters to watch based on them alone.

In contrast, but the time I reached the Avatar: The Last Airbender episode Tales of Ba Sing Se, I was deeply attached to everyone involved. I struggle to pick a favorite tale. Iroh helping everyone around him while mourning his son? Sokka temporarily rocking it at haikus? Zuko's sweet be awkward date?

Well, one thing that annoys me is while the male characters each get their own story, Katara and Toph share a story and it's about getting a makeover. But still, overall, it will always be one of my favorite episodes.
