Gaah, I love both of these episodes so freaking much! They spotlighbt two of my favourite characters. :3

'The Blind Bandit' is just amazing because it introduces Toph, who is made of awesome and shiny things, and has some epic fight scenes, and a tiny bit of Taang (which is <3). Also, Sokka and his fashion. xD How can you not love that?

So, yeah. The series wouldn't be nearly as awesome if this episode hadn't happened, because then there would be no Toph, and what kind of Avatar doesn't have Toph?

'Zuko Alone' is one of the few episodes that almost made me cry. D: I feel so bad for Zuko, but I'm so glad that we get to learn more about his past, and see him being awesome and heroic and stuff.

'Never give up without a fight' doesn't just apply to Zuko, either. It applies to Zutarians, because we've stood tall through everything, and keep hopeful no matter how bleak thing seem. :3

Also, fantastic fight scene. I love it when Zuko uses his swords, and I think he should do it way more often. I always end up ticked off at the villagers, though. Yeah, yeah, they've been through a lot and it's hard to forgive and blahblahblah, but they liked him before they knew who he was, so why not keep liking him? :/

So, yeah, awesome episode. <3
The animation of the great and wonderful Toph's introductory episode is remarkably fluid!

I love how they totally coined the wrestling - having someone sing someone else's nation's anthem. The ridiculous dialogue. The over the top stunts.

*lets out a sigh* I missed Toph during this rewatch. I really did. So many times I'm watching an episode, and thinking, "How long 'til Toph comes along?" I agree with wohitzi - she is made of awesome!

I love Katara's threat. "Yeah. I didn't think so."

Okay, see, this whole part with Toph and Aang and "What's your problem?!" shows their closer in age, maturity, and they don't just fawn over each other, but there can be actual CHEMISTRY there! Totally Taang. Although I totally favor Toph/Sokka...what's the short version of it?

And if people didn't know that the Fong family had a daughter, how did the wrestlers know how to find them?

Ah, Zuko, full of angst. But who I REALLY feel sorry for is that Ostrich Horse...it sounds so miserable!

Chibi Azula was soooooo cute! Evil. But cuuuute! Stupid villagers. He just saved your...ahem...rear ends...when you couldn't do anything about those pretend soldiers, and then you kick him out? Because you're afraid of fire? I always thought that kid was annoying, and then at the end, "No, I hate you!" It's his damn fault Zuko was outed to begin with!! He ONLY saved his life! Sheesh!
