Avatar: The Last Airbender (Season 1 – 3)

I repeat, this is not the M. Night Shyamalan movie. This animated show is probably one of the best Nickelodeon shows, I have seen. Netflix viewers will be able to see all four elements in action and a group of brave and adventurous heroes and villains, ready to fight.

The season finale is finally here! Noelle Stevenson reboots this series from the 1980s. If you like girl power and good overcoming evil then you will enjoy this epic animated series.
