    You guys really do need to run Nick. That way we would at least have an idea when book 2 is coming. I love this episode, I think it is one of the most funniest episodes of ATLA ever. Keep the up the good job.

    I have to agree that Nightmares and Daydreams is probably the weakest episode of the series, at least for me. As was said here, although the concept of Aang being tense about the invasion coming so soon and unable to sleep is nice, and personally I enjoyed most parts of the dream sequences, there were some parts that felt like maybe they went a little too far.

    I strangely didn’t mind that it had a mostly funny tone—as an anime fan, I loved seeing Aang in those kind of cliché anime getups (I didn’t really think it was necessary to know exactly what animes were being referenced—like you guys, I only really recognized the Dragonball one at the beginning, it was more just this sense of Aang being in these roles of typical kind of over-the-top shonen anime that, in some ways, does bear some resemblance to ATLA and Aang’s battle with Ozai, but in other ways is so completely incongruous.)

    But as I think was pointed out here, it just felt like too much time was spent on this kind of funny/silly stuff, when that time could have been more balanced out with something else. (When the scene got into Appa and Momo sword fighting and rocks floating around, it got to be kind of too much for me, and hard to avoid emotionally disconnecting with what’s going on because it’s just getting too weird.)

    Same thing with the one serious dream of the episode—I didn’t mind that most of the dreams had a funny tone, but (again, as I think was said here) I also would have liked the one serious dream to stick to that serious tone. (Momo’s involvement there felt strange, and took away from the drama, I thought, and things like Toph’s eyes being missing, it was hard to know what to make of that. On the other hand, the moments like Katara in flames, the comet turning the world into a desolate, molten wasteland, and Aang trapped under the ice while Zuko as he knows him in the past stands over him all worked really well for me, because even though they weren’t all immediately clear, they all gave a powerful sense of symbolism, whereas I didn’t get that from Momo or the Toph moment.)

    I also think if the dream had been more serious, the moment when Aang wakes up, screaming and eyes bulging, would have been more funny, too. Or, that’s my take on it.

    Of course, this is definitely an important episode for Zuko. I really liked how we have kind of been building to this over the course of several episodes, and it didn’t happen all at once. (The late reveal of what actually happened in this war meeting near the end of the series also makes what sort of happens here all the stronger.)
