Oh man, I know! That is exactly how to put it XD Stomp The Yard hehehe. I also didn't like the idea that only the most advanced Firebenders could create their own fire. It's like...if they couldn't do that like as an army, how the hell did they conquer the world? They would have been crushed by the other elements.
Agreed, the kids and I absolutely love the show. There is a good balance to it and the characters are so dynamic. Oh, and don't forget that Earthbending is cool and powerful; in the movie, not so much. It looked like a bunch of chinese guys imitating "Stomp the Yard" lol
