Martial arts with quest to save the world, yadda yadda, redeemed by excellent writing and not-stupid villainy. If you haven’t watched it yet, watch it: it’s insanely too good for Nickelodeon, and possibly animated television in general. It’s on Netflix, but if you feel like buying it, here’s the link. Note: I haven’t seen the live-action version, and I’ve been told by pretty much anybody not to rectify that.
…so far that I’m having trouble figuring out why it wasn’t canceled after a single season. It’s like the writers HATE the Idiot Plot, like the idea of using visual cues to allow you to keep track of what’s going on, and think that ‘subtle’ is preferable to ‘beat you over the head’ when it comes to revealing things.
I’m pretty sure that all of the above violates union rules, or somethin.
