i've been waiting days for this show. i've already seen avatar twice. the crazy thing is i can see both sides. the screenwriter in me did cringe at certain lines, but overall i think i have to side with michael that it is such an immersive, amazing experience that i literally felt like i was on that planet for the time. indeed, the technical elements contribute a great deal to that, but you can't dismiss the creativity behind it and the story draws you in even though it's familiar. this is no FernGully.

keep up the good work.

If you're thinking of investing time in seeing Transformers allow your snobbery to protect you: Just Not Worth It!
