Dear 100 Hour Board,

Do any of you watch the Dragon Prince? It's become one of my favorite shows. Please feel free to share what you like or don't like about it or just generally nerd out :)

Thanks!

Dear Pacha,

Yes! I had a few issues with Season 1—the story had a few too many holes in it and the animation was fairly stiff. But the show improved and I really started liking it. I'm always down for a good fantasy, and this is quite a creative one. The story is great, the magic is cool, and the characters are really, really likeable. I'm looking forward to Season 4!

Dear Pacha,

Yes, we watch The Dragon Prince in our house and, in general, we are big fans. Of course, we are huge fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender, so The Dragon Prince was an obvious choice to check out. It's really good, not fantastic; sometimes I feel like it's trying just a little too hard, though I admit it is getting progressively better. I will also admit I had high expectations for it, and it hasn't left me disappointed. I'm eager for more, for sure.

Also, with the increase in maturity level between ATLA and TDP, it makes me feel like they could seriously pull off an amazing animated The Stormlight Archives. I've given up hope that it will ever be live-action (and done well), but if made by the right people, it could be animated and it could amaze.

Dear Bait,

Due to reasons Kirito mentions, I thought Season 1 was pretty good, but by Season 2 I thought it was awesome. Season 3 wrapped things up surprisingly quickly, but I guess that's better than the opposite.

The world-building and magic system don't aren't as good as Avatar's, but they're not bad. The characters are the best part. Like in Avatar, they are multifaceted and dynamic, and their decisions make sense. I heard a true legend that they significantly changed the plot of season 3 because they decided one of the character's (Ezran) choices wouldn't be true to character as initially written. And stuff like that shows.

Dear Pacha,

I'm going to second everything that's been said, and add: GENERAL AMAAAAAYAAAAA AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I mean, the other characters are cool and I guess they have to be there, but when General Amaya showed up I fangirled SO HARD and I don't think I've recovered. I wish she was in every episode. I love how they just plop the sign language in there, no captions or anything. (Although it is hard for me to understand it with the choppy animation style and low color contrast with her gloves on.)

Dear Pacha,

I'm still a little stuck on the fact that Callum is voiced by the same actor that voiced Sokka in Avatar (and general similarities between the shows given they share Aaron Ehasz as well) but I generally enjoy it and really need to finish Season 3. It is definitely a lot darker and creepier than Avatar, but I appreciate that they're tackling difficult topics in a children's show. Last, my 7 year old thinks the Jerkface Dance is hysterical.

Dear Pacha,

minnow and I started watching it the moment it came out! While it isn't quite as good as The Last Airbender (well the tv series, it's a million times better than the movie), it's still a fun watch. My favorite moment:
