    When the show originally aired I only occasionally got an episode here and there, and never got the show in its entirety. Now that it is on Netflix I am very excited to finally to get it in full instead of pieces here and there.

    Watching it in midst of my great worries over the health of my father, my dog's cancer, stress over money because of dental problems and loosing hours because of corona, ect...ect...

    This show has brought me and my husband some peace.

    Is anyone else enjoying the show as much as I am?

    It is one of the best animated series to me. The character development, the world building, the storytelling. It was too beautiful for words.

    I agree. Especially for a series made by Nickelodeon. I thought it was a little too mature for the audience that the Nickelodeon channel commanded.

    I've been curious about it. My oldest son (now in his 20s) watched it when it was originally on and I caught a few scenes here and there.

    Now my youngest son (age 10) has watched the entire show and told me all his favorite parts.

    He kept telling me, "You should watch it!", so last night I watched the first two episodes with him. I could tell what his favorite parts were because he would keep looking at me to see if I liked that part. Looks like we'll be watching the whole thing together. I'm looking forward to it.
