After the original series Avatar: The Last Airbender ended, the Nickelodeon folks (for some reason unfathomable to me) quashed any hopes of ever reviving it. They eventually confirmed that fans had shown a positive response to Avatar Kyoshi and were interested in starting up a new series based on a female Avatar and to avoid a rehash of Aang's adventures it would be set in a single semi-modern city and feature people who are anti-bending of any element. True to their word, enter Avatar Korra. If you're wondering about Zuko's mom or are craving a continuation of the gang's adventures I recommend Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Promise, Part 1. The book raises more questions than it answers but it is definitely a start to unraveling the mystery. The rest of the comics are as of 5/18/2012 unpublished so we have no choice other than to be patient and let the series creators tell the story in their own time/way.

The legend of Korra starts off with Aang's successor, Korra learning Airbending under Aang's son Tenzin in the semi-modern Republic City. To avoid overlap with the last airbender Korra is shown to have already mastered the bending of the other 3 elements. To fill the need for a bad guy (terrifying guy, really) we have Amon - the leader of the anti-bender movement. For the sports lovers, there's the pro-bending championship featuring some really cool bending moves aaand we get to see more than just one or even two elements being bended at the same time (in a non-lethal environment)! For the pet lovers, there are characters Naga and Pabu who could easily grow to be as lovable as Appa and Momo. The story unfolds quickly and is very engaging.

I just finished watching the first episode of Legend of Korra. I was very pleasantly surprised that it arrived early on Amazon. I have been looking forward to this show since seeing the preview at last year's Comicon. It is definitely different from the first three season of Avatar but very enjoyable. Korra is a very strong, willful teen girl who can kick butt and take names, but like Aang has a lot to learn about the world and her place in it. This episode does a good job of introducing new characters, giving some closure on old characters, and introducing a new world for the rest of the series. It left me exciting and looking forward to the rest of the series.

I was a dedicated fan of the original. My daughter (5) and I routinely watch the original series. I approached the new one with trepidation they might ruing the legacy (can you blame me after the movie) and hope that the original creators wouldn't let me down.

This new series has delivered beyond my expectations. It takes the original and advances it - creating something that is both familiar and new at the same time. For fans of the original, there are many shout outs and in-references to characters and events past. There is humor, drama, intrigue, and a villain with a mysterious enough back story to pull you in. I don't want to say too much and risk spoilers.

I also like the strong female role model. As a dad of two, its nice to see lead female characters. Avatar has always had strong female role models, and this series is no different.

Newcomers, do not worry if you haven't seen the original. My wife can count on one hand the number of original series episodes she's watched. She has watched all of the Korra episodes and had no difficulty following long.

I can't recommend this enough.

My hopes for the new show were incredibly high and already with the first episode the creators have blown past them providing more than I could have expected. The animation is absolutely beautiful, the voicing is excellent, and atmosphere and story already enthralling. The first episode is full of humor and plot points that already has me excited to see what's more to come.

Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko...
you haven't lost your touch.

Out of all the dull drivel that aired (aires) on Nickelodeon,
Avatar: The Last Airbender was a shining beacon in the primordial muck that was "entertainment" on February 21, 2005.

Demand was huge for the creators to extend their rich world into a sequel series.
Expectations were high,
opinions and ideas were formed,
and "bender" nuts set the bar.

The bar got obliterated.

Humor. Check.
Martial arts. Yep.
Endearing characters. Absolutely.
Continuity and details. Ja.
Incredible art direction. You can bet your tits.

Do yourself a favor and watch this quality television program and delightfully forget the atrocity of cinema known as "The LAST Airbender" ever happened.
Parents...you know what to do.

To start off with, I have been with the series since the beginning. I was skeptical at first but upon watching my first episode of Avatar: the Last Airbender, I was hooked. When I heard about The Legend of Korra, I was excited.

The Good:

This series is not all bad. J. K. Simmons voicing Tenzin is absolutely delightful. The animation is wonderful - at least the hand-drawn style of animation. The characters, while not as well thought-out and designed as the old crew from Avatar, are decent enough to keep me entertained. As well, the villain, Amon, was delightfully portrayed and enjoyable to watch.

The Average:

Given that this is a more "roaring '20s" time period, the show has a bit more of a 20's musical scheme. This works for the time frame but is jarring compared to the previous season. The radio announcers have that old school 20's voice to them, and it feels like you're in turn of the 20th century Chicago or New York with some added elemental abilities.

It's a drastically different theme, not only in the technological advancement but the theme of the series. We're not trying to save the world here - the world has already been saved. We're not going all over to try and defeat the Fire Lord. It has a local feel, with local problems. This is not a good thing, and it's not a bad thing. It's just a difference.

The Bad:

As mentioned previously, the characters on a whole are not as well designed. There was a romance shoehorned in that at times felt incredibly forced, and some characters act incredibly awful in order to get the "primary couple" together. With less time in this series, parts of the plot felt forced and rushed.
