Following in the footsteps of "Avatar: The Last Airbender", "The Legend of Korra" does not disappoint. Writing is terrific, with a great mix of humor and depth. Character development is some of the best I've seen on any show, animated or otherwise. The pacing is so well done, it feels like the story could have been drawn directly from real life. Production value is very high -- beautiful drawing and animation and spot-on voice active. We watch this together as a family (mom, dad, and two pre-teen boys), and we each love it. For fans of the original show, there are just enough shout-outs to make you feel like an insider. To those new to this universe, you don't need to have watched the originals first -- but you'll want to go back and do so for the fun of it! For everyone, there is plenty of new material here, and it does not feel at all like a simple retread of the the original show. Cannot recommend this highly enough, especially for families to watch, enjoy, and discuss together.
