From the creators of the Award-winning Avatar: The Last Airbender, comes a new TV series that continues the exciting adventures of element bending. When Avatar Aang passes, he is reincarnated as a girl named Korra, from the Southern Water Tribe. Against the wishes of her guardians, Korra leaves the safety of her home to travel to Republic City. Before long, Korra’s Avatar skills are put to the test when she encounters a group of Chi-blockers led by a masked man named Amon. With his Equalists followers, Amon plots to gain control over Republic City and ultimately rid the world of the “impurity” of bending. Korra and her friends will stop at nothing to capture him, leading to an Avatar adventure like nothing before in Legend of Korra: Book One: Air!

I've read other reviews comparing the two and for me it comes down to a few simple things:
This is a DIFFERENT avatar. Just how I can appreciate Aang for always trying to remain peaceful and balanced, I can also appreciate Korra for her hotheadedness. Fact is she is in a world that does not need an avatar and its refreshing to see her character develop throughout the series. (Honestly I would love to see a 3rd series with Avatar Kyoshi which would be a completely different story arch too!) Seriously though, how many times do we want to see the same regurgitated story line where a character has it completely together, knows their purpose and how to accomplish it? This makes the difference with LOK and why I enjoy watching it.
Next, the supporting characters that make up Team Avatar are not master benders. There shouldn't even be an argument here. ATLA Katara was a master after book 1 and Toph is just a bamf from the very beginning. For LOK we aren't dealing with that at all. So sure we can't expect kick ass bending but again, its for taking it for what it is. I feel like LOK makes up with that some seriously awesome fighting sequences.
BOTTOM LINE: I love ATLA, the comic series and LOK. Fans who love the original, who can appreciative 2 different characters with 2 different journeys will love this show as well. It still is it the best animated programming I have ever come across.
Pay attention to the details in the animation, movements, and characters and any watcher won't be disappointed.
The music in this show is amazing, the animation is stunning and the characters are well, they can be cliche, but they work and complement the show. Korra herself is a badass, The show has action, adventure, politics, romance (not the best, but it does work) and plenty of scenes that you will want to watch over and over again. The soundtrack is great, and I listen to it often on Youtube when I study.
Shortly after watching book 1, I purchased books 2 and 3 and am ready for book 4 when it releases. I am going to check out ATLA for sure because LOK blew me away, and fans are constantly raving about how ATLA is even better than LOK.
Get the blu ray for this series because it comes with TONS of extras and if you are dreaming of one day becoming an animator, there is a lot this show can teach you from the extras. The extras show what the original animation for the show looked like before it became finalized, and it was really insightful. Audio commentary is included as well, but there isn't as much commentary included for that compared to books 2 and 3.
I wish I could have been allowed to watch ATLA like my friends had so I could have fond memories of it, but I can always start now. And if you think this is just a kid's show, think again. My parents watched the entirety of books 1 and 2 with me, and are ready for 3 and 4. It's a shame more shows like LOK aren't made, but then again, only few become masterpieces-and so, I am off to watch ATLA, which began the world so many love. (And just never watch the movie by Shyamalan.....it was sooooooooooo bad. I feel so bad for the fans, because the movie was terrible. Pretend it never existed.)
