Five years ago, The Legend of Korra first aired on Nickelodeon in the US, as a sequel series to the much-beloved Avatar: The Last Airbender.  While not the critical smash that A:TLA was, for me Korra stands up well as an amazing piece of storytelling, with gorgeous visuals to boot. In case you’re not familiar… Continue reading Legend of Korra, Five Years Later

The Legend of Korra – Peacekeepers

Korra just can’t catch a break.  Heading to Republic City to seek aid for the Southern Water Tribe only brings tensions with Mako to a breaking point.  Then, the President refuses to commit troops help defend the South, and Korra tries to go around him to General Iroh directly.  Unfortunately, Mako feels compelled by duty… Continue reading The Legend of Korra – Peacekeepers

The Legend of Korra – Civil Wars

I thought Part 2 put a solid finish on the various Civil Wars storylines.  Korra learns just how deep Unalaq’s lies and manipulation go, and Tenzin bonds with Ikki, and in doing so has a moment with Kya and Bumi to boot.  The Bolin/Eska situation is still less funny and more painful, but at least… Continue reading The Legend of Korra – Civil Wars

The Legend of Korra Book 2 – A Rough Start

Spoilers, if you must know. I meant to write these weekly, but hey, there’s a ton to process here!  The first two episodes set the stage six months after the defeat of Amon.  Korra can airbend, Mako’s a cop on the fast track to detective, and Bolin’s remade Fire Ferrets are terrible.  Asami is barely… Continue reading The Legend of Korra Book 2 – A Rough Start

Okay, we FINALLY have something to sink our teeth into here, but we have to wait until September to for Book 2 to start.  So let’s obsess over the trailer! Korra and Tenzin meditating.  Spirit world connection! Unalaq bending.  Such beautiful animation. Looks like…A FUNERAL??  Who are you killing, Bryke? The next part looks like… Continue reading Legend of Korra Book 2 Trailer!

Well, it seems like the show has barely started, and we are already at the season finale.  This Saturday at 11am, we see the endgame with Amon and Korra.  From the previews, it’s clear that there is a HUGE battle involving battleships, planes (launched from General Iroh’s ships?), airships, and who knows what else.  We… Continue reading The Legend of Korra Season Finale Preview

The Legend of Korra

This is a notice to those of you who wax nostalgic about the cartoons of your youth, and claim nothing they make these days can compare.  I bet you’re not watching The Legend of Korra, the follow-up series to Avatar: The Last Airbender, on Nickelodeon.  A:TLA was well known for being an excellent show, and… Continue reading The Legend of Korra
