    Avatar: The Legend of Korra (2012)

    The sequel to Nickelodeon's excellent animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra takes place roughly 70-80 years after the events of the first series and follows a brand new Avatar named Korra as she studies airbending from Aang's son in Republic City, while also dealing with an "anti-bending revolution" that begins there as well.

    The show hasn't received an official date of when it'll start airing (sometime this year), but the clips and trailers shown so far look damn fantastic - definitely on my top anticipated shows of this year.

    I loved the original Avatar series (and I quite liked the Shyamalan film. It just felt like it was missing a lot... which of course it was, almost a quarter of the film was cut just before release; Sadly we may never see the proper version of that film) so I'm very much looking forward to this follow up! Hopefully it will retain the quality of the original.

    So I checked out the first 2 episodes of The Legend of Korra that were hosted on korranation.com last week.... holy sh*t, I think I've found my new favorite TV show this year. Just as good as the original Avatar, but it's not afraid to be its own entity... it's a new era with new challenges and a new outlook, but it's also one that still aware of the shadow left by the previous age (technology is a natural progression of the previous era's Fire Nation machinery) and it's heroes (the children of the first series' characters are kinda contrasts of their parents, with Aang's son Tenzen being so serious and reserved, while Toph's daughter Lin is so straight-laced and by-the-book chief of "metal-bending" police). Great art, animation, and music, stellar voice acting, Avatar's trademark sense of humor, and some of the sharpest writing and characterization that I've seen in years (main heroine Korra is definitely her own character and is a very interesting contrast to the previous Avatar, Aang, which is also reflected in the fact that she's a definite teenager with an independent streak compared to how Aang was at the start of the first series).

    Overall, one of the best cartoons I've seen in a long, long time.

    Wow. I thought everyone could at least agree on this. It is right up there with worst big budget movies I have ever seen. Since I am a big fan of the cartoon, it probably ranks 3rd place for most disappointing movie I have ever seen.

    1st) Matrix Revolutions
    2nd) Star Wars: The Phantom Menace
    3rd) The Last Airbender
    4th) Indiana Jones & KOTC

    If I taught a screenwriting class, this would be the first thing students watch as an example of what not to do.

    JasonN, are those episodes somewhere online still? Would love to check it out. Super excited for this.

    here is a site with some poor video quality versions of the screenings of the 1st two episodes. It is pretty much like I remember things going with the original series. 1st episode is a little rough as it rushes to get the universe established. 2nd episode is pure beauty. http://www.animeultima.tv/avatar-the...rra-episode-1/
