(This bit also appears in my review of The Last Airbender, so if you to read that first, skip to the end!)
From a critical point of view: I watched The Last Airbender series while I waited for the second season of Korra. I loved this a lot, for several reasons, but I noticed a huge difference between the two shows. All of my friends seem to have preferred either one to the other, but not me. I saw the genius behind both of them and I enjoyed the evolution from one to the other. Be honest, if they would've copied the first series it would not have been nearly as good. And I will debate anyone who doesn't feel that the first was excellent ground work for the second one!
If I am completely honest, if you grew up with Aang, then you should be grown up enough to enjoy Korra. So, if you don't... I just have no clue what is wrong with you. This series was spectacular: You had a fierce strong girl as your leader who admitted to having her own faults and who grew up right before your eyes. I dare you to name any female characters who are this badass! She fears death, like we all do, she loves and protects her friends, like we all do! She depends on her family as much as they depend on her and even if sometimes she thinks she is stronger than she is, she gets knocked right back into reality! It's smart, beautifully written and something I just can't wait to share with my kids! Korra is truly my hero!
Make sure you check out these four awesome seasons!
Until the next item on my list!
