5.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Successor Feb. 16 2013
By Theo TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
As a series that honors its origins without ever being merely imitative of them, this may well turn out to be one of the all time great television spin-offs. Indeed, the very term "spin-off" seems somehow inadequate. For this is a true sequel, and one fully up to the task of standing on equal terms with its predecessor.

A lifetime has passed between the ending of Avatar and the beginning of Korra, and in that time the world of the four nations has moved on. Even during the scope of the original series, we saw that world in a state of technological ferment. In the time between the two series, this process has clearly marched on unabated. By the time Korra begins, we find ourselves in a world with technology comparable to early 20th century Earth.

To those who fell in love with the world of the first series, I'd say only this: don't worry, for there is nothing to fear here. The writers have not destroyed or replaced their original creation. Rather, they have profoundly deepened it. There is the sense of a real world with its own internal logic and course of development - a world that changes precisely because of its own reality. Integral to this is the fact that it's not just the technology that has moved forwards. Everything from the society's economic basis to its martial arts has changed since last we were here, but always in logical and internally consistent ways. You can tell that this is a show made by people with a deep respect for the integrity of their own creation.

As with the original series, this logical and consistent quality - this ability to just plain think things through - applies not only to the world-building, but also to the plot and story. At all times we have the sense of a tapestry being woven.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME SHOW April 16 2013
By Lo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I like the original "Avatar the last Airbender" with Aang better then these adventures but I'm biased because I met Aang and the gang first and fell in love with them. Now having said that - Korra is awesome. I love following a female avatar this time around and I also really liked how she's older and more experienced then Aang. Her journey is not so much about learning bending for a purpose but more for pleasure (no spoilers!) I also liked how Korra and her gang of friends are older then Aang. The world is very very different so if you're expecting to fall back into Aang's world with new people then you are in for a big surprise. That world is long gone and a new era (with new dangers) is here. Finally, for all those fans out there (like myself) that love Aang, "The Legend of Korra" clues us in about some of the things the gang did once the original series ended so you get to see and learn about all of your favorite characters all grown up!

5.0 out of 5 stars fast paced and exciting May 7 2012
By DeeLaM - Published on Amazon.com
After the original series Avatar: The Last Airbender ended, the Nickelodeon folks (for some reason unfathomable to me) quashed any hopes of ever reviving it. They eventually confirmed that fans had shown a positive response to Avatar Kyoshi and were interested in starting up a new series based on a female Avatar and to avoid a rehash of Aang's adventures it would be set in a single semi-modern city and feature people who are anti-bending of any element. True to their word, enter Avatar Korra. If you're wondering about Zuko's mom or are craving a continuation of the gang's adventures I recommend Avatar: The Last Airbender - The Promise, Part 1. The book raises more questions than it answers but it is definitely a start to unraveling the mystery. The rest of the comics are as of 5/18/2012 unpublished so we have no choice other than to be patient and let the series creators tell the story in their own time/way.

The legend of Korra starts off with Aang's successor, Korra learning Airbending under Aang's son Tenzin in the semi-modern Republic City. To avoid overlap with the last airbender Korra is shown to have already mastered the bending of the other 3 elements. To fill the need for a bad guy (terrifying guy, really) we have Amon - the leader of the anti-bender movement. For the sports lovers, there's the pro-bending championship featuring some really cool bending moves aaand we get to see more than just one or even two elements being bended at the same time (in a non-lethal environment)! For the pet lovers, there are characters Naga and Pabu who could easily grow to be as lovable as Appa and Momo. The story unfolds quickly and is very engaging. And of course, the animation and effects are great. The background theme is haunting and I've already added it to my list of favorites. There are some cheesy teen romance, comedy and some serious moments in Korra that will definitely, successfully appeal to older fans of the genre as well as the younger Avatar fans. I am adding this to my own Avatar collection :) Glad to finally watch more Avatar action.

As a note to fans of Aang - Nick has kept its promise of ensuring that the 2 series do not have much overlap. So of course, the beloved characters from Airbender either 'guest star' for brief moments or not at all. I've made my peace with not being able to enjoy more of the gang's (Aang, Katara, Toph & Sokka) adventures and whole-heartedly welcome this series as it gives me the opportunity to relate to new characters and watch their cool new bending (and non-bending) moves. So be warned, if you're expecting a rehash of Aang's series you will be sorely disappointed (and most likely give Korra a low rating). If you do embrace Nick's promise you will see the brilliance and hard work that has gone into making Korra a fast-paced entertainer.

Comment/disclaimer unrelated to product:
Some reviewers apparently feel the need to point out that the reviews that disagree with their own are either 'engineered by Nick' or somehow too good/bad to be true or plain imbecilic and then add to the melee by pointing out that it doesn't matter if their own reviews are disagreed with as its just an opinion/review and is totally valid. Honestly, review whatever you want and if you do so wish give a magnificently glowing positive or an utterly damned negative review. We all have a right to an opinion and are entitled to voice it in a safe environment. I ask only that you please make sure you're polite enough to not insult other reviewers. Amazon is a great place to shop & enjoy movies, music etc that relies on its customers to give honest reviews that will help other prospective buyers make their own decisions. I for one do not believe that Amazon would be stupid enough to allow fake reviews or accept some compensation from the product manufacturers to engineer positive reviews and believe that no one is conspiring against anyone here. And oh, just by the way - my review and comment are my opinions. It is not my intention to hurt, defame, conspire against or con anyone in any way, shape or form.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good golly, Miss Molly! April 23 2012
By Sache Refmar - Published on Amazon.com

Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko...
you haven't lost your touch.

Out of all the dull drivel that aired (aires) on Nickelodeon,
Avatar: The Last Airbender was a shining beacon in the primordial muck that was "entertainment" on February 21, 2005.

Demand was huge for the creators to extend their rich world into a sequel series.
Expectations were high,
opinions and ideas were formed,
and "bender" nuts set the bar.

The bar got obliterated.

Humor. Check.
Martial arts. Yep.
Endearing characters. Absolutely.
Continuity and details. Ja.
Incredible art direction. You can bet your tits.

Do yourself a favor and watch this quality television program and delightfully forget the atrocity of cinema known as "The LAST Airbender" ever happened.
Parents...you know what to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Korra Arrives Early April 4 2012
By J. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I just finished watching the first episode of Legend of Korra. I was very pleasantly surprised that it arrived early on Amazon. I have been looking forward to this show since seeing the preview at last year's Comicon. It is definitely different from the first three season of Avatar but very enjoyable. Korra is a very strong, willful teen girl who can kick butt and take names, but like Aang has a lot to learn about the world and her place in it. This episode does a good job of introducing new characters, giving some closure on old characters, and introducing a new world for the rest of the series. It left me exciting and looking forward to the rest of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the whole family April 29 2012
By michael s bovich - Published on Amazon.com
I was a dedicated fan of the original. My daughter (5) and I routinely watch the original series. I approached the new one with trepidation they might ruing the legacy (can you blame me after the movie) and hope that the original creators wouldn't let me down.

This new series has delivered beyond my expectations. It takes the original and advances it - creating something that is both familiar and new at the same time. For fans of the original, there are many shout outs and in-references to characters and events past. There is humor, drama, intrigue, and a villain with a mysterious enough back story to pull you in. I don't want to say too much and risk spoilers.

I also like the strong female role model. As a dad of two, its nice to see lead female characters. Avatar has always had strong female role models, and this series is no different.

Newcomers, do not worry if you haven't seen the original. My wife can count on one hand the number of original series episodes she's watched. She has watched all of the Korra episodes and had no difficulty following long.

I can't recommend this enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Outstanding April 13 2012
By Christopher - Published on Amazon.com

My hopes for the new show were incredibly high and already with the first episode the creators have blown past them providing more than I could have expected. The animation is absolutely beautiful, the voicing is excellent, and atmosphere and story already enthralling. The first episode is full of humor and plot points that already has me excited to see what's more to come.
