5.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Successor Feb. 16 2013
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Rushed Story, But Lots Of Fun Aug. 28 2014
By Mili Fay TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I prefer the original Avatar: The Last Air Bender, but I do like this series, too. It has great comedy moments, and I love Korra. I think the Love Triangle (or Love Square) moves far too quickly. I wish the writers took the time to develop the story more. It feels somewhat rushed. However, great fun!

As far as the Blu-Ray quality: There is one pixel white line between character's skin and the outline that I find irritating. I wonder if this would disappear on a DVD.

I'm really happy, because I got this on the 27th or the 28th of June when the actual date I should have gotten it was between the 12th and the 15 of July.

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!
