I ran a search and was surprised that there wasn't a thread for Korra.

Season 2: Spirits is well under way and the latest two parter answered a lot of questions, including a few from The Last Airbender.

Anyone else catch the latest episode?

I don't think there are many Korra viewers on avs. I could be wrong of course, but whenever I mention it no one really seems to care. tongue.gif

I thought those episodes were fantastic. From the animation (I'm really glad this series made the jump to HD) to the acting to the score to the back-story, there wasn't much not to like.

For anyone out there who hasn't seen Korra/The Last Airbender, I'd highly recommend them both. Don't let the fact that it's on Nick scare you away. They're both great, though they both take a few episodes to find their groove. While not really directly comparable (though some elements may be), I think that if you're a fan of Miyazaki's films you'd like these two series. The depth of the world and characters along with the questions of morality are similar.

But whatever you do, don't judge the show based on Shyamalan's horrible, horrible movie.

Agreed.

There was a thread for the bluray release that saw several posters, which is why I was so surprised that there wasn't a topic already.


For those who haven't seen it, the entirety of The Last Airbender (animated, not the Live Action abomination) is on Netflix and Amazon Prime streaming. Give at least the first season a watch, it is an amazing show.

Korra is the sequel series that takes place about 70 years later and many of the events assume you watched TLA all the way through.

I have all of Avatar on DVD, and I'm saving the Korra episodes until it finishes its run, which I expect will be some time at the end of 2015.

Expect to wait until summer 2016 before the whole series is on bluray. Season 2 is said to be 24 episodes long. There will be 4 seasons in total.

I thought it was 4 seasons with each season being 12-14 episodes each?

**searches**

Yep. Looks like that's the case.

Though it looks like what the creators consider a season is different from the network's perspective. The creators are sticking to calling each 12-14 episode arc a Book, so to them, there are 4 Books. For the network, Season 1 is Books 1 & 2 and Season 2 is books 3 & 4.

So Spirits is almost done... that sucks.

Book 2 should conclude some time around the new year, and hopefully books 3 and 4 will run in fall 2014/2015. The lengthy process of animating the series could delay the release dates, of course.

They have been running all multi part episodes together, last night we got the second two parter of the season. I expect the finale to be another two parter or maybe more.

After all the story advancement of that last two parter, and a week off I was let down by this episode. 5 more episodes to go it seems.

I would say this episode made up for the last one. Bringing back so many old characters from TLA, and some plot advancement to top it off.

Is anybody still watching this since it's computer only?

I thought Season 3 was good much better then 2. Looking forward to starting season 4, just hate watching them on my computer.

Apparently, he never watched the Airbender 'toons; there's no way to mess that up unless you're really trying.

I'm still watching. The series has surpassed TLA in my eyes. It's more mature, which makes sense of course given the ages of the characters, and so it just feels more relevant.

It was interesting, darn shame they moved it online. I've had issues watching the show from their web site when I use Firefox (and I have the latest version), works better on Safari.

Same thing with other anime now available only on-line. I'm going to have to subscribe to Netflix if I want to see the final season of Star Wars:Clone Wars or any future episodes of Dragons:Riders/Defenders of Berk.
