The Legend of Korra
I'm a huge fan of the original Avatar-The Last Airbender. The TV show, not that sorry excuse of a movie. That, in my world, never happened.
So when my friends (they have kids and keep up on these things—at least that's the excuse they use) told me that the new “Avatar” was out, I was excited. My awesome friend downloaded the first two episodes on I-Tunes and we watched it! Yay!
Yes, I still like cartoons. I will never get over it. Ever.
I was kind of surprised (having not seen even the tiniest if previews for this) that it's geared more toward teenagers. The original definitely went for the younger crowd—elementary school kids. This one might be following the original series' fans as they grow up. They're teenager-ish now, so they'll watch it, right?
Uh, let's mention that my friend and I just got finished watching it...I'm just a few years over *cough* 21.
Anyway, sorry, easily distracted today. I liked it. The original humor is still there, but somewhat subdued. I like Korra, the new Avatar, and the two brothers that she joined on the professional bending circuit. Extreme sports with bending? Yes please.
Not that I have an overly high standard for cartoons, but I can't think of anything I didn't like. There was mystery, humor, cool fighting, bending, good characters, a mystery or two, conflict and a horribly serious statue of Ang.
So yeah, I'll be watching more. If someone downloads it for me. If not, I'll have to wait until it comes to NetFlix.
