The Legend of Korra holds it's own as a sequel. Action packed, beautifully shot and animated, Korra sets itself apart form The Last Airbender in every way.

The character development and plot line has been consistent to the franchise's theme and fan's expectation. Brilliantly paced as a series, it is unfortunate that Nickelodeon dropped the ball with this one. Korra was such a great successor to its predecessor that I strongly hope to see a sequel to Korra featuring an earthbending avatar.

I cannot give this show enough praise. My Avatar void is empty without Korra or Aang. Without a doubt one of the best animated shows ever created.

Don't know about television politics and such but this show certainly got some very awesome mature vibes for a simple cartoon.

I love the Last Airbender, maybe a little more, and it had the advantage of being fresh and original. But Legend of Korra tackled much more challenging storylines.

Aang and the first team Avatar were fighting a relatively simple battle against a colonising force led by a mad ruler. While they dealt with the idea that the people on the 'wrong' side of a war were still people, the goal of training and defeating the fire-lord is still pretty straight forward narratively and morally.

But Korra takes place in a post-Aang world, dealing with politics and compromise and maintaining the world after the big heroic war. The Avatar's role is to maintain balance, but that does not tell the Avatar what balance is meant to look like.

This struggle was what made the arcs in Korra so compelling. She did not always know what she was doing and sometimes the Avatar's actions had the capacity to make things worse.

Also the emphasis on family was really interesting, this was something that started in Last Airbender and continued on, where the importance and potential benefit of a strong family connection is balanced against the realities of dysfunction within some family groups and the ability people have to create their own families.

A great show and continuation to Avatar: The last airbender. It has massive leaps forward in terms of time and technology. The series takes place in an industrial revolution, I enjoyed this series greatly, but doubt there will be a sequel. Unfortunately.

It's not bad, but it isn't great either and it will never be anywhere near as good as The Last Airbender.

A good series with lots of thought behind it, but it didn't get the support of the network that it should have and only put out 13 episodes a season which just wasn't enough to fully flesh out the potential the story lines had.
