I really think some people don't understand the history behind the "history" that are watching at all. Many people 'see', but not 'observe'. This series have a lot of connotations, such politics and social, from a showdown with a dictator; unto to release of real feelings. Almost all characters have a full evolution of her personality... even Naga hahaha. At first I agree looks like a little child's series, but think is a masterpiece in all respects. I recommend this series to all public, seen or not any other series of the Avatar's universe. PS. James Cameron's 'Avatar' not included. xD

avatar

Characters that didn't have any logic. Annoying rebellious acts for no apparent reasons. "Wise" elder characters who bicker and are useless. Story line was inexcusably weak, character development was pathetic, and it was altogether a bad show. Original Airbender was good, this was not. Teen drama crap.

avatar

Just watched all of this in a few days without having seen Avatar at all. I thought it was pretty good. Really liked the animation, the rather adult themes for a kids show, and the world built in the show. Pretty good. I'm sad I only started watching it after it was over.

avatar

Season 1: 5/10 - Unfocused Season 2: 3.5/10 - Garbage (It's only here to create retcons and plot holes) Season 3: 5.5/10 - Anarchism rules (Uninteresting villains) Season 4: 6.5/10 - Finally (the only one I enjoyed because has a solid story and a good villain but losts it self mid-way through)! Overall: 5/10

avatar

Meanwhile the journey of Aang is about a *human being turning into an Avatar*, *Korra's journey is about an Avatar turning into a human being.* Just as brilliant and as incredible as The Last Airbender. Unfortunelly, some peopole does not sees it that way.

As the successor to Avatar, I feel like many people had their hopes up that it would be the greatest thing ever. This is not the case, and that's OK. The characters tend to fluctuate in their quality, sometimes seeming to develop one way, only to then change in another way. This gives the show a teenage drama-esque feel to it that some may appreciate and others loathe. The villains are representative of flaws in society, from oppression to too much governmental control vs. too little. That being said the issues the villains bring up are never really resolved. The biggest offender of this is season two when the political conflict is completely forgotten to instead focus on [spoiler] giant spirit laser beams [/spoiler]. So while I still think this is a good show in its own right, its definitely no Avatar. But who can top perfection?

avatar

What the fuck is this garbage? I'm almost halfway through the second season and half the show so far has been centered around romantic dramas and politics/courtroom dramas—what am I watching? Fucking Suits? Banal, drawn out storylines, deus ex machinas; this show is not even half as good as Avatar.

avatar

Starts interesting only to give up, try to fix some flaws in the third and fourth season yet still fall in pure neoliberalist garbage. The best thing will always be Korra's trying to piece herself after years of isolation and finding balance with herself. Everything else, especially the romance subplots, is a failure. Watch this video (and the others from the series by the same user) for a more concrete opinion: https://youtu.be/ModX151Ipgs

It's been years since I finished the series, but as I remember it, the writing for the villains was this series' strongest feature. Most had believable motives and weren't just power hungry or evil for evil's sake. I found myself for rooting for characters like Amon and Zaheer far more than I did for Korra. The show faced many hurdles with its uncertain future, possible cancellation and online-only release, so this may have played a role in some of its shortcomings. It seems clear to me that the creators wanted to push the envelope and flip all the previous tropes upside down, but at times it came at the cost of believability. I found Korra to be an unlikable character in general, even with the personal growth that came out of her traumatic experiences. Many of the other characters feel like soulless copies of archetypes that were successful from A:TLA, with nowhere near the same level of complexity or development as they had. Aside from the characters, season 2 in particular seemed to make a real mess of things. The Avatar origin story was interesting and reasonably well done, but the Power Rangers style spirit battle at the end was just kind of stupid. If you liked _Avatar: The Last Airbender_, then you're more likely to enjoy _The Dragon Prince_, which I find to be the true spiritual successor. It still tackles some sociopolitical issues and doesn't play it safe with subject matter, but it does it in a much more enjoyable and believable way.

Good series. The finale is a little lame though in the very end. Instead of winding up with any of the guys. Korra suddenly realises she is a lesbian...the End.
