    I think there is already a thread about the Avatar series...But I guess a thread that is Korra specific would be alright.

    I am making a new one since I don't like Necroing the old threads that were already before.

    I'd recommend it, in case they reference things from the first series. Can't be sure until it airs...

    Yes, you should. Simply for the fact that it's a damn good series, ignore the abomination they call the movie.

    There is one thing that I have been wondering. Will they continue the spiritual aspect that The Last Airbender had? By spiritual aspect, I mean the interactions with the spirit world and Aang talking to past avatars. The two shows seem so different and so far apart. I think they'll avoid doing that to keep the distance and give Legend of Korra its own identity.

    I think they'll have to...it just might not come until later, since Korra is so headstrong and out-of-touch with that part of the Avatar at this point.

    That makes sense. Anyone wonder if the anti-bending dude is supposed to remove bending from the avatar world since technology would make bending um...unnecessary? Just a thought that I had when I saw his big "revelation." I would like to also learn more about the avatar world...

    I have. It is different. Part of me feels like the "magical" part of it is gone, not that it is a bad thing. However there has been a lack of actual training for Korra. I do miss the roaming around the world aspect of the old one. I am liking this show though. It stands on its own.

    This last episode felt a little like a filler...we were told there would be no such thing. So now I am curious as to how it will fit with the bigger picture.

    I have some theories about the show. Some more wild than others.

    Theory 1: Amon (sp?) is the first of a process that ends bending and the avatar. As the world progresses through industrialization, bending will become the forgotten and even mythical art of the past. With the advent of modern technology, humans simply don't need to bend anymore. What we are seeing here may be akin to what happened to the Jedi in Star Wars (yes I had to throw that in there).

    Theory 2: Amon was meant to give bending powers to people, not take them away. Perhaps to restore the air benders. It would take hundreds if not thousands of years for Aang's lineage to do that, but with Amon, the process could be sped up a lot faster. However somewhere down the line Amon became twisted. Maybe it will be Korra's trial to convert Amon.

    Theory 3: Amon is part of a much larger and darker conspiracy to rid United Republic of benders loyal to Aang's ideals. Perhaps the United Republic is more advanced than the Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, and the Water Tribes. Amon would then be in place to set up his own army of benders for, wait for it....world domination! It is up to Korra to uncover this truth and stop Amon (or who ever is pulling the strings) before it is too late.

    This show is good but when compared to the old series it lacks the heart or the fun spiritedness of its predecessor.
    Korra isn't near as likeable or sympathetic as Ang was.
    I am sure they will give the character somegrowth in that area,but for right now,it just isn't there.
