So, television-loving masses, I was expecting "Legend of Korra" to be a flop of a sequel to "A:TLA". Mediocre, at best. I thought, "They can't possibly pull it off. No new series will ever be able to hold a candle to the old. Heck, it won't even be able to hold a match."
Then I watched it.
AND IT HELD UP A WHOLE STINKIN' FIREPLACE, YO'!!!!
Korra is one of the best female characters I've yet come across, along with Lisbeth Salander, Katniss Everdeen, and Revy from "Black Lagoon". Watching her in action made me wish I was a stunningly beautiful kick-butt Avatar instead of just stunningly beautiful.
Furthermore, the animation, music, and writing is still top-notch. The animation may even be a step up from the first series, if the first two episodes are any indication. The pacing is good, the action sequences superb, and if I have any complaint it's that more episodes haven't been released early yet.
My advice-- nay, my COMMAND-- is that you go watch "Legend of Korra" on April 14th... or online, if you can. Watch it, and LOVE IT. Love it like your last-born child, and not your first-born, who will inevitably disappoint you.
War out, peeps.
