This is one of my favorite shows ever! Both me and my parents enjoy watching it. It is full of action and comedy and even includes some life lessons along the way. I also like that this show doesn't have chanting or talk about false gods, like some of those Chinese and Japan based shows have. I'd say that this series is rated PG for ages 10+ for violence and some very mild humor. Korra originally starts out bratty and a little disrespectful, but that behavior lasts only a few episodes and she learns respect and responcibility as the next Avatar. Although this is how a lot of young destined heroes start out. I don't see why this show is in the young adults section, because it is suitable for older kids, teens, and adults alike. This show is hilarious and a great show for the whole family

I don't get why people seem to hate this show so much. It's fantastic

A substantial continuation of the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender, with new characters and challenges that keep the story fresh. The entire concept of the avatar necessitates that this sequel series take place a couple of generations after the last story, so it has been interesting to see how the world has developed--steampunk technology has emerged, Airbenders are ever-so-slightly less rare--and meet the children and grandchildren of beloved characters from the original series. There are still plenty of funny moments to temper the serious plot, but overall this series feels a bit more somber in tone.

The Legend of Korra took me a couple of episodes to get into, mainly because Korra is such a contrast to good ol' Aang. She starts off smug and privileged with her Avatar status, though as the story progresses, her character definitely grows. This season's story is fantastic and tackles a problem that would certainly happen in the real world: nonbenders, who feel discriminated against by benders, rally against a leader who has the unbelievable power to take bending away from people. My only real complaint? I wish the season were longer!

Fantastic! I like it better than "Avatar: The Last Airbender" (which was amazing). Just my personal preference.

Maybe because of Avatar: The Last Airbender, I was expecting this story to develop slowly through all four "books", but it appears the first story ends with Book One. I thought the conclusion was a bit forced, and I agree with an earlier reviewer who stated that it seems like the creative team took the easy way out in several situations.
I still found it to be a lot of fun, though, and I look forward to Book Two.

It's not quite as solid as the series "Avatar: The Last Airbender" that precedes it but it's still lots of fun. It seemed like the Avatar series never took the easy way out whereas this one does a couple times. In Avatar there was a slow awesome buildup over the entire series to an amazing grand finale, but here it's not clear what the over arching plot will be. They start off really strong with a great villain but I think he had a lot more potential then the story let him develop and it seems like his arc is done by the end of episode 12. Enough comparisons to Avatar though. Good points of this series include the animation, voice acting, and an interesting world. The world building is the strongest point. The fusion of of technology with the more "magic" aspect of bending is cool and has sort of a steampunk vibe. The characters are pretty strong for the most part. Nice to see a really strong female character as the main. She is really great. Bad points are that 1 particular side character gets almost no development and her motivations seem very arbitrary. There is also a love triangle thing that seems really forced. Overall it's a really great show though, definitely recommend it to anyone of any age. There is a little more complexity sometimes then Avatar had but that's not a bad thing and kids will still get it. It's weirdly more complex yet more superficial then Avatar depending on the moment of the show. I guess it feels like there are more weak points overall but still, if you've seen the Avatar series it's cool because you see how the world changed and developed after Aang. Its a good show, I like it enough to care about it and want it to be better. Looking forward to book 2. Watch it!!! If you are into animation at all you won't be disappointed. The good aspects keep you engaged.

LOVE THIS SO MUCH! I can't decide which one is better: Avatar the last air bender, or Legend of Korra!!!!!!! They are both so awesome!

This is an AMAZING show. Seriously, I love it. Not as good as my favorite tv shows/fandoms Teen Titans (<3<3<3!!!!!!!!!!!) and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but it is amazing just the same. The love triangle REALLY messes with me though because it's so MESSED-UP (I swear, can Asami, Macco, Korra, and Bolin all just be FRIENDS!? PLEEEZ!?!?!?!), and although I normally love love triangles, this one's too messy to love. Even if it takes the fun of shipping out of the show. Speaking of shipping...the only couple I ship in this series is BolinxEska (which shows up in Season 2). Great, action-filled series, however. I haven't even watched the Last Airbender, and I loved it.

So what if it doesn't quite live up to the legendary standard of The Last Airbender? This series/season is exceptionally entertaining in its own right, with a memorable villain and an interesting "steampunk" aesthetic.

The new series will take place seventy years after the end of the Avatar: The Last Airbender story arc, with new characters and settings. The protagonist of the new series, Korra, the Avatar after Aang, is a hot-headed and rebellious young woman from the Southern Water Tribe who is "ready to take on the world." The series will follow Korra as she faces an anti-bender revolt while mastering the art of airbending from Aang and Katara's son, Tenzin. (From GoGoAnime.Com)
