Gryphons should have it so lucky
Re: The Legend of Korra - Book One: Air
I still find it surprising that they've gone so quickly from the early-industrial tech of A:TLA's Fire Nation to this early-20th-century environment with cars and electricity and radio and cameras. But then, this is a world where it took them about six months to go from the Mechanist's first prototype hot-air balloons to a fleet of massive war zeppelins. I guess they're just very, very efficient. But I would've liked it if the tech had been a little less advanced, a little more steampunk and bending-based.
It's not really that surprising when one considers all of the changes from the 1850s to the 1920s. Considering that they already had tanks and battleships, at least the Fire Nation was already well in the throes of the Industrial Revolution. And the Republic is made up of former Fire Nation colonies, so they'd presumably be about as advanced as well.
I have to say, so far, I'm even more impressed with this series than I was with TLA. TLA took about half a season or so to really find its voice, and this one's come out of Zone 3 punching.
So what's Mako/Korra shipping going to be? Makorra?
