I always thought Earthbenders were the most dangerous powerset. I'd like to see an Earthbender villain.
The world just seems so much smaller in LoK than it did in A:TLA. I miss all the traveling they did on Appa!

I'm just glad Season Two isn't taking place in Republic City again.

You mean, in this show? We've had one major Earthbender villain before, Long Feng.

heh heh!

Did Katara buy that excuse?
Come to think of it, that's a good point. If the only way to restore the airbender population was through procreation, then Aang should've put conventional ideas of marital fidelity aside and had a whole gaggle of wives/concubines. Although that would never have gotten past Nickelodeon's censors.

2X3 Another solid episode that I was totally engrossed in. They really improved on the first season (which I still enjoyed!). Gone are the endless pro-bending competitions!
Hey.. i loved the pro bending scenes. Awesome and unique sport. I wish there was a top of the line video game like that!

As to the episode or S2 in general.. i wish that the uncle or rather his storyline takes a twist sometime because as it seems now it's very obvious and predictable which makes the whole main plot very boring.

S1 Amon was interesting and cool to watch but so far the plotlines in season 2 disappoint.

I hope it picks up and surprises us because everything else is quite good (i love the animation, design and colors in this show).

I sincerely doubt that the season is primarily about the uncle whose name I shall eventually learn, it'll be more about the spirits...

Same here. I thought the Pro-Bending was cool.
I would also kill for a good video game in the Avatar universe.

Does anyone know why they don't appear to have the first season DVD/Blu-Rays of TLoK on Netflix. I tried searching Legend of Korra, Korra, and Avatar: Legend of Korra and the closes thing it game was Legend of the Seeker. I find it hard to believe they don't have a show this popular there at all. I could it not streaming, but it seems really weird that they don't even have the disc sets.

They don't have original Avatar, either. Do they have any Nickelodeon shows?

I think Netflix recently dropped all Nickelodeon programming from their streaming service. I don't know why, exactly. Maybe the deal expired and they decided not to continue it.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

I enjoyed season 1 but it does take place too much in a very small area and I feel could have used another episode during the invasion.

The shows aren't the same, which is good, but I really miss the sense of exploration we had with TLA. I hope that with the next seasons we get a more worldy issue than a Republic City issue, and then a water bender civil war issue.

Which is why it seems so weird to me that they don't have anything for Korra. Usually if they don't have something that is out they'll have a page for it with an option to "save" it instead of adding it to your queue, but they don't have that for Korra. It's one of the only things that is available that I've come across that doesn't have any kind of page.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

A pretty interesting episode, and I'm really enjoying the political stuff and the focus on the Water Tribes. The revelation about Aang's parenting was disappointing but also not surprising - it makes plenty of sense and shows that best intentions can be harmful too. I wasn't sure about having Bumi and Kya around, but am liking them now. The "teleporting between North and South Poles" sounds a bit weird I agree, but it could also explain why the breakaway Tribe from the North ended up so far South without, you know... stopping somewhere closer along the way.

I'm finding Bolin and Eska to be very "meh." Which is sad, I like Aubrey Plaza and I feel like Eska and Denza could be fun... but not like this. Missing Asami.

I wouldn't be surprised if we see outright rebellion, especially with Unalaq's massive (guess here) overreach in arresting Tonraq and Senna. Really my only complaint about this political storyline is that they're making Korra kind of... dumb, if you ask me. She just dealt with a corrupt Water Tribe official misusing his authority last season, and now she's not even seriously protesting Unalaq here? I mean... "Oh Korra, we need the troops to protect the Southern Portal, which is why they clearly need to be preventing outgoing shipping and we need a military presence patrolling the streets and ordering Southern Tribesmen to stay in their homes." Seriously? That doesn't even make sense with Unalaq's stated reason for having soldiers at the South Pole. It's like he's trying to goad them into a rebellion so he'll have an excuse to take more control, and Korra for some reason can't see it.

I feel like this whole post is complaining, and I don't mean it to be that way. Definitely enjoying the show and excited to see where it goes.

He's her uncle. Family changes things.

My family is crazy, if they started a civil war I'd pick the right side (IMO obviously) and then take out the family member, screw that we share some DNA.
