Description

Team Avatar returns! Korra and her friends have rid Republic City of Amon and the Equalists, but now they face an even bigger threat as the Spirit and Human worlds collide! Dark Spirits start to appear and randomly attack humans, and the only one who seems to know how to deal with these enemies is Korra’s uncle, the Chief of the Northern Water Tribe. Korra chooses to follow her uncle to understand more about the Spirit World, but when her father, Chief of the Southern Water Tribe, disagrees with some of his teachings, it spawns an all-out war between the two tribes with Avatar Korra caught in the middle! To stop the world from being permanently overrun by the Dark Spirits, it’s up to Korra and her friends to embark on a journey that takes them deep into the mythology of the mystical Spirit World, encountering creatures like nothing they’ve seen before, and discovering the truth about the very first Avatar!

What Needs to Be Done

Oh joy, another review for the entire season based on viewing only a small fraction of it. But I won't let that stop me! This is going to be a shorter review, since anyone (presumably) reading a season 2 review has seen season 1.

By necessity, this will be part review of season 1, part what season 2 needs to do to be truly good.

So, what was good in the premier? First off, the animation is top notch still, perhaps even better than Book 1. The spirit designs seem intriguing and every thing was amzingly well drawn, as always. There was one moment involving a plane that appeared to be CGI, and didn't look as good as the rest of the animation, but this was a brief moment so not much of an issue.
The music was as good as always, and when the show was funny, it was quite funny (I'm really liking the twins).
The bending is still fun to watch, even if it wasn't used a ton in this episode.

What was less good? The relationships. The individual characters are plenty interesting, but in many cases they don't mesh very, particularly any relationship with Korra. Whenever she was talking with her dad, or Tenzin or her uncle, or Mako, it felt very stilted and forced. It was all exposition for the plot. In many cases it was repititious. (We get it Korra, you feel like they're trying to control. Seriously, we got it the first 5 times).

And this is worrisome, because while Book 1 exceled in so many ways it fell short in one very key aspect.

See, Mike and Bryan had stated they wanted to reduce/remove filler episodes and focus on telling a story with as tight and continuous a plot as possible. And they did. And the plot was good. But it turns out that if you focus so heavily on the plot, there is little time left to develop the characters. We need look no further than the Mako/Korra relationship. All the key points of it happened, but all the little things along the way that would make it an interesting relationship for us to watch were left out, since of course they needed to focus more on the plot. At least for me personally, I couldn't have cared less about their relationship, because we didn't get to see a relationship. No, we got the plot of their relationship. The spark notes version. I'm rambling a little, but this is the most important point.

Book 2 could tell the most amazing story with the most amazing bending drawn with the most amazing animation, but if they don't put more time and effort into the characters, it won't really matter. A character driven plot will always be more interesting than plot driven characters, and if book 2 doesn't fix this, then this series won't live up to its potential.

So, based on Book 1 and the fact that Book 2 doesn't, so far, appear to be fixing the character issue, I can only give this 4 stars. Alhough I would give it 4 and a half, if I could, just for Bolin and his new girlfriend.

A NEW ERA HAS BEGUN!

The first season of "The Legend of Korra" was all I could've wanted from an animated fantasy-action series: a unique show set in a fantastical world full of amazing action, escalating adventure, and truly unforgettable characters, not to mention some fun humor along the way. As an avid fan of the magnificent cartoon that inspired it, "Avatar: The Last Airbender," "Korra" has rapidly managed to meet and even exceed its predecessor in such an unexpectedly short amount of time. The stakes are greater, the tension is even higher, and the stories have definitely grown much more complex at this point. The best part of it all is that both shows have grown and matured with us over the years, and there's honestly no telling where the story of the Avatar will go from here. Based on the two episode season premiere, I can already tell this latest book, Spirits, easily holds so much potential to become one of the most definitive and unforgettable seasons not just of this year, but of both the entire runs of "Avatar" and "Korra." So, needless to say, I'm absolutely thrilled to see what these new episodes hold in store. With its stunning animation, well-developed characters, and awe-inspiring settings, there's simply no denying that "The Legend of Korra" is truly one of the top animated programs on TV right now, and at the rate it's going, it can only get better from here.

Korra season 2

Best ever. It started out weird but now that I've seen episode 2 I love it. I have high thoughts and hopes for this season.
