I am a fan of the first Avatar series. So i have high hopes for this one too. From what I have seen on the official site, and from other sources it looks really good. One thing I have heard that makes me somewhat disappointed is that its supposed to be shorter than the previous series. Oh well we can't have everything our own way.

I have 2 problems with this new series... For one, she's already mastered everything but air... So she's already a fully established character. Why not start from the beginning when she only knows water, and then her tribe is all "Oh, by the way, you're the avatar... GTFO!" And then you watch her journey and all that good stuff. The second problem is that it is a shorter series. and I hate it when they do that >.< I'm not asking for thousands of episodes, but at least 50 would be nice. Anything less than 50 always seems rushed to me.

Just because she's already learned Water, Earth, and Fire bending doesn't mean that she's fully developed nor does it mean they can't show her training or learning those bending arts in the form of flashbacks. I think rather than a repeat of the first series with the character needing to travel all over simply to train for the entire show, they actually wanted to jump right into the action with the anti-benders.

As for length, where have they actually stated it would be shorter? Because if all it says is shorter, then it could still wind up being 50 episodes. Even if it's not, the story they've provided so far I feel could be wrapped up in 26 episodes without feeling rushed most likely.

looks set to be pretty sweet IMO:D also, sure I heard somewhere that they do intend to make the series longer than intially planned.

I saw the first two episodes today and OH MY GOSH I LOOOOVE IT.

Korra is absolutely likeable and I am interested to see where they are going to take it.

Katara is an old lady, still alive and well and funny enough she wears her hair the same too..

it really tugs at my heart strings, i couldn't help but cry with happiness, and all the sentiment that Avatar : the last air bender , is known to bring.

I really am glad they have a lot of the same people that worked on Avatar: the last air bender series .. and its pretty cool to see how much civilization has progressed during the past seventy years.

I really like where Korra is going so far, i already have a new favorite quote: "I'm the avatar! Deal with it! *lights elderly man on fire*"

My last favorite quote was "Sweet fuzzy Glorp what the hell happened in here!?"
