Stephanie here, making her inaugural post. You’ll have to forgive my absence for the past week or so; just popped out a baby and have been busy feeding, changing diapers, and generally walking around like a zombie.
But I digress.
Today I’m here to share my newest obsession. If you couldn’t guess judging by the title, I’m talking about The Legend of Korra. For those of you not in the know, Korra is the latest installment in the Avatar series. Not the blue-aliens-with-long-tails-Avatar. The real Avatar; the Air Bender.
The Last Air Bender was all about Aang and the return of the Avatar to the four nations. And it was pretty epic, if I do say so myself (though not the movie adaptation. That was so disappointing it hurt my heart).
The Legend of Korra, however; has nothing to do with Aang. Korra is the new Avatar, one who works closely with one of Aang’s sons. It revolves around her training to further her bending skills, fighting in competitions and dealing with a new enemy (I won’t go into details about that because I don’t want to spoil things for you.) Here she is, in all her BAMF glory.
Of course there’s plenty of humor and drama involved in the series so far, thanks in large part to these two fine gentlemen:
The Legend of Korra airs every Saturday morning at 11/10 Central on Nickelodeon. If you go to Nickelodeon’s site, you can watch clips and episodes of Korra. You can also go here to learn more about the Korra Nation.
So go! What are you waiting for?
