Good morning folks and i must say it feels good to be back. Up for review is the television series, The Legend of Korra. For those of you who don’t know the The Legend of Korra is a sequel to almost everybody’s favourite cartoon, Avatar: The Last Airbender brought to you by Nickelodeon (ok might not be everybody’s favourite but please try and watch the cartoon but forget about the movie as that was a total flop :p )
The Legend of Korra starts 70 years after Aang, Sokka, Toph, Katara and Zuko stopped the war that was being raged by the fire nation for over a 100 years. Together Aang and Zuko establish a city called Republic City where benders and non-benders alike could leave in peace and harmony. After Aang dies, as its the way with the Avatar process, a new avatar was now sought after only to be found in a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenage girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra. Having mastered the elements of fire, water and earth, she eagerly awaits to master the Air element from Tenzin the youngest child of Katara and Aang who’s an air bender and a council man in Republic City where Korra’s quest leads her to where she meets Police Chief Lin Beifong (daughter of Toph Beifong) who uses metal bending to keep the city safe, the brothers Mako and Bolin who are pro-benders(a sport for benders) and Tarrlok (a Northern water tribe representative in Republic City’s council) . However, Korra discovers that Republic City is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution led by a masked man known as Amon that threatens to rip it apart.
The voice casts for some of the characters are Janet Varney as Korra, J.K. Simmons as Tenzin, David Faustino as Mako, P.J. Byrne as Bolin, Steve Blum as Amon, Seychelle Gabriel as Asami Sato, Mindy Sterling as Lin Beifong, Dee Bradley Baker as Tarrlok.
The first season of the series just concluded on the 23rd of June,2012 and had 12 episodes and i must say favourite episodes where Episode 06 and the season finale of Episodes 11 and 12. Why you might be wondering? *lemme give you an inside scoop* The fight scenes in the said episodes where amazing to say the least. The legend of Korra appeals to both adults and the younger audience and its a must watch for everyone.
TV Worthiness: Please do watch and keep a copy for thyself.
