It’s been nearly three years since The Legend of Korra left our TV screens, ending with Korra getting her happy ending, Asami by her side. It’s been two years since we first learned that the show’s story would continue as a comic courtesy of Dark Horse. Finally, Legend of Korra: Turf Wars Part One has arrived—and it’s…
When people talk about the current golden age of TV, they’re usually referring to big, serious dramas like Breaking Bad or The Wire. I am here today to tell you that Avatar: The Last Airbender, an animated show about a group of magical kids who ride around on a flying buffalo, deserves to be counted among them.
Turns out, Tyrion isn’t just the god of tits and wine, but also an avatar. Truly a man of many talents.
We constantly get our hopes up for upcoming movies... and then they let us down. It's easy to get sucked into the hype cycle, as people talk up their projects — but sometimes, you can tell just from the way people talk about a film that it's probably not going to work. Here are eight key phrases that usually indicate…
The Legend of Korra drew to a close last week with a series finale chock-full of drama, suspense, sacrifice, and last-ditch heroics. And then, when the dust had settled, something truly wonderful happened.
Wow. The Legend of Korra really knows how to do a finale. There is so much to talk about between Kuvira and Korra's final showdown, Team Avatar defending Republic City—and of course, that thing that happened at the very end. We're sad to see this show go, but we're delighted with the way it went out.
Technology has radically changed the world of Legend of Korra, giving its people the wonders of trains, cars, and radios. But with Kuvira moving on the Earth Empire's final holdout, we see how technology also has the potential to make warfare in the Avatar world more devastating. How can the Avatar match the…
One of the particularly great things about Legend of Korra Book 4 is the way it has managed to, ahem, balance the show's enormous cast. In this week's episode, Tenzin's kids take center stage when they journey to find Korra. And, in the meantime, we learn exactly what made Korra's former antagonists villains.
Yesterday I posted my review of the Legend of Korra video game. While it had some high points, I mostly wasn't a fan. And now, with the Korra cartoon and entire Avatar universe winding down, I can't help but worry that we might never see a video game truly do the series justice.
The Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra universe is tailor-made for a good video game. It boggles my mind that the much-loved series still hasn't gotten one.
The final season of The Legend of Korra starts streaming this Friday, summing up one of the best shows currently on television. If you haven't been watching the sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender, we have a few reasons why you should hop on this series.
This has been a bizarre year for The Legend of Korra. First, Book 3 was released with little notice; then the show was yanked off the air and made an online-only property. Now the creators have announced that Book 4: Balance will premiere on October 3rd—of this year.
Bayonetta creator Platinum is making an Avatar: The Legend of Korra action game, which is crazy exciting if you're an Avatar nut like me. But why wait to bend the elements when you can just start flinging around earth, wind, and fire (not the band) right now? Quoth Son of Nor, which is now on Steam: "Why indeed?"
The Legend of Korra dropped out of adventure mode a bit this week to focus on two of its key families: the Beifongs and the Aang clan. But while the children of Toph and Aang worked out their differences, our merry band of villains is having all the fun.
Everybody loves an amoral protagonist, or an anti-hero — but sometimes, a hero really does his or her best to be good and decent, and yet everybody always expects the worst. We love to identify with misunderstood heroes, whom everybody suspects of evilness — but here are 10 heroes who are misunderstood for good reason.
For a long time, young Sokka was the Xander Harris of Avatar: The Last Airbender. He didn't have any sweet bending powers and he wasn't the Avatar; he didn't have a great, noble destiny. He was just a dude with a boomerang. Then, he got the meteor sword.
You could make a pretty good case for Avatar: The Last Airbender being one of the best new pop culture mythologies to debut in the last decade or so. Creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko made a world where young people embodied hope, even as they were thrust into a war that tore their lives apart.…
Seriously. I guess there aren't all that many types of torture I could withstand, but bloodbending from the Avatar series is probably the most ghastly one. I'll never forget when they introduced bloodbending in Avatar: The Last Airbender. I thought "Wait… this is a kid's show? This is the most ghastly thing I've ever…
Taking his cues from Avatar: The Last Airbender and fighting games, Wren roped in his buddy and friend to make this short, "Elemental Kombat".
