I love it so far! I really enjoyed atla so I'm really excited for the rest of the series :> Korra annoys me sometimes but I like her character and everyone else's
I'm also a huge sucker for 20s or 30s related things too so plus points for that
and I just really love the whole equalists vs benders thing gosh
The first episode I felt was a little rushed, and the second felt too slow, but the third. I gotta say, the equalists make a great evil organization. Something about their design reminds me of early Hellboy (i.e. volumes 1-5) and I too am a sucker for anything set in the 20's/30's, unless it's a cheap romance. I'm also a sucker for characters who've suffered third degree facial burns, even though it's extremely cliche.
Loving it so far. LoK is much more "mature" than AtLA. Korra is intentionally the polar opposite of Aang as a character.
Only thing I don't like so far... is the heavily maneuvered pairing of Korra and Mako. I hope it doesn't happen, because it just feels too scripted. I don't feel any true chemistry atm beyond, "He's hot."
Looooove the world of Legend of Korra. And above all, I ADORE the music. It's so swingin'!
I think Aang + Pals had a much more expansive worldbuilding aspect to its story since the world is so foreign to us as viewers, while Korra assumes you already know aspects of the world so they spend more time on plot, less on worldbuilding.
Cool! Me personally? I love this show so far. Especially that 20's and 30's atmosphere, like shaeno stated before. And the whole thing with the Benders vs. the Equalists? I like the idea! This reminds me of the whole Jedi vs. Sith thing. Freakin' awesome. :D
Now... all we do is sit and wait on how the rest of the series go. Lol

I've only seen the first episode since it was free on itunes. I told my mom to record the rest for me, so when I come home from school I can watch them all and fast forward through commercials. I can't wait. I have two more weeks left. :D
Unless I'm misreading this thread, there seems to be confusion over there being more airbenders now... Well, Aang was the last airbender, until he and Katara had kids. I mean, they clear that up in the first episode XD
You... what are... TEN HAPPY FACES. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
And if Korra is Superman then she's going to talk to Jor Aang in the Fortress of Avatar State soon and he'll teach her how to Airbend fly and everything will be happy forever.
I need to watch the last episode sooo bad.
Oh and that chick that Mako has been with? Talia. Ras totally invented the car. No doubt.
Honestly, when you put the faces my first thought was the Face-Eater. I really think he is tied in with Amon, which is why Amon wears the mask. He said he has a connection with the spirit world, and what is the one spirit that hates the Avatar? The Face Eater.
Plus he did say that it would not be the last time he encountered the Avatar.

I was just goofing. Because he was supposed to be the last one.

That's the guy with the Lazarus pit? I'm pretty sure there's going to be something fishy involving those guys. Based upon the fact that everything is working out way to perfectly for tv.
