First Nickelodeon brought us the incredible animated fantasy series Avatar: The Last Airbender, which followed the adventures of a young boy named Aang who is destined for the great responsibility of saving the world from a war that could tear it asunder. After three seasons, this story drew to a close but a new chapter was born with the spin-off The Legend of Korra. This series, which has just entered its second season, centers on Aang's next incarnation, a spirited and stubborn girl named Korra. In season one, Korra traveled from her home in the Southern Water tribe to the glorious Republic City, where she faced off against tricky city politicians and a faceless terrorist called Amon. With season two came bigger moral dilemmas for this young Avatar. She traveled back home and had to choose sides in a Civil War begun by her father and Uncle. She's also been »
Currently, actor Raphael Sbarge is playing the character of psychiatrist Archie Hopper (a.k.a. Pinocchio’s conscience Jiminy Cricket) on the modern-day fairy tale show, Once Upon A Time, in which fairy tale characters have been transported to the “real world” town of Storybrooke, Maine, and robbed of their real memories by a powerful curse. It’s a lot of fun!
If you somehow haven’t encountered Once Upon A Time and Sbarge’s character there, however, you may also remember him as one of the main characters on The Guardian, Jake Straka. And if you’ve missed both of those shows, I can pretty much guarantee you’ve seen him in something. Why? Because Sbarge is one of those great TV actors who shows up in pretty much every show I’ve (or anyone’s) ever watched. From Prison Break to Quantum Leap, and Avatar: The Last Airbender to Murder She Wrote, »

Review Kaci Ferrell 15 Sep 2013 - 11:00
Kaci feels disappointed by The Legend Of Korra's long-awaited second season premiere. Here's here review of Rebel Spirit...
This review contains spoilers.
2.1 Rebel Spirit
It's hard not to compare this episode to the pilot of season one: both were hour-long premieres tasked with the admittedly difficult job of introducing us to new worlds and concepts while also being an entertaining piece of television. Overall, I think the pilot succeeded in that. This episode, on the other hand, mostly fell flat for me. Which is not to say there weren't a lot of great things being put into motion; the episode succeeded at the former of its two jobs... it just wasn't overly entertaining while it was at it.
Rebel Spirit sets up what appears to be the central conflict this season: the Southern Water Tribe's lax spirituality versus the more orthodox Northern Tribe. »
The Legend of Korra exists as one of those rare moments in television where children and adults alike can enjoy an animated program without feeling apologetic for appreciating the series. With the premiere of season 2 (a.k.a. Book 2: Spirits), creators Michael Dante Dimartino and Bryan Konietzko continue that tradition with the show’s heroine experiencing more growing pains on her journey to becoming not only a better Avatar, but a woman.
If the season 1 finale left its viewers with any questions, one of those had to be who the major villain was going to be in the following season? In Avatar: The Last Airbender, Aang’s nemesis was clear, and so was his mission. The journey may not have ...

After their successful series Avatar: The Last Airbender, which ran from 2005 to 2008 and earned Nickelodeon Emmys, Annies, a Peabody, and consistently high ratings, creators Michael Dante Dimartino and Bryan Konietzko had options. But storytelling freedom lured them back to the world of Avatar. In 2012, the duo debuted Book One (that's what we call “seasons” in the Avatar world) of Legend of Korra. The series twisted the mythology, following a female Avatar, an individual with the power to bend all elements, struggling with the drama of being 17 while defending a fantastical variation of New York circa 1920. With action, romance, and a few tearjerking moments, Book One amounted to some of the most dramatic television of the year. Hayao Miyazaki may be retiring, but Dimartino and Konietzko aren't letting compelling, 2-D animation slip away just yet. This Friday sees the debut of the second wave of Korra »

Tony Perkins Vs. Betty Crocker.
Two-time Olympic gold-medal winner Seth Wescott has spoken out about Russia and The Olympics, and his fear for his gay snowboarding friends: “They’re wonderful human beings, and I think for them to be discriminated against is a crime,” he said. “They should be able to be who they are and compete proudly. They represent our country incredibly well and they don’t need to be the object of that kind of criticism and negativity.”

We’re just a few short weeks away from the premiere of The Legend of Korra Book 2. And, I can’t express how excited I am to see my second favorite Avatar return to TV – sorry Korra, but I’ve just known Aang a lot longer.
This is something of an emotional moment for me. It’s been over a year since the last season aired. Unlike Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra was slated to be a mini-series only. So the season finale wrapped itself up in a nice-and-tidy package.
Korra is a great character, and starkly different from Aang. She’s the Katniss Everdeen of the cartoon world; she has a fierce spirit and takes risks in a way Aang never did. »

Avatar: The Last Airbender spin-off The Legend of Korra will launch its second 'book' (read: season) on Nickelodeon on September 13th. To prepare viewers for the fantasy series' return, its creators have launched a web companion to add extra flavor to their world. The three-part Republic City Hustle provides a back story for two main characters and features a unique, blocky animation style. Republic City Hustle follows brothers Mako and Bolin, each of whom possess the ability to "bend" elements (the central plot device of both Avatar and Korra). Before the brothers befriended Korra, they lived together as orphans on the streets of the show's capital, Republic City, where they did whatever they could to scrape by. In the first episode, Mako and Bolin team up to con a little old lady, with a short bending battle thrown in for good measure. "This short was written by Korra writer Tim Hedrick »

As the sequel series to the incredibly popular Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra was perhaps the most highly-anticipated animated show of the past few years. Though it was initially envisioned as merely a miniseries, the series order has since been expanded to four seasons and 52 episodes.
Season 2 – a.k.a. “Book Two: Spirits” – is fast approaching, and now we know the precise premiere date: September 13th, 2013. Plus, there’s a new trailer for season 2 (above) that depicts the more fun elements of The Legend of Korra than the previously released Comic-Con trailer.
Courtesy of Yahoo! TV, the footage seems to suggest that the main conflict of “Book Two: Spirits” will have to do with the Spirit World – which seems to be infringing upon the Earthly realm – and ...

Well, actually, he’s a lot of animals. From Perry the Platypus on Phineas and Ferb to Appa and Momo on Avatar: The Last Airbender, voice actor Dee Bradley Baker is the man behind a whole slew of animal and creature sounds you might not even guess could come from a human being. Of course, he also voices awesome speaking characters, such as all of the clones on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Klaus the German fish on American Dad! And then there are all of those video games he’s provided voices or sounds for, like the Halo series, Portal 2, Gears of War 1 – 3, Diablo III, Left 4 Dead 2, the Ben 10 video games, and several Marvel and DC games, including Batman: Arkham City. In fact, if you look over his ridiculously long IMDb page (329 titles!) I think you’ll find that even if you are not a heavy consumer of entertainment, »

‘Avatar 2′ and follow-up sequels’ release dates revealed (image: Na’vi Sam Worthington in ‘Avatar’) Avatar, James Cameron’s late 2009 (and early 2010) blockbuster that spearheaded the (currently dwindling) popularity of 3D movies, will have three sequels. Why exactly that has come as a surprise revelation for some is unclear. Sigourney Weaver, who for quite a while has been scheduled to return for the Avatar sequels, had already mentioned that there would be three movies, filmed concurrently much like Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Anyhow, James Cameron and Avatar distributor 20th Century Fox have announced that the three sequels will be released as follows: Avatar 2 (not to be confused with Avatar: The Last Airbender or Avatar: The Legend of Korra or online thumbnail avatars) will reach theaters in December 2016, a full seven years after the original. The second sequel (or third Avatar »

Now that it has 1,200 hours of original programming to produce for distributors like Netflix and Super Rtl over the next five years, DreamWorks Animation has tapped veteran Nickelodeon executive Marjorie Cohn to run its new television division.
The New York native has spent the past 26 years at Nickelodeon in various development and production roles. While there, she helped make Nickelodeon the No. 1 cable channel for 18 consecutive years. She’s leaving the company as president, content development where she oversaw both animated and live action series including “SpongeBob Squarepants,” “Rugrats,” “iCarly,” “The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius,” “The Fairly OddParents” and the “Kids’ Choice Awards.”
She will now ramp up production of DreamWorks Animation’s TV series — a significant area of growth for the toon studio. Dwa-chief Jeffrey Katzenberg sees TV as both a significant revenue stream as well as a key way to grow the appeal of its brands »

The BFI have been working hard on their Masters of Cinema collection, a British equivalent to the Criterion Collection. This is their fifth and final introduction into the John Cassavetes collection which includes Shadows, Faces, A Woman Under the Influence and Opening Night. The story of Cosmo Vitelli (Ben Gazzara – mesmerising), a small strip-club owner who gets in too deep with some murky characters because of his consuming gambling addiction which leaves him $23,000 in the red. The mob then use this as a handle to blackmail him into murdering someone to wipe off some of his debt. It goes behind the scenes of a seemingly successful man »

As popular as Avatar: The Last Airbender was with kids, teens, and 20-somethings (who'll we'll just say are still kids at heart, I guess), it still suffered from rough animation, cheesy voice acting, and was modeled after the popular Japanese cartoon model of a group of youngsters with fantastical abilities going on a long journey. It was above average cartoon fare, but just barely. As of last year, however, easily the best thing about Avatar: The Last Airbender, and the world it created is that it gave us The Legend of Korra. The Legend of Korra improves on virtually every aspect of The Last Airbender with better animation, a tremendous voice cast, more mature themes, and a story focused on the long-term with a surprising dark and somber streak to it. Simply put, The Legend of Korra is one of the best "kids" cartoons to come out of this generation. »

If your knowledge of Nickelodeon cartoons ends at Rugrats or SpongeBob, you're denying yourself the pleasure of experiencing the best action filmmaking currently on television. Last year, Michael Dante Dimartino and Bryan Konietzko unleashed The Legend of Korra, a sequel series to their hit show Avatar: The Last Airbender. Both shows are set in a world where half the population can manipulate the elements (fire, air, water, earth), with a single person, the Avatar, capable of "bending" the full spectrum. The Last Airbender melded Eastern influences with Tolkien lore, and with Korra, Dimartino and Konietzko jumped ahead 70 years to see what it would all look like amidst an industrial revolution. Following the new Avatar, a 17-year-old named Korra, the first season explores themes of class discrimination and totalitarianism through detailed art, fluid camerawork, and genuine-sounding dialogue. With most big-screen animation focused on the lives of anthropomorphic animals, Korra reminds »
