New Avatar, New Metropolis
15 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The wait is finally over! Korra, from the Southern Water Tribe is the new Avatar and is ready to take on the world! Set in Republic City, sort of a 1920s New York City type place with Asian culture/influence, Korra discovers the world is not what she thought it was and wants to help ease tensions between Benders and Non-Benders.

Tenzin, the son and Air-Bender of Aang is introduced as a serious, but kind man along with his pregnant wife and three children, who provide us with some well-needed laughs in this more serious version of Avatar.

Korra gets herself into trouble and resists arrest, showing her naivety, but we get to see Lin Bei Fong, the daughter of Toph as a result.

The modern city with automobiles was a turnoff for me as it was to others I know, but after watching a few episodes, I've learned to accept this new environment even though it lacks in the mysticism that made the original Avatar so great.

Overall, I score this episode a 6/10. It didn't "wow" me like I hoped and the humor was lacking, but the artistry is terrific and the story-telling is adequate. Rock-on, Korra, Rock-on!
