The area for Korra predictions, news, and discussion. For those wondering, we will be live streaming the episodes on our site as they air, and will have episodes up soon after. See our Korra FAQ on the main site for more.
As for the premier, needless to say I think we were all entertained by it. Here were some of my notes on the episode, some of which I want to bring up on the podcast should I get the chance:
Aang rocked a beard in the credits?!
Mix of old epic theme with new sounds of Korra = badass
Generation to take on the responsibilities of peace -Avatar fans growing up?
Shot of ships in harbor -Similar to shot of Admiral Zhao's ships in harbor
"Everyone living it up" in RC -What everyone thought Ba Sing Se was (city life!)
Equalists -Russian revolution in similar times?
Change of sound -Lost my heart in republic city
"Fresh off the boat" -Ellis Island -Mix of city with bending so far working well --Like people coming from the "old country" and suddenly introduced to the big city
Avatar is found earlier by White Lotus -Ensure peace is kept; Avatar doesn't go missing like Aang?
Naming of Meelo -Old rumored "ghost" from playing cards?
Characters who have passed -Sokka, Aang, Toph? --Katara appears, but says good bye to Korra ---Creators really want to start anew
Zuko's mom -Curse you Bryke for reading into the fandom!
End of ep 1 -Mix of new music with "peace excerpt" from old show
Tenzin calls his dad "Aang," not Dad?
The 4th kid, the Mom hopes is not an airbender like her -Equalists become involved at some point? Or Bryke has a heart?
Asuk heads out quick -Reappears later in disgust at others bashing his bending with their bending? Equalist?
Mako has total Zuko hair (About mid-season 2, Zuko alone particularly)
Seems a lot of people are surprised the Avatar is around -Kept hidden from the world? Gives equalists a chance to spread?
Line of the show: I will make no such promises, or, She's the Avatar!
Overall: Pilot retained the spirit of Avatar -Music was an easy transition -"Happy ending" with lessons a hallmark of the show -Animation remained top notch, if not better -Still appeals to the younger crowd's imagination, but the appeals to its now aged fans are apparent
The Sons of Sato will right all that is wrong. The will of the people will be the power of the world.
