As for the new series...of course I'll watch. But man...I wanted to find out what happened to Zuko's mother. And if Azula ever recovered and redeemed herself. Ditto the Fire Lord.
And Aang, not only grown up, but dead. That's going to be hard to take.
And a rebellious, hotheaded girl. (cue music) "I am Woman Hear Me Roar"...gahhhh!!!! Please, please, not that...
Still, I'm really into steampunk, so I'm interested in what that city will look like. And I understand that the Avatar crew might not want to try to repeat themselves. *sigh*...I'm a mix of intrigued and disappointed...

I'm really looking forward to this new series. From the description it sounds like it will be darker than the original, which isn't a bad thing as long as it's well written and entertaining. I hope it isn't just going to be dark for the sake for being dark, a la The Last Airbender. Surely Nickelodeon knows or should know by now that plenty of teenagers and adults will most likely be watching this show. Question is will they embrace that audience as well as the intended one or will they make the same mistakes as they did the origanl series and Invader Zim and limits themselves to one demographic.

As I figured, it will be resorting to drama and/or tragedy in order to make the show interesting. In that sense, that's what I meant. When I said that this series would be no different from the previous series, I was referring to the series as a whole, and not just the last season, which again, made it apparent that it was resorting to drama and tragedy (the latter especially referring to Sokka and Katara's mother) to make the show appear "realistic", and thus get the viewers interested. In the case of this new show (whatever it will be called), they're doing so by incorporating in-universe politics, and whenever politcs get involved, it stops being fun, which in this case means that the threat of tragedy becomes omnipresent, and at least IMO, that already causes the show to stop being fun to watch. Also, they only mentioned Aang's son. That doesn't mean he married Katara.However, Korra discovers that Republic City is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to rip it apart.
In any case, like I said before, NICK is really only doing this because they couldn't get the original creators to do a fourth season of A:TLB, and even if that isn't the case, all things considered, it might as well have been.
Cartoons aren't "just for kids"...but they're not just for adults either. They're for everyone.
Well, Now I know it is official, sounds like the same type of show, I meant like original Avatar, with the girl being the main character, this time around. It is for sure to be animated in the same style too!
Unless they start introducing people like Rock Lee or Naruto's other taijutsu users, benders shouldn't have anything to worry about. Or guns, I suppose, but I doubt that'll happen.
