I'll say it upfront, I've watched a couple of episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender, I never got into it, not that it was a bad show, my brother was a fan of the show. ; I was just focusing my attention on other tv shows at the time; after watching "Welcome to Republic City"- Oh boy did I miss out. I really liked Korra here- the writers created a great heroine, a great switch up for an action show. Like I said, I know about the setting of ATLA, but boy did the world change. They had blimps, microphones, radios, and even cars! I was a bit suprised.
Aang's death effect on the residents of the Republic City was well handled. The police were particularly hostile.
But Jesus, Amon, that was just total BA. Steve Blum voicing him is just icing on the cake. His character is interesting from the get-go. I also really like his design.
ATLA is on Netflix currently, but this show makes me want to watch the original series, and Legend of Korra at the same time.
I really liked this episode.
Being on Korra!
