Legend of Korra Civil Wars Part 2

The Legend of Korra - "Civil Wars, Part 2" Episode 16 Recap

by Neo Yion October 1, 2013
Korra confronts Unalaq after her parents are arrested. I’m not sure how to feel about “Civil Wars, Part 2.” Part 1 was solid, but this episode is muddled down with iffy plot points and questionable elements. I thought Unalaq’s antagonism was a given, but he had a mysterious motivation that kept him from being a […]

The Legend of Korra - "Civil Wars, Part 1" Episode 15 Recap

by Neo Yion September 24, 2013
With the Northern and Southern Tribes at each other’s necks, Korra must remain neutral in the conflict and resolve the matter before it leads to a civil war. Color me surprised. I was expecting Korra’s issues with her father to be dragged on for a few more episodes, but they resolved the whole thing almost […]

The Legend of Korra - "The Southern Lights" Episode 14 Recap

by Neo Yion September 17, 2013
Korra must journey to a remote part of the South Pole to open the portal to the spiritual world.   It’s almost weird to see the gang traveling again after season one firmly kept the entire cast in one location. Republic City was gorgeous, but I never got the feeling I was really seeing enough […]

Six months have passed since Amon’s invasion, but Avatar Korra has her work cut out for her. Spirits have invaded the physical plane and it’s up to the Avatar to restore balance once more. The Legend of Korra started off very strong and largely kept a consistently compelling story. There were only two factors that […]

by Eileen Cruzon July 30, 2012
Racebending, just in case you’re unfamiliar with the term, is the act of casting a live-action actor of a different ethnicity or race than the character he or she is portraying. The act itself has been prevalent in media for many years, though the specific instance that gave life to the term was the live-action movie of Avatar: […]

The Legend of Korra - "Skeletons in the Closet/Endgame" Episodes 11 & 12 Recap

by Ed Liuon July 1, 2012
I have to admit that after the 10-episode thrill ride that has been The Legend of Korra thus far, I was a little let down by the two-part season finale. The sound of plot hammers ring much more loudly than in the episodes before it, and there are far too many amazing coincidences, plot cheats, […]
