The Legend Of Korra - "Kuvira's Gambit" - Episode 50 Recap

KuvirasGambit4

There is something inherently silly about a giant mecha suit towering over the city, but it’s a clever, unexpected way to house the super weapon. It’s also another demonstration of changing times. When Aang was still young, you could make an arguable case that Benders had martial prowess and clear physical advantages over Non-Benders. Korra Book […]

The Legend of Korra - "Remembrances" - Episode 47 Recap

Remembrances3

Korra, Mako, and Varrick reminisce past events. Avatar: The Last Airbender infamously crafted an exuberant take on the clip show format with season three’s “The Ember Island Players.” Instead of talking heads gabbing about events that occurred previously while the episode shuffled through randomly selected clips, “The Ember Island Players” had Aang’s team watching a […]

The Legend of Korra - "Reunion" - Episode 46 Recap

Reunion1

Korra’s reunion with Asami and Mako are cut short when Prince Wu is kidnapped. Meanwhile Bolin and Varrick are confronted by a group of former Earth Empire prisoners. Like last episode’s “The Battle of Zaofu”, “Reunion” dithers around with decent progress but also a heavy feeling of drudging familiarity. Korra returns to Republic City and […]

The Legend of Korra - "The Battle of Zaofu" - Episode 45 Recap

TheBattleofZaofu1

Suyin and her sons are captured by Kuvira during an attempted assassination, so it’s up to Korra to duel Kuvira one-on-one for Zaofu’s fate. Meanwhile Bolin and Varrick try to escape Baater Jr and his men. “The Battle of Zaofu” is sluggishly paced, but there’s a lot to like about it, too. Korra’s been out […]

The Legend of Korra - "Enemy At The Gates" - Episode 44 Recap

EnemyAtTheGates3

Korra returns to Zaofu to help Suyin against Kuvira’s army. Meanwhile Bolin and Varrick realize they’re on the wrong side, so they make an attempt to escape. Some people do not suffer fools greatly. Varrick and Zhu Li work as a comical duo because of their contrasting differences: Varrick’s over-the-top mad genius archetype is balanced […]

NYCC 2014: Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino on "The Legend of Korra"

LegendOfKorraBook4Splash

By now, the team of Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko needs no introduction (but in case you needed one, our earlier interviews with the either or both at New York Comic Con 2008, right before the premiere of The Legend of Korra, and last year’s New York Comic Con might be good places to […]

The Legend of Korra - "The Calling" - Episode 43 Recap

TheCalling3

Tenzin tasks his children to find Korra to save the Earth Kingdom. Being the middle child blows: they often lack the responsibility and maturity that typically comes with being the firstborn, and they don’t get the cuddling and attention the youngest gets. As the eldest of Tenzin’s children, Jinora snagged a portion of the spotlight […]

The Legend of Korra - "The Coronation" - Episode 42 Recap

TheCoronation2

Korra begs Toph to help her regain her strength. Meanwhile Mako has to content with the spoiled Prince Wu, while Kuvira vows to rule the Earth Kingdom on her own terms. Toph is back and all is right in the world. Korra asks the “Greatest Earthbender in the world” to train her so that she […]

The Legend of Korra - "Korra Alone" - Episode 41 Recap

KorraAlone3

Korra struggles with her inner demon. “Korra Alone.” I see what you did there. A lot of cartoons (usually) rifled in continuity and ongoing narratives develop the heroes by setting up obstacles for them to bypass. Once they conquer their flaws and situations, they come off wiser and better for the experience. Any further roadblocks […]

The Legend of Korra - "After All These Years" Episode 40 Recap

AfterAllTheseYears2

Three years have passed since Korra defeated the Red Lotus.  Last time on The Legend of Korra, Korra stopped Zaheer and the Red Lotus from unleashing total anarchy. Unfortunately the Earth Kingdom got the full brunt of Zaheer’s philosophy when he killed the Queen and delivered Ba Sing Se to the people. He nearly ended […]
