The Fire Lord at that time, Sozin, wiped out all of the Air Temples knowing that the next Avatar would be an airbender. 100 years had past, and the Fire Nation was winning the war. The new Avatar, Aang, was discovered in suspended animation in an iceberg by two Water Tribe siblings, Katara and Sokka. It was Aang's destiny to stop Firelord Ozai, a decedent of Sozin, from using a comet's power to end the war once and for all. To halt the advances between the Fire Nation versus the rest of the remaining nations, Aang had some help from friends in his quest to master the elements that were left: water, earth, and fire. One was Katara, a waterbender from the Southern Water Tribe was his waterbending teacher, while Sokka was her older brother. Toph was a blind earthbender who taught Aang her martial art, and Zuko, Firelord Ozai's son, originally hunted down Aang to restore his lost honor with his father, but later helped Aang bend fire.
    70 years have past, and Aang, the previous Avatar incarnation who was the last airbender has passed on. A waterbender from the Southern Water Tribe is the now the new Avatar. Her name is Korra, a girl who is rebellious, alone, and ready to take on whatever issues or battles she must face. It is Korra's destiny to protect the world as it was for her predecessors. She has three elements mastered: water, earth, and fire. The trouble is, she needs to master air while there are very few airbenders left. Tenzin, Aang and Katara's son, is the only person who can teach Korra how to airbend and it is her mission to find him or risk losing the new world's industrial melting pot, Republic City, to crime and anti-bender revolts.
    Can Korra live up to her past life and keep the world in balance?

Filled with so many twists and turns, it had me gasping for breath at the end. The beginning of the season was a bit rocky I will admit, but as it goes on the story really connects. Korra and Tenzin are the breakout characters this season. Korra having to deal with her attitude and how she treats people and Tenzin having to deal with his legacy. An extremely character focused season that I couldn't be more pleased with. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Season 2 might be the weakest season of The Legend of Korra, but it's still great fun to watch. Some of the antagonists in this season are weak characters to me. Specifically Eska and Desna, Korra's cousins. Their motivations are never really quite clear, they are emotionless (intentionally), and you are given pretty much no reason to care about them. However, this season is saved by Varrick and Bolin's secondary storyline. Varrick and Bolin are like night and day compared to Korra's cousins, both of them speak with tons of emotion, are over the top and they have clear motives.

    This season definitely has its moments, but the major conflict of the Avatar in this one isn't very interesting. The main antagonists goal doesn't make any sense and the ending doesn't technically resolve what the last few episodes were building up to. However the story of the first Avatar was nice to see. There just were not that many memorable moments in this season besides that. If you can't laugh at how messed up the relationships get in this season it'll be hard to enjoy, because it can be incredibly silly.

A lot of the actual dialog that the characters say is just really stupid, and not fitting with what the character is supposed to be like in terms of their supposed emotional intelligence, background, etc. Korra has a lot of good setting full of dumb characters.

    The season ending was a cool series of fights I guess, but pretty predictable in terms of how it unfolded, and in retrospect I think I expected more than just a fight where Korra punches a thing super hard with spirit-hulk powers and then the bad stuff goes away.

    Book 2 was crap. It started with lackluster writing and dialogue, not to mention a destruction of Korra's character to move the story forward.Book 2 was crap. It started with lackluster writing and dialogue, not to mention a destruction of Korra's character to move the story forward. When we though we could get to the mythology of the spirit world, we see nothing more than a bunch of cute animals and two giant rugs representing good and evil. All of the conflicts jump out of the way and at the end we're left with a silly pacific rim fight scene, with little personality or emotion. The generic story was so ridiculous and forgettable I forgot about it entirely while watching books 3 and 4 just to take them seriously. Literally the only thing this book was good for was bringing back the air nation. Other than that It was entirely forgettable. Expand
