    Avatar: the Last Airbender was an animated television show that aired on Nickelodeon from 2005-2008

    it is considered by many people including myself to be one of the greatest shows ever created.
    so much great fight scenes, so much great world-building/mythos

    I love this show so much, as well as Legend of Korra.

    You should! It got much better after the first season. The last two are basically perfect.

    Book 2: Spirits was actually my least favorite.

    I enjoyed the 1st season, especially the end with the murder suicide on a kid's programming network.

    lmao, yeah, i didn't think they were gonna go there :crylaugh:
    but still, the whole first season was just filled with so many things they could've done better. it's all i can think about when i watch it; story wise, it's just mismanaged, a result of Bryke (bryan+mike) not knowing if they were going to get more than one season.

    I wish that Korra had a story that linked all 4 seasons. That's what made the first iteration of the series so compelling.

    It really killed me when Korra lost all her past lives.

    i thought season 2 of korra was probably worse than season 1.

    Every now and then I like to watch this little documentary on The Last Airbender.

    I love how any Airbender thread I go to on anysite just devolves into a LOK season debate and outrage

    Is it worth watching the last two seasons of Korra

    the first two were absolutely horrendous

    Hello, my eyes teared up at the very sight of this thread. My favorite animated series of all team, beating out the X-Men animated series from the 90s.

    I don't even want to talk about LOK (which had equally great and terrible moments) because TLA was so god damn wonderful and emotional and has had such a profound effect on me. It's my #1 pick for TV show that I would take with me on a deserted island (even over Parks!!!) This took the place between the Scooby Gang on Buffy and the Wolf Pack on Teen Wolf, with Sokka fulfilling the Xander/Stiles role for me.

    My most favorite, only rivaled by Katara.

    Anyone reading the graphic novels?

    I read The Search and The Promise. Both were good reads. In The Promise you learn what happened to Zuko's mom.

    Yes, the last two were the best of the series.

    disagree that the first two were horrendous as well, but w/e lol

    I mean.. they weren't the best. But horrendous?

    I wouldn't say horrendous. I just wanted Korra to stop being an absolute terrible brat. The villian of Season 1 was terrifying and well worth it alone.

    season one started off super strong and kinda petered off because it avoided too much of what it introduced in the beginning morally/ethically, season two was kinda whack because it was all over the place but worth it for the avatar origin story, and then s3/4 were just flat out fantastic front to back imo

    s1 and 2 lacked any sort of depth-- talking about the characters, the plot, the exploration of the themes, etc

    I found ATLA to be a 10/10 show and the first two seasons of LoK were like 6/10 for me. so not HORRENDOUS, but just rly bad compared to the original
