Overall, I enjoyed the first two episodes.

Spoiler: Really like all of the new characters. Toph's daughter is going to be hilarious, and just as rebellious. And I'm guessing Mako is the new Zuko, Bolin is the new Sokka? The Equalists seem like they're going to be badass, and I also enjoyed the metal-bending police. Nice episodes to start off the show.

I probably won't watch it until about 10 episodes in, because that's how I watch tv shows.

Really looking forward to this. Loved Avatar

Spoiler: The Mako character has a lot of Zuko resemblance, im gonna go out on limb and say that he is connected to Zuko as a son/grandson/nephew whatever.

They hinted at telling what happened with Zuko's mother so im sure we are gonna find out soon, I think it will be Mako who show's his back-story that has connection with Zuko.

Also the equalist seem bad ass. I wonder if it's someone important behind the mask in relation to the Avatar or just a villain who is hell bent.

I also cant wait to see Korra connect with the Spirit's so we can see Anng again.

It suck's that Sokka is gone along with Zuko but im sure we get a close look at them with Bolin and Mako

Did you know that Toza (the guy who Korra found when she first entered the pro-bending arena. The one who confronted her before Bolin could save her) actually found Mako practicing his bending outside and homeless. He then invited them in. So maybe they could develop that idea further. All I hope is that the Equalists will be a very hard challenge.

Really pumped for this show. Saw the first 2 episodes last night and I thought they were great.

How do you know that? Did I miss a scene?

Spoiler:I dig it. It seems to me like it's going to be more a traditional anime archetype now, whereas the fist was unique in it's growth. The original Avatar is possibly the best at what it did as far as character development, and this one won't match it since it's shorter.

The metal police are awesome, pro-bending is awesome, the characters aren't as interesting this time around thus far but it's early, and there are many threads they show in the first two episodes that could make this great, if they decide to follow them. The Equalists will make or break this saga I think. A great villain, and a great conflict will automatically make this a memorable sequel because the visual style is so amazing.

I like the little wink to everyone at the beginning when the girl asks Katara about Zuko's mom. I wonder if they'll ever show that hand, or if in fact they still are leaving the possibility open for another show all about Firelord Zuko trying to find her.

Spoiler:

@Kobe681, It wasn't in the episodes. I've just been following this series for a while and came across a little snipbit on Toza, and that's what it said.

@TimmyD, yep. The Equalists are amazing, and if they further develop the fact how dangerous they are, then this series will be awesome.

I really like the evolution of the fighting styles too. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. It leads me to believe that I know what the physical threat in this show will be. Time will tell.

Potential Rumor Spoiler about the Equalist leader: He's actually the son of Azula and instead of wanting "equality," he wants to wipe out bending completely (maybe he was crushed by not being born w/ bending powers?). BTW, they are supposed to have an army later on that uses the bend-blocking skills that Ty Lee used in Avatar. We shall see how this unfolds, but I am INTRIGUED!

Also, I'm glad they didn't try to do an Avatar-lite. This definitely feels like something completely new but with some fanservice added in here and there

This is the way I look at, Republic City is the conglomeration of their world's cultures and with that comes a lot more free and open thought (at least in its initial design), so it's the most likely to be the epicenter for the world's technological advancement. Whereas the Southern Water Tribe village is going to be slightly behind the trend being more on the outskirts and still being primarily a settlement of one people. Although remember how the village looked in the opening episodes of the Last Airbender, it's advanced by leaps and bounds.
