Liked the dig about Zukos mom. I lol'ed. The world is going to have to get some getting used to. I liked the old world country aspect a lot. Seeing cars and high rise buildings is a bit off to me but I'm sure I'll get used to it. Like Timmy said, can't wait till Korra goes into the Spirit World so we can see Aang.
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.
I think they already have enough connections in the main cast from the Last Airbender with Tenzin and Lin Beifong. Having Bolin and Mako (who are brothers) being related to Zuko or any other characters having relation to the past characters would just overwhelm this story a little too much. Plus it's obvious that Aang is going to hang over this series pretty heavily both with Korra and Tenzin. So there will plenty of influence from the Last Airbender here.
Also, they probably aren't going to do anything with story revolving around Zuko's mother in this series, as it's being covered in the Dark Horse comic. And that's a good thing. Using this series to tie up the loose ends of the last series makes it harder to stand on its own, which was one of the primary themes of the very first episode.
Why does Aang's grandson look like he has down syndrome?
Series looks like it could be pretty good. I wish it could be long enough to develop the characters like the did in the original. Zuko was one of my favorite characters ever.
I enjoyed the first 2 episodes, though, I can't wait to see some of korra's battles with the equalists. My favorite part of the original series was Aang's battles with Azula and her gang /fire lord sozun
I remember in the book one DVD's they said that they planned to use a lot of 3 dimensional animation in the original Avatar, but eventually decided that a little goes a long way.
I guess in this series they're gonna go the other way with it? Already more 3D sets than I'm used to seeing, however it fits okay and the pure animation style... bananas. That studio is no joke... although I must agree Aang's grandson looks really weird.
Yeah, 26 with the option from nick to extend the series. Depending on how good it does, i hope they extend it.
I don't know, I kind of like the idea of the creators only going 26 episodes and telling a complete story in that span. If they have a full outline of what they want to tell (which it seems that they do), then 26 episodes seems like it should be enough and it would do away with a lot of the filler episodes that the first series had (think the Great Divide of the Painted Lady).
After watching the first 2 episodes a second time I noticed something:
It's China is it not? More specifically Hong Kong. Now I know it isn't exactly, and that it takes place in an alternate timeline but in the first two episodes it seems clear to me that Republic City is modeled to mirror that of Hong Kong as it opened up to the west.
The currency is Yuan, the architecture is a hybrid of Eastern and Western, and the music and set up reminds me a lot of many period pieces that I've seen taking place in that era and setting.
This is interesting because in TLAB each nation represented a different type of civilization. You had nomads (airbenders), militaristic (Fire Nation), rigid hierarchy (Earth Kingdom), village life (Southern Water Tribe), and loose hierarchy (Northern Water Tribe).
It seems like in this one you still have fringe people like the village Korra comes from, but Republic City at least seems to be a direct allegory to a specific place. We may even see an allegory play out that mirrors the xenophobic movement depending on how the anti-bending plays out.
