Avatar: The Legend of Korra
If you say so. I didn't really care about any of the interpersonal relationships in Korra. They just didn't land across the board as well as they did in the original series.

it was when the series started moving towards them as a couple I actually started to care more

didn't care for bud bundy's character

I feel like the character work in Korra was a little bit loosey goosey... Not as solid.

I agree

I keep meaning to buy the bluray series set for this. I didn't care for TLA, but I really liked this.

It's not the first time I've enjoyed a spinoff or follow up after it's source didn't take. I.E. Angel > Buffy.

I liked a lot of the secondary characters in Korra. I really like how Tenzin carries the weight of being the Avatar's son. There's that great sequence where he's lost in the spirit fog and he has to confront these feelings head on to survive.

I like the Beifong's bitter family dynamics (and that they're all badasses).

A lot of the quirky comic relief characters are lots of fun. Eska and Desna. Varrick and Zhu Li. Prince Wu has his moments. Meelo is a scene stealer. Pabu and Naga have some great scenes aswell (like the movie in season 2).

IMO the show runners keep changing their mind about the core characters from season to season. But despite that, they're always in habitant a world that feels alive and full of interesting people to bounce off.

I remember the villains being hit and miss. For example the first guy Amon who stole powers was AMAZING, and then the second season was the very lame Uncle, and then they bounced back with HENRY FUCKING ROLLINS playing like the coolest baddie ever.

Amon was a legit terrifying villain and the fact the first season ends with a murder suicide was ballsy for a fucking nickelodeon cartoon.

"Why are you the fucking Police?"

Amon was great but Zaheer is even better. Rollins just nails the ascetic nature of the guy.

Taken as a whole, the villain of Korra is zealotry. The core philosophy of the show is collective globalism threatened by extremism.

The other super bwollsy thing Korra does is take the villain turned heartthrob of the previous series, have him live to a ripe old age with adult children, but never reveal any canonical partner.

And each season features a different form of extremism:

Amon: Communist/Radical Socialist extremist.

Unalaq: Religious Extremists

Zaheer: Anarchy

Kuvira: Facism/Imperialism

Korra may not have had the villainy mainstays of the Fire Nation but I absolutely adore where they go with all the villains. And how the more philosphical natures of the collective Rogue's Gallery directly correlate to Korra and her maturation as a person with her own viewpoints.

I've said it before in this very thread. But The Last Airbender was all about Aang learning to be a better Avatar. LoK is all about Korra learning to be a better person. And that distinction in allowing its main character to go to some pretty dark places psychologically and spirtiually and come out of it stronger was so much more compelling to me than TLA, even if the previous show was more consistent in its message and entertainment.
