Well; that was rather good, wasn't it?

Splendid art, voice acting and a compelling narrative on par with any live-action, prime-time series.

The resolution at the end, though, felt a little rushed. While I'm glad there was one, it had an air of finality about it, as though it's uncertain a second season will ever transpire.
If there isn't one; it'll be a crime, given all the work that went into crafting Korra's world.

(Spoiler)I finally finished the season, because I could finally get around to doing so. I agree with you that the ending was rushed. It just felt too quick. You know? or like different aspects of the end was out of place. Like the all the avatars appearing, or Amon's death. either way. I think we can all agree we would be sorely disappointed if another season did not occur. Hopefully we'll get an answer to Zukko's mother, and maybe this time they'll travel the world like aang did. Ok. That's all. Thank you.(Spoiler)

I agree with everything you said. The rushed ending is a product of Nick originally ordering only one season and then shortly after the success of the first few episodes, they ordered two more.

So unfortunately, they had to fit what should have been two chapters into one chapter because the creators didn't know if there would be a second chapter. Hardly a fault against them.

In my opinion, Nick kind of did that series a disservice by doing it that way. It took what was a really great narrative and forced the authors to condense it. So, what should have been "great" is simply just "good." But that's OK! Because it was still far and away the best piece of animation I've seen since the end of the old series.

Huh, I feel a bit behind... What is this "Legend of Korra"?

I had read in an interview that the creators had plans for 2 more books...but it's all up to what get's greenlit and what doesn't :)
I did enjoy it, but I agree on it's pacing being a little weird at times (like they wanted to fit a lot more in...knowing that the season was only going to be the number of episodes it was). Not sure how to feel about the lovebirds though. Also...I love Dante...but the voice didn't go with new Iroh at all IMO hahah Will (hopefully) have to see more of his character :) Lin was probably my favorite character so far :D

Yeah it did feel a slight bit rushed but still stunning; the bit with Noatak and Tarlok near the mouth just dropped it was so perfect; music, animation timing, everything. The only thing I didn't like was that airbender kid....Melo(?), because he was just childish comedy with no other reason for being; I slapped my head at the airbender farts bit. Bolin is a much funnier and relateable comedic character.

Second season is a must.

Aye, it did feel a bit rushed, but if the second season ever does come around, I'm betting that the Equalists will still be a threat, albeit a lesser one without Amon/Noatak and the war machines of Hiroshi. The issues are still there, and Amon was indeed a bender manipulating non-benders into a revolution. Just drives the point home that, in their minds, all benders are a threat to non-benders.

Though who shall lead them now?

The Lieutenant?

Hiroshi Sato?

Some new face?

Who knows.

Of course, there could be a whole other threat as well. An antagonistic bending faction, maybe. A bunch of bending citizens who've joined up to oppose the Equalists with good ol' vigilante justice.

But I'm probably looking too much into it. I tend to do that.

Anyway, if there is a second season, I'm looking forward to it. If not.. Damn... I made myself sad...

I know what you mean. It was great that they resolved the story, but it did feel incredibly rushed at the end. One of my favorite part of the story was the huge gap between the last two episodes on how they captured Tenzen and his family?

The action was kick ass all the way through. It was kinda cool too see a grown up Ang, thought I hated his beard. Toph's daughter kicks ass.

Here's hoping they make a 2nd season. THough, now that they got rid of their main antagonist, I can only imagine who will be next? I hope we get too see Lance Henriksen character again.

I agree!

Yep, it was a little rushed, they weren't sure of the success. So, they finished it off. It wasn't until they saw the success of the show that they were able to confirm a second season. There are still a lot of questions to be answered... Especially; what of the Amon supporters? Nothing is back to normal, Republic City is in shambles.

I'm really hoping now that Korra has touched the spirit world that there'll be a season dedicated to it. Maybe No-Face going on a face-eating bender, be cool to see her fight that....thing.
