Watched the first two episodes yesterday, and enjoyed them. The production values are fantastic, and the animation is yet again a nice blend of anime and Western styles. Action sequences were solid and fun -- loved the sequence when Korra took on the gangters -- and I appreciated the thought and details put into the world of the series (like the metal wires that the metalbender cops used to chase after Korra).
I am curious as to how the series will treat the more spiritual aspects of bending. Right now, it clearly seems focused on the awesome, kick-ass aspects of bending, which is understandable. I hope -- and have faith -- that Tenzin is used, not just as some fuddy-duddy buzzkill for Korra's adventures, but as an actual wise, mentor-like individual. I also hope that the series doesn't just stay in Republic City, as interesting as that setting could certainly be. I want to know how the rest of the kingdoms have developed and changed in the last 70 years since the previous series.
All that being said, I think the series is very promising, and I hope they continue to offer episodes online (since I don't have cable TV).
And I wonder, will we ever get a satisfactory answer regarding the fate of Zuko's mom?
