Something For The Weekend: Avatar: The Last Airbender

AvatarTheLastAirbender

Have you been enjoying The Legend of Korra? How about Heather’s recaps? If you said yes to either of these then maybe you should check out the series that started it all!

Avatar: The Last Airbender is a kids show but it also features a story of epic scope with many adult themes. It’s the story of a hero dealing with a world he has been absent from, a mantle he hasn’t fully inherited, and a villain bent on dominating all corners of the world.

There are three seasons with 20, 20 and 21 half hour episodes each, and it’s entirely worth your time. All three seasons are available on iTunes and Amazon via the links below. Full disclosure: these are affiliate links so if you use them we’ll get a commission on the sale. Please do that though as we like doing this and every little bit helps us do that.

The Legend of Korra: Episode 2.05 Recap, Thoughts & Speculation

Television / 8 Comments

s02e05_title card

Episode 2.05 aired last night, so here’s my weekly recap, thoughts and speculation.  I’m going to start out by saying that this one was difficult to write. I want to love this season, I really really do. I also prefer to focus on the positive, because there’s so much criticism and cynicism on the Internet already, and I’m grateful that we’re getting more seasons in the universe I adore. This episode, however, clinched a few things that have been bothering me about this season so far, and this week’s Thoughts section is going to discuss those.

First, though, let’s do the episode recap. Spoilers ahead!

The Legend of Korra: Episode 2.03 Recap

lok s02e03 title

The third episode of Book Two of The Legend of Korra aired last night, so it’s time for another recap. I’ll start by saying I enjoyed this episode much more than the premier, though it’s hard to say if that was due to a leap in quality, or because I watched M. Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender directly before I watched this episode. (That movie has the power to make absolutely anything seem amazing by comparison.) Overwhelming evidence points to an actual leap in quality. Recap, thoughts, and speculation after the jump. As always, beware of spoilers!

Legend of Korra: Book 1 Review / Book 2 Discussion

Posted by Heather on September 07, 2013
Television / Comments Off on Legend of Korra: Book 1 Review / Book 2 Discussion

In April 2012, Nickelodeon released a sequel to the hit children’s cartoon Avatar: the Last Airbender. The Legend of Korra, originally a twelve-episode mini-series, was such a huge success that it was quickly renewed for three more seasons, with Book Two: Spirits starting up on Friday, September 13th.

If you haven’t seen Book One: Air yet, you’re missing out on a fast-paced, action-packed story with stunning art, gorgeous music, and some of the best animation on TV. The fight choreography alone makes it a worthwhile watch. Don’t worry if you never watched Avatar — the show does a good job of recapping the important plot points so first-time viewers can follow along.

As Book Two airs, I’ll be providing weekly episode recaps and theories here on Awesome Friday! To kick it all off, here is a Book One recap, along with some discussion and speculation about Book Two.

Awesome Daily – 26th Jan 2013

Posted by Simon on January 26, 2013
News / 1 Comment

Hello! Welcome to the first Awesome Daily.

So many little things happen during the day that Matt and I want to share, but often they’re little snippets or redirects and not really suitable for a full-blown article. We’ve started putting them on our Facebook page (LIIIKE USSSSS sorry) but want to make them available to everyone. So, we’re going to try and make a single daily post of all the little bits and bobs we think are cool from the day. It could be the announcement of a new film from our favourite director, a quick iPhone recommendation or just a reaction to something we’ve heard – a quick and easily digestible slice of the day’s cool news. Let us know what you think.

Ready Steady Bang, Free game for iOS

So, let’s get started with my new favourite thing – Ready Steady Bang on iOS. It’s a free single press quickdraw game that is all about fast reactions. The single, multi and online player modes, combined with a deliciously simple graphic style, has already made this essential. Grab your gun and start taking down those pesky outlaws.

JJ Abrams Confirmed to Direct Star Wars Episode VII

It’s official folks. Press Release from StarWars.com

After a bevy of emails and phone calls, the formalities have been wrapped up, and at long last everyone can exhale and properly share the word with an excited Internet. Yes, J.J. Abrams will direct Star Wars: Episode VII, the first of a new series of Star Wars films to come from Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy. Abrams will be directing and Academy Award-winning writer Michael Arndt will write the screenplay.

“It’s very exciting to have J.J. aboard leading the charge as we set off to make a new Star Wars movie,” said Kennedy. “J.J. is the perfect director to helm this. Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise. He understands the essence of the Star Wars experience, and will bring that talent to create an unforgettable motion picture.”

George Lucas went on to say “I’ve consistently been impressed with J.J. as a filmmaker and storyteller.” He’s an ideal choice to direct the new Star Wars film and the legacy couldn’t be in better hands.”

To me this is good news. I’ve found his films good but, uh, safe. What I will say is that while I like what he and his team with with Star Trek, the storytelling style is likely much better suited to Star Wars which is more Science Fantasy that Science Fiction. Not that it really matters, you know I’m going to be there on opening day. – Matt
