Originally, only episodes 11 & 12 were slated to air this week, but in a surprise move, the Korra team released the season finale, episode 13 & 14, online at midnight on Friday. It was a night of emotions, drama and unexpected twists. Read on for my recap and final thoughts. Spoilers ahead! Continue reading “The Legend of Korra: Season Finale Recap & Thoughts”
Chapter 10 of Book 2 of The Legend of Korra aired on Friday, and it was a blend of stunning animation, adventure, nostalgic references, and heavy drama. Read on for my recap, thoughts and speculation. Spoilers ahead!
Studio Mir returned this week for a special 2-part episode of The Legend of Korra, and what a treat! The animation was gorgeous, the style was beautiful, and the story itself was fun and engaging. If you only watch two episodes this season, make it these two. My recap, thoughts and speculation are below the jump.
It’s that time of the week again! Episode 2.06 of The Legend of Korra, The Sting, aired yesterday at its new time of 8:30 pm EST. Last week, I spoke about some of my frustrations with this season so far, and I’m pleased to say that even though some of those frustrations are still there, I really enjoyed this episode. Read on for my recap, thoughts and speculation — spoilers ahead!
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.

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!
It’s that time of the week again! Episode 4 of The Legend of Korra Book Two aired today, so I’ll be providing a quick recap, thoughts and speculation after the jump! Have thoughts of your own? Feel free to leave them in the comments section at the end of the article.
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!
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.
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.
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
LOL: Everything Wrong With Avatar in 4 Minutes or Less
CinemaSins released the latest in their Everything Wrong With… series.
Some of these are a bit of a stretch if you ask me but its still funny.
