Has anyone read "The Promise" trilogy? I've been debating over whether or not I should buy them. I'm wondering if they're worthwhile or just a cash grab (yes, Star Wars has made me that paranoid).

Everything is a cash grab, but that doesn't also mean it's not worth the cash. I haven't heard anything bad about the comics and I would like to read them myself. I say go for it, why not?

I read the first two. They were decent, but I wouldn't buy them, personally. I did buy "The Lost Adventures" and really enjoyed it.

^ I'm leaning towards not buying them.

It's about time! I'd sort forgotten about the show, it's been so long.

I'm rewatching The Legend of Korra now with my sister. I randomly saw it at Wal-Mart; I wasn't even aware it was on DVD. I'm enjoying it more the second time. It was hard to get used to the different tone, setting etc. and I was missing the old characters too much the first time. Now I'm appreciating how different it is (while retaining the same awesome essence), because it isn't just a repeat of the first series like so many sequels are.

Here's a pretty good series overview and news of Korra

http://www.denofgeek.us/tv/legend-of-korra/189398/legend-of-korra-the-legend-so-far?

The big news is that, according to that site, Korra will be four seasons.

The other big news is that next season will focus on the Spirit side and we'll see the origin of the Avatar... something that I don't know how I feel about. I think spelling everything out that way could be a mistake, but the past mythology is one one the best aspects of the show, so we'll see.

I wouldn't say Korra has mastered the Avatar state. She can access it when she wants without a problem, but she doesn't understand what it is for, she thinks it's just a "power up". That is a lot to what this episode and season are about.

I had forgotten that Aubrey Plaza was going to be on the show and didn't expect to hear her in the first episode, so that was a treat. I was also happy to see Asami stick around since her character could have easily been written off.

I won't comment specifically about the second episode, but It felt kind of anticlimatic. That brought back the whole problem I had with season one, but other than that it was a very good starter.

It was cool that the show finally gave some information about "genetic" bending, which is that it is not purely tied to a location but that it has some "essence" in the person. In other words we knew that benders could have non bender children and vice versa, but now we know that two different bender parents can have offspring with either of their parents bending abilities.

PS. I guess that was in the first season, but I never thought about it until now.

Kind of like Force abilities. I think I always just assumed that bending was genetic.

I missed the new episodes and can't find them online. Evil or Very Mad

@Padme: Try this site:

http://www.watchcartoononline.com/the-legend-of-korra-season-2-book-two-spirits-episode-1-2-rebel-spiritthe-southern-lights

Scroll down and there are four different sources you can watch from. Player 3 worked for me.
