Hello and welcome to the Cox in a Box The Legend of Korra Rewatch and Review! In anticipation of the second season of Nickelodeon’s fantastic animated series, I will be watching and reviewing an episode a day for the next two weeks or so. I’m going to be scattering this all over the internet in an attempt to get as many people to read it as possible, because I could use some more solid and substantive feedback on my criticism rather than empty praise from constant readers (though I love you people for those as well). My primary focus is going to be on character development and thematic concerns, with the goal of exposing some of the brilliance lying just beneath the surface of the show, as well as ultimately revealing the core of my frustrations with the season’s finale. Every review will be written with the full knowledge of the entire season, and as such some of the focus will be informed by what happens later, but the focus will be on the individual episodes.
The first five episodes of the series are available for free streaming on Nickelodeon’s official site, under “Full Episodes”. The entire series is available on Blu-ray and DVD, and I highly recommend it overall.
I’ve set up a page in the navbar up at the top of the blog that will include links to each episode’s review as they appear. The first review will be posted… immediately following this post! Please enjoy, and don’t be afraid – in fact, feel encouraged – to leave comments. I want a discussion, people, not an echo chamber!
