The Legend of Korra is a popular animated television show that aired on Nickelodeon from the year 2012 to 2014. The series is a sequel to the widely acclaimed show, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and features new characters while also touching on the lives of old favorites from the previous series.

The show is set in a fictional world where some individuals have the power to bend specific elements, including water, earth, fire, and air. The central character of the show is Korra (voiced by Janet Varney), a girl who has the ability to bend all four elements and is the chosen one to restore balance to the world.

The Legend of Korra not only explores the world of bending but also delves into themes such as politics, spirituality, and societal issues. The show brilliantly balances the fun and lighthearted moments with the more serious and thought-provoking ones. It has something for everyone, making it a show that is loved by both children and adults alike.

The cast of The Legend of Korra is superb, with each voice actor bringing life to their respective characters. David Faustino plays the role of Mako, a skilled firebender and Korra's love interest. Seychelle Gabriel plays the role of Asami, a wealthy industrialist's daughter and one of Korra's closest friends. Maria Bamford plays the role of Pema, the wife of Tenzin (voiced by J.K. Simmons), a master airbender and one of Korra's mentors. Kiernan Shipka plays the role of Jinora, Tenzin's eldest daughter and a talented airbender in her own right.

The show doesn't shy away from tackling deep and heavy issues. One of the themes explored in the show is the divide between benders and non-benders, with some non-benders feeling like they have no voice in society. This theme is handled sensitively, with the show's creators weaving in both sides of the story and giving it the attention it deserves.

The show's animation is top-notch, with the fight scenes being a highlight of the series. The fight choreography is stunning and visually impressive. Each fight scene is unique, with the characters utilizing their bending powers in new and creative ways. The show's color palette is also a sight to behold, with the creators managing to bring the world of bending to life in vivid detail.

The show features several memorable villains, with the main antagonist of the first season being Amon (voiced by Steve Blum). Amon is the leader of the Equalists, a group of non-benders who want to overthrow the bending elites. The show's writing shines when exploring Amon's backstory and motivation, making him one of the most complex and interesting villains in animated television.

Another unforgettable villain is Zaheer (voiced by Henry Rollins), the leader of a group of anarchists who aim to create chaos in the world. Zaheer is a philosophical and intelligent villain, making for a formidable opponent to Korra and her team.

The Legend of Korra also has an excellent soundtrack, with each season featuring a unique opening theme and score. The show's music is composed by Jeremy Zuckerman and his team, who also worked on the music for Avatar: The Last Airbender. The music is able to set the tone for each scene and enhance the emotions being conveyed by the characters.

In conclusion, The Legend of Korra is a fantastic television show that stands on its own while also being a worthy successor to Avatar: The Last Airbender. The show's combination of excellent animation, writing, and voice acting make it one of the best animated shows of the last decade. It manages to balance being fun and entertaining while also tackling serious and important themes. The Legend of Korra is a must-watch for anyone who enjoys quality television, regardless of age.
