    Huh, surprised that that link you posted let me actually watch the full episodes. Cartoon network's does not work in Canada so I assumed Nick's did not either.

Perhaps this will be a bit of a wake-up call to the execs who think that the internet can be nothing but detrimental to a TV franchise.
    Well, there's no denying she's a girl, but the racial characteristics of the character aren't really very in your face. Pseudo-Inuit doesn't really have the same button-pushing potential anyway.

    Besides, she'll be white in the movie.

    Friendship is being there when someone's feeling low and not being afraid to kick them.

    Not knowning anything about Avatar, I have to admit when I saw Korra I thought she was white. Thankfully Spiffy cleared it up with the post below yours.

    Probably due to the blue eyes. If you don't know that's a common feature of the Water Tribe it's an easy enough mistake to make.

    I've never seen an episode of either show, but the important thing is that a show about a strong independent young woman in a male dominated genre is kicking ass in the ratings on the small screen and big screen as well with Hunger Games being HUGE. Being a 33 year old male I'm not exactly going to run out to watch either show but I look forward to the day when my niece is old enough and we can have a real bonding experience by watching both shows.

    Avatar: The Last Airbender is streaming on Netflix if you want to take a look at it. It has plot, character development, humor, action, tension, great art and voice work, accessible to a wide age group ... it's the total package as far as I'm concerned.
