    That was definitely an introduction worthy of the title "Avatar."

    As an older fan, there were a bunch of things I was happy to see, or that really helped set the tone for where the story is taking place as opposed to the previous series. First, old katara! And the fact that they finally confirmed she and Aang got together. Speaking of, I totally got chills seeing his statue. That and the one of Toph were kicks in the gut saying that they're gone and won't be back.

    The episode got off to a very fast start, speeding through Korra's childhood to her teenage/young adult years in minutes. And she's so cocky! It's like if Sokka were to have become the Avatar. It's easy to see that she's going to have some growing up to do, and in a very different way than Aang did. Props on that, Nickelodeon. I also loved the tone of the current world and how it incorporates today's hot topic of vigilante justice. A great opening episode.
