Same SK animation studio did Voltron and Avatar (Studio Mir).  Lots of the same voice actors, too.  Dunno about writers.

I met Melanie MacQueen (Lisa Hayes) once at a VA wine festival.  She was there as her Lady Luck character.  Bought a bunch of scratchers and told her how awesome she is.  I had no idea she was also Lisa Hayes.  Missed the opportunity to fan-worship her for Lisa.

Hm.

They've never really replicated anything near that level of quality in their other work, but given that Avatar is the show that basically set the bar for children's animation for over a decade now with no one else managing to even touch it, I'm probably being overly-critical in complaining about the falloff in quality in Korra and its eventual meandering dissolution into utter tripe.

I'm in, I guess.  It's Netflix, not like I'm not already paying for it.

You're goddamn right. I just happened to catch "Tales of Ba Sing Se" last night. The Tale of Iroh gets me every single time. It's not just one of the best animated shows ever, it's one of the best television shows ever.

I'm a sucker for great characters and for good character arcs and that show had both in spades. If you don't shed tears for either Momo's tale or Iroh's tale on that episode, you are a heartless monster.

Loved Last Airbender. We watched every week when my daughters were young. Just bought the BluRay collection and started rewatching the series with my now 18 year old.  Damn the stories were great and the characters so well developed and engaging. The arc of each season was well planned and executed  and the final 4 episodes, tying the entire series together were pure perfection!

The movie sucked!!!  Shyamalamadingdong's ego literally ruined everything magical about the series. If I ever meet him, I plan to punch him in the face!  Yes I'm bitter and angry!
