It seems I am not the first to make a topic based on the franchise, but I thought I would bring it back up after re-watching the first series.
The Avatar franchise has certainly taken it's place as one of my generation's greatest animated TV shows, as well as being one of the best animated TV shows of all time...not THE best, but still great. Interesting story, great characters, a diverse cultural background and amazing visuals, both The Last Airbender and the Legend of Korra delivered on entertaining us, minus a certain live-action adaptation...
So, in this topic, fans of the show can discuss on what they like about the franchise, what they dislike about it, what they want to see and maybe some fan theories.
I'll start things off. What I found the most interesting about the leap from The Last Airbender to Legend of Korra was the leap in technology. Granted, it makes sense that Republic City is like that because of Fire Nation machines and resources now being made for other nations as well, however...it seemed like a rather big leap.
TLAB's culture seemed based more around...I dunno, say 14th century Asian cultures, even with the presence of machines. However, after just 70 years, it seemed to leap from 14th century to early 20th century cultures, dress-codes, technologies and settings. However, this IS only one part of the Bending World, and it may not be the case for other cities outside of Republic City.
