Sursum reviews the currently running Nickelodeon series The Legend of Korra, the sequel series to Avatar: The Last Airbender. Taking place 70 years after the adventures of Aang and the gang, the show focus on Korra, a teenage girl who's the current incarnation of the Avatar. Sursum explains why this show has everything you could possibly want from children's entertainment.
The best animated shows for female characters
“Over the years, animated shows have been able to give us solid proof that cartoons made by women, and cartoons made for women (and girls) can be successful. Here are just some of the extremely positive representations of women in different cartoon shows and franchises.”Are You Afraid of the Dark? “The Tale of the Final Wish”
“I effing loved this one when I was a kid, mostly because it had a certain Mr. Bobcat Goldthwait as the villain. As a wee girl, I was kind of obsessed with the Police Academy movies, so much so that I used to host little mini-marathons. Unsurprisingly, I was usually the only one in attendance, save for my favorite stuffed animals. Later, Cheer Bear and the rest of the Care Bears would begin to make excuses not to attend my Policy Academy parties, so, you know...”Star Trek (TAS) “The Lorelei Signal”
“It looks like the guy who cleans the Enterprise toilets has the week off, so congratulations, Uhura, you are now in charge!”Star Wars Episode II: attack of the groans
More terrible puns, weird acting choices, the perils of directing, and baby Jedi named Liam! We've got it all!Avatar: The Last Airbender “Avatar Day”
“In a half hour episode, minus the commercials, the opening and closing credits, and the Zuko and Iroh subplot, there isn’t nearly enough time to develop a good mystery plot, with the heroes finding clues and gradually realizing the truth. Instead, we have a few cursory investigation scenes, and a bunch of lame jokes, before everything’s solved with a double dose of deus ex machina.”The Last Airbender (2010)
“The worst M. Night Shyamalan movie yet. And damn, is that saying something.”
