I really enjoyed it.  Who were those guys in airbending garb?  Are they people who can airbend, or people who just study it.

This episode has definately cemented Tenzin as my favorite character, which is strange because he wasn't originally on my perspective favorites list.

Also, Meelo is adorable. All the kids are, but Meelo especially.

Mako is so flawless.
I'm speechless.

Everything about him is just perfect.
His badass bending, his voice. EVERYTHING.

This episode had too much awesome. Both the character interactions and the fights were great. Not to mention how it all ties into Korra making her way into airbending.

Favorite bits:

-The Avatar body guards not just being stoic background pieces. The manic look on the faces of the tower guards were hilarious and then the whole lot getting caught again just as Korra is being revealed on the radio. Cheesy

-Jinora and Ikki hugging their father to make up for Korra and Meelo's words. Nice family touch.

-The dynamic between Korra and the brothers. Mako's one of those people who's not deliberately off-putting; it seems he just doesn't realize how badly he rubs people. Bolin is definately the ladies man. Loved how he halted by the gym when he spotted a girl in his periphery. Glad he doesn't come off as trying too hard.

-Methods used in Pro-bending being similar to some of the tactics used in varying sports. That combined with the commentary and the other teams reaction to Korra being allowed to stay just made the whole segment. Oh and Mako winning against all odds. Hopefully anyone concerned about him being a burden to Korra will be reassured.

Ah, now time to check episode 1 discussion. Tongue

THIS SHOW IS PERFECT GUYS. EVERYTHING.

MAKO IS AMAZING. I thought I would hate him, but I just love his character.

Can we talk about how perfect Korra is for Mako. Flawless couple.

THE MUSIC!!!!!! I LOVED IT.

Meelo is adorable. Insanely adorable.

Nothing but love for this show.

You know, if real physics applied, pro-bending would hurt so much.

I mean imagine getting hit in the face by a disk of solid rock, or falling 40 feet into ice cold water.

They have protection and all, but there'll be bruises.

The solution was a little sudden, but I loved the character interaction and pro-bending.

Bolin trying to get into Korra's pants with the old "You can see the whole arena from here" trick was HILARIOUS!!!! I know a couple ballers myself, definitively TruthInTelevision.

I would have given this episode a 9 because I don't like love triangles or antagonists-at-first love stories.

But seeing the real baguazhang circle walking at the end was worth it. Cheesy

The way she changed leading arms like the real Dragon Rolling the Pearl posture.  Toe in, toe out.  Ba step, white ape step.  Meditation in the morning when first waking up for twenty minutes as part of building internal energy.  It's all so accurate ... it makes me want to cry with joy.
