I hope that we will see Tenzin, Pema and kids wearing water tribe clothing since we see Korra in air bender clothes and I like how she has the sleeves rolled up in one scene.

Thanks to Tv Tropes, I believe that Toza was one of Sokka’s little warriors from the first episode of ATLA. 

Korra is using her adaptability to learn the bending version for probending. Korra needs to assert herself after all those years of being seemingly-coddled by the White Lotus.

I also don't think that the ending was rushed. the reason for my thinking is that she wasn't actually airbending, more like just doing the moves. she did tell Tenzin that everytime she tried to airbend nothing happened.

Tenzin is a hypocrite because he does actually like probending.

These episodes are so pretty. I also like the music; it’s like a mixture of Mulan and The Lion King, mixed with some anime and jazz into it. I also think the pacing could be better. Just like in ATLA, I like this series from episode 1, I just hope it stays good because I would hate to start liking a show and not want to finish it. Same rating as the first episode and same reason for not postiing sooner, except for te tv tropes thing. I am probably forgetting a lot that I wanted to say.

I don’t think that Makorra or Borra are going to happen. To me, it’s going to be someone else but it will get in the way of Probending.

I don't think he's a hypocrite. Korra was succeeding at a skill he had been trying to teach her. Of course he got excited. He loves Korra, he'd be happy to see her succeed, and even if he hates the sport he'd want her to win.

I think he still doesn't like the sport because it goes against what he feels the purpose/spirit of bending is. He doesn't like the violence, is how I interpreted it, and considering Korra doesn't get the spiritual side, he probably thinks getting into such an aggressive, physical sport is counter-productive to what she needs.

Oh man, it's been so long. Yeah I'm kinda late.
I love these two episodes. The colors, the bending, the music... They're all coming back to me. So nostalgic.

Tenzin's kids... I kind of looking at the three parts of Aang, and very little Katara. Fun, lol.

I can agree with Tenzin's point of view on Probending. I can't stand Olympic/Sport style Taekwondo. It teaches you how to score points on each other, not how to stand up for yourself in a *real* fight. I don't think that's what martial arts should be about.

Just rewatched the episode in-between the "Korra: Making of a Legend" snippets. I didn't notice this one expression until this viewing:


It's these little, specific expressions that you may not even catch the first time that puts this and the previous series at least a whole notch above any other stiff, model sheet-shackled show out there. You can tell exactly what she's feeling here, but you can't immediately describe it in simple adjectives. Any other action-based animation would've just used one of the five or seven expressions they already have in stock.

And I have to note the asymmetry in the drawing here; no part of her is perfectly parallel to the other side of her body. That stands in stark contrast to other action show character models that, in their ironic goal of being more realistic, wind up less realistic simply because there is nothing natural about perfect symmetry in biological beings.

The animation of those first two episodes was really fantastic.

I love the fact that there is a picture of Lin on the side of the paper she is trying to airbend against.  Angst anyone?

Angst?  Nah, that's just Korra being vindictive.  xD

It's hard to tell, but I think that might be Tarrlok on the opposite side of the paper.

I really love the dynamic between Korra and Tenzin in this episode. Tenzin is the strict teacher/father coping with the rebellious teenage student/daughter. I love their relationship!

I agree with that. Tenzin and Korra continue to interact well. The humor this episode was pretty spot on. Jinora was hilarious as was Korra and the other air kids. I also loved the part where Ikki and Jinora hug their dad after Korra and Meelo storm off. Anyway, Bolin and Mako had fantastic introductions. People  claim that Mako was the stereotypical stoic jerk-face found in a variety of anime, but I think that was just his design. The poor kid can't help how he looks or sounds, in fact he even said that he was being sincere when he complimented Korra. Bolin was also a delight to watch. I liked him best in the final season, but he was pretty good in this episode as well.

I did not, however, like pro-bending; it made for a rather boring plotline. I was under the impression that it would be more fast paced. In my opinion, the first half of season one should have focused on the bending triads, that would have served as a better bridge to the Equalist sub-plot.
