Second episode was released, and i think it made improvements on the first one. more bending action, more character development, and I got more laughs out of it than the first episode.

I seriously love what they did with the sequel series. I think it might not be a failure!

So does the third episode get aired on the 14th, the original premier date?

After seeing both episodes, I can really say that I can't wait for the following ones! :)

I can't find any links that still worked but I watched it, and it looks really interesting.
The world itself has much more technology around, including radios, neon signs, and the overall feel of the setting is very steam-punk.
HERE IS A BRIEF SUMMARY/SPOILERS FOR THE FIRST EPISODES: (Sorry, I don't know how to make a spoiler tag on this forum? It doesn't appear to be in the quick format options along the top):
Korra is a great bender from the time she's only five years old, and she can bend water, fire, and earth when she's just a little kid... Air is the element she has a problem with.
She lives isolated in the South Pole (which is built up quite a bit), and is friends with Katara, who looks just like her gran-gran did in the first series, and its mentioned that Sokka has passed away, as has (obviously) Aang.
Aang's son comes to train her, but is forced to leave almost right away because of problems with Republic City... There is now suddenly a whole anti-bender movement by those 'normal' citizens who feel that benders use their powers to oppress the normal population. (Aang's son also has four children of his own, all air benders, and he appears to have married a fire-nation non-bender woman.)
Korra takes her polar bear dog and sneaks off to republic city, where she sees a group of mobsters made up of benders shaking down a store owner, and she gets involved and causes a lot of damage to the surrounding city and gets arrested by the Police Chief of Republic City, who happens to be... Toph's daughter.
Aang's son comes to get Korra out and its only with the provision she leave immediately that Toph's daughter allows her to leave.
Korra leaves and ends up staying on this island monastery that Aang's son set up. She tries to train in air bending but FAILS spectacularly, even setting fire to antique air bending training screens. He's trying to teach her evasion techniques, and to move gently instead of just plowing through obstacles, but she just can't get it, with her strong personality. (She's very much like Toph was in the first series, only more openly aggressive... There is very little waiting and listening with her.)
The only benders that really seem to be popular are those involved in a sport where teams are made up of one water bender, one earth bender, and one fire bender.
She sneaks away from the monastery and goes to the arena hosting the games and there she meets a guy who is on a really good team, and he takes her to meet his other teammates, one of which is his brother... One brother is an Earth bender and the other a Fire bender (because the nations are all inter-marrying now, there is much less division between the tribes and the characters are no longer color-coded, lol. Fire benders can have green eyes, for instance. Water benders wear red and/or green clothing), and they are on a team together.
The team's water bender doesn't show up for an important match and Korra acts as a stand-in, but promptly gets her butt kicked, indicating that her isolation and out-dated training means she's not even on-par with other benders, and is far from the best bender out there... She accidentally uses more than one bending style and is outed as the Avatar, but is allowed to continue provided she only water bends.
Aang's son hears on the radio that The Avatar is participating in this bending sport and he is less than pleased (he thinks its a waste of and disrespectful to use your bending powers for entertainment and warned Korra to never go near those contests, and here she is, participating in such a thing after sneaking out)... He goes to get her, and he sees her getting her butt whooped, and facepalms.
At the last minute though, Korra's Air Bending "Evasion" training magically just finally "clicks" in her head, and she is able to avoid getting hit over and over, and Aang's son ends up proud that she finally "got it".
And that's about it.
I'll be watching it with my son, although I don't think it will be anything like the first one, so I really hope people don't compare it to the first one so much they can't just enjoy it for what it is on its own.
