That's the one.

Thanks!  Glad to hear there's more things worthwhile to add to my queues.  I was almost out of stuff that sounded interesting to watch, both on Amazon and Netflix.

With the overwhelming positives here, I just searched and found both on Amazon and added them to my watchlist.  And Korra 1-3 is still part of Prime, MartyS.

I think you'll really enjoy them, in case you don't know watch The Last Airbender series first, Korra is the "next generation". 

Maybe Korra season 4 hasn't been off the air long enough to be on Prime, but it should be soon if 1-3 are available.  It's the most "adult" of all the seasons, dealing with stuff like PTSD.

HAH!  Those characters and scenes don't look ANYTHING like the LEGO movies!

 ;D


Seriously, though, that looks kinda' good.  (I know some people might say, "get bent", but the four elements again?  [...plus a Fifth Element?  ...who doesn't even look like Milla Jovovich?! ;) ]).

Oh, and for any interested (since it started from here), I'm over 1/2 way through season 2 of Avatar, the Last Airbender and I'm really enjoying it.  Thanks to all who recommended it!

Hey, wasn't "love" the 5th element in that movie also?  ripoff!

It does looks like something that might be worth checking out next weekend.

Ashleigh Ball is pretty amazing, doing voices that don't sound anything like each other, I don't hear any of her my little pony characters in these.

Yeah... plus the original four elements were the central aspect of their first series: Avatar (origin of my "people might say, 'get bent'" comment, referencing the benders... either too obtuse a reference, or so obvious as to not warrant commenting on... likely the latter :) ).

But an Avatar/Fifth Element hybrid?  With elves?  An elf Ang?  An elf Bruce Willis?  How exactly will that work?  ;D

Fun game to play while watching it, "spot the Lego".  There are Lego pieces used as parts of the background, some obvious, some not so obvious.

As for the show, it's OK, the animation doesn't seem as good as Avatar/Korra/Voltron (I also don't think Voltron is as good as Avatar or Korra), and it is written for a very young audience.  It's basically one long episode, each episode picking up with where the last ended. 

If you are bored give it a shot, it's not something I'll watch more than once.

I don't give a thang one way or another about Drew Barrymore's involvement, but a I'm definitely for a new horror anthology TV show and one all written and directed by women sounds like it could be great.  Hopefully they'll get Jennifer Kent in for an episode or two.

You're the Worst season 4 premiere tomorrow night and it's an hour long!

2 Things:
#1. Lin-Manuel is doing the theme song.
#2. Lily Tomlin will reprise her role as Ms. Frizzle.
