Showing up Late to the “Avatar” Party

I am something of a late convert to the Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra fandom. I’ve known about Avatar for years, and I did actually start watching it at one point in college (I think I got through maybe Book I on Netflix), but I never finished it. And I had enough friends who were Avatar fans that I vaguely knew about Legend of Korra when it started, but all I really knew was that it was in the same universe as Avatar, but with a girl Avatar, which I thought was cool, but again, I didn’t really know much about it. I feel like at this point I should include an apology to all of the people who repeatedly told me I would love this show. You were all correct.
