Picking up discussion from the Toy Story thread. As this hasn’t been created yet, and we’ve reached the halfway point with the big mythology episode tonight, I figured I’d start this up for the few on the board who are watching.
“Beginnings, Parts 1-2”
Korra learns about the origins of the first avatar. Korra realizes what she must do to restore balance to the physical and spirit worlds.

Thank you for starting a thread! I’ve really enjoyed this season so far, particularly the episode “Civil Wars, Part 2”.
I have “Beginnings Part 1 & 2” on my DVR waiting for me to watch it when I get home. I love the animation style I saw briefly in the teaser.October 19, 2013 at 8:26 pm #304579
Finally watched this, and WOW, just WOW. Anyone who had any complaints about this season, well I think this episode pretty much nullifies them. Not only the best episode of Korra ever (definitely top 3 of both Avatar and Korra), but one of the best episodes of any show this year (along with Breaking Bad’s “Ozymandias” and Game of Thrones’s “The Rains of Castamere”). This is not just a kid show. Wonderful directing, writing, voice acting (especially by Steven Yeun as Wan), and animation (reminisicent of Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke) If the Korra producers submit this as their entry for Animated Series, then they just might get in.October 22, 2013 at 12:03 pm #304580
The outstanding animated program race is definately heating up. I think it’s safe to say both the final episode of Futurama and Toy Story of Terror are locks to get in. The Simpsons should be safe, especially if either their death episode or their Futurama crossover blows everyone away. We could even see two crossovers get in here assuming that Family Guy finishes Simpsons Guy by the end of the year. South Park already has a fairly strong potential submission with World War Zimmerman and can still produce an even stronger episode by the end of its run. It’d also be fun to see Phineas and Ferb to break in here for Mission Marvel, although the Emmys have never recognized the show outside of the short format animation category in the past. Even with all this stiff competition, though, I’m really hoping Korra wins for Beginings. Talk about an incredible hour of television. Lets hope the shows creators are smart enough to submit this episode and that Emmys are smart enough to give it the nomination.November 1, 2013 at 8:54 pm #304581
