    The First 80 Seconds of the New Airbender Series Legend of Korra

    For the unaware, Avatar: The Last Airbender is a legitimately great show. And when it was announced that a new series called Avatar: The Legend of Korra would be a direct sequel to the original, there was (quite understandably) a lot of excitement. Though for fans, anything to get the sour taste of the live action adaptation out of their mouths would have been welcome. Now, the first 80 seconds of the first episode have been leaked online.

    ’90s Nickelodeon Shows Are Coming Back

    Just an introduction, before we blow your mind: a few weeks ago, a fake internal memo from Nickelodeon circulated on the internet, proclaiming that the kids television network had bowed to years of older fans clamoring for a way to watch it’s classic shows, and would be producing new episodes of Doug, Rugrats, The Angry Beavers, and more. So yeah, new episodes, very unlikely. Except now it is almost true. >>> Full story at The Mary Sue.

    Most Roger Klotz Cackles From Doug Are The Same Sound

    The year was 1991. Metallica's Black Album had just been released, Terminator 2: Judgment Day was dominating the box office, and the children's TV network Nickelodeon aired the first episodes of three animated series -- Rugrats, Ren and Stimpy, and Doug -- collectively called "Nicktoons." Rugrats proved to be quite successful. The adventures of the show's inexplicably loquacious infants spanned nine seasons, launched two spinoffs and three feature films. Likewise, Ren and Stimpy's often crude and outlandish toilet humor helped cement its status as a cult classic for adults and children alike. But the third show, Doug, didn't manage to make quite as big a mark on the hallowed halls of animation history.

    Rumor: Marvel to Make Shorts With Its Obscure Characters?

    The buzz lately is that Marvel has been thinking about ways to bring its lesser known characters to the big screen, starting with giving them to smaller studios to make with smaller budgets. Less money, less risk. Now the Latino Review has information from "a well trusted source" that Marvel instead may put
    10 minute short films in front of their feature length movies that will introduce secondary characters like Black Panther, Luke Cage, Dr. Strange, etc.

    Sims Creator to Give Us Television Show, See What We Do With It

    IGN has uncovered Will Wright's next project, and it's not a game. The king of procedurally generated content and creator of Spore and the Sim games (including Sim City, Sim Ant, and The Sims) is instead working with the former president of Nickelodeon and Spike TV to create a television series.

    Well, "create" implies a certain level of completion. Wright prefers to give his audience the tools to create their own fun rather than creating a single experience. Or, in the words of Penny Arcade, this.

    Harriet the Spy: Now About Makeovers, Cute Boys, Beating Popular Kids

    Remember when Harriet the Spy was all about the unintended power of the written word, the folly of pride, and the painfully real social complications of middle school? Well, start trying to forget, because now it's all about teen celebrity heartthrobs, tabloid blogging (or, at least, some heavily romanticized vision of it), and a healthy dose of fake high school drama as only the Disney Channel can provide. If only XKCD had been right... A sad, sad, blasphemous trailer after the jump.

    The Other Avatar: Why You Should Care About The Last Airbender

    Aang fans, we give you: the Superbowl spot for The Last Airbender. Go ahead. Take a moment. We needed one too. We cannot express our feelings about this in this shoddy medium of language and electrons. We watched it here at a table full of other interns who had no idea what's going on, and couldn't keep the big doofy grin off our face. We don't want to talk about whether it will be good or not, we just want to appreciate this.

    So in lieu of trying to shoehorn overused terms like "awesome," "incredible," or "speechless" into some run on sentences, we will use the rest of this post to try and explain to people who have not watched Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender why they should stop associating "avatar" with ten-foot-tall people with arrows and bows, and start associating it with a twelve-year old monk with arrow tattoos.
