You're definitely not alone, loads of people feel that way. Including me, I suppose.
Personally, I kind of like LoK as a series in itself, and would probably enjoy it if I'd never seen Last Airbender, but since I HAVE seen the original series, LoK is a huge letdown and yes, I would even go so far as to say I hate it. It has its moments, but the new characters are nearly all terrible (there are very few who aren't either boring au annoying and any tolerable characters are side-characters who don't onyesha up often enough) and I don't think it suits the modernish setting.
Actually you're not in the minority here, most mashabiki I've come across despise the Legend of Korra. I upendo it, but it's easy to understand why people consider it to be much worse than The Last Airbender
I upendo both shows and can't quite seem to understand why HATE Legend of Korra. Yes, it's different, people's expectations might had differed and, of course, people seem to always compare them both. LoK tells a completely new story, not in the same age as TLA. I don't think it's completely "fair" to hate on LoK, if it's being compared to TLA.
I am same with you. I upendo Avatar: The Last Airbender and I watch it until the last episode. I'm getting bored when I watch the first episode of The Legend of Korra and didn't watch it again. It wasn't much interesting like The Last Airbender did.
