Books 1 and 2 of 'The Legend of Korra' didn't have time for episodes like “Original Airbenders.” The closest half hour might be “The Sting,” last season's Korra-less, Mako detective tale. It was an exciting deviation from the stream of plot-driven episodes ... at least, it was in theory. “The Sting” was still adding stepping stones for how Book 2 would wrap everything up. “Original Airbenders” is essential without feeling concretely tied to any big picture, Zaheer's nefarious motives or everything Korra's dealt with in Zaofu. Much like 'Avatar: The Last Airbender,' 'Korra' strays from the path to detail its well-worn characters. It's a breath of fresh air(bender).

In “Old Wounds,” that passive aggression literally cripples the diligent cop. The only solution: memory-provoking acupuncture!

Don't mess with Conan O'Brien's masturbating bear. Just don't, it's the wrong thing to do. The host of 'Conan' has long featured the bear on his various late-night shows, and he is a truly beloved member of the O'Brien family, which is what makes Stephen Colbert's recent claim that his show was the first to feature a bear touching himself on air so truly egregious. It's just wrong, Colbert! And Conan is not happy with you!
