I can say that we have been pretty busy this summer, so we have not had much time to settle down and watch TV.  Once things calm down though, we have a few new DVD's from Nickelodeon to check out... Legend of Korra being one that looks geared to the older boys... I am not familiar AT ALL with this...

About The Legend of Korra – Book Two: Spirits:
From the creators of the beloved animated franchise Avatar: The Last Airbender comes The Legend of Korra. After ridding Republic City of Amon and his Equalist revolution, Korra is more confident and headstrong then ever – she is even able to enter the Avatar State at will.  But when political tensions arise between the Southern and Northern Water Tribes, Korra’s hot-headed approach sets off a Civil War of epic proportions.  Complicating factors is the sudden appearance of mysterious Dark Spirits who are attacking the Southern Water Tribe people and Korra learns that even her Avatar State cannot defeat them. With a battle for the fate of the world fast approaching and villains on every side, Korra delves deep into her past lives to connect with the very first Avatar.  Only then will she have the power and knowledge to restore balance between the physical and spirit worlds.

  1. I think you are right when you say that this is probably geared more for the "rough and tumble" set. I've never heard of it either. But kid you not, it looks like stuff my son (25) and hubby watch now! LOL!

    1. I would not doubt it :)
      So many of the animated cartoons are geared for older "kids" now

  2. I laughed at Robin's comment. I bet my older boys have heard of it and like it. :) They're both grown. ;)
