I just finished my season-by-seaon look at The Legend of Korra, and overall I find it a facinating series (6,000 words of fascination later). The most fascinating, and my favorite thing about this series is the complicated and diverse discourse the show has. This might be because I relish argument as pure sport (read my piece on Smash Bros for further understanding— it’s good). You … Continue reading Yeah, but is The Legend of Korra good, Though?
We have come to the end of this journey. A look at a series that I have more to say on an upcoming editorial, but seasonally has reached its end. I don’t have a whole lot of preamble. After season three ended I didn’t keep track of season four cause I wanted to wait and watch it when it was over, and I heard no … Continue reading Avatar: the Impossible Followup – A look at The Legend of Korra Seaon 4
As alluded to at the end of my season 2 look, Korra was removed from Nickelodeon and put onto the web for streaming. Though I cannot remember an exact day or episode, I do recall that it was at the start of this season. This is strange and doesn’t truly effect the series other than maybe one scene they probably couldn’t have aired. It’s removal … Continue reading Avatar: The Impossible Followup – A look at The Legend of Korra Season 3
The real struggle I, and many fans, of Korra had about is its wasting of what could be interesting stories. It is no longer the epic tale of a century long war. Instead it is what the Avatar was always supposed to do— help create the peace and balance of the rather mystical world they inhabit. Season two tries to get the series there. Season … Continue reading Avatar: The Impossible Followup – a look at The Legend of Korra Season 2
Avatar has been getting a lot of buzz since the announcement of a live action revival in the work. That buzz exploded when it came out that the creators of Avatar left the project (which doesn’t mean it’ll be bad or like the writers will miss the point of the series. I mean the same creators made Korra and that’s not as good, so it … Continue reading The Best Way to Revive Avatar the Last Airbender
Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of those shows that feels like the perfect conflagration elined into a giant bolt of lightning in a bottle that not even its sequel series could recapture. That makes the news of another live action retelling feel odd. It’s impossible to improve on a show that is just so tight and strong. But, if it must be done then … Continue reading 5 Ways to Improve Avatar: The Last Airbender
In this current rewatch of Avatar the Last Airbender (I tried a couple years ago when it was on Amazon Prime. I got to the final 4 episode conclusion, went on vacation, came back, and found it had left prime. Just my luck) I had a thought that feels like it should be so obvious to everyone, and that the show pushed it so hard, … Continue reading Katara the Avatar (Or How Odd is it That Katara is the Narrator?)
