The Legend of Korra (potential spoilers within)

Recommended Posts

Book 3 premieres NEXT FRIDAY, JUNE 27 at 7PM. The first 3 episodes will air, then a week off because Independence Day, and then it will return on July 11.

There's an extended sneak peek of the first episode on Nick's site, if you wanna watch that.

Just watched the Season 2 finale.

On the whole, I'm far less impressed with this series than I was with TLA. The writing isn't as good, the characters aren't as compelling, and there are too many scenes that just feel forced and cheesy.

But the visuals and the fight scenes are stunning, as is the music. And for both books, the finale found a way to make my jaw drop at the end.

The third season is starting on a very good (and interesting) note. I may be speaking too soon, but suspect this may be a very good season, based on the setup and the approach they're taking with it. Looking forward to more! 8-)

Yeah I think they're finally hitting their stride again because these were magnificent. And I loved Book 2 (and I guess Book 1 as well).

Book 3 is shaping up to be even better.

Great start to the season, my only problem is that the pacing of the episodes is a little too quick, but that's unfortunately a limitation of the 22-minute cartoon format.

As a side note: I'm a little surprised that Nickelodeon let them sneak in something to satiate the Korra/Asami shippers a little.

When I first saw the Book 3 trailer, I was excited for what the season had to offer. I loved everything about the latter half of Book 2, so I kind of have big hopes for this season. I can't wait to see all four of the antagonists together and what their end goal is. And if no one is excited for Boomie, then you're crazy.

Korra episodes are moving exclusively to digital distribution via Nick.com for the remainder of the season, with the fourth season still reportedly incoming.

Seems Nick is adamant on getting rid of this show as fast as they can. Lame.

They have a hot property in their hands and don't know what to do with it... so they're throwing it away without throwing it away.

What on earth are they thinking? If they want good ratings, why not keep the Friday timeslot like they seemed so adamant on doing and then reair it on Saturday mornings in Book 1's old slot? More chances to see it, and ratings will likely improve.

It also doesn't help that there were a lot of people dissatisfied by Book 2 that refused to watch Book 3, so that didn't help matters at all.

It's even funnier when the Book 3 trailer clearly said that these were episodes you couldn't find online

And hey, the rest of the book is full of episodes you can only find online.

I wonder what the story is? I mean, Nick has clearly been going WAY out of it's way to fuck up the delivery this season. Somebody must have pissed of a nick exec or something.

Ratings have tanked apparently, and ratings are still what make the TV world go 'round.

Like I said, a lot of people were dissatisfied with Book 2 and refused to watch Book 3. The timeslot didn't help much, but neither did people not watching (obviously).

I just started watching the series a couple weeks ago and everyone keeps telling me book 2 is like, mind-blowingly awesome.

I had to order it on Blu-Ray via Amazon (still waiting for it to arrive) as finding the show in Canada is next to impossible unless you watch it when it airs and I have much catching up to do. Now that it's going digital, even once I'm caught up it'll be a pain in the ass to watch it because the sites that host it will probably be like "You have to American to watch this because arbitrary reasons."

Get the Hulu extension for Chrome and you can just watch it on nick.com - it changes your IP to one from the US

No, it's not mind-blowingly awesome. It's good, but the first half is rough around the edges. It's only in the second half that it starts to get really good.

I was not expecting the ending to be so bittersweet. I'm also really curious what they are going to do in Book 4 (please, Nickelodeon, don't be a dick and pull the plug).
