The Legend of Korra

Recommended Posts

You see, in my opinion, the thing that this season missed was filler. Everything felt so cramped and so rushed.

One of the best episodes of the original series (Tales of Ba Sing Se) is a filler in its nature.

I actually agree with that, the new city is such a unique environment it would have been nice to explore it with various characters. Shame none of them are as cool as Iroh.

He was way too obvious from day one. Given how smart Konietzko and DiMartino handled the villains last season, there's no way Unalaq can turn out to be the ultimate evil like that; he's probably just misguided—or perhaps entirely correct and just a dick about it.

But still, yes, Korra is entirely too trusting. I have to wonder what's going to happen considering the end of the third episode.

Also, I'd like to actually have a main clear-cut conflict in this season; it seems like every episode thus far has been the setup for... something. Civil war? Spirit war? Last season, Korra had a goal by the end of the third episode: take down Amon. This time she's in a very shaky place and we still don't know what's going on entirely.

I do like the idea of changing where the series is located somewhat, hopefully they'll continue with this trend. It's really helping to explore the world as it is now.

So tonight's episode was pretty great.

Looks like Unalaq is the villain after all, but he's not an Ozai-level maniac. And he very well may still be right about the spirits. This is good.

I let four episodes build up and I'm watching them all now. Nucktuq: Hero of the South plus Lemur training made my day. This really is an awesome show.

Holy Schnazz, Beginnings was awesome and it's opened up a lot of stuff about what Unalaq might be up to. There is so much to this Avatar deal that's only just become clear.

Theory-

I think we might be looking at a Dark Avatar situation, with Unalaq trying to free the evil spirit so he can become one with it.

Holy...

Yeah, that sounds about right. Awesome.

Looks like I exactly called what was happening with Unalaq.

I wonder if once Korra is done we're going to get Avatar 2040 and jack it all up sci-fi style.

I've been all for a futuristic Avatar series for a long time.

I'm kind of unsure how I feel about the finale to Book 2, just because of the changes it made. Removing the previous avatars and undoing the barrier between worlds basically says "the avatar was a flawed concept to begin with." But we've never really had any indication of that before. On the contrary, in the Avatar Wan two-parter, we saw that a world with both humans and spirits was horribly violent and chaotic, hence why Wan separated them in the first place. It seems like Korra took a stand against everything we've known to be true over the entire run of both series, and she did it very suddenly in the final episode. Avatar Aang delivering a rushed finale in Book 1 was one thing, but overturning the entire universe without warning in Book 2 is another.

It's not that they can't do good things with the universe going forward, but I question whether it's an overall good idea. I almost hope that Book 3 is focused on Korra having to undo her mistake and restore everything the way it was.
