it’s obvious where bumi got his musical talent from

okay I think it’s great that some of Aang’s traits have been showing up in all of his children, not just Tenzin

Avatar: The Last Air Bender [sic] was great because it was incredibly thoughtful for a childrens show and gave the avatar Aang a lot of big issues to work through. There were love stories, but they evolved over time and didn’t take up all of the screen time. With Legend of Korra, it feels like the writers decided that now that there’s a girl at the center of the story, the show has to turn a high school gossip session over who-kissed-whom. Instead of spending time on character development, Legend of Korra mires its characters in absurd, round-and-round fights over who gets to date one another.

B*tch Magazine advocates for less romance in Korra…

I think Korra has a lot of potential. She’s not a perfect “Mary Sue” character: She’s stubborn, doesn’t always listen to others, and likes to solve problems by force. She has a lot of trouble connecting to the spirit world, makes mistakes, and often ends up apologizing to people. But the show’s focus on romance is not giving her enough time to work through her issues. Instead, she is only ever working on dating. It seems like the writers feel that a show’s audience—even for a children’s show—can only relate to a woman through her love story. And that’s just not true. So let’s please have Korra and Asami ditch Mako, develop as people, and save the world together. Thank you. 


The romance is what made me drop LoK with a yawn when I loved the original series. I never care about who wants to date whom. It’s done to death.

See, this is why I have yet to watch the new LoK episodes. I’m more afraid to discover it than I am excited!

i can’t tell if this is an interesting character trait for Korra or just a cop out

the best thing for the water tribe would've been sokka

  • hirroooo: i wish sokka wasnt dead
  • hirroooo: hed fix this
  • hirroooo: bullshit
  • hirroooo: ugh
  • kawaikunaii: damn
  • hirroooo: he would literally sit everyone down, call them each idiots individualy, and explain in lamens terms how and why they are all idiots
  • hirroooo: and then everyone would feel bad and humiliated for acting like fucking children
  • hirroooo: and shape the fuck up
  • hirroooo: the end, thats the end of avatar

expanding your horizons: Very frustrated with Legend of Korra.

There were many things that I disliked about this episode of Korra, but I suppose the main problem with the show in general is that I don’t really care what happens to the majority of the characters. And that’s very disheartening, considering how much I loved the original series. I just can’t…

Wow

wowowowow YES this is almost exactly what I just got done ranting about on skype. DO NOT TELL ME that Aang and Katara were bad parents, DO NOT TELL ME that the stress of SAVING THE WORLD was on par with figuring out politics. DO NOT TELL ME that all Aang did when his first two kids were born was fuck around the earth kingdom doing his job, 

NO!

Let’s be real about this, Anng was the type of person who would literally tell EVERYONE to fuck right off while he raised his kids. He and Katara weren’t stupid. And Sokka, Suki, Zuko and Toph were not so bad of friends that they would not alert Aang and Katara if they were making wrong choices. None of these characters are the type who would throw away years worth of self discipline, development, and lessons they learned the second they became adults. Do you understand how deeply rooted these kids morals and values were? Especially when it came to family. WITH MORALS THAT DEEP AS ADOLESCENTS DON’T TELL ME THEY GREW UP TO MAKE EVERY WRONG CHOICE IN THE BOOK.
