This is probably the best, most autistic review of Korra since E;R's. Can't wait for part two.
Why the fuck can't I get over the trauma of Korra? Why won't the pain go away?

Those "Brain loading up next word" noises like 'um' and 'y'know' shouldn't be in your video. They slow down the pace and are just grating to listen to. Long, unedited clips of the show to demonstrate why it is bad are just dull to watch. The basis of humor is subversion of expectations, not referencing things. Random Metal Gear Solid alert noise isn't funny.

Finally watched it (recommend double speed), brought up some interesting points that haven't been mentioned before (empty streets, new locations feeling hollow, lack of flashbacks, story inconsistency, etc). Just makes me want to watch the original series again, incredible that they had a more fulfilling new locations once per episode while Korra didn't.

Why the fuck can't I get over the trauma of Korra? Why won't the pain go away?
Potential for greatness, that's why.

Aiden Hill

Thanks, for some reason I like listening to these autistic overanalysis videos. What I find truly remarkable with Korra is that I have watched a number of such videos already by different people, and somehow each one always manages to find new problems with Korra the others have not yet discussed. Conversely, everyone keeps finding new good things about the original series; I never noticed that practically every episode of AtlA had a different setting (multi-part episodes not counting of course). Korra and AtlA are really polar opposites, almost like a Yin-Yang relationship on its own. Korra is a goldmine for autistic dissection, you could build an entire class just around taking this shit apart and there would still be more left for generations to come.

I didn't notice them either. I think there was an instance where he was doing it intentionally because he was doing the "idiot voice", but that doesn't count.

Justin Murphy
Justin Murphy

Maybe I'd pay more attention to these faggot reviewers if they actually harped on about Book 3 and Book 4 for a change, which are actually in some ways even worse than Book 1 and Book 2.

I mean fuck, it took until E;R pointed out what a selfish little bitch Wan is for people to stop going "Book 2 sucks but the Beginnings episodes are great!". Before that, the only other person I found to actually shit on those 2 garbage episodes was an obscure feminist reviewer.

Instead we get endless videos about how Books 1 and 2 are horrible and then it turns out that the makers are autistic morons who have shit taste when it comes to Books 3 and 4.

People like to talk about the Korrasami shit being the worst part of the finale, but I always thought Korra being able to talk Kuvira into surrendering was just as retarded.

Isaiah Bennett
Isaiah Bennett

It was even more retarded because Korra has had absolutely no character development up to that point which would explain why she suddenly wants to talk her down instead of just beating her ass into submission like she's done with almost every other villain before then. Hell, like five minutes prior she was actively trying to do exactly that to Kuvira inside the mech.

Then, she suddenly has a change of heart because reasons and decides NOT to beat Kuvira into an unconscious pile, probably because Bryke realized that Korra has been a completely static character up to that point and they needed SOMETHING to show for all that screentime. In fact, it's amazing how, even though almost half of Book 4 is dedicated to Korra supposedly rebuilding herself, she does not change as a character whatsoever. She's still the same in the last episode as she was in the first - impulsive, stupid and beating shit into submission instead of thinking.

I'm not even going to mention her bending the spirit beam at the end because that was stupidity on par with whatever the fuck Jinora did at the end of Book 2 to defeat Giant Evil Man/Spirit Hybrid in terms of being "don't question the logic, just go with it".

Season 3 starting off with showing there is secret dark edgy counterpart to the White Lotus makes it lose automatically. It gets to the point where the head of the team gets secret flying power by being sad even though no other Airbender showed this can be done (not even Aang).

and struggles to connect the conflict in one season with the next

They did settle the Equalist conflict in a cheap way (yes Amon being careless enough to bend in public and getting some non-Bender to be president totally ends the Equalists).

There's also the point that the Avatar franchise is tainted for the foreseeable future. Doubly since they didn't TLA alone after it ended and sent out the comics.

On a related note, I'm figuring it'd be neat if there was a future Avatar series that went full Fist of the North Star and took place in a post-apocalyptic world. You already have the setup (spirits go ballistic or get used for weaponry, Kuvira's army still around while the EK falls apart, Equalists stage a comeback). It'd also give room to retcon the worse parts of LoK.

When is someone going to make a video on how awfully Book 3 squandered the villains ?

"Squander" implies they were a good idea. They weren't. The Red Lotus were gimmicky villians with their ultimate plan to kidnap a little girl while babbling about muh chaos.

Or the shitstorm that was Book 4 and that god awful finale with the giant robot ?

The giant robot attack was done to remind the audience that Kuvira is badwrong and Wu/Suyin/Korra are goodright. She didn't do enough on-screen beforehand to show that.

Especially since Kuvira still had the upper hand after the giant robot was stopped. They had Kuvira dump her backstory at the last minute since they blew too much screentime on Wu singing and the wacky antics of the Airbender kids.

Actually, that touches on another issue: How Korra suffered from an overly large cast. I mean there was Korra and her posse, Aang's other kids, Tenzin's kids, The Bei Fong clan, Varrick, and whoever else I didn't mention. The show especially put too much focus on the adult portion of the cast. Compare with this with TLA, where the show never waivered from following Aang and Zuko with others like the Water Siblings, Toph, and even further Iroh having their roles without overstaying their welcome.

I would call the key part in it being garbage was how it served as an awkward attempt to shove in Kuvira's backstory after doing so little to explore the lead antagonist.

Christopher Reed
Christopher Reed

I'm telling ya, Kuvira's sudden surrender is a nice starting point and motive for an Earth Empire soldier to take over with the excuse that Kuvira betrayed them all and they will continue the fight etc. You know, kinda like how Big Boss felt betrayed by the Boss? Mixing my things here but could've been a great idea.

Carter Flores
Carter Flores

That WOULD fit. Unfortunately we're meant to just accept that Wu declaring the Earth Kingdom a republic with elections ala Republic City right before quitting is just going to magically fix it.

Also, the way Suyin treated Kuvira compared to Bataar Jr. yet again shows how garbage she is.

Carson Foster

Don't forget about the episode where Bolin and Mako recap the plot to Varrick.

Christopher Allen
Christopher Allen

That too. Actually, that touches on how Varrick's character was chucked downhill. He was an interesting, if irrelevant, villain in Book Two. They must have noticed he was one of the better parts of it alongside adoring the character too much, so they wrote in a Get Out Of Jail Card for his Book Two villainy and forced him into a goofy sidekick for Korra's posse.

Parker Diaz

Perhaps when the dollar collapses and the US loses its power, and with it it's ability to enforce copyright law, someone will make a true sequel series to the original, set in an alternate continuity. It would be interesting for it to go the way of Samurai Jack, showing us mature content like the full implications of bending damage and sexual relations between main characters with more moral ambiguity than the last two series.

Julian Jackson
Julian Jackson

I can imagine there would be a massive power vacuum within the new Earth Nation, with regional warlords fighting over who would succeed Kuvira. The remnants of the Earth Empire aren't going to step down and hand over power to foreign special interests. Just look at Iraq and Afghanistan.

And let's not forget the URN. The invasion and subsequent destruction of Republic City was essentially their 9/11. With countless homes and livelihoods destroyed, the stage has been set for an authoritarian government to seize power, rallying the hatred of the people to invade the Earth Empire, starting the next great war. It's a shame this was a missed opportunity in the comics. But who gives a shit about them anyway, let alone the Avatar franchise at this point?

Brandon Rogers

One minor aspect of Korra that I felt like the series could never talk about was awkward issue of "breeding" more airbenders users into the world with the genetic bottleneck of Aang (and then Tenzin) being the last one. You either have a world where every future airbender is a descendant of Tenzin's kids or you get what Book 3 did and just made a whole bunch of randoms airbenders for the sake of (future series?) genetic diversity.
There also the former relationship between Tenzin and Lin, you have a guy who is now the new "last" airbender (after Aang dies) and an earthbender woman who doesn't want (or like?) kids. It's going to be an unpleasant situation to not want kids but at the same time being told if you get knocked up you can bring more airbenders into the world (and that assuming they don't end up being non benders or earthbenders). Hell, it's no wonder why Tenzin ended up having 4 kids with his wife the non bender Pemma.

To make this even more fucked up sounding, if you applied this idea of a near extinct (male) animal subspecies needing to breed to have a chance of passing it's "unique" lineage on as many of the next generation as possible, you would be making that animal mate with as many females as it could to have as much chance of having kids that are like the father. Do you think Republic City is calling up Aang or Tenzin going have ya sired another airbender yet? Because if ya wife ain't putting out we have tons of woman willing and waiting to get on the end of your airbender dick?

Benjamin Williams
Benjamin Williams

An alternative way Bryke could've handled this was to have Aang bestow airbending on the descendants of airbenders who managed to escape the Fire Nation and seek refuge. If Aang can take away bending, than surely he can bestow it, especially upon the air acolytes, who were probably descendants of airbenders themselves, and the perfect candidates for this due to their commitment to air nomad traditions and spirituality. It would've been beautiful to see Aang bring back his nation from near extinction, it would've probably made him shed tears of joy.

It's a hell of a better and more plausible way to bring back airbenders than, "Vague cosmic event bestows bending onto random people in the Earth Kingdom, because Harmonic Convergence."

Levi Allen
Levi Allen

That would be good. In speaking of genetics, I always wondered how Amon's new society would work. Benders would be probably on the lower class but how would he prevent more benders from showing? Would he use genetics that might create an imbalance and the Avatar might have to fix it or something.

Hunter Williams

If he wasn't just comic relief and an excuse to give Kuvira a superweapon, I wouldn't have minded him returning.
The ATLA comics are almost all godawful except maybe that one where Aang and Zuko form the area that ends up being Republic City. Korra's comics shoved in some bullshit about how Ozai and his dad hated gays and Kiyoshi was bisexual and it's as terrible as it sounds.

Hunter Bennett

Funny quirk of the Air Nomads that isn't really brought up, there is NO non bender in the Air Nomads, they can all airbend due to their high spirituality (which then leads to everything in Air Nomad society involving airbending, like their hard to reach temple locations, sport, etc).
So when the Air Nomads were wiped out, Aang really is the last of the Air Nomads (and thus airbenders), there is no off shoots of them because they somehow all lived only at their 4 air temples. I will admit it always seemed bizarre that NO ONE escaped, then again it might be a bit hard to hard with giant Air Nomad tattoo's on your head and body and it's never been stated how long the Fire Nation's "purge" in the 100 year time span.

the air acolytes
They are basically massive fangirl/boys of Air Nomad culture and sought to keep it ways alive. If the purge by the FN was that effective, then none of them are related to the Air Nomads. I can't really remember but I think none of them became airbenders in Book 3, which seemed a bit stingy, hey random earth kingdom guy who lives in his mom's basement, you can now airbend! While the person who dedicated his life to preserving the Air Nomad ways, the big spirit/comic event says fuck you, go cry a river! Because that's the closest you will ever get to bending anything!

Alexander Gonzalez

Funnily enough, I think the short lived card game had a secret group of airbenders who survived. I kind of wish they'd gone that route instead of the whole 'random assholes being given bending' thing.

Joshua Bell

Wasn't that one of Ehasz's ideas for a fourth season or something?

Ayden Peterson
Ayden Peterson

You're putting too much thought into it. Amon's Non-Bender Supremacy schtick is just a forced attempt to ape X-Men with the Equalists as Bolivar Trask and Co. doubling as a Communism analogue. The season never addressed how he would have maintained control over the city, let alone spread his revolution to the rest of the world.

Info on bending before LoK happened said that what bending benders do wasn't hereditary. So, Aang could rebuild the Air Nomads by picking up bender children and having them covert to Air Bending.

They just wanted an airbending villain who wasn't connected to Aang.

Verrick's story was done. He was a treacherous war profiteer who got sent to jail. Him being trusted enough by anybody important after what he pulled is garbage.

Korra's comics shoved in some bullshit about how Ozai and his dad hated gays and Kiyoshi was bisexual and it's as terrible as it sounds.

It also made the Air Nomads a tumblrtopia that totally accepted being a fag or dyke. Despite the opposition to homosexuality Tibetan Buddhism.

Yeah…that comic is shit but then again, the comics ain't exactly canon. Unless you believed that Zuko's mom left her son alone with her bastard of a husband, who may or may not have abused Zuko throughout his childhood, to gallivant with some no named peasant…right?

Eli Thompson
Eli Thompson

No I don't. I also don't believe Ursa was an innocent victim of big bad patriarch Ozai. And also not that wife abuse was one his many cruelties.

Isaiah Morris

Because I'm pretty sure Ursa's the one who either suggest to Ozai to axe his dad and take over as Firelord…or she herself did the deed.

Juan Myers
Juan Myers

She did both, yeah. She suggested it to him because she knew how to make an undetectable poison because the plot demanded it.
Fuck the Avatar comics, they're all shit.

Samuel Martin
Samuel Martin

Now this is something that would have made sense. I cannot imagine the Fire Nation being 100% thorough with their genocide. I remember one of the short comics had general Zhao set up a trap for Aang where he scattered old Air Nomad artifacts and spread rumours of a surviving group of Air Nomads. When he had Aang cornered he explained that the Fire Nation was using the same trick to hunt down the small pockets of Air Nomads who had survived the initial purge.

It would not be much of a stretch to imagine that some small groups did not fall for this trick and managed to remain hidden. A hundred years of genocidal persecution would then have warped the peaceful Air Nomads culture into a culture of deception, secrecy and desire for revenge. Imagine now these small groups hearing about how Aang killed the entire Fire Nation navy single-handedly at the North Pole, and they would come to see him as a dark messiah figure who would wipe out the Fire Nation in revenge. And then when they found out that not only did he not kill Ozai, but also set up Ozai's son on the throne, they would become even more hate-filled and vindictive.

Yeah, it's edgy fan-fiction, but tell me it's not massively better than what we got out of Korra.

I will admit it always seemed bizarre that NO ONE escaped, then again it might be a bit hard to hard with giant Air Nomad tattoo's on your head and body and it's never been stated how long the Fire Nation's "purge" in the 100 year time span.
Only those who had mastered air bending had tatoos. There would have been a number of air benders who did not yet have tatoos but where close to mastery, or were already masteres but had not yet received their tatoos.

Plus, the initial purge only targeted Air Nomad temples, the surviving groups could have fled to the Earth Kingdom as refugees.

Isaac Parker
Isaac Parker

Honestly, before reading that comic I thought Ursa killed Azulon in his sleep and had to leave otherwise she'd be caught. The comic seemed like a more fucked up version of that.

I remember one of the short comics had general Zhao set up a trap for Aang where he scattered old Air Nomad artifacts and spread rumours of a surviving group of Air Nomads.
Oooh that sounds interesting. Would it be considered canon?

Isaac Brown
Isaac Brown

The more I think about book 2 of Korra I begin to realize it has some similar problems with star wars. Mainly they (or in the case of Star Wars the fans) have this misunderstanding of Taoism duality since duality is not good vs evil just opposites that complement each other. But both franchises combine the Taoist and Manichean philosophies into this weird thing that good and evil need balance rather than just opposing useful complementary forces. Like shit if you wanted Vaatu to fit this more have him be like fire in that he destroys stuff but it clears the way for new growth of forests and stuff. And hell you could have Rava's peace lead to stagnation which is why Vaatu is needed as a counter to her or something. I don't know.

Tyler Cooper
Tyler Cooper

Or instead of good and evil…they could've had Raava and Vaatu be Order and Chaos instead. So instead of being black and white, now you can actually go into something deeper..and it can also play into the "restore balance" thing because the Avatar wouldn't be taking sides but rather try to contain both sides.

Austin Brooks
Austin Brooks

There's a comic where Sokka and Zuko spar and Sokka calls it sword bending, yeah.

Carter Russell
Carter Russell

But both franchises combine the Taoist and Manichean philosophies into this weird thing that good and evil need balance rather than just opposing useful complementary forces.

That's not it though. Book Two never actually says that Vaatu is needed for some cosmic order with Raava. Vaatu is presented as a strictly malevolent force throwing the world in darkness and chaos who must be stopped at all costs that Unalaq worships even though his awakening would mean bad stuff for the Water Tribes.

Book Two and really the rest of the series can't decide whether the Avatar is a force for balance as established in TLA or a force for good/order/light/paragon. This is supported by the Spirit World episodes showing spirits being cute and fluffy when not corrupted by Vaatu, suggesting that being cute and non-threatening is the base state for them (if not all spirits) and darkness is merely a disease that turns them violent and dangerous, rather than light and dark being two portions of their beings following the yin/yang tradition.

It's a failing of post-Christian morality. Lefties, especially who produce fantasy, can't make up their mind whether or not the world/humanity is inherently "good" with "evil" being an invasive disease that needs to be wiped out (with its source being a sole malevolent force like Whites/White Males/Males) or that if they are indeed things then both are greatly integrated within the world/humanity and even necessary for completion (as in Eastern Asia's religions and philosophies). Where worldbuilding is concerned, modern writers take up the yin/yang dynamic since it's neat and symmetric and allows you to write a backstory with plenty of wars and world-changing cataclysms, but when we zoom in to see our characters, we see them live in a world where "good" is the normal order of life and "evil" is treated as something that has no right to be there. Fedoras want to have their cake and eat it too.

Hudson Reyes
Hudson Reyes

I remember proposing way back that Raava and Vaatu could have been the spirits of creation and destruction respectively that recreate the world every time it falls out of balance. So instead of Good vs. Evil, it's more like two entities working in harmony, with Vaatu bringing about the Apocalypse, while Raava then creates the world anew from the ashes of destruction brought about by Vaatu.

Cameron Long
Cameron Long

A lot of Chinese Wuxia stories elevate using a sword beyond a simple act of stabbing to a mystical artform that imparts wisdom and enlightenment to its dedicated students. Anyone can wave around a point bit of metal, but only a truly enlightened individual can use one to its fullest potential… or some such hokey faux-spiritualist bullshit.

If Vaatu has to be a thing then just make him some aftermath of the airbenderers getting killed off. All evidence in TLA says something like that had never happened before. Wiping out a tree of bending ends up having a serious effect for both man and spirit.

The Red Lotus managed to be even more garbage in idea than Unalaq.

Ah but you see its because he has no material connections! Despite his allies, and his goals….riiight.

But the worst part is that they didn't prevail. Think about it: Now every Avatar will be born following the path of Korra as a mentor.
It took 10,000 years of avatars for there to be enough Avatar Spirits to just tell Wan to fuck off. Now they will need at least 20,000 years more for the Avatar Spirits to overcome Korras toxic influence.

Also their Gimmicks where Awful. Like Combustion Man pretty clearly was so restrained because that's how he had control over his chi patterns and such. The New Combustion Lady was all emotional and shit and it didn't feel right at all.

It was so slapdash.

Oliver Carter
Oliver Carter

But the worst part is that they didn't prevail. Think about it: Now every Avatar will be born following the path of Korra as a mentor.

The obvious fix for that is a cataclysm enabled by Korra's action to torch both the world of man and spirit and mess up the Avatar cycle. Throw out Raava and stick with the Avatar being the spirit of the world itself that didn't incarnate after Korra finally kicked the bucket thanks to all the havoc she permitted to happen. When the world finally gets back in business it incarnates as the first of another set with Korra not at all an active past life.

Avatar:TLA is pretty incredible for having one of the best PLOTS in action adventure…ever. Like It escalates perfectly, is always tense, has a certain level of levity but also dread.

Korra has never had a good plot, but season 3 is where the writing was done on papers made out of contrivance pulp, and the ink made out of more contrivance:

Spirit world no longer land of the DEAD for some reason. How Convenient.
Fucks over a city and gets banished, but whatever she didn't give a shit about that place anyway. How convenient.
For some reason this causes a rise in Airbenders because otherwise, Korras actions would all be awful. Airbenders aperantly have no real relation to the balance of the world and where powers granted by Lionturtles that never hid into the spirit world but this happens anyway. How convenient!
Turns out cursing a ton of people with uncontrollable powers and forcing them into a lifestyle they didn't choose or risk hurting themselves and others is OK, and korra never gets any shit for this. How convenient.
Because of the evil Earth Kingdom instead of just politely conscripting its air bending citizens or even using Dia Lee brainwashing capabilities, just captures and starts rough housing the citizens means that there are a whole bunch of airbenders with no CHOICE but to become air nomads.
Mako or Bolin or whatever suddenly becomes a Lava bender. How convenient.
Instead of sending an army to secure facilities they send Zuko alone. On a dragon to fight off the prisoners. How convenient.
Escape transport by pure fuckng bullshit. Are you kidding me the pipe just breaks are you SHITTING me? How fucking convenient.
Bad guy spontaneously learns to fly. How evermoreso convenient.
"Hey you defeated those bad guys you caused to let loose in some kingdom somewhere else whilst vine tentrils devour our homes, welcome back now that you have nowhere else to go!" How fucking convenient.

mfw normies defend this shit
and it's not even out of writing but out of "OHHHH LOOK HOW CUTE KORRASAMI ARE!"
there are people who think Korra is better than ATLA
there are people who don't realize just how dangerously toxic a LOT of the "messages" in Korra are and that alone frightens me more than anything else. I feel almost glad there might not be a new series just so
A.) no more Bryke pandering that got us in this mess in the first fucking place
and B.) I feel like most people who worked on Korra already suffered as is (at least the ones worth a damn)

I'm just glad the Voltron fiasco brought this somewhat to public light

Evan Ramirez

When I saw Korra in a wheelchair, I thought she was crippled from the last fight and from the mercury. I didn't know that she just got a near death trauma. Is it wrong that I think it that her depression would have been more justified if she got crippled from the poison? Maybe because while it's understandable when people get PTSD even after surviving a battle, not everyone is expected to be sobbing and depressed even after they overcame a great obstacle.

Nathan Diaz

Fuck no. If anything you're very much right in wondering such what ifs.
Maybe because while it's understandable when people get PTSD even after surviving a battle, not everyone is expected to be sobbing and depressed even after they overcame a great obstacle.
Precisely user, This would've been not only a great arc, maybe even a redemption arc but also one where Korra becomes much more powerful in a more justified way. She started out as such an arrogant cunt so I was REALLY hoping her arc would have her start out as more humble but SJW's and normies can't into good storytelling

Jackson Torres

Heck, if it's me, I had the real first Avatar reveal that Wan was a notorious bullshitter and the Raava Vaatu thing was him fucking up and conning Korra to fix his mistake…only to make it worse because Korra.

No but some of the people and animation studio that worked on Korra did Voltron.

Alexander Jackson

Just say that Unalaq was a babbling cultist, Wan was merely the oldest Avatar we have reliable accounts of his life instead of the first Avatar eva, Raava is a misinterpretation of the Avatar's role in balance (it speaks for chaos as well as order), that Korra was acting out of rage towards what was expected of her when she opened the portals. It's easier than you think.

Andrew Parker
Andrew Parker

I dunno…Wan being a bullshitter and a conman would've been good too but your ideas good too. Been thinking about the First Avatar…maybe have his story set when everyone can energybend? I mean, the Lion Turtle did say everyone used to be able to energybend. Set it during a Three Kingdoms Era like setting and we're golden.

Colton Wright
Colton Wright

According to the Lion Turtle we see at the end of TLA it was in the time before the Avatar that everybody could energybend. I think that there was indeed such a time where all humans existed in more or less the same place, but something drove them apart to go live on the Lion Turtles. That could indeed be in a Three Kingdoms-esque setting.

Logan Brown
Logan Brown

Yeah…just retcon it so they don't get element bending by just asking the Lion Turtle.

Kevin Wright

If we're retconning why not just remove the entire series

Jose Cook
Jose Cook

Or…we could just have everything that Korra did blow up in her face. Taking Kuvira down? Good work…but the Earth Empire soldiers ain't backing down. Opening Spirit Portals? Guess what, some spirits ain't exactly friendly to human beings. Red Lotus? Now folks are leery of the White Lotus Society..and thus the Society has to go underground once more or something. Korra pairing up with Asami? Turns out she's a villain or the relationship doesn't last

And my personal favorite, the next series would lampoon that we know more about her relationships than her accomplishments.

Christian Nguyen
Christian Nguyen

None of these really work, though. A story like that jumps around too much, it feels inconsistent and without a clear goal. If they really wanted to do Korra, why not just combine the Equalists, the Red Lotus and the Earth Empire into one singular antagonistic group. The Equalists are a bit of a stretch in that world but I can completely buy the idea that there's a group of people that believe in the extermination of an entire group to achieve their goals. That's what Sozin did, and then Azulon and Ozai after him.

The issue is trying to fix Korra, Korra is unfixable in its current state. Interesting ideas could be salvaged but the overall lack of cohesion, talent and vision is what killed it.

Jack Nelson

A story like that jumps around too much, it feels inconsistent and without a clear goal.

We're talking about a sequel and how to salvage the franchise in it. Suggestions like having Kuvira's army continue to be a threat since the show never actually fixed the issue they were rampaging over (namely, the Fire Nation seized EK territory, kept it despite losing the war, and the EK suffered from years of FN terror with little to show for it) is a legit note.

If they really wanted to do Korra, why not just combine the Equalists, the Red Lotus and the Earth Empire into one singular antagonistic group.

I'd suggest to have a revised Equalists in one arc and the Earth Empire in the one after it.

The Airbenders were another race/ethnicity. Benders aren't.

Alexander Davis

If you think about it..Korra never did end the Equalist and Earth Empire threat. Sure, you take out the leaders…but when exactly taking out the leader ever ended a movement?

That's even worse because you have to act in the confines of the show's established lore and shit. The same lore that fucked up ATLA's lore. I'd rather just retcon the entire thing and restart from scratch, that'd be more interesting than trying to salvage garbage. Try taking some of the (very few) things that Korra did right, some interesting concepts, and just do another show. Just bring in Aaron Ehasz to do a new show, I'm sure he'll salvage it.

The Airbenders were another race/ethnicity. Benders aren't.
Benders is more like a special off-set, isn't it? I can still believe the idea that this "Bender-class" shit could work considering that irl faggots cry about classes. In a world where there's superpowered beings, of course non-powered being will be iffy about it.

Thomas Adams
Thomas Adams

There's certainly some potential there.

- The Equalists figured out that their leader is a bender who used them for his own gain, causing them to take an even harder line against benders. There's less organized resistance now, merely attacks on individual benders all over the Republic.
- The Spirit Portals are now open but there's spirits roaming around. And from what we've seen of the spirit world and the normal world with spirits in it with Wan's flashback this is not a good thing: Korra now has to reenact Werewolf: The Forsaken all by herself (ask /tg/ about this).
- The Red Lotus was never really public, but given the events of Ba Sing Se I wouldn't be surprised if the place turns into Mao's China on the short term.
- The Earth Kingdom has turned into a series of warring states and robber kingdoms that have to be pacified, and even if they are legitimized by the last Earth King you still have a massive shitfest on your hands that's like the Romance of the Three Kingdoms if China was the Balkan.
- As for Korra's relationship with Asami? Well, we already know that Korra's parents approve, but remember that this the world is in the equivalent of the 20s. Even if the two managed to stay together you'd have to deal with the fallout of a religious figure and the CEO of an important business being in a lesbian relationship. Korra would lose a whole lot of political clout as well as popular support, while Asami can look forward to the highups in her company turning against her. And if Korra's dad were to use his political power to make same-sex marriages legal so that his daughter can marry he'd be in all sorts of hot water as well.

Agreed. This new series would need to have to wipe the slate clean in an alternate continuity , but with all the events and characters of Korra being retconned and rewritten in a way that didn't fuck with the previous series' lore and wasn't insulting to our intelligence. Here's what I have.

With Korra, Kuvira and all the other cast members dying in the spiritual explosion, A power vacuum would arise again in the Earth Empire, and with Earth being next in the Avatar cycle, the nations of the world, as well as regional warlords race to find the new Avatar. This new Avatar would be Aang's foil, (and to a lesser extent, what Korra should've been written like) a seventeen-year old child soldier who was conscripted by one of the warlords and had been fighting for him for years to reunify their nation. He's unhinged, has no social skills, and has no other life outside of war. When he claims victories for his nation, he's celebrated as a hero, but deep down he's a tortured prisoner, who gets punished should anything go wrong.

He wants it to all be over, but one day, he encounters two fire nation siblings, a waterbender and an airbender (basically a foil to Team Avatar of ATLA), and they help him go through a cult deprogramming while fighting against his former allies. But are the nations they're fighting for to be trusted, or are they working for their own ends? The Earth Empire may have attacked Republic City first, but does that justify partitioning the Earth Nation to foreign powers? Is the Earth Nation imbalancing the world for defending themselves, while not taking responsibility for an attack on an illegitimate state?

A theme that should be explored in a third series is. "How far is too far?" If the Avatar's the only one who can bring balance to the world, what would happen if he started dictating the affairs of other nations in the name of "preserving balance?" and becomes a tyrant? How would anyone beat the savior of their world, who's destined to bring balance? What could be a more compelling threat to the world than the Avatar himself?

Luis Reed
Luis Reed

Interesting take. Personally I think that if Kuvira had won her first fight with Korra and killed her the next Avatar would be taken in by Kuvira herself and trained to be her successor. Kuvira is a lot of things, but at the end of the day she's still a mortal woman. And who better to succeed the Great Uniter than the Avatar? Get all Avatar: Red Son up in this bitch.

Bentley Price
Bentley Price

That's the least of Korra's worries…pretty sure with her attitude that kind of relationship ain't going to last (and…really, I just want to torpedo that ship as a fuck you to the shippers in general. Heck, if they ask me to do a third series, I'd have my main character be a skirt chaser and with a lot of possible love interest…and then never pair them on screen just to spite them. Next series? His kids would be the supporting role and I will make sure to drop vague hints just to screw with them)

Jonathan Walker
Jonathan Walker

Alternate timeline right there. But I got an idea for the next Avatar. Since Korra's the only link he has, what if he went Avatar state as kid (let's have it when some group were hurting his family), and only having Korra's aggression….accidentally destroyed his home town, making him afraid to do any bending (even his native element Earth is just limited to controlling pebble bullets). So the first half of the series is him getting over the fear of bending.

Nathan Sanders
Nathan Sanders

That feels a bit more Firebender-like than Earthbender. Not a bad idea but definitely needs work.
Honestly, I'd just do a story set in the Avatar world but not centered on the Avatar. Like a Star Wars Expanded Universe kind of shit, maybe have a Firebender trying to return home after being stranded in the middle of the Earth Kingdom after the war's end or maybe a lone, Western kind of story about a lone Earthbender driving away Fire Nation soldiers Man with No Name-style.

Gabriel Diaz
Gabriel Diaz

That's pretty cool. Have the story set during the war, maybe? We could have like a Rozenkrantz and Guilderstein type story where we follow two soldiers who were there during the major events of the story or a story where two soldiers from opposing sides got stuck and having to work together and be close buddies only to realize that if they go back, they might have to kill each other.

Zachary Morris
Zachary Morris

I can get behind that, maybe have it set after the Siege of the North. Where they're prisoners of war by the Water Tribe and during a prison transport, a storm washes them to some Earth Kingdom village and they're badly hurt so they can't bend.

Jeremiah Butler
Jeremiah Butler

Yeah, that story would've been comedic in nature what with those two guys accidentally triggered events in the story…or the ones who accidentally helped the Avatar or something.

The second story? One Fire Nation soldier and One Earth Kingdom soldier got injured in a cave in or fallen off a cliff into the woods or something(one broke his/her leg, the other one got blinded or arm broken or something) and they had to work together to get out. Still can't think of an ending…either they killed each other at the end quickly so they don't have to kill each other in battle, they desert the battlefield or cut to years later and they reunited.

Colton Gray
Colton Gray

Another story idea? You know that one Gundam series, 08th MS Team that focuses on the grunts? Why not have that kind of story?

Isaac Richardson
Isaac Richardson

It's not that it's too comedic, it's that it threads too close to the original.
I don't see why not. I'm not sure what you guys are planning on doing, all I'm saying is try being imaginative about it. Create stories within the lore of Avatar that you want to see be told.

Joseph Rogers
Joseph Rogers

To expand upon my story, there would be another theme of change and stagnation. The world would see a plummet in the number of benders, as the world becomes far less spiritual than it was seventeen-years ago. The URN, exploiting the Earth Empire destruction of Republic City, has fortified their military and become the sole superpower of the world. While in the Fire Nation, Izumi is overthrown by Fire Nation nationalists and replaced by her daughter in a URN-backed coup. This was due to Izumi being ineffective and eroding Fire Nation culture. But it was also to drag the Fire Nation into a war against the EE. The Air Nomads are facing a schism between those who hold their traditions, and those who believe that Aang was a coward who abandoned their people. The Water tribes are exploiting the chaos to sell oil and spirit vines to the URN and Fire Nation.

People are foregoing tradition and spirituality, the world is sliding more and more towards destruction, and the Avatar is desperate to find long lasting solutions to bringing balance to the world. Question is, can he?

Yeah, I can see why. I based it on the unfortunate implications of Lok's ending. The Earth Nation would naturally become militaristic and hostile to other nations, much like the fire nation, but as a response to their constant interference in their internal affairs. The Earthbending Avatar would have to be raised in such a society, in stark contrast to Aang's peaceful upbringing.

Justin Peterson
Justin Peterson

The Equalists just had Raiko getting elected to president. Which might have been okay if the show didn't repeat establish him as badwrong for not letting Korra do whatever she wants.

The Earth Empire just had Kuvira surrender even when she had the forces to maintain a position in the city then have her get some cheap therapy from Korra and Suyin showing how little regard she really had for her, Prince Wu showing how top-notch of a choice he is by just declaring the EK a republic, and Korra going on vacation with Asami in the spirit world.

One tried to addres the grievance of the Equalist but shot itself in the foot by being hostile to holding Korra accountable for her actions. One didn't even try.

William Gomez
William Gomez

Yeah, pretty sure some folks wouldn't agree with Kuvira's surrender and still will go on. Same with Equalists, yes, Amon's gone but that doesn't no one's going to carry that flag forward. Wu declaring EK a republic? Well, there's another ammo for the Empire guys to rally for. They can just say Wu can't lead, gives power to someone else, we're going to fix that

….and I really just wanted to see an Earth Empire Big Boss.

Isaac Anderson
Isaac Anderson

Another thing to consider is what the world'll be like for the next Avatar. If we go by the average lifespan of an avatar (just under 55 years) and that the world is in the equivalent of the late 20s the next Avatar will be 20 in the equivalent of the early 80s. I think that in such a world through the proliferation of information technology and technology becoming more and more advanced bending will turn into something obsolete. You're a waterbending fisherman? Good for you, but advances in fishery means you won't be able to catch up with large modern fishing fleets. You're a metalbender who uses his powers to unload container vessels? Works for the smallest of ships, but because of bulk transport you're now dealing with ships that are impossible to unload on your own in a timely manner because you'll get exhausted and a few cranes can do what you do but don't get tired. Using your electricity generation to power a powerplant? Nice, but because of massive modern plants your lightning is just a drop in a bucket. Use earthbending to lay a bricked pavement super fast? That's good and all, but it doesn't have to be done so fast and it's cheaper to hire people to lay the bricks by hand.

Because bending loses its practical applictions it becomes a more spiritual thing. And in this increasingly cynical world of fast living, big profit and big corporations like the Cabbage Corp Zaibatsu, what is an Avatar to do to maintain balance in the world?

It's more like 200 dude

Kayden Martin
Kayden Martin

(checked)
If you count the number of statues you see in episode 3 of TLA you'll end up with 181 statues, meaning Aang was number 182 (which adds up if you consider that Wan was a Firebender: 45 sets of the four elements is 180, so we had just gotten back to fire when Roku became the Avatar). Wan was 20 when Harmonic Convergence happened, and Korra was 18. There's 10000 years between every Harmonic Convergence. 10000+20-18 is 10002, which divided by 182 is 54,956 and a bit, aka just under 55 years.

Ryder Jones
Ryder Jones

This is my other problem with the 10,000 years retcon. It's said that most Avatars live between 150-200 years, with Kyoshi being one of the oldest clocking in at 230, but now that's impossible or there can't be nearly as many Avatars. In ATLA Roku says that he's lived at least a thousand times. Aang himself lived for 166 years according to Korra, and would have lived longer if he wasn't using the Avatar state for 100 of them.
Fucking Korra ruined everything.

Jacob Thompson
Jacob Thompson

Korra ruined everything

Lucas Hill

Roku said that the Avatar had mastered the elements a thousand times and that he'd do it once again. I don't think that "a thousand" was a hard number, more of an exaggeration or a metaphor than a factual statement. Because if it's not and the average lifespan of an Avatar is as low as 150 years you'd be looking at 150000 years between Aang and the first Avatar, which is bullshit.

Parker Torres
Parker Torres

What I find insulting is just the fact that did all this shit with the Avatar spirit just so they can kill off Korra's connection to Aang and etc. It would have been kinda nice to see Aang as a spiritual mentor to Korra like Roku was. Especially if it was during Book 3 with Zaheer. It would have been neat to know Aang's perspective.
Or better yet, why didn't they just stick to Aang as the main protagonist of the franchise? Or make that tv film about Zuko's mom they said they were going to do but shit canned it for Korra.

I'm honestly not sure if Ehasz could've fixed much, considering that he apparently watched and liked most of The Legend of Korra except for the stuff that everyone hates i.e. the love triangle from Book 1.

Granted, maybe he was just being diplomatic about it, not wanting to burn down bridges, but yeah. Korra needed some serious base idea rewrites, most of the stuff in it was fundamentally broken and couldn't be just magically fixed with better execution.

Austin Morris

Actually, that touches on another issue: How Korra suffered from an overly large cast. I mean there was Korra and her posse, Aang's other kids, Tenzin's kids, The Bei Fong clan, Varrick, and whoever else I didn't mention. The show especially put too much focus on the adult portion of the cast. Compare with this with TLA, where the show never waivered from following Aang and Zuko with others like the Water Siblings, Toph, and even further Iroh having their roles without overstaying their welcome.

I'm glad somebody else noticed this.

The first season could've been just Korra and the Tenzin household and it would've made a fine series. Something different from ATLA. But Bryke was worried about the fans, so they threw in a bunch of needless characters and fucked it all up. Why does Bolin exist when the Air Kids serve the same function? Why have Lin Bei-Fong when Tenzin already has a stick up his ass? What is the point of Asami?

The time we wasted on those characters could've been used to focus on the characters we already have, explore the new setting, learn about Airbending, or expand on the villains, things sorely lacking from the first season of Korra.

Gavin Thomas
Gavin Thomas

Some SJW made a video where he thinks Book 4 has more potential and he really disliked Book 3. Honestly, I think that Book 1 and Book 3 are the only salvageable parts. The series didn't need 4 big badguys in a fraction of the time of AtLAB. Amon shouldn't be so easily defeated or unmasked. If Amon gets killed, have him replaced.

William Campbell

Amon shouldn't be so easily defeated or unmasked.

Pick up the sea and push them back.

It'd be shorter to explain what's NOT wrong with Book 3.

I'm still surprised each reviewer manages to find ANOTHER new thing wrong with each season of Korra, Eg: the spirit designs, vagueness of Korra learning spiritbending/waterbending stuff, characters just standing around talking.
The Book 3 comparison comments were interesting, though it still doesn't take away stupidity of a imprisoned villain plan to escape by being lucky enough to gain airbending out of nowhere. It could have made a little more sense if others from around the world who were also did intense study/spiritual practice of the air nomad ways (like the Air Acolytes) that the villain did also gained airbending instead of just random people.

Or just those with actual affinity for the philosophy, those who have and inclination toward that way of life. Instead it is completely random, which defeats the entire point of having a cohesive culture and race.

I'm not a sacred figure
After AtLA the Avatar was downgraded to "that person over there" instead of a sacred figure. You can count the number of people who respect the station on one mutilated hand, and that is even before the Wan story degrades everything.

The show not figuring out whether the Avatar is a secular figure without any sacred duties or if those Spirits Spirits Spirits are the most important doesn't change how petty Korra acted.

I doubt that Korra will ever be as beautiful, stylistically, or well remembered as this
