Because fans should be critical, too

Announcement: No New Posts Until March

To Hell with it. Don’t expect any more updates, posts, or even silly rants like last time until at least Part One of the Korra video review is done. I can still respond to comments, replies, and questions, but I simply can’t post anything truly substantial until this review is over and done. Sorry for the inconvenience, if that.

See you in March. And Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Have you read The Promise, the three part comic books series? Not only does it serve relevance to Book 1 of Korra but rumour has it that it gives background for the conflict of the Book 2 as well, which is believed to be the spirits are angry with the world.

    • (heavy sigh) I read “The Promise” once. I found it to be completely boring. I like the artist’s drawing style (especially the way he draws Zuko and Toph), but I just couldn’t get into anything that was happening. The main premise was kinda of interesting, and totally in character for Zuko and everyone else, but I didn’t get any enjoyment out of it. I guess that’s subject for a post-length review in the future. I better read it again…

      P.S. If it hints at the spirit problems in Korra, then shouldn’t Amon have legitimately been called upon by the spirits to rid the world of Bending? So many opportunities wasted!

    Well I don’t think bending was the problem with the world. What I think is going on is that the world is changing. The four nations are starting to become less separate. Aang turned his back on Roku by supposedly breaking his spiritual connection. Maybe this affected Korra? I think the spirits don’t want the world to change and keep things “traditional” so to speak. Amon wasn’t looking to bring the world back to what it once was. He was looking to move it forward into a new era without any bending. Although I do think some parts of “The Promise” are dull, the tiny developments feel important, and we can only hope it has some relevance to the next season of Korra.
