Because fans should be critical, too

Part 4.4 of the Korranalysis is Up!

Once I’m done mixing the audio of the next part, that’ll be up, too.

Also, I have a question: should I go back and remake Part One is that it’s up to the standards of the rest of the videos? I feel that Part One may be a hindrance on getting more people willing to sit through the rest. So what do you think?

    Well, making jokes about something being worse than the Hiroshima bombing was pretty insensitive. It honestly offended me since I’m part Japanese myself, though none of my relatives were victim to those bombings. Racial jokes in general like the Jamaica joke are also not needed. Other than that, I thought part one was okay.

    • Yeah, the Hiroshima joke was bound to fail. It was initially a setup for some payoff way, way down the line that never came to fruition. It’s pretty embarrassing. That won’t be in the redone part one at all.

    This was probably one of the funniest videos of yours.

    • Why thank you! I was a tad worried it would be too over-the-top.

    You know, regarding that zip pity-do-dah hobo, I’m suddenly having this awful image in my head. Imagine if Korra was about a white savior set at the turn of the century who has to confront a racist society by crushing the scary opposition. She meets the hobo who is a happy black man who has no problem with the inequality of New York City and just goes about living like a bum and singing like he was in Song of the South. Hell, he could be an Uncle Remus figure. Then the white savior gets caught up in a rally by minorities listing their grievances against white attacks. The government is all-white, and Asami and Hiroshi could just be rich blacks who were more privileged than the average person like them. All the minorities would be treated as monster who would attack little children, and thus must be taken down and dropped entirely from the story in favor of some tacky fantasy BS. You know what, Korra set in our world is basically the story of Bioshock Infinite, and considering how that game is trotted out as an example of video games as “high art”…

    I noticed that you’re actively trying to discourage people from watching Part 1 on YouTube. Honestly, if you think it’s that bad I would recommend you pull it from the channel. It’s better that people be left wondering “what happened to the first part?” than that they get the wrong impression about the series as a whole.

    If you are going to redo the first part, I would second rosemon. The first thing I’d urge you to look into is some of the more… uncomfortable humor. There are a fair few “Dude, not funny” bits in there that should be worked on.

    • That’s a good idea. I’ll do that when I upload the next segment. And yes, the humor in that part is atrocious.

      I suppose making such a lousy video was a necessary step in learning just how to do these video reviews effectively, but it’s really bringing the rest of the series down.

        Yeah, maybe just add a notation in the second video that notes the first being down for “maintenance”.

        It’s always good to see someone who can take criticism well. There are a lot of YouTubers (as well as… other… content creators who shall not be named) that throw a fit at the mildest criticism.
