It Is An Abomination



At the rate I'm going, I should re-name this blog "I Hate Korra".

  1. "Korra" the show, or Korra the character? Or both?

    1. I don't hate either yet. I'm disappointed in the show and I extremely dislike Korra's character, but "hate" is too strong for this. I'm not looking forward to this Friday's episode, but I am interested in the two-parter that follows it because that might seal the deal about the show and character's future for me.

    2. I'm actually I would happily, gleefully push the cancel button on “Legend of Korra” especially since Mike and Bryan went full George Lucas on us, and got rid of Aaron Ehasz who steered the ship for “Avatar: The Last Airbender.” To top it all off, Nickelodeon renewed the show for three more seasons at once and dropped $60 million into that, and we are getting shittier animation, very shitty writing and the show is tanking in the ratings. And good lord, where did Mike and Bryan spend that money? Hookers and blow? It certainly wasn’t on the show! None of my favorite shows ever received this kind of corporate support. And, this show doesn’t even have a Coulson holding it up, Korra herself is horrible. Kill it, Nick. Kill it.rooting for its cancellation.

    3. They did what to Aaron Ehaz?

      I don't mind Korra's characterization as I'm willing to stay on board to see where this is going. If she regresses for the third season. Then I can start worrying.

      That makes it sound like you're jealous. Or that you're just disappointed that the show's not making good use of the support it has.

      "And, this show doesn’t even have a Coulson holding it up,"

      Isn't that was Tenzin is for?

      "Korra herself is horrible."

      She is now, but it's never too late to change. Last season I thought she was wonderful up until the very end. I hope that in this season where she's started out horrible, she ends it a much better character and person.

      "They did what to Aaron Ehasz?"

      I'm not sure they got rid of him. They just didn't ask him to come back for "Korra." And seeing as Ahasz put the most heart into the original show, and was responsible for several great story and character decisions (such as Toph's gender!), it was stupid of them not to call him back on for this.

      I see no reason to deny my feelings. Of course I'm jealous... jealous that the shows I love get murdered by executives while this piece of hack shit is getting the corporate support to keep getting shoved at us... all while it fails creatively and commercially.

      Fuck "Legend of Korra" and everyone involved.

      "She is now, but it's never too late to change."

      I don't give a shit if she does or not at this point.

      "hey just didn't ask him to come back for "Korra." And seeing as Ahasz put the most heart into the original show, and was responsible for several great story and character decisions (such as Toph's gender!), it was stupid of them not to call him back on for this."

      Yes. Mike and Bryan are both hacks. Fuck them.

      I argue Bryan Fuller knows how you feel.

    7. *googles Bryan Fuller*

      I have told you time and again I have no interest in "Hannibal". STOP IT!

    8. Movie Brat, I told you to quit with the "Hannibal" stuff. Greg has no interest, Anthony Hopkins is the only Hannibal to him, tenacity will get you nowhere here.

      "I see no reason to deny my feelings. Of course I'm jealous... jealous that the shows I love get murdered by executives while this piece of hack shit is getting the corporate support to keep getting shoved at us... all while it fails creatively and commercially."

      Well...thanks for being honest.

      "Fuck "Legend of Korra" and everyone involved."

      Everyone? Even the voice actors, animators, directors, and musical composers who worked their hardest with what they had? That's really harsh.

      "Yes. Mike and Bryan are both hacks. Fuck them."

      That's way more appropriate. Direct your hate at the ones responsible.

      Okay, not them.

  2. You have won the Internet today, as far as I'm concerned.
