Legend of Korra: Kuvira’s Gambit

This is the last episode before the series finale… I think every soldier in Kuvira’s army has the same weird haircut and it sort of freaks me out. I’m not sure what the standard female haircut would be because Kuvira may be the only female in her army. Kuvira insists that the 2 of them will get married after the war is over, but I don’t notice an engagement ring on her finger. I think she loves Baatar Jr., but she loves winning more, and takes advantage of Baatar Jr.’s love for her. Maybe I’m just a helpless romantic, but I hope they really do get married after the war is over.

Legend of Korra: Beyond the Wilds

bolin back reactions

I think Napoleon Dynamite airbender was given this tour guide role because he failed at everything else. He has a very supportive and positive mother, but wow, the rest of the tour group consists of dimwits…most people in tour groups are pretty dull.  Even Napoleon Dynamite knew not to poke the dangerous vine with a stick.

Spirit vine logic, attack innocent people in Republic City instead of the guilty people cutting them down in the swamp. After re-watching the episode I noticed during Korra’s vine trance that sprit vines do attack mecha suits, but aren’t strong enough to stop them. Spirit vine logic 2, if you can’t beat the bully, just pick a weaker opponent.

Legend of Korra: Remembrances

evil phone guys
Here are better and more informed pieces about the clip show we got instead of an actual episode. I wish they could have received a bigger budget, but maybe I just wish they weren’t on Nick. This was the same team that came up with unique idea of the Ember Island players instead of a clip episode, I know they could have done something amazing. I can’t believe how incompetent Nick can be, but they continue to prove me wrong. I’ll keep this one short for readers, I didn’t hate this episode,
“It’s just a mover, don’t overthink it, it’s just a ride.” The rebel says this to a frustrated Bolin after Varrick’s story, and I think we can learn a lot from this line. Let’s not get mad too mad at Nick’s colossus mishandling of LoK, let’s just enjoy LoK while we can…and never watch anything on Nick again.

Legend of Korra: Reunion

naga hug

How can this episode be titled “Reunion” if Bolin doesn’t reunite with Korra as well? Blasphemy! Naga reuniting with Korra, even though he’s seen her more recently than most of the characters, was the cutest reunion we’ve gotten so far. It’s great to see Bumi again, but what was he doing all this time and why is he free now? Whatever he was doing he lost a ton of weight, good for him. I wonder if we’ll ever see any more characters get airbending tattoos. Together Opal and Jinora could make a tornado strong enough to stop the largest army in the world, just what does it take to get these tattoos?

Legend of Korra Review: Battle at Zaofu

surprise fail
Suyin’s surprise attack doesn’t work at all, surprising no one but Suyin herself. She believes most of the army is only in service to Kuvira out of fear, but I’m not so sure. Every soldier so far seems to love her, but all of her opponents seem to hate her. Say what you want about Kuvria, but she’s kind to the people who do what she wants. Also Suyin doesn’t seem like the best judge of character.

I would have loved to see a fair fight between Suyin and Kuvira, instead they’re disposed of off-screen. I guess we already had a fight between 2 metal benders last season, but I’m always a fan of more bending fights.

Legend of Korra Review: Enemy at the Gates

selfie varrick
I really hope that Baatar Sr. called for back up and didn’t listen to Suyin. I don’t care if she thinks they wont make it in time, call them! Look how gigantic that army is!

Varrick uses Zhu Li’s as his unit of measurement and names power outputs as Varricks, I’m honestly surprised the guy who invented movies didn’t name them after himself. If he invents the selfie then I’m calling he’ll name it Varrick.

The Coronation and The Calling Review

little ba sing sa

So I’m combing episode 3 and 4 into one post. The first episode is called the Coronation, which if you say out loud sounds like Korra Nation and makes me giggle. I think we can figure out what the plot will revolve around in that episode. The second episode is called the Calling.

Prince Wu talks about how magnificent his coronation will be while Tenzin confides to President Raiko about his uneasy feelings regarding Kuvira’s growing authority and rumors of dissenters being thrown into military camps. The foreshadowing doesn’t end there, President Raiko assures Tenzin that she’ll be stepping down from power tomorrow and Mako counts down the hours until he’s free from his body guarding days. What could possible go wrong?

The Legend of Korra Season 3

If you haven’t seen Avatar: The Last Airbender then go watch that right now, it’s amazing. Some people may be turned off because it’s a cartoon on Nickelodeon, especially older people, but it’s appealing to all ages and those people are wrong. A quick summary, the show creates a unique world were some people can “bend” one of the 4 elements – earth, wind, fire, and water. These people are broken up into different tribes, so say the people of North America could control fire and the people of Asia could control earth.  The show follows around 12 year old Aang, the avatar and only person that can bend all 4 elements who is trying to save the world from the evil fire lord. Honestly my description doesn’t do the show justice, but it really is one of the best animes I’ve ever seen and appeals to a wide audience. Do not watch the live action movie!!! Stick to the animated cartoon series, which is sadly unavailable on Netflix stream and YouTube has the character voices altered to avoid copyright infringement apparently, the voices are almost unbearable without audio adjustments. This is a purchase you won’t regret buying if it comes down to that, trust me.
