The Legend of Korra Book 4 continues to air online on Fridays! Episodes 2 and 3 continued their look into the struggle over Earth Kingdom leadership, as well as Korra’s struggle to recover after the events of Book 3. Hit the jump for my recap and thoughts!
Wow, is it really that time already? The premiere of The Legend of Korra‘s “Book 4: Balance” aired on Friday, just a few short weeks after Book 3 wrapped up. After the end of Book 3, it’s no surprise that Book 4 started out with a decidedly dark tone. Hit the jump for a quick recap and my comments, then feel free to add your own thoughts to the discussion below!
Book 3 finished off on such an emotional rollercoaster that it has taken me a few days to figure out what to say about it. Even now that some time has passed, I’m still at a loss for words. My recap and thoughts can be found after the jump…
Book 3 is flying by, and we’re fast approaching the end — the two-part season finale will air on Friday, August 22nd! My recap and thoughts on episodes 3.10 and 3.11 are after the jump.
The Legend of Korra has a habit of dropping truth bombs halfway through a season, and given the not-so-surprising traitor reveal in episode 8, I expected we’d be seeing more twists right about now. I wasn’t disappointed. What was surprising was the way the truths were revealed — for the first time, Korra has a chance to sit down with the villain and ask him his goals, and he actively answers her questions not in a stereotypically maniacal monologuing kind of way, not in a bid to convince her to switch allegiances, but as a strategic tactic to buy himself time. I like this Zaheer fellow.
The episode summary and more of my thoughts are after the jump. Beware of spoilers! This episode had some big reveals.
“Change” has turned out to be an apt name for this season. At Comic-Con, Nick announced that the show would be pulled from the network after episode 3.08; the remainder of the series will be airing on various digital sources, including Nickelodeon.com, at a weekly cadence on Fridays at 12:00 PM EST.
I’ll ramble about this move in a bit, but first, it’s time for an episode recap and a few theories! Continue reading “The Legend of Korra – Episode 3.08 and Other News”
Book 3 continued this week with the second half of the Zaofu arc, and a filler episode set in the Northern Air Temple. While these two episodes didn’t dazzle me as much as the previous five, they were still full of action, comedy, character development and touching moments. My recap and thoughts are after the jump!
The bizarre Book 3 schedule continues, with Nick choosing to air 2 episodes per week for the rest of the season’s run. Even stranger is their decision to pair even-odd episodes, with the series creators saying episode 4 was actually meant to be paired with 3 (and 5 with 6). That being said, these episodes were so good that I’m not going to complain.
And just what made these episodes so good? Hit the jump for my summary and thoughts!
I am delighted to be in a position to write this post, as I didn’t expect Book 3: Change would air for several more months. Given Nickelodeon’s long-standing silence on Book 3, the timing of the Book 2 Blu-ray release, and the Fall release of the upcoming game, it looks as if Nickelodeon was setting up Book 3 for a late summer or early fall release. When MundoNick accidentally leaked episodes 3-6 of Book 3 couple weeks back, Nickelodeon surprised us all — they reacted by releasing the season early, starting with a three-episode premier on June 27. There wasn’t even enough time to build up hype: a leak, an announcement, then BOOM! Three episodes.
I was wary. While Book 2 won me over by the end, it suffered from numerous flaws I discussed in last year’s recaps. Well, I’m pleased to say that Book 3 is off to an extremely strong start. My recap and thoughts are below — spoilers ahead!
Originally, only episodes 11 & 12 were slated to air this week, but in a surprise move, the Korra team released the season finale, episode 13 & 14, online at midnight on Friday. It was a night of emotions, drama and unexpected twists. Read on for my recap and final thoughts. Spoilers ahead! Continue reading “The Legend of Korra: Season Finale Recap & Thoughts”
Chapter 10 of Book 2 of The Legend of Korra aired on Friday, and it was a blend of stunning animation, adventure, nostalgic references, and heavy drama. Read on for my recap, thoughts and speculation. Spoilers ahead!
After a two-week break, the ninth episode of Book Two of The Legend of Korra, “The Guide,” aired on Friday. My weekly recap, thoughts & speculation are below the jump! Beware of spoilers…
Studio Mir returned this week for a special 2-part episode of The Legend of Korra, and what a treat! The animation was gorgeous, the style was beautiful, and the story itself was fun and engaging. If you only watch two episodes this season, make it these two. My recap, thoughts and speculation are below the jump.
It’s that time of the week again! Episode 2.06 of The Legend of Korra, The Sting, aired yesterday at its new time of 8:30 pm EST. Last week, I spoke about some of my frustrations with this season so far, and I’m pleased to say that even though some of those frustrations are still there, I really enjoyed this episode.
