Hahahaha ever since Saturday the Korra finale seems to make me angrier and angrier. As a storyteller and as a fan of solid storytelling, it is an atrocious mess! I stand by the creators are amazing directors, amazing concept artists, amazing producers, but wow are they terrible writers. They have absolutely no understanding of dramatic convention, and so the first season of The Legend of Korra suffered greatly from terrible execution, and the core ideas were so good it should’ve been a gamechanger. It should’ve been the most brilliant thing on television and instead we were given a 12-week narrative case of blue balls.
Disclaimer: if you enjoyed/love/fanatic about Korra, by all means continue to do so! I enjoyed a lot about Korra. In fact that is why I am so frustrated. But that aside, this is meant as a critique and a dissection and as such you can take it or you can leave it. Nothing I have to say will change the show, nor will anything I have to say will have any effect on what season 2 will bring. Mostly I have been ranting about it to everyone on a daily basis since Saturday and this is my way to finally just. get. it. all. out. So this is me shouting into the ether for my own cathartic glee.
befuddledpenguin: I REALLY HOPE IT DOESNT HPPENBUT ALL THOSE GLARES SHE'S MADE THROUGHOUT THE SHOW TELLS ME OTHERWISE TT___TT
I WILL NEVER FORGIVE THEM IF THEY DO IT.
Or at least if they make Asami evil JUST BECAUSE OF MAKO I will not accept it and most likely stop watching the show. Because I am really hoping that Asami will rise above it and not sink to becoming a villain for such a stupid reason. I like to think that she’s made of much stronger morals than that because of how she was able to stand up to her dad even though she loved and trusted him because she knew what he was doing was wrong.
So if she becomes a villain just to get back at Mako….
FORGET IT I’M LEAVING! >: O
(However if there is some better, darker, cooler reason for her leaving the group
Like she really was evil all along somehow wat that might be pretty cool)
