    Great news, although I'm really not thrilled about books not being seasons. Especially if there's going to be a big wait between books. That's a nitpick though.

    I legitimately don't understand why you're against it continuing if you thought the ending sucked but the rest was great. Wouldn't that entail you to want another book/season so that they can add the character development, and produce a story that has a satisfying beginning, middle, & end? I don't know, maybe that's just me.

    Now you have the chance to see those questions answered.


    I think it was a mistake to tell this story as a mini-series actually. The story with Amon and bending reveloution was too big to be told in 12 episodes and trying to fit things like a love triangle, character development for characters, Tarrlock's power play etc. I felt the story should have been simplier or more basic for 12 episodes. I only wish Nick ordered more episodes, while the crew was still in the planning stages. The Amon story would have been richer if there was more episodes to it to unfold. A lot of the problems you had with the finale a number of people have and they probably would not have been there if the first book was longer even by a 5 or 6 episodes.


    I think thewritersare stronger in writing a long story as oppose to a short one. I don't think the next book is going to be bad, so long as they have an overrall story and direction in mind.

    Well, now that there are 4 books total I think they can plan out everything properly and see what direction they want the show to go.

    David Faustino (the voice actor for Mako) and another voice actor for the show have said that it should premiere in April. It's not confirmed though.

    Maybe we'll find out who Lin's father is; or maybe Iroh's Grandmother. It'd also be nice if we found out how the dead Gaang members died.

    There are so many things wrong in that sentence. At least the Search Part 1 comes out tomorrow.

    Being trapped in the iceberg for 100 years affected his health causing him to die younger then he normally would have.



    According to details from Momocon (how fitting), Book 2 should start this fall, a new sub-bending technique of Airbending, and Lin's father will be revealed.



    Honestly people, you need to settle down. The reason this show and The Last Aribender have been so great and achieved what they have is because every episode has a lot of work put into it. Far more than most animated shows. It takes time to make great work.

    Korra break isn' much for me. I generally wait 2-3 years for a new season of the Venture Brothers. I understand people being impaitent or at least want a possible air date, while waiting.

    Pretty sure this hiatus is gonna be longer. Its already been 10 months since it last aired, the season 3 haitus was only 9 months. It'll be even longer if its really gonna be in the fall. I'm willing to wait in order to have the highest quality episodes, I just wish they'd give us a real air date already.
