  • Quite sub-par when compared to A:TLAB

    Overall the show ranged from *sigh* and 'meh' to 'okay' but the last season was particularly not good.

    I found the lack of meaningful character development and the teen soap elements extremely taxing.



    As for the surprise ending:

    It's like having a black Superman -the right actor, the right script and it could be awesome but if it's an okay actor and a shitty script -it simply becomes a travesty where race was a primary driving factor.



    Had they played out Korra's and Asami's lesbianism subtly and tentatively from the beginning and then have it naturally progress -it would have been pretty cool but instead it is just slapped on in the last season to make a futile point.

    It is like stringing a bunch of Van Goghs together and spray painting an anti child porn message on them. The people against child porn are still against child porn, the people involved with child porn are not going stop because some randoms defiled some master pieces of art.



    "I'm not going to discriminate based on sexual orientation because Avatar Korra was a lesbo" -said no one ever.

    So in the end TLOK people have not changed the minds of bigots and done nothing but ruin the art/entertainment media that I was trying to enjoy. . .Thanks guys -I'm sure the first homosexual president will give a shoutout to 'Legend of Korra' in his/her inaugural dress.
