BOOK 3 MOVING TO DIGITAL RELEASE!

KORRA DETAILS.

I mean, I see all the !s you’re using. They’re not making me feel better.

Hey Korra Nation! Phew. Some of you may have heard versions of this news elsewhere, but here’s the official word. After this Friday’s on-air premiere of Episode 8 “The Terror Within” at 8/7c, all remaining Book 3 episodes will move to a digital rollout. That means two things: 1) Korra is NOT…

the-life-of-a-geek94 said: Because Nick has pulled the last 5 episodes of Legend of Korra for the time being and Bryan Konietzko posted on his tumblr that Legend of Korra is moving to digital, what will happen with this podcast?

Until all the details come out at SDCC this weekend, we don’t really know what the schedule-bending and "move to digital" really mean for the show. But it’s hard to imagine a world where there’s more Korra and not more Republic City Dispatch to follow. There’s a chance they’ll dump the remaining episodes on Nick.com or Amazon Prime. If so, we’ll tackle it accordingly, divided in a way that makes sense to the narrative and to you guys, the listeners. Unfortunately, neither Dave, Devindra, Joanna or Patches are at Comic-Con this year, so we’ll be relying on reporting from inside the room for precise details (which, honestly, will be just as informative and save us a few bucks). I’m sure this announcement gets people down, but remember: We’re getting more Korra. One way or another, Bryke’s show will hit our eyes and blow our minds. The future is murky, but not dour. We’ll address everything that happens

Turns out Emmy Voters Don’t Watch Korra

Since The Legend of Korra is on in primetime, Book 2 was eligible for two Emmy Awards: Animated Program and Character Voice-Over Performance. Unfortunately, the show didn’t garner any nominations — which makes you wonder if anyone voting actually watches The Legend of Korra (short answer: probably not). Archer, Bob’s Burgers, Futurama, South Park, and Nick’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are fine shows. Great shows (I’m not the biggest fan of this current incarnation of TMNT). But animation means two things to the common voter: A half hour comedy like The Simpsons or a kid’s show. TMNT brand awareness probably has something to do with its inclusion. Legend of Korra isn’t an easy show to label or describe with one-line. It’s too hard to vote for.

As for the voice-over noms… c’mon Television Academy! Get it together! Janet Varney! J.K. Simmons! Steven Yeun as Wan! Seth MacFarlane, Seth Green, and Harry Shearer do fine jobs on their respective shows, but they’re examples of voters choosing with a rubber stamp. Veterans. Beyond the name talent of Korra, there are a hundred voiceover artists more deserving of these spots (though many of them would fall into the Daytime Emmy pool). Show’em some love, Academy. 

Who would you hand out Emmys to this year? Who gave the best Korra performance in Book 2? What’s the best episode writing and/or directing wise? We might has well hold our own ceremony right here.
