For most people, recaps are day-after reading. The author files their story, people reflect on the episode for a morning, and that’s that. Next!
But I’m quite proud of the criticism I wrote for Vulture during The Legend of Korra's second season. It's a show packed with provocative themes and animated nuance. Compared to Book 1, it was ambitious and a little messy. There was tons to talk about week-to-week. When it worked and even when it didn’t, I was thrilled to spotlight the passion poured into each episode. Thought it made sense to share these again.
I’ll be writing about Book 3 at Screencrush.com. Look at for posts going up after new episodes air on Friday.
KORRA GAME WILL HAVE PRO BENDING…but only for CPU and you.
From the first HANDS ON report from the game (CLICK!):
“Lastly, Platinum is making a competitive arena mode, where you can take on other benders in 3 vs. 3 matches. Although this seems like an opportunity for online multiplayer, the game is only single-player, and these matches are fought against computer-controlled characters.”
Otherwise, it sounds really interesting from a hack-n-slash combo perspective. And it looks great.
Anonymous said: So here's a question. In the free comic day Avatar comic surrounding what Mai has been up to, we meet Fire Nation Separatists who plan on staging a coup. Do you think it is possible that the Rift might deal between the Rift between those loyal to Zuko and those trying to kill him? Will there be another comic about that? Also do you think it was such a good idea for Korra to release ALL of the spirits considering that we know about malicious characters such as Koh the Face Stealer?
This is an oldie question but goodie question.
I think you’re totally right, and I think The Rift will provide more background on Zuko just as he’s entering Book 3 proper. Just like The Promise introduced the idea of the Republic and The Search brought back a heavy spirit presence.

It’s been tough for me because I personally don’t believe in the concept of a “spoiler,” so I know I’m going to break and read descriptions of the leaks before Friday.
However, I also work for Viacom and TV scheduling is a harsh mistress I dance with a lot. I can’t speak for whomever is doing the dubs for Team Korra, but I can’t imagine how soul-crushing it must have been for the core team to see the middle part of a key season leak out. In solidarity with the creatives, I don’t want to torrent or download anything stolen.
And, yes, there’s a difference between a leak and theft and this WAS THEFT.
Anyway. My feelings get even more complicated when I consider that I don’t know what the best form of positive re-enforcement is knowing that Book Four is already getting completed and that’s all we’ve been promised in the Korra story.
So wouldn’t anything I do to give Nick ratings ultimately be more valuable to Nick, a company I don’t have complete faith in over Team Avatar whom I trust completely?
At this point, if Korra’s core creatives just opened up a PayPal Tip Jar, I’d kick them a few bucks there.
The good news is this Friday we catch up to the first of the leaked episodes, so in the future we’ll barely remember this frustrating time period.

Or specifically HERE.
Official streams means someone is watching the statistics, so stream away!
