Let’s Talk About Legend Of Korra Book 3: Change Finale

Legend of Korra’s two-part finale, “Enter the Void” and “Venom of the Red Lotus” is now online. WOW. That’s a finale. What did you think? Here’s my review over at Screencrush. I found the final beats to be hopeful. Others may interpret differently. That’s exciting! Throw down your reactions/insight/theories in the comments or reblogs. Lots to talk about here. We’ll be back with a new episode Sunday.

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.

"Queen of Future Industries" by Finer

This is a song Stacy wrote as a fan song for herself for Avatar: The Legend of Korra, but we loved it so much, we play it at all our shows now. We still love Mako and Korra, but Asami is mysteriously epic.”

Follow the band on Twitter HERE.

Thanks for letting us know about it!

I’m sorry, Season 2 is so far gone. We’re already doing Season 3 now so everything’s so muddled.

- Seychelle Gabriel, Asami, to IGN at WonderCon

Well, we knew Book 3 was coming, but - GOOD NEWS - they seem to be going non-stop. Which means we might get to go through Korra fully before we have children!

Voices are on Book 3, scoring is half-to-3/4 the way through Book 2 and a handful of episodes are in color correct. Fall looks pretty close.

Legend of Korra: The Most Dramatic Show on TV Is a Nickelodeon Cartoon

Finally decided to get some broad stroke thoughts down on Book 1: Air over at my homebase of Hollywood.com! I’m not joking with that headline and I’m guessing you might feel the same.
