So think it's fitting to discuss this show
For one thing I think the show is great hilarious, fun, with awesome action scenes, but I
have a few problems.
For one the biggest issue is that the show is paced terribly! They are rushing all of the
major distressing plots to quickly, so when the filler comes along (if it comes along) the
audience will be in distress over the looming threat of Amon.
Secondly, I hate love triangles, sooooo much, and this show is no exception. The love
triangle makes me hate the characters (except poor Bo Lin I think he is the only good
one). Mako is a whinny douche, and I never liked him to begin with, but when he gets
jealous of how Bo Lin hangs out with Korra (the basic principle that he wants what he
can't have) it just cemented that he is a terrible person. Then Korra who doesn't mean to
Bo Lin still leads him on way to much then breaks his poor heart.
The show is good, but in comparison to the original it no where near has as good of
writing or pacing as the original, but you have to remember that the original was pretty
much perfect as a show. Mixing drama, action, and comedy perfectly with amazing pacing and
characters that grew and you became attached to by the end of the series.
To be honest I love it. I do agree they are rushing it a bit but it's great. I can tell
they tried making it more modern so the audience can connect with it more because in
Avatar it was set in such an early time. Plus, the love triangle is an expected and
anticipated addition to any modern show. Much to my dismay the world is moving on and
advancing so placing some love and relationship things in shows can attract more young
people.. I like it.
How is it more modern? Yes I understand that they world Avatar is taking place in is
going through an industrial revolution and is advancing, but it is by no means modern, and
how is that an excuse for a love triangle! Most modern shows don't have love triangles and
the crappy ones that do are not shows Avatar should be taking after. Also love and
relationships does not attract anyone in the target audience for Avatar who are small
boys. When I first started watching Avatar I couldn't of cared less about the romantic
relationship between Aang and Katara, but I did start to enjoy it as their relationship
grew in a very natural way. Korra and Mako are just douches who can't make a decision.
Also I think the show is trying to hard to mimic the original in some ways, like how Paboo
and Naga interact is trying to strike gold twice like they did with Appa and Momo.
Personally I hate how everything is modernized. Before using lighting was an art, and now
its naturally used for power plants. Then there all of these non benders that no chi
blocking like Ty Lee, and thats way too over kill. Like a whole legion of them is just
plain unfair when just ty lee was able to basically neutralize everyone -___-
Yes, I have to agree that the Paboo and Naga thing is a biiiittt too similar but it's a
sequel. Some things are going to descend from the original. And that includes the animals
and the love triangle. (And yes there were some love triangle in the original avatar)
Another thing with the modernization is that yes, in the original it was nice and a good
change to have a show that wasn't similar to the society we have now. But since this is
now the sequal there will HAVE to be some major changes too. Especially in sequals. There
has to be changes and this is it. Now the challenge for the audience is can we accept
these changes and like the show for the qualities it has and accept it for the qualities
it doesn't have and try something new or are we going to be just plain stubborn and not
watch it and complain we don't like it just because it isn't exactly the way we want
There was no love triangle! Zuko and Katara never had feelings for each other it was just
over hyped by fans in that one scene! They even made fun of it in the Ember Island Players
episode. That is not a love triangle.
Also I like the change of setting they are trying to make it like Hong Kong in the roaring
20s which is really cool
What!! Okay, there was no other implication of that love triangle I admit. But there was
that episode where Aang, Katara, and the gang went to the fire kingdom and watched
themselves in a play. Zuko and Katara in the play were all lovey dovey. Why would the
editors put that in if there was NO LOVE TRIANGLE WHAT SO EVER?? Hmm?
