Avatar cartoons. Yup, that's what's been going on lately. I watched them ALL. Like, really quickly cus they were so good. So good
. People had been telling me for years, and I didn't listen. I was such a fool.
But now I am enlightened! And, obviously, full of thoughts. Mostly about Korra and expectations and the ways in which it is saddled with an impossible task.
First, though, Avatar: The Last Airbender! Because, wow, that show is a beautiful, beautiful thing. So many narratives that were just...more
than I thought they'd be at the start. More subtle, more thoughtful, more touching, more heartbreaking. ( The Last Airbender feelings spam! )
So of course, next, I wanted to watch Korra. Because all that but about a girl
? Yes. YES PLEASE.
And then, I was warned, it was not so great, and so I went in forearmed, and I think that helped me, because the first season was not so great. And the others have been...well parts have been wonderful and parts have been confusing, and that's what I have gathered you all here today to talk about! ( So Book One was sort of not great... )( Book Two was much better! )( And then we get to Book Three which was mostly lovely yet left me with some uncomfortable questions about the future... )
I need Book 4 like yesterday.
