one big thing i’m annoyed about with Korra
(spoilers under the cut)
i agree with this completely!!
but they did set it up from the very beginning that korra and mako were gonna be a thing
i’d much rather prefer bolin and korra because it actually made sense and we wouldn’t have to see the horrendous, unnecessary downfall that was mako and asami, and then after that happened asami and bolin were thrown back behind the scenes while mako and korra stood up front because everything had to be about them for some reason which was really unfair
i don’t really know why that had to happen but hopefully the show will be redeemed in season two with some more much needed character development between the four of them
How You Can Have a Bunch of Great Ideas but Still Fuck Up Real Bad: A Korra Essay
Hahahaha ever since Saturday the Korra finale seems to make me angrier and angrier. As a storyteller and as a fan of solid storytelling, it is an atrocious mess! I stand by the creators are amazing directors, amazing concept artists, amazing producers, but wow are they terrible writers. They have absolutely no understanding of dramatic convention, and so the first season of The Legend of Korra suffered greatly from terrible execution, and the core ideas were so good it should’ve been a gamechanger. It should’ve been the most brilliant thing on television and instead we were given a 12-week narrative case of blue balls.
Disclaimer: if you enjoyed/love/fanatic about Korra, by all means continue to do so! I enjoyed a lot about Korra. In fact that is why I am so frustrated. But that aside, this is meant as a critique and a dissection and as such you can take it or you can leave it. Nothing I have to say will change the show, nor will anything I have to say will have any effect on what season 2 will bring. Mostly I have been ranting about it to everyone on a daily basis since Saturday and this is my way to finally just. get. it. all. out. So this is me shouting into the ether for my own cathartic glee.
