    Re: Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra

    I'm really not as into season 3 as everyone else, mostly due to its story; It felt very disjointed and meager compared to the other seasons.

    Like, you have 4 major plotlines going on: Airbender...

    Having seen the latest episode, I'm feeling weirdly ambivalent towards this season. I started out really enjoying it, but now towards the end, I find myself losing interest. The pace just seems to...

    This has grated on me too. Aang basically became taken over by a wrathful, omniscient godlike force, with a new personality and distortet voice -you could really feel that this was the power of X...

    I'm not going to attempt dissecting the muddled avatar spirit lore again, but thats beside my point; trying to sell the big threat of S2 as "an age of violence and darkness will happen!" is kinda...

    Some nice nuggets of info in there; I particularly like the explanation for the season 1 Equalist fallout.

    It also neatly summarizes one of season 2's core problems: Handwaving vague nonsense.

    That...doesn't adress my point at all? And the forced spiritual possession doesn't alter the identity of the possesed individual. The body is hijacked and used, but used by the possesed spirit, not...

    Best things about this season were Tenzin and Varrick. Out of the final 4 episode 11 was pretty great, while the last 3 were just confusing as all hell...

    Varrick is love. Though I like Bolin and Asami, and is coming around to Mako, they're overshadowed whenver Varrick, Eska, Tenzins family and Lin are on screen.

    Varrick steals every scene he's in.
    I'm glad Team Tenzin sorted out their baggage quickly, but I'm still bummed that Aang raised 2/3 of his kids to have massive issues with him.

    True, there was signs of that earlier.

    I just didn't expect the source to be bad parenting by Aang. Watching TLA, I wouldn't have pegged him as "the kind of father who will favorize one child,...
