Don’t miss Book 3’s incredible conclusion this Friday at 12pm EST on nick.com!
Just a heads up for anyone who hasn’t been in the loop, this season of Legend of Korra is absolutely AMAZING. You can stream it all legally and commercial-free on nick.com with no signing up or anything, and I highly recommend you watch it there to support the creators and the network, and that ensure that we get a fourth season.
I’ll be the first to admit, because of my deep love for its predecessor series, the first two seasons of Korra never quite hit the mark for me. This is why I’m so impressed and in awe of how far they’ve come with the third. The animation is breathtaking, the writing is as witty and bright and deep as the original ATLA, and the story is more polished than anything I’ve seen before from the creators. This season finally feels like the true successor to Avatar the Last Airbender, if not because of the greater presence of the older generation, but because its breadth and scope is finally reminiscent of the vastness and incomparably epic quality of ATLA.
If you, like me, gave up on Korra early, when her story was mired in relationship woes and the story seemed to meander from the brink of one disaster to the next, please, PLEASE do yourself a favor and marathon this season. It really, truly, is that fucking good.
