Not bad, but the show usually starts strong.


They can redeem themselves this season, if they keep a steady pace and don't rush the last couple episodes. But I doubt they'll do anything different than the last two seasons.

As for the dull voice acting, it was so noticeable as the group was visiting the new Air Benders, I thought it was almost on purpose. Once they met Napoleon Dynamite, I figured it had to be on purpose.

Is it scheduled to be weekly at 0700pm, or just for the premier? The article doesn't really say anything about that.

0800pm-1000pm is the graveyard, for the record.

7pm for the premiere. Then 8 pm for the season.

(Article says that. Rest of season starts up after the 4th with the 8 pm time slot)

The article already linked (and you commented on) mentioned both the standard time slot and the fact that the series would premiere, then take a week off, then start up in it's normal time slot after the 4th.

Quote:
Yes, The Legend of Korra Book Three: Change will debut on Friday, June 27th at 7pm on Nickelodeon. You’ll get a ton of Korra that night, as the first two episodes of Book Three air from 7pm-8pm ET/PT, followed by a special bonus presentation of the third episode of Book Three, “The Earth Queen", at 8pm.*

There will then be a break for the Fourth of July holiday, before new episodes resume in the show’s regular timeslot, Fridays at 8pm, beginning July 11th.

You can't air new episodes on the evening of the 4th of July. That's just silly.

Looks like they are making up for it by airing an hour each Friday now. Two episodes next week too.

They are going to be done with the season quickly.

Still no real answers about who the "Fantastic Four" really are. Toph has a second kid, by a different father, and she's still alive. I think she was the youngest of the group, so it is no surprise. I was waiting for Combustion Girl (or is it Sparky Sparky Boom Girl? Too bad Sokka is not here to tell us) to call Zuko "Uncle" or something. I'm still expecting to see some Azula offspring. (Azula's voice actress is Ming-Hua, the armless water bender, this time around.)

Suyin is too perfect to not be the instigator of the fight between the Toph Sisters.

I started reading the promise and the search the other day finally. Only have part 3 if the search left. I wish I had read these sooner. They are good stories. I think I need to buy part three of the search still. It wasn't on sale for 99 cents a while ago with the rest for some reason so I did not grab it.

Edit:
WTH... I use Kindle for the iPhone and apparently that isn't supported by the Search Part 3... Amazon won't let me buy it.

Edit2:
After a lengthy discussion with Amazon support apparently the fact that I was able to read The Promise 1-3 and the Search 1-2 is a bug and I shouldn't have been able to do it. So not being able to read the Search 3 is working as intended, but they are "working with their content publishers" to ensure that they are available on all devices and apps. From my point of view is seems pretty obvious that it's a bug on the Search Part 3. The "Availability" listings are identical for the 6 other than the Search 3 doesn't list the PC based readers. "Kindle for iPad" should just mean "Kindle for iOS". Nothing lists "Kindle for iPhone". And the Rift Part 1 is not available, but the Rift Part 2 is... go figure. Obviously some iOS/iPad/iPhone flagging bug.

I was pretty impressed that Bosco lived so long, considering the average bear's lifespan. Earth Queen confirmed for Final Boss.

Spooky voice death slooooooooot~ Ooooooo~

Maybe the future seasons, assuming it gets beyond season 4, won't have the same pacing problems the other two seasons had.

So we digital now? Anyone got anything about that?

Good fight scene. That magmabending is so BS but looks cool. Varrik continues to be hilarious. I was enjoying Mako doing detective but that got ruined when Varrik pretty much spoonfed it to the "at home audience." They could have skipped that all together. Kind of immediately saw through Mr. Truthseer's lie myself, but it was better sans Varrik. It was kind of ridiculously predictable. Going on that, I'm going with that Suyin is the main bad guy of the arc. Truthseer doesn't seem like a mastermind. The going theory is that the four Super Saiyans Benders were all part of the circus that Suyin was with earlier in her life. The motive is still up in the air, but it probably has something to do with world order.

You'd think they could throw it on the NickToons channel. That's where the first three seasons of the first series airs non stop. About two hours each day,

In case you forgot, Episode 9 - The Stakeout

They poked fun at Pai Sho, and busted out the rule book. Throughout the first series the game always struck me as a Go like game, where they took turns placing tiles. I never followed it much beyond what little was shown in the series. In this episode it seemed to be played like Checkers. The rule book seemed to make fun of this.

Some revelations were made but I can't tell if what Zaheer said can be treated as the truth, or if he was just lying to keep it interesting for Korra so she'd stay in the spirit world long enough to be captured.

Eh, they decided instead of making rules for Pai Sho that they or a future writing staff might forget, they'd just nip it in the bud and say "whatever we do with it is right" and moved on. Kind of lazy, though understandable. Some fans are pretty obsessive when it comes to these little errors.

My money is on Suyin being the ringleader. The going theory is that the four captured Red Lotus members were all part of the circus she joined when she was banished by Toph. Like I said earlier, she's way too perfect. She's also the one that pretty much separated Korra from Lin, and that Truthy McLieDetector guy doesn't seem at all competent enough to have done anything on his own.

And yeah, I did forget. Thanks for the link.

The last three episodes. 11 from last week, and a two part finale.

Book 3, Episode 11: The Ultimatum
Book 3, Episode 12 / 13: Enter the Void / Venom of the Red Lotus

Ended well enough. I think this book had a more steady pace than the other two. The whole moving to online thing mid way seemed to interrupt the flow a bit though. But it's not bad, at least the site works well.

Looks like they'll be doing a 4th book. Odd that they introduced the Metal Bending Captain and then didn't seem to do much beyond make it seem ominous. Jinora saved the day (again) and got her tattoos. Apparently nothing came of the Suyin ideas. Unless the next book continues that, with the Metal Bending Captain, Kuvira.

Sparky Sparky Boom Girl got her head blowed up. Armless Waterbender got electrofied. And Lava-Boy got buried in molten rock (his own doing, that one).

I admit, I keep forgetting, so I marathoned the last three episodes.

It certainly was better paced overall, unlike the last few books. The fights were really great, but a few spots here and there kind of annoyed me. I like the whole martial arts = bending aspect, so the times where Korra was bound and Drop Kick Bending was a bit grating for me. Oh, and speaking of bound, I get they can't metalbend platinum, but why didn't she earthbend the areas where the chains were connected to the ground and ceiling? I felt like screaming at the screen that whole time. Bolin definitely became a badass, and Jinora definitely deserved her tattoos, though the bald look makes her look like Aang. Not sure how I feel about that. For someone that is blocked from the Avatar Line, Korra ended up exactly like Aang at the end there, injured and in jeopardy of ending the whole Avatar thing all together. I still don't trust Suyin, but I'm less inclined to believe she was working with Zahir considering the whole Sparky Sparky Boomette being basically decapitated. Oh, and J Jonah Airbender is a pretty kickass air bender, holding his own for pretty much his whole fight. Flying was kind of meh. Wanted more out of air bending. Final thought was that I kind of expected the Earth Queen to try to eat Korra, considering Bosko, but she got what she had coming to her.

Most definitely the better of the books thus far, which isn't really saying much all things considered.

And finally, Earth Bending is OP as AsteriskAsteriskAsteriskAsterisk. Also still my favorite.

That was pretty quick. Especially considering the time it took between book two and three. I imagine if there is a next series we'll be waiting quite a while for it.
