According to a Korean on 4chan in Book 4 Korra will hallucinate in ep 1, in ep 2 she will walk with metal bending, and in ep 3 Korra will be fine so the Red Lotus can attack her.

Also it will end with Korra and Mako getting together, also Asami will get with Bolin.

I think the official spelling is ZutarIan, or at least the most commonly used back in the lj/da days.

I'd like to see some sort of scifi fantasy series a la Xenogears and Blade (not Saga though, that setting was crap). Doesn't have to be Avatar necessarily, but most series I see trying that are too heavily biased towards one or the other rather than striking a balance.

Seeing as the thread on the "old" board is locked, FIRST FOR SHYAMALAN!

Was there anything in the movie adaptation you liked?
Was there anything in the movie adaptation you preferred?
M. Night has a script for the sequel completed, what do you think he has/had planned?
Do you think the failure of TLA played in Nick's decision to pursue more seasons of LoK rather than produce an animated version of the search for Ursa?
And finally, what WAS going on with those Earthbenders?

Though this fandom is oft divided, we are united in hatred.

Thor and the Kree Accusers.jpg
17381676
An army of "peacemakers" from the spirit world that have come to instill order in those that have escaped to cause havoc on the material plane. However, with the spiritual and physical maiming of the Avatar, they decide that it's high time they took over for the good of all as both spirits and humans seem incapable of taking care of themselves.

Spirit-Human relations are a big part of the book. Neither side is laudable as Spirits are usually full of themselves to the point of conceit while Humans can be casually cruel. Last half of the season is basically both camps trying to overcome their differences and find a way to defend themselves against this powerful army that would judge them all.

A thought occurs.

What if Amon and the Equalists had decided to set up shop in Ba Sing Sei first, instead of Republic City? There is clearly a more prominent divide between rich and poor there, in addition to an actively malicious government as opposed to a merely inept/indifferent one like RC has? Hell, even when things were at their worst under Tarrlok, he never disappeared people in the middle of the night for being inconvenient either. Additionally, the Dai Li wouldn't be much good against Amon's powers for the most part either, so there's less chance of him being abducted before the movement could get going...

...Though on the other hand it appears that a level of indoctrination is in place in the city, as shown by Mako and Bolin's grandma praising the Earth Queen's statue, so maybe RC was a better target as its comparitively liberal setting allowed him to set up shop easier? Like, I don't think that the Equalists could get away with protesters in Ba Sing Sei, for example.

What do you guys think?

It would depend upon how many non-benders were in high positions. If the Earth Queen and most of the ministers were non-benders then Amon wouldn't be able to claim that benders are oppressing non-benders.

Though Amon could claim that rich non-benders are using benders to oppress poor non-benders and try to get the poor to support him by weakening the Dai Li the Earth Queen would probably respond much more harshly than the RC Council.

Zaheer has a message to send to Korra, and it's up to the Bending Bros to make like the Postal Service and deliver. But what is his message?! We'll find out in this penultimate week of Book 3 releases. Finale next week!

Check it out at 12 Noon EST on Nick.com (free with ads), the Nick mobile App (free with ads), Hulu Plus, Amazon Video, Google Play, and Xbox ($1.99 per episode).

For those with Amazon Video, they in fact did release last week's episode at 4AM EST again. So if any night owl east coasters want the ep it should be up by then if they hold to this pattern. West Coasters check out Amazon at 1AM local time. I was able to watch the last two episodes in High Def on my Wii U at 4AM and was able to avoid online spoilers :3

Why does it have to be a this or that situation?

They really must not want the series to grow if they're going to alienate their audiences by choosing a preferred medium.

Combo of those that hated Korra because it violated their headcanon of post ATLA events, those that hated Korra because she was brown and/or a woman. Those that just hate action shows in general or because it wasn't the action show they wanted from Nick. Those that hated it because it ruined their headcanon for what they thought Amon would be. Cripes the amount of toxic bile especially just he plain hate for Korra herself. Like she was some personal affront to..something. Dunno how much of that leaked out to other places, but it just wasn't a nice place to talk about Korra.

But overall Nick needs to be slapped in the face for being so shit with their lack of a block for these shows. Did someone actually cut a insane deal that they had to air all those shows by themselves in a sea shows that don't fit!!! One episode of power rangers sandwiched between FOP and Spongebob, what madness is this? Nicktoons has a more coherent schedule, least they fucking air ATLA and its bookend by similar shows. I just don't understand.

Hell I'd gladly watch Nicktoons over Nickelodeon oh wait its not in any basic cable package (last I checked and that has been a few years since I gave a damn)

Just so much hate. And now with Nick clearly being neglectful of their shows and just in it if the show can keep it together long enough to make a profit for them but otherwise uncaring and won't lift a finger to help. It's frustrating that Korra may make it to the final curtain but the franchise is dead since Nick just couldn't be asked to help in any capacity to make it successful. Unless Platinum brings a miracle boon, least we'll get games then.

Hm, I'd say probably Asami down the line with input from a lot of other people. Considering the first proper computer was built by Alan Turing and the other Bletchley Park folk in the 1940s, I'd say it's conceivable that the first computers'll be appearing within the Korra cast's lifetime, what with their pseudo-1920s aethetic and all.

From what we've seen of Asami thus far, she seems to be more of an engineer than a mathematician, so chances are a Turing-ish character* would be needed to at least start things on the road to getting a programmable digital computer.

*Computer scientists/theorists existed prior to and at the same time as Turing, though his work codified and extrapolated from existing work in such a way that he was able to lead to the creation of Colossus, the world's first digital computer.

As much as I genuinely like Korra, I am kind of psyched for what comes afterwards, if they decide to franchise it Star Trek style (so Airbender is to TOS, Korra is to TNG etc.). Will they go to the next Avatar in the cycle, and move their anime-influence from Miyazaki to stuff like Akira and Ghost in the Shell? Or will they go to one of the Avatars prior to Aang got go for the more old school fantasy stuff, like Wan's adventures?

I'd kind of like to see the adventures of the older Gaang, like Toph's time as a policewoman, Aang's time as Ghandi-Lincoln etc.
