After a short hiatus, Korra is back! We timeskip now! We rejoin our heroes after a 3 year jump ahead. The airbenders now have badass supersuits, Mako has become dorkier than ever, all the airbabies have hair, dogs living with cats, babies havin' babies! What other changes await us?!
Check it out at 12 Noon EST Friday 10/3 on Nick.com (free with ads), the Nick mobile App (free with ads). The only other confirmed carrier of Book 4 thus far is Amazon Video. Night Owls keep an eye out on Amazon around 4AM EST in case they have the same access to the show as they had in Book 3.
Err... pretty sure the overt fascist imagery they're going for with Kuvira (complete with her troops having helmets partially modelled on WW2 German helmets, and an emphasis on establishing order) I think that her being "ambiguously" villainous might be a touch sketchy. What with her methods of getting people to join her territories and all.
Makes sense though, considering they're already covered other early twentieth century political agendas (Amon: communism, Korra's uncle: theocracy... before he went nuts, and Zaheer: anarcho-primativism), it kind of makes sense that they go this route.
Even if it's likely that Kuvira will be less Nazis-influenced, but maybe more Imperial Japan/Chiang Kai-shek inspired.
>>118142 I don't know what is with the LOK fandom but why do they always sound so... bitter about the antagonist being the antagonist? I keep hearing "I WANT A VILLAIN WHO HAS A POINT" and nearly ALL of them have and their actions have had some effect that carry onto the next book. They're just bad people. Bad people can have seemingly good goals.
Huh, and to think people were loudly yelling about wanting Korra to be "humbled" in the first season.
Those people were more than a smidge creepy, in my opinion. Like the dudes who were so into Zutara they were down with the idea of all Katara and Aang's actually being fathered by Zuko, as evidently a decades-long affair (not to mention questionable genetics) was apparently preferable to Kataang happening.
I prefer villains who are morally grey, rather than being a character who is simply designed to be the villain and has no other traits.
Regarding Kuvira they're making it so obvious that she's a villain that if it's ever revealed that she's using the bandits to force states to unify with the Earth Kingdom no one is going to be surprised because this was obvious from the start. That's why no one was surprised when Unalaq was a villain because it was so obvious from the way he acted and was portrayed.
If Kuvira is the main villain then she'll be less interesting that Amon, Unalaq, and Zaheer because part of their appeal was trying to figure out why they were trying to remove bending, open the spirit portals, or capture the Avatar. With Kuvira we already know that she's trying to reunite the Earth Kingdom so we already know what her motives are.
>>118174 Unlikely but I hope the Satsuki comparisons run a little deeper and Kuvira might turn out to be a reluctant ally of Korra's, at least for a while, since she's coming off as pretty Obviously Evil so early.
Hi guys. I'm trying to avoid reading this thread so I can dodge spoilers, but does anyone have any episode rips for download? I can't watch them on Nick's site. Also, does anyone know if Book 4 will air on TV or is Dickelodeon still being retarded?
