Well you've essentially described the plot of season 1 and 2 in the vaguest terms possible. Just add a few werewolves and some fairly gross murders and you're spot on.

It's a guilty pleasure.

And by that I mean Tyler Hoechlin is attractive enough to make me seriously question my sexuality.*

*Not really, but it's a near thing.

yay a thread I can post in

I particularly liked the music of the series.

I hope Korra's book 2 doesn't gloss over things like book 1....

It describes like every show and book I've ever hated.

Ohey book 2 has been out for like a year or so now

let's see what I said about it back in 2012

Yeah, I was pretty disappointed with season 1 of Korra overall.

I probably won't actively try to watch season two
like, I might watch it with my friends if they're watching it socially or something, they do that sometimes
and I might put it on as background noise in a couple of years, I dunno
but I'm not really feelin' it.


uh

yeah


still can't be bothered

I have several textbooks I'd rather read than watch this

mmmm, textbooks
nomnomnom

None of this changes the fact that Bumi, Tenzin's brother, is now the best airbender ever, and I'm not talking in terms of sheer power or ability.
