The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: “The Ultimatum”

We waste the first five minutes of “The Ultimatum” on Bolin and Mako stealing an airship and tooling around the desert looking for Korra before figuring out what we already know, which is that she’s back in the Misty Palms Oasis cooling her heels with Asami, Lin, Tonraq and Zuko. Eh? I guess I’m still used to ATLA seasons, where shit would be pumped to 200% intensity by this point. But hey, at least it’s not season two.

I Watched Bayghazi So You Don’t Have to: A Gif Review

Ahhhh, January. The cinematic dumping. A time for shitty horror movies, whatever the hell this is, and Michael Bay's hard-hitting take on Benghazi, AKA proof sent down from heaven by JESUS HIMSELF that Hillary Clinton is evil and hates America and kicks puppies in her spare time.

The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: “Long Live the Queen”

This episode is called “Long Live the Queen,” so I ASSUME that the Earth Queen is going to die. But maybe Freddie Mercury shows up and does a rousing rendition of “Fat Bottomed Girls” while Pabu and Bolin groove in the background? I don’t know.

The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: “Old Wounds”

The good guys are still in Metal Clan central, AKA Zhao Fu, where Lin and Su are continuing to have the most dramatic sibling reunion since... well... Zuko and Adult. My sibling fights were more of the "I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you, you can't get mad because I'm not touching you!" variety. The ATLAverse is harsh.

The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: “Original Airbenders”

What a boring, nothing episode this is. Tenzin, you know I love ya. But I feel like we’ve already been over “Tenzin has issues with being too controlling as a teacher/father, but then he has a Personal Growth Moment and gets over it” like three times.

The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: Season Two Finale

Korra's season two finale is worthy of the rest of the season, which is to say it isn't that good. I've thought in the past that maybe I've been too harsh towards this season, that my expectations had been unfairly elevated by how great ATLA was. But... nah. This season hasn't been awful, but the storytelling's still whackadoodle.

The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: “Night of a Thousand Stars”

Shockingly, this episode is not a late-night telethon about the dangers of cactus juice, but rather an episode where boring stuff happened in order to move the plot along before the finale because season two of Korra has kind of sucked. I miss Avatar.
