Yeah, the endrun of season one and pretty much all of season two dropped viewership to like a quarter of Korra's launch

I am really liking this season more than season 2, and the last couple episodes of season 1, too bad those ones cut the fan base down so much.

I just watched the finale.

This show was never meant for kids, was it?

**Spoiler**

What gives you that impression? I think kids can totally get behind regicide. Look at Lion King! [/Sorta Sarcasm]

I really enjoyed this season. Thought the finale was wonderful.

The finale was pretty cool, the final battle was a bit too much like Aang v. Ozai at times, but it was pretty good for a season ender. if it turns out to be the end of the show all together tho, then its going to be A let down.

Great! I still worry a little based on ratings issues.

They also seem to sort of be ignoring that the Earth kingdom is now in chaos, also is it the whole earth kingdom, or just ba sing se? because in the first season, Ba Sing Se seemed to have little influence on the rest of the kingdom.

i worried too but nickelodeon went all in on producing this season and the next season all at once. so even if they think that the series is a total wash, they'd air the last season to recoup some costs

that said I am just astounded at how weird nick has been with the scheduling. is the network just descending into some post glory days incompetence or what's the deal with it?

Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino talk about the scheduling stuff a little bit on the Nerdist Writers Panel podcast. Summary: it's not really due to low ratings or to content being too mature for a kids' show. There's some other network stuff going on that they can't talk about.

Just watched it. Wow.

*spoilers*

So much to love:

- actual consequences. Seeing how broken Korra was afterwards was really intense
- I loved the setup for Zahir (sp?) gaining flight (foreshadowed way back in earlier episodes, and then in the last episode(s) they remind us how much he cares about Combustion lady.... and then losing her is what results in him completely detaching from the world, gaining ultimate freedom
- (and then, seeing him become chained at the end, reminding me that he began the season in a literal prison. Really nice symmetry)
- Loved that Korra got to legitimately kick ass, but ultimately the battle was won by a large group of people working intelligently together

Wow.

So...so much going on there.

The jump, the characters, the (obvious) bad guy, the long missed characters returning, the bigger scale.

It looks like Bolin has moved to the Metal City, possible because he married Opal? She's also in there.

Man there's just so much going on. Really excited and glad we don't have to wait.

So it looks like Mako will be defending the Earth King agains Bolin, and Opal will be fighting her brother whose name i missed.
