I made a powerpoint of why I’m mad about the Korra pull. I understand it’s not cancelled (thank god), but I’m still upset.
MAKE NICKELODEON FIND THE THING!!!
If all you have to bring to the table about why Korra shouldn’t get pulled is “But female lead!” you really ought to reevaluate why you think it’s a good show. A “strong female lead” is not enough. Give me a good female lead, a three dimensional female lead with depth of character and who learns and grows through the story arcs. Korra is trash and I’m not sorry it got pulled.
BAHAHAHAHAHA IT’S HAPPENING. GET ME THE BUCKET FOR YOUR TEARS. LET ME WATER BEND THEM UP A STRAW. BAWWWWW
OP is salty her shitty show with good representation is getting the modern-day syndication equivalent of Direct-To-VHS.
Korra has much bigger problems than “it doesn’t pull numbers like Spongebob because people hate girls.”
NOTHING makes numbers like spongebob. RERUNS of that damn show still top everything else Nickelodeon puts on. But they’re still chugging forward with other shows. Korra’s getting rekt because the first season was sloppy and by the finale had half the viewership as it’s premier, and it’s second season did very little to rectify that. Shitty romance plots with thoroughly unlikable characters are not going to attract an audience. And when the unfortunate romance manages to be BETTER than the actual plot (you can’t tell me ANYONE thought a cliche like “Dark Avatar” was a good idea), that’s real bad news for a show.
You could have a work of fiction starring a transgender pansexual woman of color, but if the plot fucking blows and her character is two dimensional and suffers no growth over the series, you’re not allowed to pretend like people don’t like it because of representation. You have to face the music that the work fails to stand on its own merits.
I would like to add that no matter how good the third season may be (I just watched episode 1 of the third season out of curiosity, I admittedly liked it and now have cause to actually watch the first season I own on Blu-Ray), that based on what I’ve heard of the second season…
The series crashing and burning is no surprise.
Yes, it’s WONDERFUL that the series has all these strong, three-dimensional (based on what I know, Korra’s a blockhead but she’s no less deep than Aang) women and disabled people… but you know there’s a better show that did that?
It’s called Avatar the Last Airbender. Katara was as much the main character as Aang was, by the way, thank you very much.
Maybe it’s unfair of me to judge without watching. Maybe I’ll actually like the whole show as much as I liked the one episode I saw. But practically everyone I know who has seen it agrees that Season 2 was horrible, and given that directly preceded Season 3, well, I ain’t shocked it’s tanking regardless of how good it is.
