It’s sort of surreal that after 15 months of waiting, the new season of The Legend of Korra is finally starting up. That said, I think it would be a good idea to convey how I plan on covering the show for the next few months. Back when Book 1 aired, very few people actually read this blog so my coverage wasn’t very good. It was difficult to motivate myself to actually write at the time considering I was writing for no one, but fortunately for me, that won’t be the case this year.
Since we’re a mere five days away from the premiere, I wanted to give all of you a taste of what to expect for the next few months. It’ll be sort of odd because we’ll actually get to discuss the show itself rather than its production – but I’m sure we’ll be able to adapt.
The posting schedule will obviously start up on Friday. But I’ll be kicking off stuff early in the morning as opposed to waiting until 7:00 pm.
On Friday mornings, I’ll be posting a discussion thread for all of you to post your thoughts and excitement about the upcoming episode. This is what I like to call “pre-gaming” the episode without doing anything illegal.
You can spend as much time as you want discussing the episode before it starts, and you can even discuss the episode in the comments while it’s being played live. I may make another open thread for the live premiere depending on how loaded the “pre-game” thread is.
Once the episode is finished, I’ll have a recap of it posted where you can further discuss the episode.
Throughout the rest of the week, you can expect analysis of Friday’s episode, reviews and even speculation about the following week’s episode. It’ll essentially be Legend of Korra 24/7.
So in a nutshell – these next few months are going to be awesome. And then once Christmas ends, we’ll most likely be back in the offseason again.
But don’t dwell on that. Korra is back in five days.
And in case you care, college is awesome. You’ve probably noticed that due to my lack of posts. I’m sorry – it’s just that I’ve never had this much fun in my life before. I hope that you can understand that.
Lastly – shout out to Dave P. He’s a blog reader who I actually got to meet on campus. Thanks for helping me switch out of that Women’s Studies class that I accidentally (and embarrassingly) signed up for.
