Well, we got a double episode last week, so I guess it evens out.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

Now that I know it's not on tonight, I wonder if that might have been part of the reason for the back to back airings.

Sincerely,

Bill

I'm actually glad it's not on because it means I can watch the Dracula premier with no conflict.

Last season aired on Saturday mornings, this season airs on Friday nights, hopefully that accounts for the depressed ratings.

Ugh. I'm finally off on a Friday night and there's no new episode this week. Figures.

Also, Nickelodeon messed with the schedule. You go from 7:00 to 8:30 without making a big announcement...

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

It doesn't seem like they care about Korra anymore. The target age demographic has gone too high up and they are just airing it now because they have a contract with Bryke for another two books.

I wouldn't be surprised to see it relegated to NickToons Network by next book.

^Actually the reason they moved it to 8:30 was to try to improve its ratings after the 7 PM airings dropped off. And the show is still performing very well on their website and on iTunes. I gather that Nick still believes in the show, at least for now. Maybe they should move it back to Saturday mornings, though.

I'm OK with that! I get that channel for some reason!

You know, all the time that old lady was on screen I kept anticipating that they'd reveal her as a known character from the old series. The presence of the Sky Bisons more or less convinced me, but nothing came of it.

How freaky and cool would it have been if she had turned out to be an elderly, reformed and no longer batshit crazy Azula?

That would actually be pretty cool. Lots of time has passed; people can change.

I'll be glad when they show Zuko and his daughter. I wonder if he looks more like his Uncle Iroh...

I always thought he was supposed to resemble his father. I assumed that this and his disappointment with Zuko was the real reason he disfigured his face.
