Re: Avatar: The Last Hairbender & Legend of Korra

My takeaways from the episode Airbending is OP Also does any one else find Amon an awfully boring villain. He actions dont really seem to be those that are ones to win over the hearts and minds of the people of the city. It seemed like he was just indiscriminately bombing surely there was collateral...

She could just put it in only the seal of the door and be fine. Ill admit that i'm not sure what would happen to her body in terms of pressures if she froze the whole thing.

Re: Avatar: The Last Hairbender & Legend of Korra

Water-bending your way out of a metal cage is quite a feat and would take a lot of time. Fire-bending would cause the metal to heat and you might burn yourself. Earth-bending could be an option, but it's possible Korra isn't experienced enough. In any case, she's not exactly the sort of person to t...

It maybe because its a show for children and only has 12 episodes but they need more explaining for my taste. Why did Amon show up at tarloks hideout how did he even know where it was? Also when korra was in the box think "that would work as a Faraday cage you don't need to hang you'll...

Re: Avatar: The Last Hairbender & Legend of Korra

I thought the episode was good but I still have some ranting to do. It seems to me that the quality of benders has gone down since TLA which is totally possible since there has been a 70 year peace. Admittedly in TLA it was a plot centered around the top benders in all the elements. Although amon sa...

I think pro benders are supposed to be mirroring boxing matches (at least that what it looks like to me not that i watch alot of boxing) The way they set their hands at the start looks very boxing like.
