Check out my tumblr for my thoughts on random movies and manga^^
And on the whole I liked the finale, the only real chink in the armor was the lack of forshadowing for spirit bending. That was bothersome. But almost everything else was great and very satisfying in my opinion. Also the Boiling Rock two parter and The Day of Black Sun episodes were great as well.
Still the cheating around the "Aang has to kill Ozai" dillema and the first half being mostly filler does make it so that I can't really put Season 3 above Season 2 since season 2 was great in that it had practially no filler. That and the excellent writing and characterization. That's just my two cents on the issue.
Proud member of the Beelzebub and Negima are awesome crews.
Toonami is back. All is right again.
Say it with me now: New shows, same Toonami.
Its really the creators who wanted a trilogy(since they think of Avatar as an epic movie series like Star Wars).
For the third season, the only "filler" that I heard Nick asked for was the Painted Lady episode since Nick needed a green episode. The rest of those episodes did have some kind of purpose in the story.

But the entire first half of season 3 was filler. Yes, they all did something, but any one of them could be cut without a real loss and we'd never know something was missing. The dancing episode may have been funny with Sokka's beard and all, but... it was filler.
I liked how Season 3's first half was filler. But, again, they could've used those episodes to develop the plot more.
yeah. That.But, again, they could've used those episodes to develop the plot more.
Foreshadowed. Wrapped plot threads. Had a real conclusion. Dealt with repercussions to things. Shown Iroh being a badass. Explained combustion man. Had Zuko in the group for more than 3 stories.

Before. So now it's all up in the air unless they answer that question at the Korra panel at SDCC.
News from Comic Con! Alison Wilgus tweeted this new picture of Korra riding what appears to be her Spirit Animal. The fabled Polar Bear-Dog that fans have been speculating about.
Also, this Saturday from 4:00 - 5:00 will be the 1st The Last Airbender: Legend of Korra panel in room 6BCF during SDCC this weekend. That same morning the creators themselves along w/The Track Team will be at a signing for a brief period. Hopefully at the panel we will be getting some concrete news.
Edit: Also on sale there (and everywhere else for that matter) is the Lost Adventures comic book collection, featuring all the comics printed in the late Nick Mag, as well as some that never made print due to Nick Mag's untimely retirement. It's a cool 240+ pages for 15$ so pick it up if you have the chance!

Eh, despite Korra having the generic 'tough gal' personality I wonder what her past is and I'm interested with her chemistry with the new villain (who sounds interesting) and her accomplices. I can't wait to see what an old fart Aang has become, and how this series ties together with the old.
--- Update From New Post Merge ---
A kid having complex disturbing psychological visons of her mother, that causes her to go bat-shit insane is much more darker to me, that's Evangelion territory.
When you say "old fart" I'm assuming you mean when Aang talks to Korra from the Spirit World, as Aang is dead in this series.
Love the Polar-Dog!!! I want a plushie!!!
