I'd really like to know how Appa reproduced.

Are Sky Bison Asexual?

And what happened to the one or two other Bison? Tenzin took off on one separate from his family, but in the blimp chase they were suddenly all on the same one.

Also, I just did the math, Ang died at 65. The Hell? Kyoshi lived 262 years, Ang was a frooty monk living the health-nut life, what in blue-blazes made him die so early?

I want to see a series about Tenzin's kids. Those three are just incredible.

So am I the only woman here who somehow felt attracted to Korra the first time she saw her? :sachi_blush:

At this point, it's looking more and more likely that Amon doesn't remove bending, but steals it. He's not some second "Avatar," but he'll definitely be able to go toe to toe with Avatar State Korra if he can bend three elements.

Tsk, tsk. You are woefully behind on your non-televised material.

It's been mentioned that Aang found a lost herd of sky bisons after the war, and that the time he spent frozen reduced his natural lifespan.

I am an Asami fangirl. I love Asami Sato, in the literal and figurative sense. So, I've decided to follow a trend I've seen in another thread: they call it 'worship'. So, this is Asami worship:

I don't get it, we hardly see any of her "character". She isn't interesting at all... she's not even a good looking character >.>

Asami's cool, but she has one big major character flaw that could get her killed: she's in a relationship with Mako. I mean, seriously, can't that bloke just make up his mind? It's painful because it's like the guy juggling sapient howitzer rounds and he doesn't even know it, and of course everyone's going to end up heard when he finally drops one.

Mako is such a manwhore. If Asami dies because of him, you people will have to take me to a mental hospital so that I don't hurt other people.

Asami appears rather "evil" to me. TBH, I thought she was to be a femme fatale.

And here's two things that give me disconnect; Mako parents were killed by a firebender, but he doesn't hate himself for having the same power, and Asami's mother was killed by a firebender, but she doesn't fear nor resent firebenders in particular. Also, why are all the family killers firebenders?

more nitpicks  SPOILER: Show

Further, the Sky Bison aren't really given personalities, Naga has been under utilized, Torrak was ended a little too cleanly, the gang violence felt like it should have been its own plot-line somehow, if Mako and his brother are fire and earth benders respectively, shouldn't one or both of their parents have been as well? "Rohan"'s name is insignificant, yet the implication was as if it was somehow, Bolin acts a little too skiddish and tentative at times for someone that grew up on the streets...


And did they ever let the poor Cabbage Corp president go?

And once again, no Avatar State, ¡¿Por qué?!

What makes you think they weren't?

"Rohan (रोहन) is an Indian name meaning "to ascend; to rise, to attain great heights" in Hindi/Sanskrit."

Seems rather appropriate for an Airbender. There's also this, which suggests it has some heretofore unknown significance.

The implication is that he's been sheltered by Mako growing up. Poor guy could use more screen time/lines/development though.

He's sending a group of battleships against bombers in a harbor. That is quite literally the second worse naval situation out there. The only way it could be worse is if the harbor was mined.
Just dropping by to say, "Called it!" Or something similar. Aircraft FTW!

:lol: You make a good point there, but I still think we'll see a lot of butt kicking from his part. I mean, he is Zuko's grandson after all :chuckles:

I think that will still kick more butt than Korra.

Unless there weren't benders on the ships. Then yeah, even Korra could stand a fighting chance against those guys.

Genetics is hardly a marker of greatness. If it was true the Soviet Union would have fallen shortly after Rommel and Patton's sons became friends. Still, surely someone in change of such a large force must be competent in their duties, even if they are commanding a multinational force . . . during peacetime . . . following a period of military cutbacks . . . *sigh* They're doomed.
