Watch The 'Legend of Korra: Book 2' Premiere After-Show - With P.J. Byrne And David Faustino!
Now that the season 2 premiere of Nickelodeon's "The Legend of Korra" has gone live, we've got a lot of questions about the jump six months into the future. What's with Mako and Korra's relationship status? What about the Fire Ferrets? And how are spirits in the material world going to affect benders and non-benders alike?
Join MTV host Steven Smith in a chat with P.J. Byrne (Bolin) and David Faustino (Mako) as they recap tonight's premiere of Book 2! geek-news.mtv.com/2013/09/13/l…
Solution, get rid of Mako and Bolin, they are boring shallow characters
Meelo dies from Cancer
Asami and Korra start dating
Put Walter White from Breaking Bad in the show, just because Breaking Bad is a terrific show
i was the only one out of all my friends who was able to see it when it premiered! The new time slot deffinitely has an effect on the number of viewers when new episodes air.
I don't have cable, but I will get to the first few episodes eventually. Maybe I can watch it online somewhere; that would do it for me. I probably won't be disappointed despite what some say, but at least Korra's back.
logical its lower, people go out at friday night 8 PM...
it's Nick's own fault
it's Nick's own fault
When A:tLA was first airing on Friday nights, I had to miss a few episodes and eventually catch reruns due to the fact that my mom took me to sports games. I didn't have a problem with it back then because I wasn't involve too much with the internet to come in contact with spoilers. When Book 1 of Korra was airing, it just gave me a reason to wake early on Saturday to prevent myself from coming into contact with spoilers on tumblr. I don't mind the new time slot, because I don't have to get up too early and I don't have to get dragged to sports games. I just hope I can continue watching LoK without coming into contact with spoilers starting with Civil Wars part 2 (moving into a dorm).
2.6 million... that's actually pretty terrible for it to be a season premiere. I thought for sure there would be more, especially after a year of fans being deprived of new Korra episodes ;0; But then again, it was on a Friday night rather than a Saturday morning (even though so were ATLA premieres and books 2 & 3, at least, consistently had more viewers than that). And the date was only set in stone a couple weeks before the premiere. I know several people who love Korra but were unable to watch it because of pre-established plans during the time slot, and a lot of commenters above me have said the same thing, so maybe that's what happened with a lot of fans.
It's still not bad in Nickelodeon terms, though, right? *doesn't keep up with any other Nick shows... or any other shows on American TV, for that matter*
About the interview: I WANT THAT FIRE FERRETS T-SHIRT. Also, super excited for this "grown-up Bolin" (even if I love him just the way he is!)
My whole family saw the premiere. Hooray for Korra!!!
War already? Wow. Can't wait already to see how Korra handles that!
The economy is also slightly more horrible than at the time of AtLA, so I'm willing to guess that fewer people have cable and/or access to Nickelodeon, which is a premium channel in most places. If they factored in how many people watched Book 2 of Korra via webcast or livestream, I'm sure the numbers would be overwhelming.
I had a party with my fried.We were both kind of disapointed in the content :/
I regret to say the same thing ;( I felt like it was just very anticlimactic in the story telling from what it usually is.
To me the episodes were mix bag so lets see where this is going.
It felt very predictable and scripted :/
Yes. That is a good way of putting it. And the conflicts between the characters just didn't seem properly developed. They were just kind of there and shoved in your face with no real logic behind them. I dunno...
Yes. Exactly. I mean i'm a big fan of the show,but U was not pleased in the least with the first two episodes of season 2
Everyone is so hyped, I thought I was the only one who didn't like it... :S
I was hyped like everyone else.But i'm my judgement was not clouded like so may others.
No, a good number of people are disappointed with it. It just didn't have the spark last season's opening did. Plus Korra seems to have forgot everything she learned last season and was a total snot to everyone for no reason. I'll remain hopeful for the rest of the season since I love the Korra-verse so much, but this opening was not very promising (and had a severe Lin deficiency).
I couldn't see it on Friday either and had to see it on Saturday illegally on an anime site unu
I wasn't aware it was premiering. I need to look again for my times.
I would have watched it live if it hadn't been on a freaking Friday night. I'm a college student. I simply cannot always be home, or not have people over, on Fridays! It suckssssss I hated waking up on Saturdays for it but I like that better than isolating myself on Fridays...
I hope there's gonna be more than just 8 episodes...
I think this is what happens when fans have to over a year for a new season and not have the joy of watching the previous episodes for a second, third etc. time because the company only shows reruns on a special channel that you can only watch if you have the deluxe cable package.
People must've still been sore from Book 1's finale to to tune in... Still, 2.6 million isn't terrible, but this show has done and should do better.
