But I AM. I totally am about to do this. In fact, I've technically already done it...
|WORK IT, GIRL.|
Well... THIS IS NOT THAT. Let me explain: The Legend of Korra takes place seventy years AFTER the events of The Last Airbender. Korra, the protagonist, is the latest incarnation of the Avatar--"the physical embodiment of the world's spirit" capable of mastering all four elements--earth, fire, water, air--in the art known as bending--and is responsible for bringing order, peace, and balance to the world--and this show is about her quest to her spiritual self, her airbending, and the fight against the anti-bending revolutionaries. AWESOMESAUCE, am I right?
Do you NEED to watch The Last Airbender to watch Korra? NO. That's what makes better for newcomers. HOWEVER. I will say that to fully appreciate certain cameos and character arrivals YOU SHOULD watch The Last Airbender. There's a lot of *fist-pumping* and *smiling* involved when you see people you recognize or witness moments with the old gang.
So back to Korra. If you don't already know, the season finale for THIS BANGIN' SHOW just happened this past Saturday and YO. Ya'll donnevn wish you'd seen my reaction because
all of that? Was ME. BEFORE I dropped into a comatose state followed by EXTREME sleep after expending all that energy to share my excitement with my now very angry, unrelenting neighbors. My love of this show had just gotten serious; it wasn't f*ckng around.
Now, I'm not going to recap what happened. You want all that? WELL I KNOW SOMEBODY EXCELLENT FOR THE JOB. CHECK IT:

First, there was this:
WHY DON'T YOU JUST FIREBEND MY HEART, MAKO?
|"Defeat him. Put an end to this sad story." ~ Tarlock to Korra and Mako|
KORRA LOSES HER MOTHER FRYING BENDING. I can't EVEN. I was also like Nuh-Uh. Then I was cursing out the fraking commercials until THEY GAVE ME BACK KORRA TIME.
|I CAN AIRBEND BISHES, SO TRY AND STOP ME NOW.|
When Bumi showed up, I *DIED*. I was laughing, cheesing, cheering. HE'S SO MUCH LIKE THE OLD ONE.
|"It will be just like the good old days." ~Tarlock to Amon|
THEN TO TAKE THE CAKE:
BUT WAIT. The awesome epicness HAS NOT STOPPED.
|"You have finally connected with your spiritual self." ~Aang to Korra|
|"When we hit our lowest point, we are open to the greatest change." ~Aang to Korra|
|SHE IS THE AVATAR. YOU JUST GOTTA DEAL WITH IT.|
She looked like a frigging goddess. I BOW DOWN TO KORRA.
And then to just cap things in THE MOST GLORIOUS, HEARTMETLING WAY POSSIBLE:
*HEART MELTS* *SWOONS*
|"I love you too." ~Korra to Mako|
DO WE SERIOUSLY NEED TO GET INTO HOW I, I, REACTED TO THIS?
Let's not forget about Beifong, though.
|YEAH, I'M GONNA NEED MY BENDING BACK. CUZ I'M A BOSS.|
