Well, folks, time for some totally random theories/hopes that have been stuck in my head for a few days about LOK. Today's one is a bit shorter than my other thoughts. These are mostly misc. thoughts on characters and story development. Please leave any ideas that you have because I enjoy looking at them.
First off, I would like to see us venture into inner Republic City with all the skyscrapers and various urban structures. It would be cool to see them up close instead of from an aerial view. Maybe they could even go inside and explore the interior and even go to the top. The skyscrapers would be a perfect place for a epic final battle, maybe even some references to King Kong, Godzilla, or some other humorous situation. Another awesome pla…Read more >
Once again, I am hoping to appeal to all you history buffs out there or to anyone who will read and appreciate these thoughts rattling around inside my skull. Today, I will make theories on what I hope to see in Legend of Korra and you are welcome to leave comments below on what you'd like to see.
First, I would really like to see how far technology has come in the Avatar universe. I mean, yes, we have Satomobiles, trolleys, and improved airships, but what about other things? I mean, for one thing, if this is equivalent to the 1920s in our world, has the airplane been invented yet? I could see it playing a very important role in the Avatar universe and it is a very important invention in our current world today. I must say, a secret hope of…Read more >
For all you history buffs, knowledge seekers, or people who are just interested to hear some new things, this is for you. Let me first say that one of the many reasons I love Legend of Korra is all the connections to history that Mike and Bryan are (perhaps) using, because the history part of my personality is enjoying it considerably.
Today, I'm going to talk about the next episode of Korra: The Voice In The Night. After watching the trailer showing the raid by Tarrlok's task force on the Equalist hideout on Nick.com and after some major thinking, I realized this is a perfect representation of the Red Scare back in the 1920s and 30s in the U.S. The Red Scare was a period in the U.S after World War I when labor was getting massive amounts o…Read more >
So this is my first blog post, and I am going to try and explain some possible historical events/eras that could be connected and or an influence to Legend of Korra. I'm a major history nerd, so this should be interesting. I'll talk about Korra, Mako and Bolin, the Equalist Revolt, and other possible connections. I thought I should mention that Mike and Bryan have said that A:TLA "era" was equivalent to the 1850s in our history and that Legend of Korra is obviously a representation of the Roaring 20s. Check Tumblr if you need it confirmed.
The first character I will discuss is Korra. In my opinion, she is a great example of a "flapper", or a girl who goes against the idea of acceptable behavior for girls. Not that I'm saying that all the gi…Read more >
