On LOK and ATLA

I finally finished watching Legend of Korra. I know, I know, I am way too late on this… but hey, when you’re busy focusing on your career and trying to live a life, sometimes the usual relaxation methods don’t work.

There were times even I was surprised we were able to delve into the really tough stuff on a children’s TV network. While the episodes were never designed to “make a statement”, Bryan and I always strove to treat the more difficult…
