Interesting to hear about how the show's going for a multiple-arc plot structure. I'm already getting curious about where things could go beyond Amon & the equalists and how Korra might be challenged when (if?) she figures out airbending by the end of book 1.
I was convincing myself that "The Promise" graphic novel was going to answer the oft-asked question about Zuko's mom, but they didn't plug it so now I'm not sure. Hmmmm. Could be they're don't want to give away the knowledge that an answer is coming though.
And yeah, I want to know...Zuko has Iroh, yes, but she's the one member of his immediate family that actually treated him like family. As a Zuko fan, I'd like him to achieve that final bit of closure.
Mega props to Nick for letting them do the show they wanted. Lord knows they earned it. Considering how well the fanbase seems to have received Korra, I daresay the "conventional Hollywood wisdom" was just thoroughly subverted by this show. Well, almost. Ratings are the final test I suppose.
Back in Janurary Nick said on twitter there were options to greenlight even more episodes...here's hoping for more than two books.
I would suggest that it's not the medium, but the quality of perception and expression, that determines the significance of art. But what would a cartoonist know? -Bill Watterson
