Got back on this horse during the turn of the new year and have etched out quite a bit of progress during in the limited amount of time I have to push at it.

Here's the latest.

No show that quotes memes is taking itself that seriously.

That's funny, because I was flip-flopping on whether I should actually post my thoughts on the Season 1 itself and one of the things I would've mentioned is how it...yeah, it ends up becoming a fairly generic adventure, but it's clear they were trying for something more ambitious and...harmlessly failed?

I lost my Netflix access (was leaching off a mutual, natch) so I haven't seen S2, but S1 was trying and trying hard for a Game of Thrones sense of character-based drama, then seemed to kinda give up and just do what it could to get the main characters physically moving to give the thing the illusion of progression.  There's so much focus on the main bad guy and what seems to be an attempt to give the guy nuance grinds up hard against the need for this children's show to have a clear antagonist making clearly not-okay decisions and it just comes off as muddled instead.  His S1 ending scene could be them just giving up on the idea entirely from here on out.  I'm not sure.  Like I said: muddled.

Had it succeeded, I think the show would've been made a much bigger impact, but as it is, it just comes off as wasted time.  The rest of the story is the main cast on their adventure, and it light and largely inconsequential fluff, but it's done well enough and the characters are fun to watch.  It really took me by surprise just how much DeSena's voice hasn't changed...like, at all.  Then again...freaking Dante Basco, so...

I'm gonna rec it just because of Jack De Sena.  Like...  Hearing Sokka's voice again is awesome!  But I'm not going to pretend it isn't a generic fantasy with some weird art and wonky animation.  It's not that deep, either.  It's not trying to be anything more than an adventure story.  But I love those characters.  They are so sweet and there is a great emphasis on love and friendship and loyalty.  The backgrounds are quite lovely and the music is decent.  Also, they've had some good fight scenes.  But--and this is important--Koh's VA is in it! :D

I've heard that Season 2 has somehow taken what was a Generic YA Fantasy and brought it to a new level? If true, I might have to increase the priority on my Watch List.

Okay, nevermind.  I fucked it up.  :(  Anyhoo...  Seems like you can log in if you login from the blue navbar but not from the login form in the upper-right of the screen.  I'm working on...whatever it is that broke the themes in the latest update.

So I'm doing some minor maintenance to the board.  Shouldn't affect anything but if you get some kind of error, it's because I'm cleaning up the database.

Also, I switched back to the default theme.  The other theme was broken and it was just easier to reset to the default theme for now.  I'm working on creating two new themes: a light theme and a dark theme.  Hopefully, that won't take too long.

Finally got around to watching this last weekend.  I love the show.  I just wish they'd decide whether they're going for a 2-D or a 3-D look.  The sudden drops in framerate are pretty jarring.  But the story is a lot of fun.  My daughter and I compared TDP to Korra and we're pretty sure we've figured out what, in ATLA, was Aaron's handy work and what was Mike and Bryan's.
