Love this show.

Totally missed this season. No season ticket or web presence to date means with my odd hours I've missed EVERY ep

You can watch all the episodes on Nick.com

Seeing as how they aren't airing it on television any longer this is the only way to watch the episodes now  :'(

the reasoning was two fold.  First, it never really fit the other shows that Nick has.  But the most important is that it was tanking on television.  However, the internet viewership was through the bleepin' roof!  So instead of wasting network time and losing money there, they moved it where it was doing the best.

I don't think that's true, really, or at least isn't the whole story. They moved it to online-only just before the show started getting very dark and didn't let up for the rest of the season. And what a glorious season it was.

i noted this as well, part of why i thought if this is a permanent move, book 4 should have a fair share of dark before ending [i would expect] happily
book 3 ending spoilers ahead
yea if we've gone dark enough to blow peoples heads off, literally pull the air out of a persons body, actively electrocuting people, not just shocking them, etc. That alone is enough justification for them maybe to move to online only/ fi they would ve moved LOK to Teen Nick, that may have been okay too.

still man, this ending, so many mixed feelings, seeing Korra like that, on top of a beautiful ceremony just..yea

I know its been circulating around for a few weeks now, but there is a little quote that the internet has received in past weeks that i feel is very true and Nick may have realized. "Legend of Korra is not a kids show, it's a show for adults who first saw Avatar TLA ten years ago and cant get enough [of the universe]"

Loved it. Wished the characters were a bit more mature, but the story and the mythology and all of that were great. Not sure how they're going to get her healed up. Maybe the air benders will be the big figures in Book 4 and Korra will be like Oracle from DC Comics?

There's been a theme running throughout the series of Korra being slowly convinced that the world doesn't need the Avatar anymore. Her entire being is centered on being the Avatar, so if the world doesn't need the Avatar, she has nothing. I think season 4 will feature an event or events that reverse that and reaffirm Korra's sense of identity.

I actually just finished Book 3 the other day, bought it on my Xbox One via the Xbox Video app, and oh boy do I have to agree with those who said this season got dark. I mean, especially those last few episodes. They really did not shy away from the fact that they were killing people.

I gotta say though, I thought it was kinda funny that Mako finally electrocuted the evil water-bender, because right before he did it, I was wondering "Why hasn't he been lightning-bending? Have the writers actually forgotten he has that ability?" And then boom, blast of lightning straight into the water. Not only that, but Zaheer bending the air out of the Earth Queen's lungs and suffocating her like that? That was twisted even by my standards.

That seems very appropriate and I hope it's a trend that continues. I've enjoyed Legend of Korra immensely since Book 1, but Book 3 is the first time I've felt like it's truly lived up to the best of The Last Airbender.

I seriously doubt she's actually paralyzed. I think it's more that the poison took such a toll on her that she's still too weak to walk or stand on her own for very long. She'll recover with time.

My big hope for Books 4 & 5 is that the Red Lotus becomes the constant big bad, like the Fire Nation was in TLA. My one big gripe with Legend of Korra so far was the lack of a consistent villain through the seasons. That was my favorite thing about The Last Airbender, and I was really sad to see that change with Legend of Korra.

Mike and Bryan have confirmed that Book 4 is the final Korra chapter, and the villain is not directly connected to the Red Lotus
Book 4's title is also confirmed to be "Balance"

Which makes sense, given that if balance is achieved the Avatar is, in theory, no longer needed.

That said, by the time I finished watching the book 4 trailer, all I could think was, "Man, I really wish they'd made a Nausicaa of the Wind series."

Imperial industrial-powered nation on the warpath against also industrial but smaller powers with lesser groups swept up on both sides? The natural world overwhelming mankind's creations by breaking down its structures and replacing them with pure green life in the wake of that destruction? A young woman who is in touch with that purity of the world lashing out at mankind who wants to find a peace with it, but has trouble taming her hostility toward her fellow man? Heck, when she cuts her hair she even ends up with a Nausicaa-esque short bob.

Regardless of how good S4 may turn out to be, it's sorta ruined for me now. I'll just be wishing it was Nausicaa instead. x.x

I'd been wondering when they'd do that for a while now. As well as a couple twisted things for fire and earth benders such as bone benders and spontaneous combustion (or heat benders stealing the actual heat from people)

I've finally watched LoK since I'd been disappointed by their developments in Season 1 (namely how they worked Korra which pissed me off because love triangles are cheap). I've found that seasons 2 and 3 were awesome and I have high hopes of season 4. :)

Yeah, the difference in quality between S2 and 3 is astounding but understandable. S1 was written to be standalone but it got picked up, so they wrote the next three seasons together.

I'd say book 2 was probably the best all around so far in that it seemed the most "Avatar." Book 1's sorta more X-men style powers vs non-powers riot stuff (and Korra repeatedly gets her ass handed to her and feels sorta not so important in the end), Book 3 starts throwing completely new powers into play out of nowhere (lavabending? what? why?) and again Korra feels sorta more like a VIP that has to be protected than the protagonist pretty frequently. It's a weird dynamic.
