The Legend of Korra

 

giphy.gif

 

A show I have never watched but I am familiar with the name and the network it aired on. The Legend of Korra is an American animated television series created by Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino. It aired on Nickelodeon but I was always more of a Disney girl and I stopped watched Nickelodeon by the time this aired. This was not my choice to be on the top animated shows left but it is what it is. The show premiered in 2012 and finished in 2014. The cartoon series ran for four seasons. It's a sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender. I didn't know that because I've never watched that show either. The series follows Avatar Korra who is the successor of Aang from the previous series,. Avatar Korra faces political and spiritual unrest in a modernizing world. I just wrote that and I have no idea what the show is about. I guess it's a show you need to watch to get. The show received praise from critics and viewers alike. The series has addressed such topics including sociopolitical issues such as social unrest and terrorism. The show has a rapid fandom so a round applause to the people who got it this far. I don't know If I'll ever watch but you never know with this quarantine.

Legend of Korra. ❤️ Not as good as Airbender and Korra isn't quite as rootable as a lead but still awesome.

Better late than never! As promised, here is my bonus write-up for Glee even if its means that no one will read it. Glee is a show that is either loved or hated by many. Just like in the real world, the show is quite polarizing in this rankdown but it was expected, just as its livelihood in the rankdown. Anyway, I hope to be able to share my thoughts on the show, and the impact it had on my life, the legacy of the show, and some of my favourite performances from the show. 

 

First off, Glee was musical comedy/drama that aired on Fox between 2009 and 2015. The show aired on Fox where it was created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan – all of three also played a part in direction and written aspect of the show. The show was incredibly popular during its initial few

 

What was Glee about? Glee centers on a high school choir aka a glee club at the William McKinley High School in Lima, Ohio.  Essentially, the show involved lots of singing from popular songs to show tunes. And while the show had some problematic scenes, the show did cover a lot of matter that deserved to be talked about such as religion, sexual identity, homophobia and transphobia, bullying,  body image, adoption, disability awareness, sex, mental health, domestic violence, the consequences of texting and driving, grief, and life after high school. 

 

What did Glee mean for a young Chris in a town of 1200 people? Glee meant everything to me, I could finally relate to someone on television. For young Chris who was bullied constantly in high school for being different, all despite not being opened with my sexual orientation, Glee was the show that brought joy and light into my life week after week. Their discussion surrounding acceptance of your sexual orientation showed me that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and everything will be better. If I am being honest, it was the first time that I related to a character as much as I loved Kurt - a musical loving gay kid; I wish I could have been as confident as Kurt where I could have openly love musicals without be ashamed of doing so. At the end of the day, Glee brought so many joy to all the Mercedes/Kurt/Blaine/Rachel/Brittany/Santana/Tina/Artie/Finn or the world - we felt heard and represented on TV; and that is truly Glee's real impact on television, as well creating a new appreciation of musicals among millennial.

 

And since Glee, the cast of Glee found some success in different aspect of their life - Amber Riley starred in Dreamgirls on West End where she won the Oliver Awards for her role as Effie White, Lea Michele starred in different shows and released three albums, Darren Criss added an Emmy to his name, Chris Colfer is a #1 bestselling author and has published 15 books, Jenna Ushkowitz appeared in Waitress as Dawn as well co-produced Once on This Island & Be More Chill on Broadway, Melissa Benoist appeared on Supergirl as well on Broadway as Carole King in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, and Alex Newell been making wave with his portrayal of Asaka in Once on This Island on Broadwasy as well as Mo on Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. 

 

And now, here are my favourite songs/performances of each season - I am sure some will disagree but here we go;

Aw Chris. I'm glad Glee helped you as much as it did. 😍

And their cover of Cry is one of the few Kelly Clarkson covers I actually like.

Hello 👋

 

So, I’ve been learning about what’s been going on behind the scenes. This game is supposed to be fun, and it’s a shame when it becomes difficult for people. Final cuts are supposed to be next, but I’m afraid it’ll end up exacerbating the situation with 15 rankers making 15 cuts. So, I’m willing to change the format to 15 saves instead of 15 cuts. I’m undecided though.

 

I know I’m the host and should just make the decision myself, but I would like to know how you all feel about this. I know it’s unprecedented for a rankdown’s final elimination round, but it’s still going to be a Top 20. Feel free to share your thoughts.

saves are fine for me especially with the trash behind the scenes.

I am completely clueless, so I won't argue with whatever you decide.

I have always liked the saying don't let a few bad eggs ruin the fun for everyone. So I think letting those people dictate how the game ends is probably not the right way to go about this. But you are the host so its up to you ultimately.

I think since we already did the voting to advance a few, final cuts would probably give a more accurate Top 20? But I haven’t really gotten too involved in the behind the scenes stuff, so I understand if majority votes for the saves instead...

 

Basically, if you want everyone to vote I’d vote to leave it with cuts as-is. But I’ll stick with it either way. :yes:

I wouldn't mind a save per rankers, and rankers can volunteer to do write-ups.

But it seems that you won't be able to please everyone :(
