It's a sad, depressing story about a pathetic coyote who spends every waking moment his life in the futile pursuit of a sadistic roadrunner, who MOCKS him and LAUGHS at him as he's repeatedly CRUSHED and MAIMED! I hope you ENJOY IT!

UPDATE: Apparently, episodes 1, 2, and 3 of this season will finally be available online starting next week, on July 14. What's odd is that it's just those 3 episodes and it doesn't include 4 and 5, which would have aired by that point. I'm guessing since Nick already said those won't be available online, they don't want to backpedal just yet. It might even be this way for the other episodes, but it's too early to tell. In the meantime, if you still haven't seen the premiere, but also want to see the next two episodes, set a recording of those two with your DVR or whatever you have. Then, when you watch the premiere after buying it on Monday, you can watch the episodes you recorded. Bam! All caught up!

We now return to the original journal entry...


Been wondering why Korra's newest episodes aren't available on Nick.com or iTunes yet? Well, it appears they won't be at least until the season's over. Why? A new commercial for Korra (YAY! THERE ARE COMMERCIALS!) stated that Book 3's episodes are ones that "you can't see online... or anywhere else."

Why this decision? I have a pretty good theory...

Ever since those leaks, Nickelodeon became nervous of it happening again and what effect it would have on ratings. Apparently, with a mere 1.5 million viewers tuning in the first time the premiere aired, their fears were justified. Then again, they did only give us a weeks notice about it... Either way, it seems pulling Korra episodes from all online providers is their way of making sure leaks never happen again. On top of that, it'll give fans an incentive to watch the new episodes as they air on TV, hopefully boosting their ratings.

While I am mad that we'll have to wait until the season's over to legally download these episodes, I am impressed with Nick for taking some kind of action regarding the leaks AND the show's ratings. I'll admit that there are other things they can do to make sure this season rakes in viewers, like having even more commercials or putting it back on Saturday morning, but this is actually a good start... At least, I think so.

Let's just see how this works out.
  • Mood: Apprehensive
Just a reminder: REWATCH THE FIRST THREE EPISODES OF BOOK 3 OF THE LEGEND OF KORRA TONIGHT AT 8 PM EST AND HELP MAKE THE RATINGS BETTER THAN THEY WERE THE FIRST TIME! Let's aim for at least more than 1.5 million, okay?

And now, to the original journal entry...

It seems Nickelodeon really is making up for those leaks in anyway it can... One of those ways being airing two new episodes of The Legend of Korra every Friday at 8 PM EST.

After the reruns this Friday, the following weeks are expected to be like this:
  • July 11: "In Harm's Way"/"The Metal Clan"
  • July 18: "Old Wounds"/"Original Airbenders"
  • July 25: Episodes 8 and 9
  • August 1: Episodes 10 and 11
  • August 8: Episodes 12 and 13 (finale)
Some might see this as Nick just burning off the series and purposely trying to make it fail, but let's really look over what's happened...

Despite the season being done with production already, Nick was likely going to save Book 3 until sometime after Comic Con, like they did last year. Suddenly, someone over at Nick's Latin American website accidentally uploaded 4 episodes. They were soon taken down, but because of the fandom's lightning reflexes, they were able to grab copies of them. You have to imagine that Nick was panicking over this and had to come up with a way to make up for this. Sure enough, they soon officially released a trailer for Book 3 and, not too long after, announced its official premiere to be on June 27. Admittedly, they could have given up a bigger heads-up than a mere week in advance, but again, they had to act fast. I imagine that what happened with the original series' Book 3 after it had some unfortunate leaks.

Now there's also talk of this being evidence of how kids networks are always trying to kill off action shows in favor of comedic ones, since comedy is cheaper and sells better than action. While I can't really vouch for other networks *coughCNcough*, I think Nick isn't all that guilty of this. Why? TMNT. If they were really getting rid of action shows, why would that one get picked up for a 4th season? Plus, I can guess that a CG action show isn't all that cheaper than a hand-drawn one. It might be cheaper, but I can't see it being by much. On top of that, Korra is far from being purposely killed off. Let's not forget all the activity centered around the show on their social network accounts, the Blu-Rays with much more features than your average Nick DVD, the planned merchandise coming from Dark Horse, and the recently announced video game from Platinum. Despite how they treat the show on the air sometimes, Nick certainly isn't flat-out ignoring Korra. They know it's got a huge fandom and, while they're not exactly the best at it, they try to please it anyway they can.

Don't get me wrong. I think Nickelodeon could do a better job in handling the series. I honestly don't want this season to be over so quickly and I sure wish the first three episodes were legally available online by now, but despite that, they could do a lot worse. At the moment, all we can do is take what we can get and watch the heck out of these new episodes when they air.

RULES:

-In terms of fan art, I can only draw characters and things from shows and franchises I'm familiar with. However, I will occasionally do art of something that's nearly a complete mystery to me, if it's not too complicated and/or I like the challenge. If you're not sure what franchises I know about, just ask me about the one you have in mind.

-NO bashing of any franchise. (unless I hate it too)

-I won't always do OC art, but don't be afraid to ask and don't be disappointed if I refuse. I'll do my own OCs without question though.

-There are a number of fetishes I won't do, including but not limited to: Expansion (breasts, butts, and muscles are exceptions if they're not too obscenely big), inflation, vore, bubbles, and most furries (as an example, Kitty Katswell is fine). I'm currently on the fence about Yaoi and Yuri stuff.

-NO VISIBLE NUDITY... Unless you're fine with it being only on my blog. (bare butts and side boobs are fine, though)

-NO BLOOD OR GORE, unless it's very light.

Just remember that you all get only one commission at a time each. You also have to pay before I start on it, but inform me when you have payed. The PayPal account to pay is rh_ledbetter@yahoo.com, but remember that my real email address is tlrledbetter@gmail.com if you want to talk to me.

Halfway through the Book 2 finale, and holy crap was I treated to one hell of an awesome battle. And now Raava's been vanquished and UnaVaatu is loose. Won't be much longer now, so far this finale is exceeding my expectations!

Seeing those past lives disappear was hard to watch, I'm betting.

Yes, but I was expecting that, already been spoiled a good deal. And I know she won't fully reconnect by the end.

At least the lives themselves aren't lost. Just the connection to them. That could be fixed in a later story, for all we know.

After that, all that's left to do is wait for Book 3 to finish airing and you can catch up with that.
