ALOK 4 books rewrite!
« on: January 06, 2013, 09:39:20 PM »
Armchair quarterbacking here, but, here's a condensed version of how I wish the books would go: Book 1, Korra arrives in Republic City and finds the Triads running amok. She has to take apart the organized crime, and finally face the mob bosses. Book two, now the Equalists appear to move in, led by Liuetenant. At the end, we see Lieu report to Amon, setting him up for Book 3. Book 3 is basically the first season as we got it. Then book 4 is the spirit world. Koh features prominently, as do Amon and Tarrlok as spirits. Typing on phone keyboard, lots of left out details.

had Korra the benefit of 60+ episodes walking into the new series, this would have been ideal.  With 12 (and originally less) they had to cram all that together into one complete story that could stand on its own if no episodes beyond were ever ordered.

A good thought though! XD

I'm with A6 on this one, but I like your idea a lot. I wonder how the triad thing would be pulled off on a Y7 show.

Good idea, but I think it would feel a little slow. In my opinion, it sounds like it would drag on and get a bit boring after awhile.

Yeah, that's basically the main reason I forgive a lot of the complaints of ALOK, because everyone judges the first season as if they had already been green-lighted for four new Books. In the time constraints of a 12-episode miniseries, I think they did as well as they could.

My armchair quarterbacking is mostly a preamble to fanfiction I would love to write. When Korra first faced off against the three gangsters in Republic City, I was convinced she was going to spark some kind of turf war that she would have to mitigate. And of course be complicated by the fact that she was alienating the police force at the same time.
