If they end up following through with this schedule then the finale will air August 8th.

Nick, I don't know what to say anymore.... -___-;;;
I might hate myself tomorrow, but I'm on my way tonight
At the bottom of the bottle, you're the poison in the wine
And I know, I can't change you and I won't change
I might hate myself tomorrow, but I'm on my way tonight
Let's be lonely together, a little less lonely together

... Nope, I'm still excited. The multiple episode format is doing it for me. I can't be angry at every decision Nick is making anymore, it's exhausting. They aren't airing an episode per day like they did with the end of Book 3, they're giving us an hour long presentation. I can get behind that.

Oh, don't get me wrong! I'm completely excited. We'll get the finale, earlier - it's great!

It's just... a little frustrating too, I guess? I read a couple of tweets that Nick sent out a couple of days ago and it seems like they're completely relying on word of mouth from the fans instead of paying the money to advertise.

It's hard to understand the corporation's motives/plans... I guess I'll just leave it at that.

Indeed. I like the 'feature length hour' plan as well, but they don't advertise it at all. Its not like I watch Nick much, but I didn't see one add for Korra leading up to book 3's release. They just want to shove it in the closet and beat it like a red headed stepchild.

I'm gonna be honest, I think this is Nick being smart. They know the majority audience for this show doesn't actually watch any of their other programming, and thus obviously wouldn't see any adverts they'd air on TV, so they put notifications on social media on the internet, where we're actually far more likely to see them.

This is probably the least stupid thing they've ever done, marketing-wise.

True. That actually is pretty smart.

While I do consider it a smart move on Nick's part to utilize social media in their marketing/advertising attempt (especially with how prevalent social media has become in today's society), there are still plenty of fans (based on what I've seen) that don't know that Book 3 is even out.

There are fans on Tumblr that weren't even aware that the premiere aired last Friday... every day I go in the tags there's, at least, one new person asking what happened and/or asking for links to the episodes that they didn't even know aired.

Nick can't just completely rely on word of mouth; while it's great to have fans spreading the word, they still aren't a great source for getting the news out there. Nick has to advertise on all platforms - billboards, radio, other television channels and Internet sites - for that to happen on a successful scale.

They relied on fans to spread the word before the premiere last Friday. Did that work? Nope. The premiere had the lowest ratings in the history of the show (up until this point).

Nick needs to step all their game. I applaud them for making an attempt, but it's no where near far enough to what the show deserves.

I, in all honesty do not believe Nick is being smart..no offense to your pov Av. I just think Nick's rushing it all. Rushing to get it aired and over with. Maybe I shouldn't think this way but that's how I feel.

Makes sense considering Avatar is really a selective fanbase to begin with. Seems to me more teens and adults watch it more than kids, and I'm cool with that. There's a lot of stuff in it that a kid just won't understand or get.

Still, they need to at LEAST advertise it better on the internet in some way shape or form if they are going to stick with this route.

I'm thrilled to be getting an hour of Korra, but I can't figure out what Nick is doing at all with their handling of this show. XD

This isn't the first time they've handled one of their best shows poorly. They did it with the original show before as well. :/ They'll advertise the hell out of their crappy shows, but not their good ones.

My guess, it's to catch up to the leaks. If they aired it one episode at a time, we wouldn't get to episode 6 for another 3 weeks. I dunno if it's a smart move of Nick's or not, but I agree with Av. Getting angry over everything Nick does is exhausting to do and to see constantly in this fandom.

Another petition though? Yeesh, people need to realize that those do nothing and the big wigs of the TV Network don't give a crap. Petitions only work when you actually act on what you're petitioning, which is what activism is. Like boycotting or going on strike, things like that. If all you're going to do is write a random petition, have a petition and then do nothing else, it won't get anyone's attention. I'm not just talking about that Korra petition though, just online petitions in general.

Don't you want the petitions to do a little harm towards what it's petitioning against? XD I see petitions so often though in all the many fandoms I'm in that I'm kinda sick of them. I wish they did work, but the fact that they don't makes me feel like it's pointless to sign.

I'm a little mixed about them burning through Korra so fast myself, but I don't see much reason to get mad about it. I see this as something to be happy about it because honestly having an extra episode to be able to watch next friday is actually gonna be feel nice, especially knowing that Korra episodes often end on cliffhangers. I'm not the biggest fan that it's going to end sooner than it normally, but I choose to see the bright side of the situation. That and I'm allergic to negativity in general. XDD

Petitions are great for proving that people want more of a show and want it to stay on the air, because every signature is another consumer the networks can count as being reliable. Petitions for nearly anything else involved in television are transitory displays more than anything else.

And that's what I love about you, Fe. Why be allergic to negativity when you can be allergic to something else? Epi  pens make great assassination devices, anyway. 


Jokes aside, I do enjoy the fact that we'll get story developments faster. And when the series ends we can talk about it on our senile friendly mobile devices with our old, bad selves.

But how often has an internet petition for a tv show bore any fruit? It's a great idea when it's something important, I agree, but unfortunately it doesn't solve many problems when the people it's getting sent to don't listen. I think petitions have to work when it rustles up some people to act on it, otherwise it doesn't make so much as a footprint in the sand.

I'm sorry, but I don't think this is Nick being smart.  This is Nick treating an asset like an embarrassment, Nick being penny-wise and pound-foolish when it comes to not advertising their product.  Even if the fanbase is small compared to other things, is this any way to make it grow?
