There's always people out there that miss the point of stuff. Like for example troll confessions. Those are just plain funny though.

Guess I should start using small words for these people, lol.

People who complain about others who tag their hate on Korra ships. Uh... It's called ignoring it. People have the right to hate a ship if they want to and share it. D*mn suppressors of speech. >.> If I see Korrasami or Kataang hate, I ignore it, simple as that. Avatar fans just p*ss me off sometimes.

Oh, and instead of contacting you personally, they reblog it saying not to tag hate. WOW.

It just gets sorta tiresome when the hate is all over the tag. The Once Upon A Time fandom had to establish anti tags because some immature people would tag their hate for certain ships all the freaking time.

Well to me there is displeasure and then there is hate. I don't agree with outright bashing a ship, but people should be able to post what they want as long as it isn't that.

*Sigh* I'm in such a bad mood today and this is NOT helping. ._.

To be fair it usually was outright bashing in the OUAT fandom.

It's just that sometimes people go into a tag to spazz over their ship, not to see negativity. It's a bit of a letdown when you're in a good mood.

I get really antsy about people who are determined to rip the shows apart - they go out of their way to find faults with it - I just think if you are a fan aren't you meant to enjoy it as it comes??

Agreed, I see it all the time on IMDB. Gets so freaking tiresome. I just don't get how someone can hate something in such an extreme way that they have to spend all their time ripping it apart. But that's more haters.

Although I wouldn't consider those people you talk about as real fans.

Haters gonna hate and all that. The shows did have their flaws, and you can point them out, but outright just bashing them? No way.

I mean even in my favorite series I have a few problems, but I don't let it ruin my experience. LOK is no exception.

I mainly criticized Korra because I knew it could be better, and based on the superior writing we got in S3 and 4, I feel like Mike and Bryan really took those criticisms by the fandom into consideration and made a bunch of improvements.

There's a difference between constructive criticism and just hate-watching something, and a lot of people just get stuck in the latter.

I actually think the show started getting better near the last half of season 2. Once it got to Wan's past I felt it really improve. It still had a number of problems but it felt like they were finding their footing again. That's how I somehow could tell season 3 was going to be great and had complete faith in it.

I still feel cheated with only 26 episodes in total for the best two seasons. Both should have gotten 20 episodes at the very least. *Sigh* Well, I hope they get crackin' on those comics, a lot of stuff was missing because of the short seasons. (Plus more Korrasami babeh, yeah!)

Oh and people criticizing the writing. Seriously, did they not notice the last two seasons were 13 episodes each?!

Thing is that Bryke actually wanted shorter seasons so that there'd be no filler that can be a hit or miss.

I can't even truly complain about season 4, because they had a full real episode shaved off by Nick's budget cuts. The shorter seasons paid off beautifully in season 3. I'd love to have seen what season 4 was supposed to be paced and play out like.

Indeed, I dunno how much it would've done for season 4, but one episode could make all the difference for a show. Like how the episode "Skin Deep" of Once Upon a Time made Rumbelle my favorite ship and got me back into the show.

The thing is, filler episodes help with character development and help flesh out a plot (if the filler is plot relevant), so that's why I'm disappointed.

Exactly. I usually liked the filler episodes.

The real thing is, I don't think ATLA really had filler episodes. With the exception of The Great Divide, every episodes had an important story element that would become relevant later on in the series.

What Korra really needed were 'breather episodes'

Yes, breather episodes would have been nice. Everything felt so compact.

Even if they couldn't do 20 episodes, I think 16 per season would have sufficed.
