    Also in the comics this not new to my wish list, just want to restate, I want to see what kind of relationship Korra, Tonraq, and Senna, have with Melina, Desna, and Eska. The way you describe how different the two brothers are, I feel sorry for Unaloq’s family. I hope Korra and her parents open the gate, let them in the fold to that side of the family.

    Nice, this was a fun one to discuss. Actually, the interaction between Tenzin and the others might make it one of my favorites of Korra, or at least one of the most memorable. (I agree, I don’t think this is meant to be taken as Aang being a bad father. But I did like this aspect of seeing that they weren’t this cookie-cutter perfect family, and that there were some tough things to navigate for Aang as far as parenting goes, given the kind of unique situation they were in. In some ways, that’s one of the things I liked about how Korra dealt with the futures of the Gaang, there’s a certain realism about it that maybe you don’t think of or expect when you get to the end of ATLA, and in your mind you’re thinking, ‘well, there’s happily ever after.’ It’s not that everything went totally wrong or was horrible, but there are some real complications that make it feel more complex and real.)

    On the listener question of what ATLA/Korra might learn from other series—for Korra, the romance probably is a good one to bring up. I did like the way it was handled in ATLA more, in that it was something that was built up more slowly over time, and the relationships (particularly Kataang) had time to develop outside a romantic context. I think that made the romance more meaningful, whereas in Korra, as was pointed out here, it was so focused on the drama, it was harder to connect to it. (Though also, as was also brought up here, the fact that Korra is so short was also probably part of the issue.) Although in ATLA, I did think the Zuko-Mai relationship, at least the start, could have been done better—it was kind of jarring the way we sort of seemed to come in the middle of it at the beginning of season 3. (I think the free comic which explains it worked well, but it might have been better to have worked into the show itself instead. Of course, I think the Zuko-Mai relationship works just fine going forward, it’s just that beginning which felt a little problematic, and there are other shows that handle the beginning of relationship between character other than the main one a bit better.)

    What both of you (Morgan and Lauren) were saying about the approach to romance in series—I know in a way those might seem like opposite points of view, but I admit, I feel like I kind of feel the same way, on both sides. On the one hand, I’m with Lauren in that I like that Avatar is an action story, and the romance stays as kind of a side plot, not necessarily the focus. But I also do find it refreshing that Avatar goes to the point of having characters actually get together, and have their relationship develop from there. (Which, comparing it to a lot of shonen-type shows, like Bleach, which tease you forever and a day about shipping, but never seem to go anywhere or develop, is kind of nice.)

    I do admit that I feel it makes more sense for stories, once characters have gotten together, not to focus on their relationship as much after that (after all, the tension of whether they are going to get together or not has been resolved, and just having them out doing fun things together can sort of lose that tension that drives a story and makes it interesting, and sort of feel more like fanfiction), but I think having little moments worked into the course of the continuing narrative is nice. (I think the comics have done an amazing job of navigating that. They’re able to find sort of new small ways to explore Aang and Katara’s relationship that works in the course of the rest of the overall stories being developed, without either covering the same ground or forcing a lot of unnecessary drama.)

    On the inclusion of the clips—when I first saw that I wasn’t sure that would really be necessary (I think the way the podcasts have been done up to now have worked fine and been nice), but if it’s not a lot of trouble to you, I think those are kind of nice. (I just listen to the podcasts without watching the episodes, and there’s a lot of those scenes you’re talking about that I didn’t remember clearly. It’s great to have the actual scenes right there and adding some more context to what’s being discussed.)
