The Legend of Korra – Nuktuk – The Hero of the South – Video

Bolin plays the lead role in “Nuktuk: The Hero of the South” on The Legend of Korra on Nickelodeon.

This last episode of The Legend of Korra was easily my favorite of Book 2: Spirits so far. I think it had a lot to do with the fact that Korra only appeared in the last few minutes! The show was so much better without her. That’s how bad her character has fallen this season.

Honestly, they should just retitle this show the adventures of Bolin and Mako or something since these two guys are basically the heart and soul of the series. Mako is more heroic than Korra will ever be and Bolin is just so likeable he steals the show every single time he is on.

Perhaps there is hope though because in the final scene when Korra washes ashore in the Fire Nation, she wakes up with amnesia. Hurray! The writers may have realized that we all need to forget how awful Korra is including herself. It’s like: I don’t care if she gets her memory back, let’s just all forget the first few episodes happened.

Bolin’s a “mover” star now… he’s NUKTUK! This is no doubt suppose to parody “Nanook of the North”, with a healthy blend of 30s film serials like “Flash Gordon”

Hmm, I'm finding myself at odds with this review. I really love Korra as a character and think the writers did a great job of creating a teenage, female avatar that's fiery, ballsy and extremely likeable in my opinion, despite the fact that she's completely opposite to Aang from the last series. Yeah, she's frustrated, emotional and agitated this season, but that seems to be a natural and realistic path for the writers to take, since she's just a teenager (who happens to be the avatar) in her first relationship in addition to the fact that the place she called home just became part of a war.  

Quote ratings all you want, but I really think that's Nickelodeon's fault and not that of the writers, characters, plot, etc.. If your definition of a likeable character is Bolin (who's great for comedy), I'd suggest watching Spongebob or something instead. I would say Mako is equally as "awful" as Korra.

@JulianPerry6 Well, the plot points in the first few episodes centered around Korra's stupidity to be honest. She turned on her father on a dime -- to arbitrarily start the conflict -- then she goes back to the father. It was very frustrating for me to watch that. I do hope it gets better. But right now I find the supporting cast far more interesting that the lead -- which shouldn't be.
