The YJ/Korra power hour was so mind-blowing I went out the other end of capslock. Mostly.
Young Justice: Invasion:
Bart’s with Jay- canon and appropriate.
Can we be done with Lagoon Boy? I mean, really.
TIM CURRY ladies and gentlemen. He makes Godfrey so delightfully skeezy. I lurv it.
Man, Conner- you just cannot get a superbreak.
Lagoon Boy, you BREATHE WATER. When Blue Beetle BREATHES WATER, he can be the water guy. Quit your psychic bitchin’.
Whoa. Okay. I knew the break up was bad, but. Damn. Yeah, that is break-uppable offense there. I can see it working too and still fair to the characters. M’gann’s desperate to keep everything positive and she’s got an ends-justifies-the-means attitude already and… Woof. Superdrama. Wrenches my gut, but it works.
I can see what she sees in Lagoon Boy- he’s got Conner’s RAAAH temper. He also doesn’t have his muscle, so, again- you annoy me.
Oh no he got captured and sigh, I don’t care.
Don’t buy it.
“I don’t hear her heart.” You don’t hear a lot of things. Don’t buy it.
They’re grieving. Okay. Maybe buying it. Wait till the funeral.
Hah. Called it.
Super conspiracy? HELL. YES.
I never would have thought Young Justice would satisfy my espionage itch and superhero itch as well as quality drama. *plaudits*
Legend of Korra:
Tarrlokk, let’s talk about your bizarrely convenient kink chamber there. Because seriously dude. WHAT.
TOPH IS DA CHIEF AND SHE STILL CALLS AANG TWINKLE TOES AND I CAN’T EVEN.
Congrats, you got in touch with your inner Airbender, Korra. Now let’s make with the glowing eyes of Angry Avatar already.
Meelo is best answering machine.
Ugh, this. Can someone get Sherlock here? Perhaps Dupin or Milhone or I don’t know someone who can go- Yeah, Tarrlokk’s full of BS because of EVIDENCE.
Ooo, Lin is satisfying my beat-up PI wishes and HOLY CRAP SHE’S IN AN UNDERSHIRT AND NOW SHE IS ARMORING UP AND I AM IN A SPECIAL PLACE.
That’s right you get Asami first.
Bolin, you remain perfect as always. And your poor zipper.
Well, obviously Tarrlokk’s been super honest and on our side, so yeah, let’s go beat up some Equalists. GUH. You all are TERRIBLE DETECTIVES.
More of Lin. Bein’ a badass. Yiss.
And Asami knows about the kiss and will dump Mako and get with Bolin because really, he’s better and Korra will say, yeah, get with Bolin too and they’ll all have magical, rainbow-filled threesomes forever and Mako can sit in the cold with his scarf because REALLY I DON’T CARE ABOUT THE PRECIOUS CANON SHIPS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY NERDY LIFE.
This is actually a pretty slick operation for the bad guys. I’m diggin’ it.
Oh surprise she’s not there and Tarrlokk lied. TERRIBLE DETECTIVES.
And now we’re confronting him. *facepalm* Dramatic irony will be my undoing this episode.
Hey. That witness- she’s awesome. Go clerk lady for standing up to your d-bag eeeevil boss.
Flashback- Bloodbending as illegal makes a lot of sense to me. It’s the only bending that’s only purpose is to harm and subjugate another person. Good fantasy law there.
Flashback still- Sokka, I love that you remain in love with your boomerang even at fifty-something.
Flashback- Clancy Brown you CHEW THE STUFFING OUT OF THAT SCENERY. Good Yakone evil there.
Flashback- This is why you don’t bloodbend a fully realized Avatar- he or she will Avatar State you into the next county.
Flashback- Ah, anti-bending again. I like how when Amon does it he’s like- unf yeah, I blocked your chi and I win loser, but Aang’s all- This is the worst ability ever and I hate doing it so I hope you’re happy mister because there are no winners today.
Tarlokk, taking a hostage only works short term. You are clearly not- WHAT IS AMON DOING HERE?!
AMON HOW ARE YOU NOT BLOODBENT WHAT ARE THESE SHENANIGANS?!
No more bending for Tarrlokk. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer d-bag.
Go Korra Prisonbreak!
And double go for- SCREW YOU AMON I AM OUTTA HERE!
Yay everyone’s safe and AGAIN WITH THE MAKORRA. UGH. Okay, Bryke, I get it- this is the ship. I can live with it. I just feel like I’ve seen it before a ho-jillion times so I’m not impressed. Still, rest of the show rocks socks, so we’ll just leave off interpersonal drama as one of your writing strengths.
AUGH. No new ep next week? Buuuuummer! What am I- HOLY SNAP HOUR SPECIAL FINALE ON THE 23RD?! DANCE TIME IN REPUBLIC CITY KIDS!
