liri: snikt (snikt)
This is a crosspost from Tumblr, where I've been more active in posting about the series.  Short version is that I've found the series pretty frustrating to date.  Not coincidentally, I also shipped Korra with Bolin, and felt like her feelings for Mako were underdeveloped and came out of nowhere. 

Cut for spoilers and wrath. )

Short version: Too much unearned drama, many stupid writing decisions.

Still trying to catch up with Young Justice and OH MY GOD could Captain Marvel be ANY more perfect?  I am reduced to giggling like a loon whenever he's onscreen.  I just want to buy him ice cream and and a puppy and hug him. 

And just when I thought I couldn't love him more, the episode where the world of kids and the world of adults get split comes along, and he's pwning as a kid, too! 

"Doesn't she have the power to enthrall most men?"
"And some women."

Nice. :D 

I'm more and more impressed with the show as it goes along, and I think it got off to a much stronger start than my beloved Justice League did.  I'm really enjoying Conner and Megan's relationship, both the problems - poor feral Conner, completely freaked out at the idea of anything happening to her and unable to express it except through caveman snarling - and their teenage cutesiness.  I also appreciate the fact that both Wally and Artemis handled their romantic disappointments without all the overblown heartbreak Legend of Korra is throwing around!  I mean, Bolin had plenty of reason to be so upset - the girl he likes kissing his brother - but both he and Korra have been getting way too invested for the level of relationship development that's happened to date.  I mean, come on, Korra, "I think we're meant for each other"?  You barely know him!  

Err, sorry.  I just feel like "aww, man!" or "ugh, I'm going out and beating up criminals" are far more appropriate responses to romantic disappointments at that age than "I WILL MAKE THAT BOY MINE" or "I WILL GO GET DRUNK ON NOODLES." least beating up criminals is appropriate in the context.  Not so much in real life.

I've finished up through episode 23 - which explained a lot about Megan, daaaaaamn - and hope to finish the first season and be caught up shortly. 

Also saw Avengers for the second time - never take an elderly aerospace engineer to a superhero movie, btw - and could not ship Clint/Natasha harder if you paid me.

Neglected to mention it here, but I'm watching Legend of Korra, and a little sad that the show's so transparently going Mako/Korra; Bolin is AWESOME and if you ask me Korra should go for him, because funny guys are FAR superior boyfriends to the brooding angsty boys who think they're too cool to show enthusiasm.  Especially when said angsty boys go and find themselves girlfriends, while their brothers bring you suspiciously romantic-looking "thanks for saving my life" gifts.  Just saying.

Also, Tenzin's family is the best part of the show, every time.  I want a whole show about them.  The face his wife made when... Tarloc? Karloc? invited himself to dinner was the highlight of the episode.

Meanwhile, in Young Justice news, I'm glad Artemis swung a better code name than the other sidekicks.
