Shots from the writers’ room today… Mike, Tim Hedrick, and Josh Hamilton pitching out a script from season two.
EDIT: Hmmm… Seems to be some confusion. The first 12 episodes of Korra are what we’re calling season one (aka Book One), the following 14 episodes are season two (aka Book Two), which was announced a while back. I guess it just wasn’t clear how those episodes were split up. Carry on!
“Legend of Korra” is a show starring a teenage woman of color in an Asian-inspired world, with a plot that revolves around the concept of privilege and class warfare.
Meanwhile the writers are a team of white male Americans, ie. the most privileged group of people on the planet. Is it really any wonder that the whole “oppression and bullying of non-benders was so badly handled? That they chose instead to focus on making their female protagonist spend the majority of her story feeling helpless, alone, and constantly distracted by half-hearted romantic subplots?
I know I’m not the only one thinking this. I just have to say it. Just another really important reason why they should have gotten a writing team, preferably one that included people other than white men.
