Equalists in Legend of Korra; short-term villains?

I was looking for something else related to Legend of Korra while surfing through some Korra fansites, and I noticed this old bit of news from before the show premiered that some of you might have seen before, but was certainly news to me: Scroll to the bottom of the post where it talks about the “Future of the Series”.

First off, there’s no way they won’t net more seasons. This show is glorious and will be extremely popular… guaranteed. But if what they say is true, that means that Amon and the Equalists are temporary, and won’t be series-spanning like the Fire Nation was. My initial sadness at only having the Equalists for so long is counteracted by excitement for a constantly changing series. This could be very cool. It also explains why they’re going through the Equalist plotline at such a brisk pace; they’ve revealed things much quicker than they did with the Fire Nation.

Side note, on Avatar Wiki’s page for Amon, under Trivia, there is a crapload of creepy potential name origins for the guy. xD

Oddities in Thundercats episode “The Pit”

Alright, so uh… yeah. Thundercats is being kinda bizarre again. You’ll recall a few days ago I made another post about Thundercats, complaining about WilyKat and WilyKit’s total inability to hunt for food because they didn’t want to kill cute things, but total willingness to beat the crap out of a predator. Well the episode after that, “The Pit”, is um… also really weird. Mostly because of WilyKat and WilyKit. Again.

CN’s Saturday Lineup: Timeskips and Decency

I’m really proud of Cartoon Network right now. Despite their weirdness of having freakin’ reality TV shows (what the hell?) and dropping amazing shows like Teen Titans or not buying up new seasons of them like Secret Saturdays, they have a really good lineup right now. Aside from their good comedy shows like Regular Show, Adventure Time or sometimes Mad, they have their Saturday morning action show lineup. Which is, by the way, incredibly good.

This Saturday in particular was an excellent example. I mean, Thundercats was just alright like usual, and while the Pokemon Black & White episode was really good, the show can be a little dull sometimes as well. But Green Lantern and Young Justice really just highly impressed me.

Kumbaya victory for the Thundercats! (Ugh.)

Alright, so I’m a little late posting this, but it’s a worthy thing to post so I figured better to post it later than not at all.

Bottom line is I was watching Thundercats last weekend, the 18th episode, “Survival of the Fittest”, and it cheesed me off so bad.

Now, Thundercats isn’t a bad show. It’s not a great show either. It’s decent but has issues throughout — especially in the writing and presentation — and this episode had some big ones for me, although… possibly they bugged me more because they’re a major annoyance for me.

The episode primarily focused on WilyKat and WilyKit as they were being taught how to hunt for food by Panthro and Cheetara. This got pretty dumb pretty fast as the kids repeatedly refused to actually kill the food. They just couldn’t bear to kill these guys:
