Anonymous said: I know the news about Korra being released via streaming are serious and I understand people worrying about the show being cancelled, but considering that a big part of the Korra fandom already watch the show online, and that Korra is too adult for Nick's target audience, don't you think this decision might actually be good for the show? or at least not the worst thing it could happen?
You’d think so, but it’s the principle behind the show’s removal from TV that is the problem and therefore makes this an overall bad turn of events for the show.
American media stations make most shows so that the average seventh grader could pick it up and understand it. They want to make their viewers comfortable so they avoid complicated plot lines and good representation because of this. I’ve heard of quite a few foreign movies and shows that American media companies refused to pick up no matter how good they were because they weren’t “dumbed down” enough for the audience.
We’ve all seen the posts about how Nick did not want to air a show with a female protagonist. Messing with its airing time was the way to sabotage the shows ratings so they could ultimately take it off air and air things that corporations think is more marketable, like SpongBob.
So, what they are doing is taking away the amount of viewers and fans the show could have and that the show deserves because they are too uncomfortable with the “new age” stuff that is on the show. Although you would think it might give the creators more freedom, the show is almost finished production and I highly doubt they’ll change anything, if they even can change anything at this point. So, where being released online may favor shows like Orange is the New Black, for Legend of Korra it will hurt the show overall.
I mean, I am grateful that it is not being canceled. I can’t help but keep referring back to when Young Justice was going through the same thing with Warner Brothers. Young Justice had almost three times as many viewers per episode than Korra does now by the end of its run but Warner Brothers decided to cancel it in place of The Annoying Orange (I still don’t know what that show is actually called) and Teen Titans Go! (which is a horrible dumbed-down, poorly animated revamp of the original, amazing show).
It’s all about the prime market, and Korra just doesn’t fit it even though it is by far the superior show to SpongeBob or anything else Nickelodeon has to offer.
