    Korra didn't get as good as ATLA until season 3. And dark isn't a prerequisite for entertainment.

    I didn’t say it was a prerequisite. Entertainment within itself is completely dependent on the person; so if a person likes dark themes.... of course it’s going to be entertaining? LOK is good to me since it tackled fascism, extremism, natural law and a bunch of other stuff that wasn’t addressed in ATLAA. Your opinion of the series being good until season three is exactly that... an opinion.

    It was definitely darker than ATLA. I remember thinking that Amon's death was almost too edgy for a kid's show since his own brother killed him and himself and also the Red Lotus' plan to kill Korra was surprisingly dark too.

    You misread my post. I said it didn't get good UNTIL season 3. The way you worded your post implied that series needed to be dark to be entertaining. And I still think ATLA's attempted genocide in the finale is darker than anything Korra did.

    Idk if I said this already but who is Riverdale even for? That show is the epitome of bad writing.

    Riverdale is for people who want to see the characters of Archie comics to be entangled with a murder and edgy subjects. I stopped watching after the first five episodes of the third season because it started to feel dull.

    I've never liked Stranger Things. It gets a lot of praise for its 80's nostalgia but I think it's an overrated show with bad actors and Millie Bobby Brown is the worst offender

    Into the Unkown is a better song than Let it Go based purely storytelling wise.

    Unpopular opinion: Those who claim to be intolerant and accepting of other people's views are the least tolerant and least accepting people you will ever meet (especially online).

    Auraninja Try to understand.

    One time, I told my coworker that redheads are the unholy familiars of Satan, and then he had the audacity to call me intolerant.

    Man, what an intolerant prick.

    The paradox of tolerance. If you tolerate everything, you have to tolerate intolerance.

    I've never been a fan of the term Mary-Sue. Not because it can't be accurate but I just see it so frequently used and many times it doesn't adequately describe the issues with a specific character. Criticism is fine. Disliking a character I have no problem with. But I'd rather you give specific reasons than narrow it down just a term.

    I've never understood why certain people make such a taboo around farting. It's just a natural thing our bodies do.

    Ash's Alola team and his Alola victory are overrated.

    I dislike the term as well, but only when it's used as an easy cop out criticism of a character. It can be used correctly in many occasions though, like when people criticized Bella Swan from the Twilight franchise for being a Mary Sue: anyone who has read the books or seen the movies knows that the term is completely appropriate for a character like her.

    I think basing toys, tv shows, and colors on gender is extremely archaic and should not even exist. Just because something is more popular with one gender doesn’t mean that it should not be enjoyed by someone of the opposite gender. Who cares if a boy plays with a doll? The doll is a toy and being used for its intended purpose. Same with many popular cartoons and tv shows. Pokémon was originally aimed mostly towards boys but girls liked the franchise too and after a couple of years the series became more gender inclusive starting with Crystal. Young Justice was cancelled and had a cliffhanger for years and the two main reasons why were because there was a large female fan base and they weren’t selling enough toys based on the series. Yeah. A really good and popular show was cancelled due to the gender of its viewers. Sailor Moon was clearly meant for little girls but you find hundreds of fanboys of the show everywhere.

    The mentality of it being ok to make fun of people who are overrreacting to disappointment is just as bad as the initial overreacting

    Solo is the best Star Wars film since RotJ, though that says much more about the quality of most SW films than it does Solo.

    Marvel was already tired and formulaic almost a decade ago, with the first Captain America film.

    The Dark Knight Rises was deeply awful to the point of being inferior to Batman vs Superman.

    The Gen 1 Pokémon designs are actually far superior to anything that has come since, and more recent designs are tainted by the 'Every Pokémon must look as though it could be your friend' ethos.

    Cats was very good.

    Twitter is very good.
