I wouldn’t say this Legend of Korra trailer is quite as satisfying as the Game of Thrones season 2 trailer (a personal preference, possibly) and I’m not sure it’s as awesome as some of the previous Korra trailers and clips have indicated the show will be. However, if Nickelodeon is making their own TV spots for the series, that indicates to me that the show will be coming sooner rather than later, which is A Very Good Thing.
Question: There very well could be a week where Game of Thrones and Legend of Korra are on TV, at the same time Avengers is in movie theaters. Will this be the greatest nerd week of all time? And if so, how do we carry own knowing that for the rest of our lives, things will never get better than the did in that week? You know, besides drinking?
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
