By: Dylan Hysen


Dylan Hysen gives his ranking of the seven Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra season finales in the second of his driving-to-work series.

Dylan is a software developer from the DC area who hosts the Overly Animated podcast discussing everything animation.



  1. You should compare the Avatar finale to Gravity Falls finale (maybe Korra finale too)

  2. Peter Coghill says:

    Hi Dylan,
    a couple of interesting aspects
    1. I think the story telling changes between the two shows in pacing. With the 13ish episodes the story telling is more shorthand, which is a stylistic change that I think I prefer.
    2. Sometimes seasons bleed into finales. I have trouble ranking AB1 high because my feeling of struggling to watch B1 bleed into the finale.
    3. As an “older” fan I thought I’d never have as much fannish fun as through almost all of Buffy, but Korra came very close. So there is a chance for more!

    • Dylan Hysen says:

      Hey Peter, thanks for listening as always. Yeah good point, Korra definitely has more frenetic pacing. And yeah I agree, hard to just isolate the finales and if you look at the whole seasons AB1 looks worse but I think it’s slightly easier for that one because of the isolated arc. Good to know people can get into something as much when older too; hard for me to see in myself now but I wouldn’t really know so lets hope.
