What to Watch After Buffy #2: The Legend of Korra

How do you beat the Buffy Hangover? How can you remedy the seemingly endless period in which you are in a perpetual state of Buffy-induced unrest, unable to find another television show that can measure up to the golden standard of Whedon perfection? No matter what you try, there just seems to be something missing from other programs. Maybe the plot lines are too loose. The dialogue too generic. The characters too one-dimensional.

Sorry to say, but I’m here to tell you that there is no cure. I’m confident that there will never be another show better than Buffy in our lifetime. However, while there may be no show that rivals BTVS as a whole, there are a lot of shows that master certain aspects of it.

You can just see Tara stealing Willow’s laptop, scrolling through message boards and then quietly shutting it after witnessing one too many “I luv u 5ever“s. Continue reading
