"With Korra, we didn’t want her to be perfect or have everything figured out. She was awesome at this one skill or this set of skills, but still had a lot of growing up to do. She’s basically a girl who was secluded away for most of her life at the south pole, didn’t really have any friends or close friends - and was set off into the world to like, not only save the world, but then have these relationships with people her age and stuff. You’re bound to make some stupid decisions or not say the right thing all the time. But I think once people sees the full series arc she goes through… you know, she comes to a nice place."

"It’s funny there are people who are so attached to the original series and it’s funny because when they confront us and they write us critical things like they’ll write us a little fan letter like… Mike and I remember during Avatar how people would be like ‘I don’t like this, and kind of whining about every little thing in the show, and really mad about how a season finale would end, and ‘I can’t believe you’d put the characters through that,’ and now that years have been removed from that, the feedback we get now about Avatar is like, ‘It’s perfect, there is nothing wrong with it, and every moment of it is perfect,’ and I don’t think every moment is perfect, I have tons of problems throughout the series, but I love it and I’m proud of it. And then with Korra they’re nitpicking every little thing and there’s a lot of comparing of Korra to, not just the shows, but comparing the character of Korra to Aang like ‘Aang was such a sweet, gentle soul, and Korra is just, she’s awful!’ …I always think back at New York Comic Con, it was at a point early in Book 2 where Korra was kind of going off the rails, and I remember Mike and the writers really wanted this civil war, she’s gonna take it very personally and it’s gonna cloud her judgement, and she’s not making good decisions. And people really didn’t like it, and I remember being interviewed in New York and they were like, ‘People hate Korra… so why did you do it?’ And I was like wow, and like, Aang was like going on a rampage in the middle of the desert beating people up because someone took his bison."

"Bryan: That’s one thing we haven’t cleared up that I wanted to address earlier, but they were still looking into it
Mike: There was no, as far as we know, no correlation between the leaked episodes and them putting it on air with a week’s notice.
Bryan: There’s another factor that we can’t talk about, that’s not really in our realm of expertise.
Mike: Part of it was like, there was a window of opportunity programming wise like we gotta put it on now otherwise we gotta wait till next year.
Bryan: I just wanna talk about the leak thing real quick, because everyone is convinced and we’ve seen people breaking this stuff down, and good online journalism, and the consistent thing everyone things is that it was thrown hastily on air because of the leaks. And even though there are people at Nickelodeon like us and the execs that are close to the show that get really upset, the network doesn’t really care. And they did not leak it, it was actually stolen off the server. And we know that because initially it was reported that the affiliate in Mexico accidentally put it on the website. That’s what was told to us. But they looked into it, and it was not, nothing had ever been uploaded. It had been stolen off the server. Now that was hugely upsetting to us, very upsetting to a lot of people throughout the company. People do care and people do love this show throughout the company in all different departments. But that’s kind of like a mild annoyance I think to the giant network.
Mike: Yeah it doesn’t really dictate their programming policy.
Bryan: I’m sure they weren’t happy about it, you know, but it really did not create the situation. It was something else, it’s not exciting, we can’t talk about it. There was a different reason that the show was being held up, because we were done with Book 3 it was just waiting, and then when that didn’t work they were like, ‘Oh, let’s put it on now,’ and it was hastily done.
Mike: And it was basically a week out from the premiere that we found out and we were like ok well what are we gonna do to like get the word out. Turns out, not very much.
Bryan: One promo.
Mike: And in our opinions it was a bad idea. They wanted it to drive people to the network to people for ratings, so they didn’t put it online at all. So it aired, ratings have been the lowest they’d been for Korra.
Bryan: I’ll be totally fair and honest. Avatar ran from 2005 to 2008. The TV landscape was very different back then. And we were always a prime-time Friday show. It was Friday nights, and it did really well. It didn’t do Spongebob numbers, but it did really well. But we did bump heads with the network a lot about re-runs. They would never re-run it in order, and we said it’s a sequential show, you have to re-run it in order. And they said you know your re-runs just aren’t doing really well, we think it’s because it’s not a comedy. And we said no it’s because it’s not a comedy, you have to run it in order. And for years Mike and I said this, and we had left the company, and we ran into this exec in New York and he said ‘Guys you realize you have the number 1 show on Nicktoons. We play it in order, and it does really well. Turns out when you play it in order, people watch it.’ And at that point it was also doing really well on Netflix. And I think that’s why the show got bigger after it was done."
