januar: from The Legend of Korra: Jinora reading ([korra] jinora)
For the last couple of months, my brother and I have been going and seeing the first showing of a movie each Sunday. Today was the same, but different. Instead of going into the same theater, we went into different ones: he watched "Pacific Rim" and I watched "The Heat".

As we were going into the theater, I said something about how I was quite sure my movie was going to pass all parts of the Bechdel test. My brother, who had never heard of it, became intrigued, and after the movies, looked up info about it. That led to a conversation about different tv shows and anime and whether they passed the test.

All this made me decide to put my newly acquired Avatar the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra dvds to good use. Besides rewatching all the episodes, I'm going to see if each episode passes all to none of the parts of the test.

The qualifications to pass the test completely are:
1) There are two female characters [I like the variance that says they must be named famales, so I'm going to use that version].
2) They have at least one conversation [To me, a conversation has to have back and forth, like gal 1 talks, then gal 2 talks, then gal 1 talks again].
3) The conversation is not about men [This one has always confused me. If they have multiple conversations, does every one of them have to not be about men? Or does just one of them have to be about something other than men? For this I'm going with the second case].

Enought yakking from me. Let's get this show on the road.

Avatar the Last Airbender - Book 1 - Episodes 1-4 )

Episodes 5-8 (and maybe 9-12) tomorrow!
