Of course! ^^ Thanks for going ahead and making it, I'm surprised there wasn't one sooner.
Bolin is definitely one of my favorite characters in the show, and I really like how PJ Byrne voices him as well. It definitely seems like Bolin is the most expressive of the group, and usually gets the funniest lines. Really adorable.
It was touched on a little bit back in episode 3 of him trying to do things on his own / not have Mako take care of everything for him, so I'll be curious to see if that will be brought back up for end of this season, or if that character arc will be saved for Book 2.

Good to see another Bolin fan here and thanks. Yah PJ Byrne I think is one of the best voice actors in this series, he does Bolin Gold. His Voice actor said he'd be doing a lot of growing up next season so I assume they'll be saving a lot of it for than. However in the finale preview they have Bolin fighting alone some reason, am curious about that. We have one more episode before finale =]

Aw, yay. I hope that Bolin and the other characters get some much needed fleshing out over the next season. I think Bolin has a lot of potential, but I haven't felt a strong connection with his character.
I'd like to see Lin take Bolin under her wing now that her bending is gone. It would be awesome to see him carry on Lin's legacy.
Well, the Avatar people did say he'd be a really strong earthbender next season. Maybe we will all get our wish with this? I can see Lin giving Bolin some pointers on earthbending, even without her earthbending powers. Heck, I still think she can teach him metalbending ^

I fell in love with Bolin within about three minutes. He's such a sweetheart, and such an innocent and nice guy. And I think it's adorable how he wears his heart on his sleeve. He's like an affectionate puppy. I too am excited to see how his character develops in the coming season. Like others have mentioned, it seems like a lot of the characters aren't fully developed yet.
I love Bolin. For some reason, I find him more appealing as a comedic character than Sokka. It's unfortunate that he doesn't get much character development due to the show's pacing.
Maybe because Bolin was designed as a funny character from the start, but Sokka was designed serious but only changed into a goofball because of improvisation from his voice actor?
There is definitely a better flow with Bolin than Sokka.
The reason that Sokka was --and still is-- my favorite character is because of the fact that he's so multifaceted. Often in TV shows and movies, the comedic character's job is to play the fool, period. And I love how even though Sokka can be completely ridiculous at times, he is obviously incredibly smart and logical and fiercely protective of the people he cares about. I don't feel like he changed from one type of character to another throughout the series. Even into season three we saw him taking charge, making plans, and being very serious when he needed to be. To me, the different aspects of his character made him seem very real.
But I also like the fact that Bolin is so different from Sokka and has his own, softer personality. I adore them both. And now I really, really want to cosplay as Bolin at some point. Too bad he's so buff and manly-looking, and I'm so...not. But I did get to hug a really great Bolin cosplayer this weekend, so that's almost as good.

I usually don't like the 'comedic' character as much as I like other ones (even Sokka), but I really enjoy Bolin. I think a lot of it is how innocent he seems. He has really had a tough life growing up and yet he is rarely without a smile. Mako really did a great job of shielding his brother from some of the harsh realities of life. Of course that makes Bolin a little too trusting as well. I was real glad to see him do some serious fighting in the finale though. I hope he continues on this path of proving himself. I think be will benefit from getting out from under Mako's wing a little in season two.
Some of my favorite scenes with Bolin though are when he is interacting with Pabu. I'm such a sucker for guys that have a soft spot for animals.

I like that he has a good heart and forgives people, he doesn't hold a grude on people like Korra or Mako what they did to him early in season 1 he forgave them. Plus yah his love for animals. I really see metalbending in season 2 ^
I love Bolin. He is so sweet and kind and always has a good attitude about everything. (Spoilers!)Like when Korra had lost her bending he tried to make it better that she had unlocked her airbending, but it doesn't always help.
Ok people are going to think I'm weird, but my favorite all time character is Lin Bei Fong. I'm a lot like her, and I love her. She is like a super woman. She is my hero too!
I love Bolin. He's such a sweetie. It was sad to see him relegated to one-liners and comic relief for half the season. I wish I could have seen more brotherly interaction between him and Mako throughout the show.
