When Iroh appeared again and starting giving his wisdom to Korra I just started tearing up.

Goddamn feels.

Time for my opinion of the shows:

LoK is great. I like the show a lot, but it wasn't as 'touching' as ATLA. It might be because I was younger during ATLA and it's the original, but I was disappointed with a couple things in LoK.

The Avatar State. In ATLA, the Avatar State was such an emotional and spiritual incident. When Aang lost Oppa in the desert he was so upset that he couldn't control himself and the Avatar State just happened. It was about emotional control and how powerful this state can be when he wasn't controlling these emotions. Katara risked her life and grabbed his arm. That was an amazing scene.

Korra uses the Avatar State to win races against Jinora.

Lightning. Again, the use of lightning in ATLA was an emotional and 'touching' incident. It was rare; only for the strong hearted. Iroh didn't even want Zuko to ATTEMPT it because of how dangerous it was.

Now any fire bender can use it.

I understand that LoK is like an "industrial revolution" of bending (as well as industry), but where's the emotion? Where's the heart that the characters put in themselves in ATLA?

No matter how many feels I get from LoK, it's just not the same.

I haven't actually seen the second season of Korra, but I'm going to base what I'm going to say off another show, namely Ranma 1/2. It's not a very serious show, but there are "emotion" based attacks which link into what 'ATLA' used with the avatar state / lightning bending.   
   
Aang is very spirtual and avatar state became tied into his anger and depression because they were his strongest emotions; the rest of his emotions that could start up the avatar state, such as a drive to be better than anyone, were pushed down due to his training. His happiness and love only pushed the avatar state away.   
   
Korra, however, is very self centered, at least from what I gathered in season 1. Not completely rude, but she is very confident in her abilities until they explode in her face. Only air bending, which was to make yourself aware of the world around you, gave her trouble because she was so focused on her own image.   
   
This is why she can use the avatar state at will after reaching it once, because her strongest emotions revolve around herself. She /wants/ to win badly, with every fiber of her being, and connects to the avatar state through those emotions. Aang wanted to find Appa, with every fiber of his being, but his anger and depression effected his mind, making him unable to stop the state.   
   
As for lightning bending, I'd say it's probably taught to all fire benders at an early age due to the increase in electrical usage. This would be for jobs and for safety. I can't say for certain what emotions tie into lightning bending, I don't really remember Iroh's explanation, but if you're taught something at an early age, the state you were in when you learned it tends to stick with you. They probably teach the children to level their emotions so they can bend lightning completely out of reflex.   
   
Or at least that's what I think.

I know it isn't the same series, but I always think of Wash, "I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar"

People bitched about Korra leaving the spirit portal open but now Iroh and Zuko have a very real possibility to talk. I would watch several episodes based just around that.

The new VA sounds a little Mexican doing Iroh. Not that I'm complaining, I mean no one can do Mako as good as Mako, but I was always kind of expecting him to drop a "mang" or something.
