Too much love triangle and less kung fu than the first. Also blood bending was in the first series too, so nothing too new there.
About the lieutenant, it was pretty unclear I'm going to say knocked out though. Kinda wished we had more backstory on him.
I would hardly say anything was neatly wrapped up, it all seemed pretty rushed, what with the whole WELL THEY FOUND OUT I'M A BENDER BETTER GIVE UP AND START A NEW LIFE.
Not to mention the whole suddenly learning how to airbend out of nowhere, no one explaining how Amon could bloodbend away someones bending.
We were all waiting for Korra to go into the avatar state the whole time, what with Mako about to lose his bending, but nope, he shoots lightning at Amon and does more damage to him than anyone has done in the show previously. It seemed more like I was watching The Legend of Mako the whole time.
Plus they spent a good amount of the series focusing on Bolin and Mako, only to make Bolin irrelevant by the end. They should have focused more on Amon's backstory, or the lieutenants backstory, really, anything would probably be better than the love triangle.
They also made Lin's sacrifice completely moot since the air benders were captured anyways
Metal benders, stop trying to use metal bending on the guys that have lightning gloves, it didn't work the first time, it wont work now.
Don't get me started on the Deus Ex Machina of Korra suddenly learning all of her bending again.
Also that's a nice tip of the hat that you gave Iroh, Zuko's voice actor, but its completely out of place.
