Cobra Kai (major spoilers) so who’s seen it?

So who’s watched it?

I LOVED this show and after a few eps our of morbid curiosity, I got my nephew 12, and watched karate kid with him and then started the series again.

It was so fun and I enjoyed the gratuitous use of fan service call backs.

Johnny was awesome.

Tommy going home in a body bag was one of the darkest but funny call backs I’ve seen. Twisted as fuck.

BUT I’ve just seen the last ep of season 2 and for now, it’s ruined it for me. It was so dark. The big battle was too intense for what had been a fun show and what happened to Miguel was sickening. And fuck Kreese.

That aside. If you’re child of the 80s, and loved the movies, this is must see TV.

What the hell? I've never heard of this show? Is this a sequel series to the Karate Kid movies?

Yes. It’s set 34 years after Karate Kid, it stars Ralph Macchio as Danny and William Zabka (the same actor) as Danny’s nemesis Johnny Lawrence. It is littered with gratuitous call backs to all three
original movies and is super fun.

Danny Larusso has a successful car dealership and Johnny is a down on his luck bum This time, there’s no clear good guy/bad guy.

It was initially on YouTube red so went under the radar but has recently had the first two seasons (3rd coming) uploaded to Netflix.

Yeah, it's really good!

One of the producers is Will Smith.

The connection being his kid was a karate kid, too?

It’s probably just a case of him having the rights when he remade it. Don’t let that put you off.

I was right. He had nothing to do with it but the show creators had to get sign off from his company who owned the rights, having acquired them for the remake (which I’ve not seen) so he gets the executive producer credit.

@CobraKaiSeries

“ As Kreese says, "The story is just beginning." Season 3 premieres January 8, 2021 only on @Netflix.
And gear up because Season 4 is officially training to join the fight.
Cobra Kai Never Dies“

Yep, another binger here. I couldn't stop watching it. Every time someone made an appearance, I was screaming, "YES!" I made my daughter watch the originals with me so she could understand why I was excited about seeing Cobra Kai. She even got into the series, somewhat.

Yeah, that one was hard to watch. But the preview for Season 3 gives me hope. What's been interesting to me about this series are the two perspectives of the original movie. Each viewed it in their own way, and it made me watch the original with a different mindset.

That along with the humour has been the highlight. The good guy, bad guy cliche is lazy writing. There was a tongue in cheek YouTube video years ago that pushed the case that Johnny was the victim all along. Hard not to fall in love with his character in this.
