    Cobra Kai



    Idk, looks like it could fall anywhere between corny as shit and pretty funny, but I grew up with this and so they've got me on the hook for at least the first episode.

    I have been screaming about this show on Facebook and have mostly been ignored. I'm excited for this! Looks like fun. I just wish Mr. Miyagi was still around to see his prized student become a slimeball. That would have been great.

    I’ve watched the first two episodes and I’m totally down for this. It’s pure cheese and there are already a ton of coincidences which tie all the characters together. But they’ve taken LaRusso’s insufferable positivity and found a way to make his arch nemesis someone you can root for. Neither man has the perfect life and it’ll be interesting to see where they take the characters.

    10 episodes only lasting 30 mins each isn’t a huge commitment and so far the show has that earnest and straightforward 80s vibe which is refreshing. It felt a bit simplistic at first and overly fixated on the movie with all the clips...but then Johnny laid the smack down on a bunch of bullies and I was completely on board.

    Love that Johnny is the face and Danny is the heel. I'm thinking by the end Danny will sell this Car dealership he has. Danny and Johnny then run new Cobra Kai together teaching Miyagi methods. Feel good moment had by all. I've been looking forward to this for awhile.

    If that showdown in the dojo in episode 2 didn't sell you on this show, then I don't know what will. That shit was so fucking cool.

    Watched all the episodes.

    Bit of a mixed bag. The nostalgia plays well enough, the kid acting isn't too distracting. However im not 100 percent on board with the more humorous approach the show takes, because the films really didn't play much for humor. I mean there was charm sure, but the humor wasn't overly used. My guess is with Pat Morita long dead, they probably wanted to try a different approach, or it could be something they chose without any side factor.

    For what it is, I think it works well enough. I do think based on the ending to the first season that it might run out of steam fast and go from something mostly grounded in a believable reality to just being a show relying solely on nostalgia to tells its story. Hopefully not.

    Been loving this all the way through episode 7. The character connections and opposing angles from the original have been fun while still being an easily digestible 'page-turner'. And especially the humor, gags and one-liners by Johnny have been hitting all along. Then just finished episode 8 ... and the end of that one was kind of a bummer. Gonna finish the last two in the next day or so, and so we'll see how it goes, but that was a pretty difficult leap to suspend disbelief for. Hope they tie that junk up nice and quick and get back to the formula heading into the tournament.

    Saw the trailer earlier and I'm sold. I love the way they pulled off the double turn.

    Loved this series, just wish it was on netflix and not Youtube Red. The setup for all the characters had me hooked, but I couldn't help but feel like the tournament came out of nowhere. They set it up, but then other things happened and this it was "Oh yeah tournament, over."

    Looking forward to season 2



    And just for nostalgia.

    Not like it wasn't a given due to the critical acclaim, but confirmation is confirmation...

    I ended up binge watching this last night. Really fun and entertaining show, and the writing was cheesy at points but also really solid. I thought the stories were told rather well and Zabka did a tremendous job as Johnny. Looking forward to the twists and turns they can create going forward.

    Absolutely loving this so far. I'm up to the seventh episode. I thought this would be fun nostalgia and it has been but it's also turning out to be a genuinely good and interesting TV show.

    When I could see him pulling up, I had a feeling that's where they were going. I knew then I had to brace myself lol. The show wasn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought it was so well done.

    6 episodes in. Fun to watch, but I don't see myself ever re-watching it. Having the premade characters ready to go has definitely made it better.

    Cobra Kai,” a TV offshoot of the “Karate Kid” film franchise, has outperformed all of its streaming competition, according to data provided to Variety by Parrot Analytics for the week of May 6-12, including Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why” and “Arrested Development,” as well as Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

    Everyone seems to love this for sure. I've seen episodes 1-3 and I'm not sold so far. I really enjoy seeing Johnny and Daniel again though, it's the younger cast that's not convincing me. They feel kind of goofy, like some Disney teenage high school comedy or something.

    I just finished it today, thoroughly enjoyed it. Would love to see Elisabeth Shue back next season.

    I really enjoyed watching every episode of it. I thought the new and old characters gelled real well and the storyline was great, although a little rushed. Of course, what do you expect with only ten episodes?

    I do have a question though... when does Hillary Swank come in with her bringing a third dojo into the mix?

    Probably towards the end. Haven't seen any episodes but I'm impressed w/ the double turn.
