    Cobra Kai

    Just finished the series on YouTube and wow is it good. Way better than the old remake for sure. So good to see why Johnny is the way he was and his point of view as to the events of Karate Kid as well. I can't wait till season 2, although the cliff hanger doesn't make sense. Anybody else binge on this this weekend?!

    Loved it. It was everything The Last Jedi should have been. It respects everything that came before it and builds upon it.

    I signed up for the free trial just to watch it. I would never subscribe though...there's not anything else wotth subscribing for.

    It reall was respectful of the past and was a perfect way to build upon the story. I really hope it comes out on blu ray as I want it in the collection for sure. It also made me revisit the original for the first time in a few years.

    It has been renewed. I'm so excited about the future of Karate Kid. I could care little about the future of Star Wars. It shouldn't be that way. I wish Disney had taken a page from the creators of this series.

    I too am excited for the renewal. I do wonder about a bluray release though. Im not going to keep my YouTube red as this show really is the only thing on it worth watching lol. I wish Netflix had gotten the show honestly. I know Amazon and Netflix both bid for it and got out bid by YouTube. At least with Netflix we would guarantee a home release. Guess we'll see soon. Maybe thats where Sony comes in.

    I pray for a Blu-ray release of this, but their Facebook page responded that YouTubeRed will be the only place to see it. Hopefully that changes in time. Really sucks, though.

    The actor who plays Mike Barnes (from Karate Kid Part 3, and was mentioned in Cobra Kai) has confirmed that he is returning in Season 2. I'd imagine Terry Silver will return as well (he was mentioned in Cobra Kai as well).

    Man, I wish I felt half this excitement for Star Wars right now.

    I agree. How sad is that for SW?

    I really enjoyed this series. I canít recommend this enough. Lucas Film can learn a lot from this.

    You can sign up for a week trial, bang out all 10 episodes on a rainy day then cancel if you donít want to sign up for another monthly payment. Once you start watching youíll settle right in to bing watch this anyway.

    The surprise though I'm sure itll get explained in season 2. I read an article from the writers that addressed it

    Pretty sure it was meant to be open-ended. I know I'm curious as hell as to where that will go.

    I thought this was really good! Great storytelling, writing and cast, with just the right amount of humour and nostalgia. I cant recommend it enough.

    I take it from the trailer that this series ignores The Next Karate Kid?

    No mention of it or the remake. Only Parts 2 and 3.

    I always thought that Daniel LaRusso was the father of Julie Pierce, whose parents died in a car accident before the events of The Next Karate Kid.

    Quite a bit. His presence is felt throughout, and his teachings are a major part of the theme of the show. It's handled very well all around.

    Episode 5 is where he is "felt" the most, easily. Very well done.

    Only one episode in, but I’m impressed. They easily could have done a really sloppy job to grab as many dollars as quickly as possible, but they’re making a real series.

    The way this series is handled, and its reverence for Parts 2 and 3, it makes you (or some at least, myself included) value those movies more. They all fit into the storytelling and characters from Parts 2 and 3 are coming back for Season Two of Cobra Kai.

    Happy for this show:
