    Anyone else watch this yet? I powered through it last night, it’s very nostalgic but I really enjoy the mix of the 80’s generation and the current generation.

    We got a lot about John Kreese’s back story and it sets up season 4, which should be interesting. Without spoiling it for anyone, curious on your thoughts.

    I binged watched Season 2 on New Years Eve, and Season 3 on New Years Day.

    I was initially hesitant to watch Cobra Kai because I'm not a fan of nostalgia-driven reboots, but it's so much better than I expected.

    It was great to get John Kreese's back story. It makes him more relatable, and harder to dismiss as just an evil guy.

    I agree 100%. The show mixes nostalgia well and seeing Kreese’s backstory was really cool. It adds a lot of depth to characters that hadn’t been updated since the late 80’s.

    The only thing I’m wondering is with Netflix having purchased up to 6 seasons, and it would appear season 4 will tie into the 3rd movie, as season 3 tied into the second is where will they go in the future? I’m glad they didn’t make season 2 and 3 tournament based as it allowed for some extra character development. All I know is, I’m a huge fan. Can’t wait to see where they bring the series next.

    Oh the waterworks. My favorite part is when Daniel returns to Miyagi San's old fishing town to find it's been turned into a a Red Lobster and GAP retail hub, but the people there are happier than ever. A pre-COVID fantasy.

    I wish that training in martial arts as a teen was as cool and dramatic as Cobra Kai makes it out to be.

    I'm not even a violent person but I find myself wanting to beat Hawk into a pulp, and then I'm ashamed to remind myself he's just a really good actor, like a good wrestling heel.

    I foresee a big showdown between him and some lucky Miyago do student.

    The episode in Se:3 in Okinawa was a favorite of mine.

    Yeah I loved the Karate Kid 2 tie in. It was done in a perfect way and didn’t dominate the entire season.

    Wow. Finished Season 3 last night and I have to say I did not see THAT coming. No spoilers, but...

    The worst part is having to wait a whole other year for Season 4.

    I rewatched the original Karate Kid Trilogy, and even watched The Next Karate Kid (the Hillary Swank version) just to get a bit of a fix. I’m certainly not proud of it, but times are desperate. :D

    I don’t know what I’m going to do until 2022...

    I did the same thing! The only good thing is that it’s been so successful it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere.

    I’m really curious to see if they tie karate kid 3 and how they do it.

    There's no shame in loving the relatively corniness of karate. It doesn't matter which movie and there are far worse than any of the Karate Kid films including the reboot.

    That's part of its charm, it seems so stupid and simple, like wax on and off, but have you ever shaken hands with a professional car washer? They have fists of iron. It's all about the workout you get at the end of the day, and I can't count the number of times this movie franchise got me off my butt on a tired day.

    Seems like a lot of people on line are pushing for it. A lot of the rumor sites say they can tie it in to her being Miyagi’s other student and she could help teach. Miyagi-do and eagle fang.

    Just back up the Netflix money truck at the front door to convince a 2 ep cameo
