One of the best-written series ever made. Amazingly it manages to pay tribute to the movie (and the 80s) while poking fun at it. And characters' growth are exceptional. A funny, fantastic series.

I loved this series and canít wait for season 2. That final scene from the last episode!

Cheesy nostalgia at its best.

I actually really enjoyed it. The trailers for it made me think that it was just going to be nothing but jokes and shitting on the original's legacy, etc., and while there is some of that, it still is respectful and pays homage. When they are ribbing on things it's done in a loving way, and it is much more respectful of the original movie than the trailers would lead you to believe.

The two freebies and the previews just aren't selling me.

TBH, Karate Kid in general isn't a crown jewel of my childhood. Yeah, I enjoyed it, but it's no Rocky or Superman. No real call for a continuation or sequel.

Hell, I was more on board for those Steet Fighter post tournament fan films years ago, with Zangief running an arcade. Or even that SF Legacy fan film.. And I don't even like Street Fighter.

And this doesn't come anywhere near the quality of those Mortal Kombat YouTube videos. More of an SNL sketch then anything (How I hate SNL..)

I actually have about zero nostalgia for it as well. I just legitimately enjoyed Cobra Kai enough that that didn't matter. I don't think nostalgia for the original is a pre-req. Knowing the basics of the plot(s) certainly helps, though.

But no show will be for everybody.

I have some nostalgia for the movie, plus the video game. I've seen the first episode only cuz I think you need to pay to see the rest.

But at one point Johnny says Daniel won that final point via an illegal move. Was that true?

"USANKF Sport Karate Rules (which the All Valley Karate Tournament would have most certainly been using) Article 8 states: "Traditional Karate techniques delivered full-power can cause extremely serious injury, even death. Karate competition is a sport, and for that reason some of the most dangerous techniques are banned and all techniques must be controlled." The crane kick is not only considered a dangerous technique - but Daniel completed it full force, with zero restraint or control. Boom - disqualified."

When I initially heard this show was happening, my only thought was, "Why? Just why?" But based on all the positive things I have been reading across various sites, I might actually have to give it a go.

I had the same thought, but I gave it a chance and it was pleasantly surprising. It's a nice twist that the bully from the first film gets a lot of focus and is the one doing the training of the young bullied kid.

In the trailer while Johnny was at Daniels dealership one of the workers asks Danny if that was the guy who's ass he kicked to which Daniel replied that he technically kicked his face. Johnny says that it was an illegal kick. Danny then says right before you gave me an illegal elbow. Johnny comes back says that he lost a point with his move and Daniel won the fight with his illegal kick.

Johnny has a point. It's also interesting if you watch the show to hear Johnny's perspective of the events of the original Karate Kid movie. Johnny thinks Daniel started it all by throwing the first punch.

If you ship Hawk and Moon, they become "Hawkmoon"... or "Moonhawk". Both of which sound like a totally awesome 80's cartoon character. Like someone who would fight with the ThunderCats!
