Cobra Kai - Season 4 in the Can!
Posted 22 June 2020 - 06:39 PM
i pretty much got Youtube Premium just to watch Cobra Kai when the first season dropped nd ended up really loving some of the other YT shows like IMPULSE and especially WAYNE...im said to hear youtube not doing anymore shows....i also kinda likes the LIZA show.
ill still keep paying for youtube....mostly so i dont ever see any ads. which is well worth 9.99
I see behind a thousand lies that you try to hide
I bleed inside: you left your knife but I'm still alive
I...love the way you kill me
I love the way you watch me die
Life or death a bullet to the chest
I'd do it again...
Just when I think I've cut you out
You come with open arms to drag me down

I just started watching season 1, but it's quite entertaining show. Like it
Sweep the leg Johnny!
Seriously, the show is great, especially if you grew up watching the movies. I still need to see the last two, as I haven't seen them since they were out on VHS.

i dont see how you were able to wait a year. i finished it in one day. i got addicted fast lol
I watched 2 episodes when they were free. It might have been TWO years ago. I live in a time warp with a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old. I bought the DVD when I saw it was released and it went on the shelf waiting for a turn. The announcement about Netflix brought it back to mind and my wife liked it better than she thought she would. Now we have a couple weeks until we can watch Season 2. But I think I will watch Karate Kid soon. I did watch it once as a grownup, but it has been over a decade.

I watched the first two in the last year, and enjoyed them. I still haven't gone back to watch the third film though.
I watched 2 when I watched 1. Probably about the time the Jackie Chan movie came out. I haven't seen 3 since I saw it in the theater.
Edit - I just read the wiki synopsis of 3. It just sounds boring to me. I don't remember it being that interesting when I was 11 either. But apparently the apartments from 1 are getting torn down in 3. They put them back up some time for Cobra Kai...

I guess the deal didn't work out that well for the owner.
I have seen parts of the third film, but I don't think that I have ever seen all of it.
My Dad took my brother and I to Karate Kid, Part 2 in the theater and I loved it. I didn't see the first one until some years later, but kids at school talked about it a lot. When 3 came out I was 11 and my brother was 14 and they actually let us watch it by ourselves. But we didn't like it. My parents went to UHF while we watched it and they talked about it a lot afterward. I always wished I had gone with them.

The first season is just really craftily done and I'm impressed. It does trip over a few tropes I would have avoided, but all in good fun. I was just thinking about Sid just now. On the first episode, we know Johnny is just a washed out loser and though Sid is a little gruff, I felt for him in the situation. He's just so tired of taking care of a grownup loser, but he helps him one last time. 10 episodes later and we know he's just a terrible bully with so much money he doesn't mind using it to lord over people. Johnny is Johnny. The show doesn't pretend like he's a misunderstood angel. He makes mistakes. Plenty of them. But it turns out he has a heart, feels regrets, owns mistakes, and has always hoped to do the right thing. For a moment I felt like he was a hypocrite in the last match, but I then I recalled that he didn't really want to sweep the leg. He felt terrible about it at the time, but his sensei ordered it and he did it. I just think it is really great that they make him the protagonist without white washing or pretending. He is still a recovering bully and he still doesn't have stuff figured out.
I'm impressed with Ralph Macchio too. I think Johnny is the better actor, but Ralph Macchio, as executive producer, agreed to play a Daniel that isn't a white knight. Daniel was never perfect in the Karate Kid, but he had the writers clearly on his side. Grownup Daniel is self-absorbed, spoiled, and cannot let bygones go. But it honestly isn't an assassination of the character, I think. It's a completely believable extension of the Karate Kid. But Ralph Macchio was brave to go along with it. It would have been no surprise to me if an actor, known for little else than this 80s role, balked at this treatment. But I think he was actually a part of making it up.

I watched Karate Kid today and it deepened my appreciation for Cobra Kai. Daniel had a better teacher and that made all the difference. He is hothead, ready to get in fights, ready to cause some trouble, rushes in without thinking. You can see humanity several times in Johnny. Johnny and Daniel in Cobra Kai are very organic extensions of their characters from Karate Kid.

Yup. The whole show kind of runs with this thesis.
Also, this is a pretty cool video they made recently:
