Anyone else watch this show on Netflix? Apparently, it was on YouTube premium in 2018, but i never had that service. I binge watched the two seasons, and they were pretty entertaining

I watched the first 5 episodes or so and I thought it was alright. I didn't go back to it because YouTube starting charging for access to the episodes. I'll check it out now that it's on Netflix.

We live in Reseda and Netflix comes from The Hills. We're from two different worlds. We try to go to their country clubs thru the kitchen and we get splatted by a waiter with spaghetti.

I watched Season 1 this week mostly as background noise. It’s a charming show! It’s sort of a relic of another time (like Johnny Lawrence himself). Doesn’t feel like a modern sitcom at all.

I watched it the minute it showed up on Youtube Red (which is now Youtube Premium). Any child of the 80s, and by that I mean most likely born in the 70s is doing themselves a disservice not watching it. There's an old thread here on this show.

I completely agree with Ocho. It's realy charming and really manages to capture the "feel" of the 80s. There's an innocence that captures the spirit of that era. Stranger Things also gave me that same vibe.

aside from some painfully long lapses in quality dialogue this is actually a really fun show. i love how they've developed the lawrence character...he's very easy to root for.

The actor who plays Kreese is 74 but Macchio seems to have aged much, much more than he has.

has there been any confirmation that Elizabeth Shue will be in Season 3? I have seen hints, but nothing official. It will be a huge letdown if the Ali Mills character is not integrated into the series.

curious how anyone would feel about getting someone to play Mr. Miyagi since Pat Morita has passed? It would probably be too last since the passing of Mr. Miyagi has already been discussed on the show.

Ali's cblocker friend (sassy brunette one) grew up to be Sarah Sanders: "Sheee shouldn't HAVE TO, should she?..." She was the most detestable teenage girl character since Nellie from Little House.

If Zabka can nab a dramatic role in a big movie, he will officially have pulled a Brolin. Or, to a lesser extent, he could pull off a Jackie Earle Haley. He needs to be hired to work for a director with the clout to use any "hasbeened" name and make them instantly buyable on the director's own merits (SS, Kubrick-in the past, QT, Coens...) Modine as Joker, e.g. his best role, fresh from teen movies. His character in VisionQuest in 85 was similar ways to Joker in 87.

I like what they did with Billy Zabkas character. They’re doing a pretty good job at fleshing out his humanity. I kind of like him more tan LaRusso now. Plus Zabka’s a pretty good actor. Too bad he got mostly type cast as bland 80s bully (Karate Kid and Back to School).

I think my favorite thing about this show is that every teenager in the valley knows karate, and all of their disagreements are solved by karate fights in public places. As if that’s a thing.

Maybe a director out there with a soft spot for Karate Kid gives Zabka a shot the way Tarantino did with John Travolta.

It was very elegantly done. Nothing innovative but they executed it perfectly.

Yeah, it's one of those rare occasions where the reboot doesn't try to retcon the original, instead it actually adds to the story.

trust me...if you are 6 years old growing up in Appalachia, you do assume that everyone in this paradise known as Reseda knows karate, spends every evening on the beach at a bonfire with hot chicks and riding rad dirt bikes...

there was a time when you like LaRusso's character more? I think I always liked Zabka's character more....maybe not when i was 6 years old seeing it for the first time, but soon after I came to the conclusion if that was reality, Johnny Lawrence would have left the All Valley Tournament with Ali and the trophy.

Tootie cameo in one ep. Lookin youngish. No cracking. Kove at 74. Not shabby for common American male death age. His special ops work since 1984 didn't get him killed.

If anything, Cobra Kai does much better than Karate Kid at fleshing out Johnny’s character. I particularly liked the ep where it flashbacks to kid Johnny rocking out to some Boston after going through some (bleep) at home, and then stumbles upon Kreese’s dojo.

Just finished all the Cobra Kais. And KK1 is on telly rite now too. I love how it's made the 84 (and only) truly original version the one that gets played now instead of the 2010 BS one.

I chuckled when the bodybag guy got zipped up in a bodybag in Cobra Kai. Harr harr. He really does look like he has cancer, hope that was just makeup.

Rob Garrison (Tommy) passed away in September of last year due to kidney and liver complications.
