It’s fecking great. I somehow enjoy it more nowI have such great memories of the Karate Kid that I don't think I'll ever watch it again (in case it's horribly dated and ruins my childhood).
"Sweep the leg". The bad sensei was one of the best baddies in the history of cinema.
Take away the Karate Kid connection, and it could stand alone I feel. It is its own beast after the 2nd episode. If you had never seen the movies, all you need to know is "he beat him when he was a kid and stole his girlfriend" but even then, that's explained to you. It's wonderfully done.Best show I’ve watched in 2018. So enjoyed more than season 3 of Narcos (which was great), Altered Carbon, Walking dead (lol), Little big lies (meh), probably a few others I can’t think of.
I’d absolutely loved this to the point I want to watch again. Karate Kid was one of my favourite films growing up though.
It always started solid, just 10 episodes long.... until 10 years later... season 10.I binge watched this on Friday night.
Thought it was going to be cringe af, but I actually liked it a lot with this cobra kai dude and how he handles the new generation of kids. I guess the main appeal would be for people who watched the Karate Kid movies and liked them as it's still about the underdog and has a similar plot. Didn't quite like as much how it ends as it feel very inconclusive but they might do a season 2, at least that's what I think from the ending but aside from that is a solid show and it's just 10 episodes long.
