Cobra Kai - YouTube Red
« on: May 04, 2018, 07:47:45 AM »
Don't know if anyone has seen this yet, but I watched the first two episodes on YouTube last night and it's actually pretty cool. Looks like I'll have to get the free 30 day trial of YouTube Red to binge the rest because I really enjoyed the first two episodes.

But in all seriousness, that looks fucking incredible. I LOVE Karate kid and that Jaden smith shit can take a walk. Its always been Johnny vs Daniel son

I've also watched the first two episodes, it's great! I will also take the 30 day trial to binge the rest of the season. Looks really promising!

Signed up for the free trial. Six episodes in and this is a really good show. The Johnny character is freaking hilarious and itís odd how Iíve found myself totally rooting for him and thinking Daniel is a complete dick.

I love how it subverts the original relationship. Now Dan is the dick and johnny is the underdog in a way. I also got the free trial and am halfway done.

I absolutely love the show. Karate kid was one of my favorite movies growing up and I can't believe how well this show came out. Its super surreal, and was a roll of the dice. But they won big. Its great.

Just finished the whole series and I am speechless. That was really something special. A lot of really beautiful, touching stuff going on.

hell yeah there is  :metal

I seriously thought this would be one and done, but season 1 ends both in a satisfying manor and in a manor that could set up for a very solid season 2. So either way, its win win.

Just finished it. Wow. Like you Phoenix Iím pleasantly surprised at how good this came off. Just really well done. I think they absolutely set up a season two. Thereís plenty to build off of and explore.

Itís about 5 hours of content so easily doable.

Yeah, I did in over two nightshifts at work. And the episodes are like 30 mins each, so its not bad at all.

I have to admit, I got kinda of teary eyed with the Miyagi flashbacks and then it would cut to Daniel now training his new student with the old music coming in  :heart   Really beautiful stuff.

There were several moments throughout that were 'teary eyed' moments. It was so unexpected. I know we've been saying it a lot in this thread but I was just caught off guard at how 'good' the series was. I'm not trying to make it out as the second coming of Breaking Bad or something like that....but I was really expecting something along the lines of a 'straight to DVD' type show....something way less involved and character driven. But this really nailed the story and it has some serious relationship/character driven themes. They just did a really good job with it. It could have been a disaster but I think they captured something good.

So, after having had huge success, apparently a season 2 has been approved and its coming out 2019.

My body is ready

Finished this Sunday, Loved it. I really think it was well done without being too hokie. If season 2 is not until 2019, I guess I'll cancel my 30 day free trial and try to get it back next year.
