Lots of 80's nostalgia, music, references. A terrific homage to the original movies. Very funny, too, a lot funnier than I thought it would be, but with right mix of humor and drama, and action, of course. I got the sense that the writers had a ton of respect for the characters and their stories.

I didn't plan on watching anything more than the first two free episodes, but they were so good that I signed up for YouTube Red and binge-watched the whole first season.

about where Season 2 is headed?


Well Johnny is clearly regretting his teaching methods. LaRusso is going to open a karate Class with Robby and his daughter as the prized pupils. Maybe Miguel's nerdy friend joins LaRusso.


I think Johnny will join LaRusso and find balance, but Miguel will remain with Cobra Kai. Also, Johnny will become the Sensai of Muyagi Do Karate, because lets face it, Daniel has a car dealership empire to run.

Without spoiling anything, that would be an interesting turn of events, considering how the first season ended.

I heard some rumors that Sean Kanan may be brought in for the 2nd season. Don't know how credible they are, though.

Johnny will eventually join LaRusso at some point probably by bringing Johnny and Robby together. What happens with Creasy (spelling?). Johnny owns Cobra Kai and is here really going to allow this man back into it? I think he will for some reason and that will temporary ruin any goodwill between LaRusso and Johnny as LaRusso will think that he hasn't changed.
i would love to see

a hillary swank cameo too.. many folks forget, there was a spinoff movie called "The Next Karate Kid" that was in 94. Pretty much the same story but Miyagi trains a girl this time. I doubt it happens..but would love it if it did.. a real nod to true fans.
Where is Mike Barnes, the Bad Boy of Karate, or Terry Silver?

aka Tomas Ian Griffith doesn't act too much anymore according to his IMDB page but he does write and co-produce the series Grimm, which I don't watch but many people love.

I could see her showing up in season 2. I really hope that they don't start bringing back every character from the three movies. Creasy is fine but the other guys like Terry Silver and Barnes would be too much IMO. They had a very nice blend of nostalgia sprinkled into season one. I hope they don't begin to force it in season 2.
Another thing I like about this series...  
Klaatu : 5/9/2018 1:02 pm : link
Is that it seems to appeal to older fans like me, who have fond memories of the movies, and also to younger viewers who might not be too familiar with them.

I was talking with my youngest nephew about it, who was a little kid when the first movie came out on VHS. I bought him a Karate Kid action figure for his birthday (and I used to goof on him when he was little, saying "Marc, do karate," after which he'd start chopping and kicking the air).

Anyway, in addition to the 80's stuff, there was some fun ribbing of us older folks, with the social media jibes for example. Again, a good job by the writers.

Oh yeah...and Courtney Henggeler is a total smokeshow.

She has been in some clunkers over the years, no doubt. Have you seen Hamlet 2? (Don't waste your time if you haven't). Recently, I've noticed her in a few supporting roles in some decent movies. Off the top of my head, she was the mother in Chasing Mavericks and Steve Carrell's wife in Battle of the Sexes.

Yup. I hope she and Johnny get together.

But my favorite character is Miguel's grandmother. She has some of the best lines.

Isn't Sheldon's twin sister on a few episodes of The Big Bang Theory too?
I remember her playing his sister in one episode.

But I stopped watching that show a while ago.

Now she's gone from playing the Hot Sister to playing a MILF, lol.

OK  
Jay on the Island : 5/9/2018 1:43 pm : link
if Sean Kenan is going to be on then I think next season will see Creasy and Kenan force out Johnny from Cobra Kai. Johnny will then fall into a drunken depression until he is saved by LaRusso and Robby and then he joins Miyagi Do. Miguel will remain in Cobra Kai until the end where he sees what he has become and decides to switch over.

Its Kreese.
Jay, it's Kreese, not Creasy.

Creasy was Denzel Washington's character in Man on Fire. :)

Check out his Twitter page below. His image is now a Cobra Kai Logo, and he has pictures posted with Kreese..

Terry Silvers on the other hand is all political bullshit. I don't see any reason why he couldn't make an appearance of some sort.

Side note, I looked up the type of Karate Miyagi teaches, and it was founded by a Japanese person named Miyagi. Never realized that before.

I'm going out on a limb and saying Kreese owns the rights to Cobra Kai Karate, so Johnny either has to role with Kreese or leave.

It's corny in spots, but overall it is a nice mixture of nostalgia, comedy, and drama, flipping the roles of the characters from the original (Johnny as the outcast loser, Daniel as the successful glamor boy) while not actually changing the basic nature of the characters. Johnny's still pretty much a dick, Daniel is still whiny.
Thanks, BBDTS.

I mean no one but Daniel really knows about Chozen, so Cobra Kai wouldn't know to even contact him.


However, one way to incorporate him would be to use him as an example of going from the dark side to the light side. At the end of Karate Kid 2 he came to senses and flipped sides.
