So has anyone checked out the new Cobra Kai series on Youtube Red yet? I'll admit, I binge watched all 10 episodes in a day, it was like one long Karate Kid movie! My only beef is that they ramped the sexual jokes and foul language way up from the originals, so my hope of watching this show with my daughter will have to be put on hold until she's a bit older. It's a shame too, because she loves the three original Karate Kid movies. I think you can watch the first two episodes without the Red subscription too, but if you haven't signed up for Red before you get the first month free, so if you like the first two episodes theoretically you can watch all 10 for free.

I have watched all 10 episodes twice now. Aside from the language and off color jokes you already talked about I liked it A LOT! I was hoping to watch it with my girls (both 10 yo) but decided to hold off on that for now. But over all I liked it and hope for more. Think it was done well with just enough call backs and cheese while keeping it fresh. Feels like a lot of love and respect went into it.

One thing that I thought was funny and had to Google was a scene where the airbag in his Firebird deploys. I was like airbags in an 80’s sports car? From what I could tell they only put airbags in the 90-92 models. Not a real timeline killer though... it’s possible he got the car in his early 20’s and just never let go, but you can see the intent of the show is to have Johnny firmly planted in the 80’s. Maybe he bought it in 89? Ahh details... they always seem to pop up in nostalgia shows.

Take my money YouTube! I’ll be there!

HAHA I will wait until then to sign up for red. I didn't this time around. Don't judge or hate me but a buddy of mine sent me the show to watch. Looking back maybe I should have signed up for RED to support the show in hopes for more but that is all under the bridge now. Either way the way I look at it, YouTube cut my partnership and never gave me the $35 I "earned" on there over the past 5 years so we are even. LOL

I love the Karate Kid movies. I used to watch them all the time when I was younger. I might check out this show sometime.

 

Also it looks the bad boy of Karate Mr. Mike Barnes from KK part 3 is going to be in season 2!!!!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's kept ambiguous enough that it still works in the continuity of my fanedit from awhile back. I made it so that the events of the third film happen before the events of the second film, and it was hard work because I had to remove contradictory information, and now that this show is out (which I had no way of knowing it would exist back when I made my fanedit), I have to worry about continuity issues again. Haha. Oh well, maybe I can fanedit the show someday too.
