    Is this show really that good or is this just nostalgia?

    Mostly nostalgia. The first few episodes of Season 1 were pretty good but series has been kind of meh since then. It was much better when it focused on Johnny, Daniel is so much less interesting a character.

    Whole interesting angle was that Johnny was a misunderstood guy in the first movie, tbh. Daniel would have been a good side character, trying to constantly stop Cobra Kai from returning, not sharing the spotlight with Johnny. They had a good formula, kind of disappointed Kreese didn't end up changing his ways too

    Yah. More Johnny, less high school kids.

    I'm not. I like Kreese still being an asshole. Like Mickey from Ray Donovan

    Kreese’s backstory
    That tease at the end was telegraphed pretty hard, but satisfying nonetheless.

    Overall I liked season 3, but all of the inexplicable alliance switching started to get old.

    Haven't finished but it's good so far

    I'd say it is a bit better than s2, obviously not as good as s1. Season 4 will be 100% Netflix made I figure so I dunno if it'll be any good, tbh.

    Definitely an improvement from Season 2, but itís so uneven imo. The Johnny/Miguel friendship is easily the best part of the show, and of course all the Johnny/Daniel/Kreese scenes. But all the other kids are annoying as , and Johnnyís son is so incredibly stupid and poorly written (and the actor is dog ).

    That's who I was talking about earlier. Hawk at least shows a little remorse when he's being an asshole at times. Robby makes no sense. They should have just written him off the show once he went to juvie and brought him back once they figured out how to use him. I mean, why is he even doing karate any more if he's trying to distance himself from Johnny and Daniel?

    edit: And what was the point in trying to humanize Tory at the beginning of the season (worried about making rent, getting arrested, etc because she was trying to care for her sick mom) if she was going to have no issue taking part in criminal behavior later?

    It kind of sucks that they wrote out Aisha, because other than Miguel and maybe Samantha, she was one of the only relatable characters.

    Got around to finishing, predictable but good finale - better than the injury cliffhanger of s2.

    Pros
    - Lots of fan service like season 1
    - Some good character development and redemption arcs going around
    - Kreese backstory was welcome
    - The overall direction is clear unlike s2
    - Robby got less time than other seasons

    Cons
    - Too much time on minor characters, 75% needs to be on Johnny & Miguel
    - The whole dojo aliegience change constantly happening is getting old
    - Robby hasn't died
    - Little too much drama and story, it's not really an intelligent show
    - Who knows where Netflix will take it

    It seems like season 4 will be the last, unless they pull the focus back to Johnny + Miguel and introduce a new villain.

    Just watched the first 3 episodes of season 1

    i dno, itís super cheesy, and feels like itís just made to pander to boomers. Whole show just seems to be painting kids as ridiculous stereotypes, like the cool kids being jerks and everybody else and staff being SJWs. Johnny brushing off asthma as weakness, etc

    Walked around in a daze after seeing her on that couch. It was pitch perfect. My son knew, had seen it and didn't tell me. "Pops, don't cry."

    She wasn't his girl. She was his girl. There on the dance floor at the club he was going to break (that moment) and be the boy she'd always wanted and dreamn't him to be...he was finally ready to "talk." Who appears in his LOS? Daniel in the goddamn kitchen door.

    Handled well. That's all there is. There can be no more. Now "Johnny" knows.
    And Mrs. Daniel handles it well there. Doesn't grudge her husband that crusher moment.

    There was a in '61 that said "television is a vast wasteland." The dumb didn't know from apple butter.

    Gen Xers were the kids watching Karate Kid over and over. That's the target audience for Cobra Kai imo. They do a pretty good job of matching the feel of the movies.

    That’s kinda the point, Johnny is stuck in an antiquated mindset from the 80’s and has to learn & develop into something better.

    Also it’s not Mad Men, it’s a Karate Kid show, adjust your expectations accordingly.

    If anything, it’s mocking the way that cultural changes which are fairly easy to adapt to become impossible and awkwardly handled by boomers

    Boomers aren't the reason you're a slob.
