Cobra Kai Revisited
« on: January 05, 2022, 10:16:02 PM »
Looks like they have approved season 5!  I believe @CreepinDeth posted about this in Cobra Kai - Youtube Red Show.   This is now owned by Netfilx... and we were able to do a limited Netflix membership for a few shows.  I really try to limit the amount of paid memberships at one time... enough of that for now.

We have made it through most of season 3 now... and it's a pretty good show!  I have to say, It is hard to stomach the teenage drama at times.  Overall, it's been a great series.

Is anyone else still checking this out?  @Jack have you started?

I'm caught up. My teenage daughter has me callous to the teenie drama so I don't even notice it! Good retro itch scratcher.

It doesn't seems like Cobra Kai has pulled anyone from the Next Karate Kid movie yet and despite it being the wrost, I'd love to see them work in Hillary Swank and Walton Goggins

I am fully caught up as well.  LOL... you're better than me then on teenage drama.  I think I'm more...  "hulk smash" on that topic  ;D

I will say, the series has flowed a bit different than I expected in seasons 3 and 4.  I find myself wanting to punch myself in the face for some of the drama I see on screen for the adults too.

However,
Spoiler: ShowHide
Once infighting started with John Kreese and Terry Silver, and Silver started pulling some crap... What happened to Kreese was not a surprise.  At 1st, I thought Silver was going to help Kreese along in a better direction.  That thought was soon destroyed.


I cannot wait for Season 5... stupid drama aside.

I finished season 4 a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed it for what it was, but man, they really brought the cheese this season.

Spoiler: ShowHide
That whole All Valley board room scene, the debate scene, the female recruiting scene, the Prom/Pool scene. I'll stop there, lol.

Seems like they can now go in a different direction than the usual dojo affiliations, which is very nice. Times have changed and they need to adapt. "They" as in LaRusso and Lawrence.

The ending of the season was pretty cool in my opinion... and it made me want to go back at watch Karate-Kid part iii.... which, I didn't remember at all. I thought I watched them all, but I think I missed that one.  I did miss the Hilary Swank and Jaden Smith version as well.  I am going to go back and review them.

The board scene was ... whatever.  It is interesting that they brought in Katas.  If you ever saw Karate competitions, most had something like this.  It at least brought it back to being a bit more  "realistic" even though hesitate to use that word.  I have yet to see sparring in Karate like in Karate Kid.  Most are Taekwondo style point sparring.  Again, I'm not claiming to have a ton of experience with this, but I have seen a few competitions... 1 was recent (small show).

The actual tournament itself was well done. I think the way everything played out was good. It fit the storyline and allowed many of the characters to have growth as opposed to just being purely background bodies to have in their respective teams.
