I’m not sure how many of you out there have already watched it. Apparently it released in May and I’ve looked at the first four episodes and I have been fairly entertaining. A decent amount of nostalgia but also the storyline doesn’t rely on that and focuses mostly on the continuation of the story between LaRusso and Lawrence as adults.

Pretty good overall. Here is the first episode.

I don't think so. I'm only 4 in and like it a lot but don't want to see this turn into an ongoing series. there is enough story there for closure to the Karate Kid franchise but not enough to support more than two seasons IMO.

When you finish season 1, you'll definitely be wanting more episodes. But yeah, I don't think it can remain high quality if they keep churning out season after season.

Rumor is season two hits early 2019. Production wrapped earlier this month.

I just finished season 1 and especially enjoyed episodes 9 and 10. The show got a little heavy on the nostalgia plot device as it went on but nothing too much like The Force Awakens.

What I really enjoy about the show is how it depicts much of the events in The Karate Kids from the perspective of Johnny Lawrence and makes you step back and reconsider if there were any good guys/heros in that movie.

While his character is meant to be overly stuck on the past, I do also enjoy Johnny's take on today's world vs. the 80's, especially as it relates to his students. You can leave your asthma and your peanut allergies and all that other made-up bullshit outside,. It's the sort of take that makes me think I'd want to be in Cobra Kai, but realistically, I'm sure those lines are in there to really connect to the egos of those non-millennials who are watching this out of their love and connection to The Karate Kid as part of their youth.

I binged both seasons.

Loved Season 1, so much nostalgia. I really liked Season 2 but got away from the Johnny/Daniel thing a bit, felt like their interactions are the best part of the show.

Thought the final episode of S2 was a little hard to really buy into, but just accepting it all could happen that way it was still a solid ending.

The little teaser in the last episode for S2 has me really excited for S3.

I watched the first two episodes and I'm hooked. A little silly, but well done, and I love the references to the movies. The first Karate Kid is one of my favorite 80s movies, I don't think it gets the respect it deserves.

So I heard they're going to put these on regular YouTube, with commercials, near the end of the year?
