posted this in the "rate the last thing you watched" thread but make no apology for giving this it's own thread as it deserves it tbh.


gonna bump this up for "cobra kai" as I've finished the 10 episodes and its possibly my favourite series of all time. if you remember the origional karate kid it's essential viewing. no spoilers but brief plot synopsis....

catching up with original karate kid rivals johnny Lawrence and daniel Larusso 34 years on. johnny is struggling with life and daniel - on the face of it - lives the perfect life as a succesful car dealership owner selling luxury cars. johnny sees a kid getting bullied and uses his karate kills to defend him and then a chance meeting with Daniel son makes him decide to reopen the infamous cobra kai dojo.

this programme is so so good......johnny is now an anti hero on par with gene hunt. captures the feel of that first film perfectly. all the original cast - even down to Daniel's mum - have returned to their parts. uses the old locations. flashback scenes to the origional film. easter eggs galore for old fans. the attention to detail in recreating stuff is incredible.

10/10. first few episodes are free on youtube (it's been developed by it's subscription service youtube red, but youll find the rest in the usual places). it came out 2nd may but season 2 has already been commisioned.
