Yesterday I watched the final few episodes of Cobra Kai and boy did the last episode of season two turn into a war zone in the school. I am not sure I’ve ever seen anything else like it.
The character development really draws you in from the start. Johnny who was the bad guy in the first film is really the main character here. You are drawn in and you really do feel for the guy. His problems feel real, but his bad luck comes and goes with some good luck and more bad luck.
As the show went on you get drawn in and feel more involved, there are very few programs on TV which have this. Game of Thrones had you and this does as well.
Another aspect of Cobra Kai is the Romeo and Juliet story, with two different characters falling in love with each other from rival families. And if you watch carefully, there are three different RoJ stories in the show.
Now because of watching that, today I’ve just watched Karate Kid, 1, 2 and 3 on Amazon Prime and realised I’ve actually never seen the third one. I enjoyed the films but on each one I felt there could of been more of a solid ending.
If you’re a fan of the original films and have Netflix I highly recommend watching the show.
