This has everything a person growing up in the 80s could ask for and complete with the reminder that you are not that young anymore. It could be viewed as one of those guilty things to watch, but there should be no guilt involved. Okay, maybe a little bit. It blends the over 30-year gap between 1984 and 2018 in a way where every high school has the nerds, jocks, and outsiders. Daniel now has a family of his own and a successful car dealership. On the other hand, Johnny didn’t turn out so well despite being part of the Encino crowd in high school. He now lives in Reseda and Daniel does not. Neither one of them keeps in contact with Ali with an i although it would be great if Elisabeth Shue makes an appearance in Season 3, but I doubt it. It was nice to see some of the old Cobra Kai members make an appearance although older and hairless for some. For a show about middle aged men teaching karate to high school students they have little similarities with, it is pure entertainment. Besides, John Kreese returns and what can go wrong with that? Obviously, a lot. I look forward to season three on Netflix as it left YouTube.
I rate Cobra Kai FOUR FINGERS and ONE THUMB at 100%.
