Quite bad. The fact that this is getting so much attention at the moment seems crazy to me. I’ve watched the first two seasons (with my GF) and I have to say that this whole thing is pretty embarrassing. I kind of enjoyed the first few episodes, because I thought it was being very tongue in cheek, but as the show progressed I started to realise it’s just a bit shit. Shame.
I didn’t set out to watch Cobra Kai. In fact, my first reaction upon seeing the trailer for season one was to “cringe”. It came across as a bad modern teen soap opera, that had hitched a ride with much older, martial arts franchise, from the 80’s.
Since then, I’ve been glad to have been proven “partly” wrong. Yes, it is a teen soap opera but enough of the original 80’s Karate Kid films essence has rubbed off, making it moderately charming and watchable. Even to a wider, older audience.
The re-emergence of original characters I remember as a teen, watching the original films, held my attention. Season one to four, sensibly builds upon the formula that made the original films so watchable.
Sadly, season five is more preachy soap opera than karate action. The cheesy humour of the previous seasons, is mostly absent too.Indeed the tone is unsuitably lecturing and serious, which is, I feel a mistake.
This franchise, even in its dark moments never took itself too seriously. Nor should it, given what is essentially the larger than life, almost comic book vibe, the whole thing has going on.
In summary, season one to four is enjoyable. By contrast, season five seems to lack a clear sense of direction and worse still, doesn’t seem to understand what it is, this franchise represents. I think maybe its time for this nostalgic joy ride, to get the “chop.”
Very smartly written & acted – highly recommended
I was a teen in the 80’s and enjoyed watching this film – as most guys my age did. I was a little skeptical when I saw that they were making a new series that takes place 30 years after the movie ended. But once I saw the trailers – I felt like they might be on to something. After watching several episodes – I can tell you that they nailed it. This is the best show out there – anywhere. It’s not over acted (or under acted). It’s not corny or stupid either. It’s the perfect match up of seriousness with a few goofs or references from the 80’s thrown in here & there. This revival could have been a disaster but it looks like they got the perfect combo of writers, directors & actors. It’s funny, because as a kid – I wanted to punch Johnny in the throat as hard as I could. But as a 40-something year old – I’m kinda rooting for him. Great job to the people responsible for making this happen – and of course it couldn’t have happened without Ralph & William. Thank you!
Very Very Well Done
As a huge and I mean huge fan of the original (I wore out two VHS tapes of this I watched it so much and lost count after 100 viewings), I was a bit skeptical about a series set 30 years after the original movie.
I am happy to say the makers of this series did not let me down, I just finished binge watching all 10 epsiodes and expect there will be many repeated viewings. Very very well done and the flashbacks brought back so many memories, just brilliant.
Good to see the original actors back in one place which must have been a bit of a task, but wow it was worth it.
This is a must see for any fans of the original movie. Anyone who has not seen the original movie must see it before viewing this series, you will not be disappointed.
I came very close to giving this a 10.
