Yes but it is being tapped as a comedy. Not sure how I feel about that.

You Tube Red not available in UK either!! 😞
I supppse the comedy value was the only way to get the actors on board. Should be good with their input, they wouldn't let it get silly I'm sure. Hope other actors are included too 👊🏻

I just finished the Cobra Kia series, Season 1. If you liked the first movie, you will definitely like this! There are 10 episodes total. It was not a straight out comedy. There was drama and comedy, and a few nostalgic looks back throughout the series. It has been ordered a second season too!

I laughed and cried my way through the 10 episodes. This is a real gem so far and with season 2 on the way it promises more of the same. Who’s to say that there won’t be more of the original cast showing up at some point with Kreese already confirmed!!
I read an article of how the show came to be and the people behind it were true fans of the original.

It's a GREAT series. They got the balance perfect. I am usually wary when looking at a new series what they younger people will be like, but fortunately they were likeable.
It was well written, well acted and enough nods to the movies to bridge it.

I won't spoil it for anyone but it ended by setting up the next season (series) very nicely and I am really looking forward to it. Nice to see the two main characters having production credits too.

I saw the Cobra Kai series in it's entirety this past summer, and felt it was fantastic! I wasn't sure if a "sequel" to the original films would work that well, but I was pleasantly surprised. Solid series, with 0 weak moments.

First, it was very interesting to see Johnny (William Z.) having fallen so far in life, to the point that you actually felt sorry for the character. One of my favorite scenes was near the beginning of Episode 1, when he hit on that gorgeous 20-something jogger; it was funny how she not only rejected him, but put him down (calling him a creep) - LOL. Johnny was obviously living in the past to a great extent, since those were his best memories - but the present had obviously caught up to him.

Conversely, Daniel (Macchio) was the opposite - a very successful businessman, who was trying to incorporate his old teachings with Mr. Miyagi into his car dealership re: giving the "bonzai trees" to everyone who bought a car - LOL.

Interesting that Johnny started the karate studio, and that his students were essentially the social rejects that he had looked down on when he was their age. Very ironic, but that was the whole point.

Being an '80's kid, I really liked the '80's rock/pop music - great homage to the original film & era.

Another favorite scene was when Daniel & Johnny were in the bar, and were both reminiscing about the Elizabeth Shue character (whom they had both dated). Daniel was obviously "following" her on Facebook, and it was funny how he knew so much about her, despite his insistence that he wasn't interested in her anymore - LOL.

I'm also glad that Zabka & Macchio decided to make the show now. If they had waited 5-10 more years, I feel that they would have been too old for the role(s).

Looking forward to Season 2.

I saw on IG that they were starting filming of Season Two yesterday. I wonder if they will bring Elisabeth Shue into the story? I'd love to see her appear in at least one episode.
