Cobra Kai Never Dies! - Dan - 05-09-2018

I just now got a chance to check out this series, and I have to say, it's a straight up and down winner. It's everything I was hoping that it would be, in that it treats the subject matter unironically and earnestly.   There's none of that deconstruction I was worried about; this is a legitimate in universe continuation of the Karate Kid, with some surprisingly thoughtful revisiting of past events from the films.

On top of that, there is a good amount of visual story telling, letting us know that Johnny is very much stuck in the past without beating us over the head with it or getting in our faces and asking if we get it yet.

Strike First, Strike Hard, No Mercy!
