Cobra Kai S1-3
IMDb rating: 8.8/10
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 94%
The latest entry in the Karate Kid franchise is built on nostalgia, and it doesn’t disappoint. Thirty years after their epic rivalry first kicked off, Johnny and Daniel come face to face again, this time without the guidance of Mr Miyagi, when Johnny decides to reopen the Cobra Kai dojo.
There’s a new generation of Karate Kids who enter the arena, and it’s up to Johnny and Daniel to train them up for their own version of the All Valley Karate Tournament.
Critics adore this sequel to the films, with IndieWire saying, “The series should appeal to savvy teens who delight in mildly transgressive content and to those nursing their nostalgia like Daniel and Johnny do”, and Newsday writing, “This series has an underdog spirit of its own, even if it’s not quite the triumphant crane kick it could be.”
