In season 1 and loving it.  Johnny's reaction when the girl talks about being cyberbullied cracked me up.  Just when you think he's turning a corner.

Binge watched the entire season 1 yesterday. The best parts of the show are the unexpected cursing and put downs from both Johnny and Daniel. With so many teens on the show, I thought it would be more teen friendly, but the show is clearly aimed at adults and that is fine by me.

Spoiler

I thought the transformation of Miguel from nerdy guy to asshole was a too quick. But Sam is a flirt and I understand why he'd be pissed.  I thought the final fight was perfect, because I really didn't know who to root for.

And yes, Daniel's wife is a MILF. I didn't pay close attention to Johnny's wife, but she won't go down unless you buy her dessert.

Halfway through Season One.  I do think the basic idea of the show is really simply clever, but it's so perfectly terribly executed it is goddamn fantastic.

Yeah, the "I don't give a shit" line on the window washing made it all worthwhile.

Great Johnny line from season 2:

"Put one of those hash browns on it and send it to the internet!"

This show sucks and only Johnny’s disdain for nerdy shit makes it passable. Man if every nerd can just get a Mohawk have a few practices and “roll their way” to the semis of a karate tournament. Ralph Maccio is so cheesy I can’t take it anymore.

I liked the show, but one thing I thought was out of place is how much time these kids seem to spend in their dojos, how much time has passed overall, and how much Karate they know as the series progresses, yet they're all......still white belts at the end???

It's been a couple of decades since I was in Karate as a kid, but I remember feeling like it only took about 5 minutes and showing you know a small handful of moves before they threw a yellow belt at you.

The show is kind of corny overall, but also feels intentionally that way.  Overall a nice nostalgia trip.

No shit. My daughter who's been doing TKD for a full 3 years is a brown belt with a black stripe. Next up is red belt and then black.

I can take her down in 2 seconds without even knowing kung fu.

Show is still funny though.

You're all weak. And I know that because I was you. I used to have no friends, I used to be the weird kid. Well, maybe not that weird, I still hooked up with babes 'n all but the point is - I wasn't always the badass Sensei that I am today. Just like a cobra,

Johnny's wife is none other than Diora Baird - starlet of my favorite scene in Wedding Crashers.

The main point of the Mohawk kid storyline was how self-confidence can change the way you view yourself and how others view you. Pretty damn good message that’s missing from a lot of media today imo.

Sure it is. But it doesn’t translate into automatic ass kicking Bruce Lee semifinalist. The entire show moves too fast. 

How hard did Danielsan work before he fought successfully in the movie?  And that’s 2 hours.

The show calls out the younger generation for being the politically correct pussies that they are.

That's alright by me.

Finally got to binge this. Like others shared. Its so perfectly bad, its brilliant. Macchio doesn’t bother me, because Zabka owns it! Im no karate champ, but I do enjoy a yellow belly beer. The music, the props, cars, Zabka’s Van Halen t shirt. Badass. 
The word pussy needs to remain in the lexicon.

Season 2 wasn't as good. Best part is the very end when he throws his phone and a certain person responds which gives me hope for season 3.

I like how in season one Daniel takes robby to the woods and leaves him by himself and verbally tells him how to do this lesson of "balance" and of course robby KILLS it in one try and just like that he's a karate expert. I've never seen so many kids learn karate in 3 lessons and become experts. I like drunk, pissed off johnny calling kids pussies and the fat kid with the tits popping out. I hope he stays that way.

I also feel we are gonna end up getting a Robby switches to Cobra Kai and Miguel becomes a raging vagina for Miyagi-do.

Just finished Season 1.  Enjoyed it enough, but not sure I feel the need to continue on.  The old trope of "walking into a room at the wrong time, causing everyone to get mad" wears me out and that was a big go to move.

It seems like Cajun really enjoyed Season 2, but any other opinions?  I may wait to see how 3 is before committing to 2.

S2 is not good. The ending was terrible. 

Disagree but to each their own. I for one am very much looking forward to season 3 and I originally went into this show with very low expectations.

What?  I was pretty fuckin' clear that Season 2 blows goddamn donkey cock.

This is why we can't have nice things!

I have a couple of episodes left in S2. I generally agree that it's not very good, there is way too much shit going on. 

I don't know if Robbie dies somehow by the end of S2 but I root for it every episode. If he is still not written off by the end of Season 2 maybe they can start S3 with a graphic telling us that he joined the Peace Corps and moved to Tanzania or some shit. Get him the fuck out of here. Robbie is the worst.

Robbie and that cunt Sam are two of the most unlikeable characters I've seen in some time - not sure why the show insisted on pushing them as protagonists.

Just finished season 2, enjoyed it but season 1 was better. The ending was pretty dumb. Agree that Johnny is the best character. 

Spoiler

In my high school a brawl broke out between rival gang members during lunch once, probably 9 or 10 kids total involved. It was wild. Those kids all got arrested, criminally charged, and I'm not sure that any of them ever saw the inside of that school again. I can't fucking imagine what would happen in real life if a fight like in the last episode broke out at a school. But it was satisfying to see Hawk kicked into the trophy case.

At least with the Cobra Kai kids, Johnnie took away all their belts and made them white belts again, for whatever reason I forget.

Tommy in a body bag. They really went there.

And I'm hoping HBO picks this up eventually just so we can see more of Miguel's mom.
