Cobra Kai

Ace Degenerate:
Series opener.
Cobra Kai is the TV sequel series to The Karate Kid with clips from the first movie especially the tournament between Daniel and Johnny being incorporated here.
The tournament was in 1984 and we then jump to the present in 2018 and what has life been like for Johnny as he still is reeling from his defeat by Daniel in the said tournament.
Ralph Macchio appears briefly as Daniel in this the first episode as he unexpected had a reunion with Johnny and what a surprise who Danielís daughter turned out to be.
Ace Degenerate is a very good series opener and it was very good in making us sympathise with Johnny and made Daniel look like the villain even though it was the other way around in The Karate Kid.

Strike First:
Season 1, Episode 2.
After the series started off mostly from Johnny’s perspective this the second episode shows that life has been good to Daniel and certainly not the villain that Johnny’s perspective made him out to be.
Nicely handled episode including Daniel dealing with the reality being the father of a teenage daughter and confronting Johnny in his new dojo.

Esqueleto:
Season 1, Episode 3.
The episode title is Spanish for skeleton and it harks back to Daniel wearing a skeleton costume in the first Karate Kid film and here Miguel wears one at the school.
What particularly got my attention is from the said dance when I saw a male student in costume as the Eleventh Doctor and picking up a girl.
Seeing this Miguel says to his friends that they just lost one (a girl) to Doctor Who!
Given the Eleventh Doctor here and notwithstanding having seen the Karate Kid movies beforehand, what triggered me in starting in Cobra Kai was rewatching Selfie 1.6 Never Block Cookies.
In this Selfie episode, a Karate Kid reference was made by Eliza Dooley and she was played by Eleventh Doctor companion my wife Karen Gillan.
Whilst on the subject of triggering mechanism and having seen the first two episodes what triggered me in seeing this the third episode of season 1 was seeing a rerun of School Reunion, the third episode of David Tennantís first season as the Doctor.
School Reunion & Esqueleto both has a school as a setting but more so in the Doctor Who episode than in the Cobra Kai episode.

Cobra Kai Never Dies:
Season 1, Episode 4.
Interesting that this episode begins with a kid stealing a laptop before it is revealed that he is Johnny’s son.
Oh dear on what was done to Daniel’s face on a billboard by Johnny.
After failing to get through with his son it sure provided an inspiration for Johnny to beg Carmen to let son Miguel back into karate lessons.

Molting:
Antepenultimate episode of season 1.
Oh dear, Daniel’s cousin Louie with a couple of friends destroy Johnny’s car which only makes things worse as Johnny is now heading to Daniel for retribution.

Mercy Part II:
Season 2 opener.
Quite awkward Johnny bumping into Daniel and Robby at the store.
This comes as Johnny and Kreese patch things up and I wonder how this will play out.

Back in Black:
Season 2, Episode 2.
Interesting to see the way Daniel and his wife selling cars.
What a reunion that Daniel had with Kreese at the end.

Fire and Ice:
Season 2, Episode 3.
Daniel's offer of free karate did not go well with a couple not appreciating what they have to do to get these lessons.
Poor Daniel as he got upstaged by Cobra Kai at that event.
Sad on Johnny recounting that he wasn't there when Robby was born as his own mother had just died.

The Moment of Truth:
Season 2, Episode 4.
Should not be surprised that Kreese made things up about himself.
Quite intense when Samantha accused Tory of stealing her (Samantha) mother's wallet leading to Tory to push Samantha down a food table.
An unexpected recruit of Demetri to Miyagi-do, the consequence of Kreese throwing him of Cobra Kai at the start of this episode.

All In:
Season 2, Episode 5.
What a fight that took place at the mall with Sam and Robby fighting against Hawk and gang as they defend Demetri.
That vandalism at Miyagi-do sure brought things to a head with Daniel getting defectors from Cobra Kai in the process.
