Not what I would normally watch but I'm hooked. Dh made me watch The Karate Kid to fully appreciate it.
Ralph Macchio hasn't aged well but the guy who plays Johnny Lawrence is lovely. It's fabulously cheesy.

I'm not into it but one of the teenagers I look after seems to love it! It's really not her normal thing to watch either

ReefTeeth Sat 12-Sep-20 13:46:22

Yep, we've watched it all here, and enjoyed it 🤐

Yes! We binged it last week - it was mostly brilliant cheese, with a few scenes taking it into terrible teen drama territory, but I loved all the references to the films.

DP gave me a back massage the other day and I could feel him doing wax on, wax off and paint the fence grin

Ralph Macchio hasn't aged well
Really? He’s mid 50s in this! God knows what you would think of me 😂

It's made our family go a bit bonkers, I have developed a habit of entering a room doing the crane kick shouting No mercy or Cobra Kai bitches blush

I love this so much!

We now talk about hash browns rather than hash tags in a way that we think is hilarious but probably just makes people outside the family think we're idiots

Found season two a bit more heavy going as the teen drama ramped up, but love the dynamic whenever Johnny and Daniel end up teaming up so VERY excited about season three, especially bearing in mind the other potential returner.

Starting season 2 tonight.

Enjoy! (And I'm so glad I was a bit vague rather than inadvertently spoiling!)

Absolutely love it.
I love the nostalgic nods they make to the original film.
I love the fact they have some of the original cast.
But most of all I love Daniel Sun- my absolute crush when I was younger.
I think he has aged well and looks to young for the wife he has.
Also think Jonny has aged quite well.

I love it. And I have a massive crush on the Gene Hunt-tastic Johnny.

That little secret smile...😍

I get DH to answer me with ‘Yes Sensei!’ quite a lot at the moment grin

Well the actress who plays his wife is only 14 yrs older than the actress that plays his daughter apparently.. God forbid that a middle aged wife should actually be middle aged. We love it too and I think Daniel looks pretty good myself. But the one who must not be named looks like a walking zombie who has been hijacked by the worlds worst plastic surgeon bless him. Though of course he is much older than the other 2 .

You know he’s older now than Pat Morita was when he played Mr Miyagi?!

Maybe the plastic surgery was part of him faking his own death. He got a new face grin

@LunaNorth
Of course that will be it ! Duh ! Cant believe I missed that.
Still cant imagine him being much use in an all out karate war!

IHaveBrilloHair Sun 13-Sep-20 18:07:27

Absolutely loved it and have a huge crush on Johnny grin

flapjackfairy Sun 13-Sep-20 18:13:27

In fact ignore my pearls of wisdom . It is 17 yrs difference between mum and daughter. The website I read it on was telling lies !

OverTheRainbow88 Sun 13-Sep-20 18:15:12

My OH is obsessed, literally pissing himself watching it!!

There are some great lines.

‘In English, they’re called bananas.’

Haha yes I must admit I had a LOL at that

IHaveBrilloHair Sun 13-Sep-20 18:27:43

The scene where Johnny has a dream about Miguel's Mum had me hooting with laughter.

Cassie71 Sun 13-Sep-20 18:31:57

Dinosaurs built the pyramids.

Johnny: I knew it smile

BigMamaFratelli Sun 13-Sep-20 18:35:44

Oh oh oh me!!! I absolutley love it!!!! DP and I have sooo many lines we quote at each other. Like total nerdsblush

A friend recommended it - I asked if it was cheesy and he said 'not that I've noticed'. He was clearly watching something else entirely !!!
