    There's something about it that is just so fun, so kitschy, so self-aware, and nostalgic, that I find incredibly entertaining and endearing. It knows exactly what it is, and what the audience wants to see, and it delivers. And it's designed in such a way to bring in new audiences to the Karate Kid universe too. :)

    I loved season 1 and think they did a great job with it. I can't wait for season 2. I'll probably watch the whole season in one sitting.

    I'm hoping for a season 3 already.

    S3 has already been announced. The show is already picked up for S3, so it will be coming.

    All of this.

    When Kreese showed up at the end of E10, my wife and I both laughed...in a good way.

    I was 13 in 1984 and am now thoroughly entrenched in middle age. For me, it's the perfect sequel at the perfect time.

    Me too, exactly :)

    This was an excellent TV moment for me. Completely unspoiled. In fact, for some reason I had it in my head that Martin Kove, the actor who played Kreese, had actually died many years ago. I have no idea where that notion came from :D bu anyway,t as I was watching Season 1, I remember thinking to myself, that it's too bad he's not around to be included, and when Johnny mentioned his "sensei who died," I figured, OK, that's how they were handling this character's absence.
    So when Kreese actually did appear, I stood up from my couch, cheering, in total surprise.

    Later I was reminded that in Karate Kid 3, there was a plot point where Terry Silver lied about Kreese having a fatal heart attack, so that could explain at least some part of why Johnny had said that about his old sensei...

    This 30 for 30 was brilliant!

    Also, for those interested, Vudu has the original 3 for $15 in HDX right now. If you want to relive the glory days. You know, back in the 80's when your choices were to go to the movies, or to a karate tournament!

    TODAY!!!!


    Now... how do we setup a thread to discuss? Episode by episode? I tried that for season 1 and got little interest.

    I can't do a "season" thread as I won't be able to watch the entire season on one shot.

    I have been able to binge watch 8 of the 10 episodes and feel season 2 is almost on par with season 1. Season 1 being 10/10 and season 2 being an 8 or a 9 out of 10. Let’s see how it finishes up.

    I thought this show was going to be free with ads. Do I need Youtube premium still?

    I hope season 3 comes. There's been a lot of rumors swirling around YouTube original content. Some are saying Google wants to kill it (I mean what product doesn't Google want to kill if it's not an instant success), or that they'll make it ad supported. Fingers crossed.
