    Those two guys look old. I wonder if they will actually fight. :)

    His face off walk at the end looks like a tame 6 year old.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,524 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Ralph Macchio is now four years older (56) than Pat Morita (52) was playing Mister Miyagi in the original film.



    Just reading up on this and it is ten 30 minute episodes and it's a single camera comedy.

    If it's a comedy it could work but is this the 3rd or 4th reboot of the concept at this stage?


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,400 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    I'd say 2nd reboot. KK4 had Hilary Swank but Pat Morita was in it so it was kind of a sequel/spinoff. The Karate Kid with Jaden Smith was the first proper reboot.

    Wasn't the Swank 1 called the Next Karate Kid, I'm counting reboot on that 1 ;) I seem to recall a previous TV series, might have been a cartoon, and then that pile of **** that was the Smith 1. With those in mind this new 1 could be 4 reboots/attempts

    You could also say that this is a direct sequel to KK3. Same actors, same world. So it's not a reboot of that. :)

    I'm not going to lie that make me laugh and brought a smile to my face I really want to love it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,605 ✭✭✭ BaronVon


    I haven't been this excited for a new TV show in a long time. At first I thought it was a piss take, but this could be really good.

    How do you get Youtube Red?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,600 ✭✭✭ Slydice


    Looking more polished in these two teasers




  • Registered Users Posts: 17,757 ✭✭✭✭ Drumpot


    Looks like they are going for the old role reversal. I already don’t like Danielson from
    The trailer. Looks like it might be a bit of fun!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 870 ✭✭✭ Kuva


    Grrr, stop bumping til it's out!!!

    Fecking trailers.

    Johnny got a bad rap unfairly when he was a kid, i hope this evens it out :D

    A belief in gender identity involves a level of faith as there is nothing tangible to prove its existence which, as something divorced from the physical body, is similar to the idea of a soul. - Colette Colfer

    Is it really bad that the tv show cant even afford to use the makes of the cars?!


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,524 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson

    IGN gave the first two episodes 8.5. This definitely looks like one to watch. :)

    Just watched the first episode there. Excellent. Hard not to have sympathy for Johnny. Trying to figure out how he went off the rails after the loss really considering he took it with such grace and sportsmanship at the time.

    I think it was the fact he became disillusioned with the Cobra Kai who defined his youth in many respect. While a bad company they gave him organisation, structure and discipline in his life and when that went there was a huge void to fill.

    Such an interesting story in many respects. Needs a cameo or two from Elizabeth Shue though ;)
