I thought they’d never be able to make ‘Preacher’, but they did, and it was pretty good.

I thought well, yeah but surely they’d never be able to make ‘the Boys’, but...

Yeah, that was awesome. I would never have imagined a follow up to Karate Kid would be that good.

I spent the better part of a day binge watching most of Cobra Kai Season 2. Now I have to wait almost a year to see the resolution to the season finale. :cry:
Despite the rather lame sounding premise of The Karate Kid, but 30 years later, it is a really good show. If you are not already watching it, you should give it a shot.

I also just finished Star Trek: Discovery season 2. It's different from previous Trek's but the underlying principles are still there. Decent acting, a reasonably good story arc and some nods to the original pilot episode have made it an enjoyable show to watch. It's probably worth your time to see the 4 episode Short Treks series before watching season 2 though, a couple of them tie in with later episodes.

I enjoyed S2 of Discovery. Far more watchable than most other treks.

What exactly is Kobra Kai, anyway? And where can I watch it, since peeps are saying it's so good?

It's based on the characters from The Karate Kid, but all grown up now. Daniel Larusso is now a successful businessman with a wife and two kids. Johnny Lawrence, the 'bad' kid from the first movie is an odd-jobs man with an ex-wife and delinquent kid who hates him. After a run in with a group of bullies and their victim, Johnny agrees to teach a local kid karate to toughen him up and ends up re-opening the Cobra Kai dojo. Honestly, I was never a huge fan of the movies, but this show is worth a look.
The show is being produced by YouTube. If you don't have a premium account, they have said that the show should be watchable if you are willing to put up with some ads. I think the first couple of episodes are free to watch without ads though.

Hmmn. I can barely recall even seeing the karate kid when I was young. That said, I’m willing to give things a try. Certainly, it’s interesting in that it’s the first tv show I’ve been made aware of that’s YouTube produced.
