80s lovers are saying Ralph Macchio's Cobra Kai is better than the Karate Kid movie

Must See 02/09/2020

If you were around in the 80s, you know just how good of a film Karate Kid was.

Ralph Macchio, who played Daniel LaRusso, made teenage hearts swoon and all of us try to catch flies with chopsticks, and in case you didn't know... Daniel LaRusso is back, with Ralph reprising the role.

The new show is called Cobra Kai, and it started as Youtube webseries that is now on Netflix. It's fast becoming a massive hit with new and old Karate Kid fans alike.

The show is a drama/comedy and features much of the original 80s cast.

Remember Johnny Lawrence from the original Karate Kid movie? He isn’t so happy with where he has turned out in life - a 50-year-old, part-time handyman who lives in a run down apartment in California.

He is just a wee bit jealous of the success that his former nemesis, Daniel LaRusso, has seen as a fancy big-name car salesman.

After rescuing his young neighbor from a gang of bullies, Johnny decides to reopen the Cobra Kai studio, which reignites his rivalry with Daniel LaRusso. And thus begins the series.

You can already catch all of Seasons One and Two of Cobra Kai on Netflix. But, you can expect a Netflix Original Season THREE to hit the streaming service in 2021!
