cobra kai: season 1 TV review - Aussieboyreviews


This entertaining series rebooted from Karate Kid will surely stun fans. Expect lots of fighting, but also teen-related content and language. It’s great for older kids and young teens.


Decades after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, Johnny Lawrence reopens the Cobra Kai dojo, reigniting his rivalry with a now successful Daniel LaRusso.

Aussie boy's thoughts

It’s truly intelligent with how the Cobra Kai series brings back William Zabka’s Johnny Lawrence and Ralph Macchio’s Daniel LaRusso as adults, but also introduces the new generation of teenagers and forwards back into karate. However, there’s a lot more teenage themes and topics that create significantly entertaining dramas beside Cobra Kai. There’s bullying, attitudes and toxic characters. Cobra Kai only leaves these teens in a way that they constantly resort to violent masculinity, but it’s always entertaining and powerful.
