Cobra Kai Season 1 Recap: Nostalgia, Karate, And A Brilliant William Zabka | LRM’s No Mercy Podcast
Welcome to LRM’s No Mercy Podcast! Over the next few weeks Kyle, Christine, and Manny will be recapping Cobra Kai Season 1 and Season 2 in preparation for the release of Season 3. Don’t have time to rewatch the first two seasons, don’t worry we have you covered. Once Season 3 hits, we’ll break it down into karate-chopped-wood-chunks for you to consume! This isn’t your local Dojo. This isn’t your momma’s house. There is no crying, no quitting, and no being a p****! You will Strike First, you will Strike Hard, and you will show absolutely NO MERCY!
It’s hard to believe that Cobra Kai Season 1 first hit almost three years ago (May 2018, okay not that “almost”) on YouTube. The series was an instant hit despite low subscriptions to YouTube’s premium service to be able to watch it. The show was allegedly heavily pirated and people shared their YouTube Red access like crazy. The point is, the show got huge even if YouTube and Google didn’t know it. Netflix did though and they jumped at the chance to do Season 3 AND bring us Season 4!
The first season reintroduced the Karate Kid stars, William Zabka and Ralph Macchio, as Johnny Lawrence and Danny Larusso respectively. It brought a cast of great kids that kept the series grounded, lively, and full of moments that had us saying” I wish I could do that.” However, it’s not all fun and games. Johnny is bringing the Cobra Kai Dojo back and that causes Danny to start training himself and new students. There is a war brewing, but this is just the spark.
Be sure to tune in next Thursday (Christmas Eve) for the Season 2 recap!
