The unexpected hit of 2020 for me personally was Cobra Kai. Sure, I enjoyed the original Karate Kid movies from the ’80s (although each subsequent sequel dropped in quality) but I wasn’t a huge fan so I greeted the new show with some hesitancy. I’ve never been more happy to be wrong. The show is a joy from moment one–the soundtrack, the sights and dialogue already mimicking the original tone while also making room for the new characters as well. Yes, the show is steeped in nostalgia, but it doesn’t coast on that fact, making you care both about your original favorites (Daniel and Johnny!) while also caring about the next generation (their children). Highly recommend and so binge-able too!
