  1. For the record i only brought up the Mandalorian because it was the most recent streaming show I've watched. I want to put it into the sort of light that Tank was talking about. For fun. The last scene b with Daniel and Kumiko, i tried getting who the other woman was. My guess was one of the girls that she taught the Obon dance to that was giggling. I forgot about the girl he saved during the storm. But only that she is a high up in Doyona and is able to return the favor to Daniel. I liked that. In Star Wars land that would be grounds for a flame war. "That's too convenient!"

  2. The thing that tears at me is the amount of call backs. In some ways it works. Daniel seeing Ali and her going "is that Daniel with an L?" Then you have the soccer game which is sequel level rehash of the soccer game from the original. Even down to Sam screaming "This school sucks!!!" When Johnny shows up to the country club with a white jacket I'm thinking spaghetti. The writers were one step ahead of us and had Johnny call out the server for almost bumping into him. The call backs were intentional and almost South Park levels of trolling. That's probably why i didn't mind too much.

    Great mini-swerve early on with Kreese being picked on at the diner. Both because you think he’s the jock and then because you think he’s just a geek but instead beats both of them.

    I also thought the kid with the slicked back hair was Silva.

    Well yeah, this show blows Mandalorian out of the water. Im not sure any of the sort of older properties brought back has balanced nostalgia, storytelling, great storylines for old and new characters as well as this. 

    I didn't say it was better than the Mandalorian. I said i can wait until the next session of it. I want to see the end of Cobra Kai because it is obviously close.

     

    As far Tank, i have a laundry list of problems that i can't get into now because I'm at work. I think this elicits the response it does because i don't know anyone who ever said they wanted more  Karate Kid. No we have and are lovin it.

  5. While i can wait for season 3 of The Mandalorian, i can't wait for season 4 of Cobra Kai. There's no doubt it will be the final season.

    While there were things I had problems with i just loves so much about the season

    - you can feel the genuine emotion of Ralph Macchio not having Pat Morita there. You can feel

    - Daniel going back to Okinawa could have been the most fan service okay of the season but it works perfectly. 

     

     

     

  6. Watched it Christmas morning. Really enjoyed it. 22 was so refreshing especially in today's atmosphere. I asked someone last week how they were doing and he replied "it's 2020!" I just smiled and thought aren't you a ball of sunshine.
