The scene in the Mexican restaurant was one of my favorite moments of last season.

Overall enjoyed the shit out of it. This season's 'cliffhanger' pales compared to the previous two but it's hard to keep doing that. I was thinking damn Robbie's gonna stab Kreese, or stab Johnny or someone's gonna die and they're like "Tournament!" lol

I'm glad Stingray is gone. He was pretty much the JarJar of season 2, and the only thing he did that was funny was throwing those little kids around in the finale. Also the Laruso's son has been all but written off the show lol

Tory is a solid 'villain'. I liked the parallels with her and the initial Kreese flashback. and bringing Kyler back was a good move since he's less sympathetic than Hawk

The only thing was really meh about was the KKII stuff felt too shoehorned. Definitely some good moments with Chozen, but the Yuki stuff was pretty bad (it was pretty bad in KKII tho). The girl he saved being the one to save Laruso auto was just goofy.

Zabka is still crushing it and pretty much has the show's best lines and moments.

Elizabeth Shue is a few years shy of 60. she looks great.

not quite as good as 1 and 2 but it was still enjoyable. Some dumb stuff, some unbelievable but still entertaining.

I thought Daniel's son might be a different actor. lol He looks completely different but guess just growing, maybe they can eventually work him into the show and have him learn karate.


Spoiler for ending:


is that vietnam friend alluding to Terry Silver from KK3?

I couldn't remember if Silver was his Nam buddy or former Cobra Kai student. I thought it was gonna end with Kreese either screwing over all his buddies or doing something cowardly and being the only one alive to tell the story (like a Dick Whitman/Don Draper thing). Anyway his backstory started off better than it ended.

Also, are we assuming that's the same car? The asshole jock guy seemed to bitch about it like he was about to get rid of it.

I remember very little about KKIII, but I'm pretty sure they were 'Nam buddies, and he talked about how Kreese saved his life. But like I mention below, the actor who played him at least said a few months ago that he's not interested in acting again.

Yeah, noticed that too. Kind of had to be.

Seriously, a 70+ year old man sends a bunch of teenagers to go and destroy a home and assault a bunch of other teenagers, and the solution that Daniel and his wife are cool with "Let's settle this at the tournament!" Even with the prior history, Krease would get arrested and Tory would be sent to juvie for violating probation. Like, I know there's a lot of suspension of disbelief involved with this show, but that whole completely took me out of it. Not to mention that Hawk earlier beats up a kid and steals the charity money from the car-wash and there's no repercussions (even if they "gave" it to Miguel on behalf of Cobra Kai) also set the B.S. meter on overload.

I think my other major problem is that Kreese still isn't really a character. I'm not sure the Vietnam flashbacks (which looked pretty bad) really did an effective job of explaining his motivations on why he'd want to teach kids karate to terrorize other kids. Or why Robby would start looking to him as a father figure, beyond wanting to piss off his real father.

Otherwise, it was cool. Zabka is really good. I kind of liked the KK II tie-ins. And the stuff with Shue/Ali. Seems like they were suggesting that they want to bring back Terry from KK III next season, but I read that he's happily retired from acting. I figure they'll bring back the kid would Daniel fought in KK III instead.

yea, nothing you said was wrong but i cant say any of it bugged me. Even the anti-climax of "tournament!" was more funny to me than anything else.

the Vietnam flashbacks were damn near sitcom level production. i don't know if we'll get more backstory on Kreese's road to teaching. I would just assume its more something he fell into rather than something he felt he was destined for.

Robby following Kreese doesn't seem far fetched to me. His dad 'chose' Miguel over him. Daniel not only turned him in, but Robby got his ass beat applying that ol' myagi-do defense only technique inside, and he didn't have it easy in Juvi and gain any respect until he followed Kreese's advise.

but really, as you kinda said, this isn't a show you want to analyze too much.

and if ANYONE needs to come back its Dutch

I never really bought the Robby sees Kreese as father figure thing, either! I heartily laughed when Robby hung up on Daniel when he called him in juvy, though. Poor kid.

>I kind of liked the KK II tie-ins. And the stuff with Shue/Ali.

Same. I wanted a little more Ali, but eh whatever, I guess. On to the next season! She's helped facilitate all of the necessary healing that everybody needed.

Theres times where its so overtop and bad because it has to be to make it fit in that world and it totally works. They do a good job with motivations and how they bring in old characters to make sense. The Japan arc felt forced at first especially just to save a dealership and then if you think about it, its totally what they would write in the 80s lol. It’s as ridiculous of a choice writing wise as any of the other story arcs from the movies to past seasons.

I sometimes wonder if Kreese has an ex-wife or kids somewhere in his past. Could they help this horror show of a man reconcile his past and find his heart again?

Anyway. It is what it is with Cobra Kai, including Robby and Daniel's bad wigs/hair pieces. Season 3 isn't nearly as strong as season 1 or 2, but I happily accepted it.

I was sad that Aisha was gone! Sam could've at least talked about missing her or wishing she had her best friend to help her with trauma. Something! It would've been interesting to see what decisions Aisha made re: dojo allegiance.

The "mass fights" are so long and stupid. They get dumber and dumber.

With that said, I can't wait for more hijinks that culminate at the next All Valley tournament!
