Great trailer. Looks like Terry Silver will be a big part of the season. Thomas Ian Griffith hasn't acted in any movies/TV since the mid-2000's so pretty cool he's doing this. Johnny's Badass Mixtape #4

As a Def Leppard superfan, I need to get my hands on that new remix of "Rock of Ages" in the trailer!

I just watched the first episode of Season 4 via an early screening Netflix did. It was great. I can’t wait until Friday to see the rest.

at Terry’s new found perspective on the events of Part III.

I won't be able to watch this until I get home from work tomorrow. I am really looking forward to it. And I'm glad season 5 is in the can and hopefully it won't be a full calendar year before we see it.

I don't think I will binge all 10 like crazy. I will try to pace myself.

Coming in this thread is gonna be tough for everyone who doesn’t binge the whole thing.

One of the few advantages of weekly is getting to talk about what just happened in certain episodes

Yeah, its about 5 hours or so for the whole season, so not much of a commitment.

Interesting to see old, alternate/deleted footage from the OG movie.

Spoiler:
Terry getting Kreese out of the way to take over all of Cobra Kai and that opens the door for Mike Barnes (who was owed part ownership of Cobra Kai). Chozen/Daniel vs Silver/Barnes.

My complaint about it is that it's no longer Johnny's journey. And his reconciliation with Robby gets put aside again to go find Miguel. I like Hawk's and Tori's redemptions. Interesting to see where their stories will lead. I'm guessing Hawk takes Miguel's place, but Tori now has ties with the LaRusso's. Bring on Season 5!

Yeah... they definitely hinted at that a few times during the series.

I was really hoping ...

Spoiler:
When Daniel brought Johnny up to speed on Silver, that he would say something along the lines of, "You fought for life/love back in Japan, only to become a pussy to prep for a tournament, what the hell?"

My favorite part that I almost passed out from laughing: "Wait, you're the son???.. What did you do, switch over to Whopper Jrs?"

I did think they went sort of Turtles 2 with the fight scenes this time around, but I guess there's only so much you can do after an all-school brawl, mall fight, etc.

Maybe Daniel will need

Julie Pierce too.

Terry said something about another Cobra Kai or two... Mike Barnes for sure... and they can maybe write a nice villain role for superfan Andrew Garfield now.

I watched the 1st 3 episodes last night before bed.

I loved Kreese meeting "Terrance"

Silver is a psychopath and I liked how he was using hanging out with snooty rich people to cover his crazy self.

and I barely recognized Daniel's son. He lost some weight. Now he's a douchebag bully.

Re: Cobra Kai (Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- Premieres 12/31/21

I have to get something off of my chest first. I hate that Netflix bought it from YouTube. When the news first came out about this series there were a lot of Is this really neededs. People doubted. But YouTube trudged on. Got it all together. Then when it's a hit Netflix just gives a few bucks and now Netflix will have all the glory. I hate it. When you ask a few years from now what properties has YouTube TV put out it's doubtful many people will say Cobra Kai, since it's a "Netflix property."

Spoiler:
I think Tory was still a better fighter than Sam at that point AND was honorable until the end. And now she's going to turn in the trophy. When they said they needed two fights to win and Hawk was first you KNEW 100% he was going to win, specially after that whole I'm the person who's going to win this whole thing. Daniel is so full of himself and to a point so are his kids.

It was YouTube Red, not YouTube TV - which is a cable replacement service.

Netflix, Amazon, YouTube Red and Hulu all bid on Cobra Kai at the same time, YT Red just won the bid. (YT Red is now YouTube Premium, but they stopped doing traditional scripted shows)

(It's also a Sony show.)

Netflix saved the show. YouTube made a decision not to continue with original programming. It was certainly not a mainstream "hit" while on YouTube Red, and without Netflix buying it out, there would have been NO season 4 (unless another entity would have bought it). You should be thankful that we are getting what we have... I DEFINITELY am.

I love this show! Another great season. I smiled so much at the many nods to the original movies. I loved drunken Johnny saying, "Come inside, come inside"... a la drunken Miyagi from the original.

Re: Cobra Kai (Netflix) -- Season 4 Thread -- Premieres 12/31/21

I'm watching the first episode of the first season for the first time right now! It took the show going to Netflix and the hype of season four premiering for me to get there, but I like it. I think I'll have some work to do before I catch up with this thread. I'm going back to the season one thread and will chime in to each old thread as I watch.

Technically yes it was a Red original, but Red shows were available to YouTube TV subscribers. I saw this show through YTTV at the time.
