The nostalgia for the 80’s has recently erupted into our current pop culture zeitgeist and one of the poster movies for that decade is none other than Karate Kid. On this episode of The Post Credit Podcast Matt and Drew dig into Cobra Kai, the YouTube (and soon to be Netflix) hit that follows the lives of the arch-enemies from the 1984 movie, Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso, 36 years after they had their epic showdown at the All-Valley Karate tournament. Cobra Kai picks up with Johnny, now in his 50’s and suffering from all the bad choices he’s made in life until one bullied teenager looks to Johnny as a mentor as his idolization of Johnny’s no BS attitude slowly forms a friendship that encourages Johnny to reopen the Cobra Kai dojo and begin training a whole new generation of Cobra Warriors. In this episode, the PCP discusses all the nostalgia, drama, music, fights, and character depth the show can pack into each episode and how you’ll consume these episodes faster than a plate of hard-shell POLO tacos. Revisit the world of Johnny, Daniel, Miyagi and Kreese as the show’s excellent writing and execution makes it the best around!
