A light beams from William Zabka’s crotch!
July 2nd, 2018 under Billy Zabka. [ Comments: none ]


William Zabka posed with his Cobra Kai Sensei Martin Kove and their manager Gary Ousdahl in Las Vegas, but my eyes were drawn to Johnny Lawrence’s crotch. That is because it is beaming. Like there is literally a beam of light illuminating from it. It has me wondering why the ’80s bad boy was never in a Star Wars movie because the force is obviously strong with his lightsaber.

You know if YouTube wants to get more paid subscribers to tune into the best show of this decade, then they need to let Zabka’s light shine through on Cobra Kai for season 2.

At least we know that his little head knows how to find the good light like his big one.

You know, sometimes a light like that in a photo could be paranormal. And since what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, I guess we will never know if it was a spirit what that ghost was doing to him.

I think I better stop here because there is a reason why they told Carol Anne to stay away from the light in Poltergeist…

Impulse looks like Carrie on uppers! Cobra Kai waxes on another season!
May 10th, 2018 under Billy Zabka, Ralph Macchio, Suits, YouTube. [ Comments: none ]


YouTube Red just released the first trailer for their new series Impulse and I am completely blown away by the series that debuts on June 6th.

Henry (Maddie Hasson) is a 16-year-old girl who moves to a small town. A bad encounter with a boy brings something out of her she never knew she had, the ability to teleport. Now, she cannot control her new power and no one will believe her. Will she be able to control herself before it is too late?

Impulse is directed by Doug Liman, who has given us the Bourne franchise, The OC and Suits. Can’t wait to see what he does with this show.

Talking about YouTube Red, they finally picked up Cobra Kai for a second season. I seriously cannot stop thinking about how much I love the Karate Kid sequel that has Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) as the underdog and Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) as the bad guy. If you have not binged the 10 episodes, make sure to do it ASAP. I promise you will not be disappointed. It is even better than the original movie and who doesn’t love 1984’s Karate Kid?

Who knew that YouTube Red would be putting out some of the best streaming programming out there and getting some of the biggest names to do their series? I do not think anyone did, but they are. How much do you want to bet that Cobra Kai gets an Emmy nom? It is a critics and fans darling alike. Not many shows can say that, but this one totally can.

BTWF: Billy Zabka for Tilex

Before Billy Zabka was all about Karate in Cobra Kai, he played baseball and watched his mom clean the bathroom with Tilex. How cute was the 18-year-old in that 1984 commercial?

You will get a real kick out of Cobra Kai!
May 2nd, 2018 under Billy Zabka, Ralph Macchio, YouTube. [ Comments: none ]


Back in 1984, we fell in love with The Karate Kid. Danny LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) became an instant sensation with a crane kick. While things turned out great for him, for Johnny Lawrence, the guy who he kicked in the face during that All Valley Karate competition, it was the complete opposite.

Something we find out in the sequel Cobra Kai that is now available to binge on YouTube Red. Lawrence is a down-on-his-luck sort of guy, who lives in a small apartment and works as a handyman. Life sucks for him, and it is going to get even worse. He loses his job, he gets arrested for getting into a fight with some teens who are beating up his next-door neighbor, his stepdad wants to kick him out of his place and some teens smash up his car.

Don’t think it can get any worse for him? It does! His car is towed to LaRusso’s. Danny LaRusso is now a big shot who owns several car dealerships in Los Angeles. He is a huge success with the perfect wife, the perfect son and daughter, and the perfect house. He has everything Johnny does not have. That is why Johnny wants to get his car out of his auto shop before he sees Danny. Since Johnny’s last few days have been really sh!tty, of course, he runs into his old rival.

Just when Johnny does not think that anything good can happen to him, something good actually does happen to him. He decides to bring back Cobra Kai and teach his neighbor how to defend himself with Karate. The student is now the Sensei.

Once Danny hears about that, he will do everything he can to shut it down. Proving old rivalries never die.

Another thing we learned, is you can go back to greatness. When I first heard that the show was from Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, the EPs who gave us the Harold & Kumar franchise, I did not know what to expect. I knew I was going to love it, but I thought maybe it would be a comedy. It has it jokes like Danny gives every customer a Bonsai tree, but it is also pretty series.

We see how Johnny, who had it all in high school, has nothing in his 40’s. While Danny who had nothing is a huge success. All because of one match that changed their lives forever.

For years, we focused on Danny, but now it is time to focus on Johnny. Because this time around he is the underdog you are rooting for. If that is not a brilliant switch up, then I do not know what is.

Plus, it is so well done, everyone is going to fall in love with this show. Just like we did, all those years ago, when we saw The Karate Kid for the first time.

I know Pat Morita is looking down from heaven thinking what a great job they did for his legacy.

On that note, we will see old footage of him and the rest of the movie in this show. It will be used as flashbacks to remind us what happened in the original series. They did a really good job editing the old and new stuff together.

Actually, I love everything about Cobra Kai and cannot stop praising it. Make sure to set some time aside to watch all 10 episode. It is a quick, enjoyable binge.

BTWF: Billy Zabka in The Greatest American Hero
May 1st, 2018 under Before They Were Famous, Billy Zabka. [ Comments: none ]


Before Billy Zabka was the cool kid in The Karate Kid, he was a science geek in The Greatest American Hero. How much do you love seeing the 17-year-old as a nerd back in 1983?
