Cobra Kai’s season 2 trailer will leave you breathless
April 4th, 2019 under Billy Zabka, Ralph Macchio, YouTube. [ Comments: none ]

The first full trailer for Cobra Kai season 2 is out now and I need some oxygen because I lost my breath. I am not the type of girl, who is into Dick Flicks, but there is something so exciting about this first look for the YouTube Premium show that is back on April 24th. I felt like I was there with Daniel LaRusso, Johnny Lawrence and all of their students as I watched it.

If someone would have told us 35 years ago that we would be rooting for Lawrence, no one would, but Barney Stinson, would have believed that person. The creators of the companion series for the 1984 movie have done such a great job they make us feel sorry for a hated character and see a beloved on in a new dark light.

Both Billy Zabka and Ralph Macchio have done such great jobs with the role reversal, it blows my mind. It also makes wonder how all the television award shows ignored them.

Not only because of their acting, but this was last season’s best new show. Like a good potato chip, you cannot just watch one episode at a time. You need to binge them all and then you are pissed there are no new episodes to watch. Therefore, you watch it over and over and over again.

If you missed the first season, then watch it on YouTube premium now. I am not the only person who said this is the best new show of last year. Find out why so many of us are saying this. Like the original film, everyone can enjoy it.


Cobra Kai season 2 looks even better than the first one
March 7th, 2019 under Billy Zabka, Ralph Macchio, YouTube. [ Comments: none ]

To me, YouTube Premium’s Cobra Kai is the best new show of last year, so I was curious if they would be able to recreate the magic for the second season. Unlike Karate Kid 2, I think they will not only be able to match it but they will even exceed it.

I say that because once I saw that Daniel-sun (Ralph Macchio) is teaching karate classes for free in the trailer, I was like, oh sh!t. I knew that was going to piss off Johnny (Billy Zabka). Which means their rivalry will continue on, 35 years after it began.

If you are not familiar with the YouTube Original series, it is the follow up to Karate Kid, but this time we see things through Johnny Lawrence’s eyes. Now the bad guy is the good one and Daniel LaRusso is the bully. How freaking awesome is that?

If you missed the first season, I highly recommend watching it ASAP, 55 million people can’t be wrong, can we? I would even tell strangers to watch it because that is how much I love it. Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald created a true masterpiece that everyone can enjoy, so go enjoy it.

Before you go watch it for the first time or the 34th, mark down April 24th on your calendars because that is when John Kreese (Martin Kove) comes back to rattle things up at Cobra Kai. The bad a$$ show got even more bad a$$!


Conan O’Brien finally broke Jordan Schlansky!!!
November 30th, 2018 under Conan O'Brien, Ralph Macchio. [ Comments: none ]

Conan O’Brien made like an Alphaville song and was Big in Japan. Like his previous trips, he brought know-it-all Jordan Schlanksy with him. This time they sat down at a restaurant and talked about why the PA is so obsessed with the country.

Schlansky told his boss that he fell in love with Japan after watching Karate Kid 2. He spewed out that the fact that film starring Ralph Mahk-e-o was filmed entirely in Okinawa. He was proud he knew all of that information.

But then…Conan took out his phone and told his employee to press play. It was a video of Ralph Ma-chi-o telling him that movie was actually filmed in Hawaii. After the actor said “sayonara”, you can actually see Schlansky tear up as he found out a big part of his childhood was a fraud. Which has me and Conan laughing until it hurts!

I mean a simple IMDB search will tell you where the feature was filmed and was not Japan.

Finally, How I Met Your Mother was so right, Daniel-san was the real villain in the franchise.


Is Ralph Macchio really 56?
June 29th, 2018 under Are they really their age?, Ralph Macchio. [ Comments: none ]

This year Ralph Macchio returned to the role that made him famous over 30 years and he has not aged a day since then. Don’t believe me, then look at how ridiculously hot The Karate Kid appears to be in this photo for SI. The 56-year-old, yes 56, is so insanely sexy here, I would swear it was for GQ instead. I would buy whatever he is selling for my man if I had one.

And on my lonely nights, Monday through Monday, I watch he and Billy Zabka is their series Cobra Kai on YouTube. It is the best show I have seen since Greg Berlanti’s Political Animals in 2012. If you have never seen the sequel to The Karate Kid, do it today. It is 10-hours of pure greatness. It sets the standard so high, I am having problems watching the fall pilots because none of them are anywhere as good as Cobra Kai. I promise you will be pleasantly surprised. They better all get Emmy nominations.


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.
