    Ace, this should be a cheesy fun watch. Nice to see Macchio again, haven't seen him in anything else.

    IS NOTHING SACRED?

    Seriously though, I can't see how that can be anything other than terrible. And Danny Larusso kind of looks like the slutty one out of the Goldengirls now. At least bob will be happy though.

    You should definitely watch My Cousin Vinny as soon as possible.

    The fact that it looks like an April Fool joke but isn’t doesn’t bode well.

    No way he can do the crane kick now. He'll throw his back out.

    He’s older now than Morita was in the first one

    I love it, as if Cobra Kai is this huge, well organised, insidious evil organisation.

    ...It was just the bad guy's gym in an 80s kids film!

    Still going to watch it though.

    Isn't this a YouTube Red thing, so don't you have to be a paid subscriber?

    It looks like it yes, unfortunately. Seems like a first attempt to bring some interesting content to the service.

    To me it looks like one of those modern "hooligan" movies (there's lots of them now), where they're desperately trying to wring excitement and drama from a bunch of overweight people in jeans getting in a punch-up.

    I hope they turn it into a sort of commentary on how sad it is for people to hold grudges from when they were 12.

    Unless you've been crane kicked in the face off someone I don't think you can really pass comment on how long it's ok to hold a grudge.

    One of my all time favs.

    The Outsiders is probably his finest moment. It's truly bizarre seeing him lead in a film where the likes of Tom Cruise and Patrick Swayze have bit parts.

    I would assume Macchio and Zabka will assume mentor roles and the show will focus on their respective protégés.

    If so it could be bearable. The show could focus around the build up to the all valley karate tournament.

    Or it could be pure shite.

    Either way I'll be checking it out.

    Lol indeed.

    In this trailer, looks like they are taking over the world.

    Looks like they're teeing up Larusso to be a bit of a tool and the other guy to be a sympathetic character-ish. But it's probably just trailer misdirection.

    Looking forward to it
