It should really be called "Cobra Kai -- Johnny's Revenge" It is more than 30 years after the events of the original Karate Kid movie. Daniel is a successful and wealthy car dealer while Johnny is a "Down and out" general labourer with a drinking problem. Johnny then restarts Cobra Kai and ends up teaching Karate to all the kids being bullied at the local high school. Meanwhile, butthurt Daniel tries to stop Johnny. The show also tells Johnny's side of the story and casts him in a more human light. Those of you who are contrarian should love the show. Same with those who love a good underdog story. Anyone who saw the first Karate Kid movie should love the show too. There are even some funny references to Karate Kid 3. And for those that have not seen the original Karate Kid movie, I am sorry to hear you grew up under a rock.
