Cobra Kai is fun, funny, and light-hearted, with a lot of kick-ass karate, but it's also heartfelt, and while reverent to the classic Karate Kid series it follows, it also cleverly remixes and re-contextualizes themes and situations from those movies.

OMFG, what a fantastic couple of episodes this time. Some of our favorites ever, with such intensity, humor, and heart. Happy to have our friend and Cobra Kai fan Erica filling in this week for Richard who’s out working on wedding stuff for his daughter. You can find our contact info and all our ot...

25: “Playing with Fire” & “Downward Spiral” (S5E3&4)

So much Cobra Kai greatness in these two episodes, with callbacks from the movies, tons of laughs, conflict, drama, heart. A bit of a charged episode from us this week, as we debate whether Daniel is his own worst enemy. You can find our contact info and all our other shows at: podcastica.com   Jas...

Woo hoo, Cobra Kai is back and things are moving fast! Lots to love about these first two episodes, with the familiar Cobra Kai charm, and a few unexpected twists and turns too. So glad to be back for season 5 :)  Rima, Richard, and Jason would all appreciate it if you’d subscribe to our standalone...

Wow, what a finale! The tournament of all tournaments. And so much to talk about. We’re joined by our longtime friend Dan to talk it all out. And that’s it for our coverage of Cobra Kai for the season. We had as much fun as always. It really is my (Jason’s) favorite show to cover :) And thanks to a...

22: "Minefields" & "Party Time" (S4E7&8)

As parents and with Richard being a teacher, some of the issues raised in this series and in these couple of episodes in particular, specifically around screen dependencies, really hit us close to home. Little bit of a different type of conversation from us this week around that, and I think you’ll...

21: "Match Point" & "Kicks Get Chicks" (S4E5&6)

We’re not sure why it didn’t occur to us that Cobra Kai would give us a tournament-style rematch between Daniel and Johnny, but how kickass is it that it did?!! So great. Also this week, Johnny learns feminism. :P We’re happy to be joined this week by our friend Damian, host of the Watched It in th...

Of course Johnny is an Iceman guy over Maverick, lol. Rima and Rich and I are having as much fun as ever podcasting about another excellent season of Cobra Kai. In these two eps, we noticed they hit that theme of surrogate father figures harder than ever. You can find our contact info and all our o...

Cobra Kai is back! This is one of our favorite shows to watch and to podcast about, and these first two episodes did not disappoint! Johnny Lawrence getting the Miyagi-do chore-style training treatment is sublime :) Join Richard, Rima, and Jason as we talk it out. Show support and get ad-free episo...

18: The Karate Kid Part III

What can I say about this movie? There’s a surprising amount that the show Cobra Kai draws from it. And I actually did find little nuggets of that old Karate Kid magic in it. But mostly it’s a huge letdown and we don’t pull our punches in this episode! IMO it’s definitely worth listening to the end...

Holy crap, what a great couple of episodes to cap off an awesome season! So many great moments. There are a lot of shows and movies capitalizing on our nostalgia these days, but for our money, Cobra Kai is doing it best. Hope you guys enjoyed this season as much as we did :) I’m not sure what we’ll...
