Fear does not exist in this dojo! On this episode of the Popzara Podcast our own sensei Nathan Evans is joined by Kevin from StoryDive to talk, spoil, explore and geek over the second season of Cobra Kai, the follow-up of last year’s breakout Karate Kid continuation that crane-kicked onto YouTube Originals on May 2nd.
It’s ten-episodes of heartfelt 80s nostalgia that further explores the epic rivalry between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), a relationship made even more troublesome by the re-emergence of original Cobra Kai founder John Kreese (Martin Kove).
If you’ve binged the entire season already and still think you’re the best around, Kevin has meticulously crafted a spoiler-filled, Easter Egg revealing video recap guaranteed to make even the most devout Miyagi fans smile while still karate chopping themselves silly for missing the most obvious callbacks.
