Cobra Kai (2018) – A Quick Capsule TV Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Fan of the 80’s version of the karate kid? Well welcome to what could well be the best TV show of 2018 so far.  Cobra Kia is a funny, clever and , at times surprising return to the world of Hill Valley which delivers in turn both considerable nostalgia whilst managing to connect with a whole new modern audience.  At it’s heart it’s a story about family and finding yourself as a teenager, set against the backdrop of the world created by the original film back in the 80’s.  With LOTS of Karate.  Come on – how could that NOT be cool! A must watch.

Best Bit: The tournament
