Not bothered. I've watched The Karate Kid so many times I'm practically a black belt in Miyagi-do Karate. When the other inmates see me in the prison yard practicing my crane technique they will sh*t bricks. Anyway, if I'm ever picked up for loitering around a high school I'll just say I was recruiting for my dojo. Prove me wrong, Your Honour.
Kidding aside, after Robby & Hawk stripped off their gis during their final match I was hoping Tory and Sam would follow suit. Both actresses are well over 18, after all. In fact, the kid that plays Bert might be the only cast member who's actually still in high school.
A while back someone mentioned a deleted scene from KK used in a Cobra Kai flashback. Found it on YouTube (playback disabled on other sites, wtf?)
It's ridiculous that these guys have crafted something so meticulous and nuanced when their resume is American Pie, Harold and Kumar, etc.
Massive Karate Kids fans too so you know they will repsect and treat the franchise right
Incredible how the Karate Kid world has been expanded. The films were good fun but now you can watch the four Miyagi-verse films and then go straight into a sequel type television series which will 50 episodes and probably more.
I better stop coughing now or I'll have to get a RAT.
On the flipside of that though, Creed.
Hollywood needs to take note and follow what these guys are doing.
Cobra Kai is how you expanded a franchise and not go for the easy cash grab reboot style that big Hollywood studios seem to do.
they need to find a way to use.Some of the references and homages are extremely subtle as well, they've not gone for lowest denominator stuff. That's also why they've not used 'You're the best' in the music yet. They said it's too obvious and too tacky.

Bit of s5 spoiler, but its not confirmed as yet, but the characters of Miguel and Kreese are potentially unlikely to appear in much of s5 as they have been filiming other shows.
Oh and just as a point of interest in the All Valley Tournament, apparently they did film alternative endings for s4.
These guys are fantastic in writing and creating the show
