One line synopsis: the Karate Kid and the blonde jock that he crane-kicked in the head, 30 years later.
This show has no right to be good. But it is. I’m 6 episodes in, and it’s just a ton of fun. Recommend it.
I don’t know if it would hold up if you hadn’t watched the Karate Kid and the terrible sequels back 30 years ago. Maybe millenials won’t get it. I expect to see a backlash against the orientalism any minute now, because it totally is. But that’s the point, after all, isn’t it?
I don’t know if this show justifies YouTube Red existing on its own, it’s no Handmaid’s Tale or Daredevil, but Google finally made something worth watching.
And of course they have a free trial month like every other service, so you won’t have to pay anything to watch it.
