Iíve watched the first 5 (I think episodes). Pretty good. So far I like season 1 better, but I feel more compelled to immediately watch the next episode after each one ends than I did in season 1. Season 1 was far more back-story, whereas season 2 is more here-and-now (although thereís enough flashbacks).

Interesting how the storylines are progressing so far.

Binge watched the whole of season 2. I think I'm with JR, season 1 was more interesting. But still really enjoyed the whole plot line of season 2. Stingray is a hoot.
Favorite scene: "Johnnies dream with the beer"....

Just finished watching the series.

I honestly donít know why I liked season 1 better. Maybe less storylines and more depth to things that couldíve been developed further? Kinda a more on less thing?

Daniel was going too far in the Cobra Kai direction of teaching fighting and not enough moral lessons. He seemed more intent on beating and outdoing Cobra Kai than actually teaching his own students. Maybe that took some of the magic away from the season? And his problems with his wife werenít dealt with in much depth. There was no big coming to an understanding between them. Maybe a few more episodes wouldíve been the answer? I think a little more drama and comedy and slightly less fighting wouldíve worked better. The best parts of season 1 IMO were the crazy things Johnny said and did to the students. Like when Hawk before his transformation said ďI might be on the spectrumĒ and Johnny replies ďI donít know what that is, but you need to get off it pronto.Ē There werenít enough of those IMO.

If any of you watch Orange Is The New Black, the last episode of Cobra Kai reminded me of the OITNB season that ended with the riot and the girl holding a guard at gunpoint.

But I really liked it. Despite all that, I was more drawn to the next episodes that I was with season 1. Already waiting for season 3 and googling reports for it.

Looks like season 3 will be free for all to view, they will have ads instead. Youtube Red being axed I think.

YouTube Red no longer exists, in a sense. It has been renamed YouTube Premium.

If subscription YouTube folds, no matter what itís called, Iíd be willing to bet the series gets sold to someone like Netflix. Iím pretty sure the series was pitched to several companies with some interest, but I donít think they foresaw the viewership numbers it actually drew. Iím quite certain someone else would want it, and with a company like Netflix backing it, Iím sure the budget would be far bigger.

I have YouTubeTV, and that's how I watch it. I wonder if they are trying to push YouTube Premium subscribers to YouTube TV?
