I painfully watched episodes 1 & 2 for FREE on YouTube, NOT YouTube Red, with episode trailers.

My favorite word...FREE!!

I watched the entire series, twice, for free. Key word - free.

YouTube Red has a free 30 day trial period. Iíve got a few days to cancel before my account gets billed. Thereís really nothing else to make me want to pay for a subscription.

I thought the rest of the episodes were better than the first two.

Thanks for the tip, JR; I just might further painfully further endure to watch the remaining episodes, then cancel it...I'll read the fine print before I do the 30 day trial period.

Painfully, as in, I don't do good watching ANY MA movie and the like without treating the content as though it's a Testing Cycle, and not a movie...I STILL do that to Enter The Dragon. That's ingrained in me so very much, that I judge the content of said MA movie, and not enjoy the entertainment value that it might have.

Very confusing. Where is the link in the YouTube app to buy videos? Only the previews and two free episodes show up.

Ok I did as suggested and got the free trial and have watched the series.

I wont spoiler alert this time but I will say the series will continue past what is available to watch at this time. Makes me wonder if I should have waited until the entire series was out. Not sure how many times you can get a free trial?????

I did like the subtle twists through out. I can't go too deep without giving away specifics but over all I think it was in keeping with the original (lessons). I liked it.

For those that have already seen it, I disliked the so called "most advanced kick". Not at all in keeping with Okinawan MA. Okinawa meets Brazil type of thing. But then again there were many inaccuracies in the original and subsequent movies. It is after all a movie (Hollywood).

All in all I enjoyed it and it brought back a bit of nostalgia.

I fully agree with the ďadvanced kick.Ē Pure rubbish, but youíre correct - itís Hollywood.

And I cringe every single time I see Seiunchin done in the original movies (2 and 3) and this series. Do it right or donít do it at all. Thereís many ways to do that kata, and NONE OF THEM are the way itís done in the movies and series. And donít make it even stupider by having it done to ďfocusĒ like it was done at times (without spoiling it).

I know I sound like some kata snob saying that, but Iím genuinely not. Do it right or do something else IMO. Making up a kata wouldíve been better than the hack job theyíve continually done. Rant over. Unless of course anyone agrees and picks up where I left off

My turn.

I can not stand how they some how have some super secret move in movies but the Kata's and Kihon that they are learning have nothing to do with it.

Hollywood takes very liberal steps in most martial arts movies. I am the worse critic and some times ruin the movie for my friends because I'm constantly correcting the problems with the movie.

I can envision the director saying, "no. That doesn't look right on camera. Lets do this instead. I know it's not a technique from that art and it's from a completely different continent but no one will notice". Its like they are making up their own art as they go but calling it "x". And I'm with you as far as the Kata goes. Do it right or don't do it at all. Drives me crazy!

In the end it's just a movie. If we were looking for any accuracy whatsoever we would probably not entrust Hollywood to bring it to us.

So you have a fellow critic that has the same issues with movies as you. Welcome to the club of cranky movie goers, friend. End of my rant.
