Series may be unrealistic, but that makes it fun

With the fourth season released and season five on the way, Cobra Kai has proven to be one of the most viewed series in the country. 

The show is a continuation of the storyline from the Karate Kid movies. Ralph Macchio, who plays Daniel Larusso, and William Zabka, who plays Johnny Lawrence, are back at it as they are forced to work together and prepare for the All Valley tournament. 

Xolo Maridueña (Miguel), Mary Mouser (Sam), Tanner Buchanan (Robby) are up and coming actors who are main characters in the show. Disney stars Peyton List and Jacob Bertrand are also involved in the show as well. 

While the acting is mildly terrible and the plot is definitely unrealistic at times, this series has proven to be an addictive, binge worthy show. 

In fact, shows that have some unrealistic moments tend to be the most addictive shows. Whether it is a small detail or it is an entire situation between characters, those moments can be defining ones in the franchise’s storyline.

As the series moves on, it continues to bring back older characters from all three Karate Kid movies. Introducing Krease (Martin Cove) to the series was a smart move, though this continual bringing back of earlier characters is getting to be too much. 

People who understand martial arts might be underwhelmed due to inaccurate portrayals in the show. However, for other viewers, these fight scenes are iconic and fun because they are entertaining and exciting to watch. The flips, kicks and high-action fighting scenes really make all the hype for the show. 

As the plot continues to thicken, Cobra Kai is a show worth watching and binging. It has great dialogue and strong connections between the characters. This series really proves that shows with unrealistic qualities can still be amazing.
