PERSONAL THOUGHTS / QUESTIONS |
It's cool to see behind-the-scenes videos and images. There is quite the rapport or camaraderie when the cameras are not rolling, and even outtakes / funny moments.
The editing or montage of the tournament throughout E9 and E10 was thrilling / spectular. While Mitch might have flubbed up his time on the mat haha, Kyler made it up for him during his stint in the skills competition - I did not see that coming as well. He is either genuinely crazy, or just has a hard head haha.
Some characters (from the films or previous seasons) that would be nice to see return: Freddie Fernandez (most fans blame him for instigating the Daniel / Johnny feud via that beach party invite in the first film haha), Mike Barnes, Dutch (although it's been confirmed that the actor has no interest), Principal Lopez (he needs to answer on why he did not re-hire Stingray as security haha).
At the beginning of E8, did anyone guess it was Stingray the first-time when the camera was focused on the fat hands at first? haha. Stingray's character might become darker and less of a baffoon (if he sides with Silver).
I'm looking forward to Chozen's possible influence for S5. It is also possible that Kreese might be redeemed next season (if that is ever possible). Or more twists.
"Match Point" - that is one of my favorites. And the last episode.
Most fans think Kyler is just a "generic bully". That was probably the original intention from the get-go from S1. So I think it is highly unlikely that we'll see a brief back story or background for Kyler unfortunately - but you never know. Here's the deal - the character was originally created for any ethnicity or there wasn't any ethnicity / race in mind. Which gives me a bit of comfort. However - he is one not to be messed with. He just needs more tournament experience haha.
To heck with spoilers. Just finished S4, and it was a rollercoaster of humor, emotions and twists. I'll most likely have more specific thoughts later.. But the gist of it - it's got most of us already anticipating for S5. This is the season of Terry Silver - apparently, we find out that he had no interest in returning back to his former life. Sort of reformed. Until Kreese slowly manipulates him into becoming loyal again - the "you owe me" type deal. And by the end, Terry Silver appears more dangerous than ever. Enter Barnes? Enter Chozen for sure. That was the surprise.
The two-episode tournament at the end was quite thrilling. I'm glad they changed things up a bit by adding a women's division / skills competition. Times change, things change. The results appeared obvious from the get-go, since we all know what rivalries the show is centered on.
Kyler's background was not explored this season. It's understandable, as the show is a large ensemble and there is only so much story to go around. Plus - the focus on new characters and other characters that were not given much attention - this time, Anthony. And the new kid Kenny - a bullied kid who eventually turns into a bully or a bona fide threat for Cobra Kai. New characters are pretty much a given for every new season, as that gives the show more flavor.
The return of Stingray and a cameo from Aisha (she gained back that weight) - enough said haha.
I'm up to E6 - should finish the rest today. The hype is indeed real. Won't go into a review until a week or two later - when most have already seen it.
But here's a minor E1 first scene spoiler - the introduction to Terry Silver's return is in a stylish fashion. What better way than to having him play "La Campanella" - as if he became a pianist instead of a toxic waste dumper in his previous life haha. Other than becoming a vegan / stock market guru or something like that.
