You asked for it, so here it is! It took a while, but FINALLY, Unfunny Nerd Tangent rates and reviews the nostalgic show that’s brought sentimental memories flooding back to even the most cynical karate-dojo masters – Seasons 1 & 2 of Cobra Kai.

Retro-sequels and long-time-reunions are tough to get right, especially in this day and age of the complete reboot (and rip-off). But as we all know, the original is usually the best, so when we sat down to discuss why Cobra Kai has taken the world by storm (for young and old), we were swamped with potential tangents to delve into.

What have Johnny and Daniel been up to these past 35 years? Does a new generation of ‘karate kids’ live up to the mantle of their forbearers?  And what happened to Mr. Miyagi?

Well, we flipped the script, dove into the back of the cement truck and cranked up the glam metal for this one to prove one way or another whether ‘Mercy is for the Weak’ or not.

Also Diora Baird.
