It was quite the journey! The nostalgic fan service was simply stellar, really really how such things should be done. Don't know what someone who hasn't watched the originals may get out of this, but also, who cares? Cobra Kai! Cobra Kai!

This is a great throw-back to the old Karate films. It acknowledges the flaws of morality in the movie [spoiler]that Daniel is actually the instigator[/spoiler] an gives us enough nostalgia to remember the awesomeness that was Karate Kid. I think the storyline mixes the old vs the new very well in many aspects and although you expect it to go wrong at every turn... it never does. I can't wait for the second season. The only problem: who am I rooting for again?

Funny, touching and great fun. I might even like it more than the Karate Kid movies.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
