Cobra Kai takes place thirty-four years after the original film and follows a "down-and-out Johnny Lawrence, who seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, reigniting his rivalry with a now successful Daniel LaRusso, who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi. The show is about two men addressing past demons and present frustrations the only way they know how: through karate."

Okay, cards on the table, the original Karate Kid was my favourite movie and I'm still in love with Elisabeth Shue's character Ali Mills (she'd never do what Karate Kid 2 said she did to Daniel, damn you writers! ...but I forgive you). :)
Despite a slow start to the series, Cobra Kai actually was a fun walk down memory lane with so many great nods to the original movie. The writers did a good job with spreading out these touchstones from the original story to the various diverse characters and set up some interestingly twisting story lines. Sure, there were some eye roll moments but for the most part it was a fun series and I'm looking forward to season 2!

Good show, with potential, which I'm sure Barney Stinson would enjoy.
