I swear I made a post. Wonder if it got lost when Mook changed the thread name or something.
In for S2. Finished S1 last night. Bow down to their handling of the show. Excellent music, LOVE the selections. Particularly enjoyed the Challenger road test and later bar scene.
Oh well, spoilers.
Miguel won the tournament, but lost something more valuable. Johnny is disappointed in Miguel. But he'll be redeemed I'm sure.
Hawk/Lip kid looks like he's going to be an unredeemable character.
Robby seems to be shaping up, but part of me wonders if he's playing a longer con game. Shall find out in S2.
Poor Virgin kid, got knocked the fuck out.
Amanda is surprisingly able for someone who apparently gave up the training 8 years previous. Though, based on Miyagi's tombstone, would have been alive long enough to train her a bit.
If Daniel and Johnny got into an actual fight, I'm betting on Johnny. Daniel looks out of practice compared to Johnny. I wonder if they'll do some training to get both actors into better shape for more physically demanding stuff in S2. I'd like to see them face off again.
Just watched the series over the last 2 days. It was far better than I expected, with plenty of witty comments, and a good story line. The parallels to the original story were entertaining, and it was great to see the backstory of Johnny. It was refreshing to see that every character exhibits flaws in their relationships and personality, and even though everything doesn't work out the way you expect, they still have to make the best of it.
