Karate Kid returns in a YouTube Red Original TV Show

in movies •  8 months ago

Starring the original actors Ralph Macchio (Daniel LaRusso) and William Zabka (Johnny Lawrence) are the main rivals.

Will Johnny Lawrence get revenge or will good triumph? While this looks really exciting, I am skeptical it can offer enough content to carry a series. A movie? Hell ya I'd watch it. I'll still watch a TV show, but you know they will have Daniel losing at first only to come through in the end. That worked great in the first movie, but outside of playing on him being an old out of shape man, I can't see it being all that effective the second time around.

I'm looking forward to checking it out, Karate Kid was an iconic film when I grew up. I am looking forward to watching it with my son soon.

Check out the trailer, it does make the show look like it will be a lot of fun.

Netflix has been focusing on their original content which uses the same strategy Xbox and PlayStation does with their exclusives. Give people something you can't get anywhere else, and you hook them into your ecosystem. Netflix has been sacrificing mainstream media for their own original works. Rumors are Apple is looking to get in on the action as well with their own original series and movies. YouTube isn't far behind now.

While it sucks for people trying to watch mainstream media while cutting the cord.

Some of the best content has been the result of these efforts.

  • Black Mirror
  • Stranger Things
  • Narcos
  • Ozark
  • Bosch
  • The Man in The High Castle

Hi ipromote,

Wow, I watched the classic Karate Kid, both of them while back when movies first came out. I was practicing Tae Kwon Do at that time and these movies really motivated me to spar harder with my opponents when sparing.

Love them since I like a good martial arts movies.....This new movie should be a killer fun to watch.


There was a part 3 right ? Then the two knockoffs , will Smith’s son most recent and Hillary’s female version with Yhe same teacher so maybe that was legit a part 4 kinda ? Either way I think this is played out

I sent 0.500sbd to ipromote for upvote which is not my first time, until I promote declared it's not and upvote bot, it seems ipromote is intentionally punishing me and not refunding me back, it's the 17th day it think we should be fair to one another.

This is proof that I once used ipromote.


I am not a bot, I turned it off and removed it from the bot tracker well over a month ago, I also set it up to auto refund for over 3 weeks. But I cannot run an auto refund script forever. I sent your 0.500 SBD back.


Thanks for replying, and thanks for refunding me most importantly, am really glad. Now I know better.


bro please give me upvote


Not another one! This is 4 now?
