At this point, the two main characters, Daniel and Johnny, are imo artificially at odds. They're just teasing out this tension for the sake of more story. The two characters are so reasonable, and see eye to eye on a ton of things.
I'm happy that I get to see these characters again, but it really frustrates me. I really want things this story to stick a landing, but I doubt that's going to happen. It sucks for me because Karate Kid is one of my all-time favorite movies. I suppose on the upside, even though it's not perfect, and kinda forced onward, at least there's... something to watch.
This is actually why I am hesitating to take the time to subscribe and watch.
The first season did such a great job of making itself realistic, with Daniel and Johnny in the present day as adults and how things would be playing out with Daniel as a car salesman and Johnny as a down-on-his-luck tradesman living in 21st century SoCal with its culture so different from 1984.
I want to watch more of that, character driven stories, not manufactured plot.
