Have any of you deviants seen this masterpiece yet on the new YouTube Red yet? I'm absolutely loving it. I've watched the first two episodes for free but think I'm going to go in for the free month. YouTube Red is using a similar plan to launch the platform that the WWE Network used. Try us free of charge for 30 days and then I think it's $9.99 a month. Might be worth it to cut the ads out of the videos but I digress.

The roles have been subtly reversed by yet they have not. Johnny Lawrence is the perfect anti-hero and makes Cold Stone Steve Austin look like Dory Funk Jr. Johnny is down on his luck and Daniel-san is a highly successful capitalist. The Latino kid who plays Johnny's foil is a brilliant actor and very likable. His crew of nerd buddies in high school are hilarious. The high school heels who pick on them are totally reprehensible. In my opinion the characters that are supposed to be sympathetic are, and the heels are truly heels (watch this show Vince).

I'm not a TV guy and there are virtually no shows I have watched religiously since the Sopranos went off the air. This one has got me hook, line, and sinker though. I want to see Johnny finally get his revenge on that swarmy little dago.

In this show, is Johnny a 17 year old high school student, and is Daniel-san a 43 year old trying to play a high school student?  I want a realistic storyline based on the popular events that transpired in the original.  I would also like to know how Kimiko felt as a 17 year old girl having to do kissing scenes with a then 54 year old Daniel-san, but I fear we will have to wait for the Youtube Red series "Okinawa COWARD!!!!!!!"

This is the beauty of it. It's completely immersed in 2018. Plus, there's a ton of really funny inside jokes pertaining to the original movie. Really funny shit. Johnny is stuck in the 80's to an extent of a guy who peaked in high school but these aren't cartoon characters. Also both Macchio and William look really good for their age.

I went to Wikipedia to find out how old Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are. The former is 56 and looks at least a decade younger. The latter is 52 and also looks younger than his age although not as dramatically. The big shock was learning that Zabka was nominated for an Oscar in 2004 for Best Live Action Short Film as a producer of the short. He also was one of the writers although he did not act in it.

I saw the first episode and i liked it. Zabka is a good actor and i like the continuation of his characters story and it gives him some depth. i think a lot of people have things that happened when they were teens or kids that still bother them or have impacted them as adults.  so far this is way better than any of the bad sequels they did. now if only they could get Elizabeth Shue to make an appearance.;)

The biggest shocker of this sequel is the realization that Ed Asner is still alive.

Saw the first two episodes yesterday, and I totally loved it. How do I get to see the rest of them without subscribing?

Yeah, this is very well written. The role reversal is great. Johnny now lives on the other side of the tracks while Daniel moved on up. As already mentioned, Johnny is truly the ant hero. This might be the only role Zabka ever played where he's likable. He was typecast as a bully heel.

I’m surprised at the good reviews here. I thought the concept was totally ridiculous and embarrassing and I’m so over re-boots and sequels of ‘80s properties. But if it’s actually done well I might have to give it a shot.

Always remember what a douchebag he was as Jack, Audrey’s boyfriend in European Vacation.  Also believe the role reversal works because in 2018, Macchio can very easily come off as an arrogant prick, while the sympathetic babyface role suits Zabka after sensai Creese beat the shit out of him in front of everybody after losing the All Valley in ‘84.  Real life would dictate that Johnny would totally end up down and out because he had all his confidence and dignity choked out of him in front of his boys.  
Thanks for fucking me over, WongLee, now I’m gonna end up paying for the rest of these eventually.
