I had to skip through the end of the scene in the cliff. There were a few painfully bad and awkward scenes in there.

that scene in particular is so baffling, they're literally hanging on to the edge and could JUST CLIMB UP

and now i'm seeing that the guy who wrote all three movies also co-wrote The Fifth Element, The Transporter, and Taken, wrote Taps for crying out loud, and got paid $135,000 for his first screenplay which was never even made into a film

The best part is "oh there's a new rule that last year's champion doesn't have to fight in the tournament, he can just skip to the finals."

See that doesn't seem totally unrealistic to me. Are there not some tournaments of whatever kind/sport that actually work like that?

I've never seen a single sports event where that is the case.

Especially in one where the contender would have been punched and kicked all day, and then has to fight a fresh opponent.

At that point it's just a title belt that you have to win a tournament to have a shot at first.

Daniel rides a torpedo launched from a submarine headed toward a battleship, jumps off the torpedo onto a airplane, jumps from the airplane into a car (that jumped) and gets in the car and lands.

I'm not lying. I also saw the sphinx and I think Lao Pan from Big trouble in little china town.

EDIT: I missed a motorcycle jump onto the airplane before riding the torpedo.

Didn't the creators of Cobra Kai say they considered everything Karate Kid to be canon?

Everything?!

Aha, right. Hadn't thought of it that way. Yeah that'd be absurd... not be a fair test of the current champion's abilities at all.

yeah it's Pro Wrestling rules which are obviously not terribly relevant to "real" tournaments

Just finished the first season and I cannot believe how entertaining that was. Right from the beginning I thought this would be some cheap knockoff rebranding, and that all odds of this being good, let alone entertaining, were very bad.
I couldn't have been more wrong. It was such a popcorn fun show every week, and the energy never went down. Feels like there's still a lot of space to breathe for season 2 also.
Surprisingly funny, and surprisingly good watch for sure.

There are lost episodes of course. Stories that were commissioned but never made. Or made but misfiled, post broadcast. Sheer incompetence, of course.

I wanted to reflexively kick you in the face when I saw your word choice.
