Hopefully it can go well past S5. It's one of my favorite shows now. My only complaint is that the seasons are only 10 episodes. ;) S5 can't get here soon enough.

They're probably going to have to start rotating out the kids though due to age. Hopefully they look to Friday Night Lights for that. FNL did a really good job at swapping out the kids as they graduated and kept things fresh.

I loved FNL but they messed up with a number of the kids on that show as far as changing their ages after the first season. That's my main complaint with that show, which I often overlook because I do love the series but after the first season. Some kids stuck around longer than they should.

With Cobra Kai they've got Sam and Miguel talking college now so they're liking a year and away from leaving. That would be for the best as far as overall continuity is concerned. They did a good job adding the Payne kid, I think his name was Kenny, and they could flesh out 2-3 more kids that are around the age of Daniel's son but I think it'd be best to end it on a high note than drag it out.

Did you get through the whole season? What did you think of the final shot?
I actually jumped up in excitement! I think between the last two episodes I got way too excited way too many times!

I'm fully expecting Hillary Swank to appear at some point now!

Yeah that was the same reaction I had. Can't wait to see where that goes.

Best season so far! Gawd, I hate how much I love this show!

I had hopes this would be my favorite season but that goes to last season. This one was good all the way through but I don't hit greatness much, if at all.

My favorite KK movie is #3 so I was pumped for the return of Terry Silver and have wanted to see that since the very beginning of this series but his return was anticlimactic.

I didn't care much for the infighting between Kreese and Silver. I really didn't like Silver being the more ruthless one. Maybe if that happened over time, fine, but it seemed way too fast. I get Kreese has a soft spot for Johnny but for Silver to see that and exploit it so quickly, especially after Kreese and Johnny started fighting with each other. Like I said, it was too fast.

I liked everything but that arc was too quick. I didn't like the ending of it though, with the whole implicating Kreese in the assault of Ray. That was hokey with how it was done.

I'd like to see Snake and Tournament Bad Boy Mike Barnes next year. That would be amazing. I know Sean Kanan, who played Barnes, has spoken positively about the series a few times and has said he'd love to return. Hopefully that's in the works now that Silver is back so the groundwork has been laid within that world.

Just saw this and thought Id share here. There are season 4 spoilers included, of course, so don't read it unless you finished the recent season or don't mind having the ending spoiled.

There really aren't any concrete spoilers for season 5 though as everything is presented as speculation and there's no surprises listed. However it appears they shot seasons 4 & 5 back to back. That means season 5 is already in the can. Hopefully that means we get season 5 this summer rather than December or next January.

I still keep holding out hope that Mike Barnes is Tory's deadbeat dad. If they are going to use season 5 as a redemption season for Tory, and it appears they might be, he would be the perfect foil.

Feels a little tiny town.

Personally, I want to see them weave back in Lamar from Revenge Of The Nerds back into the Kai’s (he was one of them in the original), which could then bring in his tormentor from Atoms college... Ogre!

And then he could then bring in...

JVCD!

TOTALLY ridiculous, but I think That’s when the show is at its best. Might as well totally lean all the way in! You can’t tell me those dudes probably couldn’t use the work.

I mean... the reveal of the last shot just didn’t do anything for me. They already did that arc and no one cares about that dude.

But Lamar to Ogre to JCVD?! Peoples heads would explode.
