    Halfway through season 3 and loving it. I was afraid things might change too much moving to Netflix but its just as good, if not better. They really caught lightning in a bottle with this show. It shouldn't be as good as is it but each episode is better than the last.

    Robby’s storyline is the weakest part of this season, but the stuff with Daniel/Johnny is gold.

    Not surprising as their storyline is really the only one that adults care about. All the kids are stupid (but obviously necessary). Hawk being the dumbest.

    The kids are pretty bad but I do like Miguel. He's the only one I like. Tory is ok. I dislike her less this season but the rest are just sort of plot devices.

    Did you watch the entire Season 3? Big fan of the end.

    No, not yet. Only two episodes in. Waiting to watch with my boys who have shown some interest.

    It seems they hinted at Terry Silver all season with the Kreese flashbacks and the phone call at the end but Thomas Ian Griffin has already declined a return. Its been long enough that recasting wouldn't be awful but I hope they convinced him to come back. I know the kid who played Mike Barnes has expressed interest in doing something on the show also but I hope its Silver who shows up to help Kreese.

    They called him by name in the flashbacks. So it’s either him or a recast.

    Ok I couldn't recall if they called him by name or not.

    Surprise
    TVLINE | At the end of the finale, Kreese reached out to his old army buddy Terry for help. Has that role been cast yet and, if so, who will be playing him?

    HURWITZ | Just because Kreese reached out to somebody, doesn’t necessarily mean that he’s returning to the show. That said, on our show, we try to bring back the original actor who played characters in the past as much as possible. We all loved the character of Terry Silver in The Karate Kid 3 and his portrayal by Thomas Ian Griffith, so if that character was to return for Season 4, we’d hope that he’d be the one playing him.

    SCHLOSSBERG | There’s no confirmation, anything can happen, really. But I will say: If you do love Terry Silver, this is probably the best show to tune into to see if he does show up. [Laughs] But we can’t promise anything at this point because it’s all a mystery.

    I believe there is one instance where Kreese's buddy in Vietnam is called "Silver." So that would confirm it's the character.

    I hadn't quite watched the end of S2 and Netflix spoiled for me
    That Miguel gets injured and in a wheelchair
    When I let my Netflix go idle and show me TV shows. SMH.

    That sucks but it is a major plot point in season 3 that Miguel's story is driven by. I think the season should still be enjoyable knowing that though. I'm sure you can guess how he ends up in his situation but it was a good episode that helps explain where other stories are going.

    I pretty much hate watched seasons 1 and 2 and got through four episodes of season 3 before I finally just gave in to the show and started to love the ridiculousness and bad acting.

    these guys created a Miyagiverse.

    that’s pretty amazing.
