To determine what makes it so binge-worthy, we enlisted a Millennial and a Boomer who have never seen Cobra Kai but were willing to watch the first episode of the first season with the sole purpose of providing their thoughts as a Millennial (adults age 26 to 41) and a Boomer (adults age 58 to 76).
Cobra Kai is a sequel to The Karate Kid and takes place 34 years after the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) is now a successful businessman, and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) is struggling to make ends meet. Everything changes when Johnny meets a young boy, Miguel (Xolo Maridueña), who convinces him to reopen the Cobra Kai dojo.
Here’s what our test subjects had to say after their first viewing.
