Review: Joker

Rogue Hippo’s Review Score: 9

Preview: Cobra Kai

A co-worker just informed me that YouTube Red is releasing an internet streams series called Cobra Kai.  That’s right, Cobra Kai, as in the evil dojo from Karate Kid.  Cobra Kai takes place 30 years after the events of Karate Kid; and while the times have changed, Daniel and Johnny still can’t seem to get along.  Yes, the original Daniel (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny (William Zabka) are going head to head once again… this time as adults.
