Obra Kai

Molting

The suffering and journey that the characters went through all these years comes in handy to project for the makers which they do and should use it to draw out the best emotions. The series does lack a major conundrum i.e. they do not possess strength on acting objective which might bite them on the long run. Although watching William Zabka and Ralph Machio share a screen is definitely electrifying which the makers are aware of and uses it wisely.

The technical aspects are better like choreography (action sequence can be tough to project for the mature actors) and background score. The writing is cheesy, corny and questionable with a familiar plot that it mostly walks on but somehow between creation and execution it still works like a charm in here.

The training has some new tricks and turns and the revisitation of the old tale with a newer perspective was a good insight into the character; all of it that is bound perfectly by the gripping screenplay.
