On their voyage, the crew has missed out on a devastating catastrophe that has made Earth look almost as desolate as the scenes of outer space.

Cobra Kai, Season Three

The show’s newest season picks up 30 years after the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, and the dojos are still fighting.

Daniel (Ralph Macchio) tells his nemesis, “We can’t let them suffer because of our issues.” As the clip shows, there’s still plenty of martial arts combat. (January)
