Was Barney Stinson right? Was Johnny Lawrence the good guy all along? That first episode sure does blur the lines.

I'm only halfway through season one (SO NO SPOILERS!) but it's pretty obvious this series is more interested in unpacking some nuance rather than just having a cardboard "good guy vs bad guy" cliché. It seems more focused on complicated, well-developed characters. 

And can I say that William Zabka is a helluva actor. I mean, for real. Dude is absolutely crushing this role as Johnny. I don't follow award shows, but it seems like his performance is worthy of recognition. It's easily as good (if not better) as anything I see from big budget studio movies.

I’m on episode 5 of the first season. The 80s black and white good/bad is gone. There’s a ton of gray now. I’m loving how Johnny is still stuck or hanging onto his glory days and not made made the leap into the social justice 2020s.

Love this show and Johnny is by far my favorite character.  I'm worried about it's future though now that it's on netflix. They'll probably have him and Daniel falling in love with each other and getting married before it's all said and done cause that's just how they roll.

Haven’t watched either of them yet... trying to finish a few other series before I start a new one.  Need to finish s3 of Cobra Kai

I’m starting S2 of Cobra Kai. Kreese is up to something. Just haven’t figured out what yet.
