Cobra Kai on YouTube is still way better than it has any right to be. The guy who plays Johnny Lawrence actually learned to act at some point.
I'm just glad that my working theory about Daniel-son being an aggressive asshole has born fruit.
I am entertained by the use the show has made of the "Daniel was a bully" narrative.
Because there was no suspension of disbelief. Daniel-son was an aggressive asshole. Lawrence literally went out of his way to avoid conflict but Daniel-son just used those times to keep needling him. They were teenagers and the only one who tried to be a grownup was Lawrence. How much is a teenager supposed to take before they do the stupid teenager routine?
No doubt Daniel kept the conflict going when he didn't need to. At the same time, Lawrence and his brethren were pretty serious pricks. I do find Lawrence's character arc in this show interesting. Come to think of it, his character is the only one I'm really invested in.

I have only watched an episode or two but Daniel-son being a car salesman was pretty awesome.

Dead to Me is soapy, but very good and entertaining for what it is. I recommend it!

Fair warning: it does deal with death of a spouse (and death of a parent when you are a kid), and with pregnancy loss, particularly in the first few episodes.
