Okay, this is a laughable question, but in the school fight scene, they must've CGI'ed in those locker knobs and latches (or more probably, the entire locker-filled hall itself), right? Because getting your hiney kicked is one thing, but no one is shrugging off repeatedly being thrown back-first into locker knobs and latches. If anyone has a link to any of those "before and after CGI" videos like were done with Game of Thrones, please let me know.

I would guess that they probably just built a set of lockers out of rubber and painted them to look like metal. That plus some padding under the actor or stunt-person’s clothes would make it relatively safe to get slammed into.

Yeah, realistically that school brawl looked like it would have landed a lot of people in the hospital with serious injuries if not fatalities, and arrests. As dramatic as it was to see Kreese take over Cobra Kai, I feel like in the real world they’d get shut down as being a gang. I’m very curious to see how they move forward in S3.

Re: the tragedy of Johnny and Daniel. That accidental double date was heartbreaking in the best way. Like, that they (and we) got a glimpse at the AU where they could be friends, but watching it you know that disaster is lurking.

I got to fangirl briefly to Zabka at his autograph table at DragonCon, and made it to the Cobra Kai panel which was terrific.

I just finished E6, “Take a Right,” that Garrison appeared in. I thought it was extremely decent of the show to bring back the original actors to reprise their roles as Johnny's fellow Cobras. The fight scene was a nice touch.

How the hell does this school fight go on so long and stretch across the entire building and no teachers intervene for that long?
