Episode 113: Cobra Kai - Season 5 - Official Trailer
1:03PM Jan 18, 2023
Whoa, just curious. What can the just curious media this is let's talk Cobra Kai. I'm Jason Connell.
And I'm Sal Rodriguez.
All right, so we are back for another episode.
I mean, they're all special. We call it specialists. But this is very, very special. This is I think our first official season five. trailer is this
official is this.
I'm doing something with my hands
here. Yeah, I like that. I like that. It is. It is season fives Official Trailer. Which means we're on the cusp of this season. This is how it works. First Look photos. Official Trailer Season.
Yeah, we saw this coming. I just didn't know when but we saw it coming.
Yeah, exactly. And we had a hint. Yesterday there was this kind of bizarre tomorrow video. I tried to before the trailer. It reminded me of that apple Hello commercial when they dropped the iPhone back in like, you know, the Oscars and it was like hello, hello. Hello. All the different like movie clips and TV clips and people answering telephones. Remember that?
How did they do? Does a person just have to go through hours and hours of footage? How do they do
this? So they did and then I made a spoof because I had made a couple previous Apple spoofs that played at lots of festivals. So I made one. And it was people answering. So they were people picking up the phone saying hello. Yeah. So mine was making fun of that. And I grabbed movie clips, TV clips of people answering the phone and not knowing who's calling them or, or who they're calling, and it was called the iPhone shuffle. Watch it because back in the day, that was the shuffle the iPod Shuffle. That's right. So that video that I put out there, it's on YouTube, it got 100,000 views right away. So to me that was viral back in the day. Yeah. So like, oh seven, I believe. Anyway, this reminds me of that. And then it was hinting at what's coming today. Because that was yesterday. Yes. And today, it would have been tomorrow yesterday. There's a twist of Wow. So then people were like speculating. Is this show dropping early? You know,
I'm glad I mean, I want the show but I'm not ready. I'm not ready. A little bit more time a little
bit more any more summer. We need more summer? How
about that? Because we're gonna be in the studio once the show drops. I was gonna tell I don't want to miss the beach yet.
Now. So it was not to be I had a feeling it was the trailer. And that's what it was but different than our previous breakdowns of trailers. I myself, Jason Connell, and you yourself. Salvador Rodriguez, sometimes called Guillermo Rodriguez have not watched this trailer yet. No, we have not.
No. And that's real. This is full transparency. On our show. We don't be asked our listeners. We have not seen the trailer. I have not seen the trailer I will attest. Here's my right hand like I'm in court. Well, since getting back
from Los Angeles, three weeks on the road so much to catch up on for all the different shows social media. It's like you know what, let's do something we haven't done. We tried it last week with the first look photos, or try it, it's different. You just click through and look at photos for the first time. Well, we're gonna do the same here. We're gonna watch it in real time real reactions and then talk about it. However, our listeners and viewers won't see it or probably hear it but they can hear us commentating on it in real time, and then discussing it and I'm sure so we're gonna watch it a million times before the season drops, but I'll be
watching it in my car at stoplights. Totally. I just want to let our listeners know too if you want to watch along with us react along with Jason I have to do a countdown because you remember Jason and I are no longer in the same studio. We got to do a countdown we got to hit start at the same time. So everybody listening hit start at the same time and we can all watch the season five trailer together.
It's gonna get foiled because we're both gonna hit start and I'll have a commercial and not to call an audible reset.

So this dropped today on the Netflix YouTube channel now Sal they have 24 point 3 million subscribers so they're doing quite well there it wasn't on to DME or maybe it was on to DME as well as I go to do to dome, and this is how it's described. I didn't watch it. I just saw the text wrote it down and clicked on the link for us to save copy the link. It says the battle for the soul the valley may be over but the war is just beginning. Cobra Kai Season Five premieres Wednesday,
September 9, that is Friday. date September 9,
only on Netflix.
Nice. This trailer has almost a million views.
Oh, yeah, exactly. So what we're going to do is we'll do a lethal weapon countdown. And what I mean by that is, you know what I mean? You don't go
with this or you Danny Glover or Mike,
or you Murtaugh or No, no, no, describe what a lethal weapon countdown is.
Well, at this point, it's like urban folklore. You know, it's, what is it? It's part of the cultural lexicon 123 to go on three, do we go on and go, it was 123 or 123. Go and then go on go. Or yes, the way that I do it personally, is whatever I do, I go on three. Oh, that's how I usually do. That's how I That's how Sal Rodriguez does.
And that's how we do a countdown actually before every episode to get our audio in sync. But we're gonna go different today, we're gonna go 123 And then everyone at home and they want to listen and want to join us on go click the link, play on go so well. 123 kind of a reset, and then go Got it. This is once for fun. God if we love it, we might we might do it again. And everybody
makes sure you're on the same trailer that is titled Cobra Kai Season Five official trailer on the Netflix YouTube channel because you know people still videos and put them all over the place and totally make sure you are on the exact right trailer.
And so just to make sure on your end as well, you may want to check the volume on that because you're on the player and you know, we're about to hit play. I have it like a little less than half so that way I'm not blaring but you can always adjust it. We're not going to stop it unless we have a glitch.
I'll put it about 80%
Oh, you're going man you're going
hot. Well, you know why? You know why? Because I don't want to what if we do this? We're watching it live along with everybody else and then I'm like, Oh, I got to hear that. What do you say? Well, yeah,
we got to keep going. We just got to keep moving.
I did reduce the sound No, I'm not not 100% on the video it's yes.
Okay, here we go sound alright. 123 go. Oh my gosh. Terry silver Netflix. He's recruiting. Oh, season. Yeah. Yeah.
Who are these new recruits routes?
Yeah, just picking them up. Is that legal? Probably not.
shutting down Miyagi dough.
Johnny god. Oh to Mexico.
Oh my gosh. Oh, he's
Uber driver. Cobra Kai is blowing up.
Wow. private jet.
Look at that, like, moneybags.
Oh, okay. We haven't met everybody
to recruit. She was in the first like photos. Look at that. Looks like let's be a swim Park. Yeah, this is like
it's like a raging water race or some hurricane harbor at magicmount harbor.
Yeah, they're pulling Johnny and Daniel fighting
Mets don't ever stop Whoa.
Delivery so auto she's she looks tough now. Wait, Devin is in Cobra Kai. Oh, he's still on shows it into the arguments with Amanda the three essays at Miyagi dough chosen and Johnny go to Cobra co who's that do is that who Eminem haircut? Very Eminem. Things are hating out. Wait for one big teaser at the end. Oh, crease crease in jail a little kindness goes a long way I
love that we get to see Chris in jail. Of course he's kicking ass of course.
Yeah, we didn't just eliminate Chris was too much to take one more time. Well watch it and do time
that was very exciting. I love the imagery the set design really great. It's pretty sexy. I
think Daniel is having the same conversation with Amanda but this time it's shows it's in the middle it's like I gotta fight Johnny now it's let chosen me to handle this. And Amanda is like over it. I mean, they could be on rocky times if he can't solve this riddle. But he comes out and says he's shutting the dojo down. So where's that in sequence with the season and then
like Johnny now that John is gone? What because Johnny took off to Mexico is to shut the dojo Damn.
I don't know obviously. I don't know shows him looks like he's in lots of episodes, though. I'll say yes.
Yes. He looks like a regular in this season. I like the little clips of Daniel with little stubble like we never Yeah, how hectic is his life right now that he can't even shave. We've never seen Daniel with any stubble at all. Ever.
Now you're right about that. Absolutely. Man. That is a ride. So we talked about this on first look photos. You had mentioned that one girl and the second photo look like Devin and as like, well unless you switch sides. Well, she switched sides. She is in Cobra Kai now Devin was an up and comer.
Devin was the person on the debate team exactly switched. I didn't notice that
was that was her and so we kind of you mentioned it and I was like, Yeah, unless you switch but we weren't sure if we didn't have much Intel. We didn't do research on these things. We wanted to kind of be fresh and newbies to this season. That's her and then who they fly in and who's this like special recruit from far away? You
know what, I'm gonna take a wild guess here. Okay, that girl that came down off the plane, this new recruit. She looks like she's meant to be important and kick ass. Yes. I bet you she's from Okinawa. They recruited somebody from Okinawa.
She knows Miyagi. Yes, that's my best to call her name on the show. It's Kim and her last name is da hyphen, E U N. De and her the actresses name is Alicia. Hannah Kim. So you're right. They brought her and probably from Okinawa great call. But if not, they're somewhere somewhere special on the Terry silver private jet. She doesn't look like she could fight in all Valley. She looks older than that. Right? But they're gonna help students a whole other, you know, sector of karate that they don't know. That's a great call. So I think you're spot on with that. Cam is going to have a big role this season. So who was the Eminem? Erica? Wasn't Barnes. Maybe it's another newbie. We don't know.
Well, let me ask you this. Then. Jason. What do you think of the fact that Mike Barnes? I mean, look, it's the secret's out. We've seen the headlines. Yeah. Forget about our show for a second. The headlines have been all saying about Mike Barnes. But he Mike Barnes was not in the trailer, though.
Yeah, unless that was him most likely wasn't. So they're holding back what side he's on. We don't know.
If they showed too much of Mike Barnes, we will immediately guess which side he's on. And here's the question. So
it took a long time to get to a new all Valley, we haven't had that many all valleys. Historic. Right? There hasn't been they can't do them every season. So I'm assuming we're not going to get an all Valley this season because it would take a full calendar year. Right. So they're all just prepping and try to battle for spots in the valley dojos. Because there's no way they're going to climax to another all Valley. So
that means that it's not even about the valley right now. It's just basically exactly.
It's like turf. It's turf war. And it's very different. And there's gonna be a lot of fighting and maybe have some politics at play there on the LORUSSO Auto Map, mapping their strategy. So they could do a dojo wherever there's a Russo Otto, it can be like a hybrid.
I love seeing maps of the valley because I am always looking at maps of the valley because I live in the valley. Yeah. So I'm always looking at Google Maps. So to see it right there in the show.
Yeah, it was very, very cool. Well, I am ready to watch it again. That's really exciting. I mean, this is like raising the stakes. Even more. I mean, Where can this season go? The aftermath is upon us. And the pieces lay where they be? Where does it leave season six? I mean, build into another all Valley and then this is the end of the show? I don't know.
Yeah. Why don't all lead. I really love seeing crease in jail. Not that I love to see increase in jail, but to see him his activities in jail, and I'm guessing where is he? You know, because a lot of people may not know this, but before you go to prison, you got to spend time in the local jail. Right? So before they ship you to prison, so I'm assuming crease right now. It's probably only about 810 miles from me right now is downtown men's Central Jail. Yeah. So Chris, I think is in the show right over there right now.
And he hasn't lost his spirit. You know, the way he carries himself. He's not broken. He's not broken in jail just sitting there. Well, he
was a POW what's LA County Jail gonna do to him? Nothing. What can they do to him?
He's gonna be running that place before he leaves so I love flash shots. I really did. Yeah, I almost got to want to peek at something because we just mowed right through it. But and I love that Johnny's picking up recruits using Uber driving he's getting so much mileage out of that van that he took, I guess he stole it or he just cap it you know he he removed it from the arsenal of Lewis Auto Group. Basically
let him do it.
He's like, You know what, just just is it easy stealing if the owner lets you he drives
it like a madman. It's like when someone gets a lease and then when they handle lease back in it's like, what the hell this car is like completely trashed will never buy lease never ever ever
buy a lease or for sure rental never buy a rental
well lease has become rental cars. A lot of times
it goes from new to lease to rental to private party ownership.
I would hope they do. And it rental. Yeah,
I've seen the way but by the way, just to be clear, I treat rentals. Well. I do too. I wouldn't never treat someone else's car like crap I can't do it's not in me. I can take care of things.
We rented a great car and our three weeks in LA you're gonna be driving a lot and I treat it like it was my own. I absolutely did. So looks like you know, you got Miguel and Robbie. Robbie fighting, though they fought and the date announcement they showed that that scene it receded apartments which it looks like when Robbie runs up the wall he does that scene or that season five. They show that for season five but that like sneak peek at the date announcement video that came out months ago, we saw that we saw that they were going to fight
Yeah, I don't like seeing them fight. No, we don't like to see it or not like so
what was the name of the hurricane but you say the hurricane harbor
while there's Magic Mountain in Valencia over here north they have a hurricane harbor. Then they also have something Oh Soak City at Knott's Berry Farm. And then I grew up going to a place in San Dimas called raging waters, which I think might still be there. So they're at one of those places, I
think. Yeah, there was a place in my hometown, Tulsa, Oklahoma, it was called Big splash. And my cousin and I and all of our friends would go there like the parents have just dropped us off in the morning. Yep, come back in the evening. We had a day pass and it was the best Yeah, I
used to like water. But you know what, I would not be against going to a waterpark today. As a grownup I would not be against it. But I'd want to go early in the season. You know what I mean? Early in the season. Yeah, exactly. Well, the waters a little cleaner.
So I mean, that's a lot to take in. It was a fun, fun ride. I cannot wait to delve in further. A lot of fun stuff in store. I think this show is going to come out on time. I don't think they're going to pull any faster. I think that was back then at the time because it was still new to Netflix, you know, and they just kind of re released season one and season two, and then they kind of stuck three in on us. But they also made it a weird date. Initially, it wasn't like January 8 or ninth. Yeah. And I dropped it early. I got in the first. So now I think it's set where it is September 9 Friday, as you said, which means it comes out like Thursday midnight at midnight, and you can be binging right away.
You could do like a New Year's Eve Countdown. Yeah, for season five on Netflix itself, you know, 11 5950 seconds to a countdown and to lick
draw. And there'll be people that do it. And then we have to watch it and do notes and yadda yadda yadda.
But we'll always watch the first time just for joy. First times for pleasure. Not Friday, you to the whole season first for pleasure. Absolutely. And then you'll go through and again. Yeah, that
weekend, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, I will knock it out recover. I also have the NFL dropping that week. So Thursday night will be busy Sunday Monday, and then I'll get into my notes but very excited to watch it again as soon as we get off. And yeah, man we are moving forward sow we're closer than ever before to season five.
We are I'm ready man. I'm ready. Every time we see something like this, it just gives me more, more jazzed up and ready to go. I know
