Couch Potato Theater: The Karate Kid (1984)

Welcome to Couch Potato Theater here on the Fandom Podcast Network. On Couch Potato Theater we celebrate our favorite movies! You may own your favorite movies digitally or on physical media. However when they air on your cable TV, you love what you are watching so much, you don't get off the couch! And that's the definition of what Couch Potato Theater is all about. 

With the popularity of the first two seasons of Cobra Kai moving to Netflix, we wanted to pay tribute to the original source material that has made this show so popular among fans. Join us on the Couch as we look back and celebrate one of the most popular 80's teen family drama films of all time, The Karate Kid (1984)! This movie has a high re-watchability and represents everything that Couch Potato Theater is all about.

The Karate Kid is a 1984 American martial arts drama film written by Robert Mark Kamen and directed by John G. Avildsen. It is the first installment in The Karate Kid franchise, and stars Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita, and Elisabeth Shue. The Karate Kid follows Daniel LaRusso (Macchio), a teenager taught Gōjū-ryū karate by Mr. Miyagi (Morita) to help defend himself and compete in a tournament against his bullies.
