Episode 4 - The Karate Kid

Take a deep breath. Remember, don't forget to breathe. Always breathe! Yes, this week we are snuffing out the 1984 film, "The Karate Kid." Not any of the sequels, but the first one. The original. And when we’re done with it, it’ll be extra crispy. 

We break down this movie’s insane plot, over-the-top villains, and cheesy romantic relationship. Or relationships? Hmm. And we have so many questions, like why does Mr. Miyagi have so many cars if he doesn’t know how to drive, what’s with his magical ability to cure all injuries on the spot, and why do movies in the mid-'80s always have teenage boys hanging out with creepy, loner old men while nobody said anything about it?
