Cobra Kai: Seasons 1 & 2 (Netflix, Friday) — Season 3 of this crowd-pleasing arrival will arrive in 2021, but you can catch up to your heart’s content because Ralph Macchio promised us that “[t]he best is yet to come” for this series. Macchio’s Daniel LaRusso faces off again with William Zabka’s Johnny Lawrence and both of their respective dojo members, and the show’s still got the same energy as the original movies. May the franchise live on as long as possible.
Ravi Patel’s Pursuit of Happiness: (HBO Max, Thursday) The star of 2014’s Meet the Patel is back to mull over deep conversations in a four-part season.
