Likes: Johnny Lawrence
Hates: Stingray

Definitely agree.

Johnny has been the best overall in all seasons.

Stingray the worst that should have been left out or another actor instead.

reply

Co-Signed.

Without Johnny the show would be a lifeless shell of itself and Stingray was a terrible idea that dragged down Season 2. I'd love to see what a Stingray-less S2 would look like but it's too late for that now.

reply

A Stingray-less season two would only be about 10 minutes shorter.

reply

Sometimes 10 minutes counts for a lot.

Like: Miguel (although Chozen was close for this)
Hate: Stingray

reply

Wow everyone hates stingray. I think he was good comic relief at times but i see why people hate him.

reply

I don't think he was a good comic relief plus a much older fatter bloke in with the kids was not funny at all but way too cringey, maybe another actor could have done it better but he was too bad.

reply

fair point.

Well Paul Walter Hauser is an excellent actor, he didn't play the character wrong, it was just a bad character.

No way would high school kids hang out with an overweight or normal weight 35 year old loser, doesn't matter how down he tries to be.

I don't care if the character of Stingray was played by Leonardo DiCaprio, character was way too cringey.

reply

The material was bad no doubt about it but even so it could have been less cringey with the delivery.

I can't say if Paul Walter Hauser is or isn't a good actor as not seen any of his work, but even so it his doesn't matter if he is an excellent actor, 2 actors can produce 2 different results from the same material.

Even if an actor has an oscar from one movie doesn't mean he would be great in all the rest of the movies he does.

Think of this - if Ralph Macchio was Johnny and William Zabka was Larusso, would the outcome of the films/series even look and feel the same? or if you replaced Pat Morita's character with Jet Li or Sammo Hung.

Fav easily The school counselor
least favorite easily Daniel

reply

Kreese is my favorite. He just steals the show every time he's on screen

Robbie is least favorite. He's a dick to his father who is obviously trying to restore the relationship, and to Daniel who has been very good to him. He actually tried to fight Miguel again before Sam got in the way. He almost kills the poor bastard and then acts like a total dickhead.

reply

I agree that the writers would serve the character better if they would make him a little more sympathetic. But he's pretty much a dick all the time.

The fact that he doesn't feel at least a little bad about nearly putting Miguel in a wheelchair for life is not a good look and robs the character of his humanity.

reply

Least they gave Robbie a haircut, the long hair so did not suit him.

Favorite : Johnny
Least Favorite: Stingray

Like: Johnny, Miguel, Miguel's abuela

Hate: Kreese, Tory, Robby

Favorite most certainly goes to “Bad Sensei” John Kreese!

The character that irritates me the most is the fat white kid in the dojo lol. Assface or whatever.

No love for homeless meth head woman?
