Cobra Kai and Stranger Things are American dramas that focus on the lives of a group of teenagers and their parents. The genres of both series are still quite different from each other; one show is better and has caught the interest of the audience.
Speaking of the two series, Cobra Kai is an action comedy drama series based on the movie The Karate Kid. The first part has been released on YouTube Red (now on Netflix) in 2018 and the second part premiered in 2019.
Netflix took over the series in 2020 and the 3rd part is ready to be released in 2021. Cobra Kai is based on the life of Johnny Lawrence. He is an unemployed man with no purpose in life. However, he gets a clue when he rescues a child from some bullies. He decides to start the Cobra Kai dojo that begins his journey.
Stranger Things is a science fiction horror created by The Duffer Brothers. It aired on Netflix on July 15, 2016. There are 3 seasons of the show with a total of 25 episodes.
The story takes place in a fictional town of Hawkins, where supernatural events take place when a boy suddenly disappears near the government lab. The family and friends search for the boy and reveal the dark secrets of the laboratory. The series is infused with a sense of pop culture.
Why is Cobra Kai better than strange things?
Stranger Things entertained people quite well, but people love Cobra Kai. The essence of the 80s in the series gives viewers a sense of nostalgia.
Stranger Thing is set in the modern era with kids in Ghostbusters costumes for a Halloween episode, and the Cobra Kai shows his teen in vintage clothing for a retro night on the roller coaster. Cobra Kai has given people a premonition of the old era that makes it feel like time travel.
Both shows are nonetheless action dramas to some extent; Cobra Kai has earned brownie points in action. Cobra Kai’s action scenes are commendable and really enjoyed by the audience.
Cobra Kai’s dramatic touches are often more powerful compared to Stranger Things. The stranger things say goodbye with the death of a monster, while the Cobra Kai has strong drama and powerful action sequences that are fun.
