And really only the 1st is important, for the background of Daniel/Johnny. There are references to 2 and 3 as well. But I also feel like someone who has never seen the movies could still watch and get what is going on.
I absolutely love this show, its my new obsession. I think the show leans into the 80s chessiness by design. Yes there’s some breakout performances among the younger cast, but there are more than a few cringe worthy moments as well, which Imo is part of the show’s charm. It looks like the bad guy from KK2 will be in season 3 which reminded of this hilarious role he had in the 80s John Cusack classic Better of Dead https://youtu.be/qao4nkmR7Qs
Yes ! Love this show . Binged the first season back when it first came out on youtube premium . I think season 2 is even better than season 1 , especially that fight in the last episode. Stingray adds big laughs to the show too
