I like how they sometimes showed things from Johnny’s perspective that Daniel was being an asshole.I like that they can step outside of the standard BS that TV shows are always locked in to. Johnny can give an underage Miguel a beer at the Dee Snyder concert and it doesn't automatically turn in to some morality play about drinking. It's just a little narrative detail that fits his character. Everyone is morally ambiguous, like real people. The "good" people screw up now and then, and the "bad" people rise up from time to time. It rises above schlock on that basis alone.
I hate to say it this way but, I like the show because it has a lot of heart. The Johnny Lawrence character is definitely my favorite. I’ve met guys like him in the martial arts and find him at times hilarious, and then feel for him as he struggles to make something of himself.
