Re: Live Discussion Thread: A Hard Day's Knight

One of the things I find equally interesting is when Walton Ash poisoned Michael, he stated that he was not a man to leave loose ends. He also made a point of having a sense of trust. In light of these facts, it makes sense that he had every intention of giving Michael the antidote. A corpse would'v...

Re: Episode 12: 'Knight to King's Rook' Spoilers

Why would GM have a problem using a Trans-Am when they haven't been made (especially KITT's model year) in 5-10 years or so. I can't see why they'd object to a discontinued early '80's model car. Discontinued or not, Ford would be 'beating' GM when KITT defeated KARR. Then there's also the fact tha...

Re: Live Discussion Thread: A Hard Day's Knight

I wonder if Part of the reason Kitt seems impersonal at the moment has anything to do with Val Kilmar's inexperience with voice work? Knowing what I do of him...he's making the voice that way on purpose. He does extensive research into the roles he is going to play well before he takes them on. I'v...

Re: Live Discussion Thread: A Hard Day's Knight

One thing I am finding that no one else has mentioned however, is the development of KITT's personality. I felt in this episode that he's opening up more, starting to develop his colloquial vocabulary. He was a little impersonal with Michael saying "in 2 mins you will be dead", but he's t...

Re: Episode 12: 'Knight to King's Rook' Spoilers

If the Hoff can use Kitt in his low budget music videos, I see no reason why the Knight Rider crew can't. Heh! I can just see the tsunami of letters and call-ins that would be generated if Mr. Hoffman said that GM would not allow him to use 'KITT' in his videos. The "Knight Rider" crew, o...

Re: Live Discussion Thread: A Hard Day's Knight

I honestly feel this episode would have fared better had it been towards the end of the season or even series. There'd be a lot more emotion. Viewers would actually care that MK was going to die. Doing it right at the beginning and you know JB's going to live, just not how. That is an excellent poi...

Re: Live Discussion Thread: A Hard Day's Knight

However, lambo doors are also useful if you're in a spot where opening your doors wide is not an option and you need to get into the car (such as tight parking spots). Another possibility is that, given the high speeds KI3T can attain in "attack mode", trying to open the door to the side ...

Any recommendations?

Re: Episode 12: 'Knight to King's Rook' Spoilers

Hey, has everyone forgot about the new series pilot already?? Hello, bad guys now have KITT's schematics. If I recall correctly, they interrupted the outgoing data stream. So, at best, only a portion of KITT's schematics were transmitted. And Sarah changed all the access parameters, so it's unlikel...

Then there's the aspect of KARR / KITT (original) being non-Ford vehicles. Would Ford allow a Pontiac to show up and save the day? And, in the two-hour thingie....didn't we see KITT's CPU laying on the workbench in the beginning? Who would've been heartless enough to 'kill' him? One of my biggest wo...

Re: Which transformation style do you prefer?

I felt inclined to vote for a mixture of both. I thought that the nanoshift in the pilot felt more 'nano-y'. The series looks like entire body panels are rearranging (which they are), but it's blocky-er. One of the only aspects I do not like about the mechanical shift....is that opening up KITT's st...

Re: "lambo doors as of ep 3"

I suspect the reason for the lack of a wide shot in that scene is that they would have to further modify the "Attack Mode" Mustang far more than simply sticking some blue LEDs on the doors. It would take an overhaul of the hinging and framework, I would think. I am relatively certain they ...

Re: Billy calls it the "KITT Cave"

I think maybe that's a slip of tongue that the producers overlooked and was not in the actual script. In a conversation with Sarah later during the episode, he again said SSC, not KITT Cave. Producers or not, having worked on a show or two myself, continuity being one of the things I did.....that w...

Re: Making the show a real Knight Rider show.

It would make sense that KITT probably has a small reserve pool of nanites just in case he needs them for repairs. A glop of them the size of a basketball could probably repair an entire body panel. That could also help to explain the apparent increase in mass when transforming to a truck. Now, that...

An extremely cool vapor which causes road grime and debris to firm up to the point that the nanotech skin can 'convulse' or ripple underneath it and pop it off.
