Re: The Hoff confirms KR is coming back to TV soon!

Last I heard, the Weinstein company owns the film rights. They got the rights in 2006 and Glen Larson was writing a movie script for them. I don't remember the details, but there was some kind of animosity between the Larson film project and the new series. I always considered the 2008 movie to be t...

Re: The actual trans ams used for filming knight rider TOS

Here is another picture of the KITT's being crushed.

The 2 pictures show at least 4 KITTs were crushed. 2 Super Pursuit cars and 2 stunt cars.

Re: The actual trans ams used for filming knight rider TOS

I thought it was common knowledge that 5 original KITTs survived. The hero car for season 1/2, the hero car for season 3/4, the convertible, and a couple of stunt cars. There was a get together a few months ago that brought 3 of the cars together. I think the convertible is in a Florida museum. I ha...

Re: Knight Rider broadcast restoration

The collector's edition vhs/dvds from Columbia House have the different season 2 openings. The only difference I noticed was one scene that lasted maybe a second. Its the second scene after Rebecca's credit. You might find these dvds on ebay or I could send you the clip. What music was missing from ...

Re: Knight Rider on Blu Ray Review Thread

kngtmat is correct. I was really hoping this set would be what we all wanted, but I can't be mad at Mill Creek because they have to work with what they are given. The email was correct that they didn't have the original masters. All they had was these remastered versions supplied by Universal. Knigh...

Re: More Music Changes On The DVDs

John Mellencamp must have wanted too much money. I believe "Hurts So Good" was only on the original release of season 1 from 2004. No other DVD release of season 1 has had that song and now "Crumblin' Down" has disappeared from the latest DVD set.

More Music Changes On The DVDs

I popped in a random disc from season 2 of the latest DVD release from Mill Creek. I chose to watch White Line Warriors and I could not believe my ears. They have removed the song "Crumblin' Down". We still hear a few seconds of it during the actual robbery scene, but that's it. Now this i...

Re: Knight Rider on Blu Ray Review Thread

If Knight of the Drones is the only 2 hour episode in two parts, it was most likely done to avoid the Prince song because that scene is usually cut out of the two part syndicated version. Don't know why they wouldn't just use the silent version from the dvd but I have seen this situation before. Cur...

Re: Knight Rider on Blu Ray Review Thread

Does Knight of the Drones have the correct intro that hides KITT's new dash? 4. Are any episodes missing their tea...

Re: Knight Rider coming to Blu Ray!

It's mostly Prince songs that are missing. Three episodes are affected. It will be interesting to see if Prince's estate will make a deal, if Universal or Mill Creek are even trying.

Knight Rider was recorded on 35mm film so it has more than enough resolution for an HD release.

Re: Knight Rider coming to Blu Ray!

I think we should email Mill Creek about the music issues and find out if they will be fixed. This is our last chance to get a release with the music intact. Their season 1 and 2 dvd release each had music replacement which doesn't give me much hope for the Blu-ray. We've already talked about White ...

Jeremy are you sure the Google play transfers are from Mill Creek? Mill Creek doesn't have a HD release yet for Knight Rider. It appears they have only just released season 1 and 2 on DVD.

The song is intact on the Columbia House tape and dvd if you can find them. It was also on Netflix when...

Re: Mill Creek Releases

The Mill Creek releases are new transfers of the episodes. They are the HD transfers that were on Netflix, but being on dvd, they are not in HD. Should of put them on Blu-ray like their Airwolf release. When compared to the dvd releases, you will notice a color difference and slight framing differen...

I've bought one episode from Google Play (White Line Warriors) to see if it had the Prince song intact. It didn't. You can buy SD episodes for $1.99 or HD versions for $2.99. Either way, they are the HD transfers that were just released on dvd from Mill Creek a month ago. One thing to note though is...

Re: New NBC promo for classic KR for Valentine's Day

The video only uses clips from season 1 because it is an ad to watch Knight Rider on nbc.com which only has the first season available. I agree about the later shift in tone. The first season had a different producer and very much feels like other shows from the late 70s and early 80s. Seasons 3 and...
