Re: why wasn't KR08 successful?

I don't buy NBC's 'motivation' here. They would not pour 50 million into a project to keep a movie from happening. I think they took a shot, as they do with all new projects, did their best, and it didn't work out. Sometimes the simplest explanation is the right one. I hear ya Shapeshifter. But let...

Re: why wasn't KR08 successful?

GST was to blame, simple as that. Under the guidance of Dave Andron, Dave Bartis and Doug Liman they could've built in the film, but GST took it down the wrong route, down the TKR/Fast & The Furious route. NBC DID try to save it. They were the ones who wanted it to be more like the original. GST...

My sentiments exactly Shapeshifter, thanks for being so much more eloquent than me And I don't understand the hate either. That's a helluva lot of money and yes they've cancelled the show, but they were also the ones who brought it back in the first place. They're the ones who were constantly on GST...

Re: Knight Rider 2008 DVD is here

That's not what I'm talking about, you think this is about not giving money to the NBC bigwigs, who are actually the ones on huge salaries and DON'T take a cut from DVD sales etc. No, the producers, writers, actors (like Justin and Paul) will be taking cuts, as will the "smaller people" an...

Re: GT 500 problem

You're right, it's not something we should be arguing over My only point I wished to stress is that while 'Top Gear' is an entertainment show, it's factual data is always correct. Believe me, I work in BBC Information and we've been in touch with the producers on several occasions when manufacturers...

Re: Knight Rider 2008 DVD is here

Anyone who condones piracy is a sad and pathetic thief! I'm usually not one to say such things on the internet, but I also don't like to mince my words when it comes to a topic I care about. No one in the world has the right to pirate the material that belongs to someone else, no matter WHO they are...

Re: GT 500 problem

I'm not going to get involved in an argument here, but to say that 'Top Gear' is only an entertainment show and so somehow that means its findings should be seen as "entertainment" and not fact isn't on! Fact of the matter is, the GT500 Mustang is nowhere near as powerful as Ford make out....

Re: GT 500 problem

Yes, and somehow I think 'Top Gear' know what they're doing. Solid Snake you're trying to say they measured it wrong, well I'm sorry but they didn't. Brake Horse Power is measured this way, simple as that. This is a professional motoring show, using professional equipment used by professional engine...

Re: GT 500 problem

I did clearly state that they were trying out the GT500 and not the GT500KR, my point was that Ford stated its horsepower but this was a gross over-estimate. 'Top Gear''s equipment is professional, hired for this particualr purpose and measures accurately the horse power, taking into account the met...

Re: GT 500 problem

I know the GT500 was used in the pilot, (and the Knight Rider stunt crews and production crews also increased the horse power beyond even what the GT500KR can do) I was just clearing up some things because 'Top Gear' was being misrepresented, and I work for the BBC. In addition, I find it strange th...

Re: GT 500 problem

'Top Gear' went further than this small clip shows. The GT500 has horrible, horrible suspension. For a car that's supposed to have so much power they really shot themselves in the foot by making it so uncontrollable when going at such high speeds. However, 'Top Gear' did quite clearly state on the s...

Re: Most popular TV show on Sci Fi UK

Yes it's skyrocketing because people on here are voting multiple times. I have no doubt that KR would still be way out in front but the numbers themselves are false and not a true indication.

That's your own opinion, but I loved the pilot and many here did also. It's much easier to remember the bad comments than the positive ones, and as for the "reviews" of the pilot, when it aired here in the UK it was generally very positive but with scathing remarks for the regular series. ...

Baywatch Nights. Can I just add that those figures for KR08 on SciFi UK are nothing short of spectacular! Take away the five network channels (BBC One, BBC TWO, ITV1, Channel 4 and Five) and you've got hundreds of digital channels competing against each other. KR's pilot episode got 500,000 and made...

I'd hardly say the Sky Magazine is "going mad" for the two-parter. They put a small picture of KITT in a couple of places in the mag, one of these being the schedule and the other in a round up of what's happening on various channels, they do this with every new show, regardless the networ...

Re: I have news about a POSSIBLE season 2!

While I'd love for this to be true, there's no interactive part of the SciFi channel here in the UK, no Red Button or additional services, just the channel and its website. Thing is, around this time the channel released information that they've acquired the rights to the second season of 'Dollshous...
