Re: second season they should have michael use a

I can see a watch being used as a back up option though. In much the same manner as a Bluetooth-enabled phone reverts back to normal mode when the earpiece is out of range or otherwise disabled, the "backup" functionality of a Comlink would be similar with the Earwick device. Perhaps with...

Re: Things does not make sense...

One would assume that the seat would just change under them just like an electric seat in a car moves when you push the button. Now the REAL interesting question is what happens to the people in the BACK seat when Kitt goes to attack mode? Do they suddenly become assimilated into the collective of ...

Re: Live Discussion - Fight Knight

I liked tonights episode. It was it was old school Knight Rider style, crooked sheriff, helping a friend, and some cool fight action. Didn't care for the transformation, but I can live with it. I'm also glad that they're finally giving this car some character:) I'm definitly looking forward to next...

Re: Sarah Graiman: Some thoughts about her character

Being a secure male who isn't persuaded by what society says I should be attracted to, I can't help by eye roll whenever a girl like Sarah beats up 3 guys. All my exes and my current gf can't do completed tasks without making it a dramatic production and/or crying about it. 10 page papers used to s...

Re: Sarah Graiman: Some thoughts about her character

Regarding the Mike/Sarah dynamic, perhaps the show could achieve "the best of both worlds" by making it an on-again/off-again romance while downplaying the "angst" element as much as possible. Overall, I like Sarah's character, although some of the aspects from the pilot should r...

Re: Make Your Very Own AI Car~!

Expanding on the KATIE configuration, some might not be aware that a standard tri-color LED consists of a red and green element with a shared lens. Activating one or the other produces red or green, while activating both produces yellow. Aside from the Standard Mode personality, the AI would affect ...

Re: Make Your Very Own AI Car~!

Mine would be called Knight Adaptive Technology Interface Extension or KATIE. The base vehicle would be a 1971 Chevy Malibu with 350 V8 engine and retrofitted with T-Tops and the 1972 grille version (the '71 grille is virtually impossible to find as a replacement part, and its single chrome crossbar...

Re: What NBC was thinking when making Knight Rider

Re: Should Mike get a bit more of a sense of humor?

Good point! The story I heard was that the premise of TOS evolved from a Producers' joke about adventure-hero characters ... "The Man Of Six Words" ... that was being told around Hollywood at the time when Glen A. Larson was looking for a new show idea. Larson reportedly quipped that KR wa...

Re: If Attack Mode was called Pursuit Mode...

Both Attack Mode in KR08 and Super Pursuit Mode in S4 of TOS were too much of a stretch of the laws of physics. Subtle changes such as to improve traction in off-road driving or increase aerodynamic efficiency by reducing air drag would be far more convincing than a gigantic intake rising out of the...

Re: The Knight Rider 2008 Positive Feedback Thread

To voice partial disagreement with some who complained about "too much T&A" in other threads, Deanna Russo and Smith Cho are both much too HOT to not be shown scantily-clad occasionally. Besides that, there was plenty of (implied at the very least) sex in TOS more than 25 years ago. Mi...

To expand on my prior comments regarding a need for less screen time for Charles, Sarah, Zoey, and Billy to allow more screen time for Mike and KI3T in MOST episodes, a very good compromise to avoid making the actors feel that the roles they play are too restricted or downplayed would be to feature ...

Yeah, but still. Would you expect the special police force to allow a civilian so close to the bank (especially after it was revealed that the bank was rigged with explosives), without at least question why he's there? It's not anything that ruined the episode for me, it just struck as kind of odd....

Re: Live Discussion - Exit Light, Enter Knight

The last 4 episodes had only a transformation into Attack Mode, and even that in only one episode. This show has been SO MUCH better without all the transformations. I hope they keep it that way. Agreed. Believable transformations done in moderation are good. Attack Mode is a little too radical a c...

Computer genius that Charles Graiman is/was, it would be an awfully hard sell for me to believe that he would have been so foolish as to "make the same mistake twice" as to KARR-E being created by him as a new entity in the 21st century after already having discovered the error that made K...

About the cast, first I'll repeat that I'm not among those who wanted to see Sarah, Billy, Zoey (or even Chales or Alex for that matter) killed off or written out by some other means. Having said that, somewhat less screen time for them to make room for more of Mike and KI3T would be a good thing. C...

Re: Live Discussion - Exit Light, Enter Knight

The "invisible car" idea worked well in a James Bond film relatively recently, using the same idea of painted-on cameras/screens displaying "picture on the car of what you'd see if the car wasn't there" to produce a high-tech version of smoke-and-mirrors. If they were going that...

Loved the Auto Cruise scenes, too! The tinted windows worked in that sequence, so I totally disagree with those who reacted negatively to the tinted glass.

Thoroughly enjoying the new show! Not only is it a continuation of TOS with MK Sr's son in KI3T's driver's seat, but it's clearly the best action/adventure series since TOS. Not only is it the ONLY current-production NBC show worthy of weekly "MUST WATCH" status for me, it's the only curre...

Re: KARR...Back from the Bridge CPU, or New Creation?

Along with a more-complete link between Knight Rider Jr. and TOS mythology, there are other aspects of KI3T and KARR-E which should be incorporated as continuations from TOS. I agree that the Nanoskin technology alone leaves KI3T entirely too vulnerable when deprived of full AI functionality for wha...
