Re: Knight Rider on Laserdisc

Re: Knight Rider 2000 remastered (BluRay)

WOW! congrats on the score! this is a VERY cool project! i'm afraid i have to side with neps, though... as cinematographer, the stretched image made me wince. i think it's great you're also making the 4:3 HD version available. i breezed through the thread pretty quick, so sorry if this has been aske...

Re: wow, official news

i'm ALL for a quality, big-budget KR movie to help remove the taste of the terrible NBC show... but c'mon... a larson BSG movie? ignoring and rebooting one of the best written sci-fi shows in recent memory? eick and moore hit it out of the park. let it be.

so say we all.

Re: About turbo boost in new episode

Hey everyone, This is Krenigma from the Knight Rider VFX team. Interesting to hear the comments on Turbo Boost. Obviously this first one presented a particular challenge because KITT is parked when he boosts, so we had to think carefully about exactly how he lifts off the ground to make it over the...

Could this be Kilmer as KITT? NBC KR ringtone and voicemail

On the NBC-KR Myspace page, there are links to a KITT incoming call ringtone and voicemail message. Could it be Kilmer? I can't really tell... but it doesn't sound like what I've heard on the promos and TV spot. There's also a VERY high quality version of the original theme. It HAS to be sourced fro...

I should probably put my flame-suit on for saying that lol

You post that KITT should be a sport compact on a KNIGHT RIDER message board... yet you're worried about getting flamed for a remark on F1 racing? Hmmmm... :wink:

I'm glad I'm not the only sane person posting here. Forgive me for saying this... and I'm not bashing you guys... but picking apart torque curves and drag coeffecients in regards to KNIGHT RIDER is about as nerdy as the four door sport compacts themselves... hell, it's nerdy in almost ANY situation,...

Re: New KITT featured at Edmunds

And Belker didn't pay any attention to KITT's design heritage from the old TV series either. "We discussed old episodes of Knight Rider," Belker recalls laughingly. "And fortunately I didn't have to watch any of them."

...and I would say it's obvious. :roll:

Re: KITT car poll PART II

Personally, I just don't see KITT with gullwing doors.... and the Riviera concept looks more suited for a TRON/GOLDEN GIRLS crossover film than KR. SERIOUSLY... what's up with the neon/EL thing? It's awful. The Charger concept pic really brought back some memories... I'm pretty sure that was making ...
