The Sister's florist shop is at 901 E. Wingate St, Covina CA -- still a florist's shop!

Re: 2.11 - Silent Knight

Found the Covina theatre this episode.
104 North Citrus Ave, Covina California.

Sadly the original structure was torn down in 2015, but the marquee is there.

About 1/2 block to the left, "The Book Shop" is still there!

Re: Knight Rider: The Laserdisc!

I will try to get to this today. The issue is that an LD cover is 12x12. My scanner can only do 8 1/2 x 14? I'll try grab just the art in the middle, so that I'm not trying to stitch an image together.

Re: What Glen Larson thought of TKR and KR08

I just watched a bunch of those 3 minute clips from Glen. A. Larson. Those were fun, thanks!

In a sense though he's right, the theme of the show is basically "The Lone Ranger in a Car" -- deviating from that formula is clearly fraught, as is evidenced by the subsequent series.

Re: Rank the Seasons

A mostly agree with David above. Season 2 is solid. Season 3 vs Season 1 are really close for 2nd place for me. I'd need to go back and do a thorough review of episodes before determining a "winner". Season 4 is clearly the overall weakest, though I remember as a kid I totally ate up that ...

Re: Siri with kitt's voice

We need someone to have William Daniels to a phoenitc alphabet recording. Paramount did the same for Majel Barret before she passed. With a phonetic alphabet, you can use software to assemble a life-like voice. At that point, the sky is the limit for what you'd want KITT to say back to you.

Re: Knight Rider Online on Discord

Yeah, probably the same reason why only snafu and yourself (briefly) have been in the ##KnightRider IRC channel -- there just isn't enough traffic through here to support a large real-time chat.

Re: hi again

Hey snfau, I saw someone (I'm guessing it was you) pop in to the room and say hello. I'm guessing it worked! The problem with a chat room, is that without some critical mass of people hanging out in there...it tends to be lame.

I will say that one of the nice things about freenode is that it's really old-school anonymous. Choose a username, choose a password., Done. No real names, age verification, name of your 2nd cousin once removed, etc. I don't even have logging turned on for ##KnightRider channel, so the conversations...

Re: hi again

An IRC client, is a thing on your machine you can use to connect to an Internet Relay Chat server. The most user friendly clients, like Adium X for the Mac and Pidgin for Windows/Linux can connect to multiple server through various protocols. My pidgin client currently connects to: my AIM account (r...

Re: hi again

So, I've seen a few laments about the loss of the chat.

I've just created a ##KnightRider channel over on Freenode.

Hook your favourite IRC client up to chat.freenode.net (I use Pidgin) and /join ##KnightRider

Junk Shop Score

My mom is in town visiting, so I took her down to Pikes Place Market today for some shopping / tourist stuff today. As she was in whatever shops, I was wondering around. At the end of the hall, on one of the lower levels of the market, was what I can only describe as an old school junk shop. All sor...

Re: KITT and Turboboost

I think KITT's risk assessment sub routines were probably tuned a little on the conservative side in order to protect Michael, which after all was his primary program.
