Re: What Glen Larson thought of TKR and KR08

In my KR universe, "Team Knight Rider", "Knight Rider 2000", and "Knight Rider" 2008 never happened.

Re: Michael Long

It's a bizarre line that doesn't add up either way.


I'm surprised in this day and age where every single character needs a prequel back story, we don't have a "Michael Long" prequel series. And please -- NO -- we don't need one.

Re: Funny YouTube clip

I don't speak it either, but I found it amusing. Especially that scene of K.I.T.T. flying over a tall billboard on a pole. That's a lot of effort. People on Youtube in recent years have been doing super amazing videos like this where they take pats of existing footage and insert it into new stuff. T...

Only KR 2010 had nothing to do with Knight Rider. It was a conincidently named thing with vaguely similar aspects.

Re: Team Knight Rider On DVD NOW!!!!!!!

Just when I thought there couldn't be another reason to hate TKR, I found another reason: I had completely forgotten, but the second to last episode, "Spy Girls", is actually a pilot for a spin-off series. Yes, that horrible episode is meant to be a canon KR spin-off episode. I don't even ...

Re: Here's some KR forward thinking that we all overlook.

You know, you got me thinking: Siri can't even get things right all the time from voice commands, yet there was K.I.T.T. who seemed to never misunderstand Michael, unless it was some human concept or idea that K.I.T.T. couldn't know from just accessing memory banks. Well, Americans do need permissio...

Re: Paul feig on directing knight rider the motion picture

The studio wouldn't let him. They want a general bland movie with just enough hints or homages to the original series to once again full the fanbase to go see a crappy revisioning, that's tailored by a dozen producers and Hollywood executives to reach a mass appeal instead of makign a qaulity film. ...

Re: Here's some KR forward thinking that we all overlook.

Artificial intelligence has to start somewhere. I'm sure at some point an early version of K.I.T.T. was rather equal to today's Siri. Now you can buy vehicles with automatic trunks that open and close by themselves, but it was revolutionary in KR. You know, that reminds me: all that talk from Apple ...

Speaking of two-way communication, there's another forward thinking KR example: Michael could communicate with full color and video wirelessly in K.I.T.T. with Devon. People thought it was impressive the Batmobile has a phone in it. Then of course we have a laser mounted on K.I.T.T. in one or two ep...

What's even worse is that they'll force self-driving cars on us.

Cities and/or states will start taxing people for driving non self-driv...
