Another Knight Rider notion comes into being.



The self driving cars under the Tesla name get classic Atari games as an interactive Easter Egg. And the ultimate road trip distraction era has begun.

Re: Anyone know what happened to...

It's wonderful to know that someone is keeping a record of all these wonderful works. After all, the nature of the net is both quick to come and go...while retaining things, forever. Come to think of it, I've no idea if my one and only fan fiction is somehow hiding out in some odd nook.

Re: Knight Rider Funko Pop figure coming soon

Had to go to the local post office the other week. Their little prepaid cards section still sold Toys R' Us gift cards. I thought that was lazy on their behalf. Then pondered if the company managed to retain an online presence.

Just checked. Site is running. But, quite abandoned.

Re: Airwolf and Street Hawk, revisited

Reading a little further up the thread, tonight ... Airwolf in it's first x set of seasons is a pretty powerful show. Yes. The tone was darker. But, that's alright. They managed to pull a lot out of a notion of 'rogue pilot steals top secret heli and does missions in exchange of favors for lost fam...

Re: Airwolf and Street Hawk, revisited

Totally agreed. Airwolf shall always remain a true classic and a wonder from the days of TV when they had to milk every penny without having too many shortcuts available to produce some amazing shows. And that show still stands up rather well to this day.

Re: When Will The Hot Wheels Super Elite 1/18 Kitt Be Released?

I can dare to dream of what it might be like to totally build a scale model Kitt. Not sure how small one could go. But, I'd 3D print as much as possible. Throw in a Raspberry Pi (or some other micro chip computer) to run the thing. Drive motors and gears for forward/backward motion. A stepper motor ...

Funny to think how any random person can now own a "S.I.D." (Though, nobody has placed a drone inside a football...or how that would even work.) SID was only about 30 years ahead of it's time. (Just like self driving cars.)

While this may be very possible, I also know that MSKen has been with this idea for a very long time. He's funding it out of his own pocket and available hours.

Re: knight rider slammy sammy episode tv spot error

I believe the answer to that one is rather simple. Making a show of this complexity on a television budget and on a time constraint probably couldn't give them the luxury of reshooting a scene when someone changed wardrobe or when that mysterious hand appeared or when the camera caught something it ...

Michael can change clothes via the same technology that allows Kitt to bank recorded video off of thin air, of course. It's called Smoke 'n *cough, cough...agic* Mode.

That's a very good point. I never replayed the show so many times to ponder all the hidden images being reflected.

It's really quite fun to find all these little odd flaws in the show. I know that editing together a show this complex, must have proved to be a challenge just a little over their heads.

Re: Never Did Like Devon When Series Progressed

Well, I should hope so. After all, 'Michael Knight' doesn't exactly have a day job, per say. At least, the 'ATM' is within arm's reach.

Hard to remember such a momentary detail. But in the pilot, didn't Devon hand Michael a set of personalized cards. Say...driver's license, ID...credit card?

Oh...like this one scene where Michael comments that sleeping in Kitt is better then a good night's motel rest. (Or something like that.) Those really got to be some comfortable seats to earn such praise.

That actually makes a lot of sense. As I certainly expect that by season four, the ratings just weren't justifying the same budget as Season One would have gotten. And, who knows just how much was spent on making that SPM look a reality. They may have also been afraid of wrecking the stunt cars if t...

Seriously. This shell and internal electronics was just so begging to be mildly altered to be a perfect match. The year and theme of creation fits, too.
