Re: Netflix is interested in Knight Rider sequel, Marilyn Manson as a villain according to DH

That's a very interesting 'What if' reality, indeed. Really sets the potentials on it's ear.

Re: Knight Rider Inspired Vehicle

In another thread, there is mention of a new tech that is super thin, yet stronger then a bullet proof vest when something strikes it. If something like that could be applied to the skin of this car...then all the pebbles to be found on the road couldn't cause wear and tear.

Re: Netflix is interested in Knight Rider sequel, Marilyn Manson as a villain according to DH

There was one function I would have thought was too farfetched for KR called Molecular Flash where the driver and the car could pass through objects but that would negate the fun purpose of turbo boost which I couldn't live without in KR. Really??? There was serious talk about bringing K.A.M.O.'s p...

Re: Netflix is interested in Knight Rider sequel, Marilyn Manson as a villain according to DH

An interesting idea strikes me. What if a running sub-plot throughout the first season is a modern FLAG making plans on building a brand new, modern KITT while we have the traditional Trans-Am still in service. Now...there would be an active web site running for the fans to put in all their ideas in...

Re: Never Did Like Devin When Series Progressed

I was trying to remember how a quote between Michael and Devon went, right after Michael wasn't appreciative about Wilton's offer. Then the whole 'you just struck at a dying man' drama bit went down. Bet that Devon never did forget or forgive that moment. And probably had a kind of 'This stranger do...

Re: Knight Rider mentioned on Lethal Weapon Series last night

Interesting. Lethal Weapon and Knight Rider are both products of action '80s. Plus, self driving cars don't have a lot of references to draw from. Still nice for some nostalgia references.

I believe you are correct on that memory. I, too, remember the derailment being 'later' and at a most opportune moment for the series.

Been a very long time since I've last re-visited the episodes. But, I can't be sure if KoTP truly had the most jumps or not. Got to remember that the first hour was all about Michael's transition. And Wilton's dream coming true...before he dies. Lots of story plot to go through before KITT is even g...

Re: Knight rider on the PS2 system -users have played that?

I've actually forgotten about how PlayStations used different format discs for different amounts of data storage. Thanks to the DVD reading optics, the PS2 could take advantage of the higher DVD storage medium or the regular CD grade. And now that I am thinking about it, I do seem to recall having a...

Re: What sort of computer is in KITT?

My take on how those games existed inside of KITT was always more of a direct answer. (Especially for the 1980's.) They simply installed the real console hardware under the dash and wired up the RF into Kitt's circuits to be fed into the monitor. It must have been somewhat hard to swap games, though...

That is really amazing. Almost like a mirror.

No wonder the show had a few issues, keeping the cars from reflecting things that should not be seen. (Like camera rigs and crew members.)
