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?

Re: Never Did Like Devon When Series Progressed

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.

Re: Episode with the most Turbo Boosts?

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.

Re: Who's excited for READY PLAYER ONE ?

Just came back from the movie, in 3D, no less. So... SPOILER ALERT. Most certainly hits base with a few generations. And I bet that people will be going through the DVD frame-by-frame to see all the little nostalgic references. Though, my overall feeling is that this movie may not age too well. It d...

Re: Knight Rider (The Original Series) in Chronological order

There is a lot of challenge to that, for sure. First and foremost, acquiring the list of air dates will lay down the foundation. But...NBC was known to shuffle around episodes to try and draw in audience numbers. Maybe there is a hint if a 'new tech of the day' gets repeated uses. But they usually d...

Re: current status of knight rider the fan game ???

This project is in a weird spot.

Things are rarely that straight forward. The next be...

Re: current status of knight rider the fan game ???

While I still think the patch/DLC is the safer way to go, I got a better idea for sneaking by the legal catch. First off, DON'T name the game Knight Rider (anything). Be cleaver about it. KR related. And, to me, going with a suggestive title sounds better. Like call it "The Phoenix.' (Get it? As in ...

Re: current status of knight rider the fan game ???

I still say the wisest approach to all this is to release a generic driving game. Universal downloads the game, sees nothing at all of their material and thinks nothing more of it. Now the Knight Rider material is a side option patch that isn't directly present upon the main page. Sure. The code may...

An interesting bit of nostalgia.

Thanks to CBS Online, I just got a chance to watch an old MacGyver episode. 'Three for the road'. Starring Edward Mulhare as his always charming self. I kind of vehicle chase episode. Also starring another one of Glen's nostalgic co-starring actors, Richard Hatch. Oh, how small Hollywood really is. ...

Re: Anyone know the name of the COMTRON Font?

That makes sense. Amiga was so far ahead of everyone else for the time. I mean...modern PC's still have yet to catch on to the idea of throwing CPU's under the hood like they were dirt cheap. (Those machines had lots of co-processors to handle single task jobs, as I understand it.)

Re: Anyone know the name of the COMTRON Font?

Was letter styling back then even known as a font??? Anyhow...I suspect that was a form of lettering connected to 'modern technology' of the '70s & early '80s. So, if I were to guess about a name of a possible font, I'd call it "Technology" or maybe even "SiliconValley". On ...

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...

An interesting idea strikes me.

Now...there would be an active web site running for the fans to put in all their ideas in...
