Re: Knight Rider Origins

I think I read somewhere he was contractually obligated to provide a certain number of shows for universal and knight rider was supposed to be his last show for them. He only supervises the first 8 episodes of any tv series he created. After that he hands over the reigns to someone else to carry it ...

Re: Junk Yard Dog

The key to what Michael and Bonnie do is in the conversation with Dr. Von Vorman after KITT struggles with the obstacle course. The doctor has written KITT off. He can't understand that there is an intangible human element to KITT now, because he only sees a machine. What Michael and Bonnie do is m...

Re: Junk Yard Dog

Knight Racer is Right that the Car and the Mind are One. Actually my point was the opposite of what you're saying. The entire series they were showing us the car and mind aren't one. In the first episode Devon let Michael drive through the hangar doors. Devon had to activate the car's mind by typin...

Re: Had ki2t and ki3t met do you think they would’ve got along ???

The only other chance encounter we ever had where kitt interacted with another vehicle AI was karr. kitt never saw karr as a big brother. He did however enjoy being unique in a statement he made at the end of trust doesn't rust. I think his AI evolved over time too being exposed to people around him...

Knight Rider Origins

While looking for the clip of Glen Larson discussing how he picked the music for the knight rider intro for Whet, I found this clip that discussed another old anecdote of knight rider's origins:

Agreed, but the shot in the second clip at 22 seconds is a direct closeup of the dash. They could have just skipped filming the dash completely for that shot.

Junk Yard Dog

I was watching the clip of kitt being repaired in Junk Yard dog when both Michael and Bonnie worked on him together and something dawned on me. The series reminds people constantly that kitt isn't the car. Kitt is just a series of microprocessors CPU that runs the Knight 2000 vehicle. Why would they...

I bought all 5 of the novels: https://i.imgur.com/4zaE0aU.jpg Some were as low as $0.50 to a few dollars. They definitely have additional scenes that weren't in the shows.

Re: If Knight Rider had a 5th season and moved to syndication

That was their plan for knight rider 2000 revival to be a movie of the week for maybe a few episodes a year. Unfortunatly it didn't do well enough to justify even that in 1990. Sadly the only read time for a talking car was the 80's.
