Re: knight rider slammy sammy episode tv spot error

Still makes more sense than Michael changing clothes mid-chase, or a finger pressing Turbo Boost in a empty KITT!

Re: Episode with the most Turbo Boosts?

They really ran out of budget in season 4, hey? :lol:

I think that for large periods - certainly season 2, 3 as well I think - two turbo boosts per episode were the norm.

Re: Stuff you hate in KR

I hated it when they used guest actors who had big roles (Ann Turkel, for instance) for a different role on another episode. We know it's not real, but just hire someone else and keep the magic alive.

An Australian KITT

Not all 'Kitt'' cars are cheap and nasty. Just ask the petrol heads and muscle car fans who were lining up to get a closer look at Glen Blazejak's 1982 Pontiac TransAm at the American Car Nationals on Sunday. The shiny black missile is an immaculate replica of ''KITT'', the Knight Industries Two Tho...

Hasselhoff in Peter Pan

So, I happened to be in England a few days ago and went to Nottingham to see Hasselhoff doing the role of Captain Hook again. It's obviously a kids play, but they've made certain adaptations to pull in older crowds and they've got stuff there no kid would understand. I thought it was great, The role...

Yeah, I've noticed that the first time, really. For a guy who's out of oxygen he's in no hurry to gain some. Weirdly bad editing, not the only time it happened, though.

Those certainly were exciting times. Unfortunately the whole thing left a bitter taste in my mouth. The show could and should have been done better and treated better.

Re: Did bringing back guest stars/villians 2-3 times hurt KR

I don't think it really hurt Knight Rider. It was just silly, especially when it's actors who performed memorable roles in memorable episodes. Like the guy who played Dr. Bergstrum in Goliath Returns becoming a villain in season four. Just stupid. If you use some less memorable actors, OK then, but ...

Re: Variety review of Deadly Maneuvers

To be fair, he did have some good points. Future car stunts were better and the role of Michael Knight did get, as he asked, "more of a character and less of a cliché to work with". When you look at future episode and seasons it's clearly a case of a show that still had to find itself.

Re: Your VERY first impression of Knight Rider

Well, the show was long gone by the time I got to watch it first. I think I must have been around 14 or so, so it would be something like 1993. They showed Knight Rider on a re-run in an Israeli children channel (yes, a children channel. It's OK, they also showed A-Team...). I just got a glimpse of ...

Re: Knight Rider Second Series 2008 Why Cancelled?

James, you're quite correct in saying they didn't really give the older fans much in terms of connection to the old show, telling us what happened to those characters, to FLAG, etc. Having said that, it had little to do with the show not doing well in the ratings and then cancelled. It needed to bri...

In "Goliath" Garthe and Elizabeth went throught a whole lot of trouble to get the MBS formula and in KOTJ they just "had it". They never actually put the MBS back in KITT in that episode. Obviously the assumption is it was done later (as without it KITT is too volunrable), but i...

Re: Deanna Russo Confirms Knight Rider death

All comes down to what Michael Knight told KITT in Soul Survivor, when the KITTless Knight 2000 car turbo boosted over them: It didn't have your soul. Without it, it could never be the same.

It just didn't have the soul, didn't have the heart.

Re: If A Team movie succeeds, maybe KR will be made!

Maybe not an 1982 trans am, but there are still modern slick cars which can be upgraded to something special. The Mustang from the show wasn't bad but it had a totally different vibe.
