Re: The Scanner

I love the new one, think it is so much better than the original. The original was brilliant yes, but brilliant for its time. Today it would look antiquated. And they did use LED's for this new one, they just put more work into it rather than a simple stream of lights, and I think it has paid off am...

Re: opening title sequence

I just re-watched the title sequence from the pilot, and there's no footage in it that wasn't from the pilot, so it's entirely possible they could make it work here just with footage from the new TV movie. But as goldbug just pointed out, most shows don't even have theme songs these days, what with...

Re: Kilmers voice

Hardly fair to compare this to the travesty that was Batman Forever. It wasn't Kilmer's fault they wanted to camp it all up. Clooney is a fantastic actor and look at the piece of rubbish Batman HE was in! I prefer Kilmer as KITT, Arnett sounded too like KARR. He was good, don't get me wrong, but Kil...

Re: opening title sequence

They should keep it for the series, and possibly just do a completely new one. I'd like to see that, otherwise you'll have the usual "not as good as the orignal" comments, no matter how much better it actually is. For the movie it probably won't have one. The original KR pilot did, but the...

Re: New KITT

no-one can deny that the Camaro would have looked better for the part. No, that's your personal opinion. Not fact. So saying no one can deny it is a bit silly. It's not a denial, they went with what they thought was the better car, and I for one completely agree with them, the Camaro doesn't look t...

Re: Can TKR tie-in, in any way possible?

TKR was an atrocious abomination to the original series. Yes they said there's nothing in this movie that will really conflict with the other spin-offs but also that they are not referencing them. It's more of a coincidence that there's nothing to contradict them, if the series goes ahead I think it...

Re: KITT now on Leno's garage webcast

Well I remember in the commentary to the pilot on the DVD sets that Larson did say they had to do work to the Trans Am to make it go as fast as they wanted it to.

I'm LOVING the voice!! Val Kilmer should've been involved from the word go! And I want one of those Mustangs baby!!

Re: what does Knight Rider mean to you?

As a child, Knight Rider was an obsession! It was all about KITT being awesomely powerful and Michael being funny and cool. As an adult, the "one man can make a difference" spine of the show really shines through, maybe not so in season four, but that's what it means to me now. I also have...

Re: I'm almost ashamed to admit this

Great find. Don't be ashamed, you were doing "research" ;)

Six years he has signed on for! Wow! I hope the series lasts that long and is a huge hit without the steady-decline-in-ratings-as-the-ideas-got-sillier that the original suffered from.

I think that, in today's world. You use seat belts. End of discussion. It's against the law not to, and no amount of explanation would make it OK for them not to use them.

Re: NBC Target Ratings Expectations?

It's strange, Buffy was advertised as a smash hit yet it managed relatively low ratings, with about 3 or 4 million. Guess it was high for the network it was on. KR2000, according to The Hoff's book, was never going to be turned into a weekly series. Originally envisioned as three seperate tele-movie...
