Re: Knight Rider Second Series 2008 Why Cancelled?

After having given this thought on and off for a couple years, I have to agree that in terms of what KR2008 was up against, the show was kind of doomed from the start. I can't help but wonder if the show might have done better on a network like USA or TNT where smaller rating numbers can still be co...

Re: Last Screen Used Knight 2000 - Knight Rider Historians P

Interesting to see it "revealed"! I figured it was a "standard" car covered up by tarp. It was a dark scene but great to see they're going to convert it to a "hero" car!

Re: The Story Behind K.R.O.

I like to believe that the story starts out as a positive one. Michael is retiring (or "dies" etc.), KITT is put out to pasture (sorta) and FLAG decides there needs to be a replacement. They find Martin, they develop the empathic imprinting for KRO and there are some great adventures betwe...

Re: Will KR Ride again?

I think it will come back again in some form, but it wouldn't shock me if it took another 5-10 years for it to happen. KR is a franchise that seems to emerge every decade or so for another round. The fact that the KR2008 "pilot" movie garnered so much interest and ratings shows that people...

Re: Hasselhoff and his renewed Knight Rider Movie passion

I think I've grown beyond the need for Hasselhoff to be IN a new KR incarnation, but I'd love for him to be one of the guiding creative forces behind it. If he appears, that's a bonus IMO. The KR 2008 series could have done with more influence from him. While I enjoyed aspects of the series, it neve...

Re: Is Knight Rider 2010......

I'd bid on it. I'm in the minority of people who enjoyed KR 2010 on its own merits. I saw online somewhere that a DVD was released outside the US somewhere but have never been able to find it.

Re: NBC May Be Considering Reinstating Leno on ‘Tonight Show’

The irony of all this is that if they got ratings like KR08 did now with most of their shows, they'd be ecstatic. TV ratings overall are down significantly. While I do think KR08 was mismanaged in many ways, I wonder if it drew the same ratings would it be considered a success now.

Re: Knight Rider Rated In Worst Tv Shows Of The Decade

Sorry, but someone's standards are clearly warped. With a decade that has brought us gems like Bravo's "The Housewives of..." and the more recent "The Jersey Shore", calling KR08 one of the worst is just silly IMO. Was it a masterpiece? No. And sadly, yes, it was a failure, but i...

Re: Official cancellation posted by Sci Fi

I've sort of put KR08 out of my mind since all the press announced it was gone. It was a big downer for me. I've wanted a successful KR relaunch for years, and they seemed to have put so much effort behind this one I was praying it would work out. Sadly it didn't do the trick. I applaud the positive...

Fantastic interview. You can feel how easy going and nice she is in those words. There seems to be no pretentious attitude there and I find that refreshing. I totally agree with her on the scene with KITT and the "squirt" and I like how she brings up the "brother/sister" aspect o...

Re: Most improved player: Zoe?

However, something else I've noticed (and this may be a consequence of Smith Cho's acting style) is that Zoey is almost always really calm....she isn't really fazed by much, which is a quality that I really like about her. She knows how to be serious, and she knows how to joke (although she might n...

Re: Live Discussion - Knight and the City

I am the only one amongst the posters who didn't like the episode.The plot wasn't exciting looks like the writers are running out of ideas.

Re: Live Discussion - Knight to King's Pawn

So, why did KARR need KITTs personality and program? Did they get it? Was it "copied" or "moved" to the internet? I know they said it was needed to override KARR's evil personality, but why not remove the original personality altogether? Why would KITT not wake up in that chassi...

Hmmm...you know, after watching this episode, nothing in it ever confirms or denies that this is the original KARR cpu. I could see the "military KARR" easily being based on the original KARR's programming. Granted I would have liked that to have been said implicitly, but at least they're ...

I definitely wanted more KARR - of course, I would have been happy if the entire episode was just KITT and KARR beating the crap out of each other. That said, I really enjoyed the reerences to the original series, of which there were quite a few. Wilton Knight's name being invoked, now we know what ...

Re: New KARR footage on NBC's website

Looks great! And I'm not sure all the post production clean up work is done yet. With as much moving as KARR's parts are doing, you'd think we'd be hearing some type of whirring or clanking, but his movements produce no sound at all. Guess we'll find out tonight. :)

No, that's from "Knight of the Hunter", the fifth episode. Ah, my bad. I didn't remember the flipping being so severe in "Hunter". Still, considering the guns KARR is packing, I'm not surprised KITT looks like this after the fight. But yeah, this does seem rather like "Junk...

There's a scene in the new opening credits where KITT is blasted, lights on fire and flips. I'm sure this is the aftermath of that. And yeah, I totally got "Junkyard Dog" vibes off of this!
