Re: why wasn't KR08 successful?

I kinda look at it this way: It's sort of like Windows Vista...When It first came out it was all ballyhooed, the end all be all...but then people started to try it, and hated that it always seemed not to do what it should have done. Too bloated, and could never just work. When Microsoft (i.e. the ne...

Re: There may be a lil bit of hope for knight rider read inside

I keep saying it in the hopes that people would figure out that the energy spent on the TV series should be spent on the Motion Picture. That is the only thing that has any real chance of becoming a reality. Did I like KR 08? yes, but it's too far gone at this point to bring back. Chuck has more adv...

Re: There may be a lil bit of hope for knight rider read inside

You need to remember that the meeting you suggested DID happen. NBC tightened the reigns, made the changes to lop off Graiman, Torres, and Carrie, and get back to basics. But it was probably also decided that unless there was a HUGE ratings increase, KR08 was a goner. You'd think that NBC would have...

Re: A Hint for a Second Season on the DVD ????

Kenobi, what probably happened is that the artwork for the DVD was done before the show was not renewed. Pre-production is done months ahead, so while one might think it's an easy fix to change printing, it isn't. A show that has a DVD of it's only season (but is called the 1st season) is the Dresde...

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

My point is that if Knight Rider 2008 followed that (more continuity from TOS) then the show would still be on and if was on a different night . Super Flash, what night from the 2008 season would have been the optimal placement for the show? Here's a link to the Wikipedia entry for the listings of ...

I am curious about post here states that KITT in the original series was not an actual Trans AM but a knock off or copy of one. Super Flash, Pontiac was originally all happy about all the advertisement that it got with having KITT be a Trans-Am. A train full of T/As derailed, and even though the ca...

Not just that, but the timing is all wrong. It'd mean that KR 08's Michael Knight would have been like 22 when the Pilot came out...I just don't buy it.

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

It's all about the licensing. Now if an existing vehicle is used as KITT, then people could make their own versions, like all the copies you have seen before. But the thing about the Knight 2000 is that it's not a production line vehicle, not made in mass quantities. In TOS, it looked very simular t...

Re: Deanna Russo Confirms Knight Rider death

I'll try to cut this down, so it doesn't choke on it's own weight... Ford was the only car company that had a licensing agreement with the show to use their products and they couldn't use Cadillac or Dodge or any other car company for that matter so why the problem with Ford anyway? I have no issue ...

Re: Deanna Russo Confirms Knight Rider death

Where do some of you have a problem with the KITT's transformations? Go back to the original series fourth season and didn't the original KITT transform from regular car to convertible? How about Super Pursuit Mode and Emergency Braking System? Super Flash, if you were to do the show in the 80's, w...

Re: FLAG's base of operations

TOS did it right. There were instances where KITT needed to have a higher level of maintenance that Bonnie & April couldn't do in the semi. KR 08 had too many people involved (450) at the one facility. Because we got 2 different shows (the first 13 eps and the last 5), the plane was needed for t...
