Re: Attack Mode Transformation

Regardless, I like the first transformation better due to the more organic feel. I don't know if we'll see a second season of this show, but if we do and the transformations must stay, I'd like to see something closer to the first transformation (unless the Masterkey guys have deleted that transform...

Re: The Hasselhoff Effect? NBC's future of KR

Haven't watched the pilot in a long time, so I don't know what's going on with KI2T. I don't agree with that. Yet, KI2T would be technically obsolete by today's standards, but it could still exist. If it was never dismantled, or destroyed, or otherwise lost, it'd still be around. My cell phone is 4 ...

Re: Live Discussion - Fight Knight

I want to see him hit at least 200 in Attack Mode, on a straightaway or something. That's coming fairly close to the record speed for a non-open-wheel car. KI3T should be able, logically, to hit 150 in Normal Mode without much fuss; speeds above that would be helped by the aerodynamics of Attack Mod...

Re: Attack Mode Transformation

Given that the transformations are probably here to stay, I'll live with what we have now (which is really good, considering). I should clarify my initial question. Between the two transformations, which do you guys prefer? I personally like the "alternate transformation" link, as it seems...

Re: KR Ratings

I think, with the changeover to digital TV signalling, that we'll see better monitoring. From what I understand, channels will be able to send and receive data, similar to an internet connection - the idea was to introduce interactivity into TV viewing sessions, to some extent, but with this technol...

Attack Mode Transformation

Given that we'll probably see this again, I found this video on KRO; it's a slightly different version of the transformation to Attack Mode. I think it looks a little smoother, but it looks as though Masterkey went with a different transformation for the final cut. What do you guys think? I personal...

Re: Black out

Someone had already made a thread similar to this one, comparing the pilot attack mode and series attack mode. There was a photoshopped pic of KI3T without the double wing, and without the side intakes, and it looked pretty good. I'd find the thread but I am too lazy. I must say....I never actually ...

Re: Why the blacked out windows?

That's true. The jailbreak scene was one of the best ones in that regard - I liked the whole "hey, what is that" with the guard seeing KI3T in Attack Mode through the binoculars, approaching at very high speed. It fit the pacing really well and saved valuable time. They could do a really c...

Re: The Hasselhoff Effect? NBC's future of KR

Yeah, the problem there was, and is, that the 80's show was only cheesy because it was an 80's show. It wasn't meant to intentionally be cheesy. Tongue-in-cheek? Yeah, maybe a little, as it was "the Lone Ranger, but with a car", but I don't think that it was actually meant to be cheesy. Th...

Re: The Hasselhoff Effect? NBC's future of KR

The only effect it will have is to please the KR fans. The general public will not care. They have written this show off a long time ago. The entire KR concept has been carrying the baggage of "cheesy 80s show" since TOS went off the air. So no Hoff effect will change this. If any creativ...

Re: KITT using a holographic presence when in auto cruise

Gotta wonder if an ability like that gives KI3T too much power....I fear that it could promote lazy writing and serve as a deus ex machina in some subplots. Further, it would take the emphasis off of KI3T and put it square on Holo-Mike's shoulders...I'd rather see KI3T deal with the "no driver&...

Re: Live Discussion - Fight Knight

To All Fans: It seems that many of you would like to see more stunts as in the original series. Obviously it would be very expensive to do those stunts with real vehicles, which is why in the original series, miniature models were used to show the stunts. Although I would like to see stunts, I woul...

Re: second season they should have michael use a

Mike using a watch communicator might be appropriate for one episode, as a nod to TOS, but I'm not sure I can see it being used all the time. Although the earwig seems to be problematic (as a plot device), it really has many more obvious advantages than a watch in terms of stealth and durability. Th...

Re: KITT using a holographic presence when in auto cruise

This would be a great way to do a Val Kilmer Easter Egg, or maybe they could use one of the Masterkey guys as the driver... ....but logically, they'd just use the stunt driver as the driver. I'm open to this idea and would like to see it as an upgrade later in the season. I'd prefer if KI3T only mod...

Re: Red KR Logo

I might be wrong, but I think Lynda's correct about Knight Fever. There might have been a red logo on the hand panel used to deactivate the self-destruct, but I might be completely wrong. Episodes, however, are on Hulu.com - and you can probably pull a fullscreen screencap of that.

Re: Why the series KR08 has disappointed me...

Its probably coming, but they now need a mobile command center. You can't run Attack Mode from Chitown to LA to fix the car. Trucks are cheap, and make sense. I'd want a slide out on both sides for a little extra space... Y'know, they probably will end up doing something like this...but then, they'...

Re: Why the blacked out windows?

If we are to take the blacked out windows from the story standpoint (that is, to keep a secret), it would be nice to see an effect of KITT blackening his windows when he went driving driverless, and unblackening his windows once Mike is in and driving by himself. As of the moment the car's windows ...

Re: second season they should have michael use a

I'm not sure but I think the whole "Mike doesn't have the earwig" thing might be a plot formula they've decided to use. It's happened in the past two episodes - I'm wondering if we'll see it again. If we do, it might confirm my suspicions. I don't necessarily think it's a bad thing - I lik...

Re: Why the blacked out windows?

Watching KI3T drive without tinted windows would really be awesome. But accepting the current facts, there are financial and production reasons they aren't doing it. Otherwise, again, I'm sure that they would have. Perhaps, if there's a second season, we'll see more of it - they may find a way. But ...
