Re: Entertainment Weekly predicts KR08 is canceled

Ah but KR had the most successful pre-transmission advertising campaign ever! The fact it didn't get the ratings NBC wanted is because people saw the awful vision GST had for the show in those early eps! So I wish people would stop bloody going on about NO advertising! There was tons! But as the se...

Sure. KARR is a ratings dynamo. You can guarantee they'll bring him back for November sweeps.

Re: Finally! Billy gets to be a hero!

I don't want to be Chicken Little here, but I do NOT see this as a good sign. Why would NBC allow him to star on an ABC comedy series if he was still under contract for Knight Rider? I can't recall an instance of an actor starring on two shows on two different (non-related) networks at the same tim...

Re: So does KITT have nano skin or nano shields?

The pilot film made it seem like the nanotech was a symbiotic entity that spread around the body of the car like a virus replicating. Almost like cells aggregating together to form a skin over the car. But the series made the concept much more mechanical. I prefer the series approach over the film o...

I think this may be a good idea, look at the Heros forum over 8,000 topics KR ony has 400. While the execs may use the ratings I am fairly sure their sites activity is considered as well. If not why bother having it available when their are fan sites such as KRO. B/c the internet is the next step i...

Re: NBC's KR forum is a ghosttown

NBC suits aren't going to care about that so I wouldn't stress over it. They care about ratings b/c that attracts advertisers who will pay top dollar for commercial time on a highly rated show. Just follow the money trail. That's all it takes. As far as fansites are concerned you'd be surprised. Whe...

Re: Why NBC should save "Knight Rider" - External Article

Make KR dark and give it great writers and you have a better chance of creating a series that will catch on. Explain Bionic Woman. Dark doesn't always mean better. All it will do is make KR seem like every other show on TV. Very simple. There will always be exceptions to any given rule, scenario, c...

Re: Why NBC should save "Knight Rider" - External Article

Mr. Marcus, I agree with you....to a certain extent. I personally think that the balance of the show has come a long way since inception - in terms of character balance, plotlines, and overall tone. I personally like the humorous touches, but the show never comes across as pure comedy - it comes ac...

We have to remember too that Knight Rider in the 80's was not campy. But looking back on it it is campy in retrospect ONLY because it was aired in the 80's. Likewise THIS version of KR will be campy 15 years from now without them trying to be. Make it serious and it will be campy by default years f...

Re: Why NBC should save "Knight Rider" - External Article

I'm trying to offer up some solutions. They tried it the GST way. If a dark tone and great writing is objectionable, then maybe KR is best left buried and remembered via TOS. The mass public was not interested in KR08 in the form it was presented in. The ratings proved that. There really isn't anywh...

Putting user comments aside and sticking solely to their article, they make a very compelling case. But its nothing new.

Re: Knight Rider's Fate

The concept can work but it needs to be more focused. In the 80s you could get away with the simple formula of a womanizer with a fast car/van/helicopter who blows stuff up and a bare bones plot that moves the episode along. Now you can't have female leads that are solely the damsels in distress. Th...
