Re: Soemthing that peeves me

What makes most sense is KITT being an advanced form of a CVT. Not a traditional transmission and certainly not a manual when the AI controls everything. All that tech and an immobilized hunk of metal just b/c its a stick and can't motivate itself but depends on a human. Its laughable.

Re: NBC Still Calling the March 4th Episode The "Season Finale"

The week of April 1st is when the NBC fall slate will be announced. So a month to go. If you haven't started your "save the show" campaigns better hurry up and get it done now. I'm sure we'll get a several lame attempts at April Fools jokes whether NBC announces it that day or later in th...

Re: Live Discussion - Knight and the City

A lot of the problems from the past few weeks seem to still be continuing here. If the majority of people enjoy the episodes and a few don't, they're written off and dismissed as being negative, drama queens, or sourpusses. Yes, I've complained about nitpicks, too. So what?

Re: Ratings for "Knight and the City"

The problem with moving a show like KR to a friday night is that the younger generation (the ones that watch it) go out, get drunk and have fun. It makes no sense to move it to a Fri or Sat night. Sunday would be cool. It makes complete sense to move a show like KR to a friday/saturday night. KR is...

I didn't care for it. The only episodes I liked pre-reboot are Journey and Hard Day's Knight. Everything else was forgettable.

Re: Ratings for "Knight and the City"

I don't think ads would have made a significant difference. That wasn't going to bring back the audience who initially tuned in and then stopped watching. They moved on a long time ago. The retooling was primarily for the fans. What's interesting to me is that KR doesn't have the typical weekly dro...

Re: Season Finale on March 4th according to NBC.com

Its not affirmation that it will be renewed. Networks use "series finale" only when they have officially released prior to its airing that the series will definitely conclude its run with that final episode. Nothing about the future status of KR has been released and KR's last episode is t...

Combining the phrases "series" and "canceled" in one sentence might get you yelled at here. No, there is one more episode left this season and it airs in 2 weeks. After that we won't know anything with certainty until April at the latest since that's when the fall season is annou...

Re: Option: What about USA or Sci-Fi?

I really hope they do renew it but i have a gut feeling that they won't. The situation reaks of what they did to Vegas last year. Show ended in february and then never mentioned it again. Although you would think they would learn from their mistakes. Vegas did really well in the ratings on fridays ...

Ratings are still bad. It doesn't matter how good the episode was. People DO NOT KNOW it improved! NBC needs to do some PROMOTING dammit! Meh... I think that's it guys, the end of the road. True. More than one person I know didn't even know its still on the air. They haven't seen commercials for it...

7/10. Not a greatly written or acted episode. But the turbo boost was awesome and KITT's personality is growing which are good things.

I just meant he's not letting any grass grow under his feet. Considering that episode of Mentalist was probably taped a couple of months ago, he probably went right to it after Knight to Kings Pawn was taped. I do hope he finds something permanent, as he is a believable actor. Its actually not that...

Re: A post about giving KR a chance at a second season.

I agree with everything you say, Mr. Marcus, except moving KR to Friday or Saturday. You're thinking along the lines of TOS, aren't you? Those days are the absolute WORST days for this show to be set to, going with the trend of commercials, nobody is going to know or really care about Knight Rider....

Re: A post about giving KR a chance at a second season.

With a few more tweaks it should merit a renewal. It doesn't have the ratings NBC was looking for but the new format has a reduced cast, less extras, less stunts, less CG yet its better than what NBC put out last September. It has to be costing less to make right now which should make NBC see it as ...

I liked his performance in The Sopranos, Season one Episode "46 Long." His best acting to date.
