Re: Overseas KR fans can watch the Tv movie online...

You know, if Michael Knight had taken that kind of black and white attitude to the letter of the law, Knight Rider would have been a pretty dull show! Just a thought! (For what it's worth, it always annoyed me that he never wore a seatbelt. "Passive Laser Restraint System" my arse!) By the...

Re: Future Knight Rider projects and Spoilers

True. To be honest, if we're going "hard line" against links to torrents, then the same iron justice should really be applied to any YouTube etc clip that's been posted without copyright consent.

Where do you draw the line?

Re: What features should KITT have in the movie?

I reckon a decent HUD (Heads Up Display) for KITT is a must, plus it would also be cool if the computerised elements of the interior could be completely camoflaged at the touch of a button. To be honest, depending on the overall tone taken by the new movie, I wouldn't mind if the fantastical leaping...

Re: Future Knight Rider projects and Spoilers

It will hurt them financially if you decide not to watch it when it hits whatever station over here if you didn't like it when you illegally downloaded it. Indeed, but that will serve them right for managing to screw up a great concept with a readymade fanbase (hopefully not though, fingers crossed...

Re: Does the new pilot have a title?

Confession time: I always cringe a little when I hear the title "Knight of The Phoenix" being used to describe the pilot episode. Larson didn't title the episode that, it never appears in the credits and moreover the whole "Knight of The Blah" episode titling schtick is so third ...

Re: Future Knight Rider projects and Spoilers

Speaking for myself, I will be downloading the new pilot the minute it hits the torrent sites. There's no way I could possibly hold out for 6 months or whatever the delay in it hitting the UK on ITV will be. I doubt NBC/Universal will care too much about folks like me and the other non-US forumites ...

Damn, how much would you pay just to be able to read that script? As regards the Vette, if Pontiac are too dumb to revive the Trans Am before shooting starts, I think it's the only sensible choice for the new KITT. An American classic that's sleek and sporty without straying into supercar territory....

I've tried driving my car while keeping my hands at 9 and 3 (or at least one or the other) and I have to say, I found it really hard to control. Basically, there's a good reason that most steering wheels are round! However, I often wonder how hard it would be to come up with some sort of speed adjus...

The SPM made him even sleeker even the rockets were smooth. I completely disagree with this!

Looks to me like it says "Registration Expires", which would mean it's the correct dash. The document was issued on August 17, 1984 There's also a bit that says Date First Sold, also 1984 it seems. Do you have to re-register your car every year in the States? I'll admit that I'm very skep...

Registered 1984 - guess that makes it a Season 3/4 screen-used car (which unfortunately means the guy who restored it put the wrong dash in!)

Still looks good though!

It's just a cheesy joke that actually makes for a cool sounding title, especially when spoken by Richard Basehart's dulcet tones. The show could have been called "Ass Monkey" and he would still have made it sound exciting and dangerous! Interesting that the phrase "night rider" q...

It's definitely a reflection. Possibly that scene was filmed during daylight and then treated in post production to look like night time, hence the extra bright looking reflection of what looks like palm trees. I believe this technique was used a lot in 70s/80s tv shows because it's cheaper and easi...
