Re: DST - Classic Electronic KITT Toy upcoming...!

What's truly awesome is that it looks like the Super Pursuit Mode version looks like its fins will retract in and out!! I was wondering why they didn't make a more accurate-looking SPM spoiler, now I know why. Can't wait for this!

Two Original Knight Rider Themes

Years ago, I noticed that there were two slightly different versions of the original Knight Rider theme. The first version was quite obviously made by Stu Phillips and Glen Larson (it can be found on Stu Phillips' original scores CD available on iTunes). The second version (which is the one that's m...

KRO can stop spam from bots (that is, software, as opposed to people posting spam) by adding custom logic to the registration page. The thing is that this logic may be extremely simple, even trivial, as long as it is unique to the board. Adding a simple "are you a spammer? yes/no" check b...

Re: George Barris: King of TV's custom cars - CNN

Looks like there's a bit of debate going on in the article's comments section regarding the Black Beauty from The Green Hornet , and who really created it. Knight Rider is hardly mentioned in the audio clip. The article does briefly mention K.I.T.T., but only in the context of saying that America is...

Re: Michael Long's Trans-Am

Thanks for the insight, Victor. It's a much more settling thought to know that Wilton Knight had selected the Trans Am body to cater to what he thought Michael Long's tastes would be, as opposed to it just being a wild coincidence that both men chose the same vehicle. And making as smooth a transiti...

Re: Michael Long's Trans-Am

I'm glad you asked as I've been wondering lately as to what Glen Larson intended K.I.T.T. to be. And by the way, the Pilot was written independently of "Trust Doesn't Rust," in which the character of K.A.R.R. was created from another writer's interpretation later on. So with K.A.R.R. being...

Re: Would it possible...

While I personally really like the song, I can tell you it definitely shouldn't belong in the end credits. Its lighter tone seems to contradict everything we've come to hear about the tone of the upcoming film. I'm not sure if it would have a place in the movie anyway, as it would be too on-the-nose...

Re: Why wasn't kitt renamed in season 3

I think maybe the body itself should have gotten a name change from Knight Two Thousand since the CPU isn't really kitt.Maybe the body should have been called Knight Three Thousand but it would seem weird that its using an older knight 2000 CPU. That wouldn't make any sense. The Knight 2000 will al...

Re: K.I.T.T. Dashboard/Voice Modulator Blunders

Two errors if you freeze frame it a split second before the last cop goes past: 1) the rear light fixture of KITT that is normally custom flat gloss black, is not flat gloss OR black. It is standard 'lines' of light. The reason for this is that this was the very first scene shot in the entire serie...

Re: Why wasn't kitt renamed in season 3

For KITT to receive a new designation, I reckon he'd need to be transferred to a new CPU with significant technological enhancements. Case in point: K.A.R.R.(E.) in the 2008 series (if we are to assume the K.A.R.R. featured in that series was indeed the original). In "Knight Of the Drones,&quo...

Funny how most star cars like the Back To the Future DeLorean and the Attack K.I.T.T. end up rotting on Universal's backlot, yet for some odd reason the Knight 4000 keeps being reused and repainted for different shows.

I gotta say, it's pretty cool to see a comic book made off of one of my favorite episodes in the series.
