The Night KITT Saved Christmas

Here is a bizarre but oddly catchy Christmas rap from 1983. Enjoy! m The night was cold, the story’s told On that fateful Christmas eve Snow so high it would be July Before it’d all unfreeze Santa Claus can’t wait to pause He had to make that flight The reindeer sailed but the wind prevailed And the...

Flashback Friday: Colorforms Rub n' Play set

This is an old Knight Rider Colorforms "Rub n' Play" transfer set. To me, Colorforms were always the little rubber images that you placed on a background and could reuse them over and over again. This set was permanent - once you put the pictures in place you were done. This box is in roug...

Re: KR Kiddie Ride...

Thanks jup... I removed the link. I did see the photo on a Mac (not targeted by .exe files) and you're right - it did have kind of a rendered look to it. Maybe just over-filtered.

Re: KITT build on Screen Machines Tuesday Dec 8

So this was a bit different from the Fast N' Loud show. For one thing, it was only 30 minutes so it was a much fast pace. And they did actually build a KITT from an old beat up Trans Am, rather than buying an existing replica. Unfortunately, because of time they really rushed over everything that's ...

Re: Kitt on Discovery Channel's Fast N' Loud Show

Well I guess I don't have to say anything since Vampire summed up my feelings perfectly. But I'll add something anyway. It was a fun 2 hours if you drop the expectations. Yeah, it would have been cool if it was an actual "build a KITT" show rather than a "buy a KITT" show. But ev...

Re: Found this the other night...

I thought the segment was pretty harsh when it first came out (poor Val Kilmer!) but I have to say it's very funny. The montage of all the turbo boosts totally captures the way we think of the original series. And I think the nerd smashing his head saying "no no no no no no!" is pretty acc...

Re: Rare Knight Rider Photos...

I love seeing the Knight Rider ads from other markets. It seems so bizarre to me: Knight Rider should be on channel FOUR, not TWO! I have a complete set from the New York City station.

Re: The Aficionauto KITT video (David drives KITT at El Mira

I LOVE this video. It's great to see how the host first says he never watched Knight Rider, but you can tell he became a complete convert after spending some time with KITT. You look great Jenn, and it's nice seeing the Hoff praising your car!

Why is it called "skiing"?

Driving on two wheels is called skiing in the stunt world. KITT had his Ski Mode. But why? Nothing about being on two wheels seems to relate to skiing at all. Why isn't it called surfing, or skating, or hopping, or even twerking?

Does anyone know the origin of the term?

David Hasselhoff is starring in a parody reality series called "Hoff the Record" on the comedy channel Dave in the UK. Some of the article I've seen are describing it as a "Curb Your Enthusiasm" style show based upon the (fictionalized) life of David Hasselhoff. It will be a six-...
