Re: Here's some KR forward thinking that we all overlook.

Artificial intelligence has to start somewhere. I'm sure at some point an early version of K.I.T.T. was rather equal to today's Siri. Now you can buy vehicles with automatic trunks that open and close by themselves, but it was revolutionary in KR. You know, that reminds me: all that talk from Apple ...

Re: Here's some KR forward thinking that we all overlook.

Speaking of two-way communication, there's another forward thinking KR example: Michael could communicate with full color and video wirelessly in K.I.T.T. with Devon. People thought it was impressive the Batmobile has a phone in it. Then of course we have a laser mounted on K.I.T.T. in one or two ep...

Re: Another sci-fi bit becomes reality.

Here's an Apple co-founder who says in 20 years people won't even be allowed to drive:

Enjoy your eventual new Apple freedom; by "freedom" I mean not being allowed to drive. People gleefully throw their money at them still.

Let's just hope that Uncle Sam isn't the black mailing type.

Re: Another sci-fi bit becomes reality.

What's even worse is that they'll force self-driving cars on us. They'll keep expanding them into more areas and more and more people will drive them (as apparently a number of today's youth don't understand the need for a car). Cities and/or states will start taxing people for driving non self-driv...

Composer Stu Phillips made a post at filmscoremonthly.cokm with his farewell to Larson:

For those fans of many of Glen Larson's shows, I regret to inform you that Glen passed away of cancer just recently. He was a long time friend of mine as well as employer since 1964.

Re: KITT Cars My History.

Skip all those butt-ugly Mustang's, and it's a good K.I.T.T. line. We'll just pretend F.L.A.G. folded Michael was forced elsewhere, until a problem arises and he and still-living members, along with Bonnie, revigerate the program to save the day, after the Mustang's.

According to an introduction to the game on Yotuube, you get to pick your characters cloths, with many options. There may indeed be a red shirt and black jacket.

For a fan game, you guys have done an amazing job.

I do have one complaint -- yes, I know, everybody has one, though I feel this one is a good one:

The music score. It just brings it down. Have you tried talking with Don Peake? He's a nice guy.

Re: Funny random thoughts while watching Knight Rider

How about when K.I.T.T. warms Michael, using his scanners, that someone is approaching, thus helping Michael get out early or avoid harm, that is selective? Sometimes K.I.T.T. does it, sometimes he doesn't. Is he too busy playing Pong?

Nothing personal against Hitchcock Media Records , but even the best mastering of one of hte KR score Cd's, wasn't as good as it could have been (considering masterings from other TV shows from around that decade, from other labels, like Intrada Records and Film Score Monthly).
