Re: KR08 needs YOU. Respond to Reviews

Exactly the reason why we need to mobilise our forum and get positive opinions out. I think the third review was kinda positive but that is debatable!

KR08 needs YOU. Respond to Reviews

So we have all seen some of the negative reviews coming out in constant hate of KR08. One has even got a live blog hating on the show as its aired episode at a time! Some people seem to have too much time to hate. Even some of the slightly positive reviews have little hope for the show. So, what can...

Re: Overnight Nielsons for Journey to the End of Knight

Sweet, thanks for that Shapeshifter. Anything we can do to drum up support? I'm not even in the US, but keen to see this series succeed.

Re: Overnight Nielsons for Journey to the End of Knight

I would imagine that most of these online reviews have "comments" sections. If we made sure to collectively hit as many of those and accentuate the *positive* about the episodes, it might help people see a different POV. ....thats kinda what I was thinking. Theres already loads of links o...

Re: Overnight Nielsons for Journey to the End of Knight

I was about to post some more online reviews for the second episode but they AGAIN were mostly negative. I'm starting to get really annoyed at reading those reviews which seem to miss the point of KR08 completely.....or the original KR for that matter. A lot of it seems to be seeing the original ser...

Re: Reviews, reviews, reviews (spoilers)

Would the success of the original series depended much on if KITT was a Camaro, Corvette or Trans AM? I don't think it would have been so significant. Similarly, I don't believe if the current car was any of the latest versions of the three mentioned car, that the show would be any different. Its in...

Re: Nielsen Ratings for 9/24

I'm starting to wonder how much of the ratings are down to the plastering of negative reviews everywhere? In our current age of the internet, word spreads pretty fast. Back when KR first aired, negative press wouldn't have had such an influence. What really annoys me is that Bones is beating Knight ...

Re: A message for NBC - Knight Rider outside the US

It seems to me NBC is just as eager to have their show on in other countries as you all are to watch them. Perhaps you should all write your local channels that usually air NBC shows and ask them for it. I believe the decision is theirs and not NBCs. Canada’s E was able to get the show and show it ...

Re: NBC READ THIS -- 83% say you should modify dashboard

Loved the purple interior of the top photo. The last photo would be more what I would expect of a very futuristic car but I liked the 2nd one - if they replaced the blue with yellow they'd have KARR! Well that purple dash made it to production. The whole new Fiesta colour range is abit "radica...

Re: A message for NBC - Knight Rider outside the US

Didn't I hear somewhere that the aussies have the new KR series?

KR was a massive hit in the UK back in the 80's. I am surprised no one has snapped up the rights for the new series yet? what the heck is going? ITV, Sky, Virgin.....someone get your gears in motion!!!!!

The top picture is from our European Ford Fiesta (sub-compact I guess to the USA?). Coincidentally I am a component engineer at Ford, UK and seen the new Fiesta first hand. The dash and instrumentation is pretty much what you see in that picture. I think the only thing that has changed alittle is th...

Naive?! Thanks for that compliment! I'll allow you your opinion as you should mine. I can't quite what I'm about to type but anyway, Knight Rider was never meant to be a serious show. Neither is it advanced story telling. Next to its peers of the time, the show is laughed about if considered to be a...
