Re: The Beginning and Ending Scenes of The Pilot Episode

I wonder if those could really be the same plants after all these years. Its probably just a fun coincidence. Yes. IMHO, the following figure (google steet view) suggests that they are the same. The major cue is the 'dirt road' branch next to the plant (maybe yucca tree) in the lower right part of ...

Re: The Beginning and Ending Scenes of The Pilot Episode

one man's dream ... This is my field trip to the desert ending location. It was one hour before the sunset, so the lighting in the photos was not ideal. It's still Oct. and there was no snow over the ridges yet. If you are not in S. California, you can take a virtual tour (street view) on Google Ma...

Re: Locations ?

It's been a while since my last post. After watching the KR2008 premiere, I kind of miss some of the styles in the original Knight Rider. There were many rural scenes (on the coast, in the mountains, by a lake, in the desert ...) where Michael was driving on the road at leisure before or after a mis...

Interesting that the mountains had snow back in the '80s and now they appear not to. Global warming, perhaps? According to Joe Huth: "The Pilot was filmed July 8-26 and August 18, 19 and 26, 1982...HOWEVER, that footage of the ending desert scene features KITT's stock looking nose...so that me...
