Re: Favourite episodes from the back catalogue

I liked Knight Sting. I haven't got the season four DVDs, because I thought the last series was the weakest, but that does sound like a classic Knight Rider episode - the whole team working together. And I read on the Internet Movie Cars Database that the red car they disguise Kitt as - his 'tomato...

Re: watching the original series

I'm watching the original series again, too - picking random favourites from the first to the third seasons - and I love it. It had real heart, not style over substance. David Hasselhoff obviously really believed in his character, because Michael Knight is so real - an ordinary, amiable, genuine guy...

Re: Locations ?

This is a fascinating thread! I shall have to pay more attention so that I can contribute. And thanks to whoever identified the College of the Canyons as the test track in JYD, amongst other episodes - I've been meaning to look that up for ages! I don't suppose anybody has a clue about where Bonnie'...

Favourite episodes from the back catalogue

Long-time fan and hibernating poster delurking to join the community again - hello! After running out of 'favourite' episodes to watch anew, I thought I would try some 'fillers', as I think of them - the less-than-great storylines that make a series. And to my surprise, they are not so bad! I loved ...

Re: Kitt's memory

Re: The new Knight Rider...why they "keep getting it wrong".

I'd argue that her being a lesbian DID come up again. Remember the other annoying FBI agent who was obviously hitting on Carrie? Without the earlier bedroom scene, he's just a dork. But knowing what we know as an audience, his scene actually plays out more comically because "it's like dude... ...

Re: The new Knight Rider...why they "keep getting it wrong".

I don't think it's political correctness. I'd actually go more along the lines of them intentionally trying to push boundaries on TV. Which is fine. For my money, I think the addition of RC3 screamed political correctness. And again, that's fine, but I want to make sure we're comparing the two seri...

Re: The new Knight Rider...why they "keep getting it wrong".

All in all, character development and depth is a sign of the times. Notice that in other television series and movies? It's just the modern trend. Back in the '80s, it was OK if The A-Team's cast consisted of characters banded together by a war with one paragraph personalities and tons of action. T...

Re: The new Knight Rider...why they "keep getting it wrong".

With this new series, they want to make sure the secondary characters are more than just window dressing. And yes, that will probably involve romance. It's 2008; if she's a lesbian, more power to her. This is what gets me about 'modernising' old concepts - it seems to be about proving the original ...

Re: The new Knight Rider...why they "keep getting it wrong".

#1 - The name alone of "Mike Traceur" is corny. And to boot, I know they need a "good looking" guy to play the lead role, but they dipped too far in the pages of G.Q. for this fruit cake. His "baby-face" just doesn't match the role. Michael Knight was a good looking bu...

Re: Kitt's memory

Well, I think Kitt would definitely pass Turing's test for sentience! I don't think the question should be whether or not Kitt is sentient, or has the same qualities as a human - there are some things he can do better, and some he can't do at all - but whether he, and KARR, should have any extra rig...

Re: Kitt's memory

And, I conclude that KITT could, and did indeed have it all on board. However, I also say that KITT had an external back up that was linked afar. And, this was link was supported in the KARR episodes to prove it existed. Which is how KITT was even recoverable in Junk Yard Dog. And, alas, KITT is so...

Re: Kitt's memory

I think that from a dramatic standpoint, it's important that KITT does NOT have a main backup at the Foundation. Because that makes him less vulnerable, and then we care less when he gets hurt. If Bonnie could simply restore KITT at any time to the previous day's backup, then where is threat? Why s...

Kitt's memory

A hypothetical techie question from somebody who hasn't got a clue (Pardon me if this has been covered recently - I did a quick search, but couldn't find anything that covered this topic precisely!) Would Kitt need a network/mainframe, perhaps at the Foundation, to store his memory/data, or is the C...

I'd have to agree with whoever called themselves a sap - I love Junkyard Dog, and Soul Survivor (although more for the Michael-Kitt dialogue than the actual episode, which suffers from terrible 80s visual technobabble). JYD is damn near perfect, however - it's a destruction episode, but Kitt's fate ...

Oh, I realized that, FuzzieDice, but was just focusing on that later scene. As for the Manual Override, let's not forget that K.A.R.R. may have felt he was in danger himself, and therefore let his self-preservation programming take priority (because it is his priority). That is the main difference ...

Yeah the episode was made in tribute to that film wasn’t it? The A-Team also did an episode in tribute? Only the title was in tribute, I think.
