I say go ahead and write it. Maybe they'll steal your ideas and hire you as a writer.
I think it's really interesting how people have TOTALLY different problems with this movie. Some people think that X actor did a terrific job, and others think s/he was completely unacceptable. Some people can't stand KITT, and others were thrilled with him. Some people were bothered by the sex, and others were obviously attracted by it. Does this seem to be a normal amount of variation to you? How can fans of Knight Rider all be so totally different? Ahh, the mysteries of the universe~~
As you can probably tell from my attempt at a positive thread, I'm feeling pretty good about the series. The only things that really bothered me were the scenes at the beginning, but not because I thought they were immoral. It was just that they seemed really out of place. I guess it was done to draw in viewers at the beginning, but seeing Agent Rivai sexily rinsing off after a swim was not entirely necessary. I found the lesbian scene afterwards amusing, though. It showed her character.
I also thought it was kind of weird how they had a team of bad guys that consisted of so many different stereotypes. Evil British guy... evil Asian guy... geeky hacker with giant glasses... token evil black guy...
One more little thing: I'm surprised at the amount of people who seem to consider the Hoff a great actor. I don't think he's bad
and, of course, I love him in Knight Rider, but I definitely never thought of him as "gifted." His acting was definitely silly in the original series, but it was okay because of the show's lightheartedness. I mean, as much as I loved "Goliath," Garthe Knight was ridiculous, and Michael's semi-frequent "I'm not going to let you get away with this" speech (with narrowed eyes and pointing at the bad guys) was totally cheesy. Remember that that Hoff too was a soap opera actor.
