Screenplay, fanfiction, new series. Any good?

Post by Sue » Wed Apr 16, 2008 3:15 am

Here we go, a work in progress, if you don’t like it we’ll just fix it in post :D … If you do like it I might just finish it.

(FYI it looks like I lost all my nice screenplay formatting hope you can still make it out)

ACT 1
FADE IN:

INT HOTEL DAY

MIKE TRACEUR Stumbles down a hallway of a fancy hotel, he fumbles with the call button of an elevator.

MIKE
This is not good.

INT PARKING GARAGE DAY

A black mustang starts its motor.

KITT
Mike, are you ill?

MIKE
I don’t think I should have drunk that.

KITT
Mike, my sensors are indicating that you are developing an irregular heartbeat. I am very concerned.

INT FBI HEADQUARTERS

Agent CARRIE RAVAI looks up at a large screen display indicating Mike’s vital signs.

CARRIE
Mike you’ve been poisoned! You need to get to the car!

INT PARKING GARAGE DAY

Mike stumbles out of an elevator into the garage. His eyes blur as the dark shape of a mustang moves in front of him. He loses his balance and slumps to the pavement.

INT FBI HEADQUARTERS

CARRIE
Mike! Get in the car.

A second agent in the office, DYLAN FASS is now glued to the large screen display.

DYLAN
Get in the car! Get in the car!

INT PARKING GARAGE DAY

KITT opens his passenger door and gingerly backs up to Mike who is lying on the ground. KITT’s door encircles him but can do no more.

KITT
Mike I am sorry I can be of no further assistance unless you are able to get in.

Mike blinks his eyes trying to focus.

MIKE
I can’t.


INT FBI HEADQUARTERS

CARRIE
Mike you can! Just get in the car! That’s all you have to do, just get in!

INT PARKING GARAGE DAY

MIKE
I can’t, I can’t move.

KITT
I understand that you can’t Mike. I am sorry that I am unable to assist you.

MIKE
It’s okay KITT.

Mike sleepily licks his dry mouth as he lies on the pavement.

KITT
I promise I will stay right here Mike. In a way you will not be alone. If you have any last words, any
messages, I will record them.

MIKE
What?

KITT
It is widely acknowledged that being able to say goodbye to a friend before their death will ease…

MIKE
Screw that!

MIKE reaches up and pulls himself into the passenger seat of the car.

INT FBI HEADQUARTERS
Dylan rubs his forehead relieved still watching the monitor.

DYLAN
He’s in the car.

INT PARKING GARAGE DAY

KITT exits the parking garage and quickly gets up to speed. A dark SUV follows.

KITT
Mike I am very concerned about your vital signs. I will give you instruction on
what to do. It is very important that you try to focus and do what I tell you, do you understand?

MIKE
Alright.

KITT opens his glove compartment and pushes out two defibrillator pads.

KITT
Take these, remove the backing and place them on your chest as shown in this illustration.

KITT indicates the procedure on his screen. Mike feebly struggles with the backing, but is able to comply. Another item pops out of his glove compartment.

KITT
Take this syringe in contains adrenaline it will keep your heart going.

Mike takes out the syringe and eyes up its four inch long needle.

MIKE
What exactly are you expecting I do with this?

KITT
You must stab it directly into your heart and inject the fluid. I will display the location of the injection on
my screen.

MIKE
Oh no, I don’t think so.

INT CARGO JET

SARAH GRAIMAN chews on a pen nervously as she watches her computer screen.

SARAH
Mike just do it!

CHARLES GRAIMAN steps up behind her and looks over her shoulder.

INT KITT DAY

Mike looses consciousness and drops the needle to the floor. KITT’s monitors indicate a weakening heart rate.

INT FBI HEADQUARTERS

DYLAN
No, No… No, No No!

INT KITT DAY

KITT charges his defibrillator and shocks Mike. Mike jumps awake.

MIKE
Ahh! What was that?

KITT
I’m sorry Mike. I had to shock you; your heart was not sustaining a normal rhythm. I do strongly
recommend that you pick up the needle from the floor.


INT CARGO JET

SARAH
Pick it up Mike, this is serious!

INT KITT DAY

MIKE reaches down and picks up the syringe.

MIKE
I can hardly see… and I don’t know where...

KITT
It’s okay Mike, hold it over your chest and I will direct you.

MIKE lifts the needle up to his chest.

KITT
Down a half and inch… To your left a little… Stop. That is the spot, push it in.

Mike pushes the needle in and then drops it and passes out.


INT FBI HEADQUARTERS

Dylan looks at the screen with Mike’s falling heart rate and then at Carrie.

DYLAN
Did he get it in?

CARRIE
I think so.

Mike’s heart rate continues to drop until it is flatlineing.

INT CARGO JET

Sarah jumps up in her seat and stairs at her monitor where a glowing green line is indicating the lack of a heartbeat. Her father’s eyes widen behind her. Sarah hits a button that brings up the feed of a camera mounted inside the car; she looks at Mike’s slumped body.

SARAH
KITT what’s happening?

KITT (O.S.)
Mike’s heart has stopped I will attempted to reestablish a sinus rhythm.

INT KITT DAY

KITT shocks Mike with no effect. He raises the voltage and tries again.

INT CARGO JET

A voice modulator pops up on Charles’ computer screen, he moves to his desk next to Sarah’s and sits down.

KITT (O.S)
I require human assistance….

FADE TO:

INT FBI HEADQUARTERS

Same voice modulator appears on the large overhead screen.

KITT (O.S continued)
…I can only increase the oxygen levels in the cabin, however I am unable to make Mike breathe.

CARRIE
KITT keep trying we have a helicopter dispatched to your location it should rendezvous with you in less
that five minutes.

KITT (O.S)
A rendezvous will prove difficult considering we are being pursued, and they appear to be armed.

KITT brings up his rear camera on the large screen in FBI headquarters.

CARRIE
KITT can you loose them?

KITT (O.S.)
I have not been able. According to my calculations the only way to loose them effectively in order to
rendezvous with the helicopter would be to kill those following us. I of course am unable to go against my
programming and therefore can do no harm to human life.

DYLAN
(Whispering.) Just keep trying KITT.

Carrie sits down at her own computer and pushes a button which brings up Charles on her screen.

CARRIE
(Taking to the cargo plane) The rescue helicopter is over them now, but it can’t land.

INT CARGO JET

CHARLES
KITT is there anything you can think of to do?

KITT (O.S)
While chances of Mike’s survival at this point are slim. My programming indicates that I must keep trying. To continue shocking at this voltage will drain my power supply completely in less than twenty minutes. At that time I will be forced to shut down my systems and render my self vulnerable to our attackers.

CARRIE (O.S. in computer monitor)
Shall we have KITT abort and save himself?

SARAH
No! He’ll be okay! The drug went in right?... Right?

Sarah looks at her father and then sits back down at her own desk putting her face up to her computer screen still showing the inside of the car.

SARAH
Come on Mike!

INT FBI HEADQUARTERS

Carrie and Dylan exchange worried looks.

INT KITT DAY

Another shock hits Mike and he flinches awake.

MIKE
Ouch! Knock it off!

Mike screams angrily at the car.

INT CARGO JET

SARAH
Mike!

Sarah’s eyes well up with tears.

INT KITT DAY

KITT
I am sorry Mike but in this situation pain was an unavoidable outcome.

MIKE
(Groans) Uhh, where are we.

KITT
I’m afraid our situation in grim Mike. There is a helicopter above us that is ready to assist you but I am
afraid that it cannot land due to the presence of a hostile force behind us. I furthermore calculate that I
only have twenty two minutes of power remaining.

MIKE
(Smiles groggily.) You’re stuck aren’t you buddy?

KITT
Yes, I am unable to calculate a way out of this situation.

MIKE
Need some help don’t ya? …..That’s what I thought.

MIKE weakly reaches over the center console with his foot and slams on the break forcing the SUV behind to slam into them. MIKE fades back into unconsciousness as the helicopter lands in front of them and the paramedics rush to his aid.


The end? Or is it? If you want to know what happens next let me know.

Typically if a person is already in fibrilation they won't be able to mess with a defibrilator or injections. Sorry to be a nitpicky brod...
But that's a pretty good plot, I'd like to see more.

Hm... it's good, but it's also a lot like the latest James Bond movie. You know, the part when he also got poisoned.

As for continuing the story, if you have a good idea, keep going! I think it stands fairly well on its own, though.

You guys are cool! Thanks for the advice. As promised here is some more.


ACT 2

FADE IN:

INT HOSPITAL DAY

Mike is lying in a hospital bed on a ventilator. Sarah and Charles Graiman sit by his side as a doctor is explaining his condition. Two FBI agents listen in as they guard the doorway.

DOCTOR
It’s hard to say right now if his organs will be able to recover from the damage they sustained from the poison. We’re just going to have to wait and see.

CHARLES
Thank you.

The Doctor leaves. Sarah sighs and reaches for Mikes hand and gently holds it. The two FBI agents stand restlessly alert in the doorway.

FBI AGENT 1
Damnit! And this is one damn hard location to secure. I really don’t like you two staying here with him.

FBI AGENT 2
I agree, in this type of situation we need to focus on protecting our assets.

SARAH
What are you saying? That Mike’s not an asset?

FBI AGENT 2
Mike is expendable, he’s just the muscle. Your brains are not. Not when you are considering our national security.

SARAH
You’re really something else; this is a human being you’re talking about here!


Charles puts a hand on his daughter’s shoulder and turns her away from the door.

CHARLES
It’s okay Sarah, just ignore them. They’re just here to do a job.

Sarah closes her eyes and takes a deep breath. The FBI agents move out into the hall. Mike’s eyes roll and he moves his mouth around the tube in his throat. Sarah tenses, still holding his hand.

SARAH
Mike?

Charles gives his daughter a squeeze and looks on patiently. Mike doesn’t move. A FBI agent steps back into the room.

FBI AGENT 1
Come on, we have to move.

SARAH
What? Why?

FBI AGENT 1
There are two men asking downstairs for Mike’s room number. I have a bad feeling and I don’t want you in this room.

Charles looks at Mike a moment and then at the FBI agent.

CHARLES
Alright we’ll leave. What about Mike?

FBI AGENT 1
Stevenson here will watch him.

The agent indicates his counterpart who is on alert at the door. Sarah and Charles walk out of the room escorted by the first agent. He alertly surreys the hospital corridors and directs them into an empty room. Just as he closes the door two men walk past holding their hands suspiciously in their jackets.

INT HOSPITAL ROOM WITH GRAIMANS

Gunshots are heard echoing from somewhere down the hall. Sarah puts her hand to her mouth holding back a scream.

SARAH
(Whispering.) Mike!

Charles holds his daughter protectively as the FBI agent guards the door. Suddenly the two men force there way in. The agent fires his gun but misses. The two men return fire and the FBI agent falls dead. Sarah screams.

BAD GUY 1
You don’t have anyone to defend you now Mr. Graiman. Mike Traceur is dead. And I made sure of it myself this time. So just come along quietly won’t we?

Sarah shakes her head in disbelief; tears well up in her eyes.

CHARLES
Let her go. I’m the one you want.

BAD GUY 1
Oh I don’t think so. She’s coming with us too.

FADE OUT

ACT 3

FADE IN:

(FLASH BACK) INT MIKE’S HOSPITAL ROOM

Agent Stevenson moves to a defensive position near the door, his gun at the ready. Mike’s eyes crack open; he flinches and pulls the tube out of his throat. Agent Stevenson glances at him still pointing his gun towards the door.

INT HOSPITAL HALL

A nurse approaches the two men as they near the hallway near Mike’s room.

NURSE
Excuse me it is past visiting hours.

INT MIKE’S HOSPITAL ROOM

Angry voices echo in from the hallway. Mike attempts to pull himself out of bed but sinks to the floor. Crawling on his hands he reaches for the bag that contains his belongings and takes out KITT’s earpiece. Agent Stevenson looks at him, then coming to a quick decision he walks over and takes off Mike’s hospital gown.

FBI AGENT 2
Here, quick, change clothes.

The sound of a gunshot comes from the hallway. The FBI agent jumps up on a chair and opens a ceiling vent.


FBI AGENT 2
Come on, you gotta get out of site.

Reaching down he grabs Mike’s arm and helps him up into the ceiling.

FBI AGENT 2
Here, I have an extra gun, take it.

The agent hands Mike the gun and closes the vent. He slips into the hospital bed only a moment before the two men force their way into the room. The men open fire and the agent, not yet ready with his gun, did not stand a chance. The men glance around the room, and then satisfied their job is done return to the hallway.

BAD GUY 1
The father and daughter are here, check all the rooms.

His associate nods and points his gun in to room after room. Nurses and patients scream and run out of the way.

INT AIR VENT

Mike slides along the vent weakly. He presses KITT’s earpiece into his ear.

MIKE
KITT where are you?

KITT
Mike I am in the hospital parking lot. I am attempting to plan a route that will bring me closer to you but navigating inside of a hospital building will prove a challenge.

MIKE
(In disbelief.) You think you can get inside?

KITT
I will do my best to assist you Mike. Sarah and Charles are in danger and I must attempt to save their lives. But first I will direct you to a location where I can safely pick you up.

MIKE
You know where they are?

KITT
Yes, I am receiving feed from a security camera in the hallway near their room. There are two men holding them at gunpoint.

MIKE
Can you map out this air vent? Tell me how to get to them.

KITT
While I do have access to the hospital’s schematics, I do not recommend you attempt a rescue in your condition.

MIKE
Thanks for the advice, now which way to their room?

INT HOSPITAL ROOM WITH GRAIMANS

Sarah sobs uncontrollably and backs into the corner of the room.

SARAH
No, No, No, it can’t be true!

The armed man levels his gun at Charles’ head and cocks it.

BAD GUY 1
Oh it’s true, and your father will be next if you don’t come along quietly.

A gun shot rings out in the room. Sarah screams. Charles blinks and investigates himself to find he is unharmed. One of the armed men lies dead on the floor; the other fires blindly at the ceiling and then stops breathing heavily.

SARAH
(Under her breath.) What was that? What just happened?

CHARLES
I don’t know, maybe it was Stevenson, maybe he got away.

BAD GUY 2
We’re leaving.

The armed man pushes the two into the hallway with his gun to their backs. Nurses and patients back up against the walls in fright and peek cautiously from behind desks. Suddenly the elevator dings and a black mustang pulls out halfway into the hall but is stopped by a wall.

CHARLES
Run! Get in!

The two break free and run towards KITT. The armed man takes aim with his gun. A gun shot rings out and a blurred shape drops from the ceiling and grabs for the roof of the car. Mike steadies himself using KITT’s roof to aim his gun. But he doesn’t have to; his first shot hit its mark. Doctors and nurses stair in awe at Mike who is struggling to stay up right against the car. Charles and Sarah are stopped dead in their tracks staring in disbelief.

MIKE
Oh I’m sorry, do I make this look easy? Get in the car!

CHARLES
Oh, right.

They both move to get in, Mike slumps down into the drivers seat.

SARAH
Oh my God Mike!

KITT backs back into the elevator and the doors close on the faces of several surprised hospital workers. The elevator doors open again into the lobby and KITT drives out through the large lobby doors. Mike reaches for an air vent through which KITT is pumping out pure oxygen and adjusts it to point at his face. He breathes exhaustedly. KITT pulls out in front of the hospital.

MIKE
Wait! I’m driving.

SARAH
Mike for goodness sake! Let KITT drive!

Mike takes the controls and backs up into an idling car easily putting it out of commission. Two suspicious men run back towards their wrecked and smoking vehicle and pound on it in frustration.

MIKE
Okay, all yours.

Mike sits back and lets KITT take the wheel. Dylan pops up on KITT’s screen.

DYLAN
(Sympathetically) Hey Mike what’s the plan?

MIKE
We're headed back to the cargo jet, we're coming home.

DYLAN
Okay Mike, see ya soon.

...YOU are the ULTIMATE drama writer.

The suspense was killer...literally. You really had the reader hooked at the 'I made sure of it' part.

The radio plays softly overhead in the quiet hallway while doctors and nurses do their jobs, the elevator gives a polite ding and out pops a GT500, engine revving. HA! LOVE IT!

5 of 5!

Here is a link to what is hopefully a better version of this screenplay. There are some new little bits up already and if I do add more the changes will appear on this site.
Here we go, hope this works.

Now I know as soon as that edit button goes away I’m gonna see 100 things wrong, but here it goes anyway.


KITTNAPPED


TEASER

INT. FBI HEADQUARTERS – DAY

Agent CARRIE RAVAI enters the conference room sadly. She looks at CHARLES GRAIMAN and then at MIKE TRACEUR.

CARRIE
I’m afraid I have some bad news.

MIKE
Your news is always bad Carrie, that’s what keeps us in business.

CARRIE
Yes but this is personal. … As you know after we relocated Charles here most of his old projects were moved to what we believed to be a secure location.

CHARLES
Uh-oh, I don’t like where you are going with this one.

CARRIE
Yes I’m afraid it was broken into. Everything was taken.

CHARLES
Everything?

CARRIE
Yes I’m afraid so.

CHARLES
Even… The car?

CARRIE
Yes… Even KITT.

MIKE
What? You mean the first KITT?

CHARLES
He has been deactivated for quite sometime but there still could be information on his hard drives that we wouldn’t want to get out. Not to mention some of his technology is not completely obsolete.

CARRIE
If we brought in outside help on this one it would be all over the media. We need to keep this low key, destroy the compromised information, make it look like an accident.

MIKE
What do you mean? Blow up the place where they took all this stuff?

CARRIE
Yes, it is old information, I’m sorry Charles I know it will be some loss, but it was nothing that you were working on currently, and we can do without it. We just can’t let it get into the wrong hands.

MIKE
What blow up the car?

CARRIE
He hasn’t been functioning in years. Obviously no one had the intention of repairing him.

MIKE
Well but... Yeah but…

Mike looks at Charles for some support.

CHARLES
It’s my fault. I put him to the side for too long. Nothing can be done about that now.

Charles looks back into Mike’s eyes apologetically and then looks away.

CHARLES (CONT’D.)
…We’ll sure need some strong explosive.

CARRIE
If you’re not comfortable doing it…

MIKE
No! I want to be the one.

CARRIE
Alright.



INT. CARGO JET – EARLY MORNING

Charles talks with Mike over his secure web cam.

CHARLES
Mike I’m sorry about this. I know you don’t want to do it… I know…this will be hard on your father.

MIKE
(Holding in emotion.) I’ll leave KITT’s front camera on so you’ll know when it’s done.

Charles nods and Mike presses an onscreen button that switches Charles’s view to KITT’s front camera.

The camera records as Mike slips into the warehouse. After a pause gunfire is heard. Charles straightens up and looks at his monitor intently. The Mustang continues to record as it bursts through the metal warehouse doors and skids to a stop inside the building. Gunfire whizzes past KITT’s camera. KITT zooms in on a forlorn Trans Am as a blinking bomb slides across the floor and comes to rest under its body. The Mustang revs its engine, speeds through the demolished door and exits the building, a cloud of dust and debris briefly envelopes KITT’s camera as he speeds down the road and away from the blast.

Mike pops back up on Charles’ monitor.

MIKE
Okay Charles, it’s done.



ACT 1


EXT. DESERT HIGHWAY – SUNSET

MICHAEL KNIGHT wearily holds the steering wheel of an old 1990 Chevy pickup truck as it rattles along the dusty desert highway.

His cell phone rings and he picks up the earpiece and places it in his ear.

MICHAEL
Yup?

CHARLES
Michael, it’s Charles, I have some bad news, are you free to talk?

MICHAEL
Is it Mike?

CHARLES
No, No. Mikes okay… It’s KITT, your KITT I mean.

MICHAEL
I thought he was in pieces in your garage.

CHARLES
Yes, well, he was stolen. It wasn’t possible to recover him. We had to take him out.

MICHAEL
You mean destroy him?

CHARLES
Yes… The things that he knew… they couldn’t fall into the wrong hands.

MICHAEL
(Holding back emotion.) I see

CHARLES
I’m sorry… It was done this morning.

MICHAEL
Who?... Was it Mike?

CHARLES
Yes Mike did it. He didn’t want to but there was nothing else he could have done.

MICHAEL
I understand.

CHARLES
I’m sorry.

Michael clicks off his cell phone and stairs down the dusty highway, tears filling his eyes. Up ahead, through bleary eyes he spots a dark car broken down on the shoulder. It draws his attention as he nears it. He sucks in a breath. It’s a Trans Am, abandoned by some owner to the sun scorched highway.

He starts crying openly, barely driving straight. He pulls over to the shoulder and breaks down in tears. Finally he lifts his head up and wipes his nose on the back of his hand. As he does a red light in his rearview mirror catches his eye. He turns in his seat. KITT’s headlights pop up excitedly on either side of his red scanner.

MICHAEL
KITT!

Michael fumbles with the door and rushes out.

MICHAEL
KITT! What happened? How did you get here?

KITT 2000
Michael I am glad to see you. I cannot be sure of anything myself anymore. Nothing makes any sense and I am finding many of my systems inoperable.

MICHAEL
It’s okay buddy, I’ll help you figure it out. Tell me what you do know, we’ll start from there.

KITT
Get in Michael and I will show you what I know.

KITT opens his door invitingly. Michael pauses and smiles and then gets in, KITT brings up video on one of his monitors.

Lines flicker across the screen indicating the first recordings from when his computer came back on line.

(FLASH BACK) INT. WAREHOUSE – EARLY MORNING

Mike slides in through a large metal warehouse door that is slightly ajar. He turns and looks back through the door at his KITT who purrs his engine softly and inches close to the side of the building. Sliding down behind a stack of shipping pallets, Mike surveys the inside of the building. A gunman’s shoes clink overhead on a catwalk. Mike tucks his head down. The gunman aims his automatic rifle around the floor below, then satisfied moves on.

Mike spots his target across the room draped in sailcloth; the figure of a Trans Am. He moves forward purposefully; ducking under the cloth by the driver’s side door a split second before the gunman above turns his weapon Mike’s way. The gunman studies the draped cloth thoughtfully and then moves on.

Mike pulls the door handle. The computerless machine complies. Mike slips into the driver’s seat and studies the array of buttons thoughtfully.

MIKE
Hmmm, how quaint. Now where is the power button… Don’t tell me I need a key for this thing.

Mike finds the hidden button and presses it. The computer whirrs to life with a bit of a hum.

MIKE
Hello KITT. Welcome to the twenty first century.

The computer makes a defiant beep and suddenly Mike finds himself flying though the air inside of the sail cloth. He lands with the cloth in tangles around him.

MIKE
What the hell was that?!

The gunman above starts firing at the moving lump in the cloth. A Mustang comes crashing in through the metal door and slides to a stop between Mike and the gunman’s fire. Mike kicks off the cloth and jumps into his car. With a quick motion he pulls the pin on the bomb in his hand and tosses it underneath the Trans Am.

MIKE
I’m sorry! I’m on your side believe me! Don’t go looking for FLAG they are not there anymore. This is 2008 KITT! If you need to find Michael Knight, he’s in Arizona!

Mike slams the door and he and his Mustang take off, the Trans Am follows as the building blows up behind them.

KITT 2000 records from his front camera as he struggles to keep up with the Mustang who quickly disappears on the road ahead of him. He attempts to pull up a map on his screen but is unable, his modem squeals sadly as it attempts to acquire a signal.

INT. KITT 2000 – SUNSET

MICHAEL
Do you know who that was KITT?

KITT 2000
No. When I first came online I realized that there was a stranger in my driver’s seat. As my programming dictates I am to use all means necessary to prevent a stranger from learning too much about my technology. I could not have foreseen the complexity of the situation at the time I made the choice to eject him from my cabin. I would never have willingly placed a human in harms way.

MICHAEL
That was my son.

KITT
I am sorry Michael that I have made so many poor choices. My programming appears to be quite outdated. I can see that it was a logical choice to deactivate me. I am glad that no harm came to your son because of me. I will do my best to update my files with this new information.

MICHAEL
Don’t be so hard on yourself. You did a good job finding me.

KITT 2000
It’s most embarrassing Michael, I ran out of gas.

MICAHEL
It’s okay Buddy, it happens to the best of us. You won’t object to a little tow home will you?

KITT
A tow Michael? Really I don’t think things can get much worse.

(Ah but they do.. If you want more let me know. I’ve got some good stuff in my head. )

I MUST FEAST UPON THE REST OF THIS GLORIOUS STORY THAT IS PART OF A BALANCED BREAKFAST OF KNOWLEDGE!!! THE KNIGHT 2007 DEMANDS MORE!!!

You should have Michael install Kitt into a KITT-X. :kittx:

Wow! that was amazing! you really know how to keep the stroy going! i can not wait to see the rest of the plot.

I too am working on more than one fanfic but unfortuanatly they will not be ready for quite sometime. I' m sort of attempting a novel like idea of a original KR fanfic but getting some great ideas for K2008. This is quite inspiring!

Excellent work! :D

GarthKnight08 -What Kitt needs- wrote:T-tops? Convertable? There should be a original KITT rehab or something like AA or it would be called KA for all the people who are going through withdrawl for the old KITT lol


Garth, I think I need some of that rehab. Hello my name is Sue, I’m a KI2000aholic.
...If I write a turbo boost into this story I will never forgive myself.

Yeah, it's that simple.

I’ve finally gotten off my YouTube kick and have gotten back to my episode called Jumpstart. So in case you were wondering how it was Mike got himself poisoned and who those bad guys were, here it is. You will find it at the same link. Follow it to “Jumpstart.”
More will be coming soon.

http://cid-d49efa5da4cd8adb.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/Writings

Here also is the news story that inspired it.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/7359514.stm

And yes, perhaps this should be over in creative, but it’s been here for months now with no complaint. And anyway, we won't have any real new episodes till September. Hope you enjoy. Feedback is always appreciated.
