WOOOT! My 1,000th post! :twisted: :mrgreen:

Yeah, there's no reason they couldn't "fix up" WD's voice with a little studio magic. Benchwarmers was pretty lazily done and Mio I thought was still in the process of tweaking things when we got that preview of the early version.

If you guys didn't know or looked, Rebecca Holden does have an official site and is still working. She looks pretty different to me but it might just be the fact that it's been about 25 years or that and she's had a bit of work done, as impolite as that might be to say.


Look through here, you should see her with an old friend. :wink:

http://www.rebeccaholden.com/200712Webs ... Events.htm

I'm sure someone knows what event that was from.

I dunno why GST is having any sort of a hard time finding any of the old cast, we know what the ones that are still alive are doing, certainly NBC and their resources could contact them, it shouldn't be too hard and I'm sure Patricia McPherson would come back, even it it required a bit of motivation, be it financial and/or promotional to her cause.

I'd hope they'd pick up where they left off in "Scent of the Roses" -- the true
finale for the original series. They might even consider a flashback sequence....

I know RC3 (Peter Parros) is still acting. Maybe he can make a guest appearance.



Something I certainly agree with, the show would have went out on a much higher note if NBC wouldn't have demanded that episode be aired during sweeps instead of held off until the season/series finale like it was intended. Personally I'd have no problem with the writers moving things around a bit just so it would be the last time we saw Michael and KITT.

I'd also like to see an occasional character from an episode or two show up if KITT and Mike are in an area where an episode of the original show took place in a small cameo or just a little Easter egg sort of thing that just us nerds would notice and pick up on. Small stuff like that can be just as enjoyable sometimes more so since it'd just be something for us in the sense that we'd be the only ones award of the connection, unlike things that would be the focus of the story that's for pretty much everyone.

Damn, I'm still impressed with Rebecca Holden.... After all these years.
By 1980's standards, she was a stunner.

I realize most fans preferred the Bonnie character -- the character was written better.
But in my opinion, Rebecca Holden did trump Patricia in sheer "hotness."

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
There ain't no E in Garth, damn it.

Congrats on 1,000! :)

I liked both Bonnie and April actually. But then again, my favorite in the show was always KITT (and KARR when he was in 3rd season). :)

Perhaps if they incorporated a little bit of Patricia's real life into the character she may consider. After FLAG went belly up, Bonnie ended her career as an engineer (or she could have worked somewhere else for a while, perhaps a university?) then became somewhat of a recluse, devoting the rest of her life to the wetlands. At first it would seem odd that someone that was so good and facinated with machines would become a naturalist, but perhaps they could add some story to it, like she spent many days there as a child or whatever. It would be great PR for her cause, like you mentioned. And the part could be small. Mike finds her house. He tries to aske her for some info, but as soon as he mentions the Foundation or the KITT, she slams the door in his face. Finally after a couple a repeat vists she decides to help out.

It's just a thought. :)

Wow, I think you've hit the nail on the head. Patricia does not strike me as the type that would just come back because of a big paycheck (but that could be my own naïveté) unless she'd devote a lot of it to her cause. But I think that's the perfect way to try and persuade her to return. A lot of actors' own personalities and talents are mixed in with their characters (Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer, Scott Bakula as Sam Beckett, etc.). And it would be an excellent way to promote her cause indirectly.

Well, that's actually the reason Rebecca was initially hired in the first place. The producers were looking for someone with a more blatantly glamorous look. (Not to necessarily say one is hotter than the other; they simply had different looks.)

Knowing what Patricia McPherson is doing these days sure gives interesting point of view watching Bonnie explain about the video they had about Acid John Byrock's disposal site in Junk Yard Dog :)
Maybe if the new series will have similar environmental themed episode, she might be willing to guest star?

Another possible scenerio could be that Bonnie was working for some company after FLAG, only to discover that they were dumping their waste illegally into the wetlands, or just generally into a natural setting. It made people sick, killed off wildlife and this just sickened her. So she turns her back on technology/industry and becomes an enviornmentalist. This could also play into her initial hesitation to help Mike.

I like the idea of Bonnie incorporating her passion of the wetlands and that could be a good story to bring her back in the show. They could have her decide with technology she once had worked with or to keep her dream and stay with preserving wetlands and MK could try and bring her back!

Maybe Michael Knight could beg her to come back so she could build a new flying soccer ball with antennas.

So it has been just about a week since the announcement made by GST about Hasselhoff talking with NBC this week, I wonder if they had the meeting all ready and hopefully some news will emerge on his return as well with KI2T!!!!! :D

Maybe it's because I'm in a bad mood and am suffering from a major lack of sleep but will you get off it already?! We've been over this a hundred ****ing times and you're beyond a broken record now, Hasslehoff could not carry this show and William Daniels wouldn't come back full time to do it, you're like a five year old who can't take "no" for an answer. If you honestly think doing that would make the show last beyond even a handful of episodes then it's a damn good thing you're not in charge. Why don't you go to the KR feature film board and bitch on how the reboot/revamp won't feature Hasslehoff nor the "original KITT" AT ALL!

Talk about a sure fire way to kill the new series.

Putting a 56 year old in the lead role along with a 26 year old car that has the voice of an 81 year old, who is, in all likelihood, quiet happily retired, is just a monumentally idiotic idea. Sure, everyone here will love it, but NBC would cancel it before the second episode even hit the airwaves due to it having nothing that appeals to, and captures the hearts of, a new generation of fans.

The fact that you refuse to accept the reality of the situation, and continue to push a point that has no real merit beyond that of nostalgia, is truly dumbfounding.

This is the second thread I read in 5 minutes with basically the same post from you crying about this again. If we're lucky Hoff and KITT will cameo in the new series, that's it, get over it now. We know where you're coming from but stop beating us over the head with it already...kthxbye

We clearly have a troll in our midst, one that is clearly stuck in the past. We have fed it
more than enough. It is perhaps time to cut off the supply, and ignore it completely.

Eventually ... it might go and crawl back under a pile of discarded Trans-Am tyres . . .

Why can't some people on this forum stop being little kids who can't take no for an answer?I'm annoyed of reading annoying posts like "Why we can't use the original cast",for example.We've been through this more than a hundred,or maybe even more times.Knight Rider 2008 is made for a newer generation.There will be things that fans of the original series will like too...We asked GST for Turbo Boosts and we got it.You're all old enough to know that we can't get everything we want.Remember:This is the year 2008 and not 1982.Of course the original cast will come back occasionally,but we can't put them as a permanent cast.If I wrote the reasons why,I'd start sounding like a broken record,which I have a feeling that I might be.
