I found it hilarious the three of them trying to squeeze into attack KITT, I guess that answers our question about no back seat.

I think we are all gravitating towards the first two as favorites because of the fact that those two episodes were more action focus, and this one wasn't. Short of the Rockets, the episode as a whole was more character/plot driven then the last two combine - that's a good thing though, you need that balance. I'm on the 'I don't like Zoe' bandwagon, however she grew on me last night. All we had heard before last night was those silly one liners, but last night we were able to look at her character a bit deeper, and it helped. It also helped too that the people at KR seem to be in the same boat (no pun intended) as us - that she's waaaay to quirky.
Another moment I liked was KITT being shot over with a missile. I wish they showed more of him falling off the cliff after the break, it seemed too clean, I would have liked to see Mike being jostled and KITT having to check his systems. But being blown off a mountain top like that was a fun idea.
In general as a series, we need a Mike and KITT episode alone. That was the core of Knight Rider, this should be the core of this one as well. The time last night where Mike and KITT were together in the car at night, I really enjoyed that. We need to see them on missions together, without a sidekick. Right now alot of time is being dedicated to growing the relationships, but there are just too many - and the fact Carrie hasn't been in the last two episodes is a sign of this - it feels like they don't know what to do with everyone. We haven't had a lot of 1-on-1 interaction. Also, this is the 2nd time tonight when KITT left Michael when he could have used him the most. In the original, KITT never ran, he would run to Michael when he needed help ("KITT, I need ya buddy!")
For the VFX guys - I loved the HUD tonight, looks like you found your groove with that. The VM looked like it had a slight boost again, as the eye wasn't as overpowering as it had been cause the Voice lines were more apparent. I thought too that the green screen did seem better, cept for the part where Michael spun around the corner.
Can you guys add bullet spark effects to KITT when he is getting shot at? You're telling me 4 guys with machine guns are firing at KITT and we don't see any visible confirmation of hits? I think it would help sell the realism of KITT being protected in that respect.
What can we do to see KITT drive himself for a little bit, with no one inside? Would LOVE that.
Also, anyone notice that when the doors of KITT open, there is like a decompressed air sound? It helps sell that KITTs cabin is a capsule - it's a nice touch.
Finally, I got a little hung up about the backseat issue in Attack KITT - you're telling me he can't change the lab back to seats if he needed to? Say in the scene where they were driving to the beach with all them in the car (another fun scene) and something happened where they needed to transform into Attack mode - do they have to leave the two passengers on the side of the road? It doesn't make sense...
