Whooo, just finished watching the new 'Knight Rider'. Right off the bat (and I mean in the first 5 min), we see the F150 KITT show up. I love the vehicle morphing, but I'd like it better if KITT shifted into vehicles of equal size. Nit-picky, but that's just my opinion. Anyway, I LOVED this episode!
It may be my favorite one yet, in terms of just plain, good ole' fashioned fun. See Mike infiltrate rogue militia. See Mike get smacked around by sexy female militia member. Oooh, see Mike cut himself to retrieve his earpiece. I mean, I could see half the beats of the episode coming, but I just didn't care. And of course, something for all the haters to glom onto, Mike gets hottie militia babe (who's really one of the good guys) to disrobe because hypothermia kills, kids. It also leads the hero's love interest to develop ideas when watching it on satellite surveillance.
Seriously, my favorite part of this episode: Mike's line when confronting the militia members, "Oh man, you really shouldn't have said that"
, followed by KITT popping his 007-like missile launchers and taking out the Humvee. My only real quibble: if KITT's morphing has to be kept secret, wasn't it a big breach of protocol to do it so openly?? The 2 sub-plots were a lil' hit and miss. Sarah's birthday was interesting (how does one have a birthday when working for a clandestine quasi-governmental outfit like Knight Industries), but Billy getting beat (by both a bully and Zoe) was weak sauce. Just saying. In the end, where KITT plays Sarah the audio from the earlier surveillance and then Mike surprises her in the command center, gold. Pure, 100% cheesy gold. And why not? A little romance never hurts.
"Knight of the Hunter" ----> a solid 4 'Turbo Boosts' out of 5!!
