Yeah this time his plate had KR on it.


I saw a part towards the end where it said something else, possibly KNIGHT, not sure.

if you've taken the time to notice, all of those plates have had KR in the middle....

The only plate I caught site of I thought was on the van that had crashed, it said government on it. If it was KI3T's, that would be a pretty dead giveaway when going undercover.

I spent more time paying attention to the chatroom than I did the show. =\ But I did like some parts and really didn't dislike anything though I just know there's going to be complaining about the "sex crap" by the uber uptight people due two certain scenes.

I also agree it was a ok episode other then the fact it could have had a better action sequence toward the end. I also like the covering of the bomb very tos. Billy and Zoe just need to get a room and get it over with. Same with Mike and Sarah

Ofcourse I also liked the double-team shooting out the tires of KITT and Mike. That and the old-school bomb smothering were probably my two favorite moments this week, the bomb smothering being the best because they did a fantastic huge explosion and KITT being completely unharmed was a great reminder of how tough the car is.

Decent episode, the actual mission worked well and the Mike/KITT interaction was still good though didn't actually do anything to move it forward like the last few have, the team shot was about on par with where they've gotten the partnership so far. They should have trimmed the second Mike and Sarah crush scene in the first 15 minutes of the episode to get to the meat of the story a little faster, the first one did the job well enough.

Well, then i won't say anything about the "Sex scenes", even though they still annoy me- this episode wasn't half bad- Sarah can now add "Surgeon" to her list of talents (Is there NOTHING this girl can't do?) and Billy and Zoe I'm starting to warm up to. I can sort of see them working out in the revamp a bit more, but Charles and Carrie are sure getting the short shift on this show. And the cryptic line "You don't know who you're working for, do you?" Makes me wonder exactly HOW much Charles knows. I can't figure the guy out.And with all these bon mots being dumped in their laps on a weekly basis, WHY aren't Mike and Sarah asking more questions? Oh, and I liked seeing the game room, and Mike's quarters.
KITT: I walked right into that one, didn't I?
Michael: More like Turbo Boosted.

First 15-20 minutes was Mike and Sarah riding in KITT and Zoe and Billy screwing around in the Cave watching Mike and Sarah. Not enough action and too much sex crap. Its time to push aside the nonsense and have more action.

We need to have better chase sequences too. The camera angles are horrible and hardly shows how fast KITT travels. I hope things get better though because I do like the show.

the only thing is the lack of vehicular action. The tire shoot out was a perfect opportunity for a Turbo Boost, and alas, none. The only 2 Turbo Boosts to date have been done just to do them, no reason. And there has been 3-5 scenarios where it should have been used (Season wide, not in this show alone :good: )

I thought that they have taken their first steps towards getting back to TOS with this episode, and even though I agree that they do need a little more action scenes for KITT, I really think the focus being more on Mike and KITT is only going to get stronger with each episode before and after the cast changes. I knew they were not going to reference KARR in tonights episode, they have given us all something to ponder on until the episode when they bring him back on screen! I thought all in all it was another solid episode and I can not wait for next week! :good:

Yeah the Ford tractor shot when they came back. For a second I really thought Kitt had transformed into a Ford tractor. I mean he's changed into everything else Ford related. :roll:

Folks we got a great show on our hands here. Aside from too much soap opera on Mike and Sarah, how about A WOW FACTOR ENDING TO ONE OF THESE EPISODES??!!??

Wouldnt it have been better to see KITT turbo boost over the villan car and have the dodge stratus slam on its brakes so it didnt hit KITT only because agent ravie (or whatever her name is) doesnt get killed. Then have Mike and Sarah kick the crap out of the villians. That would have been a lot more exciting then what I just saw.

Folks im not a tv producer but that is how I would have ended this one!!

I actually thought that's what they were going to do when Mike kept offering suggestions but they were too dangerous. That said, I do like the ultimate solution because it involved KITT and Mike working together in tandem - true teamwork, which is symbolic of what needs to be at the core of the series.

I have to say I think they dropped the ball on this episode. There was way too much unneeded chatting going on for one thing. The actual bad guys plot seemed tacked on with the episode really just focusing on the Mike and Sarah relationship, which I find painful to watch.

The previews led us to believe that the bad guys were planning to steal KITT. I thought this was going to be tied into last weeks episode because Billy said "She downloaded everything we have on KITT." Instead not only was that line not even in the episode, the bad guys were never even a remote threat. I didn't care about them, or really anything that was going on in this episode. I kept waiting for the stakes to go up, and nothing happened.The episode just kind of fizzled out for me.

Come on writers, give us some meat. I understand wanting to keep the episodes mostly stand alone, but there needs to be a better over arching plot as well so that we actually care. You could kill off almost any character on this show and I'd feel almost nothing. :(

Side note: I'm looking forward to the "reboot" and I hope they've really put some better thought into what this show is going to be going forward. There has been some good episodes, but it's time to get serious if Knight Rider is going to make it into season 2.

Surprised no one mentioned one other thing......

For the second consecutive episode, we have a SECURITY breach. For a high level and I assume very "top secret" organization, they've had an impostor break in and now a US government official's daughter hacks their systems in a matter of minutes.

The guys have to do better with their security. If this were real life, lots of people would get canned for these security breaches.

I'm gonna go along with zero on this one. He's right, nothing happened. The Mike & Sarah stuff JUST DOESN"T WORK. Yes, it was kind of cool having KITT drive over a bomb again, but that should be the minor stunt leading up to a big finale.

This may have been my least favorite episode to date. Possibly worse than Knight of the Iguana (surfing.)

Post by Tony P Knight Driver » Thu Nov 13, 2008 12:48 am

I Wanna Rock & Roll All Knight is the second time someone has said to Micheal "you don't know who you work for"

Combine that with Dr.Graimens comment tonight "maybe we are the ones in a hot car blowing stuff up" and past comments like "one day mikes going to remember and then hes going to come after you" could lead to the "Reboot". Perhaps Micheal and KITT find out who they work for isnt the government or FLAG, and expose the whole operation. Leaving them to return to the roots of the show?

I dunno what do you think?

WOW.... usually I can find a few or more major redeeming qualities about a KR episode. I even liked Knight of the Iguana... but this episode was TRASH.

Every element was either a missed opportunity, another frying pan over the head about Mike and Sarah, or something completely stupid (like teaching a car about Sex).

Though I finally got why no one likes Sarah on missions. Has little to do with taking away the mike/kitt one on one time. It's got more to do with her taking KITT's roll as "partner".

Billy apparently caught it before it went live, but made a dummy program to make it look like it did.

This one is a pretty close tie with Iguana for the worst episode for me. It was very slow paced the whole way through and like Iguana way to immature. I mean I like the sexual tension but not grade school sexual tension. Mulder and Scully kept that kinda thing going for years and it worked great but they didn't have Zoe and Billy giggling and giving commentary on it. Ah well I had a feeling I wasn't gonna like this one from the commercial. I wonder if this kinda thing sells well in the demographic they are looking for.
At least there are some I like and some I don't it keeps me tuning in. You can't win them all.
