No I'm not kidding you.
I love this show. It grabs my attention, i love the writing, the actors are doing a great job, the CGI effects are amaing with the money and time contraints they have, and I think GTS really gets what this show needs to be. We're not in the 80s anymore, things change.
If you are 22, you weren't even around when the original was on. Watching repeats of a show before your time doesn't qualify you to bash the original. If you had watched the original series when if had first aired, you would have understood how groundbreaking this show was at the time. Everything was so cool and original with things you hadn't seen before.
Oh wow, I didnt see it in it's original run because I wasnt alive. You're using that against me? Wow.
Sorry if I was born 11 days after the last episode aired. I guess that means I cant be a fan of it. I guess I cant watch ST:TOS or 60s Batman or Get Smart or anything before 86.
And, if you must know. My grandmother was a huge fan of the show before she died. She actually watched the original run. My first memories are of me and my grandmother watching the episodes show taped, which she taped all of them. "KITT," from what my mom has said, was the 3rd word I said cause the show was always on the TV. KR:TOS will always hold a special place in my heart cause it reminds me of my granny.
And when did I bash the show? Please for the love of KI3T quote my "bash" and put it here so I can see it.
When I click submit I will have 6 replys in this thread, and none of those bash the show. I even just went back through and checked.
What is original about KR08?.
What's original about most things on TV these days. Most of everything's already been done. It's hard to be original now.
KR08 takes little things from things that came before it. Big deal, everyone does that.
Don't get me wrong, I want the show to succeed, but it is nowhere near the kind of show the original was when it aired in the early 80's. The new show is more like 50% of it's potential and the dropping ratings would argue my point. They have a lot to change about this show which is why they are cutting cast and changing directions
Neither was the original. It took time to build up and get better. The concept was great for it's time, but the production was filled with all sorts of 80s problems. Although there was no CGI like we have now in the 80s, and people complain about the green sqeen effects for KR08, sometimes the practical effects and stunts in the 80s weren't completely perfect either. New shows dont really get alot of money at the begining, and must work with what they have.
Plus I'm sure GST wrote out the top 3 paid actors on the show so they could do more practical stunts and better effects. I bet the whole "reboot" (which i'm sure isnt, i had theorys all along they were gonna kill off the ssc somehow) is just GST's way of getting the show more money.
And ratings are dropping all over the place on TV, plus look at what we've been up against lately. Plus the week they yanked it for the Obama thing, they really didnt do much advertising to remind people it was still there. And also remember the fact the show was picked up for a full season 3 weeks ago, and the ratings from last weeks were up from the week before that. Which is the week they really didnt advertise alot that KR would be on again...
And another thing about the reboot, they had already written the "reboot" episode before the season had even premiered, which is another indication that the whole SSC is part of a story arc that make's Mike go out on his own with KI3T.
I just wonder how it is that you call yourself the Knight Rider guy when you put down the original and state how nearly perfect the new show is when it hasn't even had a whole season yet and is plagued with problems.
Again I will ask you to quote where I put the show down and bashed it.
And we are on different opinions of this show. I like it, you dont. Ok?
Am I not allowed to like it or something because you think it sucks? Wow. That's, really...you know, lame and childish. And you're older than me right?
I like it cause it appeals to my generation...like i said, my friends dont care for the original but they love this show. Maybe the old one will grow on them because of this one. And in some cases they do ask me questions about the original so they can get a feel for this show, since i'm the KR knowitall of the group. My friends love the car, they think Zoe and Sarah are hot, they love it when Billy mentions Warcraft (my friends are gamers) and they're really intrigued with the whole Mike-doesnt-know-his-past story and exciting to see a KAcRRe VS KI3T episode soon.
