Though now they're getting rid of Graiman for some bizarre reason, and I don't understand that either. Bringing back an 'old flame' of his wasn't what bothered me, it was the fact that they couldn't keep their hands off each other. So we're supposed to believe that the entire organization is completely out of control of their hormones? I've seen other shows tastefully do the 'old flame' storyline, here they acted as high school-ish as the rest of their employees.

(Maybe THAT'S what's wrong with the government, they're all making out all the time :) . Unfortunately they're not nearly as attractive :shock: )

After the Holidays could mean after Thanksgiving... or they cuold be redoing some scene for episode 9? MAYBE?

The whole Charles sex life was not necessary but hey i dont make the final decisions. Wish tho with KITT crashing into the building we could of scene the outside view of KITT Crashing in.

not seen the ep yet but are NBC going to use the 'break' as an opportunity to promote KR08 prior to the reTOOL (not reboot as we've been in to this discussion before)??????

This episode was at least a hundred times better than last week's.... KITT finally crashed through a wall... Now if only it was shot better.. A little light on the actual action and I dunno about now Billy driving... His side story was alright... The 2010 Mustang shilling was at least at a minimum, wasn't as bad as the "Green Week" crap.

I'll need to watch it again... Right now, I guess 7/10...
The new and again improved evil's advertisement is currently too long and too badass to display here. But let's just say that with now 50% more evil, this **** is great! :twisted: :skar:

To me this episode seemed like a good mixture of Knight Rider and Las Vegas(probably because they were actually IN vegas but i digress)

Morongo Casino Resort and Spa.....Indian Casino 30 min. west of Palm Springs....I am a slot attendant on the casino floor. Have worked there since before the tower you see was built. *I am shaking with glee. And screaming at the tv* I know every spot they taped at.

KR4Life wrote:Man, I for one think the whole "Green Week' over-tones were a bit much. I'm all for keepin' it green and clean, but can a quasi-govermental project like Knight Indutries REALLY be scared of a 'eco-audit' (much less get shut down by it). None the less, 'Knight of the Zodiac' was an okay episode. The initial back & forth with Mike and KITT was amusing and the setup for the mission was kinda cool. Someone likes watching 'Ocena's 13' much?! The set-up for the heist took too long (how were they gonna stand up straight let alone rob a casino), but paid off well enough in the end. Anyone else think the Zodiac Gang will return? I sure hope they will!

And what was up with Billy going on the mission, then having nothing to do with it? I mean, sure Billy's lil Vegas adventure was a joy, but it made no logical sense. And by 'logical', I mean to the extent actual logic applied to the episode, i.e. if Mike called KITT everytime he needed a tech issue resolved, what was my man Billy gonna do? And I was totally disappointed when Billy called for 'Attak Mode' ..... then we cut to the warehouse?!?! He was robbed, I say!

Dr. Graiman's reunion with his old 'interest', Tess, was handled pretty well. The way Sarah was in total denial was amusing and how Charles kept getting that 'I'm a pimp' smirk on his face was priceless!! I did notice Tess kept pressing for KITT's specs and Charles picked up on that. Maybe Tess is looking for somethign beyond a carbon footprint??

And last of all, we see the secret crash-pad of he who was 'Mike Traceur', The MIke-Cave!! Graffiti mural (that says 'KITT Cave', I think), pool table, giant ass plasma TV, dude has all the candy! And the paraphrased line, "What happens in Vegas, stays in ...KITT!", was the perfect end to the episode. Indeed, well said, sir!

'Knight of the Zodiac' ---> a solid 4 of 5 Turbo Boosts!!

P.S. How long do you think you all will last until the KR withdrawl sets in? I give myself 2-3 weeks. I hate winter-breaks on TV!!

I thought that was the rec room from last week's episode. other than that, I have nothing to add, here. wait- yes i do... NO TORRES. (Didn't miss him.)

Here is their website...The cafe behind Billy is the Serrano, as also the bar behind him is the Pit Bar...The High Limit sign...The entryway is supposed to be a flowering orchid. http://morongocasinoresort.com/

This show gets dogged by NBC we have a Barack in the middle of the series, now we have Rosie's christmas show. After 8 episodes we are taking a six week break, what the hell??

Then the next episode is on New Year's Eve? Yeah they will get great ratings that night. Guess I'll be watching that one online.

So if they are killing off these cast members. Is that it? If the next episode is the re-boot, are they just letting these characters dissappear?

The shots of KI3T and Mike driving on the strip were not recent, blue screen and stock footage.
It would have been nice for them to shoot here for a day or two!
I would have loved to watch them shoot.

Could Dr. Graiman's love interest (Tess) poison him during a future episode, like what happened to Devon in TOS in order for Goliath to get the MBS formula?
