Live Discussion - Don't Stop The Knight

Post by neps » Wed Jan 07, 2009 11:33 am

Use this topic to discuss tonights episode Don't Stop The Knight. We'll also be in the chat room as well!

MIKE AND KITT TRY TO RESCUE A KIDNAPPED FOREIGN AMBASSADOR FROM A TERRORIST IN TIME FOR PEACE TALKS--Mike (Justin Bruening) and KITT (voiced by Val Kilmer) are sent on an endless string of mini-missions by a crazy terrorist in exchange to keep Ambassador Olara Kumali (guest star Vanessa Williams) alive, but they soon realize that they are part of a bigger plan. Trying to outsmart the terrorist, Rivai (Sydney Tamiia Poitier) and a team of FBI agents find themselves in an explosive situation. Meanwhile, Sarah (Deanna Russo) and Dr. Graiman (Bruce Davison) try to fix a sick robot..


Remember - this is part one of a three episode arc that will see huge changes to Knight Rider!

Yeah, it's the much, much less famous one. :P But IMO she's more fitting for the role. I couldn't see Vanessa (L) Williams as an ambassador.

Dj, that actually sounds like loads of fun...I would love to watch it in their surround sound room at the same time. I would buy candy, have a seat, and just kick it and they would have to kick me out if they wanted me out before 9.

Well, looks like I won't get to watch it tonight. WMC TV-5 in Memphis decided to bump it in favor of some St. Jude hospital programming. :(

All I can say is they better run it at a later time slot so I can at least record it.

Looks like we got new opening credits for the next few episodes. It will be interesting to see if any of this episode's plot ties into KARR returning. I have to say that Turbo Boost over the prison fence was somewhat strange looking to me. Like it was unfinished or something.

Vaguely. It's just a montage of random KITT footage with the cast names put on the screen before or just after their faces are shown. KARR's schematics are shown at the beginning.

Taser butt shot!

I liked the whole Mike in disguise thing. Funny.

...

I know what you mean about the "unfinished" look of the turbo boost prison break - it would have been cool if there had been dust flying off the car. But I like the idea of jumping in and out. [And they removed the neon and logo under KITT. Cool.]

Got two new shots of KARR at the end. One of him revealing himself to Torres and another of him taking a swipe at KITT.

All of a Sudden this show is getting pretty damn good. No transformations (Save Attack KITT ), a good plot, non-stop action, 2 Turbo Boosts within the first 5 minutes ( Didn't look so good, but I expect they'll get better soon enough ). And that KARR episode looks like it could get good. I guess Ravai will die next week and then Graiman in the KARR episode. Hopefully it's not too late for this show to catch on. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :kitt2: :dash: :dash4:

totally agree. my heart was racing the whole hour.
the multiple (LONG) commercial breaks almost ruined it for me
but other than that i can't wait for next week. the new credits ruled
