I couldn't see that on my TV since I am in Canada.

Any chance that the preview could be placed on KR online or youtube.....

It definitely appears they've been listening to our opinions here. I do believe that if they went a little old school with the Turbo Boosts they would look better. What I mean is they should show KITT jumping from directly overhead, like TOS did with the model cars, that would probably work, instead of trying too much. But at least we got Turbo Boosts tonight.

Same music, re-done sequence of visuals, some from before and quite a few new ones.

Also, I'm not saying that every episode needs to be but it was GREAT how focused the storytelling was this time on the story-at-hand and the pacing was as good as they've done yet with surprisingly little wasted air time. And a nicely done situation where KITT and Michael are separated and both are still doing things, it was cool watching KITT acting on his own stalling for time. Even the stuff with Graiman, Sarah and then just Graiman and the AI issue away from the main storyline for this particular episode felt nicely integrated and nice and on-point (didn't linger and was just as "snappy" as the rest of the episode).

It might just be me, but the directing style also seemed a little different, the episode itself actually felt a lot more exciting, and with how almost razor-focused the episode was in what it was doing it felt like they accomplished a ton more in just one hour.

I enjoyed the turbo-boosted prison break, the one going in looked nice too, the several angles it had were nice (great seeing the neon gone).

I like the new opening credits. At least they show the actors now and not just
the car in every scene. One thing I do have to ask is why show all the actors
in the credits now that you have plans to kill most of them off?

So, this is part one of three, meaning this is the beginning of the KARR episode as
it said in 2 weeks for KARR. next week is part 2 and the week after is KARR.

Looks like the show may be getting better after all. Hopefully it isn't to late though.
I'd like to see this get picked up next year!

I agree that they are listening to the feedback, the Turbo Boost I liked better then the second episode. The looked like the old TOS turbo Boosts, I still think that the creative minds behind this episode was different or the other producers got more involved to open up to new creative episode layout...

Great Job....

You know what I also noticed which was a pain in my side, the camera shots weren't so choppy, what I mean is that the camera shots weren't changing every second, giving me a seizure, very well done that way...More KITT more FUN...

Wow! Best Episode by far! I really enjoyed the first step in Re-booting the series and from what I have seen, I just can't wait until next week to see how this all begins to play out! I thought the Turbo-Boost scene was awesome, KITT doing things to help Mike like driving himself and using Mike's voice was very old school. I liked the flying drone also, but the best part of the whole episode I thought was the fact that is was just Mike and KITT on the road doing a bunch of things with the rest of the cast back at the SSC instead of being on the road with Mike and KITT! I really think they are starting to get the picture over at NBC and I can only hope that the ratings improve so we may yet see a season 2, because I think that it is only going to get better from here! :good:

I liked the goofy little angry robot XD Can't wait to see what job he gave him. I LOVE that they took th stupid logo off Kitt's belly for Turbo Boosts. Oh so happy ^.^ I missed the part where Karr is infront of Tores though -pout- But I'm super psyched for the rest of the episodes!!

This is the way KITT should be! I can't wait till next week and the KARR episode!

This isn't going to be the end of KITT on NBC is it since they're killing off some of the characters or are they getting ready for Hasselhoff to take over? Since it was rumored he was going to be back for season 2.

God I hope it doesn't go off the air. It seemed there for a while every show I liked they took it off of the air. Such as TKR, Dark Skies, The Visitor and Viper.

If they make this a serial series like 24 I think it might last longer. This day and time you have to keep the audience glued to the show with suspense and action and an ongoing plot like 24 does.

OMG! I hate cliffhangers! I need to know what happens! At least it is great for trying to forget life and absorb into someone else's.

NBC better not do to us what Universal Action Pack did to those of us who watched Team Knight Rider. They cut off season one with a to be continued episode and then didn't even have a season 2 at all or an hour episode to answer the questions at the end of season one. So hopefully NBC/Universal won't screw us on this one.

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.]

Now if they could just ADD some sound effects.
KITT: I walked right into that one, didn't I?
Michael: More like Turbo Boosted.

I agree guys, it felt like they are indeed listening.


That and if he did manage to throw it somewhere "safe" It better be far away as the radius of the explosion is a LARGE area
