In terms of plot i dont see it as plausible though. The prototype shouldnt have MORE capabilities....



KARR was designed as an exo-skeletal AI-enhanced powersuit capable of infiltrating any modern urban environment with it's vehicle form and is military in nature. KITT was not designed (as Graiman intended anyway) with the same uses in mind so he has different capabilities and forms though the two do share the same underlying technology. KARR might not even have the infiltration modes that KITT has in that KARR could have only two physical configurations: Mustang and the bastard child of RoboCain and Megatron.

I know that the Transformers movie was the "big" thing at the box office when it was released, but having "transformer" aspects in this show bothers me. I can buy the transformation into attack mode, but having KITT morp into a van,truck, ect. annoys me. KARR transforming into a robot? I really wish he couldn't, but with the way the storyline is set up at least their is a reason for it. If KITT had a robot mode I think I would have given up on this show long ago. If the show continues I hope KARR loses this ability.

Sorry I dont see it but you can see the Mustang Racing Stripes the hood/scanner/head of KARR.


Yes it could be the stripes or light reflections, low resolution and my imagination which resulted some similar shapes of KITTvsKARR nose :D

It's so accurate...darn I wish it wern't for the low resoluiton,then we could have been 1000 percent!
Congratulations!By reading this signature,KITT's AWESOMENESS has increased by ONE POINT!
So far KITT's power level is OVER 9,000!!!!

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

It's odd, if they're making this a different KARR, why the yellow scanner (much less the voice)?

It's just a nod towards the original.

I agree. With so many people complaining that the show gets away from it's roots so much in my opinion they are trying to win those fans back. And the episode in the whole is a way to boost the ratings and a way to make the transition into the reboot (or out of it if you look at it that way).

TOS KARR's body was destroyed, why isnt it plausible in this incarnation that AI was recovered and placed in a new shell???

I think that's what happened, they recovered the blinking box and proceeded to make another pile of doo doo to be neck deep in at some point. That point is now.

It is possible as I have said in my other posts (i don't know if it was this topic(not trying to sound mean)). Many different senarios could go into this theory like some that I have heard or thought up that Graiman could have put it in the new body, the government could have picked it up, or FLAG could have picked it up. :karr: AAAAAAHHHHHHH
