Live Discussion - Day Turns Into Knight

Post by neps » Wed Jan 14, 2009 12:42 pm

Use this topic to discuss tonights episode Day Turns Into Knight. We'll also be in the chat room as well!

MIKE AND KITT CONTINUE ON THEIR QUEST TO STOP A TERRORIST FROM DETONATING A NUCLEAR WEAPON AND KILLING THE AMBASSADOR--Mike (Justin Bruening) and KITT (voiced by Val Kilmer) are now transporting a bomb in the trunk of the car, but in order for it not to explode they must stay above 100 miles-per-hour. Trying to come up with a plan to disable the bomb, they load KITT onto the plane to buy some time and keep up their speed. Clinging to life, Rivai (Sydney Tamiia Poitier) manages to give a clue to find where the terrorist is hiding. Meanwhile, Sarah (Deanna Russo) receives some upsetting news about her dad. Bruce Davison, Yancey Arias and Paul Campbell star. Smith Cho recurs and Rick Hoffman and Richard Roundtree guest star.


Remember - this is part two of a three episode arc that will see huge changes to Knight Rider! Two people leave the series tonight! And Shaft guest stars! Tonights episode I believe is written by David Andron (wrote the Pilot and Hard Day's Knight)

Ohhhhhhh..... This should be good! Andron is a good writer. I have high hopes for this one.

I think it will do nicely in the ratings as well.

Well I I can't wait myself to see it. From watching the trailer and what we know it is going to be Alex Torres or Charles Graiman that will die. But if you read the discription Sarah recieves awfull news suggesting it will be Charles Graiman but I honestly can't possibly think they would kill Charles but it would make sense. But I'm hoping it will be Alex Torres. He can die for all I care.

Is this the episode where we will find out just what did happen to the team from FLAG?

I want to hear it from Charles and not the others

I just read that Peter Cullen is returing as the voice of KARR next week. It's on wikipedia under his name and if you look up karr both spots say he is the voice, awesome if it's true!

Yes, it's true, was reported here a couple weeks ago. :) We don't apparently find out the FLAG stuff until 12 or probably 13, after Charles has already bit the big one.
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:

I think that the rating will do very good, I was looking at the ratings for NBC last week and KR beat 30 rock by 500K and .5 in that wierd other rating system, I believe that KR was #11 on the list top 20 NBC shows and that includes football as well.. So its progressively doing better.

Dave Andron I think will produce more shows and will be exceptional.. :kittconv:

Oh ugh! That turbo boost looked TERRIBLE. Like "get the car off screen as fast as possible so we don't have to fiddle with how it looks" >.< And if that motorcycle cop fell off going at that speed, he'd be dead like 10 times over. I like Kitt as a cop car though, reminds me of some show I can't put my finger on >.< Besides that goofy-ness, I like the beginning so far lol. And I had a dream about the next episode (Kitt vs. Karr) so I'm optimistic about the next episodes :P

I actually thought that was a good solution for that particular jump, practically real-time and totally un-cheesy, the landing looked good and even had a good dose of sequence continuity with the zoom in on the HUD showing the landing slowing them down awfully close to 100 without needlessly talking about it since everyone knew it wouldn't happen.

Personally I liked the chase, a better sense of speed than a number of the chases. I liked the single-minded focus on the chase and the ton of outside shots with motion-blur during it, much better than only seeing it from inside the car.

Also, THIS is the kind of sense of humor the show needs, not the cheesy kind of the earlier episodes, this sharp whitty stuff, KITT's was good, even the stuff from the no-name pilot was good about the crash positions.

I wish we would see a shot of KARR at the end of the episode. That would rock.

I really liked this episode. It flowed very well, and had good was of the characters leaving. I loved hearing KARR's voice and seeing some of that action. Also, it only said that the battle was begining.

Oh man, what a fantastic episode. Seriously, Andron needs to write more stories - or become a story director or something. His scripts come closest to the potential I felt in the pilot movie (which makes sense). The way they handled the departure of Rivai and Graiman were interesting in that they didn't happen how I was speculating they would at all.

The preview for next week - that preview was WOW. The fanboy in me squealed. :D

Even the part about sending "one man" to do the job was great.
