What's wrong with "knight" in the title? TOS had it too:

Knight of the Phoenix (granted it was done after syndication)
Knight Moves
Knightmares
Silent Knight
A Knight In Shining Armour
A Good Knight's Work
Knight of the Drones
Knight of the Fast Lane
Halloween Knight
Knight in Disgrace
Dead of Knight
Lost Knight
Knight of the Chameleon
Knight by a Nose
Knightlines
Knight and Knerd
Knight in Retreat
Knight Strike
Circus Knights
Knight of the Juggernaut
Sky Knight
Knight Sting
Knight Racer
Knight Behind Bars
Knight Song
Knight of a Thousand Devils
Knight Flight to Freedom
Fright Knight
Knight of the Rising Sun
Voo Doo Knight


If it had been up to me, every ep of TOS would have had "Knight" in the title.

surely this episode order change had to have been planned from the start.
It doesnt make sense otherwise.

If Episode 17 is now on next week and episode 13 is now last..wont their be some weirdness in the storyline?

In the original episode 13 FLAG is back and one would assume they would operate as FLAG from then on..
however..if the episode is now last..will they have to redit 14,15,16 and original 17 to remove all references to flag..seeing as it doesnt come into being until the last episode now?

unless there is some kind of surpised/cliff hanger for Episode 13/"17" so they pushed it

Not really sure how to respond to that. If they planned a cliffhanger for the original episode 17, wouldn't moving it to 13 totally screw things up? As far as we know they wrapped things up after 17, so they didn't shoot new scenes for episode 14 or something like that. And yet episode 13 was also supposed to sort of 'wrap things up' as far as the reboot is concerned', so I'm hoping it doesn't become a 'wrap the show up'!

I'm just guessing here, and maybe a little bit cynical, but i think this change has nothing to do with the integrity of the show, and more to do with the exec producer/writers wanting to get their shows on the air first in case NBC pulls the plug early.

Also, since these last shows are completely self-contained, i.e. no plot crossover from ep to ep, it doesn't really matter in what order they're shown.

I don't think these guys care about getting everything in the KR universe exactly right, they just want to tell some good stories going out. So whether or not FLAG has been properly established takes a back seat to other issues.

Hopefully this doesn't mean it'll get the axe! (Leaving the season with the creation of FLAG is a typical happy ending for a series like this....)

On the bright side, Angela Bromstad (prime-time entertainment president for NBC) is quoted saying:

"What we're intending to do is make sure that we have a good amount of pilots to choose from. We're going to have to beat existing shows [with ones showing more promise] or bring those shows back.”

So if Knight Rider does get canceled try not to watch too much NBC for a couple months so that they'd hopefully bring it back haha :lol:

If KR is canceled, then I officially stop watching TV on my television. Right now the only things that are on it is Noggin and KR once a week.

For me, the only show on a major network (on any of the big three) I watch is Knight Rider. Otherwise, it's either SciFi Channel or anything else on cable. If the show gets cancelled I hope they bring it out on DVD at least. Maybe they'll get smart and show it on SciFi which I think would be the best for KR even in reruns.

The same thing that happened to TOS is happening to KR08. Scent of the Roses was supposed to be the final episode of TOS but NBC moved up the airing and we got Voo Doo Knight as the series finale. Exit Light, Enter Knight was supposed to be the season finale, now I Love the Knight Life is the season finale.

I have read 4 different articles that say the same thing. Knight Rider has not been canceled. If it was going to be canceled or in fact was they would not have even shown the episodes.

I'd quite like "enter Knight" to be referring to the return of DH as Mike's dad, even just for a small part...

Of course they would, they paid for them, they were filmed, they would want to try to recoup some of their losses by airing them with a boatload of commercials.. Not to mention the deal with Ford...

If the episodes are just 'stand alone' then it doesnt really matter which order they are shown in

FLAG itself can be created at any point between 12 and 17, anything else could just be Mike helping people out in the mean time, much like TOS where MK would do things which would only become missions AFTER they were completed...

It still works

This show like most others has some elements of a serial nature even thought it is episodic. The characters usually grow and dialogue is extrapolated to include references to past stuff, etc.

Perhaps with the reboot, they decided to really make it more episodic where, say, episode 15 didn't reference anything from Ep. 14, etc.

Perhaps switching 17 with 13 really is not a big deal at all to them. It should make sense for continuity sake, so hopefully nothing will be glaring as far as continuity is concerned.

If the original 17 had a cliffhanger filmed, maybe it was a second ending, so they'll use the other now. Perhaps it could have been switched with 13's ending or something. Reediting and such can extend an episode's story, and perhaps the fifth act was changed dramatically in the editing room, etc. Most shows have cut scenes that can last a minute or longer, so use could be had from them for airing.

It'll be interesting to see how this gets played out, for sure.

Over at Comics continuum, I saw that they announced the Feburary episodes of ""Knight Rider"- but the last two are missing. Are they holding them in anticipation of the Digital switch, which has been pushed back, or march sweeps, or what?

Why cant they just stay in the order? Did they do some reshooting on some episodes?


Agreed. I'm so comfused with the Hole Series now as Channel Fiver was showing in Order and I had just got up to the part where Charles had died, Now Channel 5 is Showing Knight Rider and its showing Episodes when Charles was alive which iv never seen :S.. I;m just gonna buy the Series 1 Collection off Ebay!

Btw, I watched the Episode where it Mentioned Flag.. What is Flag? I didn't understand that bit :L
