Just like the couch moving into the pitch black SSC for the first time and so on. This is one of the flaws of trying to write and shoot episodes under the gun out of sequence. Sometimes it works if the stories are independent enough and sometimes it backfires...especially when you need to fix something that your audience doesn't care for and it's already too late because you've already spent the money on shooting or creating it.
Also when KITT and Michael are talking about the gattling gun and how it will only work for 7 seconds this confused me because in Fly By Knight both gattling guns are working perfectly fine. I guess these could be seen at nitpicks but it definately pulls me out of the story. I hope when the series gets released on DVD they rearrange these episodes in the correct order.
I`ve been a long time fan of TOS and it`s taken me a few episodes to get into KR08 but were finally seing the old formula kicking in. That`s not to say I didn`t enjoy the first half of the season but this to me is definately the prefered format. While this episode wasn`t any spectacular it had it`s moments with the thugs trying to break into KITT and the really cool sideways turbo boost. KITT screaming was very odd and out of character but for some reason it kind of fit and I laughed out loud when it happened.
I have high hopes for this series as the people behind really seem to be trying to recapture the charm that TOS had.
