Wasn't there supposed to be mention of what happened to the original FLAG? I thought we were promised that in this episode...

But I am happy that they finally said the words "One Man Can Make A Difference".

I hope the ratings were good for this ep. I have been hearing more and more people who were dissing the show early on admitting they were watching it and enjoying it, and that it was more like an extension of the original series now. I hope that is happening many other places! Here's hoping for Season 2!!

Awesome. It's pretty good episode so far!


That alone would have made the episode worthwhile but it was so much better besides that! At the end Sarah was reading records of the former FLAG foundation solved cases is too bad they did not have any video of the old team in action showing up in the monitors. I loved the new FLAG emblem finally showing off and how they commented the famous catch phrase "One man can make a difference" although I do agree with Zoe that they are a team so maybe it should "All for one and one for all"? :mrgreen:

Anyway a perfect 10 out of 10 for this one. :good: I sure hope this is not Goodbye and that the show is renewed.

I am sorry to say that I actually laughed when Mike was drunk and insisting on a BURGER! I can't believe they put that in there!

Did you guys notice when Sarah was going through the archive files if you look it shows all the names of the episodes on the screens. I wish they could have gone into more detail about them :(

Other than that good episode and I pray we get a second season!

I think if we do get a second season they will probally mention what happened to the old FLAG.
It is kind of sad that Knight Rider is done with season 1 for the time being. Just have to hope & prayer we get a second and so one of Knight Rider

bige12- actually the other manufacturers were all ford owned. Lincoln (I think it was a MKZ), Volvo, A Ford van, and Billy was driving a Mazda 3 hatchback (also owned by Ford 13%). Ford is such a big company they have a huge stable of cars to chose from; Mazda, Saab, Lincoln, Volvo, Jaguar and Land Rover up until last year.
-just so you know

One Man Can Make A Difference W00T!!! They Finally said it!
Wouldn't it be awesome if NBC really went by that and 5000+ fans could really make a difference!

Sorry to be a stickler, but Saab is bankrupt and is owned by GM..for now. Ford recently sold their stake in Mazda. Jaguar and Land Rover were sold a while ago.
KNIGHT RIDER RELOADED is a series of movies on Youtube to represent a different creative avenue to the Knight Rider we knew in 2008-09.

I have been watching the new Knight Rider since the Feb 08 movie. I thought the series had potential. But I am sad to say that it was taken in a bad direction.

I have lost faith in this new production. Tonights episode did me in.

This series has more in common with AUTOMAN then Knight Rider. Lots of neon and digital FX, morphing vehicles.

In my opinion for the show to improve Billy and Zoe would have to be dropped to recurring status. Get rid of the SSC. And have the stories focus predominantly on Mike and KITTs adventures. KITT isn't even utilized to his greatest potential.

TOS was, at it's heart, a buddy cop show. Mike and KITT out fighting the good fight. With only each other to lean on for the most part. KITT is supposed to be the brains, the CSI to Mikes ground pounder and tactician. Nope. KITT is reduced to an Enterprise like computer only giving out bits of information not disemmination of the information.

Even though cancellation would hurt the franchise in the short term I think it is for the best at this point.

The only way I can see being a faithful viewer next season (if there is one) is if more major changes are made. If big changes were made than I would be back...if they are changes for the better.

Awesome episode! If only they had been like that from the beginning, I don't think we'd be worrying about not getting a second season :cry:

What a great episode! I really hope we get a season 2 because ever since the re-boot this show has really tried to go back to it's roots and I finally believe they have got the right chemistry and cast now to do just that. KITT has really evolved and his relationship with Mike has only begun to resemble the one between KI2T and The Hoff! Well, all we can do now is hope that NBC and Ford have heard our voices and and know that we are a very loyal fan base, and give Knight Rider one more chance to prove that one man can make a difference, along with his friends and a super car ofcourse! :good:

well, lot of things to like about this episode... the feel of it is starting to be right. For a series finale (demo ratings were once a relative strength but haven't even been at least on-the-bubble bad for a long time now), at least this Knight Rider ended on a high note creatively. I think in the end, they did the honor the brand.

WOW I am really suprised that Billy and Zoe are still taking negative hits.
This is 2009 not 1985, the work of Bonnie translates into two now. Even at the end of TOS they had whats his name, RC I think. Anywho, they work for an updated version of the show. Heck it was nice seeing Billy in the filed tonight and Zoe being out in the field for the ep a few weeks back. Of course these are just my opions, but I have been a fan of the show since TOS and the following movies, never watched TKR.

I can accept the the changes and still feel the, at this point, heart of TOS beating in KR2008. We had some bumps but I feel we are getting where we need to be.

This episode was way too good to cancel the series,I get the feeling after watching tonite,that it will continue.hopefully NBC wont make the same mistake that they did with Star Trek 40 some years ago.

Is it me or when he came out drunk did he say..."don't worry i'm a flag" lmao either way that was some funny stuff. Can't wait till season 2 they have finally got the show dead on. I mean the lil sit down with KITT like he was a 7yr old. And the talk about secrets...priceless.

don't ya think it would have been really great if when Sarah said she had been looking at old files and the main screen said something like "archived cases" the big screen scrolled down through images and what not and we saw a nice big picture of...

I loved this episode, too. I think the one thing I've loved through this last part of the season is the humor and relationship between Kitt and Mike. It's what I loved about the old series too. Watching Mike drunk had me ROFL, especially when he forgot about the girl in the trunk! Mike really got a beating in this one too. I know it's all stunt work, but I still can't help cringing at the thought of what a guy that strong could do to a person. Can't blame Sarah for wanting to keep Mike safe, but he is right that if he's going to be in charge out in the field, Kitt needs to follow his orders.

Oh man, I can't believe this is the end of the season (gotta keep thinking positive :) ). It seems like yesterday that it was September...

If anyone from the Knight Rider cast and crew are reading this, thank you for all of your hard work in bringing this show to life again. See you next season??????? I'm hoping and praying and keeping my fingers crossed. 8)

Whats dissappointing is all the breaks we had to go through, a reboot, Obama twice, rosie, a 6 week break. Up against some of the biggest shows, and next week Fox is not airing American Idol during KR's old time slot WTF. Wouldnt that have been nice a few times not to go up against AI or Dancing with the Stars?????? This truly is David vs Goliath!!

:cry: im so upset, I had the episode to tape tonight because I wasn't home and something happened to the DVR and it never taped, so I have no idea what happened or how it ended. Is there anywhere to watch the full episode? I really want to see it, I've read the above comments and it's so ticked I didn't get to see it.... I knew I should have stayed home to watch it. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
Billy: Mike, did I just hear KITT smacking you around?
Mike: KITT and I are communicating. ...It’s what partners do.
Billy: Ah, it just sounded like KITT was making you his bitch.

This was an awesome episode! I'm so sad that it may be the last one. :( I hope NBC has been paying attention to us, the fans, and will give it another season!
The drunk bit was hilareous! "Zoe can't cook, and there's nothing in the fridge. I wanna burger!" I loved it!
Anybody else have the feeling we were getting a bit of the "Incredible Hulk," when the guys eyes changed because of the serum?
And then there was the bit about the "KI3T, remember what I said about the 'hangover voice?'" That was so funny!
I loved the way KI3T zapped the guy that drove him over to get Mike.

I too would have loved to see some pics of KI2T in those archived files. Either that, or gotten some close-ups of a few of the case files, so we could see which cases they were. :)

I assume you're in the states, so tomorrow you can watch it online from NBC's site or Hulu.
