As Promised in Knight Watch Issue 38, I would set up a Poll topic for you all to vote for the episodes nominated on Knight Watch.

Only 1 per person, it's your vote and your power- make it count.

The winner and the best episode of Season One will be announced in 3 weeks.

I'll thought i lovre the knight life was a very good episode and was very much original KR, my list will probably go like this. (1) Kinght to kings pawn
(2) Exit light enter Knight
(3) Day turns to Knight
(4) Fly by Knight
(5) I love the Kinght life
(6) Knight of the living dead
(7) Knight of the hunter :kittspin: :kitt2:

i liked fly by knight. good action, humor. loved billy in that episode.. "you and KITT having some sort of couples moment?" plus it was really indictive of the original series, flag helping the little guys.

then exit knight, enter light, followed by knight in the city and i love the knight life.

I liked your pole because it listed them all and seems a little bit more fair. I vote for Knight to King's Pawn.

Oh theres even one that poll left off, he he... I guess my top vote might really be prometheus.

What was the name of the two-parter again? Because that's my favorite one. Followed by Exit Light, and A Hard Day's Knight, I think.

Definitely Fly By Knight is the best of the season. I guess it has to be Fly By Knight or Exit Light, Enter Knight, a tie up between the two.... :good: :good: :good: :good:

I'm going to say none of the retooled episodes...

Why?

I disliked all of them as they were all full of bad writing (stuff like KI3T, the emotionless AI who "cannot be happy" screaming in fear), and I acually prefer the pre-retooling episodes to the post retooling episodes and was kind of sad the didn't follow up on Mike's past the way the originally planned. If the're going to follow up with a second season with episodes as bas as the post retooling epsiodes I'm hoping it gets canceled. Some shows should not be allowed to continue till they become so bad they start scaring away the viewers.

A good example of a show that was allowed to linger on WAY too long is Friends, the first few seasons were whachable and pretty enjoyable, but towards the end it turned to total garbage (yes, get your flamethrowers ready folks).

An example of a show that was killed off at the right time before it got bad was the original Knight Rider, it evolved trough the 4 seasons it went trough and the quality declined all the way to season 3, but roze back to the level of the first season in the forth season, whereafter it was killed off before it was allowed to take another nosedive.

Shure, we have Team Knightrider which got better towards the end, but it still was an insult towards the Knight Rider legacy even at the end (with the exeption of the K.R.O episode which was atleast whachable).

The epidode that I liked the best before the retooling was the last episode before they turned the show into crap, Knight to King's pawn.

Shure, it had to put some loose wires together from the canceled episodes with the darker original storyline (which I like more than wah the're doing after the retooling) but it was still a good episode. I wish they would have had more KARR in it because I'we always liked KARR more than KITT as KARR just simply feels like it's more complex character than KITT (by this I mean both the originals and the new ones compared to eachother).

The thing that appaled to me the most in the episode was the generally darker atmosphere compared to the original series and the episodes before.

Personally I hope the new KARR returns in season 2, maybe as being recreated by some party who would have stolen the AI unit of him after KI3T turboboosted trough him, and this time the fight could end up in a draw (KARR disabling KI3T and escaping after taking major damage or being destroyed, but then being revealed to to be at another loaction with Mike and KI3T actually just fighting a remote controlled puppet).

What I'd like to see in season 2 is something like a cross between the pilot and the original show (i.e firing most of the writing staff), basically this would mean getting rid of the Billy and Zoe characers, adding a new Devon Miles kind of character (like Charles Greiman was before he was killled off) and making Sarah into a season 1 Bonne Barstow kind of character (motherlike mechanic of KITT and love intrest to Michael).
