Knight Rider on SCI FI UK

Post by pete_scificouk » Tue Jun 02, 2009 9:16 am

Hi,

As you're probably all aware Knight Rider is currently receiving its UK premiere on the SCI FI Channel.

I'm Pete, I work on scifi.co.uk.

Just to let you know we have various video content on the site. Right now UK viewers can see a preview scene from next week's episode - Hard Day's Knight - http://www.scifi.co.uk/shows/knight-rider/.

Also, let me know if any of you have any pictures or events you want to feature on our site.

Cheers

Pete

Hope our friends in UK add more weight to our campaign and see if NBC can bring back the show one way or another Image :kitt:

Another good thing for the show over here on Sci-fi, is that it's getting promoted on other channels as well.
There's been adverts for it on SKY1.

Pete,

Any chance you could keep us upto date with viewer ratings? I know the Pilot did well and the first episode gained but I've not been able to find out how its done since?

Thanks

I saw part of the episode on Sci-Fi last week (2/6) where K.I.T.T. was underwater and last night's episode (9/6) where Mike was an assassin. EXCELLENT episodes !!

:?:

How many more episodes of the new KNIGHT RIDER, currently being shown on the Sci-Fi channel in the U.K., are there to go ?

Also, can someone please give me some info on the characters and how they are related to the characters in the old series.

No ... because there isn't a season 2 planned by NBC, and sadly, there may never will be.

The episode where Mike goes undercover in the mercenaries who are going to blow up the dam and he meets Cassandra Banks, the undercover MI6 agent. She would've made a good returning character. Just a shame the series was scrapped. :cry:
