Hello There Everyone, :D

I see that I have another post to comment on: 8)

A.) "I particularly like the article on "themustangnews". I enjoyed the new Knight Rider, and I wouldn't say it as explicit as the author does. And some things were not that bad, like the actors or Kilmer as KITT. I kinda liked them. But the bottom line is right."

I did not like the article here written by Sam Haymart of Them Mustang News and posted here by Garthe Knight. Here is the article by Sam Haymart and I do apologize here but he is not right at all. I too enjoyed the show and felt it was far better then what is stated here. Now for Sam's comments:

B.)"Did anyone even notice that the weekly thriller featuring a Shelby GT-500KR that can morph into an F-150, Fusion or an aquarium was missing from the nightly schedule? NBC has indeed killed the show after only 17 heart stopping episodes, in the middle of the production season."

That is his opinion and the reality. The show has not officially been cancelled and the reduced amount of episodes means nothing. Sam here is really coming off as a real smart-ass to me with his comments.

C.)"Yes, we will have to do without one more brain cell-depleting display of bad acting, vacant writing and B-Grade computer generated graphics. It is sad really that this show was so awfully bad. And make no mistake, it was baaaaad! Even Sponge Bob has more intelligence, intellectual stimulation and creativity and that show is made to appeal to the youngest of viewers. And I don’t have to worry as much about Sponge Bob teaching my kids to be brainless self-absorbed sluts."

Funny I can say that about alot of the stuff on tv right at the moment. I can see that Sam does not like the show which is fine but, I do not share his feelings here. I really believe that Knight Rider is far better then his lame and thoughtless comments. How does he know the show is cancelled when the rest of us don't and NBC has not said a bloody thing about the show? Alot of the tv shows on now are as bad as Sam is stating about Knight Rider and no, Sponge Bob is not better nor, have more intelligence. The special effects are fine and enjoyable and the only one here that is brianless and self absorbed is the wiriter of this pathetic article Sam him self.

D.)"The show’s only positive contribution was the great car. It looked good, sounded good and made the show borderline acceptable to leave on while you were sitting by on your laptop scrutinizing your E-Trade account. There were just enough exhaust notes dubbed in and just enough driving sequences to keep the channel from being turned to CSPAN or re-runs of Frasier."

I do agree that the show had a great car but, I thought that the show had more going for it then what is stated here. The show was more then borderline acceptable I can see that Sam's intellignence with this article is borderline acceptable. C-Span or Fraiser?? What is he talking about? The show was that good that I didn't want to change the channel for some lame show as Fraiser. C-SPAN bores me. The driving sequences were awesome and the show great. his guy Sam Haymart is obviously clueless here with these comments.

I will have more to say in a moment... :kitt2:

Hello There Everyone, :D

Here is the continuation of my thoughts on this article: 8)

E.)"The show’s cancellation means that we wont likely be seeing Michael Tracuer driving a new 2010 Shelby GT-500 this summer. That was something I was looking forward to. Ok, not really. But I will say that this show was an opportunity lost."

What cancellation??? I can see the sarchasim here with this article and I do agree that the opportunity that was lost was NBC not pushing the show as hard as they could and moving the show away from American Idol. I do miss looking forward to the new episodes every week and seeing the new Kitt perform but, as I have said all along that I do not feel nor believe that the show is gone. The question that I have is how come all these obscure web sites have the knowledge that Knight Rider is cancelled and NBC and the rest of us do not?

F.)"Imagine what could have been if this show was constructed around a more mature audience, a more realistic set of plot lines, and a writing staff that was older than 13. Imagine if it had been a show like 24 which grabs you by the aorta and keeps you planted for an hour each week."

Gee, I do not realize that Knight Rider was immature? I am now more convinced then ever that Sam Haymart has not watched the series long enought to know what in the heck he is talking about. The show was built around a mature audience and the sets and show certainly looked realistic to me. I was hooked in for all the episodes so, I am not sure what Sam is talking about. I thought the writing staff could have done better but, was far older then 13.

I will conclude my thoughts here in a moment... :kitt2:

Hello There Everyone, :D

Back with my take on things: 8)

G.)"Take the style and gravity of Jack Bauer, add in some relevant and believable plot lines and this could have been a winner. The car itself could have even lost some of its goofy features, fakery and downright lame morphs. Val Kilmer and his Nancy-Boy voice could have been left in the dust bin of washed up actors. Imagine sort of a modern day Rockford Files with a killer car, some awesome driving, and a modern set of bad guys (but without the orange contact lenses)."

I thought Knight Rider was fine especially the last four episodes were we got back to the original show. Adding elements of 24 and Jack Bauer would not make any sense at all. The plot lines were relevent and believable and the show is a winner in my eyes. Take alot of what Kitt can do away and you might as well being watching a lame police show. The show and kitt are nothing without the features which by the way are not goofy and the morphs are not fakery and lame but, I can see that Sam Haymart is with this pointless article. I liked Val Kilmar as his role as the voice of KITT. This article is what should have been left in the dust bin of washed up and lame news reporters. As far as I am concerned this is a modern day Rockford Files with a killer car and awesome driving. I do believe that we do have modern day bad guys. I do not see what contact lenses have to do with anything.

H.)"Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda. NBC surely already has another hour of crap to replace it in the can and ready to go."

Gee real funny. This is certainly a fool and narrow minded when it comes to good tv and Knight Rider. I disagree with Sam's comments here. He is wrong and doesn't have a clue as to what he is even talking about. I can see that the Mustang News.com has a crappy newsman to replace in the can and be ready to go. I am not sure that makes any sense but, I am not pleased with Sam's comments here.

I.)"KR is about lost opportunities. It had so much potential and because they blew it, we won't see KR in a loooong time now. That makes me sad

I do appreciate Garthe Knight's comments here but, I do agree with the blew it coment above. I don't agree with the remart about it being along time before we see Knight Rider again. It will be back sooner then we think. That makes me happy. I am sorry that he feels differently which is fine and his right. I am not tryng to ruffling any feathers here. I am just offering a different point of view. :kitt:

Thanks and take care,
Michael P. Nepa

Wow. Super Flash, calm down, or you'll be getting a heart attack. :wink: (no offense)
No need to personally attack the author, you clearly took the article the wrong way. This is no Knight Rider bashing article. It's a lillte bit exaggerated and it has some sarcasm in it, but generally the author watched Knight Rider and kinda liked it. Otherwise he wouldn't have written the article.

And he just points out what many of us think. Be realistic, if KR had been so great, we wouldn't have to worry it could be cancelled.

The conecpt of the new show was wrong, and there are many ways it could have been better.
This does not mean there is noone who liked it, but it was definitely a disappointment for me. Still I watched and I want it to go on, I want it to improve. The last four episodes were a step into the right direction. But looking back it was not the show I hoped for after watching the pilot movie.

Hello There Everyone, :D

I am fine. :good:

I am fine and I meant no offense to anyone here with my comments but, just trying to offer a different view point. I am not convinced that Sam did watch the show based on his comments. It is his job to report things whether or not he liked them. I do agree with the other points above and I did not take the article the wrong way. 8)

"And he just points out what many of us think. Be realistic, if KR had been so great, we wouldn't have to worry it could be cancelled."

Knight Rider is fine and would have done better if it didn't have to go up against Lost and American Idol and Sam was not pointing anything to me except for the fact that he hated the show. I thought Knight Rider was better then his comments. We would not be worring about the possible cancellation if Knight Rider was hyped better and on a different night :mrgreen:

"The conecpt of the new show was wrong, and there are many ways it could have been better."

You are fine to believe that. I thought the concept was fine. I do believe that the show could have been improved as with any new show. :)

"This does not mean there is no one who liked it, but it was definitely a disappointment for me. Still I watched and I want it to go on, I want it to improve. The last four episodes were a step into the right direction. But looking back it was not the show I hoped for after watching the pilot movie.

I can respect what you say here and see that we differ on comments and feelings here. It was not a dissapointment to me and I do agree that the final four to five episodes great and a good way to get back to the original. Looking back for me the show was fine and not a disappointment. I will admit that it kind of got off track from the pilot movie but, over all it was a good show I too want to see the show back and succeed. :kittside:

I am sorry here that I don't agree with you all here but, I just wanted to offer my thought to the topic. I am fine and not upset. :kitt2:

Thanks and take care,

I Didn't like this version at all, the only stuff was good are the two episodes, otherwise, I'm sticking to the original.

CALM DOWN!!!


Let's be patient a day or so, and then we can either all be happy, or sad. It will be a cut and dry moment, one way or another.

Notice that I'm not going into a tirade about my feelings on this matter. I'm going to wait until the show is picked up or dropped. Then I'll say my peace. I suggest you do the same.

i know this is about Knight Rider, but THANK GOD!!!!!!!
i'm so darn happy we'll get new episodes of Chuck!!! it is such a great show.

now if only NBC renewed Knight Rider as well... though Knight Rider isn't even close to Chuck in quality it has huge potential. GST or propably better another producer would just have to recollect the values that made the original show great in the 80's!

i still hope for KI3T, Mike Knight, Sarah Graiman as the mechanic and Michael Knight in the leader (devon) role. leave the SCC and go back to the Knight Mansion, add in a mobile HQ (Semi) and some decent stories!

I'm REALLY hoping the show gets renewed tomorrow. Despite it's flaws, it was 1 of only 2 prime time shows that I looked forward to watching every week(the other was Chuck). I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Starlog claims, Knight Rider is cancelled.

http://www.starlog.com/home/daily-news/ ... ones--more

All in all, the science fiction universe is doing better than we dared hope—just three casualities for certain so far (PUSHING DAISIES, KNIGHT RIDER, TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES), numerous renewals (FRINGE, DOLLHOUSE, CHUCK, SMALLVILLE, SUPERNATURAL, etc.) and a bunch of new series.

And I like to add: I don't believe anything until it's official.
Other shows (I forgot which one and can't find the link anymore) have been renewed because of the good DVR ratings, so Knight Rider still has a chance. It was always among the top 10 DVR shows.

This has probably been noted ad nauseum here, but did anyone notice that Knight Rider is missing from the NBC.com shows list and from the Prime time list on my.nbc.com? I know that's not definite information or anything, but Scrubs is still there and that's an ABC show now...

I already don't watch NBC. I only watched it before for Knight Rider.

NBC would be very stupid if don't give the show a second season. They can't start something, built it up, then go never-mind we don't want it. NBC is just miss- managed bull. They need to get it together. :evil:

They've got some interesting programmes coming up, better to boycott anything by GST - movies, series, DVDs etc. After all, it was NBC which wanted the programme back to what it was meant to be and GST didn't want the reboot which happened for the last five. It's his fault we ended up with something which was NOT Knight Rider at the beginning and which made people turn off.

And Knight007, it was the 19th, today, which they gave as their date.
