KARR's appearance in KR 2008?

Post by Assasinge » Tue Aug 16, 2016 10:27 pm

Am I the only one who was disappointed that KARR didn't get the screentime he deserved? Like in TOS in both appearances they showed him so much doing crazy things, but in the new one all he does is appear with Torres for like 5 mins. then he gets destroyed by KITT in a "battle", which was really him just Turbo Boosting into KARR's chest or something.

You are correct, they took KITT's most formidable foe and flushed him down the toilet along with the KR franchise for decades to come. I'm not even sure how the K3000 destroyed KARR because at that time his nano tech wasn't functional and KARR's was.

Yeah, I remember NBC hyping the episode so much but he just gets destroyed in like 5 mins. NBC what a let down you guys are...

KARR...The Transformer. Erm...meh to that. After all, CG was very expensive in the past and I always thought their choice to go that route was a massive mistake. While there probably were a couple fans of this choice out there, I am most certainly with you on the fact that the 2008 KARR remains worthy of The Price is Right 'loser' tune.

Yeah, although the only CGI I was okay with was the attack mode one, but the other ones were simply unappealing, including KARR's.

I remember watching this episode excited and hoping it will be great. But unfortunately the battle didn't last long. If that was the case they could've just did a remake of Martin jantzen and k.r.o. (Which in my opinion tkr kros episode was better than that kr2008 episode.)But hey nbc screwed it up already making bad directions for the show.

I agree with James. If anything, that episode was probably one of my biggest disappointments. What was the issue with having KARR going around messing with people like he used to in TOS?
