Knight Rider: The Laserdisc!

Post by Mechanicjay » Tue Dec 26, 2017 3:02 pm

Family came through for me on one my Christmas list items, Knight of the Juggernaut on freakin' Laserdisc:

There were only one or two episodes pressed to laserdisc, Japan only. The cover-art on this is just fantastic. The japanese subtitles burned into the video source is a little distracting, but who cares. This is like the perfect synthesis of two things I love. Knight Rider and Laserdiscs.

Cool item! Knight Rider being such a high tech show, it's been only a right thing to do to put even some episodes on the highest tech media available at the time, the Laserdisc :)

That's awesome! Any chance of a high-quality scan of that cover art that you could post, Jason?

I agree. A high quality scan of that cover would be awesome.

I will try to get to this today. The issue is that an LD cover is 12x12. My scanner can only do 8 1/2 x 14? I'll try grab just the art in the middle, so that I'm not trying to stitch an image together.

I can stitch it together if you want to do the whole thing....
