February 2003 Archives

Patricia McPherson ("Bonnie") has placed her acting career on hold while she fights an urban development project in one of the last remaining natural environments in Los Angeles.

At her site at www.saveballona.org you can find out more about the work she is doing. You can also watch the video "Greed, Gridlock and Gas" to see her explain some of the specific tasks.

The orginization is also accepting tax-deductible donations using PayPal or a credit card. It's a great way to show Patricia how together we can all make a difference.

Mike Pajaro has more information about the cause on his site at teamknightrider.com. Shortly he will have an area on his website giving a good overview of the cause.

there is a search feature that exists on this board, but it had been lost in between revisions. until I get it back on the template, you can search the whole site here:

Beinging Monay March 3rd, Bravo will begin showing Knight Rider reruns. They have extended their broadcast hours, making room for our favorite show. The show will air at 11:10am and 4:20pm.

Thanks to jgcoombes for the scoop.

david's hasselhoff's website was updated yesterday with news on the motorcycle crash which happened this weekend.

"HASSELHOFF, WIFE IN MORTOCYLCE CRASH Los Angeles (AP) -- David Hasselhoff and his wife suffered broken bones when the actor lost control of the motorcyle they were riding and hit a sidewalk curb, police said. Strong gusty winds were blamed for the crash, which occured about 3pm on a busy street on the city's West Side, said police Sgt. Christopher Kuntz of the West Los Angeles traffic division. The crash threw Hasselhoff against a light pole, while he wife, actress Pamela Bach, fell onto the shoulder of the road. Both were wearing helmets, Kuntz said. They were taken to UCLA Medical Center, where Hasselhoff, 50, was treated for possible lower back fractures, a broken rib and cuts and bruises, Kuntz said. Bach, 39, was treated for a fractured ankle and broken wrist. "They're in stable condition and will probably go home tomorrow," said Warren Cowan, a publicist for Hasselhoff. The accident caused Hasselhoff to cancel trips and interviews to promote the upcoming Fox movie "Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding," Cowan said. "

in this weeks TV Guide, with Nia Vardalos on the cover (who happens to be the voice of Domino in TKR) they have a feature on the Baywatch Wedding. They have synopsis on the different actors in the series, David's is of interest:

David Hasselhoff: It's been three years since he played Mich Buchannon, during which time he made his Broadway debut in "Jekyll & Hyde." On the personal front, he went through a dark period with an alchol problem so serious he drank himself into an emergency room in Rancho Mirage, California. Hasselhoff, 50, finally "hit rock bottom," he says, and checked himself into the Betty Ford Clinic. He says confronting his problem "was a blessing." After Hawaiian Wedding, he'll help produce a movie based on his 1980s series, Knight Rider. He's also working on a new album. "Everything is falling into place," says Hasselhoff, "now that I'm taking care of myself."

According to a search on Tvguide.com, David will be appearing on Conan O'Brien on February 26th, for what I am sure is an appearance to support the upcoming Baywatch movie. (if it isn't a repeat episode that is). Guests also scheduled to appear are: Jack and Kelly Osbourne. Music guest: The Chieftains.

According to tvguide.com, David will be appearing on the Wayne Brady show February 28th. This is a syndicated daytime talk show which tends to appear on ABC affiliates at 10am.

Just a reminder that the Baywatch movie special staring David Hasselhoff, airs on Fox February 28th, thats 10 days from now. Be sure to check your local listings!

This months issue of FHM magazine (the US edition) has a big feature on Baywatch. It shouldn't be hard to find on the news stands, just look for the one with Pamela Anderson, Carmen Electra and Yasmine Bleeth on it.

Inside there is a five page article with David Hasselhoff where the writers spent 12 hours with him talking Knight Rider to Baywatch and a whole lot more. It a very interesting read for all DH fans. There is also vintage photos that accompany it to boot.

Be sure to check it out.

On February 7th, David updated his website. Once again there isn't any new info on Knight Rider, all in good time I am sure.

"February 7 , 2003….Message from David: The "Still Standing" taping went really well. It should be a very funny episode if I do say so myself--remember to tune in on February 17th on CBS. We're off to catch the Rolling Stones in Las Vegas this weekend-should be a blast...more updates soon, so check back! Love, David."

Futher down the news area, there are some updates on David's appearances

"Also in the U.K., soap opera actor Dan Paris (Neighbours) told a radio station there that Revolution Studios is considering going with an unknown in their big-screen version of Knight Rider and may cast him in the role instead of Vin Diesel, whose name has been bandied about. So reports Miss Ticketstub. Thanks, fellow scoopers and movie fans!"

Thanks to Paul of the Knight Rider archive for the find.

In issue #695 on page 65 there is a paragraph with Hasselhoff about his February guesting on CBS TV, no Knight Rider mention but there is a pretty picture:

AND SO ON... Four years after Baywatch faded into the sunset, David Hasselhoff is Still Standing! Lieut. Mitch Buchannon's alter ego will play a nurturing hair-dresser whom Bill (Mark Addy) and Judy (Jami Gertz) fight over in a Feb. 17 episode of CBS' Monday-night comedy.

In November of last year, game developer Davilex released Knight Rider: The Game for PS2 and PC platforms. This game was only released in Europe, and a North American release was not to happen until Q1 2003.

News in January broke about Tri Synergy picking the PC version of the game to release states side. This version should be available for purchase March 24th. But news about the PS2 version didn't come.

Now, halfway into Q1 still with no official announcement, North American fans waiting for the game are beinging to wonder if a release will ever happen. I spoke to the folks at Tri Synergy to ask if they had any plans in releasing the PS2 version. This is what they had to say:

"Thanks for your inquiry. There is an outside chance that we will be doing the PS2 version, however Sony has not yet approved it for North America...if and when they do we will make it available."

Lets keep those fingers crossed.

David's website was updated friday, no Knight Rider info alas:

"January 31, 2003?.Message from David: Greetings from my trailer at CBS Studios. I am making a guest appearance on the sit-com, "Still Standing," starring Jami Gertz and Mark Addy -- watch for it on CBS February 17th. Rehearsals have been fun and it will be a great episode! I'll let you know what shows to look out for as we start to publicize "Baywatch Hawaiian Wedding" on Fox February 28th. Until then, Keep Smilin'! Love, David"

First mention goes to knightimmortal.

my heart goes out to the family and loved ones of those who were lost today in the pursuit of exploration.
