September 2004 Archives

For years Knight Rider Archive has been a vital destination to any fan of Knight Rider. With detailed episode descriptions, early drafts of scripts and an appreciation of Knight Rider above many, it constantly is a gem of the community. Up until recently it was offline, as it's creator Paul worked to move it onto it's own server after the free host it had been online decided to take over with popup adds.

To celebrate the 22nd anniversary of Knight Rider, Knight Rider Archive has relaunched at it's own domain (finally!): knightriderarchive.com!

From the original thread:

For Everyone:

Unveiling the new and improved Knight Rider Archive -- now at www.knightriderarchive.com -- update your bookmarks!

It's been a long time coming, but the Knight Rider Archive now has its own domain. To celebrate its new home, and Knight Rider's 22nd Anniversary, I've started afresh with a big update, and I've also tidied the site up a little bit here and there. I hope nobody is disappointed!

That's all for now. I'll be uploading some new stuff every two months (scripts, articles, etc. -- going bi-monthly should ensure that there is always something new to go online), but I am also putting together a news section dedicated to interviews and info about the new movie. When that's up and running, there will also be updates whenever there's something new to add!

A new design will be unveilled soon!

Keep Riding!!
