KITT Bits of the week

It's a given that we don't have enough people to cover everything Knight Rider - no matter how hard we try! Here are some stories we missed this week - or didn't get a chance to write about:

  • The Mio Knight Rider GPS that we've reviewed has been available for pre-order from Radio Shack. Members in our forum just began receiving their units yesterday.
  • Ford scores key placements in fall TV shows: "Taking a higher profile will be Ford's Shelby GT500KR in the new television series Knight Rider. In the show, the character of Michael Knight, played by actor Justin Bruening, teams up with the Shelby to fight criminal forces that operate above the reach of traditional law enforcement." [driving.ca]
  • David Boreanaz complains about Knight Rider as competition in the 8pm time slot: "Should I go down my list of overrated shows that are coming out? Knight Rider, please, don't give it a chance. Who cares about a car that can talk? I did - in the '80s." [digital spy]
  • Magazines SciFiNow, SFX Magazine and TVGuide all have articles on the new series in their latest issues. [Knight Rider Archive]
  • Autoblog also took KITT on a drive through Detriot, they also made this pretty entertaining video to complement it. [Autoblog]

  • Interviews from Comic Con are still being rolled out, even over a month and a half later. This interview with David Bartis talks about the new episodes: "But this is fun. It's something you can watch with your whole family. My kids happen to think this is the coolest thing I've ever done. They've never said that about anything I've ever done before" [KITTSite]
  • In an article on audience awearness of rookie shows, Variety says that more audiences are aware of the new Knight Rider series than any other new show so far. "More than 60% of viewers are aware that the action series is zooming back into primetime -- perhaps no surprise, given the talking car franchise's place in pop culture history." [Knight Rider Archive]
  • BuddyTV continues their time on the set with an interview with Yancey Arias: "As a child, Arias was a big fan of Knight Rider and other shows of that style, which helps to explain his love for and fascination with the technology of the series." [BuddyTV]
