I think the mustang was a horrible choice as the next kitt..

I personally think that the C6 Z06 would have been an awesome replacement for its predecessor..

Here's a chop I did to see how it'd look, I so wish they chose this.. lol

I thought the show was cool enough. Better than anything else on anyways.



Anyone watch Las Vegas? The Hotel shots were all at the Montecito. Even the chips were from the other show. Pretty cool.

The show is pretty cool as far as the technological side goes. The storyline could definitely use a little work as well as the acting. Seriously, the acting is horrible!!

Not bad. I just wish they would have MORE commercials during the show. Damn NBC...

I dunno, it was a HUGE let down for me. Where was Turbo Boost? I wish he also said what he used to do before he did it i.e. Knight Mode engaged or something...I dunno, this might sound dumb but I feel that the "magic" of the original show was gone...the movie seemed rushed and kinda choppy. My biggest gripe was CGI. There really was no need for it to have as much CGI as it did...plus it was a bad job. I also wanted to see the car fall out of the truck I always thought that was badass....on the flipside, at least when Michael drives KITT it's a stick...lol

A futuristic car still uses a stick and clutch?

I watched Night Rider. There was too much CGI for the Mustang and there were too much Ford cars on the road. Yeah, it was pretty fake.

Def worth seeing. I wathed the original series growing up, and I think most of hte people here are forgetting how much of a cheese factor the original was. Auto tranny'd trans am? leather pants and black denim? "turbo boost" which wasn't a turbo...


This show carried the legacy's water pretty well. I'll watch it again. Plus, dropping KITT out of the C-130 instead of a tractor trailer was sick.

Its always nice to here the theme song, but the drama cry scenes were retarded... Story line definetly needed some work and don't like the voice of kitt. The car should of been a vette, some type of production model and not the stang they used. Interesting where they put the light in... I'll watch it again and hope the series gets better as it goes... Even David's part was retarded!

Voice of Kitt is Val Kilmer! I dug it.


I wonder if they'll have a KARR re-appearance? I saw the dissasembled pieces of KITT in Graiman's garage. It's be sweet if they made a KARR2 to fight KITT2

The scenes i use to like the most about knight rider was when KITT was coming out of the trailer, now they have in coming out of a airplane, and the 180 thing that KITT use to do is kinda fake. You see the car come out of the airplane, and then i just stops and starts off with a burnout.

And by the way, In the old episodes Michael use to talk to KITT thru a watch,now he talks with a bluetooth device. LMAO...

I think they need to fix a couple of the scenes and not look so FAKE. One of the reasons we use to love this show was because we actually believe it was possible to have a car that would do this in the future.

I was waiting for the action to begin. When it looked like it was about to start - the film ended.
Kind of Disney style. So it must be for kids. Dont expect to much action and stunts.
Most strange scene is in Vegas. He just leave the money on the table and go with the girl. He knows nothing at this time. And his freind is about to get killed if he dont come up with the money.

Exactly, going from a watch to bluetooth is like a step back imo.

As I mentioned, that was a huge problem for me. I can't stadn the use of cheap looking backgrounds.
