Knight Rider given a one-month reprieve....

Postby Omphalos » Mon Oct 13, 2008 5:55 pm

....before the axe falls on this piece of shit.

Now Ill be perfectly frank here. I love watching this thing with my boy. We watched the pilot together and he yelled out loud "this is the coolest thing I have ever seen in my life!" Looking at that half-naked babe in the pilot, I agreed a bit. But the show is complete shit otherwise. It was one tired cliche after the other, and never became anything but a sorry copy of other crappy shows. But, someone at NBC may have some hope, because they have ordered four more scripts.

I don't even give it that long.

I don't even like the fucking car.

Didn't see anything more than the ads for it while home, but my impression was, if you've seen Transformers, why bother?

I didn't care for the original so I've never watched the new show.

Your kids would probably love it, Freak. Nicky-boy was beside himself with glee, watching Kitt transform and talk.

I hope they get a chance to introduce K.I.T.T.'s evil twin, K.A.R.R., before it gets cancelled. They have already introduced Michael Knight's amnesia, and the possibility of his evil twin already.
