    Knight Rider 2008

    Just been reading the Terminator Sarah Connor thread. Caught the tail end of it last night... from what I saw, it looked quite watchable.

    Certainly more so than Knight Rider, which I watched the other night and is mentioned in the Termy thread...

    I'm sorry, I so desperately wanted to like it. But it's utter toss! I appreciate that Knight Rider was / is ultimately about the car, but... it's like they've pinned everything on the car and there's nothing else there! No character, no soul, no fun... poor old KITT sounds like he's been lobotomised, thanks to Val Kilmer!

    If the pilot is anything to go by, it's doomed

    Agreed it's utter toss, but so was the oiginal Hoff version

    ....but being toss is part and parcel of Knight Rider IMO

    Sarah Connor Chronicals get much better as the series progresses tho

    Yeh, I guess. But at least you could chuckle at the quality cheese in the Hoff version

    I am also following the SCC and I do like it. As for KR, I thought it was ok. It has only just started, give it some time

    alot of people are slating KR , i loved the old series and i will agree this new series is different but i actually really liked it .. its more of a believable kitt rather than one that can undo padlocks via a com link or change dice via a com link and never did explain where all the cameras he could see were from .... this new kitt is alot more dont want to use the word basic .. but more like a bond car and i think will grow in time and if it does continue i think we will see more features as we go on. but in all honest to many people are slating it and thinking to much like the old series and i think it will be axed

    my two pence .. im saying look at it as a fresh modern perspective and give it time to grow

    Regards

    I thought the new Knight rider was ok. Liked the way they gave the theme tune an overhaul while still leaving it recognisable at the start.
    And the new voice is far less camp than the old one.

    Like it or not, it can't be argued that it was miles better than the TV movie Knight Rider 2000 in the Red Amphibious Car.

    when are they gonna remake the A team though?

    And Streethawk...


    Airwolf anyone???

    I have to say i liked KR sat and watched it the other night and it kept me watching, not sure about the new voice for kitt though would of been good to keep the original, although suppose new car new "future" upgrades type of thing. Would be good if the original was played in there though as at the begining it did show a few references to the 2000 model :-)
