Knight Rider

So who else is glad they took the hideous double wing off of the new K.I.T.T.? It was on the original promo pic and hopefully they don't decide to put it on later. But it is a bad ass looking car...

Thoughts on the show?

It seems to me that Hollywood has been at a real loss for original material...they've gone back to the well so to speak for a while now.

There is nothing else on TV and I'm doing laundry and packing for vacation. The little attention I am paying to the show says....weak acting; weak material. No suprise.

And apparantely a Ford Edge crossover can keep up with a modified Mustang KR on a mountian road. LOL

They did use the double wing right after the chase scene it went super pursuit.

It is not awful It is exactly what I thought it would be.

Bad acting, but the car and the theme music kicked ass, brought back memories from my childhood. They also re-proved the myth buster stunt at the end .

a better ending would have been if sonny originally said not interested in being the new driver and mommy gets killed because of it. daddy comes home and tracks down his wife's killers and in the process gets the trans am blown to pieces (again) and killed himself. on his deathbed he asks sonny to carry on the good fight.

I hope the show doesn't rely too much on special effects and CGI shots to make up for the weak writing and lame acting.

Anybody else notice that the first 45 minutes wasn't in HD? I was thinking that this show is doomed since they're not even spending the money to have a heavily sponsored new show in HD format, but then after a commercial break they finally shifted it from a SD to HD format.
