Hey Folks, you remember that tv show back in the 80′s Knight Rider, and that car named KITT. Although i was a young kid, i remember back in the nineties i used to rush home and watch it on TV. Remember when Micheal pressed the “Turbo Boost”, button and the car would fly over other cars? wow. That tv show was a classic.
So I found out that there was a newer version made, because this was one of my favourite childhood tv shows, i decided to buy the whole season off Itunes.
It was great I liked the ideas, I liked how they modernized the whole concept but there was one problem, I think they messed up on the writing and the direction of the tv show, it got cancelled. Not untill I watched the whole season, I realised why they did. But I really hope they resurrect it, because it was a nice enjoyable concept show.
I liked the new features of KITT, like attack mode, where he transforms, and then when he is in off-road mode whereas he transformed into a F150.
I think another problem contrasting the old one with the new one, in the old one every thing they did was actually possible and could happen in real life, and I think they were too fictional in the new one.
I don’t see how it would be possible to transform a mustang into a F150…
The other thing is, they should have ended the season when KITT destroyed KARR, and then started with a fresh concept or where they continued in season 2. After Dr. Graiman and Alex Torres died, there was no more mystery in the show anymore. NBC should contact me and have me write a new treatment for them. For the original fans of Knight Rider, and the New Fans, and the disappointed fans, they need to bring it back to the drawing books and revive it.
