    Compared to the entire series?
    Or the Knight Rider (Original) Pilot ?

    Ridgway,...
    I enjoyed it. It was a typical NBC leave your brain at the door, movie of the week, but entertaining. I own a new Mustang so I'm glad they chose an American classic instead of some GM garbage.

    I think he was making a joke, comparing last night's show to the old TV show, "My Mother the Car".

    I hadn't seen this link so as I listed to KITT throughout the movie, I kept wondering was that Kilmer's voice.

    Glad to know my instincts were correct ... :)


    cheers

    Considering the state the writers strike put pilot development in for Fall 08, I think this has a very good chance of getting picked up by NBC or SciFi.

    I liked it. I loved the original, I was a kid then. I wonder if a few episodes have already been made?!? With anticipation that NBC would say "yes" to the series? I HOPE SO!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, I was...that was the joke with the original series. I guess people don't remember "My Mother the Car" anymore.
    I didn't get to see the movie last night...I'll catch the replay on the 23rd though.

    I saw bits and pieces and what I saw looked promising enough that I'll watch the entire movie later.

    They switched to the nanotech technology. No more molecular bonding. It was probably an either-or choice.. IF such a thing were real, you'd probably opt for the nanotech as it adds so many other features as well... also, in the context of the show the "secret" formula for that bonding was stolen a couple of times so they probably needed something better anyway.

    I sure wish the car would have done more. They should have used the turbo boost button to jump over the Denali instead of driving around it :D

    I will need to see when this replays so I can set it up to record!

    I already have a favorite line from it, and I haven't even seen it!

    The whole "Monogamy isn't natural."

    Couldn't agree more, and thought it was awesome that the line was there! (Don't even know what it was in reference too!)

    KITT wasn't operational at that time. They didn't boot him up until they came to a stop. It's a good thing KITT doesn't take as long as the HR20 to boot up.:lol:

    Maybe, but I thought at the end they said the encryption hadn't been broken.

    But yeah, most would find a human car chase more exciting.

    Those bad guys stole two things... Their main goal was stealing Prometheus (the government project), but they stole everything in the lab... and eventually figured out that they had the plans to the car as well as Prometheus.

    For whatever reason, it would appear KITT's stuff was not nearly so encrypted and protected as were the Prometheus hard drives... so the hackers got into the car specs and used that against the good guys to try and get them to give over access to Prometheus.

    I just watched it. Local NBC has DD issues so I had to watch it in 2.0.
    Besides that, I enjoyed the nostalgia ride, but a series based on a talking car in the 00's vs the 80's? I will watch, but I question the limitations of the actors to carry it.

    I loved it and hope it gets picked up by SOMEONE as a series. Even though the mind-candy part that has you check your reality at the door, there were two things that just bugged me. 1. You really mean to tell me that a super-tuned 550HP Mustang Shelby can't outrun a Ford Edge?? And 2. After SLIDING to a halt in front of the Denali, KITT suddenly became an immovable object....hmmmmm .

    But what the hell, let's do it again!!!

    I really liked this. Much Much better then the Team Knight Rider from a few years ago.
    It is what it is a Fun Show about a Super Duper Car.
    I would love it if they made it into a series.
