    As long as it isn't Gilbert Gottfried!!!

    To borrow an idea from Odyssey 5, they should change to a female voice. They could call her KITTen or KITTy! :) (I now OWN that idea by the way!)

    I think in one episode, KITT switched to a female voice for a line or two and it freaked everyone out.

    If I remember correctly, they were describing human relationships to KITT as if KITT was a boy, and KITT responded in a female voice, (paraphrased) "I'm just a computer with a synthesized voice. I could just as easily use a female voice."

    Well I'm glad I'm not the only person who watches Knight Rider. For purely nostalgic reasons, I am compelled to watch it. I grew up on this show and feel an odd connection to it.

    I will be the first to agree that it's cheesy and that the reboot was severely needed. Additionally, the KARR storyline was way too short. They could have dragged that out to a two-part episode and then have him as a recurring character like in the original series. The show is really hit and miss... but I'll admit it's mostly 'miss'. Every once in a while a decent episode airs that gets me sucked back in.

    I'm hoping this reboot works and the show finds an audience. I won't stop watching it until it's canceled. How embarrassing!!

    As "dead" as a robot that was in a plane that exploded can be.

    Carrollton,...
    I'm sure KITT's nanobots transformed his Radio Shack leftovers processor back into the state of the art design.

    Given how ridiculous this show is... (and I admit, I like it, and I do watch it), I think they now ought to do a show where KITT (three thousand) meets the KR GPS unit...

    It wouldn't be out of place... and all the Knight Rider fans know about the GPS anyways. Just as a fun episode idea in a show that's fairly implausible anyhow.

    The show did miss a great opportunity to use William Daniels voice while KITT was sick. I like Val as well, it just would have been nice.

    They have a shot at it now.

    Even though the foundation is theirs now, there's still only 4 of them left.
    Before, there was a whole facility of people dedicated to KITT. That's now been reduced to 4. It wouldn't suprise me if KITT is somewhat reduced in power...even if they chalk it up to the radio shack chip

    It's gonna get lonely down there.

    I'm sure they can hire some good people to help them out.

    this show is becoming '24' like in some ways. But we cant discuss that here.

    I was VERY embarrassed to watch the fight scene. I dont care about editing or anything like that. But the line that about 'you must be assimilated' and i must kill you or whatever karr said was just terrible..pretty much anything that karr said made me cringe and i was feeling very awkward. I mean, what exec would sit in a boardroom and say wow yes this is exactly what i wanted! I felt like a 10 year old put his fantasy into reality on a tv show and wrote the lines. I dont even care that that bad guy did get swallowed up but admittedly that was somehow beyond what i would even expect on this show. Then just going thru the chest with kitt into karr....wow ..just didnt seem right at all in the context of how great/evil karr was supposed to be.

    I was more embarrassed watching that part of the show than the ep of kath and kim last night. That's pretty bad and quite a low bar to achieve. I'm glad we had a father/daughter/son moment though. Touching. He is our father etc. Everyone on this show deserves an award for not laughing as they are doing their lines.

    so for those familiar with planes, what red light goes on that means 100% death? do they call that the death light?

    And i want a computer like hers that counts out hundreds of millions for me like that :)

    You just reminded me, the guy got sucked into karrs chest and then kid drove right through him to blow karr up. Sure the guy died, BUT he looked to be unharmed otherwise.

    If you actually slow mo before that, the guy falls out of his chest when KITT used the grappling cable on KARR.
