Wasn't this already done, aka Knight Rider 2000 the series, and Viper the series? Lame...
I called it. I don't know if I really like the sounds of this, though. One article I've read quotes the producer as basically saying "Transformers did so well that we think people would be interested in a show about a shape-shifting car."
I think that, like Battlestar Gallactica, KR is a series that could be re-imagined a little darker and more serious. I don't think darker and more serious would include a shape-shifting car, but I could be wrong.
There wasn't a Knight Rider 2000 series. There was a Knight Rider 2000 movie that was pretty much shot as a pilot for a series but wasn't picked up. There was also a Knight Rider 2010 that was part of the "Action Pack" which was a collection of serial action movies shown in syndication. And in 1997-8 was also Team Knight Rider.
Viper didn't have any actual intelligence, just a fast car with a lot of gadgets and the ability to drive itself.
It's still lame.
Of the post-Knight Rider creations, KR2000 was probably the best and most faithful to the original series. Yeah, they killed off Devin in it, and Michael Knight was horribly out of character (and was thankfully written out in the end), but other than that, it still had a person and their intelligent car, on behalf of the Foundation for Law and Government.
Since then, they've gotten progressively worse, so I have zero confidence, particularly since other articles have said they're including a "transformer" element to the car.
So NBC/Universal has re-imagined BattleStar Galactica, Bionic Woman, and now Knight Rider.
Does anyone else wish they would just imagine some good new stuff rather than sitting in the 1970's 80's section of the archive and pulling old shows out?
Michael Knight did NOT have a mullet.
Clearly they meant to say Afro.
Great i have lived damn near my entire life with Michael Knight references and now i must continue. Last name is Knight. I should sue them for pain and suffering.
What, no Forever Knight references?
Its huge in Germany
So was Hitler!
Land of the Lost anyone? I would love to see Sleestaks redone.
No but plenty of Monty Python references. So much that i refuse to watch it. Never have never will/
It was done a very long while back.
Started the story all over again, with new actors.
Nothing to write home about.
And that's exactly my point. Most of these shows are great in nostalgia, but not as much when they are "re-imagined."
The re-imagining fad has to end, this is a major creative rut when no new ideas create their own nostalgia.
I remember when I was a kid I used to watch, no wait I was twenty, blah I mean it was remade again when I was fourty!!!!
Answering my own post. Looks like there is one in the making
To make this show a success, the Hoff needs to do the voice for Kit.
