    Have they relaunched the series successfully, or was this a very sad mistake?

    So far so good, but we're only 1/2 way thru. I was the perfect age for the original Knight Rider. I like that they paid homage to the original Kitt with the dismantled pieces in the garage. I also like that they aren't trying to recreate the original, but have taken it into a whole new direction. I'll be waiting for the series.

    Better double check on that.

    I think it's SATURDAY when they'll do the repeat showing, not Sunday.

    I think they are trying for a record amount of commercials in a 2 hour show.

    I enjoyed the first hour of it, but then I caught up to real time and decided to surf for a while. :D A little campy at times, but I watched enough of the original as a kid to spark my interest today.

    I'm really annoyed at the local station that has to drop to standard def. to run the stupid weather delay text crawls. Do we really need to do that 50% of the time?:rolleyes:

    Not bad. Nowhere near the level of cheese of the original, which is probably good. But, I will say that, if it were standing on it's own, I wouldn't give it the time of day. Since it's "Knight Rider", I'll watch.

    But the plane at the end? I was getting serious TKR vibes--and those vibes are never, ever good.

    Ugh. Bad. This makes the original seem like Shakespeare compared to this.

    KITT as a mustang was the LEAST objectionable part of this crapfest.

    I'd rather watch Team Knight Rider than this, and that's saying a lot.

    Depending on the ratings tonight and during the repeat, it will either be a series or not. They want it to be a series but if the ratings are not there it will not become a series. I liked it, there some parts that were kind of slow and then they had enough commercials in it to make a series from them. I recorded it but ended up watching it live since nothing else was on. I think it could make for a good series but that plane bit was a bit too much like team knight rider. I like the chamelon effect of the car.

    Anyone know why the mustang had a cobra symbol on it? They used to have a mustang emblem on them. I thought the cobra was a different model.

    I liked it. Its kinda hard to get use to KITT being a Mustang. I wouldn't mind it being picked up as a series. I really thought they did a good job casting the new voice of KITT.

    I liked it. I would definitely watch a new series...

    One thing I appreciated is that they didn't get too carried away with the morphing...

    Val Kilmer? ehhh I think their first choice would have been better, but he'll do.

    Good show and I would watch it if it becomes a series

    Local paper today said KITT was voiced by Val Kilmer? Can anyone confirm? Originally it was to be Will Arnett of Arrested Development, but that a last minute switch occurred.
