    It was over all a good show. Anyone else notice that it was bias to Ford??? I wonder how much they payed for that???

    Is it cheesy though? If so, how much cheese is involved?

    The new Knight Rider was a very enjoyable show to watch outside of the acting of the FBI agent. Even though most people are going to think it didn't cut it, it actually did. The new car was awesome. I thought the show did everything it needed to do to get a season going. It even did a good job getting past references in there. Lets hope for a season go KITT.

    I was very pleased with the new Knight Rider. Did anyone notice the old KITT in the garage before the thugs discovered the Mustang? Nice homage...

    I thought the new effects on the car repairing itself (when it was damaged) were excellent. This was a much better take on KITT's damage resistance than the older version that had bullets just bouncing off the windows and glass, etc. But of course, that was a long time ago. KITT's morphing was also excellent.

    The music was good as well; from the opening new take on the old theme, to the songs played throughout. I think I may have even heard White Stripes in there?? Good stuff.

    A couple of cheesy dialogue scenes, but not enough to take away from my overall positive impression on a quality MFTV movie.

    Sadly, I think the movie's weakest points were the acting by Justin Bruening (Mike Traceur) and Sydney Tamiia Poitier (Agent Rivai). I wouldn't go as far as to say they ruined the show, but some of their parts were distracting.

    Overall I give it a solid B. Great special effects, surprisingly interesting storyline, Cameo by the Hoff, and one hell of an awesome car. I think Kilmer was actually very good as KITT.

    Also, no matter what you think about GM vs. Ford, etc, etc...you cannot deny (in my opinion) the coolness of that KR. OK...maybe I'm biased being a Ford fan... ;)

    Sure I liked the original TA from which KITT was originally based, but hey...I also liked Bumblebee as a VW as was OK with the Camaro switch. I also would have rather seen Jazz as a Porsche...but we live in an era of marketing dictatorship. It's just something we have to deal with. You can blame it all on BMW pushing for the James Bond film to be a commercial for their new Z3 (I'm not a Bond fan, so I cannot tell you which one it was...Goldeneye, perhaps?). Even I know that the Aston Martin DB5 was Bond's car...and wouldn't it have been nice to see the new DB7 in that movie? Instead, Bond fans were stuck with a little four-cylinder roadster to replace an iconic English sports car.

    Oh well....back to Knight Rider. They've got my attention with this new version; I want to see another episode.

    And now you know.
    And knowing is half the battle.

    Cheers
