KITT

If you were a kid like me growing up in 1980’s you would undoubtedly recall the TV series “Knight Rider” and “KITT”. Back then we thought it was the best TV program and of course the coolest car ever! I even recall people fixing the signature “moving red light” onto the hood of their vehicles to give it that KITT look. It didn’t matter what their vehicles were; cars, vans, lorries, trishaws, and even the good ‘ol push-bikes.

Well, guess what? Knight Rider is back, but without David Hasselhoff (thank God for that). It is supposed to be a new made-for-TV movie. The best part is it has got even a cooler KITT – a still-to-be-released Black Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. The word is, it has got a supercomputer that can hack into almost any system, an even better weapons system than it’s predecessor (guess the flamethrower is still in then), AI,… and get this – it has nanotechnology giving it the ability to shape-shift. WOW! It is the best car ever!

I’m sure I got you all interested in it now. So check it out.

Some of my favorite TV dramas those days were "Knight Rider", "Street Hawk", "V", "Robin Hood"

Remember Automan? There was a thing called "Cursor" which could transform to any object when needed. It was also cool.

Knight Rider was cool man!! The new car looks real nice, don't fancy the double spoilers though.

This movie sucked; kind of got the feeling, looking at an ATM machine (BAD Horror Movie)

Really? Sucked?.. maybe it should be watched in the spirit of Charle's Angles movies. Y’know, let some things slide and tolerate the obvious mistakes. Has anyone got a good quality DVD of this by any chance?

Got hold of a DVD. I apologize to Asanka for doubting him on this. Yes, it was just cheesy. I still loved the car though…. it looked hot! But the movie had no story at all. I hear they are making new Batman, Terminator and Hellboy movies to be released this year.
