Doug Liman, who made those Jason Bourne film watchable, will be producing. It sounds like it might not suck, but I said this about the new BIONIC WOMAN before I saw the first episode and IT sucks, so I'll hold my breath.

...sadly, David Hasselhoff is busy with his new show to be in it. Yeah, I'm sure that's the reason he will be giving shortly. (He really does have a new show, called TALES FROM THE HOFF on E!, but I'm guessing the new KNIGHT RIDER show will have nothing to do with him... sadly.)

Edited for clearity...and Roy.

If it somehow becomes successful, The Hoff should come back as Garthe, driving KARR. (iirc) Or at least some other cheesy, scene-chewing villain.

I don't like the trend of recycling television series, no doubt picked up from the movies. Although you can see the logic of taking a name/franchise people remember, with a built-in audience that will give you a head start toward success. Simplest thing in the world to re-create the old vibe for the fans, and profit. Look how well it's worked out with ECW.

Oh, wait...

Garth drove Goliath, the super truck made from the same stuff KITT was. Of course, Garth is dead inside of Goliath at the bottom of a cliff somewhere, but I have confidence they'll find a way to bring him back. KARR had no driver.

My big question: Does Mr. Feeney (William Daniels) do the voice of KITT again? I hope so.

I hope they ignore the travesty that was Knight Rider 2010, continuity-wise.

Liman only directed the first - and by all accounts the weakest - BOURNE movie. Paul Greengrass of UNITED 93 fame is responsible for the excellent SUPREMACY & ULTIMATUM.

Also, this is a terrible, awful idea.




To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow
