We've dug up the putrified remains of everything else. No superheroes left?! Fuck a Doug Liman trying to bring that shit back. You know why? Cuz nobody has the swagger, the charisma, bragadouchiobag and the fierce chesthair that the 'Hoff has. That's why.

What's Al Qaeda compared to Garthe Knight? Fuck Blackwater USA. That's right, give me Knight Industries. Pfft.

i don't see how they can remake Knight Rider. GM doesn't make the Trans Am anymore. and using the old skool Trans Am just won't cut it for Hollywood.

either KITT is going to be all CGI or they're going to substitute it with some other lame GM car, like the Cadillac XLR.

Given the progressiveness of the American culture, they'll probably use a Hummer with Arnold Schwarzenegger or Stone Cold Steve Austin to voice it.

I don't think kids are going to be to impressed with a talking car after seeing Transformers. Those things were cars/robot/ass kicking machines.

What the world really needs is "Hannibal" "Face" "B.A. Baracus" and "Howling Mad Murdock."

We need the A-TEAM!

Yes, but with a Bizarro-world racial reversal. B.A. Baracus would be white while everyone else is black.

Morgan Freeman=Hannibal
Jamie Foxx=Face
Martin Lawrence=Murdock
??????=B.A. Baracus

Isn't that what The Unit is?

Does anyone remember that TV show Street Hawk? It was like Knight Rider but with a motorcycle. I think it aired around the same time as Airwolf or Knight Rider.

Alright! Saw it last night and it wasn't so bad. Followed the formula of the original series. I actually like the new KITT. The voice of KITT is Val Kilmer. Ah and I don't know why they had to put in that once scene of the fbi agent with her bootycall using her "lick her" license. LOL! honestly, that's the one scene that stood out to me. hahaha!

I tried to watch the whole thing, just to see the Hoff cameo at the end. But I was on the phone, so I had it on mute and ended up missing most of the 2nd half surfing between this and the NBA AllStar game. I think the T-1000 liquid metal crap is so over. At least when old KITT had Emergency Braking System and Super Pursuit Mode, actual panels and mechanical crap had to pop out. It was more inventive that way. American Gladiator was so much better. Wow, what a flashback Sunday!

My friend works on the show, and I promised her I would Tivo it and let it play to help with ratings so she could keep her job. I thought I'd be an even better friend and actually watch it.

I don't think I'll be doing that again.

I told her the Asian chick had really bad hair and someone needed to be fired. She said it was extensions that she got without approval after she was already booked for the show.

Terrible. Acting was worse than her hair though. LOL speak on television is totally gross.

It got better, but was it enough to save it? I don't think so. Maybe if they stick it on Fridays when no one is home, but playing crap like howie do it is probably cheaper to produce. It's even more unlikely with NBC going the two hours of programming a night (minus leno) route. I'll miss it but only because of the girl eye candy
