Anyone else catch the two hour long Ford commercial… um, I mean, pilot for the new Knight Rider? It was on Sunday on NBC.

 

Well, although a bit corny, and the first hour being a ho-hum yawn fest, it wasn’t too bad. I would not mind if this Knight Rider movie leads to a new series… but WHY a FORD Mustang as KITT??????? And the shameless self-promoting Ford promos? At least GM didn’t shove the Trans AM down our throats through the original series and during the commercial breaks. GM let the car speak for, and sell, itself... so to speak, and that was advertisement enough. I guess Ford must be desperate for sales or something, that’s how it comes across to me.

 

Anyway, it just does not seem right to have KITT be anything other than a Trans Am. If I could make any change I wanted to the new upcoming series, other than a less corny script, the only thing I would change is to trash the Mustang and put KITT back into a Trans Am… which, depending on the year, was a much cooler looking car. So, I guess we have to convince GM/Pontiac to start making Trans Ams again.

Even as a Mustang owner, I agree.  I didn't see the show but K.I.T.T should be a TransAm.

It is just WRONG any other way

The new Knight Rider series will premier on September 24, 2008 on NBC. The show’s timeslot will be Wednesdays at 8PM (eastern and pacific time).

 

From the article I read, it sounds like they are making some changes from the pilot movie, such as bringing K.I.T.T.’s ability to turbo boost back. It did seem odd that the new K.I.T.T could not turbo boost.

 

Anyway, here is wishing them success… and good storylines.
