    This was one of my favourite TV series in the 80s. The remake was shown in USA just a few days ago.

    Here's the new KITT.

    The Mustang isn't really my cup of tea nor did it go down well with the existing fans. There's going to be things that are missing but I'm still looking foward to watching the new series.

    Not seen the new one yet, but nothing can replace the original KITT as knightrider I'm afraid, so this show is just banking on the original franchise.

    it got lots of bad reviews so i wasn't expecting anything but it wasn't that bad.

    lots of cheeeeezy moments, especially the hoff's cameo appearance.

    It thought for a remake of a classic tv show it was prety good plus it did have a few hints of the old knight rider in it. Plus they have left it open to add more bits about what Kitt is capable of.
    Not sure how long till the actual series starts but i will start to watch to see how it pans out.

    I think the Mustang would definitely look cool in films like Mad Max but for me it just won't do it here. I've watched the original Knight Rider on DVD last year. The original KITT is an icon in that series, I doubt anything will touch it.

    Surely it should have been a Skyline. It's got enough computing power already...

    Oh hang on, it's not a Yank Tank.

    I watched 40 mins out of the 2 hours before my sole was getting crushed. If you like bad acting, cheesy lines and woeful effects then this is for you. Don't waste your time. The original series pisses all over this.

    The live blog was pretty accurate and better than the show itself... http://www.autoblog.com/2008/02/17/knight-rider-the-liveblog/

    This being the pilot, I highly doubt a series would be commissioned. I hope not anyway.
