Knight Rider 1x04 "A Hard Day's Knight" - Discussion/Spoilers

From TV.com:

Mike finds himself poisoned during an undercover operation, which leaves him with only three hours to live before his nervous system shuts down. To procure the antidote, Mike must fake the assassination of a billionaire tech mogul.

There is a good chance this episode will be delayed due to an Obama special: http://gawker.com/5061369/obama-buys...s-knight-rider

How many times are writers going to play the "he's been poisoned and has X-hours to live" plot. Talk about tired, old, and unimaginative.

Our FBI lady has decided to make an appearance. I was afraid they'd have to get rid of Poitier.

Obama should have aired that special tonight right before the debate.

It looked like Mike put two contact lenses in the same eye when he was in the washroom.

Re: Knight Rider 1x04 "A Hard Day's Knight" - Discussion/Spoilers

I missed the first 10 minutes because I was expecting the show to get preempted for the debate. So to whoever said last week that it would, I offer a hearty "Go screw yourself."

While I enjoyed the episode, it also highlighted a lot of the stuff that the series is getting wrong. I realize it's the 21st century and ensemble casts are de rigueur, but when the star spends half of the show's last third either dead or comatose, it's not really a great thing.

I was chatting with Kass tonight on IM about this episode, and while we both agreed that the cast needed to be pared down, we couldn't really figure out who, apart from Poitier. Billy and Zoe would be good candiates, except that their banter is sometimes the most entertaining thing in the episode. Maybe if they cut back the KITTcave stuff even more, and tried to keep it centered on Michael, Sarah and KITT out in the field...

I gave this one an "average," in large part because of the deficiencies compared to the classic KR episode it was ripping off.

Next week's looks like fun, though the paramilitary group Michael has to infiltrate will mean I'll be rewatching the classic first season eppy "Inside Out" so I can look for obvious ripoff moments.

Debate was a scheduled event. Why would it get pre-empted?



My DVR failed me again tonight. I've obviously some conflicts that isn't allowing KR to get recorded.

Zoe would probably be the first to go since the actress isn't part of the main cast credits.

NBC was considering showing a dateline special about Obama.

I have a question... Did KITT turn into a van? The first two or three minutes didn't have my full attention. It looked like Mike and that guy got into a van and it turned into KITT's car mode.

Also, they should be making better use of Bruce Davison. He hasn't done much since the pilot.
