"Billy leans how to take care of himself.."

Does that mean he is giving up on hooking up with the Asian chick?

It's probably how to make a meal that doesn't involve a fast food restaurant or a vending machine as well as washing his laundry.

In terrorism, having military experience is a good thing if you're planning to be around for a while.

Amen! Seriously does everyone with a Special Forces background get involved with terrorist groups or illegal weapons dealers. If they're looking for realistic bad-guys-of-the-week, they should use a middle eastern group or some ex-KGB dudes or something. It doesn't need to be all the time, but mix it in. I suppose portraying an Arab or Persian person as a bad guy is not PC.

This show has no shame when it comes to finding ways to get the actors out of their clothes.

^ Maybe we'll see it in two weeks on the new episode.

We finally have a KITT weakness.

Re: Knight Rider 1x05 "Knight of the Hunter" - Discussion and Spoilers

I'm really happy with this episode. Like "Hard Day's Knight" everything just came together very well. I was very happy to see Mike and KITT being the focus of the ep with Sarah and gang back at the SCC doing what they're supposed to do - support Mike but not take over his missions.

The interaction between KITT and Mike has definitely gone up a notch. KITT's developing sense of humor (dry as it is) and Mike's loyalty to him were expressed several times in the ep, and that's what we've been needing.

It was also fantastic to see a lot of practical driving and stunt work. Mike's dive onto the truck was excellent and worthy of the Knight Rider name. I felt a lot of genuine tension throughout the ep, and that too is a marked improvement.

In fact, I only have on minor nitpick, and it's one that has been present in all episodes so far. Why can't KITT open his doors by himself? I mean, it hardly ruins the episode for me, but every time Mike had to open the door I kept thinking that the illusion of KITT being a "real" functioning AI is partly sold by small details such as that. I recall KI2T opening his doors by himself many times, and it's something that not only shows the AI is "in the car", but also is an expression of the teamwork that he and Michael had. Still, I emphasize that this is minor and in no way severely impacted my enjoyment of the episode.
