Re: Knight Rider 1x15 - "Fly by Knight" - Discussion and Spoilers

I should probably know better, but when Michael and KITT started talking about an "old school" disguise, for a split second I thought he might actually transform into the original KITT.

Oh well, maybe next time.

I thought about that too at the time. Oh well...

Well, this retooling of the show looks good except on one point.
They seem to be determined to keep the girls dressed from now on. Shame...

I thought so too, but I don't think Ford would allow it. I was especially convinced because there seemed to be something in the air during those scenes that made it seem like the classic was coming. I should have anticipated a classic mustang though.

I wonder if it was intended as a homage to the KR2000 movie, or if was just a happy coincidence because of the new KITT being a Mustang...

KITT should power slide on to the stage when one of the contestants performs.

Or have bikini girl reenact this from "America's got talent"

Her dance wasn't that good, but the whole idea was pretty nice. Now why were people covering their eyes?

I think I know now where I've seen the mother.

Isn't she the mom on Zack and Cody?
No. I've seen her before too, but don't remember where and I'm too lazy to loook it up. Maybe later.

Transforming into classic KITT would have been a nice touch.

I missed the classic mustang bit. I'll probably download the episode just to see it.

As for KITT transforming into a truck just to handle those rough roads, there's another problem with that. His ability to transform would probably make him even more vulnerable to damage or a breakdown. All those moving parts woud not only make him less sturdy, but would also mean that more can go wrong.

Actress was Bellamy Young [IMDB Page]. Looks like she's been in various things I've likely seen her in. Boston Legal, X-Files, etc.

^ I remember her from CSI Miami where she played the hot DA.

Anyway, good ep, lots of fun. I loved the banter between Mike & KITT.

I thought it would become the TransAm as well!

This episode by far was one of the best. It has improved dramatically and the mom was a MILF! Menounous, though pretty, cannot act. But overall this was an excellent episode!

I thought Menounos was decent enough (or at least as good as the other so-called actors on this show, lol). In fact I kinda hope we see her character again.

Re: Knight Rider 1x15 - "Fly by Knight" - Discussion and Spoilers

I finally watched it last night and rate it as good. It would have received an "Excellent" had the producers stuck with the original concept of the car having a chameleon mode and not this stupid transformation mode. If you watch/read the original interviews the producers clearly state that the car would ONLY be able to mimic a car of the same mass. I pickup truck, a Mustang, and a Ford Edge don't have the same mass.

The writing has improved greatly. I'm curious if the jabs at Knight Industries by the government people are actually the complaints we fans. Both Mike and Sarah state, "We've learned from our mistakes".
