    KARR is a transformer! (Knight Rider)

    Apparently this snippet's from one of the ads for the future Knight Rider episode. And will apparently look like this.

    WOW. Like seriously, just WOW. This series looks like it will go from "okay" to "AWESOME!"

    The CGI there is really... GOOD. Surprising. Maybe that's where all the digital effects budget went. :lol 

    Also, that is totally a KITT vs. KARR moment. HELLS YES.


    But does he turn into a Mustang, too? In KOTLD, the pics KITT showed had KARR's "vehicle form" in a more compact state inside an outline of a Mustang, so maybe he has a "shell". It would certainly be more forgiving for the CGI artists.

    Too bad this show comes on when I am not home to watch it and I don't have TIVO. It sounds cool.

    You had me at KARR.

    That clip is awesome!

    And for further fan gushing, as you may know, the first voice actor for the original KARR was Peter Cullen, now we have a KITT that can transform into other cars, and KARR tfansforms into a robot.

    Man, I hope the show does well and stays on the air.

    At the very least we get the last of S1, which has this ep with KARR in it. If the rest is HALF as good as those 3 seconds of KARR, I doubt this show will be cancelled.

    Thanks. But I don't like watching TV on my computer. If I had a way to get it over to my television....

    Yes. Probably because it's not. THIS is what KARR should be. Something that's actually dangerous. Not an eeeeevil transam that drives around and talks. That's KITT's deal. (aside from the evil part) Plus, this KARR is supposed to be some kind of military weapon that Mike has some experience with.

    Though if it makes you feel better, like I said, I'm pretty sure he's goign to have a Mustang "shell" as hinted at by the the ep "Knight of the living dead", in addition to his off-road and robot modes.

    Yep. Original KARR wasn't much of a threat unless you got inside him or in front of him. This thing will rip the side of your house off and kill you. I'll admit that I'd like to see them incorporate the original KARR's CPU into the story somehow.

    And re: the clip... Wow. I look forward to apologizing to the KR effects team for my previous comments about the crummy CG on the show.

    Fun fact (for those of you who didn't know): KARR's trans am was destroyed in his second appearance in the original KR series, but not KARR himself, which was shown lying on its side. UNHARMED.

    Add in the fact that this new KR is the same continuity as the first KR (which as a side note may mean the original Kinght Industries Two Thousand may still be functional as the original KITT Trans Am was spread about in the movie premere's first scene), the chances of this killing droid being the original KARR are very high in my book. I'm going to go watch KOTLD now, it's the last ep. I need to watch:dunce

    My theory is that they (Government or whatev) saw what the original KARR CPU was capable of in that kind of body, and then put that into this death-machine body to be used strictly as a military weapon. But KARR was too good and something happened, like he escaped and Mike was part of a squad sent to track him down or something.

    That's what I'm thinking (and hoping for).

    Yep, we've been discussing this in the other thread for some time.
