    Saw new clips for the Knightrider show at SDCC Kit transforms from a truck to a car and more in the new series. Full rotating part moving transformation.

    Yeah, it was a show to promote the Dodge Viper. It could transform from a regular red Viper coupe to a custom SUV-type off-road Viper.

    The Knight Rider TV movie was boring as hell. Hopefully they really up the action in the series because the writing sure isn't going to carry it.

    Dude, I remember Viper. It was kinda like Knight Rider in a way but the car didn't talk and well after that well its history. But I can hardly wait for the new version of Knight Rider this September.

    So this might actually be the closest thing we'll see of a live version of M.A.S.K.

    I started watching it three times.
    I never get more than 5 or 10 minutes into it before switching it off.
    It is the opposite of interesting.

    I liked the movie. I read an article on Sci-Fi Wire, that the guy in charge admits that they need to cut back on all the long driving scenes. It sounded to me that they're actually trying to correct mistakes that they made in movie.

    Yeah. It felt like a half-hour show made extra long. Hopefully that means that at normal length it will be good.

    Nice to hear he actually transforms instead of the weird morphing shit he did. nice wy of making him indestructable but as far as disguises go it just seemed like a half-assed way of doing it.

    Is Kilmer still doing that retarded voice? Hope not.

    Also, I hope they drop all that dramatic angled-zoom-in-close-up crap.

    I'm not going to judge the show until I actually get a chance to see it. I was a KR fan well before TFs came along.

    The 2 hour movie they did last year was pretty good.
    I'm surprised they waited so long to do the series.

    As I recall the premise for the new KITT's morphing technology had something to do with nanites. Interesting that the new series seems to be expanding on this and allows KITT to morph into a different make and size of vehicle.

    Maybe Soundwave can actually be a tape deck in the new movie and they could explain his resizing as nanite replication instead of mass shifting?
