    Unsurprisingly, Knight Rider is going to continue beyond the made-for-TV movie that aired in February. I'll try to remain cautiously optimistic, but the movie didn't give me much hope.

    It doesn't say if Val Kilmer will still be doing KITT's voice. I hope they find a way to bring Will Arnett back in.

    From what I have been reading the show is going to be taking the next step from the pilot, meaning more and better effects and that it will be much less of a Ford commercial...I personally enjoyed the pilot and I am looking forward to once again getting to sitdown and watch Knight Rider on Friday nights.

    I unfortunately missed the movie, but I had not heard many good things about it. I still want to see it but now I am scared.

    I'm a bit surprised that it will be made into a show given the universally bad reaction/reviews of the movie. But at least it gives me a chance to watch a little bit and decide for myself.

    Bad reaction and reviews, yes, but:
    I'm sure that's all the network suits needed to hear.

    hopefully they take the criticism and make the appropriate changes for the show.

    Blech. I had already managed to block most of that horrid thing out of my mind.

    The Knight Rider name got most of the 18-35 Audience, but they keep up a show based on the lameness that they showed, they won't have anyone watching by episode 4.

    SWEET! I loved the TV movie, can't wait for the full blown series. It's nice to have an update of an old series that keeps the spirit of the original. I'm looking forward to seeing this KITT's personality develop, the same way the original's did.

    Ford commercial? WTF? Car companies have been supplying vehicles for TV shows and movies for decades. Why does Knight Rider get singled out for this? Because they didn't use the exact same car as 25 years ago, and the new one is a different brand?

    Good. It should do much better as a series than it did as the movie.

    Yes please...

    Don't get me wrong Greyryder, like I said I enjoyed the pilot and I am really looking forward to the new series, and I also like the fact that it was a new chapter in the story and that it is not the same. But Ford did take the supplying of cars for the show to a new level so much so that just about every car in it was a Ford and that they stated that KITT himself had to remain visable as a Shelby GT500KR hence all of the close ups of the Cobra emblems and such, add to that that 95% of the commercials were Ford including the little mini dating drama between KITT, Mike, Some Blonde, And the new Sync system in a Focus thats what has people saying it was a commercial for Ford aswell as a damn good pilot....You cut down the Ford commercials give KITT some time to show all of his abilities (Most of which were held off being used incase they got a series out of it) add in some interesting stories and bam all the makings of what made the original a classic while keeping it new and fresh.

    Well the whole retroacting the original Kitt's origin with Charles Graiman as the one who created Kitt and no mention of Karr in the movie makes me think that Charles Graiman merely built the AI not the car.

    Going over the flaws of Karr for the original Kitt's development.

    Nanoskin is a downgrade from MBS (Molecular Bonding Shell) and Kitt's holography.

    I couldn't agree more. He just didn't sound right as KITT.
