NBC Knight Rider Episodes

If you didn’t know, NBC dipped its toe in the water last Spring with a two hour movie that was an update of the well known 80s series starring David Hasselhoff. I was less than kind in my review of the TV movie. It was incredibly cheesy and while it wasn’t as awful as I had anticipated based on the preview clips, it wasn’t exactly great.

I’m hoping that history at least partially repeats itself (I’ll explain in a moment). For now, check out a brief promo for Knight Rider 2008:

This does NOT look good to me, but then again the clips before the pilot premiered last season were far worse than that… and I’m hoping that the series is better than what you just saw above.

NBC has re-tooled the previous pilot completely, leaving only the barest framework and building fresh. We talked about the Knight Rider reboot last May.

Even if the new Knight Rider premiere episode is weak, I’m going to give it a few episodes to see if it gets better. I’ve learned my lesson with Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which had a very weak pilot but went on to be a decent series.

In any case, check out the series premiere here and if you’re on your lunch break watch the episode and let us know what you think. I’ll be reviewing it later on. icon smile Watch The Knight Rider 2008 Season Premiere Online

  1. Well, I remember watching the original Knight Rider, and I remember it looking like a normal Trans Am with all of its toys and gadgets on the INSIDE out of view from the outside world. This new KITT looks like it was designed by some high school fan of Initial D or the rice burner subculture we have. Seriously, what purpose does all of that cosmetic things they’ve shown from KITT serve?

    That’s why I’m trashing the car, because it’s plastered with gimmicks.

  2. Lol, Ken J, the car is only one of the problems…
    Let’s all take a step back and consider the source material…
    Keep in mind back then (80′s) we only had 7 channels, PBS, and no dvds or VHS. We were forced to watch crap shows!!!

    I remember watching the original Knight Rider,and thinking, “boy this is dumb”. Cylon looking car, driven by Disco Stu…guest stars included Gary Colman. ;-)
    (What you talking about Micheal!)

    Knight Rider has allways been a cheesy 80′s camp show that should have never been rebooted…

    This new version is nothing more than a Saturday morning kids show… 8-)

  3. Once upon a time there was a TransAm that had a TV show, the Knight Industries Two Thousand, looked like a normal car, behaved like a warrior ! KR WAS a story with a cool car with no exterior and reasonable storylines, this newest attempt at re-incarnation is a total DUD. Even if you disassociate from the original, this show just doesn’t cut it. As a die-hard fan of KR, and an oh-so-hopeful fan of the new KR, I pray for an early demise, it’s an insult to the name Knight Rider.

  4. Agreed !!!
    190,,, 8-)

  5. Instead of Knight Rider, let’s make a new show with a Toyota Prius and grandpa Jones. Now grandpa has true grit and the car gets great gas mileage as they try to save the world from the evils of global warming. The story lines have to be sensible; Like one day they meet up with the truck “Big Foot” and convince it to get a smaller engine and smaller wheels. Because this thing doesn’t look like a normal stock pick-up truck like it should.
    Or maybe not make a show like that.
    The new Knight Rider ROCKS. I’ll be buying all 8 successful seasons.

  6. Humphrey ABD, if Knight Rider goes 22 episodes ill be amazed, and bummed at the same time.

    Hold on to your dvds. Bro!!!!

  7. Hey, humphry, if you want to prepay for the 8 season DVD sets, I’ll buy you every season that gets released, I’ll gladly take that as an investment. So if it goes over 8 seasons, you win, you pay for 8, get however many it goes. If it goes 8, you break even, if it goes under, I win, lol.

    Hey, more power to ya, bro. :-)

    I’ll tell you what though – I have tried to revisit some old TV shows I loved from the 80s and watching them NOW I can’t even sit through them. I tried renting “The Greatest American Hero” which I used to really enjoy, but wasn’t able to get through more than 1 1/2 episodes of it.

    Some TV shows are best left in the past, where our fond memories color them as being better than they actually were.


  9. Thank you Vic. Having read your review I was surprised at this. You beat the show up pretty good, but you are at least williing to give it a few episodes to build character and see where it goes.

    Yeah, TV series are different from movies in that a movie has one shot at being good or not – an ongoing series sometimes takes a few episodes to find its “legs.”
