So About that Full Season of Knight Rider...


Weren't we all surprised and baffled when NBC announced early this Fall that the dreadful Knight Rider had received an early full season pickup?


Well...NBC has cut back that order and will suspend production after the 17th episode has completed filming.


Though the show hasn't been canceled, this also doesn't bode well for a second season. It's future will depend on the performance of the remaining episodes that air. The last episode will air on February 25, 2009.


The show has also undergone a variety of cast changes and revamps over the course of the season thus far.


So...who would be upset if Knight Rider goes away?

I sure as hell wouldn't - he sucks and the show airs on a line of boredom and the acting isn't all that good either

agree and they are missing a key element from the original series......Michael Knight! as well as they dont feautre the car that much on episodes...in the original the focal point of hte show was kit and his evoloution as well as his kick as weapons......all we've seen so far is the new kitt can transform and shoot his exhaust pips downward hurling him into the air....and one time with missles...but thats it

You have to realize the first season is a lot about introduction and building of characters as much as it is about a cool tricked out super car... and quite frankly the Hoff is TOO OLD!!! no offence, I loved the original show too, but this is a new car and a new Mike. You guys saw the teaser of KARR... I see potential just around the corner!!

I don't mind it! I sure wouldn't miss it if I don't get really bored.But it's simply not in the same class as the original. The plot lacks the interesting checkpoints that would draw many to watch it.I hope it get a second season deal to shine it's reputation bit.

i personally think that knight rider is a good show not great as its previous one, but the best one so far. and i think if ppl cus just give it a chance and view it as a completely new show without keeping the original show in mind, you might like it.

Well you have to admit that's it's better then Team Knight Rider. I think they just need to get stronger very quick in order to get a second season, and enough with the terrorist of the week BS. That's become cliche and predictable, and I think it time to bring in KARR, and they find out that KARR's operator was Mike, and that's the reason for the chunck of time he can't remember.

sad- spin-off after spin-off... they need the Hoff. The chemistry that michael and kitt had in the original series is just not present, they try hard, but the plots, circumstances, and the writing is just far fetched and unbelievable. They could have done it- but the idea of knight rider being Michael and Kitt against the world is lost in all this drama. It was nostalgic though.

i think its a great show apart from they need to get rid of justin brueining they should put deanna russo in charge of kitt why does it have to be a male all the time paul campbell needs more stuff to do as well as he is so funny and smith cho should get more to do as well then it would be an even greater show

that is rediculous to get rid of justin bruening he is micheal "knight" his father is the original driver. to get rid of him would be hoorible for the show because he is the main character. i'm a girl saying that a male should stay in that spot.

I didn't care for the initial episode and actual didn't know the show had continued until looking through Hulu yesterday.
However, with some time to spare I watched a few of the later episodes and realized this show is funnier and more inteligent than the original! Don't get me wrong, I was a kid when the original aired and at the time I loved that version.
But for this day and age, I think the new Knight Rider is rather cool! Hilarious too if (like me) you like dry wit and comical sarcastic remarks.
Overall, this is a rather good modern revision of Knight Rider.
