Knight Rider Undergoing Major Revamp

Knight Rider is changing gears for the back half of the season.

Recently granted a full season by NBC, the drama is now out to finish its freshman year on a high by undergoing a major reboot. Rider is set to dump three regulars - Sydney Tamiia Poitier, Yancey Arias and Bruce Davison - after the initial 13 episodes and will revamp the show to draw more parallels to its '80s original, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

"It's a reboot," Gary Scott Thompson, executive producer/showrunner, said. "We're moving away from the terrorist-of-the-week formula and closer to the original, making it a show about a man and his car going out and helping more regular people, everymen."

I think that that may be a good idea, however, every once in a while it would be nice to see Micheal kick some terrorist from here to next Wednesday!!! Also I would like to see the relationship between Micheal and leading girl develope into something more. It is getting rediculous that nothing is happening between them.
