The original unsold pilot
1 April 2003 | by (Wilton, NH) – See all my reviews

Sometimes shows that don't get life the first time around get lucky a few years later. That is the case with Nick Knight, a 1989 TV movie with big names and a big budget. You can tell that by watching it. Rick Springfield is up for the role and Michael Nader is at his devilish best. Also John Kapelos is great if not better in this original version of the cult series. The TV show, which I thought was good, did not really live up to this original unsold pilot. CBS decided to cut costs by moving the show to Canada, and hiring mostly unknowns to replace the big stars. The pilot of the show "Forever Knight" almost follows this movie's script line for line (with a few deveations). Watch this movie and ask yourself if Forever Knight would've lasted long with this cast. Maybe, maybe not.
