Good start to a new season
19 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Just finished watching the new pilot for Knight Rider 2008. I thought it was great! Good action and plenty of the car (and looks like Val Kilmer has finally found a suited role as a robot).

The moans in previous posts are petty IMO. As for the Mustang not having good suspension for corners??? What are you on about? Does this look like it's a stockroom Ford to you? Grow some imagination people! Guess what? - stock Fords can't morph while you are driving either!

It is what it says on the tin - an updated version of KR and I like it. I grew up on Airwolf and KR and it's great to see one of em making a comeback.

Yes it may be far-fetched but so was the first version. How else can Michael get into so much trouble on a weekly basis? You gonna slag off the A-team next for being unrealistic? I hate to break it to ya but 4 bog roll tubes and a some gaffa tape does NOT translate into an armoured tank!

Watch it for what it is - and leave your pre-judgement at the door.
