What Can I say about this follow up series
19 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What Can I say thats not already been said, bad acting, horrible plot, seems more like a Ford Commercial than a tribute to the original. Lets start with the basics..KITT from the 80's seems more advanced that this new reincarnation..KITT was indestructible whether he was activated or not..for this version the car is completely vulnerable and seems more like a step back than forward..they should have combined the technologies to make it more believable..and making Michael Knight seem like a deadbeat dad most have upset all the true fans of the original. I recommend a complete revamp of this show before they make it a series full time..thats my humble opinion.
