Did You Know?


Peter Cullen did the voice of K.A.R.R. in this episode. He is well known by some fans as the Voice of Optimus Prime, which is a robot that changes into a vehicle, in both the Transformers Cartoon series and the Transformers movies. He also did the voice of the first K.A.R.R. in the original Knight Rider Series. See more »


Why did Michael ask Sarah how she got into the SSC? Secret passageway aside, is it unheard of to assume that she got in the same way they did? See more »


K.A.R.R.: We must stop them.
Alex Torres: KARR, stop!
K.A.R.R.: KITT must be stopped.
Alex Torres: No. KITT is no longer important. You have everything you need. Let him go.
K.A.R.R.: My analysis indicates that KITT is a potential threat. I will not allow for the possibility of being shut down again.
Alex Torres: I'm giving you a direct order. Stand down.
K.A.R.R.: I take orders from my creator, Dr. Charles Graiman.
Alex Torres: Graiman is dead. I'm next in command. You take orders from me.
K.A.R.R.: Your reasoning is correct. You are in fact the next in command. I do take orders from you.

Crash Test
26 December 2010 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

In what was obviously the last attempt to keep the series from being canceled, the show-runners bring back K.A.R.R. (previously mentioned in passing) - and fail on both accounts. The show was canceled and K.A.R.R. Mk II is an embarrassing mix of Darth Vader (he wants to unite with Mike, presumably to rule the planet as-- I got nothing) and Optimus Prime (his ability to transform into a robot and his voice being provided by Peter Cullen himself).

However, this is actually THE BEST episode yet, but the bar has not exactly been set high. Obviously most of the money went on CGI, since the atrocious green screen work is still present, Richard Burgi appears for maybe a total of two minutes of screen time and obviously the writers weren't paid because the script is once again full of clichés and idioticisms. One could make a list the length of an arm, but what's the point? Hence, just the worst examples: Mike infiltrates Area 51, which would probably get him killed in real life, and in the end, turbo-boosts K.I.T.T. right *through* K.A.R.R. - which for some reason causes it to explode. One *huuuuuge* problem: Torres was inside the exact section of K.A.R.R. that K.I.T.T. went through, yet after the explosion, he is found on the ground, coughing the clichéd Last Words of a Dying Man. So, saying that this is the best episode yet does NOT exclude that fact that it is just the least stupid episode yet, a towering 4/10.
