KNIGHT RIDER on NBC “Knight in Shining Armor” Early Review

KITT

The season premiere of the new KNIGHT RIDER “Knight in Shining Armor” was impressive in many ways, none of them good.

I can’t tell you how much I disliked this episode. I was a fan of the original Knight Rider with David Hasselhoff and I was hoping that the TV series would be better than Knight Rider: The Movie. Unfortunately Knight Rider did it not live up to the hype.

I thought the story was predictable. The characters were boring (except for KITT – Thank you Val Kilmer) and the overall rhythm of the episode was so cheezy that it left a bad taste in my mouth.

I kept hoping that it would get better but it really only got worse. It’s like the writers were trying out plot lines to see which one would stick. Knight Rider is a terrible remake of the original and IMHO, will end up cancelled like Bionic Woman.

What is it with NBC and remakes? It’s like they can’t get it right. First Bionic Woman and then Knight Rider. Jeez. A great concept but poorly executed.

What did you think of the Knight in Shining Armor? Am I being too harsh here?
