McBear's nightmare is on Sunday night TV.

Knight Rider. 2008.

KITT, a quasi law enforcement vehicle casually describes how he located "Mike" by using face data and accessing web info and security cams.

Must see.

Oh God.

Mike and KITT are up against a private security firm that is active in Iraq called "Black River".


Ripped from the headlines, it is.

Damn I missed it. I like retro TV. Except that brady thing. The new Alice gave me the creeps.

If you don't want to be chided for improper labeling, you'll refer to it as 'extension' TV or possibly even 'generational' TV. There's no retro involved. Well, someone did ask if the new KITT was another Trans Am.

so it is a modern look, not a flashback type show. That's like Vanishing Point: The Second Generation. A cheap knockoff, no matter how good.

Didn't see that but we did watch The Assasination of Jesse James and it was fantastic. I've been pouring over Wiki and it appears that the movie is about 99% accurate. too thummz.

Sorry. Three quarters into the show, the dogs needed one last trip to the back yard and I hit the sheets.

I seem to recall the stunning revelation that this 'Mike' is the son of 'Michael Knight' but I don't recall much else.

The show IS a knockoff but they do some interesting sci-fi CGI things visually with the Mustang. It should be noted that it is a Shelby and at the beginning of the show, the Mike character had a partially disassembled Cobra roadster in his garage. Not sure if it was a 'KIT' car. I crack myself up.

You would like the cinematography. Long shots of the car screaming through the desert and such. Someone finally found a way to make a car LOOK like it's going over 200 MPH without simply speeding up the film. Maybe it was going that fast. You, along with perhaps Qubes, would be better judges of what that kind of speed looks like for real.

The story was somewhat "24"ish without all the Jack Bauer histrionics but I was trying to follow you and Bot in the world of fanatical labeling...no wait, labels for fanatics? As you can see, my mind was sufficiently engaged that I could not fully concentrate on the adventures of K.I.T.T.

My multitasking abilities, while never strong, seem to be rapidly diminishing. I hope it's not the first step on the road to dementia.
