Knight Rider '08 – It's Just Not Right

So this morning as I drank my coffee while the kids were climbing all over me, I happened upon the Kenosha News article on the new Knight Rider movie that begins this Sunday. A two hour special, with all the hype would expect for a show on NBC.

Knight Rider?

You have got to be kidding me.

Now as someone born in 1970, I lived on Knight Rider when I was a kid. But even a twelve year old knew that it was the cheesiest show ever to be created. Come on, people. David Hasselhoff? Good grief.

Now I will not pretend to be the know-it-all with TV stars, but I’ve never even heard of Justin Bruening. Maybe I don’t watch enough daytime TV. And when one of the cast is named “hot chick,” well, that doesn’t leave much for character development, does it?

The only name (besides Hasselhoff) that I recognize in the cast is Val Kilmer, who is playing the voice of K.I.T.T. I didn’t realize that Kilmer’s star had fallen that far. He should have stuck to classics like Top Secret.

Now if they had done a remake of the A Team, this would be a whole different story…
