I happily raised my hand to critique the new version of a show from my childhood. Knight Rider. I thought watching an old favorite that has been updated with a kick-ass car, based off a new Mustang Shelby GT500KR would be fun.
But sometime over the last 20 years, KITT turned into a full-blown transformer. What? Yeah. Within the first 5 minutes, KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand) transformed into a dragster, a pickup truck and something that resembled a hovercraft!? You know, special effects are cool – being an artist, a lot of times I will watch a movie specifically for that reason – but damn, this was an assault on the senses. I made it to the first commercial break before deleting the episode from my DVR.
You know, I guess the original ’82-’86 series  may have been cheesy too (what wasn’t in the 80’s?), but the new series adds about 10 layers of special effects’ cheese. At least in the old days we had the Hoff. Thanks for ruining a childhood memory.
