Why doesn't someone just shoot me now? *Massive weeping*

My first thoughts were "Shoot me! Shoot me now!"


...or same as yours, but without the massive weeping (It's a guy, "control" thing.) [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Knight Rider

[img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] I used to watch Sesame Street, too. Hardly a show I'd be tuning into today, though.

No Rangers series or Crusade, but instead Night Rider. [img]images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif[/img] This is really adding insult to injury! [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Knight Rider

Cheap, mainstream science fiction. This seems to be their angle. Why not recycle an old show which would be new to a younger audience that never saw it since they were in diapers when it was airing.

Or for us older folks, we may just tune in because we did grow up watching it. Hell, Ill admit it, Ill probably watch it now and then if Im around when its on. Yea the show doesnt really hold up to todays standards, but it was great back in the 80s. Gotta keep things in perspective.

Re: Knight Rider

When I was a kid, my two favourite shows were Speed Racer and Starblazers. Over the past couple years, I've stumbled across both of them and realised that they weren't quite as good as I remembered them. But, as you get older, your tastes change. And Knight Rider gives me the same "kid show" kind of feeling when I see it.

I also used to watch Buck Rogers and Space:1999 when I was younger, but haven't seen them in years. I sometimes wonder if the same would hold true for them. Maybe if there was a channel dedicated to science fiction [img]images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img], shows like these would be reaired and I could see for myself.

UFO was like that for me. I picked up Set 1 on DVD, and it still looks good, and much more respectable than Sci-Fi's new ideas for series. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Knight Rider

When I found Knight Rider on Sci Fi I watched one episode and treated more like a comedy, I laughed almost all the way through. Strange how things change when you get older. In the 80's I loved that show and couldn't get enough of KITT.

This may be a lil off topic but now I'm hooked on MacGyver again since they began airing it on TV Land at the beginning of january.

What sci fi needs to air again is The Prisoner cuz I need a few more times to watch the series to try and figure it all out.

From what I know of the Prisoner, you haven't got much chance. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Patrick Magooan (sp?) originally wrote it as a six episode story, but the suits told him to write more. The other episodes of course don't fit in with the initial arc.

I haven't seen much of it, but it's probably worse than Twin Peaks.

Re: Knight Rider

I had a Knight Rider Big Wheel. It had the handbreak and everything. Along with my brother's General Lee Big Wheel we were two stylin' kids.
