I was bored last night. So I watched two episodes of Knight Rider.
While probably not the producers intent- it is really good Comedy.
Talking Trans AM Fire Chicken named Kitt who sounds a bit fem, Hasseloff taking a nap while on a road trip.

Wow! This is totally new information!

I hear they have a show on a cruise ship too, and some island where fantasies come true, and one with a Dodge Charger and two hick brothers!

lol, knight rider was great back in the day but I'm sure it doesn't age well. I preferred Airwolf for your indestructible vehicle shows of the 80s.

It most certainly did not age well just like many of the others from the 80's.

That being said....Airwuss was the worst.

I preferred the firepower of the chopper. I was probably 7 or 8 when I watched them though.

As someone who was born in Ď76, 80s TV was the best. Knight Rider, Magnum PI, Airwolf, A-Team, The Fall Guy, Simon & Simon, The Rockford Files... so many great shows. Viewed through todayís prestige TV lens, yeah, they donít hold up well at all. Thatís ok though, they get bonus points for nostalgia.

Rockford Files holds up extremely well. Thatís an all timer.

Magnum and Simon and Simon hold up.

Knight Rider, Airwolf, ATeam and Fall Guy no. Those were always pure cheese.

Airwolf is so bad. I watched it as a kid and enjoyed it.

I watched it as an adult and realized it was about 6 different stock footage shots for the helicopter and that Jan-Michael Vincent is a worse actor than any homeless man you could've dragged off the street.

I have no idea how Jan-Michael Vincent ever made a career as an actor. The guy had one facial expression and one tone of voice. I guess it should be inspirational in that anyone can succeed if they persevere.

I watched a few Knight Rider's over the air this summer. No. It did not age well. But did predict some future technology.

I love watching shows and looking for sets from other shows. Most of it was done at Universal in the same square as Back to the Future. Had the diner where Marty tripped Biff. Different paint of course.

That was also the same square as Gilmore Girls. (none of which was filmed in NE)
