I wanted to like it but I can't...

The show is ridiculous and has no redeeming factors to compensate for this. It's as if they knew they couldn't pull off a serious show and therefore settled for the absurd. If there were a decent story line - maybe. If the car was half believable - maybe.

At least the original show, while laughable to some extent, tried to be serious and somewhat pulled it off. Or maybe I was just young enough then to enjoy it.

This show though; maybe if I was 14 years old. Sorry.

It's not going to win a Golden Globe but it is entertaining.

I only watch the show because it has Deanna Russo and Smith Cho in it.

I was expecting a petitiononline link so this thread delivers.

I would've cared more for this show if Will Arnett was allowed to do the voice for the car.

the show is just bad. I was a fan of the original's when I was a kid, and wanted to give Knight Rider a chance, but with a giant transforming KARR and ford edges that are as fast as a state of the art vehicle, the show's only redeeming values are to the 14-18 demographic who are also subscribers to Maxim/FHM.

I loved the original knight rider, and I actually really liked the pilot episode of this new show.. but I just can't watch it anymore.

Although I really hope Deanna Russo and Smith Cho get work elsewhere soon cuz they are HAWTTTT!

They did rework the show for the episodes that aired after Dec 08. The episodes are definetly a bit better now than they were earlier in the season. Unfortunatly the show is still toast, because it lost most of the viewers earlier in the season. I wouldn't mind seeing more of it, but it's just not going to happen.

The show definitely has the cheeze factor. It's pretty over the top with the storyline and "unbelieveable" things that go on.

I think at this point, most people just watch it for the eye candy.

I think she's alright...though not really attractive in terms of "celebrity" hot...you can find hotter asian chicks just from walking through Metrotown or down Robson...

Here's a pic for those who never watched the show:
