Trivia

There are some noticeable changes in the movie premiere to the TV show. Most noticeable is KITT's voice modulator which is now an orb mounted where the air vents were instead of the screen covering the radio and climate controls in the movie premier. Use of the displays on the windshield and later hood were newer for the show. While there isn't an explanation given, one could surmise that the version of KITT from the movie was a prototype and modifications were made to KITT before he was mission ready for the TV series.

Money badly spent
5 May 2009 | by el-fastSee all my reviews

I wondered about this show. First of all, I was rather disappointed about the car. I mean, discarding the stylish Trans Am for a mere Mustang? Just doesn't do the job. After watching KITT for a while, it turns out he can even transform in three forms, which is quite senseless and most of the time it does not even make sense... The voice of KITT is rather boring and toneless.

Then the new intro song. Normally I like remakes with a bit of a rock twitch, but this one? Rather disappointing.

Then the more important things: The stories. I watched several episodes, as I want to give it several chances, but it does not really seem to get better. The stories are rather flat and chaotic and even quite repetitive to some lengths.

The acting is most of the time either overacted, or on the contrary missing livelihood in mimics and body language.

The special effects are really well done. Alas most of the time, they do not add to the story. On the contrary even, they are too often a way to show off with the CGI capabilities.

In some fist fighting scenes, the stand-ins didn't even look like the original actors. Different size, different body mass, different colour of hair, different hairdo. Normally I do not complain about such things, but here it's embarrassingly obvious at times.

Long story short: they better had spent less money on the effects and more money on decent writings and talented actors.
