Just a reminder that next week, January 21st on NBC, the new Knight Rider show will feature the return of the "Evil Prototype" K.A.R.R. voiced by none other than Transformers voice actor Peter Cullen, who is of course best known as the voice of Optimus Prime from the original cartoon series and the Michael Bay Transformers movies.

Last night's episode of Knight Rider also featured a teaser for the upcoming episode called "Knight To King's Pawn", which fan site knight rider online was gracious enough to host on YouTube. In the 20 second clip you can hear Peter Cullen as KARR say the line "KITT Must Die!!!"

Peter Cullen voicing a giant robot on primetime network television? Win.

Everything else about this show? Fail.

About damn time. I kinda hope KARR gets destroyed so theres no more reasons for me to tune into this crap show. Hot chicks and transforming cars sounds like a win but its not. Think they would've figured that out after the last TF movie. But then again it is abc.

After seeing that giant robot, it makes me think that a live action Transformers series could be possible. I mean if they are able to pull that off imagine what they could with Prime and the rest?

Yep, this may be one episode I can make it through.

Peter is right: KITT (and this show) must die!

So grossing $800 million worldwide isn't "win" huh? Sounds like they won quite a bit to me.

This show is not good and does need to be whacked. They tried to make it campy like the original, but it didn't work.

Eight hundred million dollars of fail begs the question, "What's wrong with the world?" :P

Knight Rider also fails quite badly... But For some reason I keep watching it. It keeps me from stabbing myself with pens at work?

What do you mean fail?
The new kinght rider is just as good as the old one...you might just be thinking the old one was some masterpiece when its just as cheezy as the new.
Plus Karr is a great big robot that sounds like an evil optimus prime what more could you want.
AND from the look of this image from the intro sequence hes a transformer too! (or could it be the new KITT has a bot mode too?)

Say what you like, I enjoy it!

I understand Knight Rider is going to have a bit of a revamp.

Apparently they are scrapping a few characters and changing out a lot of the writing staff.

I've watched the last few epps just so I'd know what was going on for the KARR episode, and I'm curious to see if the change in staff will help the show any.

IMO, as it is now, the show is not just campy but epically lame.

The idea is that KITT only changes into other vehicles (which they will use less in future episodes and limit him more to just variations of the battle-mode) but KARR is more military driven and can transform into that drone. At this moment it is not clear if this KARR is the same KARR from the original series, but it has been suggested that this KARR has been around for a while.

So hoping for K.A.R.R. to ACTUALLY kill K.I.T.T. and the rest of the entire cast, and then reformat into Optimus is a bit too much wishing right?

I wouldn't mind... The only character I actually liked died in the last episode. =(

What the fridge? Did that car just transformed or something? I remember it being a red Transam or something, but that seemed pretty cool, I may have to watch it.

have to admit i always loved KARR. the rivalry between him an kitt really sparked my imagination when i was a kid.

i'll definetly be checking this out.

didnt see the drone thing coming though. wouldve thought it just been anothe car with the same capabililties as kitt.

still should be fun and hopefully they wont kill him off so we can get a grudge match later on :)

Looks like they grew some sense, and KARR is here. That's all I wanted.
It'd be cooler if he was a black '87 Mustang GT w/ silver ground effects, like the Trans-Am but better. :P
But he's a Mustang, so he could be an LX 4-cylinder and I'd still love him.
And he transforms?
And sounds like Optimus (somewhat ironic)
My god.
=P~

I'm ready for them to bring back that evil Semi truck from the original series.
Re: "KITT Must Die!" (868015)

Goliath???

The only thing "special" about that truck was that it had KITT's bonded invulnerability shell (everywhere but the pin that connects the trailer to the truck), and that it was driven by the "prototype" of Michael Knight's face, evil relative Garth...

Nah, let Goliath rest in pieces, along with Garth, don't want any bright ideas about Garth and twins...

I watched the first episode of Knight Rider and was ASTOUNDED at how crazy bad mega awful hideous it was.

But... I'll give this one, single episode a watch.

And then it's silence again.

Of course, I might just scrap watching even this episode... yeah, it has Cullen and he's a robot... but he's a robot that looks like the awful movie robots.

Bah... I'll flip a coin. (Seriously, I literally am going to flip a coin on this.)

I'll watch it, just as I have watched the previous episodes in the series. I can actually say I'm a fan of the show, but I definitely know that it could use some SERIOUS work to get it 'up to par' with what it could be... I'm hoping that the revamp does that. Bring it back to more of a 'man and his car help people in trouble' like the original was.

I actually like this show. I don't know why there's all this hate.
