God, Knight Rider was crap....

Bought CAR this month and they've got a thing in it about TV and Film cars and they give all KITTs spec's (as well as the details on Hoff's perm!) and the talking sentient KITT boasted incredibly futuristic features such as the rocket-assisted Super Pursuit Mode, a 'Molecular-bonded' armour system and the then unimaginably huge one-gigabyte memory!

KITT was half an Ipod with wheels!!!

My phone has 2GB's and it's not half as camp as KITT!

Jim

(they also have a thing that Disney auditioned several 'Herbies'. One of which was a Volvo and another was a Toyota???)

Especially the hairdos. The 70s dated real quick too - specially in car design.

All those "man aided by super machine" 80s things ( Streethawk, Airwolf, Knight Rider ) are pretty unwatchable now. "Monkey" still rocks though.

Yeah, monkey along with his sidekick pigsy were good but no body could build an armoured truck out of a toaster and a bit of household junk like "THE A TEAM"

The Fall Guy? Yeesh. TJ Hooker was bad, as was Magnum PI.

The A-team is just .... well .... lets put it this way, it doesn't stand up now but it was fun at the time.

Never heard of Manimal, what was that about?
