I may be the only one who's pretty excited for the two-hour Knight Rider reboot airing this Sunday night...or I may be the only one who's admitting it. But I'm trying to manage my expectations, because many of the things that made the original KR so awesome won't be present, including:
2. Devon and April/Bonnie's "oh, Alice" reactions to the old-married-couple banter between Michael and KITT.
4. KARR, an even bitchier queen than Kitt.
But we'll still be able to fashion a drinking game around KITT freaking innocent bystanders out by talking and driving himself, locking prospective car thieves in the back seat and delivering them to the authorities, jumping over large crevasses with the help of creative camera angles, and so on. And KITT is now voiced by Val Kilmer, which I for one think is awesome. Will Arnett is great, he could have made it work, but...the gig did seem like kind of a weird fit for him. Not beneath him exactly, just kind of...down-market.
Kilmer, on the other hand, is perfect. Notoriously difficult to work with and notoriously hammy? Perfect recipe for this dish.
