Knight Rider bringing KARR back!


It amazes me just how much I'm loving the first season of the new Knight Rider TV series. The main cast are great, Val Kilmer's voice for KITT seems spot on, the transforming car scenes are a great little nod to the recent Transformers movie and bring KITT screaming into the 21st century with the rest of his cool upgraded tech systems, the episodes seem to be getting better and now the series is bringing KARR back!



KARR from the 80's series

Yes "KARR" (Knight Automated Roving Robot) seems to be the secret villain behind the events of episode 6 and maybe the first season villain. KARR is the prototype Knight Industries high tech car that precedes KITT and was a major antagonist for two episodes of the original 80's Hasslehoff series. In the new series it's said to have killed 7 people in the past and is able to self programme... a dangerous thing for an artificial intelligence to be able to do as we know from Terminator and the Skynet system!

From what I can tell KARR can either transform into or actually is a robot (looking almost like the new version Robot from the Lost in Space Movie). What's interesting is that the writers seem to be tying KARR in to Michael's patchy history too (he has partial amnesia for a part of his time in the field as a Ranger) as he recognises the evil vehicle when he sees its specs.


KARR's schematics from episode six that Michael recognises.


Lost in space Robot? Robocop's ED209? A new powerlifter from Aliens? No it's KARR!!!


Oh and as a little side note both Sarah (Deanna Russo) and Zoe (Smith Cho) are two of the hottest women on current sci-fi TV... Watch it and you'll see what I mean.
