I am one of the avid viewers of the original Knight Rider some 20 decades ago. Coincidentally, it made it's television debut on September 26, 1982 - my bday. David Hasselhoff a.k.a. Michael Knight was at the prime of his career back then. Obviously, I was then too young (exactly 2-years old) to understand the show. But thanks for being in the third world, international hit-series would be shown after a few years. As I can recall, I think I was about 8 or 9 years old when I started to watch it in cable. Oh well, enough of the past. It just makes me older hehe.

The remake of Knight Rider debuted this fall with Justin Bruening a.k.a. Mike Traceur, the new driver of Kitt - name of the supercar. This is a brand new twist of story for the show. According to my source Mike is an ex-soldier that got recruited by Knight Industries to battle ruthless mercenaries. With the combined producers of "The Bourne Identity and Mr and Mrs Smith", the series is surely packed with speed, drama, and a whole lot more of twists. Another hint, Michael Knight is set to guest in the show. Stay tuned!
