Knight Rider

I never thought it would happen. After watching the pilot and premier episode, I predicted it would only be a matter of a few weeks before Knight Rider was no more. But according to an Entertainment Weekly exclusive, NBC has ordered a full season of the most awful show ever put on television. And because I volunteered to watch and review the show for FSR’s Control Freaks feature, I’ll get to watch every single one of them.

Kill me.

In his article for EW, Michael Ausiello says he hasn’t been watching the show since the pilot, and asks, “Has KR gotten better since its premiere last month?”

I can answer that question with a resounding, “Aw, hell no!” and point Michael to my reviews of all the episodes so far, the latest of which can be found here–an episode I was forced to actually watch sober due to a pending surgical procedure the following day. Let me just say that having a large tube with a camera on the end of it shoved down my esophagus into my stomach was a cakewalk compared to enduring forty-three minutes of Knight Rider.

The good news is, tomorrow night I’ll have Sailor Jerry, Skol, and The Beast to carry me through KR’s irredeemable awfulness. Check in Thursday for the latest in what now promises to be a long series of painful KR reviews–which I am now proposing be officially entitled, “Mister Hand’s Countdown to Stomach Cancer.”

Are you watching Knight Rider? If so, why? Also, do you think that you will make it for a full season?
