American Gladiators was on last night and again also tonight. This was one of my favorite shows growing up, and I was very happy to hear that it was coming back. Who says the writers strikes are bad for TV? They have a whole bunch of new Gladiators that are ready and willing to take you down, and a whole bunch of people that are willing to let them. One guy that was on last night had waited 14 years to be on American Gladiators, because he had missed his chance before because of LA traffic. If I remember correctly he lost, but he did get to finish his dream, so at least he has that going for him.
But that’s not what you had to see.
During the commercial break they showed it, I couldn’t believe my eyes, I wasn’t expecting it at all. Yup is was a commercial for the new Knight Rider Backdoor Pilot. A Backdoor Pilot is basically a made for TV movie, that if it does well enough, can be made into a series. Of course with the good also comes the bad. Mr Feeny will not be returning as the voice of KITT 🙁 Also something interesting KITT this time will be a black 550 HP Ford Shelby GT500KR Mustang, not the Trans Am that it has been in the past. I like Mustangs better anyways.
