Michael Knight Returns


Too much election coverage! Time for a little pure escapism on The Mike Committee.

Luckily, we are just in time to see the new manifestation of Michael Knight and his talking car KITT. This is not your David Hasselhoff version. There is an intriguing backstory that will need to unravel.

KITT is driven by Michael Tracer this time [played by actor, Justin Bruening], a hero who has gaps in his memory of his past which link him to a mysterious organization, and which has erased his recollection of the past relationship he had with a sexy co-star. Things get heated up in more ways than one.

But because of his past, Michael Tracer has to be killed off, to prevent those in his past from seeking him. Redux Michael Knight. But it's still all about the car, isn't it?!

OK, so it's all pure fantasy crap, but it's a lot better than watching McCain circling Obama all evening.

Today I paid less than $3 a gallon for gas. Maybe cars can become sexy again.

Pure fantasy is thinking that either president can solve the economic debacle! A talking, thinking auto is closer to reality.

Great description of this series. You should be writing book jackets.

Further, you've got a good point. One more presidential campaign commercial may send me over the edge. I think I'd rather grade papers.

I'm voting for that guy with the "Change" slogan. You know who I mean.

Well, just be careful what you wish for...you might just get it...and it might not be the change you want!
