Where to Watch 

Knight Rider


Knight Rider


Playing "Trivial Pursuit," you will want to remember "Knight Rider" ran on NBC from 1982 through 1986. Reminscing, you may recall long, long ago, in a mostly forgotten era when David Hasselhoff was something more and greater than a punchline, he and a tricked-out Trans-Am had a Friday night crime fighting show. That, too, may be a punchline, but millions of people found the premise plausible, the man and his vehicle just hot enough that they tuned-in to watch hunk and hunk-of-metal defeat nefarious characters of all descriptions. Now that cars do regularly converse with and direct people, the articulate and cultured Trans-Am may not seem so far-fetched after all. Hitmaker Glen Larson produced "Knight Rider," working from a relatively simple backstory: Billionaire Wilton Knight rescues and rehabilitates police detective Michael Long after a near-fatal injury. Equipping the veteran crime fighter with a new face and identity, Knight makes newly re-Christened Michael Knight the first of his agents in the "public justice" initiative he sponsors. The gig come with Knight Industries newest product"”the artificially intelligent Pontiac. And the adventures along the law's margins begin.

Charlie's Angels

Action & Adventure
Charlie's Angels first came our way back in 1976 and was a huge hit! Now this "reboot" promises to be at least as successful as the original due to beauty and brilliant writing. Seems these three young, self confident, and self reliant women each have a rather shady past. One was a cat burglar, another was a dirty cop, and the third was booted out of the Marine Corps. But Charlie Townsend (Victor Garber), who just happens to be extremely wealthy and dedicated to fighting crime, helps these young ladies get back on the right track when he hires them to assist in solving crimes. As he directs them over the telephone we never actually see who Charlie is but just hear his voice. Abby Sampson (Rachel Taylor of Grey's Anatomy) is a thief who originally came from a wealthy family. Kate Prince (Annie Lionzeh formerly from General Hospital) is an ex cop who got involved with corruption while with the Miami PD. Then there is Gloria Morales (briefly played by Nadine Velazquez from My Name is Earl before the character is killed off). And once Gloria is killed in a car bombing she is replaced by Eve French (Minka Kelly most recently seen on Parenthood). Eve was close with Gloria and now she loves to race fast cars and chase down bad guys. Look for some well written scripts (Alfred Gough & Miles Millar) as well as plenty of fast action from these beauties!
