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.

Love in the Wild

Action & Adventure
Would you mind speed-dating in the jungle on self-made rafts sailing down the crocodile-infested river? If you like these adrenaline-stuffed romantic adventures you will probably be hooked by Love in the Wild. However, to say the truth, you will have to sufficiently lower the acceptable level of stupidity, ridiculousness and affectedness. Otherwise you will be a little bit surprised by how this TV show was made. The anticipated symbiosis of The Amazing Race and The Bachelor Pad turned out to be just a bunch of meaningless quests on pseudo-romantic substrate. The only thing that saves this show is the fact that producers seem to be not taking the entire stuff too seriously. For instance, who will take seriously somebody whining about person whining about ants? As for series rules there are lots of advantages to form a loyal couple. Even if you are finishing last, there is a good chance to stay in the game in case if some partners in other couple will broke up and will not find any other contestant to partner with. In this situation they will end up in the Single Area from where they, most likely, will be eliminated. Such breaking ups are happening from time to time just because betrayal could be advantageous too: not because you are falling in love with somebody from the other couple, but on case if last-place couple member will accept a switch request in order to secure staying in the game. In opposite to the actions taking in the show, the rules are only intriguing elements in Love in the Wild. But do not forget the surrounding nature -it's beautiful and, furthermore, it's filmed magnificently. And maybe it's only the advantage saving this dating reality TV show for the next seasons.
