The 80s Revival Continues...

The 80s revival continues and its hotter than ever. Thankfully without Gary Coleman.

Indiana Jones is scheduled for release this summer, Rambo is in theaters and now Knight Rider is coming back to television on NBC!

Its fast, high octane, non-stop 80s action.

Here's my synopsis of what's coming:

A 65 year old Harrison Ford digging up ancient ruins, a 61 year old Sly Stallone fighting in southeast asia...again. And now, David Hasselhoff is back with more Knight Rider action. What one of these classic film series will work with the viewing public more than the others? Do I really need to answer this?

NBC sent out an official press release on the upcoming new Knight Rider series. Evidentally "The Hoff" will make a special appearance.

If your not convinced, here is a comment from one Knight Rider fan on the upcoming series:

"Wow, they've finally done it... they've found an idea that sucks worse than TKR. Not only do Ford vehicles look ordinary as hell, all this "hack any system", shapeshifting bullshit is derivative box-office zombie crap, obviously cooked up by someone who thinks that as long as it's a black car that talks and David Hasselhoff makes an appearance, it's Knight Rider. Personally I'd rather see YouTube footage of Hasselhoff yelling at his kid and trying to eat a hamburger."

If that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is.

Let us not forget the "classic" American Gladiators.
