Does KARR Still Exist?

Click here for the video by Knight Rider Historians.

From the thumbnail to the video: "Do You Care?"

Um, I think Phoenix can answer that question as to whether or not we care. XD

For anyone interested, Knight Rider Historians also has this video where they've obtained an interview with the company that did many of the miniature work on the series, and they explain how they did the collision in the climax of S3's K.I.T.T. VS. K.A.R.R.

Knight Rider mentioned on People Puzzler.

Watch the entire episode here. Go the 12:20 mark if you want to go right to the clue.

I love this show. We watch a lot of trivia game shows in our house. (It's a great warm-up for Jeopardy.) Plus Leah Remini is a hero of mine.

R.I.P., Peter Mark Richman.


[info]luckybluestar
[info]shadowy_flight
Richman played Dr. Klaus Bergstrom in Goliath Returns in S2, and Kleist in S4's Many Happy Returns. I liked Dr. Bergstrom and that's one of my favorite guest star appearances. (Though my mother and I both agree his 'Swedish' accent sounded more like German.) ;)

He was also known for playing Chrissy Snow's father, Reverend Luther Snow, on Three's Company, and had many other film and TV credits.

Peter Mark Richman was 93 years old.

David Hasselhoff Reveals He Just Saw Actor Who Voiced 'Knight Rider's' KITT

Acess interview: David Hasselhoff Reveals He Just Saw Actor Who Voiced 'Knight Rider's' KITT

(Video is about 13 minutes long.)

Since there seems to be a little bit of confusion, and I know there are some newer fans out there. The two actors did previously meet at the Christmas party for Season 1. But I'm happy to hear that they were able to see each other again. :)

Well wishes to Tom Kane!


[info]luckybluestar
[info]shadowy_flight
From his daughter:

"Hi everyone! This is Tom's daughter, Sam. Our family wanted to share why my dad has been MIA. About two months ago he had a left side stroke that gave him right sided weakness and damage to the speech center of his brain. This means right now he cannot efficiently communicate verbally, nor read or spell. He is still competent and very much himself, but can only get out a few words right now. As many of you might know about strokes, it is possible for him to gain these functions back and we have found him excellent care in Kanas City for speech, occupation, and physical therapy, but for now, we have been warned by his Neurologist that he may not do voiceovers again.

My dad still remains in good spirits and his extreme stubbornness has helped him already show improvements in speech. He is fully on board with me sharing this and will see anything you guys post.

Lots of love from our family to yours."

And you can see the pictures she put on social media here.

-------

Tom Kane voiced Dante in the spinoff series Team Knight Rider. (Which, I admit I haven't seen very much of. But, I've always had a soft spot for Dante, since his personality seemed the closest to Kitt's.) And as mentioned, he's done a lot of voiceover work--as anyone who was a kid (especially in the 90's) will tell you.

I also remember a story of his reaching out to a young lady who was being teased by her peers because she was a girl who was into Star Wars.

We send out our prayers and well wishes to Mr. Kane and his family for a speedy and successful recovery . <3

Knight Rider producer Joel Rogosin has passed away.


[info]luckybluestar
[info]shadowy_flight
I just watched the opening credits to an old episode of Magnum the other day, and remembered that name from KR. He was 87.

Pretty sure this is the first death we've had connected to the KR franchise due to COVID-19. (I mean I COULD be wrong. This is just the first time I've heard anything.)

Please stay safe out there, everyone!

Announcer Jerry Bishop passes away.


[info]luckybluestar
[info]shadowy_flight
Bishop was the voice over announcer for Judge Judy, and for The Disney Channel in its early years.

I realized this morning that he also did voice overs for commercials for shows on NBC in the 80's, including Knight Rider.

Jerry Bishop was 84.

Comcast / Xfinity to drop STARZ-Encore channels.


[info]luckybluestar
[info]shadowy_flight
If you have Comcast / Xfinity like us, they're already starting to take those channels off the air. They're also going to be dropping the main STARZ premium network from their lineup. (If they expect us to pay extra for Epix, I have news for them.)

Source.

As of this post, you can still watch KR in re-runs on STARZ Encore Action (or at least for MOST of this week), but I can't guarantee how long that will be the case. (Or how long you can access KR via OnDemand under By Network, STARZ, Timeless TV.)

Yes, I own the series on different DVD sets, but it was nice to see it on TV in re-runs again. Especially on a network like STARZ-Encore. Hopefully another channel on our provider will eventually air it.

I'm more mad that this will affect Outlander, but this is why I collect my favorite shows on physical media, so I have them during these disputes and eventual transitions.

STARZ/Encore is moving KR to a new channel and time.


[info]luckybluestar
[info]shadowy_flight
Starting Tuesday, 10/1/19, Knight Rider will air on STARZ/Encore Action, and the new airtime will be somewhere between 11:50 and 11:52 PM EST.

STARZ/Encore has also shown KR at random times in the mornings over the past few months. I don't know if that's going to continue. Check your local listings.

It looks like Miami Vice will air right before Knight Rider, so if that's another 80's action show you might be interested in, there you go.

[info]luckybluestar
[info]shadowy_flight
Carmen Argenziano, who played Russell Maddock in Knight Rider 2000, passed away on Feb. 10, 2019.

It's no secret that I absolutely LOATHE Maddock's character, but it was never about the actor. If anything, it was his great acting that made me hate that character. He was always willing to sit down with fans and share his experiences of working with both David and Edward.

There's different versions on YT.

Can we just appreciate for a second not only William Daniels voicing Kitt again, but also the fact that Kitt and Bumblebee are in the same shot together?! ;D

Knight Rider TV Alert.


[info]luckybluestar
[info]shadowy_flight
If you have cable, and any of the STARZ/ENCORE channels, Knight Rider is now currently airing on STARZ/ENCORE Classic. (This channel is not part of the STARZ premium channels that you have to pay extra for.)

Airtimes begin a few minutes after 7 PM (EST.) There is a repeat airing at 4:00 or so in the morning on Friday. Check your local listings.

It's the syndicated version, but at least it's back on TV. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is the first time KR has aired on a cable network like STARZ/ENCORE.

Not sure how long they will air it, but they played Magnum, P.I., The A Team, and Diff'rent Strokes for a couple of years or so.

KR filming location destroyed by California wildfire.


[info]luckybluestar
[info]shadowy_flight
(Certainly not to take away from the devastating human toll of this story.)

The house used in 'Goliath Returns' and 'Knight In Retreat' was completely destroyed by the Woosley Fire in the Malibu area.

King Gillette Ranch, which was used as Colonel Kincaid's base in S1's 'Inside Out', was barely spared.

Our hearts go out to everyone in California affected by this disaster.
