Justin Bruening in Knight Rider

After a disappointing TV Movie earlier in the year, “Knight Rider” returns tonight with the promise of change. Gary Scott Thompson, the writer/producer of “Las Vegas” and writer of “The Fast and the Furious”, has taken over the executive producer choirs and he has spoken out about his own personal distaste for the TV Movie. Add to that early reviews which have said that the series throws away the TV Movie and goes in a completely different direction and the fact that Val Kilmer will continue to voice K.I.T.T in the new show and I’ll watch (at least for now).

The series premieres tonight on NBC at 8. Click to enlarge photos from NBC’s official site.
