News & Notes
Over on cable, Bravo has the fifth season premiere of Top Chef, G4 has the series premiere of Human Wrecking Balls, History has the second season finale of Monsterquest, Sci Fi has the series premiere of Estate of Panic.
NBC announced this week that they are “rebooting” Knight Rider by getting rid of some cast members and trying to take the show back to its roots of a guy and his talking car who helps everyday people. So, I guess that means, if you reboot, a reboot, of a reboot of the original, you end up back where you started or so they hope. But, is that really a good thing, because it seems like it should just be given the boot instead. What do you think? Do you like the show as is? If not, do you think it can be fixed? Or, is a Mustang that can somehow change into any Ford automobile, just a bit too much, no matter who will be on the show or who they will be helping?
