Embrace The Inner Cheese: Knight Rider  
It started awful. Like, really, really "I wish llamabitchyo was here so we could have a snark fest" awful. But now it's bad, but in that kind of good way. It has logic flaws (not as cool "why is he playing tennis with a frying pan" kind of logic flaws, alas) and is not with the deep and complicated plots. But it's finally managed that weird chemistry of nostalgia for the old show, snarky dialog, and just plain geek. And KITT's developed a sense of humor. A really logical weird sense of humor. And that's what's making it worth sticking around through the rest of the badness. (That, and lines like "No, it sounded like KITT was just making you his bitch." or "Danny, do not encourage the car to be violent!")

I still wish llamabitchyo was here to snark it. But I think it would snarking in the fun way, not in the "oh my word this is so painful" way.

Oh, and KITT the old school '60's Mustang? TOTALLY COOL!

But I like the tennis pan!

And if KITT is making anyone his bitch, I really need to be there!

Okay, so the tennis pan was cool. (For all that that statement makes me think of a pastry in the shape of a tennis racket.)

Yes, you do. KITT p0wns them all. And he so totally made Michael his bitch.

*LOL* I caught a bit of the new remake a while ago, but was shamed by the roomies to stop watching. ^O^;;

No, no! Stand up to the shame and glory in the cheese! (Or the snarky dialog.)
