Sorry, tho I did like Riptide while it was on, Knight Rider is much better
of the two for me... Let's put this into perspective:

Riptide: Geeky guy who takes junk and builds robots with it to try to win
friendship with two macho PI's and almost never gets laid...

Knight Rider: Super-intelligent gorgeous _babe_ designs & builds ultimate
300mph _babe-magnet_ that can drive itself while you [circle one] (look
at)(chat with)(make whoopie with) _babes_, or play Intellivision if there
are no babes around...

It's the Sandra Bullock syndrome all over again.... but I like it!

(Tho I'll definately concede the point that 40-column Apple ][ basic
listings filled with nothing but PRINT statements is not what I'd consider
to give intelligence to a car... :-) Of course, how they got that Apple ][
to play Intellivision games was a technological wonder! ;-)

[the mind's not totally clear on the Intellivision point, but I'm sure it
was a commercially available video game system... It's been a while since
I've seen it]

Just MHO,
