Being a chivalrous gentleman, before I would ever ask for a woman's hand in marriage, I would first go to her father and ask his permission. The act has an old-fashioney charm to it, and invites the father to invent hilarious Meet the Parents-style traps to test my worth for his daughter.
Similarly, before I will ever watch a sequel or re-envisioning of the roles of David Hasselhoff--be they Baywatch, Baywatch Nights, or his work as Boner in Revenge of the Cheerleaders--I expect the full endorsement of the man himself.
So when I heard about NBC making a new Knight Rider--and after I finished doing spit takes--my first thought was does this have the Hoff seal of approval? The answer? You better believe it does. And it's an endorsement in the most mindblowingly Hoff-tastic way possible: a guest appearance! That's right, David Hasselhoff is in talks to appear on the new Knight Rider, starring alongside soap stars Deanna Russo and Justin Bruening.
If this support is half as influential as his endorsement for cheeseburgers, next fall I'll be figuratively eating this show off the floor!
