This is being billed as a TV Movie Special Event, but yeah, it is the pilot episode for the new series.

So far, the only reference to anything eco-friendly is that KITT gets 167 mpg and is largely solar-powered. He also runs on gasoline.

Now of course it's just a bad sci-fi action movie.

At least they were trying to say that technology can improve gas mileage. (But at that speed in the desert, with an extra spoiler!?!?!)

More rants at next commercial break.

PS: The commercial tie-ins are every bit as bad as GM in the Transformers movie.
