Storyline

When a young detective is ambushed in a failed police stake out, he is believed to have been killed. In reality, he revives and learns that his face has been altered and his identity has been changed to Micheal Knight. The person responsible for this is Wilton Knight, a dying billionare who, convinced that one man can make a difference, has selected Micheal for the role as a crime-fighter. Now armed with a advanced car called KITT which has the equivalent armor of a battle tank, capable of speeds over 300 MPH and contains an artificial intelligence computer personality as an aide, Micheal agrees to perform his assigned role. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

MAN AND CAR FIGHT CRIME. mAN TALKS TO CAR COPS LOOK AT HIM SUSPICIOUSLY
7 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

KNIGHT RIDER was a family show with a long run about a guy who fights crime with a super high tech car that can do anything. It was very popular in it's long run despite the critics pans of the show. The show was about a cop who gets a face surgery and fights crime for a secret think tank. The show was a action sci-fi hour in the "man from uncle" escapist tradition. The series one was of NBC's most popular genre shows of the 1980's.
