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>

Trivia

The running gag of the two car thieves trying to steal K.I.T.T. was written, shot and inserted after the first cut of the pilot was seven minutes too short See more »

Goofs

On Michael Knight's driver's "new" driver's license, he is listed as being 5'6 with brown hair, brown eyes. In real life, the Hoff has blue eyes and is app. 6'4 - which would mean, by comparison, everyone else in the show would be really, really short. See more »

Quotes

Michael Knight: I've spend years of my life fighting criminals of one type or another who always had the upper hand and now this. That's a loner's dream come true. It's been handed to me on a silver platter. The world's most fantastic car. All the money and all the resources of the Knight Foundation. And most of all the best chance I'll ever get to prove that one man really can make a difference.

Knight Rider forever.
15 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

KNIGHT RIDER is one of the best TV series ever made. Beginning with an action-packed and thrilling pliot episode, we were taken for an unforgettable ride with David Hasslehoff's Michael Knight and his supercar, KITT (voiced unforgettably by William Daniels). Today, the show isn't as popular as once was but still many faithful fans who love it to bits. I'm one of them. Knight Rider is forever.
