Fifteen years ago, all it took was one man and one car to get the job done. Now, the Foundation for Law and Government has assembled five highly skilled operatives and paired them with most advanced, state-of-the-art vehicles to take on a new breed of outlaw. They are: Team Knight Rider! Written by
Although only lasting one season, many of Team Knight Rider's components can be seen transplanted into the 2008 attempted update of Knight Rider, including cars that can repair themselves after taking damage, the inclusion of weapons, having an airplane as a launching hangar and having one of the riders be the offspring of Michael Knight. In TKR it was Jenny while in KR2008 it was a man named Mike Tracer. See more »
TKR was a good show with lots of potential. Many people judge it harshly, but I believe that the voice acting of the vehicles and the acting on the part of the drivers was good. I believe if they had been given another season to work through, the actors could have grown into the roles more and the relationships with the vehicles would have developed further. Fans who wanted the KITT/Michael relationship were bound to be disappointed since this was NOT a show focusing on KITT and Michael. These were *new* personalities, and to me that was its charm.
The vehicles themselves were awesome, and I do hope they are safely stored away somewhere to be shown off at some future time. It was nice to see the two motorcycles damaged and rebuilt. It was also great to see why there was now a TEAM and not just ONE hero. There was continuity between the two shows and it was nice to see them move away from the KR 2000 timeline and just work a new one in.
I believe this show deserved at least another season to prove its worth.
