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
Team Knight Rider use five different vehicles for their missions, each with its own computer AI system like the original Knight 2000 vehicle. Unlike KITT, these are specialized units with specific roles in the team. In addition, after the K.R.O. incident, Garland has had each vehicle installed with intentional weaknesses to act as a fail safe in case any of them go rogue. Although armored to protect their occupants, the vehicles do not share the original KITT's nearly indestructible "molecular bonded shell". Bullets can shatter windows or blown open with a small explosive, for example, while body panels can be damaged in collisions and roll-overs. The vehicles deploy their own self-repair system enabling the cars to fix their own minor damage shattered windows and crushed body panels have been shown "fixed" soon after taking damage. More severe impacts however, require body shop maintenance to repair the vehicles. See more »
The severe problem with this series was that we got no back story with the new cast. Who were they, why were they chosen, and who chose them? Sure we got little looks into their past (i.e. Kyle's past with the CIA, Jenny's past with the military, Erika's life as a thief) but we don't get anything past that. Why should we accept these guys as the predecessors to Michael and KITT when we know nothing about them?
A good back story would have gone along way in helping the fans warm up to the new show, but sadly we don't get that, we just get introduced to them and told "Here's the new team, they have talking cars too, enjoy!"
The show would been great if they addressed that major detail, its just something you cant over look.
