Mike Traceur a bitter former Army Ranger and failed race car driver, just got a new lease on life, neither he cares for or wants this chance to make up for his past failings. FLAG wants a new driver, but he is hesitant to join this mysterious group and doubts this super car or he can make a difference. He's got problems, he's in debt and people want to kill him. The choice is all too obvious for him and the Knight Industries Three Thousand (K.I.T.T). Written by
If you discount the super cars from the short lived Team Knight Rider (1997) series or the car that K.I.T.T. was put into in the movie Knight Rider 2000 (1991), the new K.I.T.T. is a third generation of Knight Industries Super Cars. The first was K.A.R.R. (Knight Automated Roving Robot), then came the first K.I.T.T. (Knight Industries Two Thousand), and finally the current K.I.T.T. (Knight Industries Three Thousand). Later on, we learn there was also a second K.A.R.R., making K.I.T.T. the *fourth* generation.) See more »

About 25 years ago, there was a man named Wilton Knight who on his deathbed told me "One man can make a difference." I was that man.

I can understand why they would update the technology of K.I.T.T, I really didn't enjoy this remake. I'm a huge fan of the original series and I guess for me this remake was always destined to fail before it even started.
I hated the new opening theme too, they should have kept the original.
The only reason I didn't give this less marks was because Val Kilmer did a good job as the voice of K.I.T.T.
I will be continuing to watch future episodes as I'm hoping to see David Hasselhoff make more appearances. I just wish it was 'The Hoff' doing all the action and driving scenes, even if he is 25 years old than he was in his prime.
