Did You Know?


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 »

Not as good as the original
17 February 2008 | by (Liverpool & Vancouver) – See all my reviews

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.
