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 »


While side-slamming into the bad guys' SUV, KITT's left headlight smashes (you can see the metal ring fly off on impact) but it's intact for the rest of the chase. This is before KITT's repair system is turned back on. See more »


K.I.T.T.: I am incapable of happiness. But I will say that it is logical that you are here.
Mike Traceur: Yeah, I know what you mean.

I predict this series will end quickly
23 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've watched the pilot and I'm not impressed. The only similarity to the original series is a "lone wolf" personality gets a fancy car. That's it...

Where's the humor of the Knight Industries Two Thousand? The voice of this new "Kitt" doesn't work for me.

Neither does the "improved" storyline.

I predict this series will end quickly because it doesn't have enough star power to hold the interest of viewers and doesn't give viewers that nostalgic feeling...I grew up with the original but I'm not seeing much of the original in this poorly done retread.
