Trivia

K.I.T.T. is always seen driving into the semi-trailer of the Foundation's truck. The logo seen on its side is a knight chess piece. See more »

Goofs

When Mr. Cornelius III enters the cast, it is established that the F.L.A.G. mobile unit has an autopilot, and that Mr. Cornelius III can transition from the trailer to the tractor without having to go outside. However, it can be seen on the tractor that there is no hatch that could connect to the trailer and no corresponding hatch on the trailer itself. Indeed, the sleeping compartment itself is separate from the driver's compartment of the tractor. See more »

Come on its not that bad
4 July 2002 | by Holly_Golightly_See all my reviews

I was a kid when Knight Rider was in its prime time and yes I watch it no matter what. Currently have the reruns of Knight Rider on and I must say there are somethings that bug me. Like every kid in the 80s I loved K.I.T.T. Now for all you people that say David Hasselhoff can't act come on, o.k he's not the best actor in the world but he wasn't that bad, I think he was great for the role, but the things that bug me were like how everytime Michael say something like "K.I.T.T get Devon on the line for me" and Michael would go and press 20 other buttons and the reuse of footage. I must admint David Hasselhoff was good looking at the time, just about in every episode Michael would do his good dee and get the girl at the end, well they did drop to his feet, just about all apart from Bonnie, thats the only time we see Michael try so hard and get turn down, but you can see they are more then just friends. Michael and Devon I can say are bit like Maxwell Smart and the Chief off Get Smart but the only thing was Michael was a lot smarter but it still irritated Devon like Max did the Chief. Some episodes did a get a bit boring and could have been better, but over all Knight Rider is still a good TV series.
