Storyline

When a young detective is ambushed in a failed police stake out, he is believed to have been killed. In reality, he revives and learns that his face has been altered and his identity has been changed to Micheal Knight. The person responsible for this is Wilton Knight, a dying billionare who, convinced that one man can make a difference, has selected Micheal for the role as a crime-fighter. Now armed with a advanced car called KITT which has the equivalent armor of a battle tank, capable of speeds over 300 MPH and contains an artificial intelligence computer personality as an aide, Micheal agrees to perform his assigned role. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

Goofs

Just after KITT has been taken by the car thieves, KITT returns. However with the kind of car seats the Trans Am has, you can see day light through the passenger seat headrest but not through the drivers seat. Then in the next shot you can clearly see the stunt driver's arms just as 'KITT' pulls up along side Michael Knight. See more »

Quotes

Wilton Knight: [Talking to Michael on his deathbed] Michael, Come closer. You were spared to lead the great fight. Don't turn away in fear. One man can make a difference and you are going to be that man.

THE GREATEST TV SHOW EVER!!!
9 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

I have seen only one other tech show like this, but not as good as this one! I have only watched the repeats on WGN between the years of: 1995-1998. But I have not seen any thing come close to topping this program!

IT IS THE COOLEST!!!
