Quotes

Russell Maddock: Wonderful. A car with an attitude.
K.I.T.T.: [Kitt is now encased in a '57 Chevy] You'd have a disposition too if you suddenly went from state of the art to this. I may not catch every criminal, but I'll sure look good at the drive in.
Michael Knight: Kitt, there are no more drive-ins.
K.I.T.T.: In that case I'm useless.

Alternate Versions

In the Sci-Fi Channel's airing of the movie, we see numerous edits and one addition from the original NBC version:
  • When we first see Michael Knight, the movie immediately cuts to Michael walking down the dock, instead of showing him drive his boat to the dock.
  • Shawn's birthday party is entirely cut. Kurt drops her off at her apartment, she asks him to run a ballistics on the handgun, and it cuts to where Michael and Devon are speaking in the garage.
  • In the garage scene, the movie blanks out the word "ass".
  • After KITT is reactivated, the movie cuts to a commercial, and then returns with Adam 2020, Kurt and Shawn's unit, already in pursuit to the robbery.
  • The conversation where Devon reveals the fact that police officers might be involved in the gun-running is cut. The movie picks up after a commercial break with KITT complaining of his new body.
  • In the scene where Maddock and Shawn are discussing agendas at her interview, the line goes "I was shot point-blank in the head-"at this second, the rest of the dialogue is blanked out, eliminating "... and I wanna nail the bastard that did it. That's my agenda, what's yours?" The sound is restored as Michael enters the room.
  • When KITT and the Knight 4000 square off, the second uttering of "ass" is blanked out.
  • When Shawn decided to drive Michael's Chevy, after she starts the engine, the movie cuts to a commercial and cuts out the banter between Michael and Shawn on the road as KITT takes them for the ride of their lives, and cuts to near the end where KITT almost crashes into a garbage truck.
  • After Shawn finds out she was betrayed, the movie breaks into a commercial (same place where NBC originally cut for a commercial). The movie returns with Michael on the side of the highway with KITT with Adam 2525 pulling up behind them. The scene where Shawn and Kurt interact in the locker room is cut.
  • The conversation in the prison regarding Watts is entirely cut, and the movie returns from the commercial break with KITT telling Michael that he is detecting some "company." That leads into an extra scene in the movie not seen in the NBC version. It takes place just before we see KITT speeding by the crane on the train tracks. We see a brand new shot of the police cars speeding away from the camera.
  • After Devon is killed, Michael returns to the garage to say goodbye and punches Maddock. The movie then cuts into a commercial and then returns with Shawn telling Michael that she had "the techies look KITT over." The opening dialogue with Shawn admitting to Michael that she had him "pegged as a loser" when they first met was cut.

Most Unintentionally Tragic Movie Ever Made?
14 May 2006 | by DostoyevskyCloneSee all my reviews

I bought 'Knight Rider: Season One' on DVD and enjoyed it well enough. The theme music was awesome as I remember it being and there was certainly enough 80's cheese and style in there that it still retained it's nostalgia for me. The bonus disc for season one was 'Knight Rider 2000' and I was actually looking forward to watching it (I had never seen it)...

...let me just say that if you are on the very edge of contemplating suicide and need one last reason to end it all, watch this movie. There's a real unintentional tragedy surrounding the whole thing - we don't get to see the old KITT, there's no trace of the theme music, there's hardly ANY action, the new KITT-car is TERRIBLE-looking, and the film is filled with that early 90's gloss that so many early 90's films were injected with - there's no sense of self-parody and it's taken all too seriously.

There was something actually kind of cool about Jan Hammer's music in this (he's probably best known for doing Miami Vice) - especially the 'main' theme that plays during the end credits. It certainly doesn't match the original, but it does captures the sense of unintentional desolation, emptiness, and tragedy the movie will evoke in the viewer.
