Not Knight Rider, but automobile sci-fi none the less.
23 November 2002 | by thenexusoneSee all my reviews

Viper was Dodge's way of introducing their new Viper car to the public and it got the point across. The beginning of the series was simple, but for the most point well written. It surrounds a ingenious scientific engineer who designs a weapon to fight crime that doesn't use bullets. The reason is because the scientist himself was placed in a wheelchair due to a stray bullet in a shootout between the police and criminals. The car metamorphs from a red Viper to a gray heavily plated Dodge Viper and uses a energy projectile tazer gun called the Pulse Missile, along with a mobile camera unit not unlike the one used in Speed Racer. It took a little while to carry over, but the CGI grafix were up to speed for the time in television. The characters were stereotyped, but enjoyable. Overall a good series until towards the end when it got bounced around for a time slot and then the cast was changed too many times. It was the automobile sci-fi for the 90s and should be seen not only as a tv series but an add for Dodge Motors, just check the credits, they funded it. Take the time because its not Knight Rider, but it fills a void. Look for it early mornings, and I mean early (4a.m. Central Standard) on the Sci-fi channel. Enjoy.
