Brother's Keeper
17 May 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

KITT gets a lot of practice jumping over high walls as he gets Michael and Peter McCord, a convicted murderer out of jail.

McCord may hold the key to find a ticking bomb hidden somewhere in the city. The police are after Michael and KITT, a mobster wants McCord dead. An old friend of Devon used the Knight Foundation to get McCord out of jail and lure him to the mobster in order to save innocent lives.

Michael s impressed by McCord's reluctance to escape jail, McCord pleads his innocence to the killing of his wife.

A rather routine episode with KITT defying physics with such high leaps on autopilot. More impressive is April again downing the typewriter and tweaking with KITT's parts.
