Give Me Liberty... or Give Me Death
13 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

Knight Rider stays ahead of the time. There is sabotage on a car race running on alternative fuels and Michael enters as a racer to investigate.

A cable television channel is covering the races and it ends up being a bit too exciting as cars career off the road or explode.

Michael is pursued by a nosy reporter Liberty Cox. When an Arab racer is arrested because his oil producing country has more to gain if this race fails, Michael finds it all a little bit too convenient.

A fun episode, less cheesy than usual and nice to see someone was promoting green car technology all those years ago.
