A mixed bag for a season premier
5 April 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

On the surface, 'Knight of the Drones' carries the air of importance. It's a feature-length opener for the third season, offers a facelift for K.I.T.T. and even brings Bonnie back into the fold. But the quality varies wildly throughout. It's a big deal to see Michael tooling around the streets of San Francisco (there's some fantastic scenery here) but the props are surprisingly crude (a boombox Transformer that's pretty iffy). The bad guys consist of a foxy rich lady, her brainy conspirator and an array of goons. Between Jim Brown and the Barbarian Brothers, there's more beef than a meatpacking plant.

It's not bad, but it didn't have to be super-sized. This would've made for a decent standard length premiere.
