Speed Demons
6 December 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

KITT is described as the eighth wonder of the world, as a race show host is astounded that a car can talk. It is a shame that he never saw Michael Knight talking to his watch.

The Knight Foundation are sponsoring a charity dirt track race. A motorcycle racer died a year before and the Foundation wants to make sure that the death was an accident.

Speed Demons is rather a routine episode looking at the world of motor bike dirt track racing. The bad guy is broadly etched. Amazingly KITT is not equipped to go over steep sand inclines and rolls over as it attempts to do it. KITT's tyres do not have the traction and needs to be modified.

Devon shows off his motorcycling skills in this episode including the revelation that he used to take part in the TT races.

Character actor Kurt Fuller made his screen debut as a cameraman.
