TV Shows - Knight Rider (1982)

Knight Rider is an American television series that originally ran from September 26, 1982, to August 8, 1986. The series was broadcast on NBC and starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a high-tech modern-day knight fighting crime. Michael Knight drove a sentient talking car with artificial intelligence. Conceived and produced by Glen A. Larson, the show was an instant hit. "I wanted to do The Lone Ranger with a car", Larson said in The Last Great Ride. "Kind of a sci-fi thing, with the soul of a western."

1 I think the list above was supposed to be "Super Pursuit Mode" not "Pursuit Mode" since "Pursuit Mode" was on KITT from the start. The one thing I think could have been a bone the fish change was the convertible mode. While as hokey and over used (3 times in one episode) as super pursuit mode was, the idea of a drop-top T-roof car was a blatant "look how cool the car is" addition. -- Submitted By: () on June 13, 2012, 6:55 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Wow, I loved the "evil twin" episodes (KARR and Garthe Knight) as a kid. I think those are the few episode storylines I actually remember. It was nice having some supervillians for Michael and KITT to face off against instead of the usual '80s TV crooks of the week. (Bank robbers, arms smugglers, drug dealers.) Just rented the Garthe episodes from Netflix and they were still fun. I guess I'm in the minority, but I thought Hasselhoff was perfect for this campy show. He was a likable protagonist; good-looking enough for female viewers, but not too pretty to turn off male viewers. He also had a Shatneresque hamminess that fit the material he was given well. Also William Daniels was great at pulling off the somewhat snobby smart-asses KITT. Every kid in America (and probably quite a few adults) wanted one of those talking super-cars. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 18, 2010, 1:54 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I love the episodes with KARR, and Knight of the Juggernaught was pretty cool two parter which introduced the SPM mode. The last episode "Smell of the Roses" was a true tearjerker. The show never really jumped, although never been that outstanding either. -- Submitted By: (blizzzzman) on June 11, 2010, 3:26 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 This show was a guilty pleasure. Not the greatest ever but good for escapist purposes. -- Submitted By: (JamesO) on December 10, 2009, 3:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 some of the plots may be a bit over the top now as an adult, but i thoroughly enjoyed this show til the end. i got excited when KITT got new gadgets in the later seasons. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 8, 2009, 6:11 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 This show was a failure from day one. You have the no talent bum David Hasselhoff, horrible scripts, an obnoxious mouthy computer, bad acting all around. They tried to make the show light hearted and funny. I would have made it more dramatic, I would have ditched David Hasslehoff, I would have hired better writers, I would have ditched the idea of the car thinking for itself. I also would have made the car amphibious (including being a submarine like James Bond). -- Submitted By: (quimbyt) on October 8, 2009, 12:00 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I really don't get why I liked a show where the car was a better actor then the main character, and predictably the car did a jump before every break (well, I liked The dukes of Hazard, too) but somehow it worked for me...at least until they used the stupid doppelganger-plot (twice!). -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on September 5, 2009, 7:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 HA!!! If you thought THIS show was lame, you should've seen the recent '08-09 remake. Good LORD it was horrible, made this show seem like a brilliant work of art by comparison. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on June 28, 2009, 2:17 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Totally agree, Chubby Rain! How Hasselhoff had a career after this, I'll never understand! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on March 26, 2009, 9:26 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Only the 80's could create such a monstrosity... "KITT's nemesis, KARR had similar changes. KARR now stands for Knight Auto-Cybernetic Roving Robot-Exoskeleton. KARR was originally designed for military combat. KARR has the ability to transform from vehicle mode into a a large wheeled robotic exoskeleton instead of KITTs "Attack Mode"." -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on March 22, 2009, 11:12 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
