Plot hole in Kitt The Cat?

How did Michael get Devon to agree to let Griffin get away with the burgalaries? Devon himself was burgled by either Raymond Fallon or Griffin. He didn't deserve it so why would he let him get away with it Scot free? If Devon got burgled it must mean other people who didn't deserve to be burgled als...

Did Universal eventually fix the DVD issues?

I bought my box set of the entire series in late 2009, I was reading through some old threads and noticed people complaining that season 3 had been heavilly tampered with. It seems to me most of the issues are not present on my DVD's. Lost Knight seems fine, the sound effects have been restored duri...

Re: Your KR guilty pleasures

Nice topic idea! My favourite episode would have to be Brother's Keeper from season 2. I just love everything about it-the jail break, Devon sticking up for Michael, proving a convicted mans innocence, Michael and KITT as fugitives, the continuing gag of "Nobody's driving!", all while the...

Your KR guilty pleasures

It's Knight Rider, and no KR is bad, but which episodes do you enjoy or watch frequently/have in your top episodes that are generally disliked or considered bad episodes or that never appear in many posters top episodes? I quite liked KittNap from season 4. I didn't think Voodoo Knight was as bad as...

Re: Marry KRistmas to all, and to all a good Knight

KR certainly didn't have many or any Christmas themed epiosdes.

Real shame given how many other ideas they recycled to death.

What would Knight Rider have been like had KITT been female?

It certainly would have made for a different kind of relationship between Michael and KITT. Hell would have made for some funny scenes between Bonnie/April and KITT/Michael. I don't think it would have worked very well though. I must say KITT does sound more like a female name. An idea they never us...

Re: Knight Rider season 5

Bring in April and have her work in unison with Bonnie. They needed another character to base the odd story off. They had done every idea to death. Having April would have had more possible story ideas, friends or relatives of hers in trouble or as possible villains. In all honesty though, the show ...

Would an acid pit also destroy the molecular bonded shell? He didn't try the grappling hook or turbo boost even once floating in the pit either.

Re: Why didn't KITT do anything when the forklift had him in

Michael tells Kitt to turbo bost out of the container box and KITT replies "Negative Michael, I cannot generate enough traction to penetrate steel". So that confirms in a round about sort of a way he can turbo boost from a standing or minimal rolling start, but perhaps his wheels need to b...

Couldn't he have turbo boosted off the plates? I know discussion has centred around him needing traction for a good turbo boost however in past and previous episodes (Kittnap) and Good Knights Work, it was confirmed he could do a minimal turbo boost as he told Michael he couldn't get enough momentum...

This was season 2, 1983 or so. Sites like this didnt exist.

Aside from the commentary on knight of the phoenix, I definately feel it is the one missing piece of the package..at least for maybe 40% of the episodes anyway. Most of the core cast is still alive excluding Edward but some of the people associated with writing and Glen of course will not be around ...

Why do people hate Mouth Of The Snake?

I absolutely loved this episode, It always in my top 10 easily. A lot of people think Michael takes a back seat in this episode, but if you watch it he actually does get a lot of airtime, he just does less of the snooping/fighting and more of the driving/computing/logic stuff. The emotional scenes w...

Re: Which episode is this from?

I had no idea a portable Pac Man machine would have been common in 1982. It must have been worth hundreds. Then again maybe it wasn't functioning. But a full colour machine like that would have been an amazing thing in 1982. Every kid would want one.

Re: Was Rebecca Holden good?

Yes it does seem strange they would bring in a sidekick for Michael with Peter Parros, but ignore the possibility of having both April and Bonnie. Mind you they brought in RC in season 4 and booted April in Season 3. Apparently Edward Mullhare was a strong advocate for bringing back Bonnie..I wonder...

Did you like the square talking KITT or the 3 lines better?

KITT early on had the red square flashing when he spoke, it was very quickly changed to 3 vertical moving red lines as he spoke. KARR had a slightly different green lines talking dash. I found it a bit of a plot hole that KARR an earlier production line model was using horizontal lines. You would e...

I was watching a very early season 1 episode of KR the other day, don't remember which one but Michael said to Kitt "Okay buddy lets turbo boost" and it felt very weird because there was no obsticle and what happened was Kitt sped up and they raced away. I don't remember this ever being ex...

Re: Super Pursuit Mode

SPM itself didn't bother me, it was more the long drawn out sequence EVERY time it was launched..it felt like a 15 second sequence of stock footage. If it had just been a button lighting up like turbo boost or maybe a 5 second sequence it wouldn't have been so bad.

I always wondered why Michael never carried a weapon. He did have a gun in a couple of shows, and he also made "use" of a stun gun in Knightlines. It was always said it was illegal for him to carry one. I always felt this made him very volunarble. Can only protect him outside, not when hes...

We all love Bonnie, and I think from what I have read on this forum and others it seems fairly established that she was simply better than April. Hence her return in the 3rd season. But was April good not withstanding Bonnie? I mean she was on the show during what some consider its peak in the secon...
