1) A Good Knight's Work, when KITT turbos into the bad guy's apartment.
2) KITTNap, when KITT bests his own personal record by jumping between parking structures.

:dash: I think the jump inthe episode: A Nice Indecent Little Town had about the best of the series when KITT jumped from an alley clearing the street to land in the alley across the way.
Very spectacular.

I'm probably alone in saying this but aside from just a regular jump this jump had something unique.In Knightmares,kitt turbo boosts to hit the side of the chamber to generate a hit to the main pipe that would drain the are where the girl almost drowned to death going from an upper level to a lower level while hitting the side chamber.So i would say he went from a 50 foot level to a 70 foot jump upward then hitting the lower level 100 feet.Middle level,up wayyyy down.

The alley jump in Knightmares or the one used in Lost Knight and Knight Flight To Freedom (I don't remember in what episode it was from originally).

The one most impressive to me was from Halloween Knight where they pursue a car that just tried to kill michael and KITT jumps through a big peice of glass or plastic on a white truck. The reason this is most impressive to me is because it looks professional and it looks like nothing went wrong it looks the best handled stunt.

Without a doubt the best!! Even the distance and height that was achieved to clear the main road. This was KR at it's best! Def. my favorite. So many good stunts to be had on KR, but this one was the best.

I agree with A Nice Little Indecent Town. Even though they didn't even try to hide the ramp, it's just too cool. I think the major reason is because they left it at full speed rather than slow motion.

The one from the beginning of White Bird is also very nice, they had so many camera angles and the car fell so evenly, no nose dives or anything.

A Nice Indecent Little Town without a doubt!!! One of the FEW real-time (No slow-mo) jumps where KITT jumped from one alley to another, clearing a trafficy street!

10min of turbo boosts according to the guy who made the video. He says it includes every turbo boost from all 4 seasons in order, I already found one missing, when kitt jumps the tractor trailer in the pilot when they are trying to smash him head on.

But even so this may help the discussion.

I don't remember episode titles, so I'll just list my favorite jumps from the YouTube video.

KITT jumping across the street from alley to alley.

KITT jumping over the prison wall.

KITT jumping over the helicopter.

KITT jumping and nicking that concrete building-type thing.

KITT jumping in reverse out from underground.

KITT jumping into the upper-floor apartment.

KITT jumping... into -- or rather through a jumping KARR!

KITT jumping over a red pickup.

KITT jumping over the warehouse.

KITT jumping from one parking garage roof to another.

KITT jumping out of the underground, flooding tunnel.

I read the recent KRO interview with the guy behind the new TV show. He seemed to imply that they were going to do something cooler than the jumps of the original show. He also pointed out how expensive car stunts are to produce, so instead of "cooler" or "newer," substitute "cheaper."

I didn't like the new KR telefilm, for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons -- shallow from a dramatic perspective, I admit, but essential in my mind to KR -- was the lack of a turbo boost.
