Must bring in my two cents. This is the first time I post about the new Knight Rider. I've already gotten used to the idea that KITT is a Mustang
Like the most, I loved this episode. A good Knight Rider feel to it, like TOS (ok it might seem as I'm re-iterating things here, but well, this thread was 7 pages long when I first found it.) Missed´the usage of theme music when KITT drove to the hospital, had to watch that scene again. Cool, TOS did that very often, I recall the composer dude telling in the DVD-interviews that he deliberately inserted that tune into everything.
I must agree to what someone said here that now it felt like KITT was its own character, though he didn't act on his own save in the ending where he took off tracing the cell phone's signal (or was he told to fo so, don't remember). And yeah, it lacked a car chase (sooo Knight Rider) in the end but probably they ran out of time (though I think that such a chase would've been a must, rather take away from something else to insert atleast a short car chase).
The thing with KITT driving his windows tinted didn't bother me at all for obvious reasons: not making himself stick out. But have to ask, are that black tinted windows legal in US? Since in Finland they're not, save for the rear back windows and the rear window, but the front side window and the windscreen can be only like 10 % or so tinted because the visibility, so driving with that much tinted front windows in here would've gotten you pulled over.
One thing about the sleeping though, why did Mike sleep in the passenger seat? In TOS Michael always slept in the driver's seat. It was actually cooler.

I totally agree. Zoe's character is annoyingly arrogant that way. Like what is she 12 ?!
But great episode ! I hope they do give us a 2nd season.
Oh, and have David Hasselhoff return being "Devon". That would be so cool. And I think even the mention that The Hoff is in the show would promote it !
