interesting it says "season One" and not "complete series" begs the question; when was this put into production?
I want it, but this can be misleading and lead one to think that there is a S2 in pre-production or something..
Hmm...i'm curious to know more! LOL

Just got to open it during a lunch break. The quality of the package is really nice printing job. The knight rider logo is embossed and most of the print is matte except for kitt which has a nice gloss sheen on it. Same too for the back, all matte except for the strip of pr shots.

I'd be interested to know if they altered any of the music for the DVD.
KITT: I walked right into that one, didn't I?

I had to scoff at the comment on the back of the box "Is back and better than ever.... um.. NOT!

Glad to see they've included the pilot movie as a feature. That's awesome.

It's kewl to have the show on DVD. I want!

I'd like to know if there's more footage in any of the episodes? Specifically, I hope they've included the entire KARR fight scene, not just the one shown on air.

Anyone notice that Carrie's pic is missing on the back, but not Charles or Alex's???

After seeing this, maybe I will go out and get a copy...just for the featurettes...

NBC sent us the disc early for the purpose of review, sorry I should have made that clear.

Did notice Sydney Tamiia Poitier missing from the back, not sure what to make of that. Also, Gary's name is missing from the package (though thanked on the gag reel and the normal episode areas). Seems kinda telling...

Will have to compare aired episodes one by one to these copies, no callouts are obvious for additional footage, but I doubt it. They made so much EPK material and a bunch of online content that is completely missing on the disk unfortunately.

But the lightsaber fight is kinda cool...

I'll say. Sounds like they don't want to be synonymous with the franchise. I'm at work and can't check at the moment, but is Glen Larson's name on the back of the original DVD set covers?

I've said this before, but the set saying "Season One" and not "The Complete Series" is probably just Universal playing it safe since the show's fate was likely still undecided at the time of manufacturing. Older shows that lasted only one season usually get "The Complete Series" listing because their fates were already sealed years ago. Even now (as evidenced by recurring threads asking about a possible Season 2), some people still aren't sure.

The artwork definitely looks good and fits well with the show.

Yea that is kind of odd how certain people remain uncredited... I guess poor old Gary Scott Thompson is NBC's fall guy for this one... Idk...

I don't think calling the Pilot episode should be listed as a feature. It's not like they could have omitted it because it set up the characters and basic elements even if they did ignore some things here and there, so I'll just ignore that.

It looks good. Would have preferred the Promo tv spots to be included as they were awesome but I'm just glad it's coming out.

I have noticed some Region 0 sets on Ebay but they have the NBC logo when the episodes play themselves. Got a feeling they are bootlegs.

The genuine DVD release wouldn't have the NBC logo , I fear that could be a bootleg set.
