Earlier we mention that you see a 'stick on dash' when MK is on the hood.
Take a look at the last scene in Hearts of Stone, the scene just before the final quick race, and 30 secs before the man and woman hug.
KITT pulls up with MK and the girl, and you can see the dash is not all there. There is a black area between the dash and the screen, clearly a gap. Very noticable.
I also saw the steering wheel with MK driving it as they pull up to the empty shed where the girl is about to steal the 250k from him.
A good one for errors.
Also - and this is for the real Pros here about the Auto Cruise 1: why early in the series when KITT was driving, did the seat look a very odd shape, not like the passenger seat. Yet further on, it looks far more convincing. Was it simply money, and speed of setting up that rather than cutting a genuine seat, they did it with something themselves??
here's my take on the seat change
this is the scene in the pilot we've all seen..
it shows the driver basically is the seat with his head almost hitting the blackout screen anhis shoulders and arms are the side of the seat he's either sitting on the back seat or on the floor infront of the rear seat
here's a scene from season 4 kftf
it shows here that its now more a seat with the centre open at the bottom for the driver to feed his hands through
its here i must confess the producers,directors,editors made errors that they either didnt notice(surely not),or didnt think anyone would care about regarding how kitt drove in autocruise we all know and even back then knew how it was done but by season 4 they didnt seem to care that you could clearly see arms and hands protruding from either of the seats i reffer to the above clip and this one from SOTR from 4
clearly you can see orange arms coming out of the seat and the seat height was to high(hero car seats were lower down DH,s head)
for me as i,ve stated more than once the worst display of autocruise error has to be in KILLER KITT after he smashes MK into the news stand he reverses and well look
what posessed the director to shoot at an angle that clearly shows a pair of hands turning a steering i,ve never worked out i saw that error when i first watched the episode 20 odd years ago and didnt need a freeze frame dvd player
anyway all these errors we find will never distract us from continuing to love this show as i still do
