Worst episode ever...

Post by pezze87 » Wed Mar 26, 2008 8:26 am

I know there were much of beautiful episodes of Knight Rider... But there were some bad, too. What do you all think was the worst episode ever? I mean in which one were no action, an awful story and so on..

I think it was Slammin' Sammy's Stunt Show Spectacular or Voodoo Knight...

Voodoo Knight. It wasn't really a good episode plus it has the added sting of being the last episode.

I think most people are going to pick "Voo Doo Knight" just as they'd probably pick "K.I.T.T. Vs. K.A.R.R." or "Junk Yard Dog" for their favorite episodes. Boring.

Just to be different, one bad episode I dislike is "Knight Sting." The whole episode was rather boring with the same annoying tune played throughout and seemingly at the beginning of every scene. Plus, K.I.T.T. was disguised through most of the episode and barely did anything.

I realize I'm in the minority on that one but I liked Knight Sting. Not only did it directly incorporate the whole FLAG cast into the mission, it also played very well off of one of my favorite movies, "The Sting".

Here's one that came to mind that angered me:

Knight and Knerd

I really want to punch that guy. You all know who I'm talking about.

I love KR too much to see any episode as bad although Voodoo Knight could've been better, for saying its the last episode it seems half hearted, I know it wasn't planned to be the last episode but I feel they could've done something more. 'The Scent of Roses' (the planned season finale) also seemed very rushed, I could tell there were scenes that would've been more fleshed out more and there was so much more that could've been expanded on. I still think those episodes are good though, just should've been better.

That's why I prefer to think of the Scent of Roses is the final episode, just as it should have been.

Never liked Mouth of the Snake myself.

Me neither. It ended up being 40 % Michael & KITT and 60 % David Doulton from the failure that was Code of Vengeance.

Personally I don't like "Trust Doesn't Rust". There is far too much repeated footage from earlier episodes, Shots that are supposed to KARR are quite clearly KITT, the voice box for KARR appears to be mounted in a silver background with nothing else. What should have been a great episode is turned into a poor one due to countless mistakes.

My personal favourite is "Knight of the Juggernaut" but I also really like "Nobody does it better", "A good knights work", "Lost Knight" and "Halloween Knight"
Michael : alright gimme all the turbo boost you've got.

Kitt : michael we may not clear.

Michael : No choice Pal, HIT IT!!!!!

VDK doesn't have much typical KR action but I think it gets slated too much because it was entertaining in terms of comedy value.

Knight Song is without doubt the worst one. Where was the action??? It just had KITT teaching a bunch of kids how to sing and make a good song or something.

I just happened to be watching Knight of the Juggernaut tonight.

It just reminded me... Jennifer Knight was a real bitch, huh?

Bonnie sure was hot.

Jennifer Knight?? Oh yesss!!! But to turn back to topic, I think that Trust doesn't rust would have had an excellent story, but really was made bad... And one thing 'til today i never understood: how could KARR be there in one piece after the explosion in the episode of the 1st season...???? :shock:

I really don't like The Scent of Roses. Everything about it makes me cringe, from the bad dialogue to Michael's horrendous taste in sweaters.

Most of season 4 is total trunks, to be fair.

I watched the first three seasons of Knight Rider but only saw an episode or two of season four. I don't remember if they changed the time or day the series was on back then. I do remember only watching a couple of episodes in the final season and didn't care for it. I don't remember what the episodes were.

LET IT BE ME. So different comparing to the rest of the great 2nd season. Horrible plot, and the ending... :?

Knight Rider 2000.

Yeah, I know it's not an episode, but people continue to consider this the sequel to the series.

Another vote here for "Let it Be Me," as one of the worst episodes ever of KR. And season four could've been better. I did like Knight Sting, for the most part, but, I didn't like the idea of KITT being hidden in another car's body. :(

Sorry I haven't posted for a looong time guys. Been rather busy as i'm in the process of joining the Royal Australian Navy. Anyway one episode that makes me cringe is the bloody awful "ride for life" I even refuse to watch it on DVD. I just hate the part at the end when KITT is flashing his lights and opening and closing his doors, they turned KITT into something that looked stupid. And I agree with everyone else as well, Voodoo knight was pretty bad as well!

Not "ride for life" but "race for life" :)

For me, the worst episode is "Deadly Maneuvers" (Season One), because it's very boring and monothonic :roll:
