Many, many people hate Team Knight Rider. For its very human cars, for its not-always-great special effects, for its lack of Michael Knights and KITTs...
I understand that completely. TKR never had that special quality that made its parent show, Knight Rider, so successful.

However, TKR isn't quite the failure many people think it must be. Here's why:
1. The characters are memorable. At first they were all a bit stereotypical and flat, but later episodes developed their personalities more. And I slowly found that I greatly enjoyed the cars' personalities. Snobby Dante and agressive Attack Beast were especially likeable.
2. The stories were pretty good at times. "The Blonde Woman", "K.R.O.", "Angels In Chains", and "Legion of Doom" are episodes I especially enjoyed. "Legion of Doom" was a bit sad since the series ended before the story could be ended, but it was still an intriguing episode.
3. It had good music. Have you heard the TKR theme? Well you should. It's made me forget most of my complaints about the show, and is much easier to hum than the original KR theme.
4. It's funny. Well, maybe not the somewhat dated pop culture references, but the characters have a tendency to make amusing smart remarks.
5. And when humans fight each other, they look like they might actually be fighting. Certainly the scenes are more convincing than most KR human fight scenes.

To summarize: No, it's not a brilliant show. But if you're bored and want to see something with lots of talking cars and a (mostly) decent plot, you might want to give this show a try. I know I liked it, and maybe you will too.

I'm probably going to be the only 5-star rating here. I love this series, os hard I own props and production items from it. Nothing will ever kill that love. Some will find it too cartoony, or too strange. And that's okay. it was VERY MUCH a 90's primetime action series. And it shows.

This show has its merits, but the title says it all. Take the corniness of the Power Rangers and mix it with the Knight Rider idea, and that pretty much sums this show up. I think it was also meant for a younger audience. It has a tween feel about it, but adults can appreciate it too as long as they don't take it too seriously.

KITT isn't in this show, by the way. This show deals with the young people who the torch has been passed down to. There is now a team, and there is also a team of AI vehicles, all with their own personalities. No surprise here, it is the vehicles that steal the show.

The plot line was developed enough, though as I've said--it is geared for the teen audience--and held together. It isn't my favorite of the Knight Rider sequels, but it isn't terrible. I do like the cars.

It's ahhh Ok I guess. The newer one was much better than this one. They just went to far with it. I guess explains why it only lasted one season. As far as remakes goes the newer Knight Rider with the Mustang in it that can change into a truck etc.. Was way better than this one. I really didn't like this one.
