Like any good cheese, Knight Rider has only grown more pungent with age. Decked out in alarming '80s fashions (check out that blue Members Only jacket in the pilot), earnestly spouting some of the worst dialogue in the history of television, the absurdly handsome Hasselhoff radiates the unique charisma that's made him a Teutonic cult figure. In addition to the 21 episodes of the first season, Knight Rider: Season One includes a 1991 TV movie, Knight Rider 2000, that tried to launch a revamped series set in the near future (lacking the cheerful touch of creator Glen Larson, the attempt sank into oblivion) and brief interview footage (including Hasselhoff describing when he read the original script: "It was glowing in my hands. This was gold.") It's unlikely this boxed set will appeal to anyone who didn't become a fan of the show at an impressionable age, but for those fans, Knight Rider: Season One is gold. --Bret Fetzer

If you like shows with cars, good looking women and fun action storylines. You'll like this.
Great show, not your typical dark series, just fun and exciting!
Buy it! It will be worth it.
Oh yeah....beautiful women!
To us this was the best thing on TV besides Smurfs and He-Man and it appealed to our parents as well. KR was like James Bond meets Herbie the Love Bug. While our mothers drooled over the blue-eyed hunky Hasselhoff, we were captivated by the ominous-looking but friendly talking black Trans Am, K.I.T.T. (Knight Industries Two Thousand) we giggled everytime theives tried to steal KITT and failed, and we cried when KITT got destroyed (but they -always- managed to rebuild him).
The visual quality of these discs is damn pretty good. It would've been nice if they had director/actor interviews and maybe some behind the scenes words with George Barris (the guy who built all the KITT cars for the show) I can't say I care for the double sided discs, as they are terribly easy to smudge.
I loved the transformation part however i thought if it can transform to more than just a car like KAR did it would be even more interesting.
Over All Superb Work.
The DVD is one of the best I've seen when it comes to putting a seasons worth of shows on DVD. To begin with the pricing is great. Too many shows, STAR TREK & CSI, gouge there fan base with DVD prices between seventy & one hundred dollars. I love DVD's that allow the viewer to play all the episodes back to back. I hate it when I get returned to the main menu after each episode. This DVD has a nice amount of extras and includes the preview for each episode. It also has a written summary of each episode. Adding the 1991 movie of KR 2000 was an unexpected and much appreciated bonus. I don't care for the movie that much and would never purchase it by itself but am glad the DVD producers included it with this DVD package.
All in all, most television shows that are released in season format could learn a thing or two from the producers of this DVD package. I await the remaining 3 seasons. I'm also looking forward to the release of MAGNUM PI (season one) on DVD.
This a great release from Universal of the Knight Rider who first season with extras bonus goodies.
The box set here contains 8 discs. I don't know if the region 1 (US/Canada) is actually eight discs and Amazon have written it wrong? Or if the R1 version is on flip side discs. But nothing is any different, except that the Australian release has got English subtitles.
I had not seen Knight Rider since the 80's when I was a kid. And after watching the whole first season I still had no memory of anything from it except the intro of it. But I love it all over again. It is true what they say about the Knight 2000 and K.I.T.T, there was not a kid in the world who did not want to be in that passenger seat with Michael Knight riding in that black Pontiac Trans-am. I was one of them, and even after all these years, I still would like to have a car like that, tho wouldn't everybody?
In the box set of the first series you get all 21 episodes. There is a few dust speckles in the film from time to time. But it's not enough o notice unless you're specifically looking for it on purpose, you might just notice it now and then, but it's nothing of a problem I wouldn't think. You also get 2 episode long, or 2 hour long, pilot episode where Michael Long becomes Michael Knight and is first introduced to K.I.I.T (the Knight Industry Two Thousand) which is the computer inside of the Knight 2000 (Trans-Am). Some things in the series are a little dated, but quite a lot still holds up today. I didn't think the plots where old fashioned or anything, the only thing that you could be picky about is the 1991 T.V movie "Knight Rider 2000" which is on the last disc as a bonus. The movie is OK, but doesn't hold up against the series.Read more ›
