Despite an onscreen benediction from the Hoff himself, the two-hour pilot movie admittedly clunks a bit, with a few too many cross-country trips and a lack of any real hissable villains. Things improve considerably once the regular series begins, however, as Man and Car face off against the likes of terrorist surfers, nitro-burning street racers, and many other evildoers equipped with a plethora of expendable, easily explodable vehicles.
Formulaically enjoyable as these early bikini-intensive episodes often are, though, things really pick up mid-season, with a genuinely tense three-part story arc that ups the dramatic ante, makes some surprising alterations to the cast roster, and, most importantly, reintroduces KITT's ticked-off cyborg nemesis KARR. The lack of a second season brought an end to this late-blooming creative surge, unfortunately, but, overall, this remains a breezily escapist, slickly helmed revamp that manages to do its daddy proud. Any series that features both KITT morphing into a truck and comes up with a scientific reason for its human leads to strip down to their underwear within the first 10 minutes of its first episode is a show with a firm understanding of exactly what it is. Special features include cast and crew commentary on the pilot, a rather overproduced gag reel, and several featurettes about the original series that should keep gearheads briefly riveted. --Andrew Wright
If you loved the old 80's series of Knight Rider, you'll love this modernised revamp.
There's a good number of cool extras, the menus and navigation are fantastic, and the video and sound quality of the episodes themselves are astounding.
Still, it's a show that has a deep meaning to it: "one man can make a difference", which is something I think society is lacking right now.

While close to the form and feel of the original 80s classic Knight Rider, this updated follow-on lacks the endearing quality of the original. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Robert Davidson

It is a box set of 4 regular DVDs for a DVD player. Not to embarrass you but it has been out for 5 years, and you couldn't tell?

|What happened to the DVD?||
Most likely just like the series didn't take on the air, it probably didn't sell on DVD either.

Patience, it takes time to release tv series on blu ray, and not all of them will be.
