"One man can make a difference," intones a dying millionaire--well, one man and a superduper car, backed with millions of dollars! Welcome to the deliciously ridiculous world of Knight Rider, the early '80s TV series that launched the career of David Hasselhoff and his magnificent coif (both later seen in the insanely popular Baywatch). After being shot in the face, detective Michael Long is revived as Michael Knight (Hasselhoff) and partnered with an indestructible talking car called K.I.T.T. (voiced by William Daniels). The duo travel around the country solving crimes--basically, it's The Lone Ranger with the car as Silver and Tonto combined. Supported by finicky British executive Devon Myles (Edward Mulhare) and sexy engineer Bonnie Barstow (Patricia McPherson), Knight and K.I.T.T. take on everything from motorcycle gangs to corporate crooks to K.I.T.T.'s own evil twin, K.A.R.R.

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

    It's hard to match the original classic series, but the new Knight Rider manages to be fun and cool. It's a little lightweight, to begin with. This is pure saturday afternoon popcorn TV. So don't expect Lost or the new Battlestar. I like Val Kilmer as the voice of Kitt, and I also warmed to the Mustang after a while. The new lead actor is good in a different way to Hasselhoff was, he seems a little more vulnerable.

    If you like shows with cars, good looking women and fun action storylines. You'll like this.

    Awesome remake of a classic. Not a Ford guy, more a GM, but that Mustang is a beauty! Maybe they can up the ante (if the show returns) with a fine Camaro SS!
    Great show, not your typical dark series, just fun and exciting!
    Buy it! It will be worth it.
    Oh yeah....beautiful women!

    - British Agent Cassandra Banks: "KITT?" (turns to Mike Traceur) "You're talking to your truck?"
    - KITT: "It is a pleasure to meet you, Cassandra."
    - Cassandra: "And he's talking to me?"
    - Mike: "Let's see Bond's car do that."

    I think the show missed out on an opportunity here. How awesome would it have been if a Ford Pinto played host to KITT's A.I.? It's epic work trying to make a Pinto seem sexy. Anyway, this new KNIGHT RIDER series lasted all of one season, during which its viewing audience mostly went "Meh" and after which the network executives went "Meh." That's about the surest way to get the plug pulled on a show. For enthusiasts of the original 1982 series, this remake will be worth looking up, mostly because it's not a remake as much as a continuation. David Hasselhoff's cameo in the pilot movie sanctions it as such. But this show's flaws ultimately sink it.

    The new KNIGHT RIDER gets hooked up with today's technical advances, and I guess I'm talking as much about the advances as they relate to film-making. This show is bigger, glitzier, infinitely more hi-tech. It's still very much a guilty pleasure. KITT's A.I. - now updated to the Three Thousand model - is housed in a black 550 HP Ford Shelby GT500KR Mustang with crazy specs, the sexiest of which is the chameleon function. KITT can now shapeshift into other Ford models (which officially makes this show champion of blatant product placements). KITT can hack into any computer device, play havoc with any security system. It also comes equipped with a bulletproof nanoskin, a 3-D object duplicator, and a submarine function. This car ain't no hooptie.

    An 80-minute-long movie in 2008 launched the new series.

    Ahhh... The early 1980's. Reagan was president, new wave dominated the radiowaves and MTV actually played MUSIC VIDEOS! Ask anyone who grew up during this period what their favorite non-animated show was as a kid and they'll probably say "Knight Rider." KR, as its affectionately called by some fans, may seem quirky and obscure nowadays with its atari centipede sound effects, poofie aqua-net hairdo's, over-acting and "sooo not the original artist" song usage, but we didn't care...

    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 was a big fan of the original series when I was a child. I have been enjoying watching the original series again and am delighted to find that I enjoy it just as much as I did then. When I heard about the new remake of it, I was curious.

    One warning to fans of the original series...it is not good to watch this with an expectation that it is going to be like the original. The two main weaknesses of the new series is the flashy but very loose plot and how they butchered that wonderful theme song. The plot line has some very interesting ideas, but a lot of times after watching an episode--when it comes to recounting it...you just seem to remember the car chases and sexy women. KITT is more computer-like than the original series, though he still has his charm. I was very disappointed in the episode that featured KARR, KITT's evil twin. Though the episode was interesting, KARR didn't really have much of an appearance. When he finally shows up, he dies within five minutes.

    However, I do like the new series. It has its merits. The original series may have been corny, but it had a better developed plot. The new series is very flashy and has a loose plot, but it has a few interesting ideas--for instance, Mike's amnesia about certain events that happened to him when he was a soldier. The Knight Foundation has a whole team now of interesting characters--a nerdy scientist, a sexy linguist, a paternal head of the project, and two other shady characters that seem to have ties to other government agencies. As I've said, it is best to watch it with no expectation that it is like the old series, but it is entertaining.
