I have purchased sets from amazon that contain combined DVD seasons multiple times and I have never been disappointing. In general it appears that they are reducing current stock by lumping things together. With this you get a great price. On amazon each of these seasons originally retailed for almost 30 dollars. The box set cost almost 130 dollars at some point. Right now the box set can be purchased for $90!
The main drawback to these bundles is that you do not get the fancy packaging that would be provided with the "Knight Rider: The complete collection" box set. The complete collection box set comes with a whimsical red bar that lights up and plays the theme song. This is actually very creative, especially if you need a large 80's showpiece for some reason. If somehow you are just looking to enjoy the episodes then you might want to consider this deal. It depends on whether or not a red flashing peice of plastic is worth $30 to you.
This bundle of the seasons will take up less space on your shelf, but as i mentioned will be less flashy. The discs that come with this set are supposed to be with 24 dvds. From reading other reviews this implies that the discs are single sided which other reviewers have noted as being a bonus. Apparently, the double sided discs had some issues when it came to consistent quality. This means you should get 12 slim cases with two discs in each case.
I feel that this is a worthwhile bundle if you love the show and you know what you are getting into.
The real fun of the show besides the action is the banter between KITT and Michael and watching them become a high tech version of a buddy cop film/show as the series progresses as well as watching what sort of crazy stunt or feat KITT will have to perform to save them and take down the villain.
Another great aspect of Knight Rider is you can pretty much count on great character actors of the 60s,70s and 80s popping up in fun roles as both victims and villains in the series. Many of whom seemed to pop up in other shows of that era playing the same sort of rolls. You're almost guaranteed to say, "Hey I know that guy/girl!" in pretty much every episode.

This series started with a very good pilot with Richard Basehart as the dying tycoon with a purpose. After he passed away he seemed to take the series with him. Read morePublished 26 days ago by Eric A. Popkoff
