I did like this show when it was on TV. There was chemistry between KITT and Michael and either of the 2 female leads were great as well. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants nostalgia in their collection. But I'm a picky person and to me the only problem with the series itself was the fake music, (like Richard Simmons uses in his workout videos.) To me that is totally wrong. If an episode is to have a good story, use real music, nothing cheesy and fake. Overall, still a good show.
"Engage Turbo DVD, KITT"

"I realize a lot of people out there don't like Knight Rider, but this review isn't for them! (They shouldn't even be looking at this product description if they're not interested in the show.) Apparently enough people DO like the show, since there's a new Knight Rider series airing on NBC and the release of this new boxed set.
The box is awesome...at least until the shrinkwrap is removed (reason why in a moment). This is by far one of the coolest box designs for a DVD set. Press a button at the lower-right, and a red LED scanner effect turns on with a few (very short) seconds of the show's theme music. I do think Universal should have spent a few pennies more to lengthen the audio sample. It would also have been "neater" if the effect was triggered by opening the box rather than by a push-button switch, even if it means giving up the demo "Try Me" feature for people who haven't purchased it yet.
The bad news about the packaging is a cardstock sheet on the back which is NOT affixed to the box. (Normally this kind of artwork is attached with glue dots, but not this time.) There are printed instructions for changing the LED batteries on the back of this card, and it's too big to fit inside the box after opening. So...what to do with it?? Battery instructions (and possibly a disc index) should have been printed on a card attached to the inside of the box, and the outer cardstock should have been attached to the box. Why is this an issue? Well, I for one consider packaging to be part of the product, not simply a "container" for the discs.
The discs themselves are in slim DVD cases, two discs per case, and they're single-sided encodings! Finally, fans can watch Knight Rider episodes on DVD without the technical flaws and stalls inherent with double-sided discs. There are also lots of bonus features not included with the original releases. Notably missing from the bonus features, however, are bloopers, gag reels, and NBC promotional spots. Since the size and price of this item clearly suggests it being targeted at fans, material that fans would be interested in (such as outtakes, interviews, KITT guest spots and cameos, etc.) would have been a nice addition, even at a slightly higher price.
If you're a fan of the show and haven't bought the individual season DVDs yet, get this set instead. If you've already bought the individual seasons (as I had), get this set anyway to replace the inferior double-sided discs. Even with this set's shortcomings, it's still nicely done."

"This was one of the best shows of the 80's if not the best and while I have all four on DVD I am going to get this set because it is what it is. The show was about a man and his talking car K.I.T.T. While talking cars are getting closer to reality with GPS and things their will never be another show like this. I want to take a minute and say that the New Knight Rider is AWSOME and people just need to give it a chance it will hit it's stride. You know this isn't the only set coming out in a big set on the 21st of October. The Incredible Hulk is coming out the exact same way. So next week let's all reve up and help Knight Rider."
