Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Series Info

A former cop gets a new identity and teams with a talking supercar to fight crime after a wealthy benefactor saves his life. The chiseled lead actor had his fans, but the show was truly driven by the sleek, droll automobile KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand), a customized Pontiac Trans-Am that kept the hero on the straight and narrow between fistfights and female conquests. A TV-movie reunited man and car in 1991, and a sequel series, `Team Knight Rider,' ran on ABC in 1997-98.
Creator: Glen A. Larson

Critics Consensus: This car can do anything -- except paper over how tiresomely silly Knight Rider's concept is.
