Knight Rider

Good Day at White Rock - S1-E4

Revealing mistake: After we first see the pack of bikers riding, it cuts to two guys on bikes. They're being towed on a platform of some sort because the never turn their handlebars or front wheel but still turn with the curves in the road.

Deadly Maneuvers - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Michael starts to scrape the blue paint off the shell, he scratches across the blue band and you see a few scrape marks where the paint is gone and it's white, like the shell, underneath. In the close up, it's slowly scraping such a small potion of the paint off and you see it's yellow underneath now.

Deadly Maneuvers - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Michael notices the accident report folder, the folder is touching the red candy basket. When goes to steal it by putting it under the basket, the folder is now further away.

Knight Rider [Pilot; a.k.a. Knight of the Phoenix] (1) - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: If you look closely at KITT throughout the pilot, the position of his scanner lens changes from being the normal scanner that we're all used to, and the scanner being at the very tip of the front bumper. (The latter case is because the car was used for a promo shots to sell to NBC, and after the show was picked up, they changed KITT's look, but still used the earlier shots).

No Big Thing - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: At the end when Michael is driving Devon in K.I.T.T, there is a truck behind Devon which isn't behind Michael, depending on who is talking in the shot.

Knight Rider [Pilot; a.k.a. Knight of the Phoenix] (1) - S1-E1

Revealing mistake: There is a scene where KITT drives over to Michael, and you can see the drivers seat is really a guy dressed up in a light brown suit to look like a car seat. You can see for a visor that its a glass panel made to look like a hollow head rest, but you plainly see the guy take away his hand off the steering wheel.

Deadly Maneuvers - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Michael and K.I.T.T. go to rescue LT. Ladd off the firing range,the steering wheel isn't K.I.T.T.s usual steering wheel, it has metal bars coming out to the handgrips.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: Across the whole show you see the interior of KITT as being futuristic and curved towards the driver. Also you notice the steering wheel isn't a circular wheel, but a futuristic 'half wheel' with handles. But when you see shoots from a distance you see stunt men driving the car, you can see a normal steering wheel and a normal dash.

The Topaz Connection - S1-E16

Factual error: A secret file is password-protected on a computer, requiring a six-digit numerical access code. KITT states that the possibilities "are virtually unlimited." In truth, if each digit can be 0 through 9 (numerical meaning no letters or symbols), the possibility is 1 in 10^6, or 1 in a million. A supercomputer like KITT should have no problem running each number systematically until a correct code is found.

Circus Knights - S3-E22

Other mistake: Just after Michael finds Devon in the trailer, as he gets in K.I.T.T you see him put the gear into D and then he reverses. Then it shows you him putting the gear into R and then drives off. Looks like they got the footage the wrong way round in the edit.

Brother's Keeper - S2-E3

Plot hole: At the end of the episode, KITT has to travel about 45 miles in under 8 minutes. That means KITT would have to travel a little under 360 mph for the entire time. KITT couldn't travel that fast until season 4 when he got Super Pursuit Mode, and we never see the speedometer read that high even once.

Show generally

Factual error: Realistically, there is no way someone can be thrown straight up from the driver's seat of a Pontiac Trans-Am, even with T-tops. Whoever was being shot straight up would probably break their legs on the crossbar that's adjacent to the windshield.

Answer: KITT didn't choose to go off the cliff in Goliath Returns, it just happened as he tried to avoid Goliath. Just 'cus it happened, doesn't mean It's gonna cure his fear of "flying"
