Knight Rider

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

Revealing mistake: When KITT takes part in the race and goes up on two wheels, you can see that the stunt driver is behind the wheel and that a dummy is strapped into the passenger's seat.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: Even after KITT's voice modulator changes to the three bars in the episode "Hearts of Stone," any shot of KITT starting himself up still shows the old voice modulator (a simple red square).

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).

Knight Rider [Pilot; a.k.a. Knight of the Phoenix] (2) - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: During Comtron's Demolition Derby, Michael engages auto control. Michael controls the wheel during the ski mode stunt. When the car drops back on four wheels, Michael is driving with a regular steering wheel instead of KITT's steering wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Knight Rider [Pilot; a.k.a. Knight of the Phoenix] (2) - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: During the Comtron Demolition Derby after Buddy sprays oil, Michael asks him not to push another button. Buddy decides to push the next button for Smoke Screen. The license plate is mirrored THGINK (instead of KNIGHT) before the smoke blows.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: In the first few episodes watch KITT's glowing square. In some scenes the flasher says KNIGHT 2000 and other times it does not.

Slammin' Sammy's Stunt Show Spectacular - S1-E5

Deliberate mistake: Watch the end of the test run for Michael and KITT. Michael was using the KITT steering wheel, but then he gets out of the car and it switches to a performance steering wheel instead.

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.

Knight Rider [Pilot; a.k.a. Knight of the Phoenix] (2) - S1-E2

Revealing mistake: After KITT has been taken by the crooks, KITT auto cruises. Watch the spin circle showoff in slow motion. KITT is spraying gasoline out of his side tank all over the road as he's spinning circles.

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

Revealing mistake: During the demolition derby, the shot of KITT releasing his smoke screen is flipped; you can see that the license plate is backwards.

Add time

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.

Forget Me Not - S1-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When the blue pickup drives into the equestrian centre with the brown horsefloat on the back, you can see the shadows of the camera crew on the ground.

A Knight in Shining Armor - S2-E13

Revealing mistake: When Michael fights the bad guy at the end of the episode, it's easy to tell that they're both stunt doubles.

Add time

Blind Spot - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: After the KITT and Porsche chase scene, the police officer on the motorcycle comes to a stop in the dead-center of an intersection. But in the next shot when he looks around, he is barely inching into the intersection.

Add time

Big Iron - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When Michael finds the stolen moving equipment, he parks KITT and then starts to climb down an embankment. The close-up shot of KITT's scanner reveals a tree in the hood's reflection. But when we saw KITT stop, there wasn't a single tree around.

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.
