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.
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).
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.pierpp
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.
Continuity mistake: When KITT first stops talking the Auto Normal and Pursuit mode indicators change from old fashioned very angular with a different font and switches to the newer rounded rectangle with then new font. It does this several times.Benjamin Lesley
Revealing mistake: When the hoods are trying to take KITT one prepares to toss a brick at the window. If you slow it down, you can see a reflection of the crew member really close to the window. When the "brick" hits the window, you hear breaking glass, but no glass breaks. Also, the brick hits the other hood on the forehead, yet causes no injury, and no bleeding.Movie Nut
Deliberate mistake: Watch the scene when Michael fell asleep. At the end of the cop chase the cops get out. Watch the license plate California KNIGHT in yellow letters. The next scene reads Nevada MCC224 and has an original Trans Am rather than KITT's rear.Joseph Z
Continuity mistake: When the police helicopter sees dead Michael by the car, he turns 180º around between shots.Sacha
Other mistake: As Michael is driving to Millston, he asks about a radio. When KITT first asks "What would you like to hear?", the red square that indicates he is speaking doesn't blink until the camera does a close up on it.Movie Nut
Continuity mistake: The lights on either side of KITT's voice panel keep changing. The top four (air, oil, S1, S2) first are yellow, then orange, then red, then yellow. Also, the first time KITT talks when Michael asks about a radio, the panel doesn't blink.Movie Nut
Continuity mistake: The wounded electrician falls on the pavement, yet on the close-up is laying on the curb.Sacha
Continuity mistake: When the episode starts, the singer's hand is holding a mic at mouth level, but at waist level in the following shot. Also, the guitar player's hand behind the singer changes position.Sacha
