Knight Rider

Forget Me Not - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: When KITT drives off the edge of the cliff, the car changes from a pontiac to another standard car a number of times. When KITT lands, his flight trajectory was from approximately 10 feet, not 100 feet. He should have landed like a belly flop onto the sand, not a shallow dive.

Hearts of Stone - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When KITT jumps into the empty factory to save Michael the ramp is set a foot higher than the floor, yet when they drive out the same hole, the ramp is level with the floor so it can be driven down.

Give Me Liberty... or Give Me Death - S1-E15

Revealing mistake: When the van overturns at the end of the episode, you can easily see the padded roll bars used to protect the actors inside. These bars don't appear anywhere else in the episode.

Big Iron - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When KITT is pushed over the mountain by the earthmover, you can see the front bumper is actually a stock Trans-Am bumper instead of KITT's normal one.

Trust Doesn't Rust - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Watch the scene where KARR engages in bank robberies. In one charge scene, KARR has the sticker job from Slammin' Sammy's episode, which it doesn't have at any other point.

Forget Me Not - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: Watch the scene where Michael fights two guys for a purse. Michael calls KITT for help. When KITT jumps off a cliff, an old vehicle is the one that jumps off the cliff instead.

Just My Bill - S1-E6

Other mistake: Just as Michael jumps over the roadblock, the whole front of K.I.T.T. flexes showing it's not a real Firebird but a mock up.

Knightmares - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: When Michael and KITT are going to jump at the dam in order to save Cara from drowning in the water container just before they jump you can see a stunt ramp below KITT.

Knight Strike - S3-E21

Revealing mistake: Just after Michael is about to be rammed by the two Land Rovers, he jumps onto K.I.T.T. and gets inside. The film must have been reversed as he is sitting on the right-hand side, but when it cuts he is then shown to be sitting on the left-hand side.

Nobody Does It Better - S1-E21

Revealing mistake: When you see KITT driving after Michael is released from prison, you can see that it is a stunt driver and a normal steering wheel. The driver also isn't talking yet we hear Michael's voice. (00:15:50)

Chariot of Gold - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When Michael rescues Bonnie and asks K.I.T.T to meet him, one minute it is night time, next scene bright daylight. If it was morning it wouldn't be that bright. This is where they have possibly used footage from a previous episode. (00:26:20)
