Knight Rider

A Plush Ride - S1-E12

New this month Revealing mistake: As KITT is rolling down the hill with the unconscious Michael inside, the shots of KITT from the outside show that the bonnet and roof have large and obvious gaps between them and the rest of the bodywork (presumably a stunt vehicle). When KITT fires it's turbo boost, the bodywork is its normal flush self again.

Trust Doesn't Rust - S1-E9

New this month Continuity mistake: Throughout the episode, KARR has his own unique yellow voice modulator. However, when he is talking to the two robbers in their lockup and we see KARR mainly from the outside, the light flashing inside KARR as he speaks is red, suggesting that it is KITT (or at least the KITT prop, possibly filmed before the KARR's modulator was made or reused from elsewhere).

Trust Doesn't Rust - S1-E9

New this month Continuity mistake: Throughout the episode, KARR doesn't appear to have a rear number plate as KITT does. However, in the shots of KARR smashing through windows/walls, he has KITT's ‘KNIGHT' plate.

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.

Add time

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Add time

A Nice, Indecent Little Town - S1-E17

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Michael chases the counter fitter and KITT supposedly jumps over some cars with his turbo boost, you can see a jumping ramp which wasn't there before, painted in the colour of the street behind it.

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.

Add time

Trust Doesn't Rust - S1-E9

Deliberate mistake: Watch the head to head scene of KARR and KITT. Just as KARR veers off, watch in slow motion frame by frame. The KARR switches to a classic automobile before the dirt scraping and cliff fall.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of many shows it will show the car's instruments, panning from one to the other. The speedometer will show various speeds in that shot, but a close up of the gauge will then show 55 MPH.

Mister Ed

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

Continuity mistake: As Michael realises how he will be stopped on the way to the airport, he pulls over. KITT's front lower bumper does not have its spotlights, it is just a plain bumper.

Add time

Deadly Maneuvers - S1-E3

Character mistake: The sign in front of the tank Lt. Ladd is trapped in reads "ORDINANCE TESTING FIELD, DANGER.", but an ordinance is a type of decree or law. They probably meant 'ordnance', which is another word for artillery.

Add time

Forget Me Not - S1-E13

Revealing mistake: When KITT is in the valet carpark, he pushes the cars in front of him forwards. It is very obvious they have attached rubber protectors to the bumpers to prevent damage. Also, when KITT is driving by himself 10 seconds later, you can see the stunt man's hands driving the car.

Add time

Big Iron - S2-E24

Revealing mistake: The shot of KITT releasing his oil slick at the end of the episode is backwards: "KNIGHT" appears as though it's in a mirror.

Add time

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

Continuity mistake: After Michael gets shot and gets in his car to race to the airport, he calls Devon on the intercom. Before he gets into the car, he flinches and grasps his left side shoulder area where he was originally shot. When he talks to Devon, he's grasping his right shoulder. After he finishes talking and continuing the drive, he grasps the left one again.

A Good Knight's Work - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: When Gina locks the door after Michael leaves, the close up of the lock is different than the one on the door. On the door, the top of the faceplate is right next to the deadbolt knob, but in the close-up there's a lot more space that you can't even see the top of the faceplate.

Goliath Returns (2) - S2-E19

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

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.

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

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.

The Topaz Connection - S1-E16

Other mistake: In an overhead shot of KITT speeding through the desert after Lauren's plane, you can see parts of KITT's hood wobbling against the wind. I seriously doubt a car made to be indestructible would have that happen.

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

Continuity mistake: The crooks steal KITT. When KITT announces himself, the crooks slam on the brakes. When the car comes to a halt, the back seat cushion is thrown forward. When the crooks take off, the back seat looks as if it hasn't ever moved forward.

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.

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.

Add time

Goliath Returns (2) - S2-E19

Continuity mistake: When Michael and Dr. Bergstrom get out of Goliath, the back door is still open. We see both get into K.I.T.T. at the same time since Bergstrom needs Michael's help walking on the hood. But once they're both in the car, the back door is closed and locked without Michael having a chance to. And if the door can close automatically or remotely, then it should have closed with Michael inside.

Continuity mistake: When Michael falls off the plane and onto KITT's hood, he is not wearing his leather jacket as he tries to stuff it in the rudder to stop the plane from taking off. Very next scene, he awakens in the FLAG Semi, wearing the jacket that fell into the driver's seat as he fell off the plane. I doubt the doctor would take the time to put Michael's jacket back on.
