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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. (00:25:25)

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.

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.

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.

Movie Nut

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.

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.

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)

White Bird - S1-E19

Revealing mistake: When Michael crashes through the side of the plane, you can see a pulley attached to the front wheel of the plane, which then is released. (00:40:15 - 00:40:50)

Hearts of Stone - S1-E14

Revealing mistake: When K.I.T.T is called by Michael to get between them at the drive by shooting, you can see on the right side of K.I.T.T all the special effect plugs that replicate gun fire hitting the car. (00:09:20)

Inside Out - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When the bad guy says "Deploy" and K.I.T.T breaks off from the convoy, you can see a normal steering wheel in the car. (00:35:05)
