Knight Rider

A Plush Ride - S1-E12

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.

Circus Knights - S3-E22

Revealing mistake: When Michael and K.I.T.T turbo boost the flame thrower and disable the fire engine, Michael says to K.I.T.T "get the clown." During the shot prior to K.I.T.T pinning the clown in you see the hands steering K.I.T.T appear above the dash.


Knight Moves - S1-E20

Revealing mistake: At the beginning when Michael has KITT move the truck, you can see the dolly apparatus that makes the truck's rear end swing out.


White Bird - S1-E19

Revealing mistake: When Michael grabs the newspaper to read about Stevie's abduction, all paragraphs are the same one, starting with the words "The facts".

Knight Moves - S1-E20

Revealing mistake: in the scene where two truckers try to smash up KITT with baseball bats, and KITT supposedly moves a bit backwards by himself, you can see someone 'helping' him near the passenger's seat.

Show generally

Revealing mistake: The inside shots of Kitt's voice modulator are repeated over and over, with the camera slightly moving sideways, to give the impression of the car running. Problem is, many times the car is at a standstill, so the moving camera shot is inconsistent.
