Knight Rider

Just My Bill - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: The blue car is chasing KITT out onto a public road with striping. In one shot from the blue car, they're on the private road, then suddenly back on the public road.

Nobody Does It Better - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: When KITT forces the 4x4 off the road, you can see both people inside when it crashes wearing their safety harness. In the scene before when you see inside none of them are wearing any kind of belt. (00:37:40 - 00:38:15)

White Bird - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Michael and Stevie are in the car and it jumps through the panel on the trailer, when the car lands and it cuts back to Michael there is no trailer in the background. (00:17:05)

White Bird - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Michael is racing to the airfield to stop the bad guys, when you see inside the car it is clear and sunny outside. Next shot of outside with the car skidding the driver is wearing a different costume, possibly taken from another episode. Then the outside is foggy, back to clear, then foggy as he approaches the jump. (00:39:15)

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)

Chariot of Gold - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When they arrive at the museum and start to unload K.I.T.T it is raining fairly hard. When it cuts to Bonnie and the Professor and the woman it isn't raining. This keeps happening throughout the scene. (00:38:15)

The Topaz Connection - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: Just after Michael wakes up from being knocked out trying to stop the plane, he goes from the front of the Knight semi trailer (where all the computer equipment/office is) they are travelling in to get into KITT. He gets into the driver's side of the car (far side from the camera, indicating that KITT is facing towards the rear door of the trailer. However, in the exterior shot of KITT leaving the trailer, he emerges backwards down the ramp then does a 180 spin to go back the way he was facing when inside.

Trust Doesn't Rust - S1-E9

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

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.

The Topaz Connection - S1-E16

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.

Carol Wands

Hearts of Stone - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: When KITT lands in the back of the pick-up truck near the end of the episode, the internal shot shows the girl starting to get out of the passenger's side. But in the next external shot, she is getting out of the driver's side.

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).

No Big Thing - S1-E8

Question: In this episode, in an aerial view of KITT travelling before meeting the semi, KITT is passing a parked car that seems to be one of the other cars used as the stand-in for the 'hero car'. Would that be any sort of error? (00:23:35)

Movie Nut

Answer: I would say that unless there's visual evidence it was another K.I.T.T. car, as in you could see the bar scanner or cut steering wheel, people on here would correct the mistake by saying more than one 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am was sold and there's no reason it's meant to be a random car.
