Best thing ever!,
This review is from: Knight Rider - The Complete Box Set (2011 Repackage) [DVD] (DVD)
This is one of the best things I have ever owned! It has every single episode of Knight Rider spread over 13 DVDs (26 discs in total). The sound and picture quality is fantastic for its age! Each disc has a "play all" option and an "episode select" option where you can easily choose the episode you want to watch. The first season gives you an episode synopsis and air date with each episode which I thought was great! However, this is dropped after season 1.
Most of the special features seem to be on season 1 too. These features include interviews with the cast and crew (including David Hasselhoff), KITT's features and blueprints, the Knight 2000 movie (1991) and many more! Also included on the last disc is a documantery about 80s cult TV programmes which I thought was good.
Many reviews on here talk about how the DVDs make a picture of KITT when lined up. Please be aware that they are talking about the old box set! The new re-package (which is what's being sold here) doesn't have this. The boxset is much smaller than the old one though so in my opinion better anyway. I've added some sizes to the product gallery if anyone is interested. The box set is suprisingly small which makes for easy storing!
I think that anyone of any age can enjoy this. I'm too young to have seen Knight Rider when it was originally aired so watching this box set was the first time I had seen Knight Rider. I was amazed at how fantastic the series is!! If you love cult TV or programmes like The A-Team or Street Hawk then this box set is definitely for you! It's definitely for boys and girls alike! It's definitely something i'll be watching again and again!
Knight Rider is a truely amazing TV series that ran from 1982-1986 and starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight with his talking car KITT. The characters are all very lovable and you feel like you really know them by the end. There are plently of action scenes, jokes, sensitive moments, feel good times and turbo boosts. It's very different from TV now as it's more light hearted, silly and fun! In my opinion it's much better than anything these days!
IMPORTANT NOTE: The pilot episode is on season 1, disc 7 for some strange reason. All of the rest of the episodes are in the right order so i'd recommend watching the pilot first and then starting from the beginning of the discs.

Yes, it is a shame. I can't imagine why the episode descriptions were stopped because I thought they were very handy, especially if you are looking for a particular episode. The box set doesn't come with an episode guide either so if you want short descriptions of each episode, I'd recommend you visit IMDb online and search "Knight Rider". I'm with you on the price too! And the consistent excellent service from Amazon!
Thanks for your comment Martin!
