All 21 episodes from the first season of the 1980s TV series following the adventures of Michael Knight and his incredible super-car KITT. Episodes are: Pilot episodes: 'Knight of the Phoenix (Parts 1 and 2)', 'Deadly Maneuvers', 'Good Day at White Rock', 'Slammin' Sammy's Stunt Show Spectacular', 'Just My Bill', 'Not a Drop to Drink', 'No Big Thing', 'Trust Doesn't Rust', 'Inside Out', 'The Final Verdict', 'A Plush Ride', 'Forget Me Not', 'Hearts of Stone', 'Give Me Liberty...Or Give Me Death', 'The Topaz Connection', 'A Nice, Indecent Little Town', 'Chariot of Gold', 'White Bird', 'Knight Moves', 'Nobody Does it Better' and 'Short Notice'.
"One man can make a difference," intones a dying millionaire--well, one man and a superduper car, backed with millions of dollars! Welcome to the deliciously ridiculous world of Knight Rider, the early '80s TV series that launched the career of David Hasselhoff and his magnificent coif (both later seen in the insanely popular Baywatch). After being shot in the face, detective Michael Long is revived as Michael Knight (Hasselhoff) and partnered with an indestructible talking car called K.I.T.T. (voiced by William Daniels). The duo travel around the country solving crimes--basically, it's The Lone Ranger with the car as Silver and Tonto combined. Supported by finicky British executive Devon Myles (Edward Mulhare, actually an Irishman) and sexy engineer Bonnie Barstow (Patricia McPherson), Knight and K.I.T.T. take on everything from motorcycle gangs to corporate crooks to K.I.T.T.'s own evil twin, K.A.R.R.
Like any good cheese, Knight Rider has only grown more pungent with age. Decked out in alarming '80s fashions (check out that blue Members Only jacket in the pilot), earnestly spouting some of the worst dialogue in the history of television, the absurdly handsome Hasselhoff radiates the unique charisma that's made him a cult figure in Germany. In addition to the 21 episodes of the first season, Knight Rider: Season One includes a 1991 TV movie, Knight Rider 2000, that tried to launch a revamped series set in the near future (lacking the cheerful touch of creator Glen Larson, the attempt sank into oblivion) and brief interview footage (including Hasselhoff describing when he read the original script: "It was glowing in my hands. This was gold.") It's unlikely this boxed set will appeal to anyone who didn't become a fan of the show at an impressionable age, but for those fans, Knight Rider: Season One is gold. --Bret Fetzer

The four discs in this set are double-sided, so the publishers were able to save money on the cost of printing discs, keeping the price of the set low. Points to them for that. When you first load up a disc, the unforgettable KR theme music starts and your options are provided in a cool, perspective-shifted layout that has an effect like KITT's scanner behind it. Once you choose which of the episodes you want to watch (there are four episodes per side of each disc), you are presented with a brief synopsis, original air date, and a still image before you dive in. This is GREAT. I'm also a Star Trek fan, and I have to say that Paramount's menus and navigations on the TNG and Voyager DVDs are horrendous compared to this. Knight Rider has got the kind of DVD menus that all DVDs should have. Animated, colorful, yet still very fast to navigate through and full of all the information you need.
Visually, the episodes look stunning. Both the audio and video tracks have been remastered, and all of KITT's electronics, glossy black paint and Michael's goofy grins are more sharp and clear than they've ever been, even in 1982. The sound track is unbelievable.Read more ›
There's good selection of special features over the 8 discs including a bit about the music and a bit about the stunts, but they are all 5 minute featurettes so don't expect any great documentaries. The episodes are in chronological order (which is why I got confused re: the pilot) and there is also a directors commentary with David Hasselhoff and creator Glen A Larson, which is quite humourous. David seems totally mental while Glen takes the mickey out of everything Hasselhoff says! There's also a special feature where there is a nice graphic of KITTs dashboard and you can move around it using your DVD controller. Then you select a bit of the dash that interests you and it tells you what the buttons do - eg: you can see what button turbo boost is and what it's capabilities are.
All in all a great DVD box set with a decent amount of special features, though some of them could have been longer. You'll love it if you are a fan of Knightrider and the episodes are still great (if a little dated in some respects) and it's really fun to watch. Recommended.
All 21 episodes are in chronological order on 8 DVD's (although the Pilot episode is on disc 7 for some reason) and also includes the more recent made-for-tv movie - Knight Rider 2000. Other bonus features include photo stills, a behind the scenes featurette, info on how the Knight Rider theme was composed, a display of KITT's dash explaining what all the functions do and the humourous audio commentary over the Pilot episode from David Hasselhoff and Glen Larson which gives you a lot of interesting info you may not have noticed/known.
The only slight downside to this set is the lack of the cut scene's that are usually before each of the episodes, but since all that footage is in each episode anyway you're not really losing anything.
Definitely a must if you're a Knight Rider fan, and Amazon's price on this set is far far lower than anywhere else i have seen it, so go buy it right now!! I will definitely be buying the rest of the seasons when they are released!!
