  • Finally the show goes back to its roots and delivers. It's only a pity it's gonna be cancelled now...

    9.0
    It might have taken some fifteen episodes and two reboots to get into its stride, but Knight Rider has finally found its niche. Continuing the theme of the last few weeks, this episode was the best yet; it was funny, clever and witty, with some exceptional lines between Mike and KITT.



    The show has reverted back to the one man and his car format of the original TV show and it's so much better for it. Gone are the terrorists of the week in place of simple people needing help.



    This week sees Mike trying to rescue a child prodigy from a Columbian drug dealer.



    A good episode with some geniuinely exciting and funny moments. If this show keeps going like this, its cancellation will be a travesty.moreless

    This was yet another outstanding episode. I believe it's safe to say that this show is getting better and better now. It's all about the missions. (I love it). I love the relationship Kitt and Mike have now. WOW…Kitt having a little personality of his own.. this is awesome. The humor that Kitt and Mike had in this episode was nice.. very personal.. very partner like. This was yet another outstanding episode. Keep up the wonderful job NBC. I hope and pray that we get an opportunity to have a 2nd Season of KR. Since I can remember I always enjoy this show as a child. I have been watching KR since I was 5-6 years old.moreless
  • Outstanding episode! I don't know if it's save to say that this show keeps getting better and better, but it sure as hell keeps up to the standard which it has set with "Exit Light, Enter Knight".moreless

    Outstanding episode! I don't know if it's save to say that this show keeps getting better and better, but it sure as hell keeps up to the standard which it has set with "Exit Light, Enter Knight".

    The teamwork and the relationship of Mike and KITT have been portraied really well again, especially KITTs sense of humor provides a lot of comic relief:



    Sarah: KITT wake you up again?

    Mike: Yeah, and while we're on the subject, I think we need to have a little chat about boundaries.

    KITT: We are approaching the latitude and longitude of the plane's last known GPS location.

    Mike: Don't try and change the subject.

    (KITT skids to a stop, Mike hits his head on the dashboard)

    Mike: Ah! Ow.

    KITT: That would be changing the subject, Michael.



    Awesome! ;-) But the best quote of this episode came from Billy:



    Billy: Mike, did I just hear KITT smacking your around?

    Michael: KITT and I are communicating. That's what partners do.

    Billy: No, it just sounded like KITT was making you his b**ch.



    Muahahahaha! :-D Again: With the first half of this season actually beeing mostly characterized by poor acting and ridiculous plots I had lost hope at some point. BUT the last three episodes not only saved the show from being a pubertal and mostly sexist embarassment, they really pointed out the writers success in making up for their previuos mistakes.



    This show has definitely become the Knight Rider Reboot I had actually never dared to hope for! Mike and KITT have become a great team, the all-over acting has improved noticeably and the plots have gotten WAY more believable and down-to-earth.



    PLEASE, NBC: Keep up the great work and give us a 2nd season of Knight Rider!!!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: The coordinates that Billy found from the equation on the wall (34.499 and -118.8) are actually not correct. The answers are 64.51 and -63.53, which would lead to an underwater location in the Arctic Circle. Also the coordinates Billy gives Mike lead to an area completely devoid of any roads, inluding dirt roads and trails, even though in the episode a paved road can be clearly seen at that location.

    • Goof: When KITT fires at the van and most of the bullets appear to hit the passenger side of the van. Only in the next scene, the passenger seat appears to have no damage, not even a bullet hole.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Zoe: Mike is the best there is. He'll get him back.
      Mrs. Clark: You have to say that.
      Zoe: Yeah. But that doesn't mean I don't believe it.

    • Sarah: Planes just don't disappear.
      Billy: This one did. Just like my prom date at midnight.

    • Sarah: Why did you let yourself get towed?
      KITT: Under the circumstances, driving away on my own seemed like a bad idea.

    • KITT: Don't worry Sarah, I got this.
      (KITT ends communication)
      Sarah: Mike and KITT have been spending way too much time together.

    • (Billy is working on the equation to find Danny)
      Mike: Get your nerd on, Billy.

    • Mike: Do bad guys ever sleep?
      KITT: No. But neither do I.

    • Sarah: KITT wake you up again?
      Mike: Yeah, and while we're on the subject, I think we need to have a little chat about boundaries.
      KITT: We are approaching the latitude and longitude of the plane's last known GPS location.
      Mike: Don't try and change the subject.
      (KITT skids to a stop, Mike hits his head on the dashboard)
      Mike: Ah! Ow.
      KITT: That would be changing the subject, Michael.

    • Mike: Why would someone fake a plane crash?
      KITT: Isn't that what we get paid to find out?
      Mike: You get paid?

    • KITT: Agent Renning is calling out an APB on us.
      Mike: Then we better go incognito. Shall we go old school?
      KITT: To use the lingo of the time, I can dig it.

    • Billy: Mike, did I just hear KITT smacking your around?
      Michael: KITT and I are communicating. That's what partners do.
      Billy: No, it just sounded like KITT was making you his bitch.

    • Mrs. Clark: I can't believe you're arguing with a Mustang.
      Danny: It's an extremely advanced thinking algorithm.
      Mrs. Clark: I can't believe you're arguing with that either.

    • (KITT is shooting his gatling guns at Bahia)
      Danny: Yeah, get him!
      Mrs. Clark: Danny, do not encourage the car to get violent.
