Re: Knightrider Episode Goofs

hi all not been on for a very long time other commitments but have more time now
i thought id throw a few gaffs in myself
these in no way change my enjoyment or love for knight rider ive been a fan for 30 years and will be for 30 more
we all must remember this was a tv show in the 80s...long before dvds with freeze frame or cgi..when stuntmen and women used real cars to do jumps and make a car drive by itself
they improved on the abitiy to fool us with say the autocruise2(passenger side blind driver)where kitt could draw up next to micheal he jumps in without a cut to change cars and drive off in one shot
below are some goofs and gaffs ive noticed in my time of watching...
from trust doesnt rust ..karr turbos over kitt notice the white partition infront of the doorway..also as stated earlier karr lands on a high ramp i think due to the fact that the blind drive car is being used and would have been to dangerous for the stuntman to land directly on the ground

even so theres plenty of misshaps of hands and arms showing...
this scene from sent of the roses...notice the orange arm...

this scene...

i could go on but for me the worst gaff has to go to the scene in killer kitt after bad kitt smashes mk into the news stand and berio orders him back he reverses and any illusion kitt drove by himself is shattered by the clear shot of a pair of hand turning the wheel no need for high quality dvds here got this one when i saw it 30 years ago ..what was the director/editor thinking.....

hey guys... here are a few from "Knightmares"....

April pulls up in KITT... nothing on bonnet of KITT...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The scene then changes to April getting out of KITT.... she walks around KITT and what is that stuck on KITTs bonnet?

KITT has cracked up as he's just seen Michael on his monitor....

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Now this one is good... you may need to watch the episode to see 2 people steering KITT through the T-Top glass as KITT chases after Michael down an alley

those round things on the bonnet are where the sparks fly out from when hes being shot at, also in that scene when KITT self activates and goes round the corner after Michael, have you seen how low the back end of the car is, its either knackered or it was the weighed down jump car

The things on bonnet are quick release clips or camera mountings as there is 2 in opposite positions... Def not squibs... Also where you mentioned the low rear end.. Did you notice the dark purple flaking window tint...lol

Funny how they went through the trouble of replacing the windscreen for one without the top tint stripe but left the seats being leather PMD's. I guess it was thought the leather PMD's aren't so visible in the 80's tv systems & vhs tape.

As for the leather jacket, perhaps the FLAG semi had one cupboard full of them to replace the worn out or broken ones, remember how April had spare comlinks as well in the semi cupboard.
