Knight Rider 1x15 - "Fly by Knight" - Discussion and Spoilers

From TV.com:

Mike investigates a case of a plane crash and discovers that the crash was faked. The plane had been carrying a federal witness, a 10 year old boy who witnessed the killing of his father. When Mike tries to help the DEA agent investigating the case, he ends up getting arrested. Mike realizes that it is up to him to find the missing witness before he is killed. Meanwhile, Sarah tries to secure the future and independence of the SSC.

I say again that the truck mode is pointless.

If KITT has the power and troque to operate similar to an all-terrain vechile in off-roads situations then his physical apperance is irrelevant. Does looking like a truck really help his off-road abilities.

Good teaser, BTW.

I know.

This episode has been great so far and the new format perfect.

I really want this series to survive now.

Heh.

I like how all of the name badges on the cars are covered up.

Interesting hot the "OnStar"-like system in the KR universe is hooked up to cars' steering system.

The Classic Mustang mode was kind of cool.

So, really, the whole "Keep the car with the super-advanced AI a secret thing" is out the window?
