A kid behind the driver's seat of a car wouldn't raise any eyebrows wat all.

^ The windows are suitably tinted. The Mustang I had as a loaner last week had windows that were so tinted you couldn't see through them from outside (yet they were perfectly clear on the inside).

I like how all of the name badges on the cars are covered up.
I noticed that only on the bad guy cars. Mike's you could make out (it focused on the Ford logo after all) and you could make out Zoe's Ford Focus. The bad guy's Explorer was crossed out and the DEA Agent's navigator were blocked.

Exterior shots of the car suggest otherwise. And what happens when KITT gets pulled over for having too dark of windows?

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

easy . . . he un-tints them
if he can morph into other Fords and has a replicator he can change window opacity

I actually thought this one was the best so far . . . I hope it continues to get better

^ Actually my Ford Escape (I was tired of dealing with my Ram's continual problems and went with a Ford - but I hate the F-150) has that feature.

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

variable tint?
I know they make glass that can become opaque when subjected to current but I haven't heard of anything like variable tint or whatever it's called

just as an example the glass I'm thinking off was used in The Sum of All Fears in that military war room scene to make the windows of the room turn white

^ Yeah. During the day you can't see in it from outside (you can see out perfectly) but as the sun goes down the tint decreases.

oh duh I forgot about those
I assumed it was an on-command thing rather than light activated

Its was good, not great though. But the show is getting better and better I must say .
But why was that kids so ugly and annoying? Too bad KITT couldn't morph him into something better.

Wow, KITT has the A-Team ability to shoot 2000 rounds without hitting anyone. Did Mike just call that guy a douche? Nice.

Yeah but even the A-Team didn't do it from 6 feet away.

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

When they said they were retooling the show to match the original more, they weren't kidding! This episode was right out of the 80's, and as much as I hate to knock the earlier eps, it's really what we needed to see up front.

Highlights for me:
  • Last week we had Evil Sheriff(tm). This week was Single Mom with Child(tm). Awesome.
  • No super fancy transformations for no reason whatsoever (though the F150 is debatable I admit). Each transformation served a purpose (truck to go off road, Attack Mode to go faster, classic Mustang to evade cops).
  • The classic Mustang was awesome.
  • The kid was surprsingly not terribly annoying. I really enjoyed seeing him try to make a deal with the drug dealer to get his mom freed.
  • I liked Mike's mention of his mom's death (another direct link to the February '08 movie).
  • Maria Menounos = Meow.
  • KITT's getting super snarky - about damn time.
  • Billy and Zoe served a purpose and actually helped further the plot. This is the way both of them should have been used from the get go.
  • In a super-obscure, non-intentional way, KITT's use of gatlings at the end reminded me of similar weapons on the car from Knight Rider 2010.
I know it's highly unlikely to return, but the last 3 entries have really made me want this show to survive more and more.
