The Hoff - Still Going Strong!

I first heard of David Hasselhoff when I watched Knight Rider, but this week he's been visiting Australia promoting an ice cream bar.   He's been dressed straight from the wardrobe of his other famous show - Baywatch - and still seems to pull the fans.

Personally I'd have been more interested in KITT - KITT's voice was that of William Daniels - I wonder what happened to him?   I so wanted to own a car just like KITT when I grew up as did many other friends of mine at the time!

Who can remember the opening narrative?   Give up?    Okay here it is -

Knight Rider, a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist. Michael Knight, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law.

You can now buy the complete series of Knight Rider on DVD which could turn into a fun night of 80s reminiscing.......actually with a run time of over 70 hours it would be a little more than your average movie marathon!

This DVD collection contains all four seasons and 84 action-packed episodes of Knight Rider - the action packed crime fighting duo of Michael Knight and Knight Industries Two Thousand that wowed you during the 80s, can still take you right back.    Unfortunately (as with alot of the 80s classics) you do spot a lot of goofs when you watch it and some of the scenes aren't as breathtaking as they seemed back then, but then we've come along way with film since then.

I haven't been able to get this particular set yet, but it contains a small button that when pressed lights up little red led lights so that you get the effect of KITT's grill - totally awesome!

I'm the first to admit that Knight Rider probably wouldn't have been the same without David Hasselhoff, but for me it was all about the car, oh and let's not forget Devon!
