In the third season of Knight Rider, Devon Miles (Edward Mulhare), head of the Knight Industries Foundation for Law and Order, continues dispatching his best agent, Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff) -- who before being snatched from the jaws of death by the late billionaire Wilton Knight had been undercover cop Michael Long -- on a variety of do-gooding errands, protecting the helpless and vanquishing a daunting array of villains. And as in seasons past, Michael is assisted in his missions by K.I.T.T., a computerized Trans Am car equipped with the latest in weaponry and surveillance paraphernalia -- not to mention an artificial intelligence, as manifested in its rather condescending voice (provided by William Daniels). Also on hand, albeit briefly, is K.I.T.T.'s sexy mechanic, April Curtis (Rebecca Holden); and, returning as a regular after missing most of season two, April's "fellow" mechanic Bonnie Barstow (Patricia McPherson). Season 3 opens with the two-part "Knight of the Drones," pitting Michael and K.I.T.T. against a deadly army of bank-robbing robots. Later on, K.I.T.T. must face down its arch enemy, the evil, laser-equipped vehicle K.A.R.R. In other episodes, Bonnie is persecuted by someone who wants to frighten her out of her new apartment after she witnesses a murder; Michael apparently goes to the enemy camp after Devon fires him for drug possession; K.I.T.T. nearly becomes kaput, courtesy of a toxic-waste dump; Michael is forced to drive K.I.T.T. through a mine field in order to stop a murder; and K.I.T.T. becomes a circus attraction as a means of exposing a homicidal crook.

Knight Rider like all TV shows has flaws and is saddled with a bit of network television corniness at times, but it's brilliance is undeniable. The most major flaw of the show is that it created almost 25 years ago and well, the world was a different place. This a straighforward show about the good guy vanquishing the bad guys. If you nitpick on the show's imperfections you'll only ruin your own entertainment. Just suspend disbelief and watch a guy who could give 007 a genuine run for his money battle against villians that are just as zany as the ones in the Bond movies....
