Nope, I, along with FuzzieDice, mentioned it in another thread. Just another consequence of a rushed set. I mean, really...would it have taken that much time to type up an individual synopsis for each epsiode?

Well, I just got Season 4 today, finally.

I have watched KOTJ and there are indeed missing sound effects, however, they are minute but it depends how picky you are.

Contrary to what has been said about the sound effect when Nordstrom squeezes devon's shoulder, the squelching sound is there BUT the effect is dulled down. However, it sounded blatant enough.

The missing sound effects I noticed were:

Nordstrom crushing that guy's hand near the beginning of the episode, before smashing him into the boulders. No squelching noise.

No boat engine sound effect when Michael and Marta escape.

No two thuds when RC climbs down off the car after dealing with the punks who were going to attempt to smash kitt's windscreen.

No beeping noise when Michael presses the EBS button for the EBS wings to fold back in, nor were there effects of the wings actually folding in either. This sequence was just where Michael pulls up to study the Juggernaut at the airport.


And that's it.

I personally didn't find these as annoying as the season 3 effects, they were much bigger in terms of focus of the scene.

However, it's no excuse, we are still not getting what we paid for.

I just hope there are no repeats of missing sound effects in the following episodes.

As for the sypnosis, they are on the back of the box so it really doesn't matter to me.

Hi.
When I went to make the order from the store that import the DVD series I buy, ther said the fourth season doesn't have spanish subtitles, even said it doesn't have english subtitles. It's that true?

I put the orden in hold while I get this information.

I already bought season 3, but couldn't watch any episode yet.

Thanks.

Just received the dvd in the mail from Amazon....

As soon as I opened it up, i went straight to the bonus features.... Boy was i disappointed.. The blueprints of KITT is basically the KITT kit and the Flashback of the 80s TV shows was interesting... But is that it for the bonus features???? Really disappointed.... No Knight Rider bloopers that all of us had hoped for or maybe something better and more relevant to Knight Rider instead of the bonus features that are present in the dvd now...

Yep, that's it. Hey, at least Universal couldn't cop-out this time and put an episode of the next season on there to call a "bonus feature." "The Great '80s TV Flashback" was a good documentary, only it's available on every other recent Universal release. And not only that, but nearly all of the interviews used in the Knight Rider segment were taken directly from the Season 1 set. So really, if we were interested in that particular feature only for the Knight Rider segment (like, say, I don't know...most of the people that bought the set?), we'd be getting a repeat of what we already have.

I agree. And, who would buy just season 4 and not the other seasons? Well, I guess some would (nothing wrong with it actually) but I would think most would want to get all 4 sets and have the complete run.

Despite some minor flaws like this, I found it great to have season four as a birthday present to me. And, there's even some satisfaction on watching the episode where it was Michael's birthday on my birthday. :D

Has anyone caught the recent AT&T advertisement that co-stars KITT as a pitchman, yet?
