Michael Knight, a lone crusader in a dangerous world. The world of The Knight Rider on Blu-ray in a new 23-Disc
40th Anniversary Complete Series Collection from German label Turbine Medien
David Hasselhoff and his supercar KITT ride off into the sunset dealing justice where ever they travel in new 23-Disc Blu-ray collection from Turbine. Limited to 3939 units, this expansive set gives fans all 90 episodes of the original 4 seasons spread out over 20 discs with a Blu-ray with over three hours of exclusive bonus features including interviews with various cast and crew. On top of that, Turbine is gassing up this set with the two follow-up TV films in SD Knight Rider 2000 and Knight Rider 2010 with another disc dedicated to the complete 23-episode run of Team Knight Rider in SD. In addition there will be a massive 332-page book (in German) giving a full episode guide as well as new interviews and trivia. Sadly due to licensing issues the 2008 Knight Rider series didn't make the cut.
