We can all thank Knight Rider and NBC for giving David Hasselhoff his big break in the showbiz industry. As Michael Knight, Hasselhoff became one of the most recognizable characters in pop culture. Many people in their 30s today still remember watching Knight Rider and wishing they had a car just like KITT and even an ounce of coolness that Knight had. Attempts were made at recreating that magic that Knight Rider had (NBC tried to bring the show back with different actors in 2008), but those efforts failed. There’s just no duplicating what Hasselhoff brought to the show. So get a few Knight Rider t-shirts, throw your leather jacket and cowboy boots on and relive the memories of a time when a 1982 Pontiac Trans-Am and one man tried to save the world.
