KNIGHT RIDER (1982-1986)

A billionaire saves shot police officer Michael Arthur Long and gives him a new identity as lone crusader Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff).

Michael's partner is the Knight Industries Two Thousand (K.I.T.T), a super-fast, virtually indestructible car that can do just about anything (including talk and drive itself).

Together, Michael and K.I.T.T fight criminals operating above the law. At its height, 13 million viewers tuned in to ITV to watch Knight Rider.

Top 10 Fun Things About Knight Rider

1. Each week (or so it seemed), a tough-looking villain would break into K.I.T.T and scream like a girl at a Busted concert when the car started talking.

2. David Hasselhoff had an afro.

3. David Hasselhoff's stunt double looked nothing like him. The fact that viewers were clearly able to see this speaks volumes for the production values...

4. At the time, there wasn't a cooler car on telly than K.I.T.T - in reality, it was a customised 1982 Pontiac Trans-Am.

5. Every week, the show opened with the following words: "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 powerless, the helpless in a world of criminals who operate above the law."

6. The closing narration to every episode was: "Michael Knight, a lone crusader in a dangerous world. The world... of the Knight Rider."

7. Like all crime crusaders, Michael Knight had an evil nemesis. In this case, the scoundrel was actually his dastardly brother Garthe (played by David Hasselhoff with a daft goatee beard). Garthe drove a big, mean truck named 'Goliath' (ha, ha!) and later on he got behind the wheel of K.I.T.T's sworn enemy K.A.R.R (Knight Automated Roving Robot - a silver version of K.I.T.T).

8. In the 1985 episode 'Knight Song', Michael has to ensure a nightclub opens safely. Appearing as themselves were 80s RnB band New Edition, including Whitney Houston's husband Bobby Brown.

9. Other famous stars to spot in Knight Rider include Blair Underwood (LA Law, s*x & The City), Jason Bateman (The Hogan Family, Arrested Development) and Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis.

10. In numerous episodes of Knight Rider, David Hasselhoff's unbuttoned shirts revealed not only a hairy chest but also, a gold medallion! We kid you not.
