Turbine returns to the action-packed world of David Hasselhoff's Michael Knight with a new
swag-free Knight Rider: Special Edition Blu-ray collection!
Around this time last year German label Turbine Medien unleashed a massive (in size and scope) Knight Rider: 40th Anniversary Edition featuring every episode fully restored spread over 20 discs with two discs reserved for the follow-up films, the short-lived Team Knight Rider series, with an extra disc with over three hours of bonus features on top of posters, books, and a bunch of swag items. It was a lot and commanded a pretty hefty price tag. Now fans of the series anxious to get their hands on the excellent Blu-ray discs can now pre-order the stripped-down special edition. Reduced to the same 20 discs fo the main series and an additional Blu-ray for all of the same excellent extra features content, the set ditches the swag items, Team Knight Rider as well as the rather uneven follow-up TV films. Best of all for collectors, the price point is half the cost of the still available and very awesome 40th Anniversary Collection. Here's a look at what this set has to offer:
He's coming. A car, a computer, a man. Knight Rider!
Michael Knight and his talking wonder car K.I.T.T. hunt down criminals of all kinds on behalf of the Law and Constitution Foundation. The team includes Foundation director Devon Miles, computer experts Dr. Bonnie Barstow and April Curtis, and brave driver RC III. Together, they fight against Goliath, K.A.R.R. and numerous other villains to ensure that justice prevails.
