* SameContentDifferentRating: For some unknown reason, El Rey's airing of the show has been given a TV-14 rating despite other networks presenting it as "TV-PG", even though there's hardly (if ever) anything graphic in the show.[[note]]And this was when some primetime shows were starting to push the envelope.[[/note]]Yes, there are some deaths (including one in the very first episode), but overall, there really isn't anything that would deserve a TV-14 rating.[[note]]Which could be in line with how El Rey [[PanderingToTheBase is trying to present itself]].[[/note]]

* MagicPlasticSurgery: Happens in the very first episode. Averted in [=KR08=] - the FBI merely fakes Michael Traceur's death, after which he takes on the name Michael Knight.

Unfortunately, the ratings did not improve enough after the retooling (a steady average of 5.5 million viewers), and despite [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff strong international interest]] and high numbers of video stream viewing and episode downloads, NBC failed to include the show in their official Fall 2009 line-up.

* RoboSpeak: In contrast to the '80s series giving KITT an incredibly human personality, the 2008 has him talk in a far more robotic manner, complete with MachineMonotone.

** One episode of the original series takes place at a film studio; in reality, the UniversalStudiosHollywood backlot. Michael and KITT drive past the Clock Tower and Courthouse Square from BackToTheFuture, and KITT remotely controls the mechanical shark Bruce from Jaws (complete with theme music).
