Goliath Returns
20 December 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Evil Garthe Knight has been put inside a maximum security prison. He has had no access to a razor so he had to grow a beard and moustache. Fortunately the walls are paper thin so he escapes as the resurrected Goliath truck crashes through.

Evil Adrienne who appeared in an earlier episode in series 2 with the computer whizz kid has rebuild Goliath.

Garthe Knight and Adrianne kidnap Devon and April. Adrienne wants to install Kitt's CPU into Goliath. They also abduct Dr Bergstrom a scientist with knowledge of laser technology and replace him with a surgically altered clone. They plan to sell Dr Bergstrom to any interested government.

Hasselhoff gets to camp it up a bit more as Garthe. Ann Turkel is suitable eye candy as Adrienne. KITT takes a leave out of a James Bond movie and deploys a parachute when it is needed the most.

This feature length episode had an over the top ending for Goliath. It is a good job KITT had a grappling hook.
