About This Episode
In this episode, we pay homage to Knight Rider (and other “vehicle based TV shows from the 80s…”). In the 80s, there was a string of TV shows featuring a man with a very cool vehicle, and each week he would arrive in a small town and stumble upon a criminal enterprise, usually where a rich powerful man was taking advantage of a good-hearted, community minded, small business owner. There was a LOT of shows like this, but only one with a sentient, talking car, so that’s the way we went!
