Mouth of the Snake
25 March 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Mouth of the Snake is in effect a backdoor pilot for another proposed series which never made it because it looked too similar to another series from the mid 80s Cover Up.

Charles Taylor looks like a more athletic version of Tommy Lee Jones. He stars as David Dalton, a freelance agent investigating a criminal Eduardo O'Brian who has stolen an advanced rocket launcher. He is assisted by Joanna St John, the widow of a murdered lawyer killed near the Mexican border where he was investigating people smuggling.

Dalton finds out that the criminal might also had killed St John's husband.

Michael Knight looking into the murder of the lawyer joins forces with Dalton to take down O'Brian.

This was a feature length episode with Michael and KITT taking more of a back seat. Dalton's gymnastics is interesting, almost a forerunner to Parkour. However it is not really Knight Rider.

Dalton did feature in a sort lived series called Code of Vengeance.
