Michael Knight: I love Christmas. The lights, trees, music, the whole spiritual season makes me feel great.
K.I.T.T.: It confuses me. What could a portly man in a red suit positively have to do with the birth of a religious leader?
Michael Knight: Kitt, Christmas is a time for giving and a time for love and Santa is the greatest giver of them all. Speaking of giving, I'm a bit perplexed about what to get you. Being a car, it is rather difficult to know what's appropriate.
K.I.T.T.: Anything but pajamas, cheap cologne, ties and argyle socks. ...

Silent Knight
30 October 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

There is plenty of soft rock music in this episode. Yes, Fleetwood Mac and Survivor. Yet no festive tunes considering it is set in the run up to Yuletide.

The action sets off with an armed bank robbery and one of the robbers also steal a gold watch from the bank manager which itself is later pickpocketed by a gypsy boy called Tino.

Kitt literally bump into Tino who is fleeing the robbers. Michael brings the boy to safety to his uncle, the king of the gypsies but the robbers are still after Tino.

It is unusual for the gypsy community of America to feature in television shows.

KITT gets to act like a sniffer dog in this episode as he looks for a spilled oil trail. It is not a very festive looking episode and Tino looks like a young Michael Knight, maybe a reason why Michael is so worried about him.
