'One Man Can Make A Difference...' This was an American television series that ran from 1982 to 1986. Conceived and produced by Glen A. Larson, the show soon inspired a series of copycat high-tech crimefighter shows. "I wanted to do The Lone Ranger with a car", Larson said. "Kind of a sci-fi thing, with the soul of a western." The show starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a kind of modern-day "knight" who drove an advanced smart car with artificial intelligence (voiced by William Daniels). The show receives regular repeat airings.
