    I keep thinking this show can’t get any more vapid, and it keeps surprising me. How lazy do the writers have to be to try to create drama out of a situation that could be resolved with the sentence: “I’m buying a motorcycle?” It’s not like any reason was presented for him to keep it a secret, like it was a present for someone or something. And why does C.J. gasp when Matt is standing in front of her showing exactly as much skin as he normally does on the job? Was she supposed to be able to see his morning wood or something?

    Meanwhile, Summer continues to be boring and useless.

    I, too, had forgotten that Richard Jaeckel was still in this show, collecting his “I was once nominated for Best Supporting Actor” paycheck. RIP, Richard.

    As for Mitch winning the Ironman competition and everyone telling him how great he is, one of the perks of being executive producer is you get to have your own self-insertion fanfics. Just ask Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs.

    Mitch’s ass will haunt my dreams forever.

    Okay, I hate to admit it… But I found the clips of Destiny funny. Despise me, but somehow the show made that 1 trick pony funny.

    Eyebrows has all his money stolen every day, that’s why he can’t afford a motorcycle.

    Mitch is beloved by all, even A&W Soda!

    I live for Baywatching. I don’t think I can say that enough.

    That was the ending? I thought you were joking at first! O.O

    What is it about Summer that makes me okay with the Baywatch universe dumping all it’s vitriol and karma-tic retribution on her, knowing full well every other major cast member deserves it equally (except Numie or Garner)?

      Maybe because you take away her mopie ass personality, you actually see someone who is even more useless then Eddie and acts kind of like a bitch to others?

    I’m shocked, shocked and dismayed, at the lack of photoshopped Mitch-as-Tony-Stark-in-armour in this episode!

    Heh not really, but still really funny episode. The ego is thick with this one.

    Considering Lisa Stahl was replaced on Baywatch Nights by Donna D’errico, I think it’s obvious that her character contributed nothing to the show as she was able to be replaced by one of the most vapid actresses in Baywatch history without anyone barely being able to tell.

    Can somebody explain how Mitch saved the hippy chick by removing her wetsuit? OK, I know Baywatch was all about the Fanservice, but that seemed utterly bizarre!

    Did Baywatch ever know what kind of show it was supposed to be? Was it a drama? Was it a kids show? Was it a parody? What blows my mind is that someone wrote scripts for the show, someone edited them, someone approved them, someone directed them. With all the people involved, the end result is embarrassing.

      It was supposed to be a serious drama, I think if you go back and watch Allison’s reviews from season one, it’s pretty obvious that, despite the horrible acting and poorly written scripts, they were taking themselves way too seriously. You don’t see episodes about surfboard eating octopuses or ex-professional wrestlers being members of freak shows until the show went to syndication.

      The thing that allowed this show to be successful was the nature of syndicated non-network affiliated television shows that proliferated in the 90s. On the one hand, that gave us Star Trek: The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine which might have been considered too niche or risky for network prime time, it also gave us camp like Hercules and Xena, and finally it dumped terrible dreck on the viewing public like Mortal Kombat the TV series, and Baywatch.

      It definitely did start out as an attempt at serious workplace drama, but you can see it also took a lot from 80’s hour long action shows which often had romance of the week subplots…shows like…oh I dunno…Knight Rider!

       

      lol…yeah, by this time the show doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be.

        To be fair, I think Star Trek: TNG was on NBC or something first then let go after the first or second season. And then it became one of the biggest TV shows of the time. Not even for syndicated shows–for network shows, too. It beat out some real heavy hitters in its time slot. I wish I could see the reaction of the person who decided to dump the show to those ratings. Salt everywhere!

          No, Star Trek: TNG was never a network show. It was syndicated from start to finish. Gene Roddenberry had had his fill of network executives meddling with his shows.

    Also, thank you Allison for sharing with us David Hasselhoff’s taint and scrotum.
