    Wow. The Beach Boys must have really been desperate to team with this show.

      The post-Brian years were not good for the band. If ever evidence was needed of that, this is it.

      They had a charting hit called Cocomo (Kokomo?) in the 80s…catchy I suppose, they still harmonized pretty well. After that I figured they fell into obscurity, but apparently they still hung around a little longer.

        I remember the song Kokomo. It was in the extremely forgettable/terrible Tom Cruise film Cocktail. MTV wouldn’t stop playing it when I was 10.

    Well, I have to hand it to Jeff Garland and that other emmy winning producer for one thing, they managed to make one episode that wasn’t Mitch-centric for a change, and it kinda felt like the campy-ness matched the overall tone of what a show like this should be.

    Too be fair to Jeff I used to have the same reaction to Pamela Anderson. Of course I was thirteen at the time and watched the show only for… ummm… the acting and amazingly written storylines… Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    Okay… so this whole plot was just for that Pamela Anderson fan-service montage, wasn’t it?

    Am I the only one who never got why Pamela Anderson was popular? I mean not only wasn’t she very charismatic and couldn’t act her way out of a wet paper bag, but she was also objectively the least attractive woman on Baywatch. Even Alexandra Paul (Stephanie), who’s not exactly a bombshell, has much nicer facial features and is downright beautiful with long hair let down. Was it really just the silicone boobs? Because there were girls on the show with sexy bodies who were actually pretty, more charismatic and better actresses.

    And this isn’t a new revelation of a mature adult or anything, I didn’t even like her as a horny teen.

    An Emmy winning writer actually wrote this? It seems more like an episode of Scooby-Doo interrupted by gratuitous Pamela Anderson shots. In retrospect, the writer new exactly what he was doing.
