    Is Eddie torture  porn a thing? Because I feel like season 2 is nothing but Eddie  torture porn.

    Thanks for this ongoing series!

    It’s pretty amazing, I remember the 90s, and I remember Baywatch always being on syndicated TV and the butt (or chest) of jokes. I knew it had David “Knight Rider” Hasslehoff and Pam Anderson and some actress named Yasmin Bleeth who was the “hot girl” all the dudes would reference alongside Pam Anderson, Tiffany Amber Thiessen, Cameron Diaz etc. at the time.  The big joke was that the show was “Pam Anderson running in slow-mo” but in reality, it was this boring show that your friends would make fun of you if you said you liked it…and I truly believe that none of us actually secretly did.

    I had no idea the show had this huge rotating cast of characters and several entire seasons before Pam Anderson and so many random goofy elements. I had no idea what a production and continuity mess it was… This episode being one of the more blatant examples.

    This was a hugely popular show at the time, probably got more views then most network shows. (the much cooler people watched Start Trek TNG and DS9) Now I can finally understand what the fuss was behind this cultural phenomenon, and you make it absolutely hilarious.

    Wow, I remember this show always being part of the cultural background noise of the 90s, but I never had any idea it was this mess of a production with all these rotating characters and goofy product placements. This episode really epitomizes what a lazy and confused mess some of those 80s and 90s syndicated shows could be.

    I pretty much knew Baywatch as that show people joked about being “Pam Anderson running in slow-mo” and I had no idea there were entire seasons before she even joined the cast. I guess so far as these reviews go, the show hadn’t really connected with a mainstream audience?

    Thanks for reviewing these and adding so much funny to the stupid. It’s a monumental task to have to watch hundreds of hours of Hasselhoff smirking for the camera.

    I don’t get the jokes of making fun of 50+ people having relationships or feeling lonely. People who are 50+ inspire me.

    There is an actual drug called spice.  Some people smoked it as a ‘legal’ alternative to marijuana (it so isn’t a replacement though).  In fact my area had a real problem with it and a homeless friend of mine had himself pretty messed up for a while with that stuff (thankfully he is past it).  I’ve tried it and I can’t stand it.

    This is for serious: don’t do spice, m’kay?
