So this is the lame version of A Tale of Two Sisters.
Actually, it’s a lame rip-off of the excellent and extremely creepy 1972 horror movie, The Other.
Since “Mirror Mirror” was made in 1994, I’m guessing it was influenced by “Misery”, including the wine. There was a parody episode of The Critic that played out in a similar way, also around the same time.
For once, I actually tracked down the full episode to see it. The wine drug knocks Mitch out pretty much immediately, with no side effects! I’m not anesthetist, but does a drug like that exist? In plot convenience land it does.
Maybe she was hoping Mitch would lose his long term memory?
Maybe she thought she was giving him the red pill which would show him how deep the rabbit hold goes?
rabbit hole! Curse you lack of edit function!
Are you suggesting a Matrix/Baywatch crossover? Brilliant! I’ll start on the fanfict immediately.
Mitch, most handsome man on the beach? More like most handsome man on the planet!
Wait, if Summers shark death was dream does that mean the crazy old man on the boat was also a dream? Boooo! How many fake-out deaths can one Baywatch episode have?
Summer trying to be analytical? I’m surprised her brain didn’t start on fire. Fake-out! It was all a dream…
Is there are guide on how to write cliche tv tropes, because Baywatch seems to use it as its bible. Fake-out! Baywatch was Bobby Ewings dream all this time!
Really, Baywatch? Two botched psychological thriller plots in the same episode? You spoil us. Haha, but seriously, at this point, why were they even trying to make stories that people could care about? Surely it’s obvious there was really only one thing people cared about in this show; fan service. Lots and lots of it.
Ah well, I still always look forward to these videos, it’s ridiculous fun seeing how stupid this show could get.
Ah! If only Carrie-Anne Moss became a recurring villain on Baywatch. That’d be amazing!
If I remember right, that’s not the last we’ll see of the stock footage that killed Jill.
In an episode where Mitch is kidnapped by a mentally ill woman, Garner is nowhere to be seen. What’s the use of having him around again?
No Garner to save his love intrest? Boo!
Everyman has a Gonzanga radar. Because we are pigs.
Summer you bitch, Eyebrows saved your life from an evil ghost, and you think he wants to dump you? Da fuq?! Is Summer living in opposite world? ‘Oh, Slade cheats on me. True love! Oh, Eyebrows saves my life every week? WE’RE OVER WITH!’
Mitch is rather sexy to women who are murderous or crazy.
BTW, this is a common mistake, but schizophrenia and multiple-personality disorder are completely different things. Schizophrenics hallucinate and gradually lose touch with reality. While they sometimes believe themselves to be other people, they don’t switch back and forth between completely separate and well-defined personalities who may be unaware of each other’s activities and sometimes each other’s existences. MPD is also extremely rare compared with schizophrenia. There are millions of schizophrenics in the U.S., but only a few dozen documented cases of MPD.
Also a common mistake: Multiple Personality Disorder.
It has been so commonly-used in lazy Writing like this that people often forget that the actual term is now Dissociative Identity Disorder. In other words, they slip in and out of their own identity.
On a less scientific note, that was DEFINITELY the Stock Footage that killed people in ‘Shark Attack 3.’
Aaaaa shoot, I must take a moment to correct you, sorry. Multiple Personality Disorder (now known as Dissociative Identity Disorder because “multiple personalities” was implying that the biggest problem was the different personalities, not a lack of one single identity) =/= schizophrenia. DID is, to put it simply, more of a coping mechanism for trauma whereas schizophrenia is more biologically induced. They can be comorbid, though, along with Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, and epilepsy. Sometimes it can be difficult to diagnose because the identities may not be aware of the others. But yeah, the link with schizophrenia is old and outdated, so just thought I’d try and enlighten to combat TV’s blatantly inaccurate portrayal of complicated psychological disorders. 🙂
I adore these, omg… Sometimes when I can’t sleep, I put them on autoplay and fall asleep to them. It’s soothing somehow. Keep it up!

Another common TV trope about the brain that I STILL hear all the time is that we only use 10% of it. This is absolute rubbish. No one has ever been brought into an ER with a head injury and been told, “Don’t worry, it’s in the 90% of your brain you don’t use.” This myth has been exploited for decades by self-help gurus (like L. Ron Hubbard, among others) who claim to know the secret to unlocking people’s hidden potential, and it is flatly contradicted by both the findings of neurobiology and the logic of evolution. Modern medical imaging technology finds no dormant regions in our brains sitting around waiting to be activated, nor would anyone expect it to. If such potential actually existed, we’d be using it. Evolution doesn’t create things and then not use them. That’s just silly.
Yeah, the “We use 10% of our brains” is like saying, “Nothing’s currently passing through your intestines, so they aren’t needed!” Parts of our brains may be inactive at any one time, but there’s no “useless” bit that if only we could access we could be hyperintellgent/read minds/levitate (or whatever other wacky hijinks you need for your plot).
…I’m now wondering if Baywatch (or BW Nights) introduced a character who COULD use 100% of their brain and so could read minds or walk on water. I guess I’ll have to keep watching!
