    Wow, after being called a dork, I’m honestly surprised Mitch didn’t get Hobie 3 out of the vat and arrange an “unfortunate” accident for Hobie 2.

    And for my final Birthday present, a Baywatching with line-dancing and a Hobie B-plot that’s resolved with A&W product placement.

    Seems like the Martina McBride plot turned into the Jimmy Ray Lostboy plot halfway through. Pamela wasn’t a country girl, she obviously liked crappy L.A. hair metal when it was already past it’s heyday.

    A dork? That’s the best they could do? They’re supposed to be 14, pretty sure she would have called him something with the word gay in it.

    Was that really how the Hobie plot went? His crush had  a crush on Mitch, then she calls him a dork, she later apologizes and he pretty much told her to fuck off. Was she only apologizing to him for shallow reasons? If not (or even if so) then Hobie is such an asshole! Being called a dork is nowhere near the “unforgivable” territory. Is his ego so fragile that even the smallest insults mean he has to cut a person off completely. Hopefully his future lovers don’t ever have bad days or anything like that.

    So, the kid on the pier yelling “Dad! Dad!” falls off, turning into an adult on the way down, and apparently only has one set of clothes, since he’s wearing the same outfit he was in the picture of him his dad was showing around, and Hobie saves the day by rescuing the kid. And this resolved the estrangement issue how, exactly? Oh, I forgot, this is Baywatch, where problems evaporate like morning dew.

    Meanwhile a hormonally-supercharged 14-year-old girl has the hots for Mitch, who apparently doesn’t have the good sense to step out gracefully out of the picture and let Hobie go after her himself, instead inviting her over for dinner. Because that’s totally what every adolescent boy with a hard-on for a girl wants, to have his father right there watching them, as opposed to, you know, taking her out for a burger and a movie, and trying to get her alone.

    “A dork? You’re a dork! Oh my God, my son is a dork! No dork ever sprang from the loins of the Hoff! I have no son!”

      Yeah, I picked up on the turning into an adult thing, too. And I usually miss that kind of stuff. Even better: his hair is completely dry and neatly combed afterwards.

    Breaking a major rule with that title, Baywatch. Don’t remind us of a much better show we could be watching.

    …assuming Northern Exposure was still on the air at the time of this episode; we’re really spoiled with TV series on DVD, OnDemand, or streaming.

    Two music videos in this episode and not one featured David Hasselhoff? That’s not right!
