Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Pleasures come no guiltier, but we come to praise Baywatch, not bury it in the sand. Besides, 145 countries can't be wrong. Television doesn't get more escapist than an hour at the beach with veteran lifeguard and surfer Mitch Buchannon (David Hasselhoff) and his close-knit colleagues. The episodes from the series' first syndicated season tackle some pretty heady topics, including gangs, homelessness, pollution, and eco-terrorism. And if a bikini contest will help raise money to help save the orcas, well then, so be it. The guards' sudsy personal lives also provide a groundswell of drama. In "The Fabulous Buchannon Boys," Mitch's "screw-up" brother (guest star Tim Thomerson) arrives with his estranged son, who threatens to be a bad influence on Mitch's boy, Hobie (Jeremy Jackson). Several episodes deal with the relationship between Eddie (Billy Warlock), the former delinquent who has turned his life around, and girlfriend Shauni (Erika Eleniak, the show's original lone Baywatch babe), whose father disapproves of Eddie. Old wave meets new in the comical episode "Now Sit Right Back and You'll Hear a Tale," a surreal Gilligan's Island fantasy complete with the "Little Buddy" himself, Bob Denver, Mary Ann (Dawn Wells), and amusing turns by ensemble members Monte Markham as Mr. Howell, Gregory Alan Williams as the Skipper, and Eleniak as a fittingly va-va-voomy Ginger. No one will mistake the dialogue for Aaron Sorkin's, but the handsome cast does manage to breathe life into such lines as "What is it with these surfers, Mitch?" The sun may have set on Baywatch, but this box set offers the irresistible promise of an endless summer. Longtime Baywatch fans will especially want to dive into the bonus fifth disc, which contains the original pilot episode.
