Storyline

This long-running series follows the adventures of a team of lifeguards on a crowded resort beach. Veteran lifeguard Mitch Buchannon watches over the younger lifeguards that come and go with each passing season as they keep the beaches safe for vacationers. Frequently he must take action to save them from the raging seas and from the raging tempers that sometimes flare up between the young guards in this stressful job.

4 November 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

When I donated plasma, the center often had the tv set to USA, where Baywatch was being played. If it wasn't funny enough watching David Hasselhoff's character successfully driving away a shark by kicking at it (i'm no ichthyologist, but I suspect a hungry shark won't be deterred by a defensive victim), it was of Mr. Hasselhoff surviving a 30,000-foot plunge into the ocean (people have committed suicide by jumping off tall bridges into water). If T & A or laughable incidents are your thing, then I suppose Baywatch is your thing.
