why it is hotter than BAYWATCH
13 October 2015 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Why it is hotter than BAYWATCH: (1) Even Pamela Anderson in the BAYWATCH monokini cannot compare to Catherine Oxenberg, who is the epitome of elegance and style. Born the daughter of a Princess, played a Princess in her debut, and IS a Princess in my book. (2) No hammy ol' David Hasselhoff. I rest my case.

Must admit, way back then, it was shown on the national channel in the same time slot as BAYWATCH on the pay channel. I stuck with BAYWATCH but snuck peeks and ultimately was just ruining the afternoon that way. VCR? It was already occupied recording BAYWATCH where I had to avoid the constant barrage of ad breaks. Years later, I finally got to ACAPULCO H.E.A.T. by way of DVD, and it is one of my special favorites (and I've got enough to dwarf a real video store) while BAYWATCH tends to be embarrassingly bad unless there is a hot blonde fox in a red swimsuit on-screen. Sorry, BAYWATCH, but that's the way it is!

I do have the second series, but have yet to watch it. As for Alison Armitage, yeah, real scrumptious of course, but none of you have mentioned... Wait for her... Ooh I die for her... Holly Floria. Ooh be still my heart. She was in BIKINI ISLAND and ranks as One Of The Prettiest Girls On Film as far as The Raven is concerned. Her part wasn't big enough here, my only complaint.

Catherine Oxenberg is one classy helluva young lady, back then in DYNASTY, years later still incredibly cool and sexy. She is here one of my favorite film characters that I respect the most. Impossibly beautiful, and believable in the part.

Sure enough it is different from US equivalent action shows. But it is a whole lot of fun, and ranks up high on my list of shows that were prematurely axed for whatever insipid reason.
