Douglas Schwartz said in an interview that Hulk Hogan would often spend his Friday nights at Hooters restaurant, after that week's episode had concluded filming. Thunder in Paradise was one of the first acting gigs of Heidi Mark, who was herself a Hooters girl, prior to her acting career. Schwartz himself owned a Hooters restaurant, along with his wife.

If Hulk Hogan hadn't been in this show, I would not have watched it. It was only the appearance of Hogan that attracted me to this show in the first place.
I always loved shows about super vehicles. In the 80's we had Airwolf (a helicopter), Knight Rider (a talking car) and Street Hawk (a motorcycle). Thunder in Paradise was about a super boat far superior to any normal boat.
I quite like Hogan's appearances in films but Thunder in Paradise was pretty unspectacular. There was one good episode where WCW wrestler Sting appeared but the rest of the series was pretty average.
This show is only really suitable for Hulk Hogan fans who can't get enough of the man (like me).
