In this -far less successful, hence shorter-lived- Baywatch spin-off, Mitch Buchannon, the reliable lieutenant in charge of an LA county beach's lifeguards, moonlights -often literally, at night, hence the title- as a private detective, who investigates and solves various crimes, often in some way related to his beloved beach and/or the ocean (e.g. as smuggle route, hiding place, dumping site), sometimes aided by several other characters which vary in the series, including young lifeguard Griff Walker.

This show was seriously too much. "Baywatch Nights" was like some brilliant combination of the original "Baywatch" and "The X Files" by way of Raymond Chandler. I only got to watch a little of it back in 1996 before they canceled it. Hasselhof would always be contending with aliens, mutants, or even demons! Man, I wish they still put stuff this crazy on television. It really beats the crap they have nowadays, like "Mutant X". They didn't know what a good thing they had. "Baywatch Nights" is probably the best thing to grace the small screen since "Playhouse 90" in the 50s! This is a great one, and you can quote Reggie on that.
