Storyline

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.

more cheese from hasselhoff
21 June 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Cheese is what David Hasselhoff does best and it is replicated here in all it's glory.The original Baywatch was good.It had a huge following worldwide and brought in a lot of dollars.But this lame spin off with x-file style situations?It's terrible and that's putting it mildly.How could anyone possibly take Hasselhoffs character Mitch Buchanan seriously?Or come to think off it,could anyone take anything Hasselhoff has ever starred in seriously?Every time this show came on it was a reach for the remote moment.Thankfully in the UK and Ireland it was consigned to a graveyard slot of about 1.00am.Most people wouldn't have even bothered checking the listings for this piece of self indulgent crap.Basically an ego trip for Hasselhoff
