Trivia

Certain home video releases presented the series in double-length episode format. These were formed by combining two episodes from the series, which were often non-sequential in terms of the original broadcast order. Some double-length episodes were given a new on-screen title to better reflect the combined content, while others used the title from just one of the comprising episodes. See more »

A 14 year-old's fantasy
27 February 1999 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

Sure, the stories are tired out, juvenile, morality plays. Sure, they attach a 90's value system to people supposedly from times centuries past. Nevertheless, this thing has some of the coolest fight scenes ever shot. Besides, all the women look and dress like they just jumped out of an adolescent's daydream. Baywatch is nothing compared to these babes.
