Alot of action and Alison Armitage, what more can I wish for!

Author: television23

I really liked this show because it has Alison Armitage in it. She is terrific looking and an ex playmate and can fight too. The action is alot of fun even though some of the stories are weak. But who cares when you can watch Alison for an hour. I miss the show and hope it will be rerun soon.

this H.E.A.T. sizzles . . .

. . . out. Some how, ACAPULCO H.E.A.T. was reincarnated five years after it's last episode, though most of the cast was new. This time it was syndicated, so I could never keep up with it, though I never really tried. The episodes I did see were never really that great, and some made the first show look Shakespearean in comparison. But the only reason I ever watched (when I did) was for Alison Armitage, who (along with Michael Worth) was the only member of the first show to make it to the second. Alison Armitage in a bikini (or other skimpy clothing) for an hour each week was reason enough for me to watch.

Love it

This TV show was very beautiful, interesting and so entertaining. Plus hot actors and actresses, impressive locations. They should have made much more seasons. They never appreciate great series. I liked season 1. 5 years later, they made another one. Alison Armitage and Michael Worth were left from original team and it was great because their characters were my favorite in season one. I adore Alison so much - she's so beautiful, not to mention sexy. Lydie Denier and Christa Sauls were new to the team. I liked beautiful Lydie, Christa was annoying sometime but still cute. I liked her as well. I miss this series. They don't make shows like this anymore

Alison Armitage is amazing looking and I would watch this series just for her. The gorgeous locations and other amazing girls is another reason to watch the show and the action works too. A light fun in the sun series that really delivers!

My favorite T&A series of the 90's

Although named "Acapulco HEAT", the base of operations for the team was Puerto Vallarta with most of the location filming done there. For anyone who has spent any time in PV, a lot of the locations should be familiar,including the marina,the Krystal Vallarta hotel,grounds and pool,old town,and some great landscape shots from the "romantic zone" looking down at Banderas Bay. The series featured some great characters including the adorable Christa Sauls as Joanna (the tech geek),as well as the butt kicking Micheal Worth as Tommy, and of course the lovely Lydie Denier as Nicole and the Beautiful Allison Armitage as Cat. I'm surprised this series didn't continue as I considered the stories were more interesting than "Baywatch" in a much more beautiful location.I was really glad the see the full second season come out on DVD. I watch it every time I need A T&A blast from the past.

If Andy Sidaris had directed a cross between "Baywatch" and "Charlie's Angels"....

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

....the result would probably have looked a lot like "Acapulco H.E.A.T". It follows Sidaris' Bullets, Bombs and Babes formula, it has a sunny-beachy-bikinied atmosphere, and it centers on three women who work as private investigators for hire. Of course there are differences as well: it's much tamer than Sidaris' films (the titillation stops at the bikinis; there is absolutely no nudity. Also there is barely a drop of blood, even when people get shot), the action takes place almost exclusively on land, and the three heroines are accompanied by a male lead, who does most of the heavy "field" work. The cast has good chemistry and you can tell that they had fun working with each other: Alison Armitage is the fit athletic one, Lydie Denier is the luscious exotic one (well, exotic for an American series; she's French), Christa Sauls is the cute geeky one, and Michael Worth is the martial arts expert. So the cast and the setting are attractive enough, but where the show falls significantly short is the action itself; overuse of slow motion, too-tight close-ups, poor editing, and usually short length make most of the action/fight scenes unsatisfying. There aren't many notable guest stars, either (the biggest name is David Carradine, who appears in the penultimate episode). At least the show never really takes itself too seriously, and the theme song just rocks! ** out of 4.
