Did You Know?


When Craig goes to the hotel room to talk to Lou, he arranges the blanket around himself like a toga, with part of it thrown over his shoulder. It remains this way until Craig starts to return to his room, but in the next shot the portion that was on his shoulder is now on the crook of his arm. See more »

Not son of beaches then (dvd)
28 June 2012 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

The baywatch DVD collection is bizarre in France. It starts with the season 3 (4 episodes by disc) then with disc 6, we have 3 episodes of season 4 with 1 of season 1. That's why I can watch and review episodes from this first season.

For what i have seen, i can't really distinguish it from the next two ones: same Mitch and Gardner, same sun, same beaches, same rescue outside the sea than inside (lol), same feeling that those lifeguards are the only one to know swimming (lol), same magic "punch" that stops even the baddest villain (lol), in conclusion, same unbelievable and humanist stories.

But it's true that this season has also less impact: First, the opening song is deadly lethargic even thought the ending theme with the piano is cool. Next, the Baywatch team is a bit transparent: one is a mature adult and half time lawyer, another is a young introvert and the "babes" don't do a lot of things. Worst, the first incarnation of Hobbie hasn't the wit of Jeremy Jackson. On the other hand, the recurring wife Gina was a good character and the actress is a fine look alike of Jennifer.

My best episode pick is 1.7 "Rookie School " because it has a good action from the Pomeroys and it illustrates the strong asset of this show that along the baywatch team, the production knew always find great cast for the non recurring characters.
