Requires suspension of disbelief beyond any mortal man
20 September 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I just happened to open my TV and - Lo and behold! - this work of genius has just started. Anyone familiar with Baywatch knows it is an awful mess, with the music video-like montages often taking almost as much screen time than actual acting scenes. The acting is bad and it's all just an excuse to show some scantily clad people with the physique of porn stars. So I won't go any deeper into that here. I have another criticism.

Secondary criticism: Guido's mom happens to come to visit him at the same time an Italian actress arrives to shoot her new movie - what are the odds? Guido wants to impress his mom so he pretends to be a member of Baywatch with some help from C.J. and Summer. And of course, he accidentally manages to save someone from drowning. What a coincidence! But all this pales next to my main criticism: Mitch meets the Italian actress Lena Fiori and there is a kissing scene between them. Lena's wallet has been stolen, so she can't go to a motel or a hotel (never mind the fact that being part of a film's cast, she would have some accommodation provided by the filmmakers!). There is a brief moment where we sense that she and Mitch consider her staying at Mitch's place and going further than just a kiss. But what does the saintly Mitch do? He offers to lend Lena money for a hotel room! C'mon! NO MAN is that stupid and/or altruistic! By the way, did I mention that Lena is played by the insanely gorgeous Fabiana Udenio? Younger IMDb users may not be familiar with her, but in the 1990s she SCORCHED in guest star roles in practically everywhere: Bride of the Re-Animator, Quantum Leap, RoboCop 2, Walker - Texas Ranger, NYPD Blue, Mad About You, Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (she was Alotta Fagina), Babylon 5, Mortal Kombat: Conquest and The Magnificent Seven series. Come the new millennium, she could still be seen in The Wedding Planner and in a recurring role in 90210. Point is, she distracted anyone sexually oriented towards women from following the actual episode, which means NO WAY would any heterosexual/bisexual man let her go after that kiss. That scene was so far out in the realm of improbability that the distance can't be measured. It sucked the whole episode into a black hole of TV imaginationland completely removed from humanity itself.
