Baywatch Is Now on Amazon Prime Video!


"I'm always ready, I won't let you out of my sight!"

This is huge news for me. Believe it or not, I'm actually quite a fan of the show Baywatch. Reason number 1: David Hasselhoff, star of one of my all-time favorite shows, Knight Rider. Then there's the setting: every episode featured beautiful lifeguards placed against the backdrop of sun, sand, and the Pacific Ocean. I know Baywatch has been a punchline on Friends and I know that it deserves some of the jokes that have been thrown its way, but at the end of the day, Baywatch is not all that different from the American International Pictures "beach movies" that I love so much. No, it's not high art and it didn't have award winning scripts, but it was fun, and it ultimately had an uplifting message that I think we could use a little bit more of today. Plus, it featured quite a few stars, or actors that soon would be: Pamela Anderson, Carmen Electra, Nicole Eggert, Yasmine Bleeth, Mila Kunis, and some guy named Jason Momoa. The tone of the show is not entirely easy to replicate, as evidenced by my movie review of the 2017 feature film starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Zac Efron.
