Starring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson this iconic television show first aired in 1989 to lukewarm reviews and poor viewing figures.
Hasselhoff believed in its potential and took over the show as producer.
The rest made television history!
Baywatch 2 eventually became the most watched TV show of all time with over a billion people watching its weekly instalments.
In so doing it made iconic stars of David Hasselhoff (The Hoff), Pamela Anderson, Carmen Electra,Yasmine Bleeth and Tracey Bingham.
What was its appeal?
This new six set DVD release is a typical example of what was on the menu.
Beautiful young men and women put in danger physically and emotionally and winning against the odds.
It tells the stories of Lifeguards who patrol the numerous (and dangerous) beaches of Los Angeles County.
“The Hoff” plays the old salt lifeguard Mitch Buchannon who has seen it all and is there every season to advise and come to the rescue of the new young lifeguards and the people who get themselves into trouble in and out of the sea.
Each episode quickly sets the scene, puts characters in danger and rescues them at the last minute.
This is all delivered up in bite size episodes of 45 minutes.
Scantily clad young lovelies are handsomely filmed to their advantage with the Hoff casting a fatherly eye over it all.
There are notable images which linger long in the mind.
The stories are good if undemanding.
In a series that had many years still left to run this season shows us the formula at its winning best.
Give yourself “a nice day” and catch this easy on the eye series.
With a running time of around nine hundred and ninety minutes you can pull up your beach lounger and treat yourself to “a nice day” and catch this easy on the eye series.
