Editorial Reviews

NTSC/Region 0. Where do we start? Baywatch began as one of the most critically-panned shows on television when it first debuted in 1989. But star David Hasselhoff took the reigns and steered the show to great success and the series lasted more than a decade before fading off into the sunset. Here is the first season in it's entirety with all the Hasselhoff you could ever desire. During this crucial first season, there were more storylines and less on-screen bouncy-bits but there are still plenty of visual candies for all to enjoy. Own a piece of history today!

I watched this show from the second episode on when it aired on NBC. I'd missed the pilot for a reason I can't recall, but I enjoyed the show. It was fun with a pretty good cast. Then, because it had ranked 50th in the Nielsen ratings, NBC pulled the plug. Almost two years later, it was finally announced that the show was picked up by another network. It was never the same after that. Only Mitch, Eddie, Shaunie, and Garner came back from the original cast. You could tell immediately that the show just didn't have a quality feel to it that it had in its pilot season. I watched the show on and off until I'd given up. After that, the show went "playmate crazy."

To me, this is the only season of Baywatch that is worth watching. The
acting and stories are much better than what you'd find in the subsequent seasons. While it's true, that the show flaunted female parts, it did focus, to some degree, on the lives and jobs of lifeguards of L.A. County. Granted, they took some liberties with these roles, as you often found Mitch and his friend, Craig Pomeroy (Parker Stevenson) employing themselves as crime-stoppers as well as lifeguards, but you generally gave for a bit of leeway there, because the show was entertaining. You also have to remember that back then, dramas were not going for a lot of realism.

Another advantage this season had were veteran actors such as Monte Markham playing the authoritarian Captain Don Thorpe, who always took his job as a lifeguard captain very seriously, and usually at the expense of all junior lifeguards around him.

I think in some regards, the reason the show was so much better, was that they had a bigger budget to work with, being initially with NBC.

Unlike the earlier mis-titled "Season 1" DVD that was released in the US a couple of years ago, this Australian import actually contains all the episodes from the real first season of Baywatch when it was an NBC network series. There's no Pamela Anderson or Alexandra Paul. Instead we have former Miss USA Shawn Weatherly, the beautiful Holly Gagnier, and the show's original Playboy playmate, Erica Eleniak. Long-time viewers who miss the flamboyant characters of the later syndicated seasons will have to console themselves with David Hasselhoff's extremely gay hairdo, which was in full bloom even at this early stage. The six-disk set offers absolutely no extras (the episode titles appear in an unnumbered list on the case, and the only way to tell which disk each one is on is to count them off in groups of four), but the hard-case package is good. The quality of the 4x3 video is adequate, but this collection will be a welcome addition to anyone who was interested in the first season of the show.

Like almost everyone I was slighly upset when I found out the other first season was really season 2. This season has some of the episodes that made it a classic. Plus it had some of my all time favorite characters; Craig, Gina, Jill, Trevor and Cort. It doesn't have any extras and the episode title is not listed on the DVDs. This does make it kind of hard if you are looking for a specific episode. But that all aside this is a must have for any Baywatch fan.

This 1989-90 Season of BAYWATCH was the original BAYWATCH series that ran on NBC from the Fall of 1989 to the Spring of 1990, but had tanked after only 8 months when a tidal wave struck in the ratings after Jill Reilly(Shawn Weatherly's)departure, which resulted in this shows cancellation in the Summer of 1990 before BAYWATCH was revived in syndication in the Fall of 1991 with better ratings than before.

Unfortunately, this BAYWATCH DVD was not what I had expected or hoped for since the introduction credits didn't have the original BAYWATCH theme song of "Save Me" by Peter Cetera that was originally played at the beginning of each of these episodes when they were on NBC, plus they deleted the previews of most of these episodes and they even deleted and replaced the original songs of each episodes with other songs in every episode, plus this DVD didn't even provide Closed Captioned on top of that either.

Therefore this BAYWATCH DVD was totally not worth it and almost nothing like it was shown on NBC.

This season that was broadcast on NB, ShawnieC before it later went into syndication, This season had all the bikinis and beachs but was more about the male lifeguards. This is the season with Parker Stevenson, who got the job because a few years earlier made a theatrical movie with Sam Elliott called "Lifeguard." Also halfway thru they cast the male lifeguard "Cort" who bonded with Hasselhoff's character, Billy Warlock's character, and Stevenson's. The season started with beauty contestant winner Shawn Weatherly but halfway thru the season they decided to go in another direction so she was killed off by a shark. This was also the season that introduced us to Eddie's (Billy Warlock) favorite lifeguard and love interest Shawnie (Erika Eleniak). I remember when after the show ended its NBC run and came back 2 years later that most of the guys were gone,, Shawnie got bustier, Hobie looked different, and the male storylines were gone and they started bringing in sexy Playboy playmates and other sexy women to carry out the storylines. Toward the end of its run they did bring back Parker Stevenson and the "Cort" character back for some great storylines.
