Baywatch: Season 1

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.Read more ›
