Baywatch was an NBC
action drama that debuted in
1989 and ran until 2001. The show's main character
base chained over the years, with David Hasselhoff,
starring as Mitch Buchannon, being the only constant.
Some stars that have been on the show over the years
include Parker Stevenson, Erika Eleniak, Pamela
Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth, and Carmen Electra. The
show was extremely popular, and one of the most watched
series around the world. Another version of the
show, Baywatch Hawaii, ran from 2009 to 2011.
There were other version in other parts of the world,
such as Baywatch Down Under (Australia).
If you remember, Baywatch was a
show about a group of nicely tanned lifeguards
responsible for the guests on at the resort beaches of
Los Angeles County.
Not only was the show about the life saving efforts of
the team, but also the interpersonal relationships
between lifeguards. Issues that needed attention
included shark attacks, earthquakes, serial killers, and
even a nuclear bomb on one show. Thankfully, in-between seasonal employees
who came and went on the show, Mitch Buchannon (Hasslehoff) was available to train new
recruits and help everyone get along nicely.
