Baywatch cast make fun of themselves
19 February 2012 | by MattiasSee all my reviews

I don't usually recommend people to see Baywatch episodes but this particular is well worth watching because of its tongue in cheek look at the production of a TV show, "Rescue Bay", about lifeguards on a beach in Malibu. The show includes a cast that is chosen more because of their looks than acting skills: Dolph Apolganger is the lifeguard lieutenant Mike Tower, police officer Sly Hutchinson is patrolling the beach with a revolver that would impress Harry Callahan and we have the budding romance between two of the lifeguards, a perky blonde and a beefcake.

"Rescue Bay" also includes a lot of female lifeguards running around on the beach in skimpy swimwear. Finally the Baywatch cast shows that they don't take themselves and the show too seriously.
