  • Although the sights are beautiful, the premiere is less a story than a seascape, lacking the dramatic intensity and credible characters necessary to sustain an hour...You suspect that the creators of Baywatch are lifeguards moonlighting as writers. Show More

  • Judging by its initial effort, it's a harmless, pretty romp. [22 Sept 1989, p.1] Show More

  • There's no depth in Bodwatch -- er, Baywatch. It is what it is -- a day at the beach. Hunks 'n' Babes with Bodacious Bods, Sullying Sand 'n' Surf with Silly Stories. [22 Sept 1989, p.1] Show More
