* ChannelHop: Debuted on NBC and lasted one season, then found a new life in syndication lasting 10 years. Also applies behind the scenes, as the NBC version was produced by [=GTG=] Entertainment (short for Grant Tinker-Garnett), while The Baywatch Production Company (later Tower 12 Productions) did the syndicated one.

Added DiffLines:

** Nicole Eggert didn't realize what type of show ''Baywatch'' was when she signed on, thinking it'd be akin to something like ''Series/BeverlyHills90210''. She quickly grew frustrated with the low writing quality and the absurd amount of {{Fanservice}}, the latter of which caused her to develop self-esteem and body image issues. She eventually asked to be let out of her contract before the show could damage her career any further, though she did later come back for the reunion movie.

Added DiffLines:

* CaliforniaDoubling: Subverted. ''Baywatch'' was mostly set on LA County beaches, where most of if was actually filmed.


Added DiffLines:

* OutOfOrder: A particularly bad one: Stephanie's latest boyfriend, Dr. Tom Morella, discovered Stephanie had skin cancer in "Bash at the Beach", but in the very next aired episode, "Free Fall", which was a holdover from season 5, Stephanie and Dr. Morella first meet.
** "Forbidden Paradise", originally written for season 5 and debuting on VHS in 1995, later debuted on TV as a two-parter in 1996. This is awkward if you're watching in airdate order on DVD, since the episode still featured Matt as a regular character, despite that David Charvet had left the show by that point.
