* HeReallyCanAct: David Hasslehoff actually gives a pretty powerful performance in the two-part episode "Shattered," but was unfortunately let down by the ludicrous script and the obscene ProductPlacement.

* StockFootageFailure: The Season 4 episode "Lover's Cove" reuses footage of a car plunging into the ocean from the Season 2 episode "If Looks Could Kill." The problem? The car crash victim in Season 2 was a murderer who had a wrapped up corpse in her backseat, which still appears in the Season 4 episode.

** Although Baywatch was once the most popular syndicated TV show in the world, it's popularity declined rapidly once home broadband Internet became affordable to the average person. Baywatch served as a porn substitute for guys who didn't have access to actual porn.

* YouLookFamiliar:
** Richard Jaeckel played Mitch's old mentor who dies in the PilotMovie; and starting in the 2nd season, Lieutenant (later Captain) Ben Edwards.
** Nancy Valen had a small part in the PilotMovie, many years before getting cast as Captain Samantha Thomas in the 7th season.
** Jeff Altman first appears as Fred Rachins, a guy who wants to be a lifeguard, in "The Drowning Pool", then as a man on his honeymoon in "Lifeguards Can't Jump", but later appears as a completely different character, a Hollywood movie producer, in "Rescue Bay". He later appears in "Scorcher", playing secret service agent Dudley Dawson, and AGAIN in three 1998 episodes, playing medical supply salesman Ed Symes. Sure are a lot of guys running around L.A. that look exactly like the same man, aren't there?

** And Kelly Packard played two different girls on two separate two-parters (in 1991 and 1995) before landing the role of April in 1997.
** Alexandra Paul returned in "Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding", but not as Stephanie (for obvious reasons).

** Heather Campbell, who played Neely for one episode, later appeared in ''Baywatch Nights'' as a phone sex operator.
** Carmen Electra played a character named Candy in an episode of ''Baywatch Nights'' before playing Lani in ''Baywatch'' proper.
