Horror on TV: Baywatch Nights 2.4 “The Strike” (dir by David W. Hagar)

For tonight’s example of televised horror, we have another episode of Baywatch Nights!

In this episode, which originally aired on October 20th, David Hasselhoff rescues a young man from drowning and, before you can say X-Files, founds out that the man is connected to …. ROSWELL!  That’s right, it’s UFO time!

As with all episodes of Baywatch Nights, The Strike is silly and … well, actually, silly is the best way to describe it.  But it’s just so silly that it’s undeniably fun as well.

Plus, it’s take place on the beach!  Y’all like the beach, don’t you?


Horror on TV: Baywatch Nights 2.5 “Circle of Fear” (dir by Bruce Kessler)

For tonight’s horror on the lens, how about a chance to watch David Hasselhoff and Angie Harmon battle the forces of dark magic?

That’s right, it’s an episode of Baywatch Nights!  This episode shows what happens when Angie and David investigate the burned book that they found at the scene of an occult gathering.  It’s all a little bit silly but then again, that’s the charm of the show!


Horror on TV: Baywatch Nights 2.22 “A Thousand Words”

For tonight’s journey into the world of televised horror, we present to you the last ever episode of Baywatch Nights.  In this episode, David Hasselhoff and Angie Harmon investigate a haunted restraunt.  Then Angie disappears and the Hoff has to rescue her!

And you know what?

If you’ll remember, the only reason I started posting these episodes of Baywatch Nights was because Hulu went back on their word as far as free episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer were concerned.   If not for Jeff and his amazing memory, I wouldn’t have even know that Baywatch Nights had ever existed. But, even if Baywatch Nights was not exactly my first choice of shows to highlight this Halloween season, it’s really not that bad of a show.  From the episodes that I’ve seen, it definitely had a goofy charm and anything involving David Hasselhoff doing the full Hoff will always have some definite curiosity value.  Plus, I think he and Angie Harmon had a likable chemistry.

So, I have to admit, there’s a part of me that’s sad knowing that this was the last ever episode of Baywatch Nights.  As silly as the show may have been and despite the fact that the cameraman was always drunk, it was a fun show.  Who knows?  Maybe, someday in the future, I’ll do an in depth series of reviews on this series.

Hmmmm….maybe.  Actually, right now, I’m just looking forward to finishing up 2015.

But, anyway, here’s the final episode of Baywatch Nights!

Horror on TV: Baywatch Nights 2.21 — “The Vortex”

On tonight’s horror on TV, we present the next-to-last episode of Baywatch Nights.  In this episode, David Hasselhoff and Angie Harmon visit a Native American fortune teller (Floyd “Red Crow” Westerman) and end up entering a vortex that sends them into the future.  They then watch as their future selves investigate something weird that happened on a ship that’s just arrived from the Amazon.

This is a very weird episode and it originally aired on May 9th. 1997.

Horror on TV: Baywatch Nights 2.20 “Hot Winds”

On tonight’s episode of Baywatch Nights, the wind is making people in California go insane!  Could it because the wind is hot and annoying?  Or is it that there’s a Satanist doing something evil out in the desert?

Don’t worry, California!  David Hasselhoff and Angie Harmon are on the case!

This episode originally aired on May 3rd, 1997.

Horror On TV: Baywatch Nights 2.16 “Zargtha”

Tonight on Baywatch Nights

A mythical wolf man from Eastern Europe is murdering runaways in Los Angeles.  Can David Hasselhoff and Angie Harmon save the day?

Watch to find out!

And remember … “Don’t go out at night, or the zargtha will get you!”

(Zargtha originally aired on April 5th, 1997)

Horror on TV: Baywatch Nights 2.14 “Nights to Dragon One”

Oh my God, y’all are going to love this.

In this episode of Baywatch Nights, David Hasselhoff and Angie Harmon are hired to track down a missing man and his daughter.  Their search leads to them becoming literally trapped inside a virtual reality where they either have to defeat the crazed Game Master (Vincent Schiavelli) or die!  There’s even a scene where Angie Harmon has to pick up and roll a giant die!  Taking full advantage of the inherent ludicrousness of David Hasselhoff’s screen persona, this is an episode that has to be seen to be believed.

So, watch below and believe.

Horror on TV: Baywatch Nights 2.13 “Frozen Out Of Time”

On tonight’s episode of horror on TV, we have an episode of Baywatch Nights that originally aired on February 2nd, 1997.  In this one, two 900 year-old Vikings are causing chaos in Los Angeles!  Who can stop them?

David Hasselhoff, of course!

Horror on TV: Baywatch Nights 2.2 “The Creature”

For tonight’s horror on TV, we have another episode of Baywatch Nights!  In this one, David Hasselhoff and friends battle a half-woman, half-fish creature named Silver Eyes!  That’s right — it’s basically Killer Mermaid all over again but this time, David Hasselhoff’s involved!

And yes, it’s just as silly as you’d think.  But that’s okay.  Sometimes, we need a little silliness…

This episode, entitled The Creature, originally aired on October 6th, 1996.


Horror On TV: Baywatch Nights 2.1 “Terror of the Deep”

Oh my God, y’all — I am so mad at Hulu right now!

So, my original plan for tonight and tomorrow was to post the Graduation Day two-part season 3 finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  But, without any warning, Hulu has decided that they are no longer going to offer season 3 of Buffy for free.  Now, if you want to watch season 3, you have to subscribe to Hulu.

And, quite frankly, that’s not a bad idea.  I subscribe to Hulu.  I like it.  But, at the same time, if you’re going to advertise a show as being free then it should at least remain free until November.

Anyway, the point is that I like subscribing to Hulu but I’m not going to demand that our readers do the same thing just so they can watch something on this site.  So, with Buffy no longer an option, I’m instead going to share an episode from another supernatural show from the 1990s.  On Baywatch Nights, David Hasselhoff battled supernatural creatures while defending the beaches of California.  And it’s all just as campy and silly as you might think.

And, even better, every episode of Baywatch Nights is available (for free!) on YouTube.  (Or, at least they are until the copyright holder finds out…)  Anyway, here’s the 1st episode of the 2nd season of Baywatch Nights.  It originally aired on September 29th, 1996 and it features David Hasselhoff and a sea monster!
