Horror on TV: Baywatch Nights 2.11 “Possession” (dir by David W. Hagar)

Tonight’s episode of Baywatch Nights deals with something that every lifeguard eventually has to deal with: demonic possession.

Well, actually, it’s not so much demonic possession as its dead serial killer possession but it’s still definitely not a good thing.  That’s especially true when it’s a friend and/or co-worker getting possessed.  I mean, it’s never fun to end a relationship but having to end it because someone managed to get possessed …. I just don’t see how you live that down.

This episode originally aired on February 2nd, 1997.


Horror on TV: Baywatch Nights 2.8 “Last Breath” (dir by Gregory J. Bonnan)

On tonight’s episode of Baywatch Nights, Mitch investigates the disappearance of two lifeguards.  Could it have something to do with an automotive accident from the past?  When a third lifeguard goes missing, Mitch’s investigation goes into overdrive because this latest lifeguard is a co-star and if something happen to her, they’ll have to redo the show’s opening credits.

This episode takes a break from the usual paranormal stories that were featured for most of Baywatch Night‘s second season.  But the underwater cage is still pretty creepy!

This episode originally aired on November 17th, 1996.



Horror on TV: Baywatch Nights 2.2 “Creature” (dir by David W. Hagar)

In tonight’s episode of televised horror, it’s David Hasselhoff vs. a mermaid.  Basically, the mermaid wants to procreate but it also wants to kill and that leads to all sorts of conflicts and….

Well, listen, this episode is pretty silly.  To be honest, they’re all pretty silly.  But that’s kind of the fun of it all, isn’t it?

This episode of Baywatch Nights originally aired on October 6th, 1996.


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!
