Tread Perilously - ‘Baywatch: Muddy Waters’

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: Baywatch's "Muddy Waters"

Another Tread Perilously Grab Bag month begins with an episode of Baywatch called "Muddy Waters."

The Ballad of John D. Cort continues as Cort must make back a favor to Mitch by teaching the new class of lifeguards at Raging Waters in San Dimas, CA. But Cort, being Cort, pulls Eddie into the job, who in turn attracts the eye of a trainee and the ire of another. Mitch, meanwhile, plans for Hobie's class to visit Baywatch, and Captain Thorpe seeks to fire Shauni after a photo of her at a guard tower ends up in a swimsuit calendar.

Geography Corner starts early as Erik and Justin discuss Raging Waters in San Dimas, CA. They also take a break to discuss Ms. Marvel. Justin is still surprised Baywatch had a writers room. The pair also end up discussing the Scott Bakula classic, Color of Night, and the films of Clive Barker. The career of Monte Markham gets examined. Eddie once again ends up looking like the worst. Erik argues for Erika Eleniak's talent as a TV actor. Captain Thorpe's descent into madness continues. Justin finally faces a full Mitch Buchannon storyline and theorizes how the presence of Cort would change Predator.
