Baywatch focused on the work and personal lives of the LA County Lifeguards. These lifeguards not only dealt with drowning swimmers and shark attacks but also dealt with serial killers and nuclear bombs. The show launched the careers of many actresses like Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra – their outfits probably had something to do with that too.
In Knight Rider, Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff) is a police officer who’s double-crossed by an informant and nearly killed. After undergoing reconstructive surgery and taking on a new identity, he fights crime as a secret agent for Knight Industries. But all we really care about is KITT, the talking Trans Am.
