  • Foul play.

    In terms of great Baywatch episodes, this one is definitely one of the best. Again, as the one before, it had the right combination of action, comedy and just the usual lifeguard activities which I always love watching.



    The main plot was quite interesting because it was tough to figure out who killed the father. The music during the beginning of the episode and the weird behavior of the man's son made it seem like he was guilty, but the clues left were just too obvious. I even suspected the wife to be the murderer, only to eventually learn that it was the man's nephew that murdered the old man. It was a very interesting storyline for me, and I was glad Jill got some time to be in the spotlight.



    As for the other story, it was really entertaining to watch Fred trying to be a lifeguard. The sad man obviously needs some mental help, and I was worried about what might happen if he doesn't know how to do things. All in all, it turned out way funnier than I thought it would.moreless
