Donna D'Errico of Baywatch
10 February 2017 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

So, this one comes in at a mere 5,6 on the IMDb ratings? Noticeably lower than all the other episodes. What's going on here? I'm currently investigating. My downloading had hit a snag, there's been episodes I couldn't find, and episodes I could only get in lower quality. This one I have in low quality, really weak graphics. Could that play a part, I wonder? Are the people rating it, doing so from memory dating back to 1995, or some later re-broadcast, or download? If not seen on a proper medium (television, DVD) a bad quality download shouldn't affect your vote, people.

It's one of my favorites, so my vote of 10 will help to even the score. Thank you.

About this episode: First appearance of Elisabeth Harnois, as Patty McGurk (come on, no way there is such a surname!), Tiffany's rival. She is a hot-looking blonde, sure to get in Miss Popularity, Queen Bee Tiffany's way. Just know there is gonna be feathers flying. Fun ahead...

Another milestone. No less a luminary than Playboy centerfold Donna D'Errico appears as a fantasy girl. She who later appears on BAYWATCH NIGHTS, and from there, on to BAYWATCH itself. And into the hearts and minds of a generation of young men. But it was little ol' UNHAPPILY EVER AFTER that got her first.

What fun!

And me with a low-resolution download!

{notice to all zany UEA fans: I'm the guy posting the quotes for the series episode by available episode, and this episode gets so good, IMDb can't believe what I'm submitting, it seems, and they're holding back posting it. Moving on for now, but at the end, I'll try again, so there's more to come!}

Temporary notice board:

{little Ross's quote re the chicken ranch: I've done my best. Does he say "hold the chicken" or "have the chicken"?} {I also have to apologize for the mistake "not up to pretty high standards" which should have read "Priddy High standards," but IMDb so values that long quote, that I can only correct it by first deleting the entire thing and then doing it over, and I'm not taking any chances, who knows if it will get accepted again?}
