Even those who have never actually watched a single Baywatch episode have heard of this iconic show from the 1990's. Many others have grown up watching it or even watching when their parents watched, but nearly all of us instantly visualize a line-up of stunning lifeguards in red swimsuits running on the beach in slow-motion.
