StoryJust when you thought it was safe to go back to the beach comes Son of the Beach, an uproarious Baywatch parody that revels in juvenile idiocy, bawdy puns, gleefully tasteless social and ethnic stereotypes, and the skimpiest wardrobe on prime time. Co-creator Timothy Stack is the world's greatest lifeguard Notch Johnson, a paunchy, pasty, middle-aged boy scout who patrols the surf with his team of bikini-clad hardbodies. Former Playmate Jaime Bergman is B.J., a daffy trailer-park bimbo, and Leila Arcieri is Jamaica, a hip-hop honey from the hood. Roland Kickinger provides the hunk factor as the body-building "breath of fresh Aryan" from the Fatherland, Chip Rommel, and Kim Oja does straight-man duty as the obligatory "sensible, flat-chested one."
These well-endowed lifeguards battle the everyday dangers of beach life--toxic waste, insidious cult leaders, mobsters, assassins, and randy sea monsters--and still find time for a racy video fashion show in every episode ("A lingerie party? What would that be like?"). Produced by Howard Stern's company, this anything-goes spoof has all the restraint of a bachelor party with a no-host bar and the energized delivery of a screwball cartoon.
The 3-DVD set features 21 episodes of political incorrectness, including the never broadcast episode "Chip's a Goy," in which the studly German sacrifices his foreskin for an Israeli beach babe, and the inspired "Queefer Madness," a gonzo remake of The Wild One with David Arquette, Lucas Haas, and Neil Patrick Harris as beatnik rebels on BMX bikes. Ride the big one, daddy-o! --Sean Axmaker
