Watch Pacific Blue
- 5 Seasons
Pacific Blue is an American crime drama following the lives of a group of police officers working in the bicycle patrol department of the Santa Monica Police Department. Often compared to fellow 1990s drama Baywatch, Pacific Blue ran for five seasons from 1996 to 2000 for a total of 101 episodes running for around 45 minutes each. Although it originally focused on the life of the head of the Bicycle Patrol department Anthony Palermo the show moved to focus on a younger cast performing more bicycle stunts after Palermo's departure from the show in the season three finale. Lieutenant Anthony Palermo is the head of a police department patrolling the beaches of Santa Monica to keep them safe from crime and antisocial behavior. Palermo is joined by a group of new recruits to his department who he must train and mold into a team to fight crime on the beaches in a non-violent manner. Palermo is joined by Chris Kelly, a female officer who has no practical experience as an officer after working in the Santa Monica PD public relations department. Cory McNamara also joins the department and is looking for a successful career to impress her police officer parents and grandfather. A number of troubled officers also join the department and eventually come to see Palermo as a form of father figure; Palermo is a divorced father of a teenage girl who often finds herself in trouble throughout the seasons of the show. Each episode of Pacific Blue is a self contained story detailing a crime or problem facing a guest star in the show, often with a link to one of the police officer characters in the show. Guest stars in Pacific Blue often include members of the World Wrestling Federation, such as Chyna and Shawn Michaels. Despite being broadcast on the U.S. cable network USA Pacific Blue often crossed over with Baywatch and included the character of Lani, played by Baywatch's Carmen Electra appearing in Pacific Blue on a number of occasions.
