Entertainment Weekly Says 'Jack Of All Trades' Was A Ripple Effect Of Baywatch
So there is an excellent, and long, read of Entertainment Weekly's article on Baywatch and how it spawned great 90's syndicated television like Xena, Hercules, and even Jack of all Trades (although JOAT didn't start in the 90's). Now first run Syndication is dead, which sucks, but they go onto mention the ripple effect that Baywatch had on Jack of all Trades. Bruce Campbell also gets a mention in the article, here is the excerpt:
"Had it not been for Baywatch, we would never have had Bruce Campbell running around like a lunatic called the ''Dragoon'' in Jack of All Trades. Had it not been for Baywatch, there would have never been Cleopatra 2525, which featured an exotic dancer cryogenically frozen and thawed out 500 years in the future, and yes, you just read that last sentence correctly".
