Birmingham’s Trash Film Club have spent the last few years happily wallowing in cinematic trash, but this November, hosts Luke and David turn their jaded eyes to the small screen with a ‘celebration’ of appalling 1990s spin-off Baywatch Nights, which saw David Hasselhoff’s clueless lifeguard Mitch open (what else?) a detective agency.
Made for literal pennies, the first series of this televisual abomination was a relatively sedate affair compared to the second batch of episodes, which went all in on ripping off The X Files without any of the imagination or budget. Ghosts, demons, monsters – you name it, David Hasselhoff was going to defeat it with very little effort or interest. This unique live event features two episodes from the series, including the infamous instalment in which Hasselhoff time travels to an 1890s brothel. Seriously, that’s a real episode. Featuring live commentary and naughty words, Trash TV Club is not for the weak of heart.
