Default Why doesn't there seem to be much focus on Baywatch today?

Despite being a mega-huge phenomenon back in the '90s? What's the reason for this? It was the most watched show in the world so why does it seem so forgotten? Obviously, Baywatch still has presence in mainstream media and the general public because of the recent movie starring The Rock and the news of the remastered version. But it doesn't seem to be talked about the way Seinfeld and Friends (even though, Baywatch at its peak, beat Friends in total weekly ratings and reached 1 billion viewers a week worldwide).

Is there any way to get original recordings from the 1990s of season 1?
The new airings seem VERY different. Different feel, different music. Its a different world. Can someone please help. I would love that very much!

There should be more about Baywatch in pop culture today. For sure!

I've gathered that Baywatch hasn't benefited too much from being in rerun circulation these days. It's much harder to introduce a show to a younger generation if they aren't easily assessible in syndication.

Also, Baywatch as a show in itself, hasn't exactly aged too well. At the end of the day, it was a show about seeing gorgeous women and men wearing very little clothing at the beach.

How exactly is the sight of attractive lifeguards that going to resonant with most young people when compared to something like Friends? Had the characters been and writing been more interesting and complex, then maybe there would've been much more to offer outside of that.
