NBC's new ''The Last Templar'' evokes the full-on hokeyness of first-run non-network fare of days gone by. But will it measure up to such lovable lightweights as ''Baywatch,'' ''Xena,'' ''V.I.P.,'' and ''Acapulco H.E.A.T.''?
THUNDER IN PARADISE (1994)
STARRING Hulk Hogan, Carol Alt
PREMISE Is it cheating if I say that this is like Knight Rider, but with a super-advanced boat instead of a car? Because it totally is. Two former Navy SEALs (Hogan and Chris Lemmon) flit all over the high seas as crime-fighting mercenaries while making time to raise Hogan's daughter and flirt with a hottie bar owner (Alt).
REDEEMING QUALITIES The boat. It talks.
