Comparison between the TV broadcast on German TV station Nitro on 10.04.2019 (22:50 / international HD master) and the German DVD (featuring the original version) by Kinowelt (FSK 12)

- 4 differences
- No runtime difference


In the comparison of the pilot episode, we have already summarized everything about the problems with the HD remastering of Baywatch, which is different in songs and also censored in nude scenes, at least right at the beginning.

Episode 1x05 (Second Wave) has no runtime difference, but again some beach scenes were exchanged. But all of it is really quite trivial, so that you can live quite well with the HD version of this episode.

Two last remarks:
* The episodes were dubbed in NTSC speed and are also included on the German DVDs, although they are otherwise of course PAL standard. With Nitro, on the other hand, the episodes run at true PAL speed, which explains the even shorter running time.
* It should also be noted that we will not list the exchanged songs in detail.

Runtimes are ordered as follows: Nitro HD at PAL speed / FSK 12 DVD at NTSC speed

As usual, the opening credits deviate and the credits afterwards were also revised. Not included in cut duration/quantity.

The song for the montage of thoughtfully walking Eddie was also exchanged, of course. Although in the original, a few quick sequences of scenes were arranged to match drum beats exactly, the footage was not reworked there.
