Comparison between the TV broadcast on German TV station Nitro on 23.04.2019 (12:30 / international HD master) and the German DVD (featuring the original version) by Kinowelt (FSK 12)

- 5 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 1x13 (Reunion) there are only alternative shots with no difference in runtime. Apart from a strangely backwards played climax shot during a chase, the various adjustments during the final rowing duel are of course striking. But you can't see much sense in this, maybe the shots used for the HD-version were simply better preserved from the longer raw material of this scene.

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.

HD version 28.2 sec longer

03:34-03:36 / 03:14-03:16

Deviating close-up of a surfer.

No time difference

HD master (Nitro) Original version (German DVD)

37:39-37:40 / 38:45-38:46

Strange: When Garner pushes the barrier to the side and Jeff drives towards it with his car, the camera movement on the barrier turns into a backwards ride. Made more sense in the original version (as POV by Jeff), of course.

No time difference

HD master (Nitro) Original version (German DVD)

40:34-40:38 / 41:47-41:51

The HD master uses a different moment of the frontal shot of Mitch and Craig rowing.

No time difference

HD master (Nitro) Original version (German DVD)

41:04-41:12 / 42:14-42:26

The same game when these two are snarling at each other. The original version remains in the shot throughout, while the HD master has a side view in between.

No time difference

HD master (Nitro) Original version (German DVD)

42:10-42:16 / 43:27-43:34

After the two of them have spoken briefly and Craig has spurred them on to catch up, the HD version shows Mitch for the first time. In the original version, Craig turns around and starts rowing, this rest of the shot comes afterwards in the HD master. The next rowing shot is also different.

Another very short frontal shot deviates in the following montage as usual.
