Comparison between the TV broadcast on German TV station Nitro on 24.04.2019 (16:45 / international HD master) and the German DVD (featuring the original version) by Kinowelt (FSK 12)


- 4 differences
- Runtime difference: 4.6 seconds

 

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 1x18 (Snake Eyes) has a surprise in store for a change, because towards the end, both versions offer a completely exclusive scene. In the original version, Mitch and his new lover Amanda speak out again, in the HD master, Eddie and Cort instead rehearse on the beach with the crossbow.

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.

After the decision was made to take revenge on the casino gang, a completely alternative scene follows.

In the original version, there is another conversation between Mitch and Amanda. (translated verbatim from German)

There's a knock at the door and Mitch says, "Yes, who is it?"
Amanda: "Amanda."
Mitch gets up; "The door is open."
Amanda: "Hi."
Mitch says "Hi."
Amanda: "I left my briefcase. I can't get my paper due tomorrow without it."
Mitch says "Yeah, here it is. I'm sorry..."
Amanda: "I'm sorry..."
They both laugh, and Mitch goes, "Please forgive me for this morning."
Amanda: "I'm sorry about this morning."
Mitch: "Just so you know, I've been talking to Hobie about doing homework. He hasn't said a word to me since."
Amanda: "Oh..."
Mitch: "I feel like I've lost my two best friends today."
Amanda: "You can have them both back. Me first."
Mitch hugs them; "You first."


In the HD version, you see Eddie and Cort walking along the beach, the former holding a melon in his hand. This is successfully used to test a crossbow.

Eddie: "So where do you want him?"
Cort: "Well, on your head."
Eddie: "Very funny."
Cort prepares his crossbow: "No, never mind. I'm just checking to see if I still got it."
Eddie goes on, "Just tell me when."
Cort: "Now, stop, stop, stop. Right there. That's good."
Eddie puts the melon down, takes out a pencil and draws a face on it; "With a personal touch. Well, do you like it?"
Cort: "Nice."
Eddie comes back to him, "Well, then."
Cort: "Well... well, let's see."
Eddie: "Surprise. Craig agrees with the plan."
Cort: "Oh yeah."
Eddie: "No problem."
Cort shoots, the melon bursts.
Eddie: "Not bad."
Cort: "It'll be fun."
