Comparison between the HD version and the original version (both included on the German Blu-ray by Filmjuwelen)
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 2x11 (If Looks Could Kill) is a curious and surprisingly pleasant case in the HD version. The original version has several clear censorship cuts, which have now been reversed in HD. The death of the man in the pool at the beginning is longer in several places with explicit close-ups. Moreover, there are two more cosmetic adjustments in the second half.
03:54-04:03 / 03:54
Interestingly enough, you can see the man here in the HD-master still agonizingly suffocating in two shots and Allison once more in between.
+ 8.3 sec
04:05-04:13 / 03:56
Only in the HD-Master does she appear here and another time you see the man suffering resp. reaching for his handcuffs at the ladder.
+ 8,5 sec
04:17-04:29 / 04:00
And again you see the man in the HD-Master still desperately reaching around and losing more and more of his strength.
+ 11.5 sec
04:41-04:48 / 04:12
Blurred from the perspective of the murdered man, Allison can be seen again and another shot of him under water.
+ 7.7 sec
04:56-05:00 / 04:19
Finally, a shot of the dead man.
+ 4.3 sec
18:54-18:57 / 18:12-18:15
Mitch and Allison kiss a little longer in the original version and it fades softly over to the pool. In the HD master, this next shot starts a little earlier.
No time difference
The song was exchanged exactly in this pool scene.
26:06-26:08 / 25:23-25:25
Here, too, a soft fade was used to create a follow-up shot starting earlier.
No time difference
Exchanged song during the assembly with Mitch and Allison on the yacht in minute 29/28.
