In late December I made a post on this cool forum:
….and it’s about time that I post here about in the page as well!
I posted this on the forum on December 29:
Hopefully you know my post about an episode from S.O.S. Barracuda which includes something VERY, VERY, VERY RARE…..
http://frogwoman.org/female-scuba-diver … -barracuda
S.O.S. Barracuda is a german series consisting out of 8 movies made from 1997 to 2002.
During the summer of 2018 I heard that there was a rather fantastic scene (with some flaws) in one of the movies.
But I thought I would probably never see it. These movies weren’t shown since the early 2000’s in german TV and there are no DVD/Blu-ray releases.
Then I made a request for it on my blog.
I was very lucky to get videos files from a friendly guy who read my request about these movies.
I subscribed to an email-alert that I would get if these movies ever would be shown again here in german TV.
Since, as I said, the movies weren’t shown for over 15 years….I had very little hope that they would ever be shown again.
But yesterday I got such an email alert….. …I was quite shocked….in a good way
On January 23 a first movie of that show is shown on “RTL Passion” (german pay TV).
Oddly enough they show movie number 3…at first.
At my place where I have cable….I can’t get that channel, even I would want to.
I would love to get recordings of all 8 movies.
AS I understand only 2 or 3 have scuba content in it.
But I want all of them in a good quality.
Especially that one with the epic scuba drowning!!!!
Hopefully the channel will show all of them….
I will try to figure out if there is a way in which I could get these movies in nice quality files.
Has anyone experience in recording from a TV airing? In a way that you would have a quality file on the computer afterwards?
I have a digital recorder which I use to record movies all the time. But they are then on that recorder and can’t be moved to anywhere else.
I also have an older recorder with DVD drive, which I could use to get it to the computer….but as I said, I can’t get that channel so….both recorders are not an option in this case.
Perhaps getting it from a streaming site would be an option…
I hope someone here can help with advice!
Or perhaps even record these movies…
Another post from January 4th:
I found a legal option to view it with the streaming service “TV Now” here in germany.
Looks like I can access the channel and watch it live for 5 Euro a month.
The question now is how to record it. So far I found no way of recording it except simply filming it from the screen which wouldn’t be a good solution regarding image and audio quality. “JDownloader” and “Video Downloadhelper” doesn’t work with that site.
But I will investigate further.
Also another question is on how many of the 8 movies they will actually air…..
Update, January 12:
I was pretty concerned as I realised the channel wouldn’t air another movie of this series in the week after they show movie number 3 “Der Mädchenjäger” on January 23.
But luckily I read that they show movie number 4 “Der Hai von Mallorca” 2 weeks after that one on February 6. And from pictures I saw this movie certainly has scuba scenes. Hopefully with some frogwomen as well 😉
Movie number 5 is actually “Die Tränen der Kleopatra” from which I presented these epic scenes. So, hopefully it will be aired on February 13 or 20.
You can find the answers I got in the forum itself as I don’t want the made this post too long.
Well, I really hope that they will air all these 8 movies, especially the ones with female scuba content off course….
AND that I can record them in good quality…. or find someone who can do it if I can’t.
Will keep you updated!
