Thanks to Gaston for this recommendation he made a while back!
I edited this video in a way that we basically have two scenes in it. In the first Lee Majors (aka Steve Austin in this one) tries some new underwater breathing device as two bad frogmen attack him!
In the 2nd scene a frogwoman uses the same device and is trapped in a cage so he needs to rescue her…

And here is the video:
Well, the fight scene is pretty nice even if there are no scuba lady’s involved.
The second scene….well, as mostly it could have been better. The lock a frogwoman in a cage with a breathing device that only works with Lee Majors.
But instead showing her…how she doesn’t get any air and starts to panic…they show the fight on the surface. And even as Majors is underwater we didn’t get one good shot on Elke Sommer and her faulty breathing device…..
On the good site is her in that wetsuit. She looks really good in it.
And her lying on her back in that wetsuit….that’s my favorite part 😉
It’s a pretty odd plane of the evil guy…let’s push her higher…so that her air hoses might rip….
I don’t know if that would even work…but …..THANKS to the screen writer who thought about that way 🙂
I would say he could have used the cutting robo-hands to attack her…ok, maybe his range was to short for that. I think movement is very limited in that thing.
The only two things I would actually change:
The “suits” of Bond and Havelock are pretty unsexy. It looks like they had no real dive suits and took some rain clothes that Q found in the basement somewhere.
Real wetsuits would have been much better (for me).
If you look carefully at the closeup-shots…you might notice that the actress isn’t actually underwater! The problem was that Carole Bouguet couldn’t dive because of some medical issues. I guess she couldn’t make the pressure compensation because of it. So they used some tricks that it would look like she actually is underwater.
And I edited a very short video that focuses on her. In some ….sexy closeups:
I recently discovered some pictures of a german TV series called “S.O.S. Barracuda” and that showed something VERY unique to me. I had that show on my radar for some time, but these pictures motivate me now to the highest level….
You may have noticed that I love scenes where female scuba divers get …into trouble. 😉
An “Air runs out-scenario” is interesting and a scuba fight is even more interesting. What I really love are scenes when the air hose gets cut and the air streams out the severed hose. Such a scenario is very rare… I know quite a lot of the action scuba scenes from movies and TV and I know only close to 10 scenes where a female diver is attacked and her air hose gets cut.
What all these scenes have in common: The female diver survives the attack…every single time. Which is kind of odd, since there are some scenes where female divers are actually drowned by others. But in all these scenes the regulator gets pulled out (or the air valve gets closed).
So, in these pictures of S.O.S. Barracuda I found proof for a scenario I never witnessed before:
A drowned female diver WITH a cut air hose!!!!
Here are the pictures:

I don’t know about the order of these pictures, but WOW…… promising as hell!!!
And I don’t know how good the fight scene actually is, but well…. I WANT to SEE IT….I MUST SEE IT! I WILL SEE IT!
(…..insane mumbling continues….)
That series consists of 8 movies shot from 1997-2002 for german TV channel RTL. There are certain aspects that makes it VERY hard to get that series:
– It was made for TV, was shown the last time in 2002! It was never shown on TV for the last 16 years…
– There are no DVDs of the show.
– Only very few people seem to know that show…only 13(!) rates on IMDB, which is next to nothing
– I wanted to ask RTL for it…but it seems that RTL won’t give out material of “fiction”, you can only get recordings from stupid TV shows like “Let’s dance” from them…
– I do have some good sources for old movies and TV stuff, but….. no luck as well
– I don’t know why the fuck I didn’t knew about these movies back then, could have recorded them….but somehow they slipped my attention
So folks, I ask you! Do you have the scuba scenes from that series? Or even better….the whole thing?
Or do you have more information on that series?
Please leave your comments below!
And of course, you will be rewarded for info that leads to me getting that series! Some kind of swap deal (movies, TV episodes) and/or free months for the VIP club.
Most of you folks have read that my old Youtube channel was killed in january. The old youtube channel had over 5.000 subscribers and was built for both the maskripper and this blog. I don’t know exactly when I founded that channel, but I guess it was back in 2006. So it took 12 years for that channel to get so many subscribers.
Recently the youtube channel for frogwoman did pass the 500 subscribers mark. And that in just 3 months (over 200 new ones in the last month). Now I wanna reach the 1.000 subscribers.
And to reach that goal quickly I wanna invite you for a little game!
Many of you know this famous scene from Eye of the storm:
And there is another epic scuba scene from the same TV show. Don’t wanna spoil too much, but our scuba girl and the sneaky frogman meet again in an underwater cave 😉
And that video seems to be pretty rare (still didn’t got my hands on the whole TV show).
If the youtube channel for frogwoman reaches the 1.000 subscribers by May 30, I will release that video on youtube.
That means around 440 new subscribers in around 40 days. That is far from impossible! With the current growth it would be around 850 (in total) by then.
So, if you wanna see it…feel welcome to spread the word! And if you haven’t subscribed already….you know what to do next 😉
…but it has a pretty long nice scuba scene! If you are able to watch the whole movie from which I took the following clip, you have my respect 😉
That movie has it all: A moronic story, really bad acting, bad lightning and CGI effects right from hell. But if you managed to stay alive and awake pretty much till the end of this…”movie”….there is a long scene (even in my edit 11 minutes), where a woman changes into a wetsuit, puts on scuba gear and is trapped later on…
One my earlier posts had this (pretty famous) scene:
A sexy female scuba diver goes on a dive. Quickly she runs out of air (she got a near empty bottle) and tries to activate the reserve. But…someone sabotaged it 😉
Recently I found out that they released a DVD of that movie some weeks ago. Of course I bought it and it is indeed a big improvement over the old VHS-rip. I made this first video as a big quality upgrade for you to enjoy!
