This is another classic that deserved an UPGRADE, and now it’s finally time!
We have a classic “female scuba diver gets trapped in net” scene 🙂

And here is the video:
Initially, I planned on releasing a 10-minute long cut with subtitles. But for some reason, the subtitles didn’t show up in the final file.
So I decided to put up the shorter peril cut as the main video.
You will find the longer video below (without the subtitles).
But back to the scene:
A classic, cliche “frogwoman clumsily dives into a net with very little air left” scenario.
The breathing sounds are pretty loud and done quite well, I am pretty sure they recorded them afterward and included them in the movie.
A pretty sexy result…in my opinion.
She was initially diving with a guy (which you can see in the longer cut) and they both screwed it up in my opinion. He got on the boat again without waiting for her… and she just stopped and decided to go diving on her own. And for some reason she didn’t have a knife… which could have been quite useful here 😉
Even she most likely would have lost it in this cliche scenario… while trying to escape.
Her scuba gear is ok, but I rather hate these old inflatable vests as they totally obscure the … view…
Here is the much longer version of the scene with before and after surface shots (not on my public Youtube channel):
In case you don’t speak Dutch … he basically blames her and tells her all the mistakes she made underwater. Nothing of big interest.
In the mid of next week, I will make a post about a very unusual scuba fight from the same TV show.
Sadly without women… but a very interesting scuba fight nonetheless.
…but don’t you worry, she won’t be sliced into parts, this isn’t from a horror movie 😉
I posted all the good female scuba scenes from seasons 1-9 of Baywatch in HD.
Seasons 10 and 11 were not available in HD for a long time….that has changed now, so it’s time to present the good female scuba scenes from these episodes as well!
This one is a rather famous one that I wanna post first, even there are interesting scuba scenes earlier in the season.

And here is the video:
Ok, this is so absurd that it is really funny! 🙂
A net cutting through a modern regulator hose like that???? Oh man! That is very……creative….to say at least 😉
It’s already pretty hard to cut such a hose with a scuba knife. But this net seems to be the sharpest net in history! A net right from hell, it would slice all fishes to pieces 😆
The lifeguards and the other diver behave quite strangely….
The two lifeguards aren’t well prepared. First, shouldn’t they have scuba masks stored on their jetskis? Would be useful! They dive down to her, can’t free her and one has to surface to get a knife from the scuba guy. Why isn’t he down there to help them? His scuba tank doesn’t seem to be empty, he could provide air for the rescue. Then they realize that they might need air and one surfaces to get 2 spare air tanks. Why didn’t they take those in the first dive? And the scuba guy had a scuba tank and a knife…why didn’t he use his knife to free her earlier?
But ok, realism and strange behavior aside….this is quite a nice scuba peril scene!
The camera zooms in relentlessly on the ….”well equipped”….. diver, she gets into peril and illustrates that very well with her ….moaning… sounds. 🙂
Also, it’s good to have a change to the classic “trapped in a net setting” where a diver which almost no air left gets stuck in it.
Here she is trapped, but seemingly has enough air left for a while. The scene only gets really perilous as her air hose gets sliced by that net from hell which puts her into immediate danger.
It’s unclear if she has a 2nd regulator, but maybe she couldn’t have reached it the way she is entangled in the net.
The sound of the escaping air and the sight of the cut air hose spewing bubbles…..is quite sexy!
Interesting that the scene on the surface wasn’t cut in another way…interesting that they let the frames in where the lifeguard gropes her right breast.
I know about this scene for quite a while but haven’t posted it here so far.
A nice guy asked if I would know it and now, I wanna make a post about it.
Here we have the two scuba scenes of the movie.
In the first one, a young couple dives around…each on their own(!), and soon the guy gets into trouble…
In the main scene at the end of the movie they are diving again, and this time the frogwomen gets into trouble….big trouble!

And here is the video:
Sorry, but that is actually the best picture quality available for this rare greek movie.
Well…..I would say….WOW! And not really a good wow…. 😆
They have a gorgeous woman in a solid wetsuit. She dives into a net. A good scenario!
But so many aspects here are really badly done….
First the music: Sounds like a madman on drugs playing some most annoying sounds on his electric keyboard. I get headaches from that…..
And there are so many logic plotholes I don’t know where to start!
Ok, why the happy couple is always diving each on their own….I don’t know….pretty reckless, but ok, not unlogical at least.
Two times she reaches for her knife more or less, why doesn’t she get it???? She isn’t so trapped that she couldn’t reach it.
I guess her tank is supposed to be empty at one point but she is exhaling all the time through her mouthpiece on regular basis. When is she supposed to be out of air?
Of course, it’s the usual theme: when a diver is trapped he/she has only a few % of air left…. oh man.
Why are they cutting SO often (in way too long scenes) to him setting on these rocks???? That interrupts way too often her dramatic scenes.
He decides that she may be in trouble so starts looking for her. Good idea! But why is he diving as slow as a 100-year-old grandma? The love of your life seems to be in trouble… man! She is diving alone and her tank must be pretty empty!!!! You should HURRY….a bit at least….
Often it seems like she isn’t really trapped in the net as it is floating pretty high above the ground. It looks like she even could reach the surface sometimes.
He finally finds her! And what does he do??? He starts yanking on the net! ARGGGGGGGGHHHHHH
Perhaps she needs air???? You could give her some!!!! You also have a knife! Use it, damn it!
All the time she is still conscious and kicking. Just before they reach the surface she doesn’t move anymore. Is he sharing his air with her? NOOOO, still he does nothing like that.
They reach the surface, she still has the regulator in her mouth, which would be very unusual for someone out of air….
But what then? Does he give her mouth to mouth? No, she pushes and pulls a little on her!!!?! Ok, I know that mouth to mouth rescue isn’t a very old technique. And there were older ones before that.
But good god, he moves so slowly! So very slowly …like she would be a puppet on a first aid exercise….no rush….she isn’t breathing…but take your time.
Then she is seemingly conscious for some seconds….but quickly dies afterward??????
And he is still very relaxed… maybe he is thinking: “what the hell, my beloved is dead now….well, then I can go home now and make dinner”.
WHAT???? Who comes up with all that madness?
I guess the screenwriter/director was as mad as the music composer.
Ok, I admit I haven’t seen the full movie as it is in greek language. But so much is going wrong in this final dive scene which could have been so much better!
*EDIT*Here are some background news I got from the nice guy who reminded me about this movie:
The translate of the title is “that summer”. She is scuba teacher but has cancer as the script says. Althought decided to dive with her ex husband. At the second dive she didn’t felt ok underwater because of her illness and finally died. For this reason her ex husband didn’t do her anything to save her.
Well, there you can see how important a background story can be to understand this weirdness better.
But still, I am convinced of many of the things I wrote above.
For you folks I edited the final scene to a much BETTER version …with an open ending (blog exclusive):
The title of the movie is already in the video…but here is the IMDB page:
Our frogwoman today explores the deep blue sea as suddenly she gets tangled up in a net…. What will happen to her? Has someone placed that net on purpose to catch or kill her? Can she rescue herself? You will see:
