Rating:  8/10 ?
Rating: ********
Comment: Doug Ptolemy (pic 1) in tight white Adidas shorts (probably shiny ?) in episodes “Heroes” and “Television”, I think Alasdair Gillis in red shiny shorts (episode “Nature”) and probably some more, maybe including teen boys (mainly in the earlier episodes). Also other scenes like shirtless, in underwear, short white sailor suits and diapers (including older boys and girls).

Alaisdair also in white shorts (probably not shiny). In season 1 also another boy in red shiny shorts. Patrick Mills also in orange Basketball shorts. Shirtless scenes in swim shorts/board shorts of Doug (light green), others in blue (unknown episode, brief scenes). An older black boy in yellow (Basketball ?) shorts. Adam Reid in dark blue shorts (probably not shiny) in ep “Medicine”. Older boy sitting shirtless in a fake beach in red shorts ep “Sports”.

I don’t know all episodes and there are also some spin-offs. Aka YCDTOTV.

Whatever Turns You On (1979), rating 10 and others.

Also on my overalls blog, rating 7, the Sailor suits blog rating 8, the Western blog rating 5 and my Bedroom blog rating 10.

Obviously rather few and brief good scenes. So rating 8-9 only.

Available on different DVD sets, but obviously mainly in bad quality (DVDr). That’s another problem.
