–Comment: Nick Julius Schuck as comatose Hugo (the Indispensable One and narrator) sometimes in dark blue swim shorts, mainly in season 1 and mostly shirtless and sitting. Some few other older teen boys/young men, mainly in board shorts. All of them shirtless swimming I think at the final episode of season 2. Most notable Ivo as Toni in yellow short shorts. Schuck in black board shorts. I think previously also in orange shorts. Most or all shorts are not or not very shiny.
Very good series, very handsome actor, some good scenes, good music and great plot. Thanks Albert Espinosa! The series is extremely touching and tearjerking. Maybe they should give a warning.
I think no notable shorts scenes in season 2. And he’s getting thinner and thinner and of course older.
Obviouly no swimming scenes in the US version (different plot) but in the Italian and original Catalan series Polseres vermelles. Not really shiny as well (main character in medium blue swim shorts), others in board shorts. But the German version is more of interest.
Schuck also appeared in the series Sturmfrei (2011). Soccer scenes there. Coming soon.
Rating 5-6 only. Rather few good scenes and shorts are long and not really shiny.
Update: Soccer scenes in s3e4. More swimming scenes but not of Schuck and speedos and trunks only.
