Comment: Shad Moss aka Lil Bow Wow in white and orange Basketball shorts. Also men at least in white, orange and grey shorts. But rather few scenes.

Typical Basketball shorts/scenes. Although I like orange and grey shorts.

I don’t like Lil Bow Wow, so rating 2-3 only.

Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~3 as well.

Comment: At least 2 or 3 boys in swim shorts in song “Zwemziek”. Unfortunately only briefly and partly shown in the background. Most boys wore speedos. Like in other episodes about swimming like in ep 6.

So rating 4-5 only for this episode.

My favourite song of this year is Ik ben toch zeker Sinterklaas niet.

Comment: At least this teen girl, maybe Victoria Emmons in black or similar shiny shorts. Also cycling.

I found this by coincidence. Not sure if anybody of my readers is interested in girls.

Quite interesting movie and shorts. But there are much better ones.

Rating 3 for now only.

Update 2: You Can’t Do That on Television

ycdtotv-medicineycdtotv-stephanie2

Some more episodes of this great comedy series. As said, some episodes are currently hard or not to find and most have poor quality.

Pic 1 from ep Medicine (1983) showing a boy, maybe Alasdair in dark blue 70s shorts, also sitting in class (side view). Pic 2 from an unknown episode (YouTube clip called ycdt stephanie 2) obviously redhaired Christian Tessier in red shorts. Also others in shorts but not shiny.

Pic 3 from clip “kid outsmarts teacher” showing a boy sitting probably in green shorts. I haven’t found better scenes of that. Pic 4 probably showing Alasdair in red and Doug in white shorts in ep 57 Courage (1984).

I also found red shorts in ep Drugs (1981) maybe not shiny, dark blue and white shorts in Nature (probably not shiny), white and red shorts in Fitness. Boy in white cycling, others sitting. Alasdair in white shorts in Relatives (are these shiny ?)

Thanks Doug for finding the following

Season 5. Episode 12. (Ambition ?) Ben Schreiner sitting with Lisa, Ben dancing in white shorts.
Season 5. Episode 13 (Clubs ?). Ben in black, standing with Christine & Les, standing golfing, sitting with christine and with all the cast, in white, at the end of the show.
Season 6. Episode 4. (Relatives, 1985 ?) Alasdair Gillis in white sitting with Les on the set and again with Les (playing a doctor) sitting at his desk.

Pics of Ambition and Relatives can be found on the barthsburgery site.

Rating:  4/10 *
Rating: ****
Comment: As announced, now the first Jaws movie. Most or all swim shorts aren’t shiny due to the early 1975 year. When wet they often look shiny. Especially the boy in the black/blue shorts on the left. Interesting also the olive/colorful shorts and the tight red ones (Chris Rebello).

I have to recheck this movie more carefully the next broadcasting.

Many supporting actors but mainly grown-ups and speedos. And most scenes fast/brief and from a distance.

Great movie, but for the shorts rating 3-4 for now only.

Comment: Great movie. I only have checked it at high speed. Most notable a boy in medium blue, probably shiny shorts (also shirtless) and also wet, one in black shorts (not sure if shiny) and one kid in yellow shorts in the scene of pic 1 but maybe not shiny and very briefly shown.

Obviously rather few scenes. Most others wore speedo or non-shiny shorts, jeans shorts and the like.

In the first movie there are also handsome boys in swim shorts but probably none are shiny in 1975. I think I will make an entry as well.

For the few and brief scenes rating 4 for the swim shorts, much more for the movie itself.

Comment: Several young men and also some young boys in shiny shorts. A young man in white Adidas shorts with dark blue stripes. One other man in yellow shorts, also interesting a man in dark green or black shorts (pic 2 on the far right with 2 short horizontal stripes). And a man in dark blue 70s style shorts with red boarders.

Young boys at least in black, dark green and light blue shorts. Maybe not all shorts are shiny.

I’m currently rechecking older entries of my bib overalls blog. (Rating 3)

I don’t remember the complete movie and have to recheck it, especially for teens and women. The earlier Jaws parts are definitely much better (coming later) but don’t have 80s shorts.

So rating 4-5 for now only.
