Comment: One boy (maybe Tyler Ross ?) in modern, longer shiny blue Basketball or similar shorts, also sitting.

And 3 girls in shortalls (soon on my other blog, rating ~4).

Not the best movie. Sorry. I’m running out of good movies. 1980s movies are limited and I’m currently also don’t have any swim shorts movies.

Rating ~3 for this.

Comment: Some boys in a locker room and probably playing Soccer (or Handball) before (I think PE). One in dark blue Adidas (Junior ?) one in medium blue shiny shorts, another one in black ones (maybe not shiny). One boy pulling down the shorts of one boy revealing that he wore at least 3 pairs of underwear (light grey retro shorts+2 mini briefs above). I don’t remember why.

Searching for something else (Alles Paletti (1985), coming soon), I found these 3 pics.

Currently, I can’t say much more. Digitized or recorded/aired in 2007 on sat1. Maybe earlier production. But I think not 80s as most boys wore longer, modern, colorful cotton shorts/bermudas including purple. One boy wearing a Nike Air shirt which can’t be in the early 80s. Can anybody help or identify the female (teacher)?

Could be a divorce drama. If it’s a series with a teacher, it might be found easily. But I fear it’s a TV movie. I captured the pics only almost 1 year ago, and obviously didn’t knew the title then and forgot to post them. I think captured from a brief clip from one of my DVDr or backup discs. I currently don’t have the time to check once more all of my discs or tapes.

A very similar scene is in Achterbahn (ep 33) (but that wasn’t aired on sat1).

I also uploaded a (descent) pic of Dallas.

Comment: At least one younger boy shirtless in longer, dark blue shorts with orange parts and 2 older teen boys in medium and dark blue swim shorts but mainly older teen boys and mainly in board shorts (also wet like in s3e12). Pics from s2e2.

I don’t know all episodes, so it’s possible, that I miss good scenes.

I found an indoor pool, but girl only (not in shorts) and other sports but long pants only.

Rating 3-f for now only. Based on a book series.

Comment: Boys and girls in longer, dark blue and dark red shiny shorts including main character Marny Kennedy as Taylor in s1e8. At least the blue shorts are from brand Admiral. Another episode is s1e10 (The Cross Country) in medium blue and black shorts, but I think not shiny.

Another great and funny Australian series. Although I don’t like Hector, but Taylor is nice. Also soon on my pigtails log, rating 7.

I haven’t checked all episodes. Maybe swim shorts as well?

For now rating 6-7.

Comment: One girl, maybe Natasha Phillips, in pink shorts (not sure if the fabric is shiny). The other girl in the light blue shorts might be Maia Mitchell, but her shorts aren’t shiny. Also other (teen) girls in at least dark blue and black shorts and also teen boys in shorts (including shirtless scenes like in ep 11) but I think not or not that shiny (I think mainly or only in colorful board shorts). Also muddy scenes at a beach in ep 4. Wet scenes (boy+girl, longer black shorts) in ep 15.

Pic from ep 15. Also a young blonde, pigtailed girl (Matilda Terbio) in tight shortalls (overalls blog, rating 4) and also purple shorts in ep 11 (similar like the pink ones).

I don’t know all episodes. Wrong cover image and description on IMDb. Prequel series to CastAway (2011) which also needs to be checked.

Rating 3-4 for now only. Also soon on my pigtails blog.

Comment: Soccer boys in longer yellow and dark blue, checkered shiny shorts in s1e16. Yellow shorts maybe not or not very shiny. I can’t see any logos. Also shirtless scenes and swimshorts in earlier episodes. I think black swim shorts (from a distance on a beach) and a boy in longer, white underwear (not shiny). I think also medium blue shorts but not or not that shiny.

I don’t remember the complete series and haven’t checked the later episodes, but obviously rather few (shiny) shorts scenes.

There are better series.

I think not officially on DVD, yet (DVDr sets are available).

For now, rating 4-5 only. Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~6.

Comment: Some boys and teen boys in shorts and bermudas, mainly white and black. Some shirtless. Most notable one younger blonde boy in dark blue or similar shorts (with white parts ?) Not sure about the fabric. Some looks quite shiny. Also girls acting, but probably not in shiny shorts?

English title: In the Mountains.

Nice coming-of-age movie but there are much better ones.

Few shorts scenes only.

So rating 2-3 only.

Update: Achterbahn (1992)

achterbahn-ep44achterbahn-ep28

Some more episodes. Pic 1 showing 2 boys in ep 44. One in medium blue shiny shorts with sweatpants underneath (what is very rare in Germany), the other one in dark blue (or black) shiny shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy boxing in light blue shiny shorts in ep 28.

At least one update coming soon (white Soccer).

I also have checked some more of It (2017). The yellow shorts aren’t shiny. Damn. I have uploaded a better pic of the red ones.
