Comment: At least one young boy underwater in red swim shorts, probably not shiny (board shorts).

Movie obviously not released yet. There’s just a teaser and the novel.

By searching for my still unknown movie on my sailor suit blog, I rechecked the much more famous, Oscar nominated 1997 movie Secrets of the Heart.

Rating 4-5 for now as shorts aren’t shiny. Maybe others?

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: 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: Some boys in swim shorts in different episodes. Mainly most wore speedos when swimming. Pic 1, one boy in larger, medium blue shiny swim shorts also sitting (also another one in nice yellow speedos), pic 2 one in wet yellow, green, red ones. I think also episodes about Soccer at least one in white shorts. One boy boxing in light blue shiny shorts in ep 28 and boys in light and medium blue shorts (one in sweatpants underneath), both pics coming soon.

Another swimming scene in ep 68 “Flachschwimmer” unlike almost all other episodes available on DVD. At least one teen boy in dark swim shorts. PE, Basketball and locker room scenes in ep 33 “Der Andere” at least one shirtless in medium blue shiny shorts.

Good shirtless swimming scenes and handsome boys in “Der Fünfzigmarkschein” and “Nie wider Ibiza” but I think either speedos or board shorts.

Great family series about friendships. I don’t know all episodes and have some partially on VHS. I have to check for the episode names of the ones pictured and also other episodes. But I remember rather few good shiny shorts scenes.

Rating 7-8 for now. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4.

Subtitle: “Filme über Freunde heute”. Although always used, the word “heute” doesn’t belong to the subtitle to me, but it’s obviusly the announcement (“today” showing) of the actual episode as separately shown at the intro at a different frame.



Update: Die Kinder vom Alstertal


I found a third, great swimming scene in s1e5.

Pictured are young Niklas in red/light blue/black swim shorts, Tobias in light blue ones and Sebastian in orange/black/grey swim shorts or maybe board shorts. Also nice rear view (wet) when going out of the lake. Tobias’ shorts obviously have inner nettings and he don’t wear anything else. Also girls in swimwear but I think not in shorts.

I don’t like at all Tobias. My favourite actor here is Sebastian.

Also an update on my bib overalls blog (rating 5)

Main entry (previously no pics at all but scenes are even better), rating 5 at

I think one younger boy sitting in modern, longer grey, maybe shiny shorts and he and older teen boys shirtless in board shorts. But very few and brief scenes only.

Also nice dorm and bunk bed scenes, soon on my other blog, rating ~7.

For shorts rating 3-4 only.

There are much better movies, also with scouts and camp plot.

Comment: Some older teen girls and teen boys mainly in short shorts playing Basketball. Pics from s1e1. Maybe most shorts are not or not that shiny. Not sure about the light green ones. One teen girl in shiny, longer, red Basketball shorts and of course teen boys in longer shiny Basketball shorts. I think also boys (shirtless) in board shorts in other episodes including 11 yo Paul Butcher.

Very good and funny family series. But I watch mainly for Dustin. Series is currently running on Germany’s Nick.

Also on my bedroom blog (bunk bed) rating 4 also showing some pics of Dustin.

For short rating 5 for now only.

Comment: One teen boy, I think Mikkel Bratt Silset (pic 1) sitting in colorful, long board shorts. Also some other boys at an indoor pool including one in oversized medium blue swim or board shorts. Another one in black. I think few and brief scenes near the beginning only and most from a distance.

So rating 4-5 only. Directed by Erik Richter Srand. English title: Sons.

Interesting plot, but there are much better movies. Movie rating also ~4 only.

Comment: At least Kyle Howard shirtless and wet in dark red board shorts. Also on his bed in underwear (white/colorful boxer shorts).

Unfortunately these swim shorts are not shiny, but I like this actor and scene when he’s coming out of the water. Great and funny movie. I have to watch it again to check out for maybe more scenes and other actors. But I don’t remember more.

Also on my bedroom blog, rating 6.

For these shorts, rating 6-7.
