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.

Rating: *****
Comment: Some kids at and in a lake shirtless in swimwear near the beginning. Most notable this handsome blonde boy in mainly dark blue swim shorts (probably not or not that shiny). One other, maybe younger boy sitting far in the background in medium blue (shiny ?) shorts, one or two others in light blue and other blue (board) shorts including an older teen boy.

Has been aired on Easter. The first half is quite good but later it’s very boring. Also on my pigtails blog (rating 6) and on my bedroom blog (rating 3).

For swim shorts rating 5-6. Unfortunately rather few (good) scenes. Several more kids, but mostly from a distance. Also girls but none or no notable in shorts.

Comment: 12 or 13 yo Matthew Lawrence shirtless in black swim shorts. Also some others, mainly or only men.

On Easter on TV. Of course, I’ve seen this movie several time before, but I only remember this brief pool scene and don’t know if he’s also outside the water in these swim shorts.

Great movie, very handsome actor.

For the brief scene rating 5-6 for now only. Please also note my previous entry.

I wish all my readers a Happy Easter!

Update: Now completetly seen again. Matthew Lawrence only in the pool and no notable others. Pierce Brosnan in short, black swim shorts.

Update: All Inclusive – Mit Kind und Koffer zur neuen Liebe


The later episodes aren’t as good as episode 3. Some good, but very brief scenes in yesterday’s final episode 6 including light blue, neon green and yellow shorts. Some more board shorts are shown including dark and medium blue, dark green, yellow and some colorful.

Very interesting is a sitting scene of 13 yo boy Luca in pic 3. Most other boys are younger. Mainly the grown-ups are shown.

A bit touching at the end (some boys crying). I still haven’t checked ep 1+2.

Rating around 6 for this episode.
