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.

Rating: ****
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.

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.

Main entry, rating 9 at

Who in shorts 2:
Available on DVD: yes

Rating:  2/10 ?
Rating: **
Comment: Several young women and men shirtless in swimwear near the beginning (at 7 minutes) at an outdoor pool scene including a lady and I think a man in turqouise shorts (pic 2), also another man in light blue shorts. Some young men sitting in and at at a hot tub shirtless in red shorts at 17 minutes (pic 1). A beach scene at 31 minutes (ladies in black and light blue shorts (pic 3), men in green, light blue, colorful and I think pink shorts). One lady in tight yellow white stripes shorts and bikini bra at 41 minutes. Maybe some more. Also men in underwear including tighty whiteys and other swim wear and jeans shorts.

I only have checked it partly and haven’t noticed any young kids. Most scenes appear to be very short and either from a distance or very close up.

Parts 3-4 (1992, 1994) are probably even worse. Best is part 1 (1984) rating 3



Update: The Adventures of Skippy


I now have checked (almost) all episodes and found another great episode of boys running, wearing track shorts (looking like swim shorts) pic 1 in s1e20. White, black, light blue and colorful (purple, yellow black striped). Almost as good as the previous post.

Some shirtless in swim shorts and/or board shorts in the long episode “Skippy The Movie” (unknown episode #, obviously a special or pilot). One boy in light blue swim shorts and at least one older teen boy in black shorts (rear views only). Probably some more. Also some shirtless and wet like 10 yo main character Simon James as mentioned in s1e22.

Main entry (Soccer) still rating “only” 9 at

Comment: Some Soccer boys in shiny orange shorts with white parts, the home team in dark blue, probably not shiny shorts (also sitting and at least the main character shirtless),  a team in yellow shiny shorts, other team in black or dark blue shorts, some in other shorts including red and some more but mainly not shiny.

Also black swim shorts or board shorts (wet) and lifguard (men) in red shorts. Also lifesaver boys in speedos and caps (in s1e22). All pics from s1e26. A girl in yellow shorts but probably not shiny. Probably also women. I haven’t checked all episodes. Probably some more shorts scenes.

After finding “Secret Valley”, I also checked some more Australian series and so found this. I used to watched this on TV. Also a nice bunk bed (brother+sister) and some others, soon on my bedroom blog, rating 7. And Cowboy / ranch scenes.

I like orange shorts. Some handsome actors. Yellow isn’t bad either. Rating 9-10 for now.

The 1967 series is also very good, but no shiny shorts. Rating 6 on my bedroom blog.

Update: I now have checked (almost) all episode. Some more, very good scenes (track shorts, swim shorts), new tags: white, blue. Still rating 9.

Comment: Some older teen boys including 18 or 19 yo Ned Napier as 14 or 15 yo Alex in (shiny ?) red track shorts in yesterday’s ep 5 (one teen boy wearing black tights or sweat pants underneath), also playing Soccer at least one in white shorts and one in medium blue (pic from the intro). Also teen boys and girls mainly in board shorts or similar modern swimwear in ep 7, some shirtless.

Typical modern series. Teens are very old. But I don’t know all episodes.

So rating 2-3 for now.
