Comment:
Some boys and teen boys in different, tight shorts including white, black and blue. Not sure about the fabric. Probably not or not that shiny. Looks like typical Rugby clothes. Pic from s2e9.

Also older teen boys or young men in light blue, yellow, dark blue, black and white shorts in s2e20. Maybe others in shorts in other episodes?

I don’t know all episodes. Sorry, I’m running out of good movies.

Rating 4 for now only.

Also on my Western blog (rating 4).

Comment:
A shirtless boy standing and sitting in light blue shorts. Pic from the trailer. Also other boys in shorts including dark blue, green and white with stripes. And men also in swim shorts with a belt. One boy in shorts with H-style suspenders.

The setting looks modern, but it’s obviously in 1944 as there are also other people in historical swimwear shown. So most likely not of shiny fabric but cotton. (Sorry, I’ve seen that too late).

But the movie looks still quite interesting. But I haven’t seen it completely, yet.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Original title: Đavolji raj – Ljeto bijelih ruža. English title: That Summer of White Roses.

Comment: As announced, this earlier Langnese commercial. First, some older teen boys, maybe playing Basketball in different shorts, including dark blue, red and yellow.

A young lady cycling in tight shiny dark blue shorts (rear view) and at least some men jogging in 70s style red shorts. Maybe some more persons?

Probably most straight guys like the cycling lady. Not bad, but also very brief scene. The other boys or young men are less of interest.

The 1985 commercial (rating 8) is much better, including the song.

Rating 4 for this one. There are some more Lagnese, also later commercials, but I haven’t checked those.

Comment: Some older teen boys and teen girls at PE in medium blue shorts (one climbing up a rope with longer underwear underneath). Also teen boys in red and yellow shorts, I think playing Basketball.

There are better movies. Actors are quite old.

And I think rather few good scenes. Filmed in 1987. Part 1 in Germany was Slaughter High.

So, rating 4 for now only.

Comment: Some few teen boys and girls including Zoey in purple track shorts. One teen girl in shorter ones. Unfortunately not Dustin.

Has been aired 2 days ago. Purple is my favourite color (for modern shorts, next to light blue) and dark blue and yellow for 70s style shorts.

Few and brief scenes.

So rating 4-5 only for this episode.

Main entry, currently rating 5 (for season 1), series still running

Comment: Some Soccer boys in longer light blue and red shorts. Goalkeeper (main character) in black. Most or all wearing long black tights underneath. (Tagging as sweat pants). I almost forgot this movie.

I haven’t seen the complete movie, but obviously only this brief scene at the beginning only.

Available on the ARD mediathek.

Some boys are handsome.

Rating 4 only, due to the brief scene.

Comment: As announced on my bib overalls blog (f/m, but mainly girls and teen girls, currently rating 6), there are some few boys and girls in (shiny) shorts, too.

At least a boy, I think handicapped, in oversized pink shorts in s3e24, a boy in dark blue shorts in s2e20, 2 white stripes. And a girl in black or similar shorts in s3e37.

Some older teen girls playing Basketball in  red shorts but probably not shiny (s1e6).

For now, rating 4-5 only due to the few and brief scenes.

They sometimes wore costumes in the studio, also on my western blog, rating 5.
