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.

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: Some nice swimming und even underwater scenes of the two or three brothers. Unfortunately few and brief scenes near the beginning only. Sorry, I’m running out of good movies. Please make some suggestions!

14 or 15 yo Michael-James Wixted as David in beige or similar, striped swim shorts, his older film brother (Hart Bochner) in dark blue or green shorts. Not sure about the younger boy, Andrew (Brad Savage, pic below “Salem’s Lot”, “The Apple Dumpling Gang”) who’s sitting in a boat.

Also nice bedroom scenes (other blog, rating 7), will also soon be updated (dorm).

Quite interesting and handsome boys, but for the brief shorts scenes, rating 4-5 only.

Comment: Michael McGreevery (I think the older boy Arthur on the right in blue shorts) and Bill Mumy shirtless in swim shorts. Of course these 60s shorts are not really shiny.

I don’t remember the complete movie.

For shorts, rating 3-4 only. Movie maybe higher. I like Billy Mumy.

Comment: Some boys swimming. One boy shirtless in pink swim shorts, one in yellow, one in white or similar and some in black shorts. Maybe not all are shiny. Also skinny dipping scenes.

Also boys and a girl in sailor suits (other blog, rating 5). Not sure about the time setting due to the sailor suits. Should be after a war and childhood memories of the author. Maybe showing the 1940s and 1980s or the shorts are anachronistic.

English title: Holiday in Expectation of a Holiday, Russian title: Праздник ожидания праздника, 1984 novel by Fazil Iskander (1929-2016).

Some very interesting scenes, but rather few (good) shorts scenes.

Rating 4-5 for shorts, movie rating maybe 6-7.

Comment: Some young boys and I think also girls in different shorts, probably some are shiny like black and blue. Obiously also some boys shirtless, but in the background. And Thomas Aldwinckle (pic 2 from s1e3) and maybe others in shorts but I think not shiny (maybe shorts for PE). Often school shorts are not shiny in the UK (and Australia).

Pics 1+3 are from a movie-length clip on YouTube, probably a DVD compilation of season 1. Definitley before season 6 as there are other actors.

Great series. I don’t remember all episodes. Maybe some more good episodes/scenes. Unfortunately still not on DVD. I have to check more clips on YouTube.

For now rating 4-5 for shorts only. There’s a girl and I also found a boy in bib overalls, update soon on my other blog. Also on my bedroom blog, rating 7.

Comment: I almost forgot to post this other episode of “Auf die Plätze..”. Captured in Dec 2002, could also been the time of airing. Or recorded earlier in the late 90s.

Several boys and young teen boys (at least 20+, probably around 40) outside doing track and field, half of them in white (non-Adidas) shorts, the others in green Adidas shorts (with inner briefs). Green Addias shorts are rather rarely shown (in movies) and I think rarely worn in the 80s. Blue and red were much more common.  Not only the colors were preferred but probably also the (German) Soccer clubs wearing those. I think only one or two clubs wearing green in the early 80s (Werder Bremen and Borussia Mönchengladbach ?), see this list

/2016/12/20/list-3-colors-of-adidas-other-shorts-in-1980/

As announced, I only have some very short clips but I don’t like this one of older boys.

The previous post is much better (rating 7).

/2017/04/13/auf-die-platze/

I somewhere have a clip of handsome Bavarian boys, I think in blue Adidas shorts in a studio (rating ~7), but I have to search for it and I’m not sure if this is from this series as well. Coming soon.

Comment: Most often shown, a chubby bully boy in longer dark blue short. Not sure about the fabric. The white or grey lower parts more look like cotton.

Some very few other scenes. A younger boy in dark blue shorts, maybe shiny at 56 minutes (brief scene). And another, a bit older boy in dark blue longer shorts, but probably not or not that shiny. Maybe some more boys (or girls) in shorts, but I think not shiny and from a distance.

Some girls in shortalls and Sean Campbell in bib overalls (other blog rating 7).

Funny and quite good movie from Sullivan Entertainment. Handsome boy.

For shorts rating 3-4 only.

Comment: Marvin in dark blue shiny shorts, also in longer light grey, shiny bermudas or Basketball shorts. Maybe more shorts in other colors? Also wet and I think shirtless. He wears dental braces. Some other young local boys of Borneo, Malaysia shirtless in shiny shorts, also men.

Some good scenes of this family in the jungle. Sister and mother in shorts, but I think not shiny.

A funny scene when the Malaysians slaughter a pig for them as a welcome gift and they are shocked.

No entry on IMDb and not even on wunschliste / fernsehserien.de.

One German boy only. There are better movies/ series.

Rating 4-5.
