Shiny might be light red, 70s style, purple (including 1 younger boy ~11 yo), light green (young boy), light blue, and maybe white and black. Some young girls in light grey shorts (maybe not shiny). One girl inside probably in shiny light red shorts.

Comment: At least two great scenes. Best at 1h00 (pics 1+3) At least one boy in dark blue, shiny Adidas shorts with yellow stripes and bottom border. Some more boys, including older teen boys but mainly not shiny or from a distance.

Another scene at 40 minutes. Mainly shown some older teen boys/young men. Light red shorts, tight, light green shorts, dark blue 70s style, medium blue, white (not shiny) and some more. Also some young boys here but briefly and from a distance (including light blue shorts.

By rechecking my older entries on my bib overalls blog, I came across this nice 80s movie. Also nice bedroom scenes, soon on my other blog, like an update on my overalls blog.

Rating 6-7. Needs to be rechecked later more carefully at slow speed.

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: Boys and teen boys in red and medium blue shiny shorts.

Thanks Fisty Flynn for suggesting this and pointing out that this was a real TV series. No entry on IMDb (but on BFI).

Most clips on YouTube showing boys around 15 yo and most clips have a very poor image quality. Pic 1 from a clip called Donnelly V Hendry. Pic 2 from Belt 3 Bout #1 showing younger boys.

According to New Scientists, there were 1100 boys aged 14-19. But obviously, there were also younger boys. I can’t say much more like how long the series was aired (should be 4 or 5 seasons) or # of episodes.

I don’t like much boxing.

Rating ~5-6 (mainly for the younger boys).

Comment: I knew it. Next to the swimming scenes (speedos and trunks) there’s also this Soccer (PE) scene in s3e4 with teen boys in long shorts in many different colors. Nick Julius Schuck (middle, behind another boy), both in medium blue shorts.

I think not all shorts are shiny or that shiny. Most likeley shiny are the green and red ones. Not sure about light grey. Black and most dark blue ones probably not shiny.

2 years later Nick Julius Schuck is around 15 and very thin but still handsome. I even forgot to watch the recent 2 episodes. The episodes getting again extremely touching. Now also on my bedroom blog, rating 3.

For this brief scene rating 4-5. Main entry, rating 6 at

Comment: Originally, I searched for a waterpark scene showing older Omri Katz and Joshua Harris in around season 12, 11 (or 10), but I only found this, earlier episode s7e4. I think Omri Katz in pic 1 and some other boys and men including Christopher Atkins in blue speedos. One younger boy in red 70s style shorts, also walking (rear view).

Does anybody know the later waterpark scene? According publicity pics, at least Joshua Harris in colorful board shorts, probably Omri in board shorts as well.

Main entry (Omri in purple shorts, not pictured, rating 10, TOP#1) at

Comment: Boys and girls in longer, dark blue and dark red shiny shorts including main character Marny Kennedy as Taylor in s1e8. At least the blue shorts are from brand Admiral. Another episode is s1e10 (The Cross Country) in medium blue and black shorts, but I think not shiny.

Another great and funny Australian series. Although I don’t like Hector, but Taylor is nice. Also soon on my pigtails log, rating 7.

I haven’t checked all episodes. Maybe swim shorts as well?

For now rating 6-7.

Comment: At least 3 boys at an outdoor pool, shirtless and wet in red, white and dark blue shiny shorts in song Vakantie in Italië. But rather very brief good scenes.

Also PE scenes, boys and girls in light blue and a boy in colorful shorts in “Bang voor de bal” but not shiny. Also Soccer scenes in song “Honden” but longer shorts and not shiny as well.

Also very good bib overalls scenes with farm plot (rating 7).

Some perfect songs, and handsome boys.

For the brief swim shorts scenes rating 6 only.

Main overview entry here, rating 8
