Comment: I noticed 2 boys shirtless at a beach in shiny (?) shorts. One in white and another one in red. Red shorts unpictured, red pictures are trunks. Also other boys in speedos and trunks.

Not sure about the time setting. Could be the 1950s, but at least the white shorts appear shiny and 70s style.

1955 novel by William Mayne. I assume very few shorts scenes. The plot is about a boys’ choir.

Also soon on my bedroom blog (bunk beds, rating ~7).

For shorts, rating 4 only. I think not officially on DVD.

Comment: At least some older teen girls and I think teen boys in track shorts in ep 7801 (2018), pictured and I also found shirtless older teen boys/young men in I think non-shiny board-shorts and teen girls in non-shiny shorts at an outdoor pool in a 1985 episode (YouTube clip titled Scott Robinson & Kim Taylor | Neighbors [1985]). Maybe some younger kids in the background?

I don’t know all episodes, almost 8000. Maybe there are more episodes of interest.

Rating 2-3 for now.

Sorry, I’m running out of good movies/series.

Who in shorts: men, women

Available on DVD: yes

Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Mainly some shirtless men or older teen boys and also women in different shorts and swimwear on a beach. Hundreds of supporting actors, I think younger boys as well (like in medium blue at 16 minutes). But most very briefly or from a distance.

Shorts in almost all colors, at least black, white, medium blue, light yellow (f,m), dark green (m) and red (f, m ?), I think also purple (woman) and grey or similar. Some shorts are not shiny but most. Scene pictured at 10 and 40 minutes. Best scenes at around 16 (and 10) minutes. Also women undressing her shorts (white, bikini underneath). Wet scenes in the sea. I think Adidas (f,m) at 10.

I’ve checked it some time ago and don’t remember much. Needs to be rechecked more carefully at slow speed.

Typical movie. I assume few (good) scenes. 2 longer scenes on the beach. Later a pool scene but probably not of interest.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

I’ve added the tab “Brands” on top after finder a new Danish brand in Gummi-Tarzan.

Comment: Most notable Stefanie Powers in tight, dark blue shorts with 3 white stripes (but not Adidas), also some young men later shirtless in different shorts at the sea and at a pool including short black shorts, red, white and longer white shorts. Most scenes of the men are very brief and/or in the background. Both pics from s3e10 (1984). A better pic on IMDb.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Stefanie Powers) rating 3 as well.

Maybe more scenes and other actors in other episodes? I didn’t like much this series and don’t have the time to check all episodes.

For now, rating 3 only.

Comment: Adriana Pantaleo in light red (or orange) swim shorts, also a man in medium blue or grey ones. Brief scenes in yesterday’s final episode 14 (s2e6a).

Next to the earlier Soccer scenes, finally another good one. (I might miss some scenes in earlier episodes as I missed some).

Nice pool scenes and leg exercises at 15 minutes. Also 2 handsome, blonde boys (at 11 minutes in the hospital but not in shorts).

Comment: 3 boys shirtless and wet in different shorts. Most notably one younger boy in medium blue Adidas shorts with yellow stripes (and inner briefs). One older boy in longer black shorts and the other boy in tight, dark blue (?) shorts. 2 girls, but not in shorts.

Quite interesting but rather few good scenes, also sitting and also coming out of the water. Very briefly and also dark lit back lit scenes.

Rating 5-6.

Comment: Some older teen boys playing Soccer in black shorts. Also shirtless swimming scenes but maybe none of interest? I think black board shorts.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet. Pic from the trailer.

Set in the UK.

Rating 3 for now only. I assume rather few good scenes. Main character is a 14 yo teen girl.

Update 2: Cebollitas

cebollitas263-s2cebollitas251-scebollitas263fede-l-s

Due to a suggestion on my bib overalls blog, I have rechecked some few episodes in the range 249-266. Next to the usual Soccer shorts (mainly medium blue and white from brand Umro), there are also some interesting swim shorts and some more pics of plain white, a bit transparent shorts.

Pic 1+3 from ep 263, nice sitting scenes of several boys (on the right Fede), pic 3 nice warming-up exercise with 2 (Fede on left) at least 2 other pairs.

Pic 2 a nice pool scene in ep 251. Sitting scenes including yellow and red shorts. One handsome boy in dark blue or similar shorts. However, most shorts more look like underwear and aren’t shiny. Fede on the right. One chubby boy standing.

Pic 4 showing Fede on front during a Soccer match in ep 260 (also frontal view).

Pic 5 a beach scene with again yellow but another boy and 2 in red shorts, mainly board shorts. Fede in medium blue shorts but not shiny here. Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog.Rating 9-10 (I prefer the Umro shorts)

Main overview entry here, rating up to 10

Comment: At least 2 young men shirtless in yellow and red shorts, look shiny. Also a man in light orange shorts and another man sitting in green ones but probably not shiny. Also 70s trunks and speedos.

Not sure about the brand, splitted and tight, almost look like Adidas.

Interesting shorts, but rather few good scenes and I prefer younger actors.

So rating 3 only.

Comment: Christian and Jospeph Cousins shirtless and wet in longer swim shorts or board shorts at 1h07. Brief scene also coming out of the water.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, man, brief scenes, rating 2).

Unfortunately only a brief scene but not bad.

So rating 5-6.
