achterbahn-ep44achterbahn-ep28

Some more episodes. Pic 1 showing 2 boys in ep 44. One in medium blue shiny shorts with sweatpants underneath (what is very rare in Germany), the other one in dark blue (or black) shiny shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy boxing in light blue shiny shorts in ep 28.

At least one update coming soon (white Soccer).

I also have checked some more of It (2017). The yellow shorts aren’t shiny. Damn. I have uploaded a better pic of the red ones.

Comment: Some boys in swim shorts in different episodes. Mainly most wore speedos when swimming. Pic 1, one boy in larger, medium blue shiny swim shorts also sitting (also another one in nice yellow speedos), pic 2 one in wet yellow, green, red ones. I think also episodes about Soccer at least one in white shorts. One boy boxing in light blue shiny shorts in ep 28 and boys in light and medium blue shorts (one in sweatpants underneath), both pics coming soon.

Another swimming scene in ep 68 “Flachschwimmer” unlike almost all other episodes available on DVD. At least one teen boy in dark swim shorts. PE, Basketball and locker room scenes in ep 33 “Der Andere” at least one shirtless in medium blue shiny shorts.

Good shirtless swimming scenes and handsome boys in “Der Fünfzigmarkschein” and “Nie wider Ibiza” but I think either speedos or board shorts.

Great family series about friendships. I don’t know all episodes and have some partially on VHS. I have to check for the episode names of the ones pictured and also other episodes. But I remember rather few good shiny shorts scenes.

Rating 7-8 for now. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4.

Subtitle: “Filme über Freunde heute”. Although always used, the word “heute” doesn’t belong to the subtitle to me, but it’s obviusly the announcement (“today” showing) of the actual episode as separately shown at the intro at a different frame.

Comment: Some older “teens” or more likely young men and women in different, mainly 70s style shiny shorts including yellow, white, black, turqouise, medium and dark blue. Also sitting scenes (yellow shirtless) and also at least 2 men with sweatpants underneath (lying on the floor).

I found this by coincidence but haven’t seen the complete movie.

Typical movie of it’s time. Teens are quite old. Mainly 20s and 30s. Starring 33 yo Mauro Di Franceso and 19 yo Isabella Ferrari.

Rating 2-3 only.

Comment:
One older teen boy or young man in shiny, dark blue or (almost) black Adidas short with red stripes. Rounded boarders and not splitted. Were these for Handball or even Volleyball (and mainly for females) ?

Also a young men in shorts and light grey sweatpants underneath. And also 5 yo Matthew Lawrence and a 6 yo girl in bib overalls (other blog, rating 4).

Nice shorts, but the guy is quite old.

So rating 3 only. 2 more Afterschool Specials at this post

Update 4: Meatballs

meatballs-u3emeatballs-u3c

As announced, another, final update of Meatballs. I have checked most of the important scenes more carefully and almost all (Adidas) shorts turned out to be not shiny but of cotton fabric, including the green ones.

I just found an interesting scene at 12 minutes (pic 1) with the young boys. There’s one boy in medium blue, shiny shorts with 4 stripes, also lying on the bed. Another boy in (non-shiny) dark blue Adidas shorts.

Pic 2 showing a boy in 70s style red shorts (after 36 minutes) at the parent’s day being embraced.

Pic 3 at 1h21 showing a girl in white (shiny) Adidas and another girl in dark blue shiny 70s shorts. The man, I already had.

Pic 4 showing older teen boys/young men, one in white 70s shorts, one in medium blue sitting, one in orange shorts with red sweat pants underneath and an older teen girl in tight, white shorts.

Unpictured: Another young man in sweat pants underneath at the wrestling scene at 1h11. And another boy in red shorts at 1h21 (rear view, from a distance) next many others. I think, there’s one young boy sitting in black shorts (but from a distance) and maybe also dark yellow shorts (not shiny). So almost all colors, except pink and purple. Not sure about grey ones.

I think, I have to recheck the movie again later at slow speed, especially the audience. Most and best scenes near the end at the different competitions. Main overview entry, rating 8 at

Update 2: Meatballs

meatballs-at36meatballs-at1h21

I now have completely rechecked my DVD. There are much more (shiny) shorts scenes including young women. But mostly young men/ older teen boys. Most colors are red and white. I don’t want too much pics in a single post and will make at least one more update later.

Some very good Adidas shorts (including women), but some aren’t shiny. Also other shorts including jeans shorts. Also few boys in speedos. I think no board shorts.

Pic 1 showing my favourite scene of Rudy at 36 minutes in shiny white 70s style shorts with red boarders. More scenes at the very end (pic 2, a bit wet). He mainly wore jeans shorts.

Pic 2 at 1h21 also showing a boy in red shiny Adidas shorts (with inner briefs) and an older boy in rare, orange Adidas (Handball ?) shorts with dark blue stripes. Brief scene. Also a shirtless older teen boy in dark green Adidas shorts, but probably not shiny.

Pic 3 at 1h17 showing next to 2 older kids in red shorts (is the right one a girl ?) also 2 boys on the left in white and blue shorts. Another spectators also there, dark blue shorts, probably not shiny, another one in red and I think green.

Pic 4 at 17 minutes showing a boy in white shorts (good scenes walking downstairs) and another one on the left in dark blue shorts.

One older teen boy in beige shorts at 1h04 (close up). One older guy wearing sweat pants underneath orange shorts. Also sitting scenes of boys (distance).

As said more pics, including women later. I also found another boy and girl in bib overalls (see my other blog, rating 3).

Notable scenes:

4 minutes, 10, 12, 17, 28, 29, 36, 45, 1h03, 1h04, 1h18, 1h21.

Main entry, still rating 8 (but rather 7-8) at

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: Robert Rusler, around 19 yo shirtless in dark green, I think shiny shorts (as nightwear), also earlier at least 2 young men in red shorts, one with grey sweat pants underneath, one in black shorts, some others in white shorts and a lady in light grey shorts (maybe most are not shiny). There’s also an outdoor pool scene at night, but again most or all shorts aren’t shiny.

Great movie (series). As a young adult, I liked the scene with the green shorts (and Freddy’s claw through the body and door) and the shower scene, but nowadays I prefer younger actors.

So rating 5-6 only. I have to recheck also the other parts.

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.

Comment: First, most notable and mostly shown: a very young girl in shiny, red Adidas shorts (with inner briefs) but sweatpants/tights underneath. Also cycling. Some young Soccer boys and girls in different shiny shorts including, red, black, white and blue (non-Adidas) shorts. One boy and one girl in longer black Adidas shorts. One girl in medium blue Adidas shorts with yellow stripes.

Also young girls in bib overalls and shortalls (soon on my other blog, rating 2).

Shiny shorts in most episodes. Pic 1 from ep 2, pics 2+3 from ep/clip 6.

I have seen this series some years ago on TV, but I don’t like it. The kids are very young. Typical Scandinavian series.

Rating 3-4 only.
