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: Some older teen girls and teen boys mainly in short shorts playing Basketball. Pics from s1e1. Maybe most shorts are not or not that shiny. Not sure about the light green ones. One teen girl in shiny, longer, red Basketball shorts and of course teen boys in longer shiny Basketball shorts. I think also boys (shirtless) in board shorts in other episodes including 11 yo Paul Butcher.

Very good and funny family series. But I watch mainly for Dustin. Series is currently running on Germany’s Nick.

Also on my bedroom blog (bunk bed) rating 4 also showing some pics of Dustin.

For short rating 5 for now only.

Rating:  7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: Some boys and also men, women and I think girls in shiny shorts. Best scene at 48 minutes (pic 1 showing boys walking in grey, medium blue (70s style) and dark blue shorts. Also other shorts here like yellow, red, white, black, grey and some more but not shiny, maybe the black and white ones.)

Pic 2 showing a woman in tight red shorts at 1h09.

Pic 3 at 1h05 showing a barefooted boy in light green shorts. Not shown, but in this scene in the background is a shirtless, young boy in yellow shorts. Also some more older teen boys or men shirtless.

As annonced this interesting 80s movie.

Also other scenes of interest like boys in Baseball clothes (also sitting) and a young lady with very long pigtails (pic 1 on front, soon on my other blog, rating 5).

Rating 7. Great movie, but unfortunately rather few and brief perfect scenes. Needs to be rechecked at slow speed.

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: Another Skateboard movie. At least some older teen boys and teen girls in shiny or almost shiny shorts, some in swimwear. Some men also shirtless. Younger boys mainly or only in longer cotton / board shorts. One older teen girl in light pink shorts but probably not shiny. Probably many more actors.

Pic 2 from the beginning, also a teen girl or woman cycling in black or similar shorts.

I don’t know the complete movie, yet and only have seen some short clips.

Rating 3-4 for now only. Needs to be rechecked.

Available on DVD: yes

Rating:  3/10
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this young lady in 70s style red shorts at around 1h08. Obviously few and brief scenes. Released in late 1980 but maybe filmed in late 1979.

Not bad (for a female). Typical movie of it’s kind. I also have to check earlier episodes of the Schulmädchen-Report. There are also some young kids acting, but not sure if in shorts as well.

English titles:  Schoolgirl Report Vol.13, Schoolgirl Report Vol.13: Don’t Forget Love During Sex, Sweet Young Trouble. Certified FSK 16, unlike the earlier parts.

Rating 3. Not sure if anyone of the readers is interested in women.

Comment: Some boys and girls in track shorts, including Adidas in different episodes.

First I found some (teen) girls in blue shorts in s1e5, shorts probably not shiny (pic on my pigtails blog, rating 8).

Pic 1 showing some boys in dark blue Adidas shorts but obviously not shiny in s6e1. Also boys and teen boys / young men in green shorts including at least one in shiny green Adidas shorts (from a distance), other boys in red and black shorts, black maybe a bit shiny.

Pic 2 showing boys in red shorts in s3e9. Pic 3 showing boys walking and cycling in blue, black, red, purple or brown and maybe other colors in s4e6. At least one blue is Adidas, probably shiny. But unfortunatley most shorts are maybe not shiny.

I haven’t checked all episodes, yet. I hope for more scenes (swim shorts ?) Officially on DVD only seasons 1-2.

Also (soon) on all my other blogs (except sailor suits), rating mostly 8-9.

Rating 6-7 for now. For more infos, see my other blogs.

Update: A black woman in dark red, short Basketball shorts in s2e16.

Rating:  4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Older teen boys and teen girls, this time not Basketball but Soccer, in shiny medium blue shorts, also sitting on the ground. Not sure about the other team(s).

Far not as good as the 1997 original first movie (rating 9)

Most boys are very old and not handsome, but could be worse.

Rating 4. Needs to be rechecked.

Junior Survival

Year in film: 1990s
Country: The Netherlands
Who in shorts: boys ~11-15

Available on DVD: no

Clothing occurence: often
Rating:  10/10
Rating: **********
Comment: 24 boys and teen boys and also some (few ?) girls in different shiny shorts including purple and medium blue. Many wet scenes, also sitting. Perfect rear views. I think few or no shirtless scenes.

I don’t remember all seasons and episodes. There should be around 8 episodes each season in at least 3 different countries with many hard competitions. Youngest boy (Remco ?) around 10 or 11 (younger looking), most around 13-15.

I think, I only have seen parts of 2 seasons. The best of course the purple shorts, I think in 1991 in Curacao. 8 episodes there. White inner briefs underneath, but not cotton but thin plastic nettings. Handsome blonde boys and many soaked wet scenes and other good scenes in different positions.

One season later, they wore medium blue shiny shorts (Belgium ?). Not far as good as the purple ones, maybe rating 6-7. At the final at a pool party (Tunisia ?), I remember an older teen boy wearing compression shorts underneath. I think no compression shorts under the purple shorts. Maybe some under the blue ones?

There should also been a 1997 show with boys 15-18 set in NL, but I haven’t seen that one. Maybe that in a studio?

I can’t say much more about this rare series. But I give rating 10 for the purple shorts. (Series Dallas still on TOP 1). No entry on IMDb. Some infos on Beeld en Geluid (no pics). I hope for a rebroadcasting or even DVD release.
