Rating: ****
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 in shorts as well as some few scenes shirtless in swim shorts in the 1991 episode “Summer Camp” which is about blind kids and counselor.

Has been aired some days ago, but I missed some parts. Not as good as some other episodes (like s2e1, also at summer camp, see main entry, rating up to 7).

Justin Gocke (1978-2014, “Santa Barbara”, also on my overalls blog) as 10 yo Eric in red and other track shorts (pic 2) and a man (Tom Sullivan) in red swim shorts.

Some handsome boys, (another, unknown blonde boy even more of interest than Gocke) but most shorts are not shiny. A very good scene of a tug of war game where the kids falling down.

Another blind boy in yellow and yellow/colorful shorts. Same pair (pic 1) also used for swimming and on he water slide.

Great series, I own seasons 1-3 only.

Comment: At least this teen boy in blue swim shorts in an indoor pool. I found a brief clip on one of my VHS recordings, some time ago and I don’t remember in which episode. Maybe also some more actors/actresses in other episodes?

Interesting series. As usual many guest stars. I remember few episodes, most notably one starring Eddie Karr (probably not in shiny shorts). I sometimes confound this with “Touched by an Angel (1994)”, another interesting series with a different black lady, which needs to be checked as well.

Rating 4-5 for this episode. Needs to be rechecked.

Update: Il ritorno del piccolo Lord

ilritornodelpiccololord

I previously don’t had any pics, as I only remember few and brief scenes, mainly in and underwater. Luckily, I now found this pic on an old hard drive, dark blue or black with yellow swim shorts. I don’t remember good scenes of the other (red) shorts.

Not that bad, but very few and brief scenes at the beginning only. Very poor, modern movie remake of Little Lord Fauntleroy. (Rating 1-2).

Main entry, still rating 3-(4) at

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.

Rating: *****
Comment: Björn Söderbäck and Urban Strand shirtless in 1960s swim shorts. Several good scenes including sitting. Shorts are not shiny. The blue ones appear quite shiny when wet, I think this is Niklas which blonde hair is a bit darker.

This scenes are the best of this series. I don’t like at all the very annoying little girl(s) (rating 1 on my bib overalls blog).

As these shorts aren’t really shiny, I give rating 4-5 for these 1960s shorts. QUite handsome boys, but I prefer the 80s and the US.

I have to recheck this movie/series for other (dry) shorts.

Comment: Two boys in dark blue and yellow swim shorts in s2e10 and Soccer boys and girls in black, white and blue shorts s2e4.

Also a boy (Bernard) in light blue shorts sitting on the grass, a girl in red and a boy in green shorts (Soccer) and some in the locker room. Unknown episode. YouTube clip “Titles and special effects”.

After Woof!, I also found this nice series from the same Director.

Funny plot about stopping the time. I assume rather few good scenes. Kids are also quite young. I haven’t checked all episodes.

Rating 6-7 for now. Also on my pigtails blog, rating 4.

Comment: At least Kyle Howard shirtless and wet in dark red board shorts. Also on his bed in underwear (white/colorful boxer shorts).

Unfortunately these swim shorts are not shiny, but I like this actor and scene when he’s coming out of the water. Great and funny movie. I have to watch it again to check out for maybe more scenes and other actors. But I don’t remember more.

Also on my bedroom blog, rating 6.

For these shorts, rating 6-7.
