Comment:
Connor Widdows as 7 yo Jesse in the bedroom on pic 1. He also has a brother at the same age (he probably has a room for his own) set in 1958, also about 8 years later teen boy Jesse sleeps in the room on pic 2 or similar. He is also shown sitting on the bed in pajamas. All pics from episode 2.

Perfect alien abduction scenes where aliens making experiments with the blond teen boy (James Kirk) and his dad (no  clothes, plot rating 10). I even almost bought the DVD but there are few good scenes and they are completely on YouTube.

I haven’t checked all episodes. There’s also at least one or 2 girl/teen girls in bib overalls (soon on my other blog, rating 5). I have seen this series some years ago but didn’t pay attention then to bedrooms or overalls.

Also starring grown up Ian Tracey (my favourite teen actor in the early 80s “Huckleberry Finn And His Friends (1979), rating 8).

I have to check all the other episodes as well.

Rating 4 for these bedroom scenes.

Comment:
Huckleberry Fox (left) and his older film brother (Troy Bishop) sharing this wooden bed with high posts. One brief scene at 1h19. Also both shown in pajamas at 1h02 and 2 good scenes in different swimwear (1h21, 1h42).

There are also other bedroom scenes, like Shirley MacLaine (on left) and her film Daughter Debra Winger lying on a bed which is on the DVD cover. Also hospital scenes. But nothing of interest for this blog with older grown ups.

I don’t like this movie and don’t watch this often although I like the 80s. Good but also short swimming scenes (inside and outside pools).

5 Oscars. Also starring Jack Nicholson and Danny DeVito. Directed by James L. Brooks (The Simpsons).

Rating 3 for bedroom scenes, rating 2 for movie, rating 6 for swimming scenes.
