Comment:
5 young teen boys from different regions making winter holiday together in Tyrol, Austria without parents. 2 bedrooms. 3 in one room, beds vertically aligned (later they changed it and one bed is vertical). The other 2 sharing a double bed. Bedrooms are in different wings of the house, both on the roof.

Series (season 3) is still running (weekdays on Kika) and also can be watched online at tivi.de. I like this series, although some are rather childish and silly. Some boys are handsome and they are all very different. Sleeping shirtless and also good scenes in the whirlpool and talking about private stuff.

I have to check the other episodes and also the earlier seasons.

For more infos see my Lederhosen blog, rating 4.

Rating 6 for now.

Comment:
8 children but only one preteen boy (Nicholas 8 yo in s1), one teen boy (Tommy 16) and one teen girl (Elizabeth 17 yo). The rest are in their 20s.

I haven’t checked all 112 episodes of this Lorimar series (“The Waltons”, another large family). And that are the best bedroom scenes I found.

At least 2 or maybe 3 sisters sharing the room in pic 2 (from the intro of season 1) and a teen boy (? is this Ralph Macchio ? or Grant Goodeve?) in pic 1 (unknown episode in 1980). Most interesting is Nicholas, played by Adam Rich, also on my bib overalls blog rating 7. He should share a room with his older brother Tommy (played by Willie Aames with longer curly blond hair, and also by Chris English in 1977). I haven’t found a pic showing both beds and don’t know if maybe one of them get a room for his own later.

There are also many other actors beside the family like friends (like Ralph Macchio and Noah Hathaway). Maybe there are more locations shown as well? There are also more different cast members in 1977 like Mark Hamill and Kimberly Beck. So it’s a bit confusing to identify and separate all them.

I don’t like the 70s and long hair, probably the last two seasons are better.

Rating 4-5 for now. I have to recheck full episodes later.
