Year: 1990
Year in film: 1990s
Country: France
Who in bedroom: boys 10-15
Kind of beds: rare bunk beds
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Next to the “beds” on the ship, I think mainly or only hammocks, there are also these rare bunk beds behind a wall opening, I think in a builing in ep 4. I only know wall niche beds in medieval and 18/19th century settings.

The bunk beds have (at least) 2 stories. Unfortunately, I haven’t noticed better views of them. Mainly wooden but with steel ladders. There are in total 12 boys (+ crew) but not sure if all sharing one room. Maybe some sleeping on the floor or in other rooms.

Rating 6-7 for now. Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 6. English title: Western Lights.

Vito e gli altri

vitoeglialtri

Drama
Year: 1991
Year in film: 1990s
Country: Italy
Who in bedroom: boys ~11-16
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: I think 4 beds with shirtless boys including Vito (Nando Triola), I think the youngest, around 11 or 12 yo. Others are much older. Street kids, maybe (partly) orphans and not brothers.

Great movie and some nice scenes, but I prefer bunk beds, brothers and US movies.

So for the bedrooms, rating 7-8 only.

I have seen it long time ago, but checked it completetly but at high speed some months ago for my unknown Italian movie (on my sailor suit blog). English title: Vito and the Others.

Year: 1999
Year in film: 1990s
Country: Belgium
Who in bedroom: Blinker ~13 ?
Kind of beds: single
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: I’m not sure about the actor. The main character (Joren Seldeslachts) is blonde, so maybe one of his friends in this dark blue bedroom. Medium brown wooden bed and furniture. I think no siblings.

I don’t like this actors nor movie. One brief skinny dipping scene at the beginning. Bedroom and plot are quite interesting, though.

Also on my bib overalls blog (teen girl, rating 4 as well).

There are 1 or 2 sequels but they are even worse.

For the bedroom rating 4. Movie itself even less.

Update 2: Woof! (1989)

Rating: 7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: I already have 2 pics, but from season 1 (1989). The new pics are from s8e8 featuring different actors. The main character is darkhaired Adam Roper as Rex (pictured on left) instead of Edward Fidoe as Eric and his older, blonde friend Monty Allan as Michael Tully (maybe the boy with the black suit and helmet ?). The other blonde, boy pictured is obviously someone else. There are now at least 2 beds, one looks like a guest bed. But the table looks similar. Maybe more locations shown?

Great series. Handsome actors. Unfortunatley still not on DVD.

Still rating 7.

Rating: ****
Comment: Michael Fishman in this bedroom in s2e6. He has 2 older sister, who probably have rooms for their own. (Sorry, I haven’t found them).

Good series. Also the boy and the girls in bibs overalls (other blog, rating 6).

I have to recheck this series, especially the later seasons.

For now, rating 4 only. I think few bedroom scenes like in most sitcoms.

Comment: Pic 1 from s4e11 (2000) with David Peachey in this attic bedroom. Pic 2 from the 2004 series s7e9 Ryan Watson playing Bernard in this messy bedroom. I think no siblings. Cousin Lucy stayed by him in season 4 (probably in a separate room). I have to recheck the earlier episodes as well.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 6 and my pigtails blog, rating 4. And soon on my bib overalls blog, rating 6 (girls).

Interesting series by David Cobham (seasons 1-5) “Woof! (1989)” rating 7, “Out of Sight (1996)” rating 5. Unfortunately all series are not on DVD.

Rating 4-5 for now.

Country: Italy, Germany
Who in bedroom: boys ~8-16
Kind of beds: separate
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: By coincidence another hospital TV series which is currently being aired on BibelTV. Both pics from s1e5 (1993) with a handsome boy wearing an ear ring.

There are typical hospital beds and small rooms, but also strange, older looking metal beds (for younger kids ? in a dorm)

Interesting series, but also with older teen boys and I only have seen this episode.

For now, rating 6-7. German title: Die Kinderklinik

Josh and S.A.M.

joshandsam

Drama starring Noah Fleiss
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Josh ~13, Sam ~8
Kind of beds: separate ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Brothers Josh and Sam, played by Canadian Jacob Tierney and Noah Fleiss, I think sharing this room (or maybe have separate rooms ?). Sorry, I don’t remember this movie and have to recheck it.

Looks like a typical, modern 90s bedroom. I think few scenes as this is a road movie.

Rating 4-5 for this bedroom for now only. Movie rating maybe even higher.

Harnessing Peacocks

harnessingpeacocks2harnessingpeacocks

Drama, romance
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1980s ?
Country: UK
Who in bedroom: 3 or 4 boys ~11-12
Kind of beds: single+ bunk bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: I think there are 4 boys, but I only have seen a bunk bed (or high sleeper) on the left and a separate bed. The room is too small for a 4th bed, so either on has a room for his own, or one boy is just a friend or relative.

Interesting room and scene including a changing scene, but unfortunately, I haven’t noticed any other bedroom scenes, only this one at daytime.

Rating 6. 1985 novel by Mary Wesley, so maybe set in the 80s.

Comment: 10 yo brother Jerry (Simon James, red shirt, upper bunk) and his film twin sister Louise (Kate McNeil) sharing this room and dark wooden bunk bed. Pic from s1e22. Also he shown in bed in s1e14.

A room of a Japanese girl is shown in s1e12. Also some more locations, like a tent (boy with a dark bowlcut and round glasses in s1e25).

Good series and handsome kids, but I prefer the 60s Classic (rating 6, 2 brothers).

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 9.
