Update: La pietra di Marco Polo

petradimarcopolo4petradimarcopolo7petradimarcopolo6

I now have checked the complete series. There are also some few other locations, like a hospital and other kids. And 7 yo Adi also sleeps in a single bed. The best is still the orange bunk bed.

Adi usually sleeps in the lower bunk and 11 yo Malcolm in the upper bunk. The grey suits are their sleepwear.

Pic 1 from ep 18. Pic 2 from ep 12 showing Adi in the lower bunk and a single bed in the background. Pic 3 from ep 20 in the hospital. At least 4 or 6 beds in this room. Pic 4 from ep 6 showing 2 separate beds, probably in the same room like the bunk bed.

Unpictured: another great scene with the bunk bed and all in the grey sleepwear in ep 26. Adi also shirtless in white underwear (ep 21).

Also on my bib overalls blog, soon be updated once more. Main entry here, previously rating 6, but I think I have to give rating 7-8.

Comment:
Eckehard ~10 yo (Stefan Naujokat) and his older sister Ilona ~16 from a single mother sleep in a larger room, dived by a curtain. A younger, blonde boy, Andreas ~6 yo, their future step-brother probably also sleeping there. Wooden, older beds.

Typical East German movie. I don’t like the 70s and the other brother is too young. Interesting room, though.

Rating 3-4 only.

I think a young boy and his even younger sister sharing this nice, wooden, modern room. Pic from ep. 3. I think there are also other bedrooms shown (of their parents). Maybe the room looking similar.

I still haven’t checked all episodes.

Also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 3) and my bib overalls blog, rating 4.

For the bedroom rating 5-6. The kids are quite young.

Comment:
A young boy on the left and a young girl sharing this nice attic room on a ranch. Not sure about their names, probably Jacob Fisher and Emma Roberts.

Also on my Western blog, rating 6 and my overalls blog rating 5 (same girl, woman). I almost forgot this.

Nice ranch movie and I have few with brother and sister sharing a room but they are quite young.

Rating 5-6.

Rating: 3/10 *
Rating: ***
Comment: From my Lederhosen blog (rating 9+). I almost forgot to post it here as well. Oscar Brose as 12 yo main character and probably his younger film sister, played by Magdalena Matz sharing this 1960s room.

Nothing special and few bedroom scenes. Wooden lower beds, angled at 90 degrees and ugly wallpapers.

For bedroom rating 3-4 only. Much higher for the movie itself.

For more infos see my other blog. Partly b&w. Also starring Peter Lohmeyer.

Comment: 2 sisters usually in a wooden bunk bed. But also later together with a boy (brother) in his bed (I think located in the same room).

Looks like the bunk bed in the 1982 series Spuk im Hochhaus (2 brothers, rating 4). Usually, I like bunk beds, but I don’t like the young girls and prefer US movies.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girls, rating 4).

I don’t know the complete series, yet.

Rating 3-4 for now only. Still quite interesting. I have few entries about sisters and brother+sisters.

Metal Mickey

Country: UK
Who in bedroom: Ken, Janey, Haley, Steve ?
Kind of beds: bunk beds
Available on DVD: s1+2
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: There are at least 2 simple, wooden bunk beds in this large bedroom, but (according to Wikipedia) the family consists of just 3 older teen kids, I think Ken (Ashley Knight ~20 yo, oldest kid), Janey (black teen girl Lola Young) and Haley (Lucinda Bateson). Maybe one bed is empty? Or the 4th bed is owned by Steve (20 yo Gary Shail ?)

Haley also in tight, light blue bib overalls, other blog rating 5.

Unusual large and quite interesting bedroom. Older teen kids and bother and sister sharing one room. Could be worse.

For bedroom, rating 4-5. Partly available on DVD.

Swiss Family Robinson (1976)

Adventure series. Chris Wiggins
Year: 1976

Country: Canada
Who in bedroom: Ernest 22, Marie ~12 ?
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: I found this scene in episode 2. Not sure who’s sharing this bed, I think it must be Michael Duhig and 12 yo Heather Graham. I wonder why Ernest is that old (22) in this series. In the novel he’s 13.

Probably the others also sleep in the same room? Including blonde Franz (Ricky O’Neill) around 13 yo and the parents?

Also on my pigtails blog rating 8.

Not to be confused with the 1975-1976 US series with a 13 yo Eric Olson as Ernie.

Rating 3 for now for the “bedroom”. Needs to be rechecked.

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.

Extra Zigda

extrazigda-bed

Sitcom, 15 ep
Year: 1998
Year in film: ~1998
Country: France
Who in bedroom: Karine ~8, Jonathan ~10
Kind of beds: bunk bed
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: First I thought, that 2 sisters would share this room and bunk bed, but the older girl is the alien lady Zigda. Karine (Clémence La Fleurière), maybe around 8 or 9 yo sleeps on the lower bunk and her brother Jonathan (Morgan Vasner) on the upper bunk. Pic from ep 11. Both together showing in a different episode. The wall paper and props look more like for babies.

(Older) brothers and sisters sharing a bunk bed is quite rare.

But there are better rooms, scenes and kids in other series and movies.

Rating 4-5.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, rating 5).
