Comment: Seth Green (Lance, the older brother) and Joshua Rudoy (“Harry and the Hendersons (1987)”) sharing this room. A rare high sleeper with large green (metal ?) posts and wooden side parts. Below the other bed, angled at 90 degrees (for Dennis ?).

I have some few episodes on DVD and TV recordings, but not this one. I have briefly checked some episodes (for shiny shorts) but haven’t found anything of interest. One of the boys here, I think Seth, wearing shorts, but not shiny.

Also on my overalls blog (f, m) rating 5. Great and funny series.

Main entry (s1e1) rating 5 at

Update: Tiere bis unters Dach

tierebisuntersdach-ep68

Another nice wooden bunk bed or looking more likely a high sleeper in season 6 (episode 68). This time of one or two boys (new characters, Tom? on left in the background). He has a brother called Ben. Previously I only noticed a high sleeper and another bed of two girls.

Main entry, rating 5

Comment:
There are 45 episodes but rather few good bedroom scenes. Most siblings are  I think in ep 43. 2 sisters and 3 brothers. The 2 girls, around 9 yo sharing a room (pic 3) and painted a boarder in the middle of the room including a table. Wooden beds, the sheets of the other bed are blue. The room of the boys (Benny, Hannes, Matthias, 2 around 10, 1 around 7) is shown briefly (pic 2). Not sure if all 3 sharing this room, probably at least 2.

Pic 1 is from ep 16 showing a boy without siblings. One more pic of a girl’s bedroom on my overalls blog. Ep 44 showing a wooden high sleeper. I think also a young brother and sister sharing one room. Most kids are very young anyway and boys are longhaired. Many wear corduroy pants.

I like the 80s but rather few scenes of interest. So rating 5 only. Many overalls scenes (rating 7), some very handsome boys and other good scenes (Lederhosen, speedos, shirtless, shiny shorts…)

Comment:
Some teens in different “habitats” of the Space Camp in Huntville, Alabama. But few and short scenes only. At least 2 bunk beds and one high sleeper with a desk underneath (might differ on other rooms). High sleeper is shown on front and another bunk bed is angled at 90 degrees on the southern wall. Looks like wooden and with red metal. Not even fully shown, so I had to search for real photographs. Also teen boys and girls in quite good blue coveralls.

Had been aired 3 weeks ago. Main character is a 13 yo boy.

Interesting “dorms” (real location) but unfortunately no real good scenes.

Rating 3-4. Could be much higher with a different plot. The movie is also nothing special, some competitions of older teens. Very low IMDb rating of 4.3, rated PG.

Comment:
Alvin Alvarez as Larry (10 yo in season 1) sharing a room with his 2 older brothers. He has a separate bed on the right (pics 2 + 3). One of the brothers sleeps in a high sleeper, the other below that. Larry has a twin sister who has a room for her own (also shown in s1e1).

Pic 1 is from s1e4, pic 2 from s2e6, pic 3 from s1e1.

The series is not available on DVD but on YouTube (with Spanish subtitles). Not sure about the time setting. Some props seem much older. Probably filmed starting the late 90s but setting could also be even in the 80s but I don’t think so.

3 brothers in a room and a high sleeper is quite rare. I haven’t checked all episodes, but somehow I don’t like it.

For more infos see my overalls blog. Larry also sitting on his bed in overalls.

Rating 4-5 for now. There is also a movie.

Comment:
A young boy in most likely a wooden high sleeper. I don’t remember. It’s not completely shown here, maybe a bunk bed. Is that Marty Van Hoe? There is also an older boy Scott Schwartz ~14 yo but I haven’t noticed him in a bedroom.

From my bib overalls blog (rating girl+woman in overalls). Completely on YouTube, scene at 42 minutes. Another one at 1h17.

Good ranch content, but few bedroom scenes.

So rating 5 only. Not sure about the year of setting. Pic is streched, needs to be widescreen.

Comment: I think Michael Cera as George-Michael and Alia Shawkat (who plays his cousin Maeby) in this wooden high sleeper and a bed underneath. Also a real bunk bed in the prison. Episode s3e7 Prison Break-in. Pic taken from the arresteddevelopment.wikia.com.

I don’t know this series and found it by coincidence.

The wooden bed also appeared earlier, some good pics at the wikia in s1e7 and s2e14 and also showing Ann Veal who plays his girl friend. There are also flashback episodes with younger kids but not sure if bedrooms are shown. Probably there are also other bedrooms.

I can’t say much more yet but I like this bedroom. Michael Cera and others also wearing a sailor suit, for more infos see my other blog, rating 6.

For this bedroom rating 6-7. Sadly he obviously has no siblings.

Comment: At least obviously 2 girls in this bedroom. Interesting high sleeper.

From my overalls blog (a boy, rating 6).

Sorry I don’t know the complete movie and can’t say how many siblings and if brothers or boys bedrooms shown as well.

For more info see my other blog.

For bedroom scene rating 4-5 for now.

 

I still have to pause blogging.

Comment: 2 girls in this bedroom in one of the first episodes of season 3. I don’t remember their names and not sure if they are sisters in the series. The girl on the left might be 10 yo Lotte Hanné and maybe Enya Elstner but the main characters in this season are different actresses. I also haven’t seen bedrooms of boys yet (I missed 3 episodes).

For more infos see my overalls blog (rating 6, season 1-2, and rating 3 for now for season 3). Farm content.

Season 3 probably not yet available on DVD.

For this bedroom rating 4-5 for now.

At least in season 4 there are 2 girls (cousins) in this or a similar room. About 12 yo Lotte Hanné and I think a different girl.

Update: Bunk bed or high sleeper of 2 brothers in season 6 (rating 5)

Comment: Lukas Haas in this bedroom. Episode s1e1 “Ghost Train”.

I don’t remember all episodes and only have 8 episodes on 2 DVDs and some TV recordings.

Very good series, some with farm content (also see my overalls blog). But there are (mystery) series I like more.

No siblings but I also have to check the other episodes. Rating 4-5 for this bedroom.

Update: s1e13 “The Sitter” has 2 brothers and a high sleeper (rating 5).
