Comment: Some boys, including many older teen boys in this cabin with steel bunk beds. At least around 4 bunk beds in this cabin. Probably more cabins, but I think not shown.

Quite interesting, so rating 6-7. But there are much better camp and Scout movies.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 3.

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.

Comment: Two brothers sharing this bedroom. Beige and brown look quite old fashioned. The youngest (Tomas Holy as Ladislav, 1968-1990, pic 2) should be around 10 yo but looking even younger, the other (Miroslav Batik) is a bit older, 1 or 2 years.

I found this by coincidence on YouTube. 1h length.

Somehow quite interesting.

So rating 5-6.

Directed by Ludvik Raza (“Odysseus a hvezdy”, see shiny shorts blog). Title means Vampire in the Tower.

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

Great plot and movie. Handsome actors.

Unfortunately most of the movie is dark lit.

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.

What Love Sees

Comment: I think there are three brothers including 9 yo Coutland Mead as blind Hap and 2 older boys (12 yo Cody McMains as Billy and 13 yo Trevor O’Brien, brother of Austin as Gordy) and one 15 yo sister (Ashlee Lauren as Faith). Sorry, I’ve read that too late, so I don’t know exactly who is in this room. Nice wooden old bunk bed.

I assume that the 3 brothers sharing a room, so there must be a separate bed. Or another bunk bed or room. Ranch setting, I think mainly in the (late) 1950s (as pictured). Starring Richard Thomas as dad. 1988 novel by Susan Vreeland.

Also on my overalls blog (Mead, rating 4).

Rating 6 for now for this bedroom. Needs to be rechecked. Idon’t like Mead here. The older boys are probably more of interest.

Rating: 6/10 ?

Comment: Pic 1 showing 2 boys in ep 26 (not sure if brothers), pic 2 is from ep 21, probably a different room and actor. Many kids acting. Some are siblings (in the series and in real life).

Another great Australian series by Roger Mirams. I only have checked it briefly.

It’s a kid’s holiday camp in a ghost city (gold mine, Western town setting). Maybe I missed even better scenes?

Also on my pigtails blog rating 6 and my overalls blog (girl) rating 3.

There was a sequel series called Professor Poopsnagle’s Steam Zeppelin” with the same kids. Nice blue coveralls in there.

Rating 6 for now. Needs to be rechecked completetly.

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.
