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: 9 or 10 yo Tadeusz Horvath aka Tadeusz Horvath-Sienkiewicz as Stas (Stanni in Germany), pic 2 sharing the room with 2 girls (one older, one younger), probably his sisters played by Agnieszka Krukówna (Asia/Anja) and Monika Sapilak (?) as Basia/Bärbel. Beds of the girls a bit angled. Beige or yellow wooden beds and farm setting. Not sure about the time setting. Probably the 80s. Pics from ep 2.

There are also 3 more kids (2 young twin boys and one girl), but I haven’t seen their room, yet.

Also on my bib overalls blog (boy, girl, man, rating 6) and my pigtails blog (rating 6). German title: Die Kinder vom Mühlental.

I still have to recheck the complete series as well as the sequels.

Rating 6 for now. 2 sisters and one brother in one room is quite rare. Interesting farm room.

Comment: Samuel Costa and another person in nice, wooden beds. I think, he don’t have siblings. Maybe a friend or grown-up? I also remember another, colorful, room with his friends and also inside a tent.

I don’t remember the complete movie. Based on the 1980 comics by Ziraldo.

Another one from my VHS and also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 4). Soon on my pigtails blog, rating 6.

Nice room, good movie, so rating 6-7.

Year in film: 1970s (beds)
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Dimitri, Howard ~11, 12 ?
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: VHS only ?
I own: no
Rating: 8 /10
Rating: ********
Comment: 2 boys, probably Matthew Licht (younger brother of Jeremy Licht) and Alexander Polinski (as Howard on the bike) sharing this 70s bedroom. Obviously not brothers, but Dimitri is an exchange student. Beds aligned at 90 degrees. I only noticed 2 brief scenes at daytime. Half of the movie is set in the 1980s (grown-ups).

Some interesting scenes like boys in shiny shorts (shiny shorts blog rating 7) and dropping down their pants in front of a girl.

Interesting movie and I like this bedroom.

Although few good scenes and I don’t like the 70s, rating 7-8.

Schloss Einstein – season 20

se871bse871

German TV series about a boarding school
Year: 1998-
Year in film: (1990s)-2010s
Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: ~3 teen boys / girls each
Kind of beds: single beds
Available on DVD: no, partly
I own: yes, partly TV recordings
Rating: 8 /10
Rating: ********
Comment: Some boys and girls, aged 12 and older in different rooms. Room pictured in ep 871 sharing Dominik and 2 new actors (Henri and Jannis).

It’s on a new, third location (since season 19). All very fresh and colorful. I never liked the episodes set in Erfurt.

In yesterday’s ep 872, all 3 boys are shown in their beds talking to each other (bird’s view) and photoshopped next each other on a window. First I thought, that they would share one large bed. One is homesick. Also a funny plot about a friendship contract. Rebroadcasting today. New episodes weekdays on Kika.

Although in the studio, I prefer the first, fictional location in Seelitz (s1-10).

Also on all my other blogs, including the new shiny shorts and pigtail blog but most entries on my bib overalls blog.

Main entry here including a bunk bed

Comment:
2 brothers in the 1982 episode s4e6 (pic 1, I think Sammy Snyders around 15 yo (“Huckleberry Finn and His Friends (1979)“, rating 8) on the left and a younger film brother, maybe Mark Polley on the right.

I haven’t checked all episodes, yet. But I like this wooden room and this is the best, I’ve found yet. I hope to find some more rooms. Bunk beds? Girls? More siblings?

Pic 2 showing boys at a hospital in s1e22. At least 4 or more likely 6 beds. I only remember these 2 boys. Other beds maybe empty?

Officially on DVD only seasons 1-2.

Also (soon) on all my other blogs (except sailor suits), rating mostly 8-9.

Rating 9-10 for now. For more infos, see my other blogs.

Comment:
Moritz Bleibtreu (obviously on the left) and his older (unknown) film brother in episode 25 (“Der große Bruder”, 1980). Probably also other bedrooms (in other episodes) including girls, but most kids are very young (5-6 yo).

I don’t like the 1970s nor darkhaired actors, nor very young kids, but nice room and age difference. Interesting series (these days).

I don’t remember all episodes, maybe there are even better bedrooms (bunk beds ?).

Rating 6-7 for now.

Also on my other blogs, rating up to 6 (for shiny shorts).

Comment:
Some orphaned Soccer boys in this dorm. Some boys sitting on the beds (even at least 5 sitting on one bed), some shirtless in shorts. Maybe around 12 beds. Dorm looking quite unusual, almost like a living room at the other angle.

Several good shiny shorts scenes including boys in pink. (Rating 8 on my other blog).

Rating 6-7 for this dorm. Nice 80s movie I found by searching for all 1983 movies on IMDb.

Comment:
Several boys in this boarding school (I think also shirtless) in a quite large large, nice 1950s dorm. Not sure if there are more dorms. At least 2 rows (or maybe 3) of white metal beds horizontally aligned, separated by low cupboards. There are also tables and high cupboards in the room.

I like classics and this is much better than the remakes. I think rather few scenes in the middle of the movie. I have few entries about boarding schools, especially with early settings. The novel is set even earlier but the plot is timeless and always set in the presence.

Also on my Lederhosen blog (rating 4) and my pigtails blog (boy, rating 8).

Rating 6-7 for this dorm.

Comment:
Some, mainly younger teen boys shirtless at a summer camp. At least 2 or maybe 4 bunk beds in one cabin and I think 2 more separate beds (at least in some and/ or in one of the girls cabins). At least 3 or 4 boys in one room what would be quite few.

I don’t know/don’t remember the complete movie and have to recheck it.

Maybe not as famous as the 1980s original movie (rating 5), but at least nice wooden bunk beds and shirtless scenes and obviously a good horror movie to me. The other sequels still needs to be checked.

So rating 7 for now.

Next post in January.

 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers!
