Rating: 3/10
Rating: ***
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.

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.

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: UK
Who in bedroom: Ken, Janey, Haley, Steve ?
Kind of beds: bunk beds
Available on DVD: s1+2

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.

Comment: A girl in this color bedroom. Released in 1980, shot maybe in 1979.

Also nice bib overalls scenes (other blog, rating 4).

What else to say? Nice colors, but I think no siblings.

Rating 4-5.

Main overwiew entry of all Afterschool Specials, rating up to 7 (also check out my other blogs)

Rating: 6/10 ?

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

St. Elsewhere

Rating: 7/10 ?

Comment: 2 or 3 boys in this hospital room. I don’t remember their names nor the exact episode. Can anybody help? Maybe also other interesting scenes and actors in other episodes? I think, I’ve seen 3 boys, but maybe one is from a different room.

Nice scenes. The boy on the right undressing himself wearing tighty whiteys (and the other is watching).

I thought, I already had a post of this.

Good 80s series. 5 Golden Globes.

Rating 7 for now.

Swiss Family Robinson (1976)


Adventure series. Chris Wiggins
Year: 1976
Year in film: 1801 ?
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.

Armans Geheimnis


Family mystery series, 2+ seasons
Year: 2015-
Year in film: 2010s, Fantasy, 1900s ?
Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: teen boys, girls ~15
Kind of beds: separate+single
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Main characters are 5 teens (3 boys, 2 girls). Modern ranch and city setting obviously in the present. But also other (fantasy) worlds and/or time travel. Partly looking medieval. Some clothes look like 1900s. Pics from today’s episode s1e13. Pic 2 maybe a bit earlier (bed of younger girl). I haven’t found infos about the exact time setting (in the other world). Or the exact plot.

At least 3 or maybe all 5 beds on pic 1. Beds angled. 2 boys head to head.

Starring Gil Ofarim, Sinje Irslinger and Luise Befort.

I don’t like this series with older teens. Reminds me of “Fluch des Falken” which is similar (boring).  There are also some younger actors (relatives) including boys, like Lutz Simon Eilert and Gereon Schoel, but I only have seen some pics and no more bedrooms. Unknown episode. Needs to be rechecked.

2nd season to be aired on Easter.

Rating 3 for now only. Typical series, mainly for girls (horses).
