Comment: Clayton Williamson shirtless in this bedroom. I think no siblings?

Handsome actor. Interesting series and plot.

Looks like a typical bedroom.

Rating 5-6 for now.

 

 

Leider Lustig

Comedy series
Year: 2016-
Year in film: 2010s
Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: Marius ~10?
Kind of beds: high sleeper
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Rating: 4/10 *
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this handsome blonde boy in this bedroom with a high sleeper. Pic from s1e1 (guest Chris Tall). Probably his younger sister has a room for her own.

Unfortunately very few scenes of the room. And I think even fewer in later episodes, if any. Probably a studio room anyway.

Also nice sitting scenes of the boy in jeans.

I prefer bunk beds and siblings sharing a room.

Rating 4 for now only. Series is still running and available on the Mediathek.

Update: I think the boy is called Marius. He also appeared in later episodes. But obviously few scenes.

Phares d’ouest

Year: 1990
Year in film: 1990s
Country: France
Who in bedroom: boys 10-15
Kind of beds: rare bunk beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recordings
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.

Salem’s Lot (1979)

salemslotsalemslot4

Horror film, 2 parts starring Lance Kerwin
Year: 1979
Year in film: 1970s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Mark ~17. Danny ~12
Kind of beds: single beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: Different locations but very interesting, wooden 70s bedrooms. 17 or 18 yo, but younger looking Lance Kerwin (pics 1+2) I think alone in this room, but also visited by 2 friends. The 2 brothers (Danny and Ralphie, played by Brad Savage, pics 3+4  and Ronnie Scribner),  I think they have rooms for their own, but not sure, but Ralphie becomes a vampire anyway. Also a hospital bed of green metal and bedrooms of grown-ups (soon on my shiny shorts blog).

I like the rooms, very nice props and colors, but I think only single beds (except the hospital). Great story by Stephen King and handsome Lance Kerwin. I also have to check the later adaptions.

Rating 7-8.

Mystery in Dracula’s Castle

mysteryindraculascastlemysteryindraculascastle2

Disney-Land s19e11+12. Johnny Whitaker
Year: 1973
Year in film: 1970s ?
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Leonard ~11, Alfie ~13
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: no
I own: no
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: 13 yo Johnny Whitaker (“Tom Sawyer”, right bed) and 11 yo Scott C. Kolden (“Me as Chimp”) as brother Leonard sharing this bedrom. There’s also an older friend (Jean-Michel Michenaud) and a teen girl as baby sitter. Whitaker looks younger than 13.

Quite interesting, especially Scott, but I don’t like the 70s colors nor Johnny with his curly hair.

Probably a nice and funny detective movie and rather untypical Disney movie, but I only have checked it briefly.

Rating ~5 for now.

Spuk von draußen

Family series, 7 ep
Year: 1987-1988
Year in film: 1980s
Country: East Germany
Who in bedroom: girls ~8 bunk bed, same +boy
Kind of beds: bunk bed, one
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
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.

Update 2: Woof! (1989)

Country: UK
Who in bedroom: Eric ~11, friend ?
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: no
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 7/10 ?
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.
