Trivia

Noora was the first character created for the series by Julie Andem. Julie Andem wanted to tell Noora and Williams' story, but felt it needed background which is why Eva is the lead of the first season. It was also decided early in the first season that Isak would be the lead character of the third season. See more »

An important, well written, well played, highly addictive show
4 January 2017 | by (Haugesund, Norway) – See all my reviews

I just love Skam. And I am not alone. Despite being in Norwegian, the show has managed to draw viewers around the world. The target group were initially Norwegian teenage girls, but Skam also has its share of adult fans. Actually, you don't have to be a teenager, Norwegian or Scandinavian to appreciate Skam.

Here are some of the reasons that I love this series: Skam has a tight and well written storyline, as well as lovely, believable faulty characters, that really evolve during their own seasons. The shifting point of view makes us realize that "everyone fights a battle you know nothing about". The show has good, realistic dialogues, fantastic acting and beautiful high-impact visual scenes, we get close to the characters, also visually. At times it is as if we are them, and feel what they feel. The music is great, and fits the scenes perfectly. Skam is playful when it comes to genre and style, it has a mix of realism, drama and comedy, and it works.

The series tackles important issues for the target group and the whole modern society, in a smart, straightforward and not admonishing manner. The issues the show tackles, from Islamophobia and homophobia to date rape, eating disorders and mental illness, feel authentic because they are presented earnestly. The show mirrors all of us, and lets us look at our own hidden fears and prejudices in a clever way.

The fact that we can follow the characters in real time is also fantastic. Skam is pioneering in the way that clips are posted in real time online, as if its characters truly exist. Fans can interact with their favorite Skam characters on Facebook or Instagram. A new clip, Message or Insta can come anytime during the night or day. This also makes the show highly addictive. I also love the show because of all the lovely easter eggs, "messages" to fans and references to literature, movies, music, religion and philosophy that it provides.

And finally there is the one thing that makes this show the best. It aims to reduce the kids' shame, and it uses humor to show that we all are human, we make mistakes. And it's OK.
