I already mentioned on Twitter that I lost my heart to a new TV show. It's called Skam, is Norwegian and about teenagers in Norway. What a way to learn a new language and wow, learning a new language is hard. Why don't we all speak German?
I started the 3rd season because a friend told me about it. And I loved it so much that I started with the first season and watched everything. You have to know that every season focuses on another character.
First season is from the point of view of Eva. In the beginning she is quite lonely but at the end of the season she has her own kind of happy ending. I don't want to spoiler you. But it's more than just having a boyfriend for her. I liked that a lot.
Second season is about Noora.
She has her own problems and it's a lot more soapy than season 1 but still a lot better than what you see on TV.
Season 3 is about Isak and his feelings for that new guy Even. There's just one episode left and a 4th season will start next Spring.
What's special about this show is that you get updates through the week. The website skam.p3.no
posts new clips and text messages whenever something happens to the characters. On Friday you get a full clip (18-45 minutes long) of all the clips from the week. It's an interesting concept.
To be honest I just wait for the show to suck at one point because that's just what happens but for now I love the characters. Skam is a huge hit in Norway. I read somewhere on tumblr that they even talked about it and made references in the parliament. ;)
It's hard to find clips with English subtitles and for now I watch on the mothersite with Norwegian subtitles, and read the translation on Tumblr afterwards. Not great but it works for me.
