It was my case a month ago. After my friend literally hassled me with the story of her new favourite characters, I finally decided to watch it. She told me before I start “You’ll see, it is a bit like SKINS”
SKINS used to be one of my favourite show a few years ago and I watched it at least three times. So I was about to be impartial.
Verdict … (drum rolls). It is so addictive that I saw the three whole seasons in a week. Don’t judge me please. You will probably binge-watch the show too. Moreover, the episodes last around twenty minutes which is so short that when you just finished to watch one you think you have the time for another (then another, then another …)
Each season is devoted to a character. You will be immersed in the life of 1999’s Norwegian kids. It is so realistic that they could be your mates.
Indeed, forgive me dear Americans but most of the time your teen shows are not realistic at all. The actors are 25, they don’t have acne, they wake up wearing make up, they are body goals … (Well, we can’t criticize too much because there’s no french teen show)
The show deals with “taboo” topics such as homosexuality, religion or eating disorders.
However, unlike their brit cousins’, SKAM protagonists are not too trashy and tragicall.
Also, the soundtrack is dope (you can find it on Spotify) and you can follow the characters on Instagram!

Here is the end of the description, I certainly don’t want to spoil … (Well, more than I already did)
