Ellen Dorrit Petersen,
Great, realistic, funny, raw - definitely worth a watch!
I don't normally review movies/series, in fact this is my first review on IMDb ever. But there is only two reviews on this series and none of them are particularly positive and they don't capture what I feel about the series at all!
Yes, we have seen this kind of series and story before - a group of friends in their twenties trying to navigate in life, handling sex, relationships, family, career and social issues. They are all trying to find out who they are and how to fit in in this world. BUT the series is very different from anything I have seen before nonetheless. That is because of the realism.
It is much more down to earth and realistic than any American series I have ever seen and I can actually relate to the characters - not just relate (because of course I have related to a lot of characters form different series), but really think "this could happen, this could be real".
It is much like the widely popular series SKAM (which is also Norwegian), only the age of the characters (and the target audience) has been raised.
Maybe it has also something to do with the fact that it is set in Norway and I'm from Denmark, so I relate a lot to the culture depicted in the series.
A thing I don't like too much is that all the main characters and most of their friends are trying to get into careers like acting, writing, comedy and sports. No one is trying to get a "normal" education as a teacher or nurse or something. But I think it might have something to do with that they are all from them same "artistic" group/culture. Still it makes it a bit less realistic in that respect.
I hate rating movies and series because I can never fully make up my mind what I think about them. This series is not perfect - like almost no series are - but if you like a more realistic and down to earth feel and the portrayal of everyday life in a witty but raw manner, I would definitely recommend this series!!
The biggest downside is that there are only 6 episodes consisting of ca. 30 min in each season (and only 2 seasons so far, but I've heard that season 3 is on the way!), and that is not nearly enough!
