The story of a group of British teens who are trying to grow up and find love and happiness despite questionable parenting and teachers who more want to be friends (and lovers) rather than authority figures.
Social media profiles on Facebook and Instagram has been created for many of the characters. On the official web site you can see many images and videos from the characters Instagram, and also read chat and message logs, and see Youtube videos they have shared with each other. The social media aspect is a major part of the show and flesh out the characters and story. See more »
SKAM isn't perfect, it's still (3 seasons in) very white and some problematic things have popped up here and there without it being discussed on the show.
Nevertheless, can we talk about how SKAM manages to give us such amazing plot and character development in just one season? (this goes for all seasons but especially season 3)
The whole fandom roared in anger when they changed last week's clip from 45min to 18min but then cried together in joy because the writers managed to give us so much in those six new minutes. Something most TV shows spend a whole season TRYING to achieve.
I believe the reason is the friendships the show has built up and letting us see, both in the clips and also in all the social media posts. (I highly recommend checking out the social media posts over at Skam's webpage!) Because real friends push each other. So instead of spending hours of screen time where the character has to figure out how to solve a problem or move past something, the friends are there. Calling out BS, listening, reasoning, supporting.
They are all growing together, and I'm so glad we get the chance to grow as well. ❤︎
