jas i just spent an hour watching this middle aged man's younow where he talked about meeting dan and phil. he's saying other things but retold their missed flight story and he was saying how they were clearly tired but very kind to everyone they met and he was talking about how everyone in line was young and he said "yes i'm your oldest fan" and apparently they laughed and he said it was nice they give actual hugs and they're genuinely nice lmao. he kept saying it was the highlight of his day
middle aged man on younow update: he hugged phil first and he said “i know you’re dead” (tired) and phil was like “yeah we are”
honestly this just made my day that’s so cute. it’s so nice he was so considerate to dan and phil i’m happy for him :(
Thank you, Skam. For coving important issues like religion, sexuality, and mental illness without the cliches and not sugar coating the subjects. Turning an overused plot into an interesting and entertaining concept. Having a diverse cast and characters that weren’t stereotyped. Beating all American shows and delivering the best coming out/acceptance storyline. And for teaching the lesson of, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.” I’m gonna miss Skam.
“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.”
I think, that quote sums up Skam for me. In reality, we assume that someone is just mean or grumpy because it is who they are. Well, it is not. It is because of the way they choose to deal with their problems. I analyzed the characters of Skam, I especially analyzed the four mains and also two extra characters who were supposed to have their own season if it went accordingly to the original plan.
Eva seemed like an insecure and quiet girl who was isolated. Then, it was revealed that she was not as innocent as she looked. The guilt she felt was what made her isolate herself from anyone. Because she was afraid of facing the truth about herself. She learned that avoiding and running from was not the answer she needed. Facing her own mistakes and owning them was the real answer she needed.
Noora seemed like a strong and independent girl. Then, we all thought she changed and became someone else when she fell in love. But it wasn’t the case. She finally felt that she was loved and she could love so she let her guard down. Because Noora’s parents are neglecting parents so Noora was trying to be strong to prove that she didn’t need anyone. She learned that people need people. When her boyfriend was thinking of leaving, she reminded him that people need people. She understood that having other people that love you is what made her strong, not being alone on her own.
Isak seemed like a careless, immature, sarcastic and snaky boy. However, it was just a mask he chose to wear as a coping mechanism. Because he was afraid of discovering who he was so he was faking everything all along. He was acting in a way that wasn’t him so others wouldn’t realize who he was. Then, he realized this faking process has been exhausting him and turned him into someone else. He was worried about future but then he realized what is important is right now. When he owned who he was and started to live the moment, he had a character development. He still has his insecurities that make him aggressive, jealous, overprotective and paranoid but at least, now he knows how to embrace love and appreciate others and himself.
Sana seemed like such a tough, sassy and independent girl. It was like she was invulnerable. Then, we found out how vulnerable she actually was. She was trying too hard to hide her soft side so people wouldn’t see her weak. She didn’t talk about her feelings because she expected others to understand her since she understands others without them telling anything. She learned that not everyone is as observant as her. By making her own mistakes, Sana realized she had to communicate with others so others can understand her. She understood that sharing her own feelings was what made her strong, not hiding them.
Chris seemed like one of those girls who give 0 fucks. She also stayed away from drama. She looked like a fun person. However, it wasn’t who she was. She chose to stay away from drama because conflicts were scaring her. She thought she wasn’t a good friend even though she always helped her friends when they were in a bad place. Then, she learned that she had to tackle conflicts because she is more than a good friend and she can help her friends. Finding out that she had to power of resolving conflicts made her quit running from conflicts.
Vilde seemed like an ignorant girl who tried too hard to fit in. Then, we found out Vilde is struggling in her personal life trying to take care of her mother and her house. Ignoring problems has been her coping mechanism. That was why she seemed so ignorant most of the time. Also, Vilde misses being taken care of. That is why she makes an effort to take care of her friends after they take care of her.

I love BNHA a lot in general but one of my highest praises is for how they handle Bakugou.
Like, the “cool, angry, top-of-his-game rival character who hates the protagonist” is dime-a-dozen in shonen series. That’s who Bakugou is. And its real common to toss a set of rose-tinted glasses on every other character so they all see Rival Guy as cool and amazing and admirable. That way the protagonist has to work extra hard to beat his rival AND prove himself to everyone else, who all just blindly adore Rival Guy.
And BNHA…doesn’t do that. BNHA lets everyone understand that Bakugou is an asshole. He’s strong. He’s talented. He’s a force of nature. The other kids know this, but theyre not blinded by it. They understand he’s unfairly cruel to Deku. They know his ego is a problem. They’re not scared of him or dazzled by him. They take notice when he’s being a problem. They call him out. They tease him.
There’s the bus scene in early season 1 where Deku’s cowering in shock because Good god, these kids have the nerve to mock Bakugou. Because the kids in Deku and Bakugou’s old school were a lot more like the typical shonen characters. They let Bakugou get away with his awfulness because he was Bakugou. The UA kids are a different cut though. They don’t care Bakugou was #1 in the exam. They don’t care that he’s Bakugou.
And heck, half of Bakugo’s character arcs involve him hopping from one angry existential crisis to another, because he’s not always the best, because he can’t win everyone over to his side with confidence, because he can’t accomplish every single thing his inflated ego says he should be accomplishing. The audience witnesses him meet resistance and hardship and consequence for being an egotistical, hot-headed bully. He faces real-world honest consequences for being that kind of terrible person.
Bakugo hasn’t had one definite character-redeeming moment–no “oh you talked sense into me and now im Good™ “. But as the manga goes on, he’s become less volatile, less cocky, less eager to harass Deku. He still is an asshole, but he’s changed. I have a lot of respect for how it’s been handled. Slowly, progressively. His ego has been chiseled down by personal failures, by witnessing how his cocky confidence does harm to himself and others.
I love that BNHA doesn’t let the cool, powerful, rival character just have his way. I love that BNHA doesnt just whack Bakugo with a single character-redemption arc and pull him through the other side. I love that BNHA shows us what things are whittling down Bakugo, that they take a metaphorical spray bottle to him again and again, pushing him into something less cruel than he was.

beacon hills was a beautiful town, strange but beautiful none the less. you’d lived here your whole life, fortunately you’d managed to go most of your life without knowing what truly lurked in the dark but in the end, you were exposed to it all and fighting things nightmares were made of was a daily occurrence now.
