SKAM 2015-2017

Season One
Eva’s season taught us about individual identity. It taught us that it is important to love ourselves first and to surround ourselves with people who remind us of who we are.

“I have to find out what my opinion is. And I have to do it on my own.”

Season Two
Noora’s season taught us about feminism, sexual assault and eating disorders. It showed us the importance of friends and female solidarity.

“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.”

Season Three
Isak’s season taught us about sexual identity, mental illness and prejudice. It showed us the importance of friends, communication and self-acceptance.

“Whether you believe in Allah or Jesus or evolution or parallel universes, there’s only one thing we know for sure. That life is now.”

Season Four
Sana’s season taught us about religion, prejudice, cultural identity and belonging. It showed us the importance of friendship, kindness, love and tolerance.

“Because even though it sometimes feels like it, no one’s ever alone. … Fear spreads, but fortunately, love does too.”

THE COMPLETE SKAM EXPERIENCE: The only masterpost you’ll ever need. All of the Norwegian SKAM content compiled, in English.

You’ve seen SKAM, but have you seen ALL of SKAM? If you’re not a Norwegian speaker, but want to view all of the beautiful content created by Julie Andem and the NRK in order of air/post date, in English, I’ve compiled it all here in easy-to-view, chronological order. I hope you enjoy!


Official statement from Hartvig Nissen on Tarjei winning Gullruten prizes:

Hurray and congratulations to the SKAM team who acquired several prizes last night at Gullruten. Apart from the fact that SKAM has created an impression that teachers at Nissen do not wear bras, then it is an honour for us at Nissen to be associated with the amazing universe that Julie Anden and NRK has created.

And when a student starts to win Gullruten prizes then it’s totally okay for the school to make an “Auntie-Gerd-speaking-to-the-confirmand”-speech:

So dear Tarjei,

We are proud of you! Your interpretation of Isak gets under the skin of even the toughest viewers and you deserve all credit and renown for your work with this character. Even though you have become everyone’s SKAM-Isak, you will first and foremost be Nissen-Tarjei for us. Thus, we hope you have noticed that you are going to a social studies exam next week. (Chapter 6, 7, and 8 in Fokus)

Once again: Congratulations!
