one thing i really appreciate about “later” is that everybody just unanimously agrees that percy didn’t walk of shame because? why would he? he has nothing to be ashamed about and is perfectly content spending what could possibly be his last night and last morning alive curled up next to vex
Mark 8:31-38 (NKJV) And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He spoke this word openly. Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. But when He had turned around and looked at His disciples, He rebuked Peter, saying, “Get behind Me, Satan! For you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”
When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”
What I think is behind Skam’s success is that it is a tv show that realistically represents a non-American culture. We are all used to American tv shows and through them we know American culture as well as our own;
Having an american version of Skam would totally ruin it. Do we really need another show about American teenagers and their problems? There are way too many already. That would be utterly boring and unoriginal to say the least.
a story: i showed a couple of my friends skam, bc its so amazing and they started watching it. but, they only watch it because they think that watching isak and even kiss is adorable. they dont care about anyone else, they even have said to me that they hate everyone else on the show bc they’re not gay. dont be this kind of person. skam is an amazing show that portrays real problems and has a great plotline. love the entire show, not just the ship.
okay but can we talk about how in any other tv show/film/literally anywhere they would’ve fucked it up? they would’ve made even commit suicide and isak arrive too late? or isak deciding he really doesn’t want mentally ill people in his life? just for the shock value? instead, this show is giving us a happy ending. there’s hope! lgbt+ kids get a happy ending! mentally ill kids also get a happy ending! it gets better! you’re not alone and you’re going to be okay! and that’s something that we don’t get to see in media nowadays and that i’m really glad skam managed to show us in the most perfect way
