Hey guys :)

I found this norwegian show and I thought I should share it with you norwegian learners.

It's about the lives of norwegian teenagers in Oslo and every season there is a new main character. Each episode is released in clips during a week, and then it is all put together to form one episode.
I've only watched season 3, but I can say that the acting is great and the characters are very realistic.


You can watch it here on the official site: http://skam.p3.no/ (Norwegian subs available)

Here's the IMDB page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5288312/

(and if you want to cheat there are also eng-subtitled episodes and clips ;) otherwise I wouln't have been able to watch it )


PS: I think i'll start learning Norwegian because of this amazing show <3


PPS: Wow... I didn't know so many duolingoers watched skam :D

Jeg er ikke alene :')

I CAN CONFIRM THAT THE SHOW IS AMAZING AND I AM LEGIT LEARNING NORWEGIAN BECAUSE OF THE SHOW

Haha. I knew I would find something SKAM-related here.

I started learning the language because of the show. Now the show is ending, but I decided to keep going anyway, just so I could feel like the show was still with me. And Norwegian is a beautiful language.

Psst, it's not ending, just season three is finishing up. Season four is confirmed and will be coming soon. :)

Also, it is really a great show, and part of the reason I became interested Norwegian.

Yeah, thanks for correction. I know there's gonna a season four, but the end of season three feels too much of an end of an era for me, so.

Yep, it's just the end of season 3. There will come more. And I still have to watch season 1 and 2 :D

This show is my favorite excuse to learn Norwegian.

Thanks for the reminder. I'm pretty sure Isak's season would be the one I'm most emotionally involved with, though. But it's still great to watch more seasons. Hope I can understand more when I watch the clips when next season opens. For now listening is still too much of a struggle.

Learning Norwegian is a great escape for me from my troublesome life, haha.

I understand what you mean by being emotionally involved with season three. Season three is what got me into Skam because of the representation, and I didn't feel that connection with seasons one and two. It's still a really good show, I still liked one and two, but I definitely felt more of a connection to three, to Isak and Even. And I loved the LGBT+ and mental illness representation because for once, it was done right and for me, that was so good to see finally.

I can confirm that all my roommates watch this show. I would say it's fairly PG-13+, so I wouldn't recommend it if you're younger than that age.

I absolutely loved this show so far (and very curious to the final clips), and I was so thankful (and quite proud) that I could understand most of it without looking up the words in English. I did use subtitles though, but it was a great way to practice my Norwegian :) Also, it's about time it was mentioned here, hehe :P

The show is really popular in Sweden too and watching with Norwegian subtitles is great way to practice Norwegian.

PS. A side-effect is that drittsekk (❤❤❤❤ bag) has become a favourite pejorative among Swedish teenagers.

What bothers me is that the reason they don't do official English subs is because of music licenses, which I get, but if Simon Fuller has enough money to purchase the rights and produce an American version, he had more than enough money to help them be able to just do official English subs and keep their music. But where's the profit in that? Lmao, I am not happy about the American version.

This show is amazing. I discovered it as well as the language two months ago and I'm completely obsessed with it. I don't quite understand when they are talking but sometimes I watch a clip with the English subtitles and I surprise myself by understanding some words (and sentences). I think it's really good to learn something from a tv show because it makes the language more fun to understand (wish it was the case for me when I learnt German). I'm from France :-)

What is this show rated???

2 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/kovost
  • 15

  • 4

The opening of season two's first episode would lead me to think it's definitely rated at least PG-14, if not higher actually. It was pretty raunchy. And there is underage drinking (the legal age in Norway is 18 and most of the characters focused on are 16-17 right now) and drugs, but that itself isn't too bad and it's just weed so far. There's some shameless talk about sex and sexual acts, and there's tame sex scenes (but not an abundance of them or anything). All in all, I would think it's rated PG-14 because it's not quite wild enough to be rated TV-MA but it's not mild enough to be TV-G. It's a really good show though, so I'd recommend it if you're okay with the things mentioned.

It's rated 8.8 on imdb

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5288312/

If you're talking about age, well... There is a lot of drinking and some smoking. They are teenagers and they have boyfriends/girlfriends and stuff, but I haven't seen anything too explicit. (I've only watched season 3 yet)

But it's a great show worth watching if you have an open mind.

Hi guys! Does anyone have Norwegian subtitles to this show? Apparently the NRK website does not stream to foreign countries.

Do you know where people outside of Norway can watch it with Norwegian subtitles? I'm learning Norwegian bc of this show, and I've been learning for about two years so I would like to challenge myself by reading and listening to the language without English.
