One of Skam's most interesting features is how the series is released. Much like the British TV drama \"Skins\", the show relies on revolving certain parts of the show around a specific character's point of view. Although, while Skins devotes episodes to specific characters, Skam devotes entires seasons to specific characters. In this set up, we follow one character throughout their journey of being a student in Nissen and the conflicts they experience with their friends, their partners, and their daily lives.
Season 1 (Original Air Date: 25 September, 2015) revolves around the character Eva and her relationship with her boyfriend Jonas. In this season, many characters are introduced including the main cast (Eva, Jonas, Isak, Noora, Sana, Vilde, and Chris) and recurring characters (Ingrid, \"Penetrator\" Chris, and William). Season 1 takes place during the fall semester in their first year at Hartvig Nissen. To read more on Season 1 click here.

@kissmeStarlight Awww... thank you for creating the thread for our boys, Isak and Even. I was actually looking for the thread in soompi when season 3 was airing but hey, we got one now. I always go and bother @kimchiflavored_plot whenever I wanna talk about SKAM. hahaha I'm sorry, Kimchi. Now we have a thread so we can come and fangirl here with other fans too.
Our protagonist begins the season as an insecure, deeply closeted teenager, dealing with self-identity issues and hooking up with girls to try and hide his sexuality. He is first drawn to third-year Even after seeing him in the school cafeteria, and he soon becomes central to Isak overcoming his struggles.
Perhaps one of the most important issues that Season 3 sheds light on is the one of mental illness. Although it is not known for most of the season that Even suffers from bipolar disorder, it is brought to the forefront of the plot, after he runs outside naked in the middle on a manic episode. Isak, hurt and confused by what happened, tells Even to stay away from him, in turn causing Even to shut himself off from him.
As the season progresses, Eva begins to make friends with a hodgepodge group of girls: Noora (Josefine Frida Pettersen), Sana (Iman Meskini), Chris (Ina Svenningdal), and Vilde (Ulrikke Falch). This friendship group becomes the heart of Skamfor the first two seasons.
Season 2 has Noora as a main character as we see her fall reluctantly in love with richboy William (Thomas Hayes). Season 3, the season that really saw the show exploding internationally, has Isak as a main character as he struggles to come to terms with his sexuality when he falls for new guy Even (Henrik Holm).
Perhaps most importantly: while Skam depicts issues that bring shame for many people, it never shames its characters for those things that are too often treated as shameful by society.
I stumbled across some of your notes I cant find again, think there was some title like ... \"blink and you missed it\" It was about Skam season 4 ... and some \" cultural background\" I think ... i loved it, but when i tried to look for different seasons i lost it all ... i cant find it again, not even season 4! ... so please PLEASE! let me know were I can find those notes/comments ... i want to read them all, if there are any, of course. :-)
Each season followed a different main character from the group of teenagers. The third revolved around Isak Valtersen, portrayed by 18-year-old Tarjei Sandvik Moe, who struggles to accept his sexuality when he meets a boy named Even (Henrik Holm) and gradually begins falling in love with him.
