SKAM, oh, SKAM. Originally a Norwegian show/webseries on Norway’s NRK network, it gained such a big following and was so successful that the creators… ended it? It didn’t make much sense until it was announced that every country with a film production company would be picking up the title SKAM and recreating the series in their own way with their own language, culture, and storyline. Currently, there are seven iterations of SKAM showing around the world, though only five of those have produced the LGBTQ+ season of the show. Honestly, the variations of SKAM do a much better job of representing and fixing some of the more problematic content in the original. The Spanish version, SKAM España, has Joanna and Cris in place of Isak and Even so more power to the lesbians. The German version, DRUCK, has trans FTM character, David, paired with Matteo. Italy, Belgium, and France copied the Norwegian model — a gay guy and a pansexual guy, both cis — but still made their own, beautiful stories. Can't recommend SKAM France enough. It's so gorgeous. Watch it, seriously. Watch season 3. I cry every time.
