TV series Shame. Austin season 1 watch online for freeHere is the American adaptation of the famous Scandinavian TV series "Shame". The Western version of the cult Norwegian project tells the audience about ordinary schoolchildren who study, communicate, make friends and enter the very age when the most important thing is not study, but personal relationships. The main characters of this project are teenagers, for whom it is important not only to understand their role in life, but also to find a person who is close in spirit. The first serious relationship, true love and incredible twists of fate await them. Let's see how the American authors will surprise the audience!
If you, like me, have not checked out a single remake of the Norwegian Scam and are considering watching Scam. Austin. then you will definitely like my review :)
From what I liked:
Firstly, there are significant deviations from the plot. It is really enticing. There is no feeling of revisiting the Norwegian scam, only with other actors. And I don’t like to watch serials :) This is one of the weighty reasons why, for example, a French remake didn’t come to me (and it was filmed like a carbon copy).
Secondly, the director of this version of the series, as well as the original, is Julie Andem. There is hope to see a worthwhile sequel, and find out, however, the character and life of the characters that were not revealed in the original version.
Well, now about what I personally don't like:
Firstly, the cast is just awful.
Maybe I'm not used to it yet. No, I have nothing against "natural" actors, real teenagers, and the game, like nothing ... But they don't go together !! Well, no way ...
Megan and Marlon (they are Eva and Yunas) - well, in general, they don't look like a couple. That's right, it hurts your eyes as they do not fit each other!
Grace (she's Nura) - *? No. "%. According to the original series, Nura is a gentle, petite and fragile girl with amazingly beautiful facial features ... What do we see in Austin? Grace looks like a brick. Well, that's true. Nura started to like it from the first minutes of her appearance in the series, Grace rather causes first shock, then rejection, then acceptance from despair mixed with disgust. There is something in common with Babi from "Three meters above the sky." I do not know how I will perceive and endure the season with her.
There is nothing to write about the rest.
The strange thing is that Isaac was divided into 2 ...) into a guy and a girl (I hope this is not related to his "serial" orientation?))))) Let's see what the writers wanted to say with this.
Secondly, the soundtracks are about nothing. The original shame struck with its musical accompaniment. Maybe that's why he so easily and quickly sunk into the soul? Everything is perfect, from track to track, from moment to moment.
In Austin, however, I either don't hear the tracks at all, or they just don't fit the moment.
For example, the episode where the girl Jos (a) hit Megan for a kiss at the spring ball well, nothing at all. Not that kind of sound is needed ...
In general, so far, these are all impressions :)
The remake is worth watching out of boredom rather than something mesmerizing and catchy.
The review was written after watching 6 episodes of the 1st season.
Hello to all those who read this review in the hope of finding out if it is worth spending your time on this series. This is not the first remake of the SCAM (SHAME) series, but also on the level. The beginning is different from the other versions, but it's even better!) In the Norwegian version, my favorite season was the second season about Nuru. We will soon find out if we can repeat the success. New heroes appear, or I just don't remember anything like that in the original. I hope that there will be other changes in the plot, but it will be interesting to watch. The musical accompaniment is simply gorgeous !!
