Advertised as "Better than Skam!". Is it? Result: "No."
I loved Skam, so when I repeatedly stumbled on Lovleg and claims how it was new and better than Skam, I was both thrilled and sceptical. When something is described as "better than the other one" it's never a good sign. And I should've listened to that tiny, sceptical voice in my head.
I couldn't even get through the first episode. The show seems to ride only from one awkward scene to another, the lead actress is no way even remotely close to being 15 as her character, and it was such a pain to watch. When I found myself constantly fastforwarding the ridiculously awkward, nowhere near "like in real life" scenes, I finally let this one go when the first episode was around 2/3 in.
I can handle some funny, awkward moments, but in Lovleg they're so stretched and not in any way relatable. Which is a bit weird, since I remember reading from somewhere that Lovleg was supposed to be "more realistic" than Skam. True, Skam had certain polished world, but the scenes and characters were well written - not in Lovleg.
So, sorry, but 3/10 for me. I really wanted this to be another enjoyable show with characters I could fall in love with, too bad it didn't happen.
