It's the Japanese adaptation of Ronja, isn't it?
That's right, your turn.

I had the film version in the movie quiz a while back. It's a wonderful book.



For this one, I want the original title.

Nobody watching this? Hint 1: It's British. Hint 2: You may have seen the actress playing the main female role in a certain superhero show.

Not sure what's making you think it's a soap opera. No, you're on the wrong track.

Another hint: It was canceled after one season/series, but then someone else bought the rights, retitled it (very much for the better!), and made it enough of a success that it was revived and is now up to Season 3.

:-\

No, but apart from that being an American series, it's a little closer, I guess.

New screen when I'm by a computer...

Well it did get one British season (of four episodes) before being cancelled and redone as an American series for two seasons.
So it seemed like a good fit.

Skins?

Fair enough, though those were really just two separate adaptation attempts (I wasn't even aware of the British one) rather than the same series being revived.

Skins?

Nope, but again getting closer.

Hmm, did not expect this to be so difficult, given that the last screenshot shows all the main characters clearly.

I had to edit out the actual title of the show in this shot, which is something of a clue in itself:

Really, no one has seen this?



Time for some last-ditch hints, I suppose:

-It's a Netflix show now, originally it ran on Channel 4
-It's a rom-com/sitcom set in Glasgow (though I don't think any of the main cast do the accent)
-You might recognize several members of the cast in the last few screens from Misfits

And if that's not enough...

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
The poster in the screenshot above this one is a major clue.

Correct!

It's a good series: funny and quite sweet, with a neat flashback structure. Since nobody seems to have heard of it: A chronic romantic is diagnosed with chlamydia, and has to contact all his past sexual partners to tell them to get tested. As he awkwardly reconnects with his exes, the show looks back at each relationship, gradually filling in the history that has brought him and his friends to where they are today. Sort of similar to (500) Days of Summer or How I Met Your Mother in concept, but done in a much more low-key and British way.

It takes a couple of episodes to quite find its feet (these screens are from ep. 3, the first really good one), but I would definitely recommend it, and I'm surprised it didn't ring any bells around here.

"Scrotal Recall" was just a terrible title, though. Completely misrepresented the tone of the show. Lovesick still works as a pun and fits much better.

Scrotal Recall is an obvious case of thinking of a title and building the show around it.
