Anyone watch skins?

Postby theoldlibrarian » Sat Mar 20, 2010 12:05 pm

In general I don't watch a lot of television but one day I saw an add for a TV program called Skins on E4 and I thought that an upbeat teenage kicks would be nice for a change.
I started watching the program at the start of the thirds series(different characters than 1 and 2) and yesterday I caught the final episode of the series about these characters.
It is about a group of teenagers growing up in Bristol and the hardships they endure. I would definitely recommend Skins to anyone.

Skins was alright when it started, but Misfits is better

The pair, who play Effy Stonem and James Cook in E4 teen drama Skins, dated during the filming of the third series of the show but split up last year.

Its surprisingly well directed, acted and written but if you start watching remember the 1st gen (series 1 + 2) is far more captivating than the 2nd Gen (series 3 +4). They also have another generation of characters in the pipeline.

*raises hand hesitantly*

Yes, I watch it. I used to have such a crush on Maxxie.

Sorry about my little outburst there. :oops:

I have seen the all and the first series is by far the best of the lot.

I liked the first two series much better than the third and fourth. Almost too much drama in the later ones xD

I still stuck in the third series. First one was great fun, the second was quite a bit depressing.

I had preordered series 4 which should be in the mail right now. I try to catch up on series 3 during some rainly autumn Sundays.

The first series was good and the second one was decent but then they changes all the actors for a new lot as they all left the show and then it good a bit boring and repetitive.
