It was good for the first 2 series, the third was crap and this new series is really picking up... What I really want to know is during series 3, was Effy tripping hard when she hit Katie with the rock or was Katie actually saying all that stuff?

I watched a bit of the first season, and loved the characters. I have yet to complete it, however, I heard they changed characters a couple times, so whenever that kicks in, I'll probably stop watching it.

It was, I don't know if this is still the case mind, on channel 4 in the UK, it might haved moved to E4 though I'm not sure!
Its certainly no golf or sci fi show though lol, but I dont watch it so I can't divulge any information regarding skins plot points!!

03-02-2010, 08:23 PM
Its channel 4/E4 yeah. It's about teenagers in Bristol who get drunk and stoned alot and then have sex and party alot but there are a lot of important ethical and socioeconomic issues addressed as well.

It's a painfully scripted yoof-culture soap opera that fails in the spectacular way that all these shows do when middle-aged scriptwriters try and give teenagers clever and edgy things to say.

Eastenders owns this. At least that's funny-bad, rather than just bad.

My point is that there is no difference in content between this show and your average episode of Hollyoaks. This was in response to your claim that we could not compare Skins, a 'teen drama', to Eastenders, a 'soap opera'.
I argued that they are essentially the same thing and asked you to differentiate between the contents of an episode of either show.
You responded with, and I quote, 'DUHH BT 1 IS TEEN DRURMA & 1 IS S00P OPER0RZ SO U R DOWNS SYNDROME LOL ;) ;)'

Yeah it kind of sucks now, full of chavs that steal bikes every 2 seconds. No joke, there was a week once when about 6 or 7 got stolen, even one of my teachers. The stupid thing is the construction site is right next to the bike locks and they give out bolt cutters to the students who will just walk right outside and use them. Lucky they only go for mountain bikes and not bmx's these days so I'm ok.

Sorry for the off topic, some of my friends were extras on skins a few times, nothing big but pretty cool for the ones that are doing drama in college.

Michelle or Nips as she was called (April Pearson) from season one used to be good mates with one of my Ex Girlfriends, so on occasions when i went to partys with the ex low and behold Nips was there.

Sid from season one worked in Topman in Broadmead ;)

and lastly i saw Chris from season 1 at Ramshackle on a friday night, a different ex at the time saw him and was like "he's quite yummy" (we were both wasted) so in my drunkness i say to her "Why dont you go over there, fuck him and take his money, but give me some!" ...

Well yes, it is right, because i highly doubt someone has edited what Genre Eastenders and Skins both are, you say Skins and Hollyoaks are the same, well in Skins, i mostly see teenagers, and in Hollyoaks i see people of all age, in Skins i see drug usuage, sex, nudity, and volience, do you see that in Hollyoaks at 6:00PM?

You say that there essentially the same thing, even though to someone with the slightest intelligence, there obviously a different thing, so you are obviously retarded, but of course, you don't know what, because your retarded so how could you know..

The difference between Skins and a late night Hollyoaks is that a late night Hollyoaks would contain charaters of all ages when Skins is pretty much JUST teenagers, so no it wouldn't be like a late night Hollyoaks at all.

i reckon ....

* Cook gets caught by police and arrested

* Pandora says she's going away, so will go away somewere, perhaps with Thomas?

* Naomi and Emily are finished, Emily ends up with that new girl

* Dunno what will happen to Naomi, Emilys sister, JJ or Effy?

I enjoyed the first 3 series. In series 4 the guys started facing reality, 'growing up'.
Series 4 was a bit of a let down, due to the lack on excitement, but I still liked to watch it. However, the cliffhangar was absolutely unbelievable..

Doubtful. Other than the recast being a rather large indicator, the cliffhanger follows the same pattern as Sid's at the end of series 2. We've yet to find out if Sid found Cassie, and I highly doubt we'll find out whether Cook killed the psycho/Cook goes to prison.

Only really liked series 1 and 2 not so bothered about series 3 and 4. To me Skins is more of a once it's been done why bother again. Should just have left it after series 2 personally.

I love the original show. Not looking forward to the American remake, though. It looks like crap. AND MTV is sponsoring it? Nah.

After watching the first episode of season 5 it seems alot better than 3 and 4, nothing will ever beat 1 and 2, but could be watchable. will have to see how it developes.
However Skins Uk destorys the US one.

You're joking right? Im really not. 3 and 4 were dreadful absolute bollocks etc. spent 2 whole series (the whole of these character) about 2 people trying to get effy. I mean seriously WTF?!? tbh it may of been bad cause i compared it to 1 and 2 but yeah i thought they were bad and this seemed alot better (may be cause i love the metal guys)

I watched the US Skins with my fiancée out of curiosity, and I find the show pretty fucking stupid. I could only keep asking the same question over and over in my head. "What the fuck?"

Have yet to watch the original, but I've heard it's a lot better than the American version.

Ditto.

This series has been absolutely wank. I like how before the episode they give a warning about "violence, sex and drug use etc" and there hasn't been any of it yet LOL

The current series of Skins, is the worst series out of all of them.

That is all.

No just watch season 1-2. 3-4 were shit just about 3 people. on the plus side this season is about everyone so far. not just a couple of people

I thought it was just decent after series 2. But it could be worse, you guys could have the awesome(sarcasm) American adaptation :p

It was good for the first 2 series, the third was crap and this new series is really picking up... What I really want to know is during series 3, was Effy tripping hard when she hit Katie with the rock or was Katie actually saying all that stuff?


I know I'm behind but behold the power of www.4od.com!!! (http://www.4od.com!!!)
To answer your question, Effy was tripping hard when she hit Katie. & Katie knew she was tripping, so she was saying the things about the bugs just to freak Effy out. Aaaand it worked. Katie deserved it. :P

I love Skins. Got all 4 seasons on Netflix. And I'm contemplating watching the 5th season online, because I don't want to wait until it comes out on Netflix.

The re-made version for MTV, however...it's absolute shit. The actors...well, they can't even be called actors. It's just awful. And yet I watch it every week. *blank stare*

Series 4 onwards of Skins is absolutely terrible. The writing is just awuful and nothing in the show relates to me whatsoever. I'm a 'Normal' British teen and i don't have mental issues/sexuality problems nor am i a drunken drug user.

I can see the writer wanting to tackle some issues that teenagers might have. But every character seems to have a life of hell with problems here, there and everywhere. It would be easier to just shoot them.

I also noticed that from Series 3 each character has been given their own episode and it really isolates them. Series 1 & 2 focused on 1 character/episode but managed to pull it off and make them seem as a group too.

Misfits> Skins.
