Skins UK

I started Skins season 2. Its a different kind of complex from the first season of Skins. It deals with the bigger issues of today's youth like death, injury, homosexuality, divorce, forbidden love, best friends, first love etc. Beside for the heavy pill popping in season one, I see the parallels within my own teenage life and in my peers lives as well. The UK versions are much better than the US version. They're set in Bristol,UK. First season follows a group of kids in college  (which for US is like 10-12th grade up). They're close friends that get into trouble like any typical teenagers life. Seaon two follows the main male lead from the first season's little sister's life after he goes to university and she moves up to college. If you're looking for something to watch, its not half bad.

  1. Never was for all those teenage dramas. Got my own life to worry about, don't really care for some made up character's, especially if he/she is just living an average one ya know?

  2. Woo go skins uk- soooo much better than the US version. Is it just me or did mtv just make a REALLY tame version of the channel 4 classic?
    Oh and not to put a downer on it but the first 2 seasons are by far the best but now it seems to be going downhill. Fingers crossed it'l pick up in time for the movie :D

  6. So I've added s1 to my netflix queue, is it a reality show? Staged? A mix of both? Either way I'm intrigued...

    So true. Parts 1 and 2 were insane. American kids seem so tame.

    Its not a reality show. Its famous for taking new actors and new writers and letting them do what they want. First season starts a little slow, then it finishes beautifully.
