Reviews

Skins: the critically acclaimed drama about a group of pill popping, dope smoking, off the rails 17-year-olds, that’s a mixture of humorous, heartbreaking and sometimes shocking stories.

Tony, the most popular boy in town, a born leader, he likes a laugh and always at someone else’s expense – that was until he got hit by a bus and ended up in intensive care for six months.

Sid, forever lusting after his best mate Tony’s gorgeous girlfriend and even when he does fall for the total nutty but adorable and single Cassie, she moves to Scotland.

Michelle, quick witted and stunning she keeps everyone on their toes, except for Tony who runs rings around her, but would she really have it any other way?

Chris, the original party animal, always game for a laugh, he doesn’t need a family or a home as long as he has something to smoke, pop, screw and rob.

Super bright and sharp Jal, Michelle’s best friend, and talented classical clarinet player. But does that make her boring? Maybe it’s time she let her hair down.

Maxxie, the school sweetheart, can have any boy he wants and he wants most of them. He dreams of escaping Bristol to follow his passion of dancing.

Anwar’s family want him to study the Koran. Anwar likes tequila, dope, pills and breasts. End of.

Tony’s little sister Effy tends to keep her mouth shut, but gets up to more than anyone would care to know about, and she knows how to get what she wants too.

Dead posh, pretty and pumped full of prescription medication, Abigail, Michelle’s nemesis, lives in a world of imported carpets, private school and constant therapy.

Posh Kenneth offers us a rare mix of upper crust elocution and street bangin' language. What no-one knows is that the Big K is a big hit with the ladies too.

Sketch dreams only of Maxxie and in her world dreams do come true. Even if you have to force them a little.

I really liked the storyline and the characters of this series, especially the stunning performance of Hannay Murray as Cassie. Until i realized her there, it was just a nice series, but after her, it has become an addiction for me. The scripts are well-written in almost every episode and the music is great. Some episodes on DVD have different music tracks than the ones aired on TV (ex: Season2 Episode 9). That's the only thing i didn't like about this nice dvd set. I can understand if it was a 'law issue' but if wasn't, I surely can't. TV version was surely better in that manner.

DVD set has nice extras like the missing scenes and interviews. In addition, it has Radiohead(!) music at the background in menus. This might give you some idea for the quality.

I can recommend this item for anyone who enjoys good acting and smart writing. This might easily be the 'Friends' of England if they didn't change the cast completely after season 2. Still having hard time to believe it.

TV in Britain. We're stuck home watching genre busting magnificence like US drama The Wire. Where do we turn for some authentically UK goings on?

Bring on Skins. Every British kid who can remember being 16-18 in the last decade can recognise the characters in Skins, or at least can see clearly two or three people who that character is made up of. That age was emotional for us all, I'm sure. This series is an essay on that time, what it meant, and what it could have meant.

Skins blends brilliantly in and out of the authentic, and the comic, and the purely fantastic. The sad, and the hilarious - and the 'I don't know, but god I can feel it like it was yesterday'. I've never felt so close to a collection of characters.

Even in the bits that grate a little, this shines through.

Format: DVD
This show is just phenomenal and every episode with it's twists and turns and lighter comedy moments undercut with darker stories leaves the viewer feeling they have been on a televisual rollercoaster ride with the young teen gang.Oh and what a gang they are!

Leader of the gang Tony (Nicholas Hoult) is superb as the manipulative leader that makes things happen. Nicholas Hoult is a top young acting talent and I am sure it won't be long before he's back burning up our screens. Full marks to the others especially Hannah Murray who plays Cassie, Mitch Hewer who plays Maxxie and Joe Dempsey who plays Chris and the rest. It really is hard to single out the best performance after Nick as Tony.

If you have never seen Skins before then the two box set is the only way to go. Each episode is sort of stand alone concentrating on one of the main characters but there are also continuing threads and some surreal moments. Best way to enjoy Skins is to suspend beleif as to whether you are witnessing a dream sequence or reality and go with the flow that way you will soon understand where it's coming from.

Sadly the producers have decided to go with a completely fresh cast for series 3 but they will have some way to go to top this lot. Television doesn't get any better

Never crossed my mind that there was this kind of shows somewhere in the world.
Here (Mexico) the goverment don't let to this kind of things to be broadcasted under the foolish excuse to be "inmoral", "inadecuate" and therefore "ilegal" if there hasn't be edited in order to be suitable for the sanctimonious people.
And this model lies in the audience of the "open" TV. Even for the ones (including me) that have access to the restricted TV found some censorship here and there, and we think it'd be the same in other countries.
Fortunately I was wrong. Skins speaks about the adolescence openly, making feel yourself so alike to the caracters, with their troubles and doubts. That's a good show.

I first watched an episode of skins purely out of curiosity, and afterwards said it was absolute rubbish and I wouldn't watch it again. But then the next week I was curious again and gradually I became absolutely complusive about it. By the time the second series came out I was unashamedly plugging it to my friends.
Not every episode is great, but there are enough absolute stunners to keep your curiosity up. No matter how hardened you think you are it can be shocking, and no matter how prudish you will be fascinated. Mostly though it's just absolutely hilarious. And did cause me to cry on more than one occasion, and I'm not very given to crying at TV.
I'm not really a box set person but I think I will be buying this one. If nothing else, it makes my own friends' dramas seem manageable.

Beginning in 2007 Skins opened with a shocking and revitalizing looks at British youth culture with some highly dramatic and often funny statements about the mischievous antics under 18s get up to.

Myself just 21 know for a fact that many issues portrayed here such as heavy drug use, youth pregnancy and binge drinking are heavily active in a young person's life having witnessed friends and classmates go through many ventures in their lives. Anyone denying this as exaggerated teenage fantasy is naive.

This is a slap in the face of the world we are living in. A wake up call to those adults and parents denying the fall of youth to peer pressure. And whilst there is a heavy amount of controversy on display here there is plenty of action to.

The first series kicks off with about a boy star Nicholas Holt attempting a fiendish plan to get his best mate laid. The turn out at a fancy mansion spells trouble as we see rugs get ruined, a car in a lake and an attempt to get spliff sold in an attempt for Sid to keep his manhood intact.

The first episode is probably the best actually because it is so refreshing and consistently funny, when it shouldn't be. This is no American Pie style is it. Typical British humour that is no holds barred, truly brilliant.

The first series continues in the same vain, dancing around issues of drinking, sex and school that has plenty of comedy and drama and with a climax so dramatic you may just shed a tear.

The second series divides viewers. The consequence of being such a preacher is that it attempted more, splashing out on more society issues such as pregnancy, scholarship and parental influence that whilst important to take note, prevents the series from being as springy and joyous.
