Picking up six months after the end of Skins’ maiden season, this second series maintains the terrifically high standard set by the first. In its basic form a drama about teenagers, the trick to Skins is that it sidesteps the many, many clichés of the genre, and instead offers gritty, quite brilliantly written television.

What’s more, Skins is viewing that pulls no punches. By turns very funny, gripping and dramatic, it picks up the story of a group of under 20s in Bristol, dealing with issues of religion, sexuality and sex, among others. But it does this through a cast of three dimensional characters (each facing tough challenges of their own), suitably well realised by the primarily young cast. A selection of guest stars, including Harry Enfield, Bill Bailey and Shane Richie also appear.

But is the second series of Skins better than the first? Yes, not least because it’s willing to take risks, to evolve and darken the narrative a little, yet still remember to put its characters at the fore. It’s still a show that may baffle an older audience, but stands as a shining beacon as to what Channel 4 can achieve when it backs proper British dramas. Roll on series three. --Jon Foster

By Philipp
really enjoyed watching series I when I stayed in the UK for half a year; now I almost finished watching series II on dvd;

acting and story line improved compared to series I, but it also became much darker and sadder - so don't expect a feel good tv show - series II really can bring you down if you're in a bad mood.

don't get me wrong, it's absolutely worth watching and brilliantly done but I think it would have been even more fun to watch
with a stronger focus on the friendship with a bit less drama (People dying) and more funny stuff.

looking forward for series III although I don't know what to expect as they're about to swap the whole cast (which I don't think is a good idea as the old one is really really likeable and made Skins).

hopefully series III it will be less sadden :-)

for the meantime i'll continue with Shameless which is great too;

(sorry about my English but as I'm from Germany I can't do any better :-))

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent Drama 2 Sep 2008
I thought both series 1 and series 2 were excellent. At 50, I am not a teenager and wonder why this was classified as a 'teen drama'. Well acted, a little surreal at times. It showed me that teens today and are no different to when I was a teen-we got up to the same things. The series shows how life is not the doddle for teens that many older people seem to think.
From the end of series 2 it seems there might not be a season 3? Quite why anyone would follow my opinion I don't know but I would recommend this series to teens and elders alike. Great stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another raw dramatic outing for British youth 10 Jan 2010
By Stampy
After the groundbreaking controversy of the first series the teenage drama reprised in 2008 to bring yet more heartfelt drama to the programme.

The dramatic impact of the final stages of series 1 epitomised what the first series denoted, delivering the unexpected which is why it was so well received by viewers and critics. This series picks up a more soap styled vibe, concentrating on more character issues rather than the particular issues, which has its advantages and disadvantages.

The disadvantages are hardly huge in context. There is less humour, less dark controversy when we shouldn't be laughing. Perhaps because the issues this time around are more serious, which didn't seem possible given what happened a year before.

There is more focus on underage sex, drugs and drinking. This year there is an added incentive to these issues, including unexpected pregnancy, psychological illnesses and dealing with loss.

The power to which all of these are decoded is staggering. The weighing up of options for the pregnancy is hugely important and whilst in society it is happening more frequently than any of us would like to admit, the importance of the pregnancy is hugely significant in relevance to the story and characters.

The series one cast returned and what would turn out to be their final series. Appropriately so in many ways.
Jal (Larissa Wilson) is the stand out of this series, beautifully charismatic in the approach to her character's needs and decisions.

Sadly we see less of Dev Patel as Anwar but more of Maxxie (Mitch Hewer) and the intro to the first episode with his break dancing sequence is great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Go on.. have a skinful 27 Mar 2008
After receiving Skins series 1 for Christmas I couldn't wait for Series 2 to come along in February. It was worth the wait. The episode's in this series are overall very much darker. I have read several interviews and the cast have put that down to the fact that there is no need for introductions in this series. Which is fair enough really.. although several new characters have popped up from the series. There is Lucy aka Sketch who we were introduced to fully in episode 2 when we found out she was stalking Maxxie and of course Scarlette who we met in episode 4 (Michelle's episode) as Michelle's new step-sister - yes her mother's done it again.. re-married.

Overall a good series.

By D Jones
The words 'teen drama' carry a huge stigma with them. Most people will see it as something not worth bothering with. Shallow, fluffy, two-dimensional, lots of sex, drugs and booze and not much plot - at least, that was what I thought until I bought the first series on DVD and realised what I'd been missing out on. And if Series 1 was good, then so far, Series 2 is out of this world. Don't be fooled - this show is genius, giving even the most mainstream of quality television dramas a run for their money. Intelligently written dialogue, compelling storylines, well thought out and developed characters with depth and clever plot twists all contribute towards the making of this wonderful show. The critics have been falling over it and this is why. Only Skins could get away with a musical about Osama Bin Laden "blowing them away". Buy the DVD and fall in love with the show which continues to be underestimated by so many.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music changes, always a bad thing. 6 Jun 2008
By Paris
The season is great, but in the dvd edition they've changed some important songs like 'Time to pretend' from 1x10-"Everyone", or 'Hometown Glory" from 1x09-"Cassie".
That just sucks and it's the reason I give it four stars instead of five. I'll still probably buy the pack, but it will not be the same.
