Synopsis

Channel 4's critically-acclaimed drama follows the angst-ridden lives of its teenage characters, as they grapple with issues of race, religion, sexuality, drugs, and eating disorders. Skins' portrayal of these characters as poster children of the hedonistic lifestyle is unflinching in its candour. The first two series established the characters of Tony, Maxxie, Sid, Michelle, Cassie, Anwar, Jal and Chris. As well as introducing us to Bristol's Roundview College; their home away from home. The third series saw a new cast enrol at Roundview; JJ, Naomi, Emily, Katie, James, Effy, Freddie, Pandora and Thomas. Then in 2011, Franky, Mini, Liv, Grace, Alo, Rich, Nick, and Matty became the third generation of Skins sixth formers. So expect plenty of bitching, backstabbing, and general angst-ridden behaviour in this, the complete first to fifth series.

Advice for Laila Collman and other Americans about PAL DVD's: You can get a universal DVD player for under $100 from a number of internet dealers. These players play any DVD on earth. I have one, and it plays all of the DVD's I buy from the UK perfectly. Once you get a universal player, do a restore on your computer, and you will be able to play American DVD's again on your PC.

As for the series, it is priceless. Saucy, funny, but quite human. Certainly worth owning in the five-season set, which this website offers at an incredibly cheap price today. Five whole seasons, including special features, for around thirty bucks U.S. Amazing.

By the way, I just received my latest order from Amaz*n UK this afternoon. It took only TWO DAYS from London to Memphis, Tennessee. Also amazing.

Really it's the perfect box set ever! Gathering together the 5 seasons of Skins, The best seasons for me are the 3rd, 4th and 5th but still, the first two seasons are awesome as well. Anyway, Skins is an amazing series and I recommend this box set!

Disc 2 and 3 in season 3 does NOT work on older DVD players.
Shows garbled images only. The OTHER discs, season 1-5, DO work fine though.

(probably because those particular 2 discs do not follow the DVD standard coding or whatever ?? Weird.)

They do work on newer versions of VLC though, so probably not a problem for most people...

I love Skins, it's British TV at it's best and I've been a fan from word go. Some people prefer the earlier seasons but I have loved every group and this DVD is a fantastic price for old and new fans alike. Buy it you won't be disappointed. And don't forget to buy season 6 too. Buying the two together is still cheaper than buying the 1-6 box set.

This is definitely the best set of DVDs I own. I love re-watching, analyzing, and sharing these brilliant and artistic episodes over and over.

However, my only critique with this product, is that these DVD's are region 2 encoded, and I live in America (region one) so I had to change my laptop's setting (which can only be done a total of FOUR times) so that I could watch skins on it, but now I can ONLY watch Skins, which is honestly frustrating when I want to watch something else and CAN'T. This system of technology needs to be changed; I'm an authentic customer and this is highway robbery/tyrannic greedy capitalism!
But, aside from that minor injustice, this product is FANTASTIC!
