Product Description

All 10 episodes from the third season of the Channel 4 comedy drama series that follows a group of teenagers as they struggle with highly-charged issues such as race, religion, sexuality, drugs, and food disorders. Living on the bright side, they are out to get high, get drunk, get laid and - hopefully - get up for their A levels. Episodes are: 'Everyone', 'Cook', 'Thomas', 'Pandora', 'Freddie', 'Naomi', 'JJ', 'Effy', 'Katie and Emily' and 'Finale'.

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 third series does way with the established characters of Tony, Maxxie, Sid and the gang, and introduces a whole new cast of angst-ridden teens. So expect plenty more bitching, backstabbing, and general bad behaviour in this, the complete third series.

Skins burst onto the screen on a wave of controversy and shone a light on the issues of teenage life in the late nougties. Fast forward two years and we meet generation two cocky balshy and trying a little to hard to be cool. It tackled good issues but at the same time lost the balance of mixing the serious with the fun and got a little too lost in itself resulting in two members of the gang going to Harvard. Even the death of one of the characters was diminished as it was way over the top and frankly stupid. It had it's moments and its characters but what made the first series work which was its ability to be relatable silly fun and serious all in an episode let alone a series was not there as it didnt quite have a direction or a strong enough set of Characters resulting in sloppy hap hazarded and heavy handed series.

Format: DVD
The third series of the popular British drama initially caused outrage as the cast from the first two series had been cast aside and were replaced with fresh new faces and new stories. I confess to belonging to that group; particularly as the second series had many unresolved questions but the realisation hit, that was how it meant to end, now let's see how this new series pans out, which was blissfully well.

The first episode begins with an "everyone" agenda, broadcasting all the stars and faces in a collective story. Freddie (Luke Pasqualino) skateboards around the streets of Bristol showcasing his talent. There are some very clever stunts and quick camera work to generate an intrigued view, the bit with the policeman is great. Right as we sit with the characters enjoying pints we know we are in for more of the same teen style life.

Then we're introduced to some of the other gang and as soon as Effy appears nonchalant in her dad's car the motive for the entire series has been set, three boys and one girl.

Speaking to friends and fans it seemed series two was respected but dived too much into a serious tone, a more dramatic realism. There wasn't one character who didn't fancy another main character kind of soap styled storytelling. I loved it but the humour certainly suffered because of its justification to high drama. Thankfully this series brings the humour back.

As Cook steps up in assembly to show everyone his tattoo his character is defined as is the cheeky styling of the show. In J.J's episode we have tremendous youthful humour in his magic and his constant revealing secrets. Freddie's episode with his sister is a brilliant mock up on reality television, a sharp parody of the formulaic drivel that is broadcast these days.

Firstly, I must admit that I am not usually a Skins fan-as a teenager, and student, I actually find the drug and promiscuity-related storylines to be TV at its lowest but, after hearing everyone at school talk about Skins 1 & 2, I thought I would give series 3 a go and, having watched it on television, 3 years later, I have bought it for £5.99 on DVD.

Admittedly, there are few things that appeal to me in the series, HOWEVER, there are a couple of storylines and pieces of casting in this series that are exceptional. Firstly, the character of JJ is one that draws the viewer in and makes them understand people with conditions such as JJ's more-something that I feel was perhaps intended by the creators and, certainly, is worth a considerable amount of praise. But that is just one thing.

The Naomi-Emily storyline (sometimes dubbed 'Naomily') is what has, undoubtedly, made this series what it is. The casting of all three actresses involved (both Prescotts and Loveless) is nothing short of fantastic and the storyline is captivating and beautifully told and really is worth repeat viewings. The stand-out episode is by far 'Naomi' and I am sure that there is not many who would argue with that.

Skins 4, however, destroys the good work that was created in Skins 3 and, therefore, if you love what Skins 3 represents then do not go for Skins 4!

Okay, this actually is a review of the DVD and was written after having watched it, rather than a comment on the series while it was running, unlike most of the other reviews currently available. Just thought I'd make that clear.

What makes Skins hangs on the quality of the characters and the ability of the actors to portray them. The series is very much character, rather than plot, driven unlike say the last thing I watched on tv -the first season of The Wire currently running on BBC2 (and worth a look). And, for the third season in a row, the production team have come up trumps. Before looking at them, it's worth mentioning that the girls are on the whole a very much more interesting lot than the boys.

My favourite of the lot is one whom many people might find one of the most irritating -Pandora. She's naïve, innocent, awkward, overly full of enthusiasm, cleverer than she seems but that isn't hard, sweet, and all too aware of her failings, Lisa Backwell does a simply brilliant job of portraying her and her soft warm rounded voice and accent help a lot. I can imagine Backwell in a Victorian drama (Austen, Bronte, etc), her fresh-faced enthusiastic innocence fitting perfectly -casting directors please note.

Naomi, played by the wonderfully named Lily Loveless, is highly intelligent, introspective, vulnerable, defensive, with a good line in sarcasm and aggressive humour, and is confused by her feelings towards Emily. Without wanting to give anything away, by the series end you feel that her story is only really just beginning and she could be the stand out character of Season 4.

Katie and Emily are identical twins and anything but identical in character.
