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.

By Ian Williams TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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 nave, 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skins 3 22 May 2009
Format:DVD
had not seen the series on the telly and was a bit nervous because of the new cast but it really is brilliant! I loved the first and second series and series 3 is as good if not better as them. Kaya Scodelario, Lisa Bakwell and the new cast are fantastic. The DVD extras are pretty good too!

Even if you haven't seen the previous two series it doesn't matter, you can still laugh, cry and have fun with the characters!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Acceptance 14 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
Once you accept the fact that the legendary old cast has gone you can begin to appreciate the humour and entertainment that still remains.
Yes it is different, but if you don't give it a chance then you're missing out.

New characters, fresh faces, interesting storylines and Episode 4 has to be one of my favourites throughout all 3 series. There's good and bad to every TV show, but this is such an original show it really can't be compared to anything else aimed at a similar audience.

I'm intrigued to see how the story lines develop and what the characters have to offer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor 21 July 2009
Format:DVD
After buying series 1 and 2 on DVD and enjoying it so much, I have to say that I am hugely dissapointed in the 3rd series. The characters lack any imagination and the same goes for the storyline- the entire series is based upon two boys competing for sex with one girl with a few side stories. Series 1 and 2 were so popular becuase they were (almost) realistic, however after watching this series you'll think 'that would never happen', 'that doesn't exist' such as an underground club they go into by opening a drain cover. Definately a dissapointment after how cool the first series was.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Let Down In Parts 14 Mar 2009
Format:DVD
Ok let me start off the review of Series 3 of Skins by saying something that has been bugging me, and that is the automatic assumption that Skins is for a late teens/early twenties audience only and that us oldies (I'm 36) won't like it or get it (believe it or not WE WERE YOUNG ONCE TOO!).

So on to the review, which to be honest is made with some episodes still left to air here in the UK (the most recently episode aired being Effy's).
Skins series 1 was the party, series 2 the come down afterwards if you like; the repercussions of everything that had gone on in Series 1, was brought to a close in series 2 abeit abruptly with the last episode leaving much unanswered.

The show's writers then made a bold move to replace the full main cast apart from Effy (Kaya Scodelario), and her friend Pandora (Lisa Backwell), a move which does seem to have worked well allowing them to bring in new characters; Cook (Jack O'Connell); Freddie (Luke Pasqualino), twins Katie (Megan Prescott) and Emily (Kathryn Prescott), JJ (Ollie Barbieri), Naomi (Lily Loveless) and Thomas(Merveille Lukeba)

And here in lies the problem with series 3, while replacing the cast as worked better than many (myself included) would have anticipated, with a very talented ensemble cast of young actors and actresses, however elements of the show are unbelievable (yes this may enhance the show but it is supposed to be a drama show, which is reasonably realistic to modern life and at times you are expected to extend believe far and beyond what is plausible) and this sometimes feels like the writers have gone to such lengths purely to differentiate between the current series and previous ones which is unnecessary.
