4.0 out of 5 stars The Final Farewell to Skins [Without Spoilers] 12 Aug 2013
Format:DVD
When Skins first came to our screens in 2007, it was met with acclaim from not only critics, but also its cult following. After 6 years and a few sub standard series, we are left with the return of some the programs most complex and loved characters, Effy, Cassie and Cook. Before I delve deeper into each of the 3 films, I think it's important to keep an open mind about what will happen, it is ultimately very different to Skins.

Here is a list of some of the negatives:

1 - Those who have been waiting for some of the answers that were, to this point, left ambiguous at the end of series 2 & 4 might be disappointed. This is probably one of the things which has split most Skins fans, as it doesn't seem to have given us the closure to each character. Instead, we are left to imagine what has happened to the characters in the 3-5 years that they have been off screen. I guess you say that this is to keep realism within the show, as we don't always talk about what has affected us in the past, but I think it feels like a bit of a wasted opportunity. It was after all what the audience would have wanted, especially those of us that have remained loyal to the show for all these years. Only Skins Rise is in my opinion successful in answering what happened after the maddening ending to series 4.

2 - The hedonism of the first 6 series has been replaced by a more adult and darker tone. I appreciate that the characters might have grown up, but this change in tone makes it seem completely different and not as compelling as the show we all grew up to love. Adult life is not as bleak and depressing as they make it out to be, it kind of feels like they sapped out all the fun from the show.

4.0 out of 5 stars cooks episodes were the best. 12 Aug 2013
Format:DVD
dont agree with the person who gave this series 1 star i see there points but cooks episodes alone make this dvd worth it. fire is much better than Pure as it has a plot the only downside is the naomily ending but it is done well overall this series is not about closure it is about seeing how the characters have changed and matured as adults.

3.0 out of 5 stars Out With A Whimper. 1 Jun 2014
Format:DVD
There are few resolutions if any to previous stories and plot strands. These are 3 standalone stories documenting three of Skins most popular characters. In some ways it has worked there is a lot of self reflection, soul searching and ultimate redemption for our 3 hardcore partiers. But in other ways it's a misery fest with a lack of story and resolution. *spoiler* for Naomi to die felt pointless and awkward. After all the trials tribulations it seemed shoe horned in for emotional gravitas without really considering the stories original origins and the reason why it was so loved and worked. They had their struggle and Naomi was already in a poor place to begin with. Cook was ultimately the best true to himself and character but coming to terms with himself and actually realising that all things have consequence. Cassie's story was a massive let down just completely poor.

But in terms of characterisation it worked beautifully. Effie finally understood like Cook all things have consequence and growing up isn't moving away but taking responsibility for ones self. Cassie found peace and contentment and a home and family and leanred that she was needed as much as she needed anyone else.

So in choosing 3 characters to document it worked in some ways. We don't all stay in touch with those we spent our youth with but neither when they leave are all things resolved. This was about growing up and maturing into adulthood and leaving the hedonism behind. Poetic as Skins was about the youth and it's culture but as that passes so does the show.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better untouched 20 Aug 2013
Format:DVD
Personally, I feel that all three character's stories wrapped up pretty nicely at the end of their respective series. I think this series just opened up some more holes (I don't want to give spoilers, so I won't give specifics). Personally, I don't think this series wrapped anything up for the entire show, seeing as all the characters mentioned haven't been on the show for 3-5 years.
