4.0 out of 5 stars At First It Seemed That Skins Had died.......
But on closer reflection it seems that some fun has finally been injected back into the series i found the last two skins series rather dour and all to serious and the cast never worked as an ensemble but rather as individual sects of the same whole. So okay series five at times did feel a little over the top and did try desperately at first to be like the original cast...

1.0 out of 5 stars ... both sets the first and second DVDs work absolutely fine, but the third DVD in each set does ...
I recently ordered series 5 and 6 from this seller and in both sets the first and second DVDs work absolutely fine, but the third DVD in each set does not work, it won't even load. I am very annoyed because now I can't watch the end of either season. not happy.

But on closer reflection it seems that some fun has finally been injected back into the series i found the last two skins series rather dour and all to serious and the cast never worked as an ensemble but rather as individual sects of the same whole. So okay series five at times did feel a little over the top and did try desperately at first to be like the original cast but as time wore on the characters were allowed to breathe and the stories shine and actually the cast worked here as an ensemble with everyone taking into consideration their differences and being adult enough to accept them and move on and the final was actually a finale for once rather than effy feeling depressed and acting weepy in the corner. So all in all it may not be skins of old but it is definitely more fun and vibrant than the last two series which required a prescription for Prozac and therapy after each episode.

Very good series once again only saw the first couple of episodes but from what i have seen i think this series is only gonna get better people are still saying this isn't as good as the first series but thats because the first series was brand new and we weren't use to it even the second series of skins wasn't as good as the first but still that series was wicked same as this one very good new set of characters same as with all skins lots of sex drugs violence and fantastic scenarios this deserves 5 stars absolutely epic

4.0 out of 5 stars skins season 5, 17 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Skins - Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
Characters are not as enticing as in previous seasons. There is less "under the skin" tension. It seems to me to be a little more forced and therefore less gripping. For example i find Mini too "gossip girl" and stereotyped. I also find it difficult to believe the Frankie character: she is too stylish and her background as a bullied student seems artificial. However, it is a fascinating series and i am glad they continued with additional seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy, optimistic and exciting, 12 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Skins - Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
I loved every series of Skins, this one is the only series that left me a positive energy and joy after the final episode. All characters evolve and change for the better, soundtrack is at its best, as photography and direction. A general dissatisfaction might depend on the fact that a new generation starts for the second time and it's always a bit difficult for some nostalgics of the previous characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge it by the first two episodes!, 11 Feb. 2011

This review is from: Skins - Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
I must say I am completely eating my words! This is the second review I have left for this, and I am proud to say I am wrong! I did not like the beginning of this series, at all! However we are now nearing the end of this series and it really has vastly improved. The acting has got better and the writing is back on top form, still the worst series when it comes to Skins but a still a very good series!

Ok so its not as good as the previous seasons but i think once season 6 comes out i'll love the characters. The music is amazing!! Cant wait for season 6!!! Also one more thing, there are only 8 episodes, which definately is not long enough. I gave it 4 stars cause u cant beat series 3-4!

5.0 out of 5 stars Haters are just stupid, 14 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Skins - Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
Lets review the difference between Generation 1, 2 & 3 shall we. Generation 1&2 spend their whole life on drugs, which they seemingly have endless money to pay for. In series 4, Emily moved out of her house and lived with Naomi whose mother was where? Where'd they get the money to live together? In series 2, Tony went to a uni open day where there was a weird girl who knew everything about him and was not relevant to anything.
There were elements of series 1-4 which were so unbelievable that it was just escapism. Ask yourself how many 16-18 year olds live that way. Then compare it to this season. Apart from [SPOILERS] rich and Grace's 'wedding' which I have yet to see which will go ahead anyway, its been farrrrrr more realistic. so what if Franky looks like a boy, or Mini is a typical bitch, these stereotypes do exist. As for the people hating on Rich, I find him and Alo the most realistic people in it. I have met people like Rich who think their music is so elite and amazing and refuse to accept anything else. Watch more than one episode and keep an open mind. Its a lot more down to earth than previous series and in my opinion, this makes it a hell of a lot better.

This one seamed to move away from the first series as the actors nearly all changed, however you soon accepted all the new characters and it was entertaining once again.

Was happy to find this available on here as most shops don't sell this. I liked watching the series on tv so was happy to get this to rewatch whenever I like.
