Skins follows a group of teenagers living on the
bright side, who get high, get drunk, get laid
and get up for their A levels. These kids really
grab life by the balls and then give it a twirl.
One of the more impressive television hits of recent times, Skins burst onto TV screens at the beginning of 2007, and in short space built itself an impressive, dedicated following.
Skins is set in and around the lives of a group of friends who live in Bristol. In their late teens, and each at sixth form college, this compelling drama then follows the various problems and challenges that its characters face.
What stands Skins apart from many other shows that have tackled similar ground is the sheer down-to-earth of it. The first series dedicates its individual episodes mainly to a certain character each, although that doesnt stop the assorted story arcs of the others from building too. And amidst them all is some terrific acting, quality writing, and gritty, grounded drama, albeit not without humour.
Given the age of the characters within Skins, its clearly a show skewed towards a reasonably young late-teen demographic, and thats going to leave some who sample the programme a little cold. But theres still little getting away from the fact that this first series is some achievement, and the many who do embrace the show arent going to be disappointment by this terrific DVD collection. --Jon FosterSee all Product Description

Skins definately is worth watching, it really is not as trashy as it appears to be, or as it was presented as.Read more ›
The storylines are engaging, and while sometimes going into the realm of being OTT (but in a good way) they always seem to be based in reality.
The characters are a genuine mixture of friends, instead of the groups of clones usually found in TV land, verging from the lovable (Sid) not so much (Tony) and slightly unbalanced (Cassie).
This is one of the few programs where I'm yet to hear a single person say they dislike it. It has certainly replaced Shameless (1st + 2nd series especially) as being my favourite show.
Great acting, believable characters and stories, fantastic direction and a genuine spirit at its heart that makes you feel you are a part of the lives of these young people.
Most cleverly of all, it showed how all the young people were products of their backgrounds and upbringings and how they were actually more sane than their parents.
Can't wait to watch it again.
I have watched the show in and out every week and was impressed with the way that the writers established the characters and the storylines. In now its 8th week, the plot has thickened as we now watch the dangerous underworld that Tony is dragged into.
This is my favourite part of the story as it is Tony's realisation that he rally does love his ex-girlfriend and he has destroyed his relationships with his friends by the typical teenage antics.
While the acting of the supporting cast is at times quite shoddy and amateur, the main charcters really pull it together well and make it and understandable and inspiring show to watch.
The general feel of the programme is 'gritty' which is definately a good thing because I gather the producers wanted this programme to be as realistic as possible, and that it is! I think they did use real drugs on the production of this show; either that or all the actors are very 'experienced' lol.
This first series has an incredibly unexpected, dramatic, and emotional climax which will give you itchy feet until SS02, It almost brought a tear to my eye! And the 'musical ending' fronted by 'Sid' was a very nice touch.
If you didn't catch this on TV, and even if you did this is a must have.
There is no reason why people shouldn't like this, the only reasons I can think of is that they are offended by the [...]/drugs/nudity/language/truth, or perhaps their childhood wasn't very exciting so they feel they should hate it naturally (like certain people who leave blantent hate reviews for the sake of it - you know who you are!).
A series full of FUN - DRUGS - [...] - NUDITY - BAD LANGUAGE - DRAMA - FRIENDSHIP and loads more.
If you are cool - BUY IT
if you are sad - HATE IT
