Embarassingly I love it., 15 Jan. 2009
I first watched an episode of skins purely out of curiosity, and afterwards said it was absolute rubbish and I wouldn't watch it again. But then the next week I was curious again and gradually I became absolutely complusive about it. By the time the second series came out I was unashamedly plugging it to my friends.
Not every episode is great, but there are enough absolute stunners to keep your curiosity up. No matter how hardened you think you are it can be shocking, and no matter how prudish you will be fascinated. Mostly though it's just absolutely hilarious. And did cause me to cry on more than one occasion, and I'm not very given to crying at TV.
I'm not really a box set person but I think I will be buying this one. If nothing else, it makes my own friends' dramas seem manageable.
