3.0 out of 5 stars Out With A Whimper., 1 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Skins - Series 7 [DVD] (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.
