Does anyone still watch Skins?
anyway, nah, it's shit. it annoys me as well that they get extras from like Kent and places for like a day, when they might as well just get some kids from Portishead or somewhere. (DISCLAIMER: I don't know what I'm talking about, and don't particularly care either)
so welll done to them. mental!
I still watch Skins, the last 2 series weren't as good as the first two series but they definitely grew on me and were good.
This new cast looks dull and bland, where are the interesting hairstyles and outfits? They're the most bland looking group of teenagers ever.
characters = selves
it's a saturday night, i'm in again. and wanted to make a cynical statement about the way despite the idea that stuff LIKE skins looks like a levelling of the playing-field, you've still got to go through the normal channels etc. to be cast in a 'character' kind of role. not that's neccessarisly a bad thing, and i'm sure it's same for Rome Open City so my point has collapsed in on itself.
but you're not really adding anything to the thread and you seem pretty anti-Skins regardless so I don't see the point in posting replies in here if you've got nothing to say about the show other than "I don't like it".
what I like(d) about Skins is all the "crazy" adventures they get up to shagging around and taking drugs and things. Cook singing Barry Manilow, that sort of thing. I stopped watching about 3 episodes in from the last series because they all were so moody all the fucking time.
I'm a bit sad there appears to be no lesbian twin but you can't have that every series, a bit gimmicky I guess.
the first episode of series 4 was so boring, I very nearly gave up watching it but I stuck it out and I've watched series 4 twice and I do really like it.
like... hollyoaks bad. Worse.
Kaya Scadalario...or however you spell her second name, annoys me so much. I think she's a decent actress but she clearly thinks too much of herself.
which stopped me from watching it. I'm not saying it was boring or shit or anything, in fact I thought it was written and acted very well but when I watch Skins I just like the blissful fun they all seem to have, I don't want to watch it for the "issues" and things.
I'll probably get round to watching the rest of it at some point. Also maybe it's a pattern they do with Skins, have the first series with a new cast all fun and carefree, second series getting into the "drama" a bit more.
Anyway my point being I reckon the new series will be alright, loads of fun, falling over on mephedrone etc.
I'd rather see a new series of Misfits before Skins, now that is actually brilliant.
Skins is at it's best when it's funny. The drama is good, the issues etc are interesting at times but it's not worth watching without humour.
The scene is series 1 where Chris climbs inside the wardrobe and it promptly topples over and he smashes through it to get out again, surprising Tony and Sid, is just hilarious.
so over the top but it sort of worked. Those Nu Rave psychos, ha.
but it was so odd. That entire episode with Tony seeing people who may or may not have been there, it was all a bit heavy for me.
But they all look far too nice, and they sound like twats in the "find out more" bit.
I absolutely hate Scottish accents in films/on tv/on the radio, particularly female ones. I don't know why, they just sound so phoney.
Everyone was in love her before the show even started. "OOH, SHE'S OCD AND ANOREXIC AND MENTALLY IMBLANCED. I'M IN LOVE WITH HER, LIKE PROPER SERIOUSLY IN LOVE WITH HER".
She's the most annoying, contrived character i've possibly ever seen on tv. Its not possible to find her character attractive, surely? SO miserable. Miserable ain't cool
the blonde one is even worse though! And not in the least attractive either, or even slightly cool.
Then I won't have to use the internet or pretend to be interested in people.
i just don't want to watch teenagers having lots of sex and doing drugs when at that age i was just getting stoned and complaining about a lack of women
(disclaimer: didn't even click)
Perfectly acceptable. Nice to have a Scot in the mix too. Now just look forward to the requisite BANGIN TUUUNES to feature
"I've been asking for years to get a part on Skins because I've always loved the series and wanted to be in it. Finally this year I'm old enough to play a part!"
Translation: I was in a film with Nicole Kidman, Daniel Craig and Sam Neill. What happened to me?
Was vaguely involved with the HDM filming and I just can't see it from her.
I keep watching it because I was such a fan of the first two seasons but it seems to get worse and worse.
I'm actually surprised they decided to do a 5th season I'm hoping though it's a bit more than SEX DRUGS WAHEEEEY though.
isn't that the point?
4 eps into S1. Watchable enough.
they all looked nice and normal....not trying too hard.
i guess now they're gonna have topshop take a big steaming dump on them
but the end of series three with them sailing off in the boat soundtracked by Deerhunter was a beautiful moment
Obvs until he can't see the screen through his film of spaff.
