Skins on e4

Skins is a controversial new British drama that deals sensationally openly with issues of race, drugs and sex amongst teens. It has been compared to Larry Clark’s Kids for its disturbing portrayal of youth culture. I haven’t seen an episode yet, but apparently it’s all the rage over there in the UK. You can check out some videos on the show’s MySpace page and also some partial episodes are available at Skins was such a huge hit in the UK, that it has apparently been renewed for a second series (read: season) of ten episodes. According to Wikipedia, the complete first series will be available on DVD from 3 September 2007 (UK date only?). No word on when the Soderbergh directed feature adaptation will come out.

  1. Skins is okay….i guess, but to compare it to the works of Larry Clark is a bit naive to be honest. It seems to try a bit hard to portray ‘disturbing youth culture’ and is probably trying its hardest to emulate something like ‘KIDS’ but fails on all fronts. It could be worse though. :)

  2. Because I find a program that is very well. I was entertaining and makes me happy and much more at that age because certain things happen often shown in skins.

    Not much English, so if you do not write well is why.

  3. i’m an italian teenager, here SKINS is transmitted until jenuary, so we’re only at the first season but…I LOVE IT…is full of drugs and sex but i think that is a great portrait of the young life

  4. Skins is my life. All you fuckers out there who dont like it are crazy in the head. Maxxie is sooooo fit. Tony is also. Its just such a cool show. I love everyone in it and it shows the 21st century teenage lifestyle. Its ace. =] X

  10. the next series is going to be centered around effy and her friends, all the rest of the original cast won’t feature. apparently they will be getting a new cast every 2 years because they only want to focus on the characters age 16-18 (sixth form time, not uni time). i did love the first series, but the second was a bit disappointing. maybe it’s just me who thought that though? x
