I've seen the fist season and some of the second.  I loved the first, but Max said it gets really bad in the second.  I don't know, I kind of stopped watching.

it is bloody brilliant..... skins is currently back on our televisions with a brand new series.... it has a new cast but I think most people on here would appreciate it ( the coming out as a lesbian episode was wonderful)
btw skins series 2 was probably the best

I don't know if I like the new cast.
:\
It's a good show, though.
Even if the school seems to be the most unrealistic school ever.

I don't know....college for me was a bit like that at times.... I think it reflects that the writers all grew up in the 80s and 90s

...it kinda just comes across as silly a lot of the time though, regardless of where it's coming from.

That's true. I feel it's a tad exaggerated at times. Or I sit back thinking "man, I'm wasting my teenage years! I totally need to be getting high or something now. Why am I watching this and not outside with the cool kids?"
...Yeah, that.

It's SUCH a good show! I started watching it in... I think November. I watched all of seasons one and two online, and now I'm watching season 3 as it comes out ever Thursday. It's so fantastic! hehe...

I didn't lke the new cast either, at first, but they really grow on you.

And the second season isn't BAD I don't think, just really dramatic.

I LOVE Cassie, Sid and Chris in the first season, and I like Naomi, Pandora, Emily, Effy, and Thomas in the third.

I was hoping Effy would be a lot more with it too........ but I suppose that is the nature of teens, no matter how confident and in control they may appear, in reality they are just as fucked up as everyone else

i agree with audrey, no school i've ever seen would sit back and allow a student to light up in assembly, start a riot etc. i've no idea how naomi forgave the politics teacher so fast. creep. and i wish she'd start treating emily with a bit of respect. looks like she finally might.


effy pisses me off a bit in this season. i miss cassie.

I do like that Effy has more to her than she did in the first cast of skins. I could never quite figure her out, she shows more emotion in these ones.

I miss Cassie too, she was my favorite. 'Wow'

I watched the first two seasons, major love.
Incredible storyline and loveable character, truly incredible.

This season is a fucking disgrace.
JJ creeps me out
Cook is just repulsive in every way
Pandora couldn't be more annoying
Effie is a stuck up hoe
Emily, major denial (But she's probably the best one despite)
I have no problems with the other guy, the one from the starting scene.

i only watched the first three episodes, after seeing a 'hardcore gangster' be tough by eating chillies I lost all respect.
