.Skins is a British teen drama that follows a group of teenagers in Bristol, South West England through the two years of sixth form.^ I've waxed ecstatic enough about the British teen drama since it launched Stateside last year, but I have to say that I enjoyed the series' sensational sophomore season even more the second time around.

^ Fast-paced and full of angst-ridden fun, this British drama is based on a group of Bristolian teenagers and their personal struggle with highly-charged issues of race, religion, sexuality, drugs and food disorders.

.The controversial plotline explores issues including narcissism, dysfunctional families, personality disorders, substance abuse, sexuality, teenage pregnancy, disability, and death.^ Channel 4's critically-acclaimed drama follows the angst-ridden lives of its teenage characters, as they grapple with issues of race, religion, sexuality, drugs, and eating disorders.

Cast and characters

First generation

The first generation of Skins characters. From left to right, Cassie Ainsworth, Michelle Richardson, Tony Stonem, Sketch, Anwar Kharral, Sid Jenkins, Chris Miles, Jal Fazer, and Maxxie Oliver.
.Tony Stonem (portrayed by Nicholas Hoult) is an attractive, intelligent and popular boy.^ Tony's a smug little bastard, but as played by Nicholas Hoult (Hugh Grant's kid sidekick from "About a Boy"), he's a very recognizable one.
  • Sepinwall on TV: 'Skins' review | New Jersey Entertainment - TV & Film - - NJ.com 23 September 2009 2:24 UTC www.nj.com [Source type: General]

.His manipulative ways often go unnoticed by many, and are a catalyst for the majority of the events in the series.^ Plus series both of books and TV often develop as they go along, starting more episode-orientated and becoming steadily more series-orientated.

^ Of course, there are many different ways to write a series as far as continuity and long-term plotting go.

.Sid Jenkins (Mike Bailey) is Tony's best friend, but has an entirely opposite personality.^ Hannah Murray brings a sad yet funny, ethereal quality to Cassie, and Mike Bailey is so likable as Tony's hapless best friend Sid (who harbors a crush on Tony's girlfriend that even the girlfriend knows about) that it becomes clear why he keeps getting so much screen time in other characters' episodes.
  • Sepinwall on TV: 'Skins' review | New Jersey Entertainment - TV & Film - - NJ.com 23 September 2009 2:24 UTC www.nj.com [Source type: General]

^ Though the lead character is the good-looking, opportunistic Tony (Nicholas Hoult), much of our sympathy lies with the show’s designated nerd, Sid (Mike Bailey).
  • The Watcher: 'Skins' is a racy and revealing Brit-style 'Gossip Girl' 23 September 2009 2:24 UTC featuresblogs.chicagotribune.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

He lacks confidence, is socially uneasy and struggles with school work.
.Tony's girlfriend is Michelle Richardson (April Pearson), a beautiful girl who can never stay angry at his mischievous behaviour for long.^ Asia, the angry-girl-from-New York-who's-got-a-young-daughter-she's-doing-this-all-for that we hear about every episode, tells Melissa what a fake she is.

Outwardly, Michelle appears shallow, vain and conceited but she works hard and is emotionally mature. .She is friends with Cassie Ainsworth (Hannah Murray), a positive and cheery girl who attempts to hide her struggles with mental health.^ Complicating matters is Sid's own girlfriend, the spacey Cassie (Hannah Murray), who has moved to Scotland and seemingly embarked on a journey of sexual exploration.

^ Jules // 4/13/2009 Hannah Murray, who plays Cassie, will be in the film WOMB which also stars Eva Green and Matt Smith.

.Her flamboyant parents ignore her in favour of their new baby, and her eating disorder goes unnoticed for some time.^ Comments Greg Mitchell New TIME Cover on Glenn Beck Ignores...

Chris Miles (Joe Dempsie) is the party animal of the group. He has a difficult home life; he lost his brother to illness at a young age, and is an emancipated minor due to his ambivalent father and absent mother. .He has a crush on his psychology teacher Angie (Siwan Morris).^ Perpetual screw-up Chris (Joseph Dempsie) attempts to get over his love for teacher Angie (Siwan Morris) and falls for the level-headed Jal (Larissa Wilson), in one of the season's most tender stories.

Jal Fazer (Larissa Wilson) is a sensible girl with a talent for playing the clarinet. Her runaway mother has left her to live with her famous musician father and aspiring rapper brothers.
.Maxxie Oliver (Mitch Hewer) is an openly gay character who loves to dance and, unlike most gay teenagers on British television, is still considered "one of the lads". His best friend Anwar Kharral (Dev Patel) takes a pick-and-choose approach to Islam, and has no qualms indulging in pre-marital sex, alcohol, and drugs.^ (Most of) The characters were so loveable, especially Chris, Sid and Maxxie, and the actors conveyed them so well that I really felt myself feeling their emotions.
  • Skins at TV.com 19 September 2009 6:06 UTC www.tv.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ Back at home, the friendship between Anwar (Dev Patel) and Maxxie (Mitch Hewer) hits the skids when their camaraderie is invaded by the malevolent presence of stalker Sketch (Aimee-Ffion Edwards), a girl so desperate to claim gay Maxxie for her own that she stalks him and attempts to bed his friend Anwar just to be close to him.

^ While, yes, The Office proved that you can successfully adapt a British television format for US television, it seems that no one was paying much attention to the recent crop of botched attempts like Viva Laughlin, The Thick of It , and The IT Crowd .

As well as the regular cast, there are several important recurring characters. .Effy Stonem (Kaya Scodelario) is Tony's younger sister, and shares many of the same qualities as him.^ Effy is Tony's sister.

She is mysterious and manipulative, but almost mute, she regularly breaks the fourth wall. Abigail Stock (Georgina Moffat) is Tony Stonem's mistress, a posh school girl with psychotic tendencies. "Posh" Kenneth (Daniel Kaluuya) goes to the same college as the main cast and often found spending time with the boys. Madison Twatter (Stephen Walters) features as Sid's emergency drug dealer, Doug (Giles Thomas) is a senior teacher at Roundview College, and British comedian and co-writer Josie Long appears as the college's careers counsellor.
.The central cast's parents are often played by well-known British actors credited in a guest starring role.^ Starring on one of TV's hottest series is an actor's dream, and Isaiah Washington fought hard to keep his role as Dr. Preston Burke on "Grey's Anatomy."

She is innocent to the sexual and narcotic world in which Effy indulges, but is ready and willing to explore it. Thomas Tomone (Merveille Lukeba) is an immigrant from the Congo, with a morally upright outlook and good-hearted nature.
James Cook (Jack O'Connell), Freddie Mclair (Luke Pasqualino) and JJ Jones (Ollie Barbieri) have been best friends since childhood, known as "the Three Musketeers". Cook is charismatic and sociable, but boisterous and not afraid of authority. His womanising drives many of the events in the series. .By contrast, Freddie is an easy-going skater who likes to smoke weed, and as the more sensible and responsible friend, he is often put out by Cook's behaviour.^ After all, the final 12 are the ones who go on tour, get the huge exposure and more.

^ Uchenna worked like a machine loading the fish, putting his team out of there first.

^ While I don't like bunching points, I think that put some teams so far behind the pack leaders that an extended bunching point will be needed to get the teams on a bit more even basis.

JJ's Asperger syndrome makes it difficult to fit in socially, but he has learnt to use magic tricks to make friends. .His friends view him kindly but with a degree of amusement, and sometimes irritation, but he knows Cook and Freddie will always take care of him.^ You know, that's what I always got from him, too.

Katie (Megan Prescott) and Emily Fitch (Kathryn Prescott) are very different identical twin sisters. Quietly insecure Katie thinks of herself as something of a WAG and wants to usurp Effy's place as queen bee of the group. .Her homophobia causes problems with her sister Emily, who is coming to terms with her identity as a lesbian.^ The man who would cause carnage - Spider-Man comes face-to-face with serial killer, Cletus Kassidy.

The quieter of the two, Emily is used to being the shadow of her sister, and is sulky but perceptive. She hugely admires Naomi Campbell (Lily Loveless), a fiery, politically-charged passionate young woman with idealistic views and an abundance of ambition.
.Other characters include Karen McClair (Klariza Clayton), Freddie's sister who is desperate to become famous.^ The Group Includes A Gay Character (Maxxie), A Drug-Taking Muslim Character (Anwar), A Girl With An Eating Disorder (Cassie) And A Boy Who Is Desperate To Lose His Virginity (Sid).

[3] Mackenzie Crook guest stars as Johnny White, a psychotic Bristol gangster with comedians Jordan Long and Justin Edwards as his inept henchmen.[4] Ardal O'Hanlon is the gang's careless Northern Irish college tutor, Kieran MacFoeinaiugh (pronounced Mac-Phew).
As with the first generation, the central cast's parents are played by established British comedic actors. Harry Enfield and Morwenna Banks return as Effy's parents, with Banks' real life partner David Baddiel appearing as her fictional husband's work colleague. Sally Phillips is introduced as Pandora's mother Angela, and Maureen Lipman as her Aunt Elizabeth. .Other parents include Cook's father (Matt King) and mother (Tanya Franks), JJ's mother (Juliet Cowan) and father (Douglas Hodge), Freddie's dad (Simon Day), Naomi's mother (Olivia Colman), and Katie and Emily's parents played by impressionist Ronni Ancona and stand-up comedian John Bishop.^ It turns out his mother had called his father and the "dad" was supposedly worried about him.

Plot synopsis

Series 1

Episode one, "Tony", is an ensemble piece, which introduces the characters and the format. Episode two ("Cassie"), features Cassie's time in an eating disorder hospital. Episode three ("Jal") features Jal's ambition to win BBC Young Musician of the Year. Episode four ("Chris") features Chris left alone with £1,000 left to him by his mother, and his eventual move into temporary student accommodation. .Episode five ("Sid") shows Sid's struggle with his dysfunctional family and his victimisation at the hands of Tony's manipulation, Michelle breaks up with Tony.^ I'm struggling to keep up with the times I've been catching up on The Wire on BET (tomorrow I'll actually watch that one at 9 PM for the first time ever) and, as I mentioned before, I have too many can't-miss-an-episode-or-I'm-lost shows on my TV platter.

^ A&E has its Sopranos episode running at that time, but I've given up trying to catch up with that show.

Tony manipulated both Michelle and Sid so they would date, but that only led to Michelle thinking Sid was in on it. Sid then tries to apologise, only for Tony to intervene and win Michelle back for himself. .Unlike episodes one to five, episode six ("Maxxie and Anwar") focuses on both the two named characters and how they build up conflict through Maxxie's homosexuality and Anwar's Muslim faith.^ Skins: Volume Two contains all ten episodes of Skins ' second season, along with the Skins Christmas special (which didn't air on television in the States) and five additional bonus Skins mini-stories including "Tony's Nightmare," "Musical Auditions," "Cassandra," "When Maxxie Met Anwar," and "Anwar & Sketch."

.Episode seven ("Michelle") shows Michelle's understanding of Tony's manipulative and cheating ways, and her gradual acceptance a relationship with him is not good for her.^ Although the episode was Sayid-centric this week, it seemed to me that there wasn't as much focus on him as many of the others received during their character-specific shows.

^ The show last night didn't really show him having problems, but it was just the first episode.

.Episode eight, ("Effy"), focuses less on its namesake than on the central characters' search for her.^ It worked out pretty well: a nice clean picture, and less commercial breaks than you'd get while watching it on TV. As for the episode itself...

"Finale" focuses on the whole group in general. The series finishes with the anti-hero Tony being run down by a bus after he begins to change his personality for the benefit of winning back Michelle, then the main cast sings the Cat Stevens 1970 classic "Wild World." It is also noted that each episode starts with the eyes of the main character.

Series 2

.The second series premiered on E4 on 11 February 2008, however the first episode was available in four parts to MySpace users prior to airing.^ This time, it's VATER syndrome (or VATER association), a series of birth defects of yet unknown cause which have been described as occurring together, highlighted in the episode "Six Days," part 1.

The series is set six months after the conclusion of the first. .Tony is alive after being hit by a bus, but he is now severely mentally impaired despite having no apparent physical injuries.^ Season Two finds the gang in Bristol reeling from the bus accident at the end of the first season that has left Tony alive but not exactly the same person he was before.

^ Is Carlos, who fell to the ground after being hit by something, alive?

^ But apparently Simon & Edgar are not only not involved and have no financial interest, but it sounded like they didn't even know about it until it hit the trades.

This gives him access to the keys for a small flat, but this leads to being reluctantly fired after a client comes to visit the flat he is living in post-party. At the party, he cheats on Jal with his old psychology teacher Angie. Jal later discovers she is pregnant. .Anwar splits up with Sketch after Maxxie shows him he is being manipulated by her.^ He ended up being flown away and dropping out of the show.

^ Since book 7 I've only bought Jordan and have stopped reading the books until they are all out, same for Hobb & Douglass.

^ I read the other day about The Wire, that it should be a matter of study to all the people that likes to write, as an example of how to write characters, plot and settings, in any media.

Everyone gets the grades they need apart from Anwar who goes missing. Maxxie becomes upset that he is leaving to London without saying goodbye to his best friend. .Sketch seemingly fancies Anwar more than Maxxie now and attempts to persuade Anwar to be friends with her in Bristol.^ We have the technology now, which is much more improved than the 70's version.

^ I guess the majority are well-used to books in many parts by now, and more than happy to wait if they like what they've seen thus far.

^ My guess is that if an author writes to please me in fantasy, that author will probably lose more readers than if he/she wrote to please my friends.

However, Maxxie manages to convince him to go to London with him and James, leaving Sketch behind in tears. Tony buys Sid a ticket to New York and after an emotional farewell, sends him off to find Cassie. .After this, Tony, headed for Cardiff University, and Michelle, who has a place at the University of York, come to terms with the inevitable end of their relationship and decide they were "better than" a good couple.^ They were in the bottom three teams at episode end and appeared to be the team heading home after the judges told them to pick up the scissors for a de-sashing ceremony.

^ What all the winners had in common was that they all earned their prizes from the toughest judges of all — the people who watch TV for a living, rather than those who make it for a living.

The last scenes are of Sid searching for Cassie in New York, ambiguously stopping in front of the cafe she is working in.
.Anwar is the only person to not get a character centric episode, although the final episode is based loosely around him.^ Although the episode was Sayid-centric this week, it seemed to me that there wasn't as much focus on him as many of the others received during their character-specific shows.

^ Although the episode didn't have as much humorous interaction between the characters, it also didn't have a horrifying gory mob hit scene, either.

Series 3

.We meet Emily putting clothes out for college, and her sister, Katie, who walks all over Emily and tries to be best friends with Effy.^ Tonight was the night for the guys to put out their best to make it in the final 12.

^ Then she belted out Pat Benetar's "Heartbreaker" putting all of the guys to shame...

Now in school we see Pandora who is set on losing her virginity, but she hasn't got a boyfriend. .Finally in the assembly hall we meet Naomi who is passionate about political issues and hates her hippy mother who brings strangers to her house all the time.^ The January/February issue of WebMD Magazine has debuted, and it features the fabulously hunky Hugh Laurie, who plays Dr. Gregory House.

Naomi, however, is much more unwilling and struggles to come to terms with her sexuality, repeatedly demonstrating that she does care for Emily, then rejecting her. Ultimately, however, both acknowledge their feelings for each other, and the two enter into a relationship.
In episode 2 we get to meet Karen, Freddie's sister who wants to be famous. In episode 5, we learn that she has entered a talent contest called "Search for a Sexxbomb" but in the end, loses. Episode 3 focuses on Thomas who comes from the Congo. Once his mother sees what the kids of England get up to, he is forced to leave England and return to the Congo. .However, he finally returns to be with Pandora, but finds out she is having casual sex with Cook (when he reveals all after taking JJ's STUN medication), and they split.^ Hurley demanded it back and we find out there were no bullets in it all along.

^ At the airport, Charla eavesdropped on other teams finding out they were on an earlier flight.

^ Claire and her aunt find out that a mysterious benefactor has told the hospital he'd pay all the bills.

However, Thomas eventually forgives her and the two rekindle their relationship.
Throughout the series, Freddie is seen to have feelings for Effy, but she repeatedly rebuffs his advances, choosing instead to pursue a sexual relationship with Cook. .It becomes clear, however, that Effy reciprocates Freddie's feelings, but is unable to tell him.^ He thought of not telling him, but feels Earl would be loyal.

Effy seems to be coming to terms with her feelings for Freddie, but is disconcerted when Freddie enters into a relationship with Katie. Effy eventually breaks up with Cook, but by this time, Freddie is with Katie. When the group are at a party in the woods, Effy, who has been consuming hallucinogenic mushrooms, hits Katie over the head with a rock when Katie wrestles her to the ground. Effy and Freddie then have sex, Freddie being unaware of what transpired between Effy and Katie. When it is revealed, Freddie is seemingly very upset with Effy and so, Effy leaves Bristol with Cook. .In the series finale, Freddie and JJ go searching for Cook and Effy, who has finally admitted to Freddie that she loves him.^ After he admitted guilt and apologized, she planned to let him go.

^ After all, the final 12 are the ones who go on tour, get the huge exposure and more.

It becomes obvious that Cook has fallen in love with Effy also. .The three boys decide to enter a race and agree that whoever wins will be the one who gets to "keep" Effy.^ Anthony decided he'd ignore Rocky and it would end up Rocky being the one who looked bad.

JJ wins, but instead of 'claiming' Effy, he demands that the four resolve their problems once and for all. He forces the two boys to admit their love for Effy then insists that Effy finally choose between them. Effy does not need to say anything as it is clear from the look she gives Freddie that she chooses him. Cook storms out. When JJ follows him, Effy and Freddie are left alone, and the two have sex. .However, the outcome of the love triangle is left unclear, because Cook tells Freddie that he could never let Freddie and Effy be together, because he loves her too.^ He told Locke that he knew he communed with the island not only because he didn't need the wheelchair, but it was the one place his father could never find him.

.Freddie, reluctant to hurt his friend, seems to be undecided as to what he should do, and the series ends as Freddie asks "What do we do now?"^ Then again, someone asked me yesterday whether it was worth watching The Sopranos now that the final series is airing.

Series 4

.The fourth series began filming in July 2009 and concluded in November 2009.

A girl named Sophia takes MDMA and commits suicide. Thomas, working there as a DJ, is expelled by new school headmaster David Blood (Chris Addison) due to his connection with the incident. As the police begin to investigate, Thomas begins to rethink his life and breaks up with Pandora.
Emily and Naomi are planning a trip to Mexico, which Jenna Fitch strongly disapproves of. Emily promptly moves in with Naomi after Jenna attempts to bribe her into going on a trip alone. Meanwhile, Emily begins to investigate the relationship between Naomi and Sophia (the deceased girl from the previous episode) after the police interviews both of them. .It turns out Naomi had gone to a University Open Day that Emily was unaware of, and cheated with Sophia as well as selling her the MDMA, which she had bought off Cook.^ Lindsay Lohan's worst day ever turned out to be a good one to visit the headquarters of TMZ.com.

.Heartbroken, Emily is comforted by her father, who admits that he cheated on her mother with Emily's aunt when he was younger.^ He took Hurley to a gypsy who admitted for $10,000 that the father had set up the whole "get rid of the curse" act at the request of his father.

.Telling her it gets better after it gets worse, the episode ends with Emily visiting Naomi, whose front door has the note "I'll do anything" attached.^ At 8 PM ET/PT, there is a new Jericho on CBS. I've missed the episodes since the end of the show's hiatus, so I'm not sure if I'll watch it or not.

Emily enters Naomi's home. Meanwhile, Effy returns and begins a relationship with Freddie. In an outburst of jealous rage, Cook assaults a nearby boy.
.Following the assault, Cook is arrested and given bail with an electric tag (which forces him to live with his younger brother and apathetic, alcoholic mother) and is expelled from school by the headmaster, David Blood.^ Now, I think we've all known a tag-along like him at some time or another in our lives.

He revels in teaching his younger brother his own dangerous habits, before realising his actions are exactly that - childish. Cook and Naomi share their feelings of responsibility over the death of Sophia. In the culmination of the episode, Cook pleads guilty to GBH, and confesses to selling Sophia the MDMA, saving Naomi from suspicion whilst condemning himself.

The father of the child is still in love with Lara, and does not want JJ and her to be together. While their first date is a bit of a disaster, he wins her over when she tells him to be himself. JJ is later provoked by Liam (the ex boyfriend/father of the child) into punching him in front of Lara, which causes her to end it with JJ, he then wins back her affections by serenading her from below her window with "True" by Spandau Ballet. .JJ's absent father opens up to his son in this episode, saying he does not think JJ needs all the pills that his mother and psychiatrist push onto him.^ Now, I think we've all known a tag-along like him at some time or another in our lives.

.As she is permitted to leave, albeit with conditions from John, she decides to visit Freddie, in which she confirms she only has love for him, and "That is all". However, at a celebration party where all the other characters are celebrating their A levels, Effy suddenly states that she is finished and is saying goodbye to everyone - including Freddie.^ Although the episode was Sayid-centric this week, it seemed to me that there wasn't as much focus on him as many of the others received during their character-specific shows.

^ All I can say was one way was better than the other and shifted the dynamics of who was leading the pack.

^ Instead, all she did was blow any chance that others know she's willing to leave.

Over the course of the episode Effy's condition deteriorates to the point of where she forgets who she is and who her friends are. Cook notices this and after a brief chasing scene Effy demands to be taken back to Freddie. As Cook does so he notices a duffel bag; hinting towards Freddie's near escape, the two talk and Cook leaves implying he is finished with chasing Effy. Effy is admitted back to the psychiatric hospital, although refusing to go back under the supervision of John as it is apparent he has been using hypnotic methods to cause Effy to forget everything about her past. After a brief scuffle with Freddie, John exits hastily, only to later invite Freddie to his home. Freddie advances his threats that John leave Effy alone and begins to leave. The door is locked, and John is seen brandishing a baseball bat. We hear Freddie try to reason with John as he begins to beat the skater mercilessly. After a few more yells and blood splatting onto the window the counsellor continues beating the now dead Freddie.
.Freddie's sister is worried about him going missing and goes to Cook for answers.^ His tribemates really seem to like him, but at least now Lisi won't have to worry about babysitting him.

^ He didn't seem to forget the words, but Gwen Stefani was indeed right to worry about him.

^ She said something about if Jack were missing six years, not knowing him, didn't want to know.

However Cook is as much in the dark as she is and has no idea of the whereabouts of Freddie. .To distract themselves from what's happening they throw a party at Naomi's and then continue in Freddie's shed, where everyone gets drunk and has a good time.^ But they caught themselves this time and went back before losing too much time.

^ With some you can actually see the books getting fatter as they progress down your shelf - a good indicator of a bit of a loss of focus.

At the party Naomi reconciles with Emily, as does Thomas with Pandora; both have been accepted to Harvard University in the States. Thomas is on a track scholarship, and Pandora was accepted for her impressive academic results. Cook steps outside for a minute and catches a glimpse of a shadow. He follows the shadow and is lead to John Foster's basement where he finds bloodstained clothes and shoes belonging to Freddie. John steps from the dark brandishing his infamous baseball bat, saying that he belongs with Effy. He knocks Cook to the ground with his baseball bat, but Cook gets back up with a grin on his face. .Cook states that yes, he is a nobody (as John provokes him by calling him a nobody), but John killed his best friend.^ Mohinder said Sylar was called Patient Zero by his father and he needed spinal fluid before killing him.

.This seems to be the turning point for Cook, and he realises that it doesn't matter how the fight goes, he has not much left to care about.^ I don't care how much he smiles to the camera while he sings.

Production

Writing

.The show's realistic plot lines are often credited to the writing team, who have an average age of 21. The series co-producer Bryan Elsley said, "It's all about the writing.^ I'm writing about it again because of two things: a recent LA Times article (see below), and a somewhat underrated, one-season wonder TV show.

^ James/Boston/Rocky was being a drama queen about it all (especially in light of what happened later in the show).

^ I only catch this show now and then, so I won't be writing regular entries about it.

[...] .We're about letting our audience feel they are not alone.^ The local FOX affiliate's slogan has been in place for forty years and they're not letting us forget it.

^ And, I have a feeling that Locke's statement about things not remaining buried on the beach may indicate they'll unbury themselves.

^ Seeing as the last timeline given was eight hours and the effect of the venom is eight hours, they're just about unparalyzed.

[...] .We're always having people miss [writing] meetings because they've got A-levels or even GCSEs". Mr Elsley and his fellow producer Simon Edmonds have remarked upon the success, in particular of Series 1, as "groundbreaking" for British teen television.^ The Moto tribe, even though they're living the life of luxury and have won every challenge so far, has its own issues.

^ And, believe me, my parents always knew where I was at 10 PM even when I preferred they didn't!

^ Oh, I've had my favorites and I've even liked some of the songs they went on to sing after success on the show.

Filming

.The show is filmed in Bristol; Roundview College school scenes are shot at Henbury School, having formerly been shot at Filton College's WISE Campus and John Cabot Academy, and multiple scenes are located around College Green.^ Although this show has the most discombobulated Manhattan scenes I've ever seen, I'm loving the street shots.

^ The final scene of the show will be filmed at an ice cream shop in town.

Speaking at Broadcast's television drama conference, he also confirmed the show would stick to its pattern of introducing college-age characters, moving them on in the next series, then letting them go. ."The first year is about getting to know the kids, and the second gives us the advantage of being able to explore their psyches a little more," said Elsley.^ Tony's a smug little bastard, but as played by Nicholas Hoult (Hugh Grant's kid sidekick from "About a Boy"), he's a very recognizable one.

Reception

Critical reception

The first series received positive reviews, although some critics complained that the series depicts teenagers unrealistically and stereotypically.[25] .Others criticised the excessive promotion of the show (specifically in the UK) and having relatively mediocre writing in comparison to other similarly themed shows.^ Although the episode was Sayid-centric this week, it seemed to me that there wasn't as much focus on him as many of the others received during their character-specific shows.

.Actor Nicholas Hoult defended criticism of the extreme storylines, saying they would not reflect "everyone's teenage life", adding "it is maybe heightened for entertainment but all of it is believable."^ Hopefully they won't, say, create 24: Miami (although that would get under CBS' skin, given the time slot).

.Marieke Hardy was extremely admiring of the show, and particularly enjoyed the fact that the show was "beautiful and sad and poignant and perfectly hurtful", while also managing to give impression of being drama that is "edgy, funny and rude".[citation needed] However, she did state that she was unsure whether the show was meant for teenagers or not.^ James/Boston/Rocky was being a drama queen about it all (especially in light of what happened later in the show).

[27] Stewart Lee has remarked during an interview on the BBC4 programme Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe that he feels lucky for having been a teenager watching TV for teenagers in the 1970s and not the 2000s as "there was something really comforting for nerds and weirdos about programmes like Children of the Stones and The Changes."[citation needed] He said that watching Skins as a teenager today would make him feel lonelier than he already would have been.[28] .However, Brooker himself gave the programme a positive review in his Guardian column "Screen Burn",[29] and specifically stated that "the series had wrong-footed me",[citation needed] comparing his initial expectation of Skins as a shallow show to after he had finished watching the series.^ The first series wasn't too bad for that as it started about 6 months after I'd finished college, but I don't think it'll be the same this time watching a show about lower sixth formers.

.In his book Doctor Who: The Writer's Tale, Russell T. Davies and his co-author, Benjamin Cook, discuss Skins at length, with Davies praising the show's innovation in a genre that was fast becoming tired and out of date.^ Comedy - 35-year old guy who got married right out of college is now divorced and unprepared to re-enter the dating scene.

.They are critical of some elements of the first series, such as the believability of Tony's character, or episode 6 which is described as "Carry On Russia", but give high praise to the second series as a whole, highlighting the death of Sid's dad as a superb moment, and calling the finale "perfect". Davies, creator of the award-winning Queer as Folk, also praised the handling of the show's homosexuality-related storylines, saying that he knew a boy very like Maxxie in the 80s.^ Tony's a smug little bastard, but as played by Nicholas Hoult (Hugh Grant's kid sidekick from "About a Boy"), he's a very recognizable one.

Television ratings

The pilot episode of Skins averaged 1.5 million viewers.[38] .The ratings for the second series which launched peaked at 884,000 viewers, which gave it 5.9% audience share and taking 60% of the 16-24 demographic, however this was still more than 500,000 viewers down on its series one premiere.^ Keep in mind, I saw the Stones sing the song live in their prime on more than one occasion.

Cultural influence

The programme has given rise to the term 'skins party', referring to a debauched night of heavy drinking and recreational drug use.[45] .During the 2007 Easter holiday a girl in County Durham threw a house party; it was advertised on her MySpace profile as a "Skins Unofficial Party," referring to the party in the first series' trailer, with the subtitle "Let's trash the average family-sized house disco party". 200 people turned up, breaking into the house and causing over £20,000 of seemingly deliberate damage.^ Back at the Bennet's home, it turns out that Bennet's wife is actually morphed Primatech Girl and the boss turns up.

She alleges that her account was hacked and someone else placed the ad.[46][47] Similar incidents have taken place in the Republic of Ireland, with major household damage and theft of personal property being reported in Firhouse and Foxrock. Although these attacks have not been conclusively linked to the show, news outlets have reported that they are called Skins parties.[48] Club nights marketed as 'Skins Secret Parties' have also taken shape in Leicester and Brighton.[49] Following this, a series of parties were run by Company Pictures in spring 2008.[50]

Series 1

Tony [1.1]

Tony: Tonight's the night, Sid. You finally pop the cherry, you finally get the VIP tour of Neverland, you finally...
Sid: Fuck off. [mutters] Don't make fun of me.

Tony: Alright, who's stupid enough to fuck Sid?
Michelle: Cassie?
Sid: No, she's still in hospital.
.Michelle: No, they let her out; she's just not allowed to handle knives.^ No intended bride, just a shove out of an eighth-story window.

Sid: [defeated] Alright, she'll do.
Tony: Okay we'll have to get a lot of drugs. Tell you what: get an ounce. We can sell it at the party.
Sid: I've got to get an ounce of spliff?
Tony: Sure. There's this guy on Bradley Stoke who'll sell on tick; tell him you'll pay tomorrow.
Sid: Why don't you go?
Tony: Can't. Got tai chi, then my choir audition, then psychology.
Michelle: Cassie's great in the sack... as long as she's not hungry.
Sid: Who says?
Tony and Michelle: Everyone.

.Tony: I say this world extends way beyond this little field of dreams we're dancing in, and I wanna see that world.^ Last night was the lunar eclipse (which was way cool, I must say) and we're into the first week out of the February Sweeps period.

Chris: What the fuck's he on about?
Jal: He's quoting, Chris. It's a literary reference.
Chris: What do you mean, like Shakespeare and shit?
Jal: Dawson's Creek.

Maxxie: Where are you going?
Chris: To find that party.
Maxxie: Nah!
Chris: Look, it's posh kids! All the boys are gay!
Maxxie: Yea?
Anwar: Are the girls gay, too?
Chris: Look... everyone's gay!

Tony: How's the treatment going, Cassie?
Cassie: Oh, it's cool. I wear a white dress and now I can eat yogurt, cup-a-soup, and hazelnuts now. I'm not sick if they let me play with the cats. Yeah, it's like... hazy days, y'know?
Tony: Well, that's encouraging...

Cassie [1.2]

Anwar: I'm praying to my God here, Cass.
Cassie: Oh... wow... can he hear you?
.Anwar: I hope not, otherwise he'll know about all those pills I nicked last night.^ Alex and Edgardo think she'll be loyal to them and all are worried about her state of mind because she seemed ready to quit went sent away.

^ At least I enjoyed the "one thing folks don't know about me" bits more than last week's teary dedications.

Ms Stock: [on the phone to her daughter Abigail] Yes?... No... .No, I don't care who's going, Abigail, you failed to comply with my wishes regarding parties and carpets were damaged!...^ Um, no, I don't know where my children are.

Stop crying!... I am not an "expletive bitch", I am your mother! Have you taken your medication?... Well, take it now. Now!

Tony: You stink.
Sid: I didn't have time.
Tony: Time? I’ve been home, showered, done my Chi, had a wank, subtly undermined my dad, put new clothes on and here I am, with my English coursework. I can't believe you haven't washed, man. You stink.
Sid: [in shock] Somebody kissed me.
Tony: Well, yeah, mate, but that's like a complete total fucking operator error 'cause you stink.

Angie: [walking out of the shower half-naked] Tony, this is a room for female staff...!
Tony: Yeah, the dryer's broken in ours.
Sid: [walking in] Oh, there you are. Jesus, we're in trouble. That crazy fucking dealer found us Tony—hi, Angie [Angie uses her hands to cover her breasts]—I mean, we gotta do something, you could talk to him... oh, fuck!
Chris: [walking in] Aw, you wankers, that was well funny, man! I bet someone's going to have to apologise because Kenneth's crying now so he... [realises Angie is staring at him] Oh, Jesus Christ, that's Angie, Mary mother of God, that's Angie! Don't look, get out!
Angie: For fuck's sake, fuck off! [after the boys leave] Ah, I still got it.

Cassie: This guy from my group therapy’s got your ID card. He’s a crazy fuck and he hates you because you cheated him.
Sid: What’s his name?
Cassie: He likes to be called Mad.
Sid: Twatter?
Cassie: Yeah, totally. What did you do?
Sid: I bought some dope on the tick and lost it in the harbour, and... oh, fuck!

Michelle: Like looking good, it's what I do.

Anwar: I’m respecting. Believe me, I’m respecting.

I'm informed and on the level that I might mention that when I scream it's just passion. I ain't angry at culture, I ain't angry at fashion. And I might sound spiteful if I feel shit's epidemic; I admit that some is soul and some is academic. .I've been doing this forever, so why're you choosing now?^ I know you have some great photos and now that you've digitized your CD or DVD collection you have a pile of CD/DVD cases that aren't being used so what do you do with them?

Tony: Change. It's a wonderful thing. Look, you know how subatomic particles don't obey physical laws? They act according to chance, chaos, coincidence. .They run into each other in the middle of the universe somewhere and bang!^ They were loosely connected in the middle so that the tribe members could make adjustments, get closer to the center while another was "pushed" in the other direction.

I am here for you. We can sort this out. I'm all ears, come on.
.Sid: Well, we can start with the fact that my best mate wants me to make a move on his girlfriend, who I love, even though she still really loves him and now actually hates me and my dad thinks I'm a complete fuck-up and can't stop acting like a fuck-up and no matter what I try, I can't stop pissing everyone off.^ He did it well enough, but I'm getting tired of his same moves, his same dancing, his same mugging to the camera and acting like he's the sexiest man alive.

^ Even though the lead mobster's revengeful brother has an inkling that Tommy had something to do with the death, he carries it off!

^ His tribemates really seem to like him, but at least now Lisi won't have to worry about babysitting him.

Sort that out can we?

Maxxie and Anwar [1.6]

[Anwar gets out of the Russian interrogation room]
Anwar: Now what?
Angie: Walk on.
Anwar: Fine. .It's just that they look so disappointed that I'm not a terrorist.^ They met up with Rousseau by the stream leaving Nadia the Cat looking just a bit forlorn.

Tony: Well you are a very dull Muslim. Very dull indeed.

Maxxie: Anwar's decided to become a Muslim.
.Sid: What, like more Muslim than he was already?^ As Sayid approached the structure which was more like a shack than a house from the outside, he passed a sitting cat.

Maxxie: A bit more Muslim, yeah.

Maxxie: Anwar's a fucking liar! Lies to his mum all the fucking time! No, no, no, fuck that. He makes me lie for him.
Valentina: Who is Anwar?
Maxxie: ... a friend.
Valentina: Who is homo?
Maxxie: Me! Anwar hates me 'cause I'm a fucking homo!

Chris Miles: How old are they normally?

Sid: [to himself] Every time. Every fucking time. "Buy three ounces of weed, Sidney." Oh yes, sir. "Shove a bag of pill up your ass, Sidney." Oh, right away. "Come help me save some random bint." Oh, could I? What have we learned, Sidney? Your friends are shitheads.

Michelle [1.7]

[Chris has just seen Michelle act coldly to Tony and Tony getting slapped]
Chris Miles: Jesus, Sid, are you going to tell me what's going on? It's like a fucking episode of The O.C. in here!

Jal: 'Shell what happened?
Michelle: [crying] Never mind!
Jal: Never mind? Did he screw someone again?
Michelle: Again?
Jal: I tried to tell you 'Shell.
Michelle: About who?
Jal: But you never wanna hear it.
Michelle: About who for Christ's sakes!
Jal: Jenny, Mags, Kelly, White Justine, Black Justine, Bucksy from the Geography trip, the posh girl from the choir..

[Tony is outside Michelle's house throwing pebbles at her window]
Tony: 'Shell! 'Shell! Hey Nips! It is the east and Juliet is the sun. .Arise fair sun and kill the envious moon who is already sick and pale with grief.^ Sun really thought that it was the Others who killed them because her own experience when kidnapped was so horrible.

Sid: Why do you pull all this shit, Tony?
Tony: Look around Sidney. Fuck all ever happens in this shitty little town. You've gotta improvise.
Sid: No matter who you hurt.

Maxxie: I got off with Tony on the Russia trip. I only did it 'cause I fell out with Anwar when he said he hated gays. .So I got upset and Tony said he'd give me head to cheer me up, you know?^ But I'll zap a post up when the show starts to give you a sense of the timing for the East Coast Update.

.And it didn't mean anything but I lost my head, then he gave me head, then we got deported from Russia and I'm really, really sorry for being a slut, okay?^ What Locke and Kate didn't realize was that Sayid knew Mikhail wasn't being honest and most certainly, wasn't alone.

I hear words go past me backwards. The people I should love I hate, and the people I hate...

[Sid and Tony are rushing to Effy's rescue]
Sid: Hang on, you want to nick my dad’s car? Why can’t we nick your dad's instead?
.Tony: Because, Sid, my dad has central locking, sophisticated alarm system, and probably thinks a spell in prison would do me good.^ I think they were a good bit behind, more than a helping hand to the mat would accomplish.

Whereas your dad has a 20 year-old car, neighbourhood watch, and won’t prosecute.

Tony: Effy’s different, I sort of own her, ‘cause she’s my sister. But with you... .I just really wanted you there.^ There is a magic box and you just never know what may be inside.

Then you were, in the car.
Sid: Thing is, Tony, you sort of own me too. Mostly in a good way.

^ I don't care how much he smiles to the camera while he sings.

^ She can sing songs I really don't like and make me sit there in awe of what she does to them.

And you're beautiful. .And I've been such a fucking chapstick this past few weeks.^ The past few weeks have seen the show move more forward in story than I feel the entire "fall" season did.

^ And, after the past few weeks of answered mysteries, fluff glares.

Doorman: But?
Tony: The character arcs are immaculately achieved with a good degree of stylistic control. I especially like the doorman with superpowers; vaporising Reeboks? Very nice. [the doorman laughs] But you need to move the climatic development back, so the orgy scene comes before the disembowelling of the Elvic horde. See?

^ Now that I think of it, neither did I. Chris Sligh's secret was about the opposite of Phil's.

^ Chris Sligh talked with Peter Noone about singing "Henry the Eighth" and I was so hoping he would!

The advice he'd give me, which'd be something like, "Know what, babe? Fuck it. These guys know all about me. Tell them about someone else." So I thought I'd tell you about a hero of Chris's: a man called Captain Joe Kittinger. In 1960, climbing into a foil balloon, Captain Joe ascended 32 kilometres into the stratosphere. And then, armed only with a parachute, he jumped out. He fell for four minutes and thirty-six seconds, reaching seven hundred and forty miles per hour before opening his parachute five kilometres above the Earth. It had never been done before, and it's never been done since. .He did it just because he could.^ Just when I thought Rocky could get no worse, he did.

.And that's why Chris loved him; because the thing about Chris was, he said yes.^ Microsoft Rejuvinates Vista Media Center at Cedia - Chris Lanier talks about why he thinks Media Center is back on the right path compared to before.

He said yes to everything. He loved everyone. And he was the bravest boy— man—I knew. And that was—he flung himself out of a foil balloon every day. Because he could. Because he was. And that's why—and that's why we loved him.

Sid: The three of us. Together again. .And we've all seen each other naked.^ After all, much of what we've seen connected with her in the last decade or so was Michael Jackson related.

[Michelle laughs a bit then looks disgusted] Which is... nice.

Sid: Where are we going, Ton?
Tony: Oh... yeah. [hands Sid an envelope]
Sid: What's this?
Tony: Open it.
[Sid opens the envelope to find his passport and a plane ticket]
Sid: New York? Why would I want to go to New York?
Tony: She's thin. She's blonde. She says [spacey] "wow!" a lot.

[The new characters introduce themselves]

Naomi: I'm Naomi. I hate injustice. People tell lies about me.

Effy: Sometimes I wonder.

JJ: If Freddie was here...

.Pandora: There's a whamma lot of things you don't know about me, Eff.^ I just don't like it, don't you know.

^ At least I enjoyed the "one thing folks don't know about me" bits more than last week's teary dedications.

^ Randy and Paula both sang their praises while Simon commented that her singing probably won't be the only thing the audience talks about -- "you naughty little thing."

Just because I'm useless don't mean that I'm nothing.
Effy: We're friends because you don't surf and turf my men. You said that.
Pandora: He's not yours, Eff. He never belonged to anyone.
Effy: Shut up.
Pandora: That's why you don't really want him.
Effy: Shut up.
.Pandora: He's not the one you want, Eff.^ NBC has a new Grease: You're the One That I Want while ABC is airing a new episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition .

^ Grease: You're the One That I Want .

See I know that because I'm your friend but you don't make enough effort Eff. I'm just there to laugh at. .You don't know me.^ I just don't like it, don't you know.

My life, my family, my mum. .Why don't you know anything about my mum?^ I just don't like it, don't you know.

^ At least I enjoyed the "one thing folks don't know about me" bits more than last week's teary dedications.

^ Um, no, I don't know where my children are.

I know everything about yours.
Effy: You're right. .I don't know anything about your mum.^ At least I enjoyed the "one thing folks don't know about me" bits more than last week's teary dedications.

Pandora: Sorry, okay.
Effy: Yeah. [pause] Oh Jesus.
Pandora: What?
Effy: Be careful what you wish for, Pandora.
Pandora: Why?
Thomas: Panda! Panda! [Pandora turns around] Panda! Panda, look I'm here. Panda, it's me. Are you not glad to see me? Mother said I could come back. What's wrong?

Effy: Yeah, it's marvelled at.
[They enter the shed]
Freddie: So this is it.
Effy: So what do you and the boys do in here? Braid each others hair and play soggy biscuit?
Freddie: No. [beat] Not for ages.

[During a fairly uninspiring English lesson]
Naomi: Hamlet's basically a teenage boy. He's got all these desires, but he doesn't have the bottle to reach out for them. .So, he goes mad, and wanks off about Ophelia, and ends up so boring, somebody has to kill him!^ Ian had been insistent about waiting on line and ended up missing the boat.

^ When Hurley questioned Sawyer about where he got the gun, Sawyer told him "off of one of them," referring to Nikki and Paulo.

^ But it was Rob who ended up with the note in question and was giggling about it.

Josie: I'm not sure that's right. There's no wanking in Hamlet.
Naomi: Yeah, there is. Loads. Only they call it "soliloquising".

Freddie: We’d be good together. Don’t you think?
Effy: No.
Freddie: Why?
Effy: Because I’ll break your heart.
Freddie: Maybe I’ll break yours.
Effy: Nobody breaks my heart. And anyway, why would I want that?

.Anthea: You may as well take them, they'll only end up in cunting Oxfam!^ They end up in therapy.

^ Geez, Ian and Teri were headed to Porter, but accidentally ended up in Pamper and they nailed the task, too!

^ As they happen here in the East, I'll get them up on the blog.

Jim: [Shouting] Don't you dare use "cunt" and "Oxfam" in the same sentence!

Naomi [3.6]

Emily: Twice. .You're going to do this to me twice.^ If not, you're going to be an hour out of step with the rest of the world.

Naomi, no, you fucking... stop right now!
Naomi: What?
Emily: Don’t you dare leave me in your bed again.
Naomi: I've got to go. [walks away]
Emily: I know you, Naomi. I know you're lonely. I think you need someone to want you. Well, I do want you. So be brave, and want me back!

Emily: I'm not gonna open the door. My face is all puffy. I cried a bit.
Naomi: I don't care. [sits on the doorstep]
[Emily sits on the other side of the door]
Naomi: I do... want someone, need someone. You were right.
Emily: And?
Naomi: And when I'm with you, I feel like I'm a better person. I feel happier, less... alone. Less lonely.
[Emily puts her hand through the cat flap to hold Naomi's]
Naomi: But it's not as simple as that is it? Being with someone?
Emily: Isn't it?
.Naomi: No...I mean, I don't know...I mean I don't think so, I mean...^ Um, no, I don't know where my children are.

Can't we just sit like this, for a bit?
Emily: Yeah, we can... for a bit.

JJ: That's a relief.

Cook: Freddie, she loves you, you know?
Freddie: What?
Cook: She loves you. And she can't stand it. Can't stand the love, so she fucks me instead.
Freddie: What? [to JJ] What's he saying?
JJ: Oh god.
Freddie: What?
JJ: Shit. I think you're going to get the truth, Fredds. Cook?
Cook: I'm pissed off yeah. She's taking the piss. And it's hurting me, cos Cook needs the love too. Cookie's got nothing. Cookie's always got nothing. That's why I do her pal. That's why I pop Panda. Panda's popped. It's always the same - great tits Panda, great tits Effy. That's all I get, cos' I'm shit. I'm pure shit.

JJ: Just care, OK?
Cook: About what?

Effy [3.8]

Anthea: Love, she's gone.
Cook: Ok, what time's she back?
Anthea: Not till tomorrow. .They've gone to some party at Gobbler's End.^ In the end, he was blindsided -- not as bad as some who never had an inkling they'd be voted off, but surprised.

^ Oh, I've had my favorites and I've even liked some of the songs they went on to sing after success on the show.

^ Dustin and Kandice are a strong team in many ways, but this is the second time they've gone by a clue.

Cook: Nah? Because we're supposed to hang out tonight.
Anthea: Is that before you broke up or after?
Cook: But I bought a fucking gâteau!
Anthea: My favourite. [Takes cake and shuts the door]

Pandora: Relationships just can't stay the same, can they? Can't always be lovely and lush and not full of weird silences all the time. People can't always be perfect, 'cause that's not real, is it? It's not real 'cause things change. Don't they?

Cook: [to Freddie] What do you want, my fucking blood? Cos' you've fucking taken everything else! .You've taken fucking JJ, and now you're nicking her as well!^ Well you're in luck.
