Got to be the most advertised program ever, from the same people who brought us Shameless.
Nice basic idea, follow a group of teenagers and find out what it's like to be a young 'un today. Could be very entertaining or complete cr*p.
Think it's a E4 exclusive for now. I'll be tuning in, sure it's on at 10pm.
Well I used to hang out with a bunch of young'uns a few years ago. We used to get trollied on a Friday and twat about all night! I recommend camcorders for capturing the most bizzare moments.
But when I see the trailers for Skins I don't believe it. We used to consume silly amount of booze before going out and then come back so utterly chemically enhanced and we never ever had any of us dressed as a bear! We did used to wear things around to the 24 hour garage though. Elvis shades and 'burns' were always amusing as was myself and Darren's fetish for putting on our partner's dresses. One of the girls passed out once so we filmed her up close with Darren hid out of shot making really loud snoring noises. She still can't believe she snores like that. And we played the Big Double Decker Bus once too. I won't go into that though as I still don't quite get it.
Either way, Skins looks like it may be ok. Shameless has always been good but it does have one exceptional character that elevates it. Wait and see.
Edit: Also played the catalogue game too. Donna's choice. It was shit. Everyone else got to be curtains 'n' shit. I was getting things like 'bathroom cabinet' and 'scart lead'. Not fun in the slightest.

I thought this was utter shit, from the few minutes I could stand of this it just looked like spotty teens burping, farting and getting pissed
Also im not sure if anyone else agrees but I found something slightly distrubing with the way this program appears to glamourise teenage sex, maybe im getting to old. I just thought it was the kinda thing a dirty old man would get off on watching.
I was busy putting together a wardrobe while it was on (don't ask) so wasn't paying 100% attention, did laugh at a couple of bits, never expected it to live up to the hype C4/E4 has put upon it tbh, will tune in next week tho'
