    Wow, I watched season 1 way back in the day, and tuned into the new series episode 1 on youtube today. What a massive difference. Nothing like I remember it. Very cliché and unrealistic with the whole 'mean girl' thing. Not a hint of humour either. Well, the acting is pretty laughable.

    Series 1 + 2 = Excellent
    Series 3 + 4 = Not bad, not excellent
    Series 5 thus far = Bad
    I agree completely!
    Start of season 5 made me cry inside.. especially the renting of the night club.. really? it's turning american.. ugh.

    I doubt I'm going to watch any more of it tbh. I have the first two on DVD (and maybe the third season as well actually) and that will do me fine anytime I fancy watching skins.

    I'm going to hold you to that XD

    I may find myself watching it anyway if there is absolutely nothing else on worth watching anywhere, but I hope it won't come to that. :p:

    I love skins and I must say that series 1 and 2 with characters like tony, cassie, sid, chris and all the others were extremely interesting and unique. I also liked how Effy Stonem was portrayed in series 1 and even better in series 2 however when series 3 came out, I felt as if the characters individualities and expressions where a lot less. The characters in series 3 &4 seem a lot less interesting and topical. The plot of series 3&4 was not near interesting, nothing compared to 1&2. I hated the ending of series 4, and it became incredibly depressing to watch especially after Effy went under care and Freddies unnecessary death. Although characters like Cook brought a bit more life to the series and the lesbian plot, it still felt like it was missing something. There was no edge to it like in the previous series. I feel like skins needs more controversial characters like in series 1 we had cassie suffering from anorexia, and Jals pregnancy issue and Anwar and his “pick and choose” ways on his religion. We need characters like that, they should have Muslim girl portrayed or an overweight girl battling bullying and they need more outcasts, or nerds, Loners finding their inner selves. They need to show more of what goes on in society today, and off course add the entertainment. Now that series 5 is out, I watched it and honestly I thought Frankie was a very good character. Shes unique and special, however I’m a bit sceptical on Mini and her gang, it’s almost like mean girls all over again which I don’t particularly like. I guess we’l just have to wait and see for the rest. However series 1&2 will never be beaten and they are dearly missed! Can’t wait for the SKINS MOVIE though, I really hope they have all the characters from series 1 included as well...and I don;t like the fact that it’s based on the second generation. It should have been based on the first generation and how their lives have changed after college.

Cassie is my fav too I have to many favourites! So sad Chris died though...I actually felt like crying..he was such a good character...EXTREMELY good

    The only thing thing that I liked was the new theme tune.

    That was all.

    I liked the "toned down" feel the first episode had. It won't last but oh well. I'm not looking forward to them turning Franky into a party loving knob and seeing half of the cast become depressed due to their involvement in a love triangle or something.

    Don't bother with US Skins, is a remake of English first cast but with no acting skills and all the themes toned down.

    Chris was so adorable in his naive little way - especially when hewas with angie.. aww :') Watching freddie's death made me feel so stupid; it was just such a stupid to do.. it was way to melodramatic season 3.. skins is supposed to reflect reality with a humorous twist on it.. this was taking it wayyy too far. Maxxie's stalker. OH MY. She was sooo weird. And LOL anwar and her xD

    Nick? Is that the rugby player? I don't know most of the boys' names yet. I think she will end up shagging him (and basically turn into Effy 2.0) but they won't "fall in love".

    She will most likely fall in love with the guy who saw her holding the gun and either Franky or him will die at the end of Series 6 as a result of said gun. Yes, I do think they will kill off another character.
