    This! Totally agree with this whole post, especially the bits I bolded. The first generation were the most mature, which is saying something!
    Don't think Frankie belongs in series 1 tbh, I really don't rate her character. Dakota Blue Richards is pretty good though! Can't believe that's wee Lyra!
    Never going to happen unless she gets a job for the Royal Mail and somehow gets her gun back.

    However, thinking about it, didn't her parents have a whole collection of different guns at their place which they mentioned in the first episode?

    Could have been done on purpose.

    Throw that in the first episode and then in series 6 Franky goes AWOL.

    Yeah, I have, but in the sense of not desperately wanting to get laid like JJ and sid, apparently this episode is about how she's feeling 'pressurised' into doing it :rolleyes:


    Kelly brook looked smoking and I'm a straight female :P
    Oh seriously? Come on, it's like the cast are all 14! :rolleyes:

    Liv looks SO much like Jal!

    It's a shame, I thought that angel of death was pretty hot... :sigh:

    Onto the episode, well meh, that's why I don't really judge the people too much, I knew Mini would have had loads of problems herself.

    Does anyone sympathise with Mini?
    It's kinda nice Mini wasn't as bitchy as she normally is. Turns out the queen bee bully is full of insecurities herself. I got the impression that she has body image and confidence issues, and was still a virgin until she slept with Nick that episode (I think?). And the fact that she did sleep with him after knowing he'd just cheated on her with her best friend - just wow . She must really not have very much self worth to do that, poor girl.

    Couldn't give a **** about any of the characters apart from Frankie and that weird guy that appears out of no where.

    He's cute.
    Yeah....

    Thought tonight's episode was actually pretty good - nice to see Mini isn't one dimensional! Think we are getting to the meaty bits now!

    What's wrong with her? I cba to wait to watch the whole thing...
    She just seems like your average cow!
    'You're the ultimate boyfriend.' Cringe.
    OMG, is Mini a virgin?
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Well she's a massive fitness freak who eats minute amounts of 'rabbit food' for breakfast :ahee: she's obviously pretty obsessive about it, as is her mum. Her boyfriend is getting impatient and wants sexytime with her.

    They're about to go at it but she throws up on him (after alcohol consumption :fyi: ) Meanwhile in the same house another member of the team mini's bf is in gets mini's friends poon. (adding to mini's bf's jealousy)

    Mini collapses before fashion show....:blah:

    Party after fashion show - Mini finds out her bf got her bezzie friends poon (not grace the other one again)

    Near end of episode Mini drags her 'boyfriend' into bed, loses her virginity (her bf thought she already had burst her cherry)

    Wake up. He's gone to practice. Roll on credits.


    Now if I just wrote all that for nothing (I'm missing rudetube here :unimpressed: ) then I shall rage.

    Wahey, Matty :cute:. I need to know what the deal with him is though. I swear, he's barely had more than five minutes of screentime so far . Way too mysterious. And according to Wikipedia, he doesn't even get his own episode :curious:

    There's a surprise. I actually don't care though... why am I still watching?
    The fact she slept with him after he slept with Liv (?) is really sad. But meh.
    She really does have confidence issues. Her boyfriend seems like a right **** so far.
    I feel a bit sorry for her.

    Thanks so much for that! I've got to the vomit bit.
    Feeling a bit meh about the episode so far, mostly because I don't actually care.
    But thank you!

    Grace is an appalling actress though. But she's so pretty it makes up for it.

    After season six, the next couple of seasons they make should revolve around some form of university as the college storyline is growing tedious, and as many of skins oldest and most loyal fans are probably older than 16/17 (just starting college)

    Funnily enough, I still think she is. I don't see any issues with her that I didn't expect. Ok, the virgin thing is a bit of a surprise but body image issues? Yeah, how innovative. I don't think I'll bother with next week. Though knowing me, I probably will.

    Yeah....
    That's the only reason I'm still watching.... he went to my old school; in the year below me.

    I wish he'd get some more screen-time though.

    I knew Rich was fit under that mop. His accent is to die for also.
    As for this series. It's pants. Utter pants.

    I re-watched Series 1 and 2 and by god there is a difference. It reminded me of what Skins used to be and not this regurgitated rubbish.

    Alas. I am still watching it.

    p.s long live Sid.

    just finished watching on 40d....my opinion on this episode was that it was much better than last weeks and had some skins moments, although its still lacking something.
    definitely think the reason is that in series one, you had to an extent the stereotypical characters but they fitted together well as a group of friends making it more realistic and they were clearly good friends so it was easier to get attached
    i think with this series and the last they're trying too hard with different types of characters to make it new and interesting, and although they still try to give them depth by characters episodes it seems forced and rushed, especially as they arent really friends so other than their characters episodes, you dont really get that much of a chance to see them develop. its definitely too "character episode" orientated. also the acting isnt the best...
    on the other hand....nick is a sexy beast XD
    and i know ill be watching it next week..
