    Good point tbh. I was wondering if they'd ever have an East Asian on it for once, since they never have IIRC. To make next series/generation more interesting, they could also include:

    - A Christian person, to see how their religion clashes with the Skins lifestyle
    - An overweight person
    - A trans person, and not just slightly genderqueer like Franky is/was, but proper trans

    And probably some others if I can think of any.
    yeahhh i was thinking it would be good if they had like.. an 'unattractive' person on it. Like, even the ones who are meant to be weird (like Frankie or JJ or Pandora) are still generally quite conventionally attractive. idk.

    I thought that Nick's episode sucked so much, only the last 10-15 minutes was worth watching and I felt like it picked up.

    but sadly, they ruined the best character who had so much potential. he was a jock last series, and now he's just as bland and generic as a background character. if it wasn't for Matty, I would have no idea what they would have done with Nick.

    also the Nick and Alex kiss was incredibly pointless

    Yeah, I totally get where you're coming from. On doing a little online research I came across these videos and conversations which have reminded me of what they were like with each other last series. But it's funny cos before seeing these recently I'd completely forgotten that they'd even had much of a close connection with each other for so long.

    Sorry...even with that video I don't see it. In the previous series they were just friends....and now! That sex scene was so cringeworthy. Frankie just annoys me now....shes so different from the previous series, when she was actually quite an interesting character. Now she just seems like a 15 year old who doesn't know what she wants.

    I think the idea was that everyone assumed shed lost her virginity, but she was yet not ready to. So she felt pressured into it, and uncomfortable, and of course losing virginity for a girl (especially if the other person is unaware) can really be quite unpleasant. Once she'd lost it....then yeah she doesn't care anymore. But i get your point...if they were to bring up a teen pregnancy i thought it wiuld be Liv. Although...are we to assume she's keeping the baby....even without telling Allo?

    Also...did anyone feel that the beginning of the last episode was so rude! I thought were supposed to like the main characters, but I thought they were the bitchy ones who had turned up to some random house party that wasn't their thing and just made fun of them....oh and stole their medicine....

    imo skins has gone down from season 3.....some of season 4 was bearable, and stopped watching half way through last season.....reading this thread has given me nostalgia so tempted to start watching it through from the beginning again :cool:

    agree, i think it was supposed to make them look "cool" but it just made them look like *****

    The guy who plays Nick is a good actor, I hope he goes on to do something better than this crap. Mini is also a good actor, and I can't decide on Franky.

    Thank you for the spoiler!
    No offence, but if you can't watch an already aired episode on time, then maybe you shouldn't be looking in this thread. Anyway, I already saw them kissing many weeks ago in the long trailer for the series.

    Negged for giving out some advice? Thanks :rolleyes:

    To be fair, when I think about it it's maybe not that unrealistic. I remember when I was at school, I knew a couple like that who were just good friends for ages, and suddenly one day out of the blue and much to my surprise they were dating. Then again, I do agree that the buildup to the Franky/Nick pairing should have been made more obvious earlier to the general viewers, because lately it just seems a bit rushed.

    How many times do they have to say the 'f' word in each sentence :nothing:

    and i agree, it would be good be good if they brought in a dark skinned black girl and an asian to spice things up a bit

    Are the writers intentionally saying 'head ****' 'mind ****' and other variations, multiple times in every episode?

    Guilty pleasure TV.

    I try to stay away but I'm drawn to those cheesy storylines like a moth to a flame.

    I'm sorry but I didn't really neg you, not that I know, I might have pressed the neg button by accident as I was online with my phone.
    However, I was in Spain and couldn't watch the new episode and I didn't mean to offend you nor to be rude.

    However, I have just watched the Nick episode and liked it a lot!
    Awesome soundtrack, and the girl Nick sleeps with is so pretty

    I've always liked Skins, and I still find it OK at the moment. I guess I'm hoping for it to get better again.

    Haha, yeah, I don't even know anyone in real life who even says those phrases

    Me too! I really have no idea what's gonna happen between those too so I'm excited to find out. Looks like Alo gets a new girlfriend, or some sort of fling, and then I wonder if Mini is gonna keep her baby and how long will it take her to tell Alo? Will seeing Alo with the new girl make her jealous and feel differently for Alo?

    Who knows! But I think Mini won't keep the baby...
