MTV's New Show - Skins

on Jan 25, 2011 @ 10:35 am

I keep seeing articles (on Perez) about this new MTV show "Skins", apparently it's pretty risque and advertisers are pulling their commercials from its time slot. The show was originally a British drama and now they are launching an American version. I haven't heard anything about the show broadcasting in Canada yet but I'm curious enough to watch it online. 

I want to know what all the ruckus is about! Has anyone seen this?

I LOVE the UK version on Jan 26, 2011 @ 12:48 pm

I have been watching online for awhile and its great - definately more 'adult' than what we North Americans would like our teens watching. Its a lot of drugs, sex, relationship problems and great dry humor. A few pairs of uncovered breasts and a couple bums (and lots of panties) plus the language make up the risque factor.

Now I caught the first American episode and was disapointed that is almost a scene by scene copy of the UK show - just watch the original one if thats all they are going to do.....time will tell if they change it for American lifestyle/culture. The humor doesnt seem to translate well - comes of more crude than funny.
