Review: Skins

Skins is a very well constructed TV series centred on the lives of a UK teenagers. The action takes place in Bristol and the group Skins focuses on brings together a popular teenager, a very smart and beautiful young girl with some family issues, an anorexic teenager as well as a party boy and few other characters. Through these characters, the creators of the show try to speak about teenagers today, and the dramas that they are facing. In my opinion, they succeed!

Skins is an original British TV series of undeniable quality. A bunch of anonymous actors give life to a crazy universe where several young adolescents from the UK live their teen lives intensely. This series is basically a show full of negative aspects, like the self destructive life styles that it presents, but at the same time rich in complex characters and compelling stories.

If you are looking for a teen drama and you are bored with the American style of teen series, than Skins is ideal for you. It is unrestricted, blunt; there is a lot of sex, nudity, drugs, unleashed parties, drama, and romance, all in a show brought to life by a cast of characters that together form a united group of lifelong friends: Skins!

You will be fascinated right from the very first episode because of the illustrated realism and the inevitable drama. You'll have the opportunity to watch the lives of a group of teenagers from Britain, without any censorship, fairy tales, princes and princesses.

Besides the young and talented actors, another important aspect of the series is the soundtrack that perfectly fits in the artistic landscape.

Verdict:

Skins is a dramatic, nostalgic, real and painful TV series. It is a series that can't be watched by everyone, mostly because of the language and the uncensored life stories that are exposed without any restraint. Although some might contradict me, I think Skins, in its entirety, is an educative show particularly because it doesn't avoid reality and drives young people to reflect on what they are really doing.
