Movies and TV, skins


I love the Brits. And Netflix. And semi-trashy but super entertaining television. What do you get when you combine all three? Skins. It is like The O.C. minus the beach, but with much more sex drugs and cursing because there is no FCC in the UK.

As a post grad, sometimes you just need to watch something entertaining and that makes you feel better about your own life. Skins will do just that. It is funny, and dramatic and full of so many plot twists I could hardly keep up. Not to mention the adorable British actors. It has something for everyone, the little nerdy kid, the crazy anorexic chick, the musical black chick, the sheltered indian dude, you get the idea.
Please give the show a try in your very sparse but valuable spare time. You will not regret it!

  1. Skins is such a great show! That show is so fucking crazy it makes The OC look like Teletubbies. The American version looks terrible though.

  2. There is an American version, and it looks godawful and boring! The Americans are always taking the great television shows and watering them down to nothing of interest. 😦
