Okay, so I JUST finished watching a trailer of a new show on MTV: Skins.

For people who haven’t seen it or heard of it, it’s a teen drama originally from England and quite popular. It’s dark and edgy and freaking hilarious haha. For the people who know of Skins, this scares me.

It’s not even REAL Skins; they’re doing the first season with American actors. They’re revamping it basically. The trailer looks okay, but I don’t think this version is going to do Skins any justice honestly. I don’t know how you’ll be able to do all the funny nude scenes or make insults without being vulgar (which makes it more funny). But I guess that’s my opinion. Tell me yours.

Watch the trailer here: http://www.mtv.com/videos/misc/589184/skins-alternate-sneak-peek.jhtml

MTV is on cable so they can show anything they want. I’ve only seen the original Skins a couple times but I definitely admired it for it’s honesty. MTV usually messes things up though.

I liked the other one.
Never seen the american one but tbh when americans do tv shows from elsewhere, it just doesn’t seem to cut it for me.

Skins UK or bust! MTV’s version is pathetic.

They’re both really stupid. Everyone is saying how great the UK version, but it’s just a bunch of bullshit teenagers. Very few teens even act like that anyways. I don’t think either deserve the hype they are getting.

On be half of the U.S., we are saying sorry to the U.K. I totally agree with you LindsayKaye, about it being disgusting. It’s banned from my house, not that I would even watch it with my parents in the house.

US skins sucked, that’s why it got cancelled. it wasn’t as good, but i will admit, as the series progressed, and they used their own plots instead of copying, it was better. but these actors just don’t measure up. american tony is SHIT compared to UK tony. everything just felt forced and wasn’t that funny.

I didn’t think it was that bad. True, I never watched Skins UK. True, I can withstand horrendous amounts of bad television and acting. But aside from the fact that they recycled the entire concept (which I will admit did miff me a bit), it wasn’t terrible. It was a sort of guilty pleasure.
