Editorial Reviews

Skins is back, and the critical darling now has a brand new cast! It’s another year at Roundview College and it brings with it a new class of drug-fuelled, party-seeking, sexually inquisitive teenagers. The new queen bee is the beautiful and mysterious Effy. The charming but volatile Cook and his best mate Freddie have fallen under her spell, leaving their friend JJ caught in the middle as they fight for her attention. Identical twins Katie and Emily aren’t as similar as they look – Katie wants to gain her individuality, and when Emily is abandoned by her, she finds a friend in the beautiful idealist Naomi. Kooky Pandora is the group’s sweetheart, she finds love with Thomas; but is their relationship over before it has begun?

I LOVE this show, and particularly this season, but I was very disappointed when I received the DVDs in the mail to find out that much of the music that was in the original UK episodes had been changed to different songs for the US release. I don't know why this is, I am sure there is some reason, but having seen the UK versions (and this is the only difference as far as I know) it seemed like the music in these episodes just didn't fit quite right. The soundtrack can change the entire scene and that was the case for a lot of scenes. The original UK episodes had amazing soundtracks. This version, not so much. I don't know if I should be that disappointed in the change of music but I am. I really want to buy the UK version just for that reason. The show itself is great, and this season has a phenomenal storyline. The first few episodes are a little cheesy, but it really starts to get good at about the fourth episode. Great show, just wish they had kept the original soundtrack for the US release.

The third season of Skins does not disappoint. Though it bids farewell to the first generation of characters, it introduces us to the equally-engaging Generation 2. As sad as I was to see some of our favorite characters like Sid, Cassie, and Tony go, season three gives us many new great characters including Freddy (the boy-next-door skater), Cook (the party-hardy bad boy), and the twins Emily and Katie (who may look identical but couldn't be more different from each other).

However, not all Gen 1 characters were left behind - I was thrilled to see Effy Stonem brought back, as well as her dorky and hilarious pal Pandora. Season three really revolves around Effy and her transformation from girl to woman (however rocky that may be). Almost as soon as the season begins she finds herself the center of a destructive love triangle with best friends Freddy and Cook, but as the season draws to a close, we get a glimpse that there may be more going on in Effy's mind than just your average teenage angst. Kaya Scodelario perfects the enigmatic Effy in this season and continues to make her, in my opinion, one of the most intriguing characters of the whole show.

My favorite additions to this season are Freddy and Cook. Freddy (Luke Pasqualino) has instant chemistry with Effy and their attraction gives the season a lot of its momentum as well as drama, causing problems for several other characters in its wake. Cook, played to absolute perfection by Jack O'Connell, is an instant bad-boy favorite. He drinks, smokes, and curses his way through life not caring about anything or anyone, meanwhile vying for Effy's affections, much to Freddy's dismay.

This show has always had the trifecta of plotline, character development, and dialogue.

This puts all teen-drama American shows to shame in terms of how far they're willing to go. This is a fantastic show but parents should be aware there is a lot of cursing and nudity. I would recommend this show more for young adult age. Very addictive. If you enjoy this show, I would also recommend checking out the BBC show Misfits.

FYI for those who have seen Seasons 1 and/or 2, the characters are entirely different. Every 2 seasons they switch out all the characters for new ones. Personally, I find Seasons 3 and 4 to be better than the original seasons 1 and 2 but both are worth watching and owning in my opinion.

Excellent season, different from the previous 2, but pretty good. Great themes BUT do not get the BBC America because scenes are deleted and the music is completely different--you're better off watching it on youtube.

This show is.... well AMAZING. I sat down to watch one esp and now im on season 4. The people who are in this show play the parts amazing and the story behind it is even better. I find myself laughing sometimes and then crying others. No other show does this.

A+++++

You already know Tony's sister Effy, and her friend Pandora Moon if you have seen up til season 3. Now meet their classmates from roundview college (high school is college in UK).

The season starts with 3 boys all seeing Effy for the first time, and those friends all want her. While one of them knows he doesn't stand a chance with her, tension builds up between the other two friends all season, while her other friends all deal with their own problems.

A gay girl woos a straight girl, while her twin sister never not had a boyfriend. an autistic teen tries to feel normal, a boy from the Congo fights to live in Bristol, ect. All in all this is a very good season. I little less of a downer than season 2 was with Tony's recovery. Skins season 3 still has those Oh S*** moments, but it doesn't gloom over the mood of every episode like a dark cloud as I felt with season 2.

The first two seasons of Skins were REALLY good. The characters were fully developed, they all had very intricate back stories that really helped explain why they did the things they did. The chemistry between characters was excellent. Most of the characters knew each other before the show aired. And the writers did a great job.

Season 3 is quite different. Most of the characters are just meeting each other for the first time. The chemistry is pretty lack luster and there is a severe lack of back story to explain anything and those we do see aren't as "horrible" as it the first two seasons to help explain why these kids are so messed up. It feels like the writers ran out of material so instead of coming up with engrossing story lines they just decided to add more sex, more violence, and more drug use for no good reason.
