Generation One - Classy, wild, determined. The characters were wild, but there was a precedent with the characters. Although they did drugs, had sex, and went to ravenous parties during all hours of the night, they knew it was something they'd outgrow. Some characters did, earlier than others actually, while others didn't. The storylines were based around love, family issues, mental illness, and death. So the question becomes, how can you outdo this for future shows?
They decided to keep the cast fresh (which at first I HATED because of my love for the first generation) but then I fell in love with the second generation. It was a complete surprise, given that I waited almost a year before watching it, but I am extremely glad I did.
Like real life, "Skins" became darker, wilder, and extremely heartbreaking. The characters were even more lovable than the original (I love them all, but hey, the new is the new, right?) which kept the show interesting. The stories more WAAAAAY more intense, the relationships were deadly (yes, deadly), and it was a struggle for us as viewers to connect with them, because -- at times -- we either found ourselves hating them, or loving them.Read more ›
One of the worst parts of this season is that it is only 8 episodes and not only was there so much left unexplained, but it was like they figured they couldn't come up with an ending. A show so complex and gripping as this and they couldn't write anymore? The meat of the show centers on Naomi and Emily's relationship which has become rocky because of cheating. And the rest is composed of Freddie and Effy's relationship. This was the central story in season 3, but now has the added effect that Effy is bipolar or something similar. All the other episodes are almost filler because the storyline barely plays into these two relationships. J.J's episode literally has nothing to do with anything else in the entire show before or after in terms of plot.Read more ›
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.

Season 4 was a disappointment from the other three seasons. I would still recommend buying it, but keep your expectations low.Published on February 27, 2012 by New Era Goldens
This was an amazing purchase. I just love this show and it is by far better then the American Version of it. The only drawback to this season was that it was not long enough. Read morePublished on November 17, 2011 by ETP1978
