    The uk version is awesome. This is an mtv remake. it has fail written all over it.

    it's about high school kids.

    there's sex
    there's drugs
    there's drinking

    the whole 9.


    the mass media is a bunch of tards. make your own opininos.

    the uk version is pretty good.. but like b said, the us version will likely be a flop

    i haven't watched it. it's going to get watered down into bullshit though. mtv wants money, no sponsors means no money.

    i'm sure the mtv version sucks.

    the uk version is like it would be on hbo/showtime here. nudity, swears, the whole 9.

    Skins makes the Jersey Shore look like a religious program.

    except skins is scripted. hence all the issues with it being considered "child porn". they are writing in scenes where the actors are doing shit. simple solution, give the character aids and write him out. hire someone legal. not that fucking hard of a fix.

    nobody said they are. producers create events on jersey shore. but skins is straight up scripted. they don't pretend it's real. it's just like watching any other sitcom like Dexter or something like that.

    Haven't watched it but I read something that compared it to the movie "Kids" from back in the day.

    saw that review as well..... and well, while i haven't seen the us version, the UK version is nothing like kids.

    And it doesn't have Kaya Scodelario (Effy) in it, and therefore, i'm not really interested in watching it. Plus, it's on mtv, so it pretty much HAS to suck.

    which basically means if i was still with my ex, i would probably be stuck watching this shit.

    being single after an LTR sucks, but there are some benefits. lol

    the difference is that the actors arent REALLY having sex. and being on MTV there's no nudity. so im not sure how anyone can say it's child porn. thats a huge stretch.

    but the show sucks. its a bunch overdramatized stupid high school borderline emo bs.
