Default Re: Skins (New Drama Coming To BBC America)

Personally, I don't think Skins is that great. Certainly not as far as scripting and plot are concerned. Storylines jump from episode to episode with developments suddenly coming out of the blue with little to no foreshadowing (e.g. the thing with Sid's dad in series 2). Sure, they attempted at better continuity in series two, with the whole Tony-Michelle-Sid-Cassie thing but it grew boring really quickly.

Indeed, series two suffered greatly since it didn't have the 'fresh' appeal that series one survived on. I think a part of it stemmed from the writers not knowing what to do with the characters (all caricature stereotypes) and simply jumped from story to story with no clear idea what direction those characters were going to take.
