I'm guessing you're looking for a deeper answer than her being anorexic and just generally mental?

Same, I don't think any group could top the first.

The Gen2 cast was great, they just got really sucky stories. And whoever approved that finale to their Gen should just be....words cant describe it.

So the parent council is making such a big deal about the US version, I think lke 5 major sponsers have pulled out thus far because of the show being accused of being child porn.

They would have a heart attack if they saw the UK version. The US really needs to implement new tv ratings and get over things like this.

That's the thing in the U.S.; they are okay with ultra-violence, but any skin shown will be met with outrage and pulled advertisement.

Other countries that don't make such a fuss about it have the right idea. Kids in England see an exposed breast and they don't freak out like we do here cuz it's all taboo.

I hear the US version is terrible anyway. So who cares?

I tried watching this show and Im not into it at all.

I really dislike everyone in the cast except for the lesbian chick, and the only reason I like the lesbian chick is because I like lesbian porn a lot. I look forward to downloading the lesbian scenes when they get put up on the web. If theyre hot enough, Ill be rooting for the show to stay on the air in the hopes that they film more lesbian sex and/or makeout scenes. If they suck, then this show can suck it.

If the women in the show are under 18 I can maybe see an argument against the show.

However aren't there laws about that in film and TV?

In America, with parental consent you can show skin if you are at least 16, a la Mena Suvari in American Beauty. She was 16 when she filmed that topless scene.

Japan doesn't mosaic ALL their porn. Yes, I've seen some uncensored ones.

Keira Knightley was 16 when she flashed her tattybojangles in The Hole as well.

People freakout over violence mostly over here in Europe whereas it seems in the states you guys freakout more over sex.

Maybe they think that some kids seeing it on TV will make them think it's "ok"

Man if they freaked out at Skins they will go nuts over British channel E4 (channel that made original skins) other two teen shows The Inbertweeners and Misfits.

One, when copied, leads to death while the other leads to life. Hmm... sounds like somebody's got their priorities backwards.
