Yesterday, the Parents Television Council declared MTV's 'Skins' to be "the most dangerous show for teens."
TV Squad caught up with the young actors, who were already well aware of their newfound "dangerous" label. "In a good way we're dangerous -- dangerously in love," joked Ron Mustafaa, who plays Abbud. "We're dangerously sexy," added Danny Flaherty (Stanley).
In all seriousness, though, the teenage cast was very insistent that their hard-partying onscreen alter-egos can provide some real lessons for their peers and parents alike. "It would even be a great conversation opener," Flaherty said.
Besides, the show hasn't even premiered yet. "These parents haven't seen the show as far as I know, they've seen previews," said Rachel Thevenard (Michelle). Indeed, PTC President Tim Winter's complaint took special note of the marketing campaign, saying it "makes light of lying to parents and participating in all manner of harmful, irresponsible, illegal and adult-themed behavior."
Judge for yourself when 'Skins' premieres on Monday night at 10PM on MTV. In the meantime, watch our video to see what else the cast had to say about the PTC's statement.
