Well, it just didn't look like something that I thought I would enjoy because at the time I had so many shows to watch already on my schedule so I wasn't in the mood. Honestly I didn't give Skins a chance.
Fast forward to today (a year later). I recently received some screeners for Season 3 of Skins, which premieres tomorrow, August 6, at 9pm on BBC America, and thought it was time to give the show that has received so many praises another chance.
And so I spent the last week catching up on season 1 and 2 of Skins in order to be able to write my review for season 3.
Well let me tell you, I stand corrected. Not only is Skins a really amazing show, I have become addicted to it. I could not put the remote down and would just watch episodes back to back, cursing whenever I finished a DVD and had to wait for the next batch from Netflix.
It was like, where have you been Skins? How did I not know you before?
I will admit that it takes a couple of episodes to really get into the show, but from episode 1 I realized that I hadn't given Skins a fair chance the first time around. However, I am sort of glad that I only discovered it now because I got to watch both seasons back to back, which was such a great experience.
So what is Skins about? It follows the lives of a few teenagers as they deal with life, love, and heartbreaks. But as opposed to a teenage show on the CW, Skins is gritty and feels true. The cast doesn't look like it has been taken from a magazine page, but actually feels authentic and is relatable. Skins is also not afraid to deal with a lot of taboo subjects that teenagers are faced with truthfully.
