Britne Oldford on Her Skins Castmates: "We All Just Sort of Clicked"

Britne Oldford   isn't a crazy person; she just plays one on TV. On   Skins , she’s   Cadie , the character most likely to dismantle a small animal. But in real life, Britne is an oasis of calm and cool. She speaks softly and thoughtfully.

Read on for the deets on Cadie, the   Skins   cast, and a little ukulele named Frederick.    Read More... //

SKINS (MTV) “Cadie” Episode 4 - Preview

Watch a sneak peek of the upcoming episode of MTV’s new series, SKINS "Cadie" Episode 4 which airs Monday February 7 2010 at 10 pm on MTV. Episode Synopsis : SKINS (MTV) "Cadie" Episode 4 – Cadie tries to come to terms with her eating disorder. Series Summary: Skins is funny, sexy, irreverent and genuine to an extreme. It also aspires to be heartbreaking, elegantly witty and subtextual. The show fearlessly pokes fun at parents, teachers, at the crazy rules of friendship and love in the teen years, wonky social rules – and any other random target it chooses. Skins teeters on the edge of acceptability all the time. But along the way, it stumbles across depth and truth – homing in on the difficulties and complications of young people’s lives. Somehow we’re never absolutely sure how. Skins is about loyalty, obligations among friends and the difficulties of growing up in the pressure cooker of expectations which flow from an impatient adult world. Read More... //

Skins USA: Teens "Thank" The PTC As We Die Laughing

Apparently someone else feels the same as we do concerning the controversy surrounding MTV's Skins . Yesterday, the humor website Funny or Die posted a video of teens "thanking" the PTC for the controversy surrounding Skins , because its taboo nature is now fair game for teen consumption. The clip takes jabs at some of the offenses listed by the PTC concerning Skins , which was dubbed the show the "most dangerous show on television" by the parental watch group. Another target in the clip is Taco Bell, who pulled their ads from the show and are now facing their own controversy surrounding their food products not being authentic. We would love to be flies on the walls of the members of the PTC as they watch this clip. They would probably be gagging for breath from an induced rage upon seeing the clip. Speaking of which, here you go! //

Are the Skins US Webisodes Better Than the Actual Show?

If not, it’s time to watch below, poste haste!Jesse Carere got the lion’s share of the dialogue, or should we say "bear’s share?" His bear recording speech was pretty hilarious.... //
