F16 - The Kids Ain't All Right by jbwarner86 F16 - The Kids Ain't All Right by jbwarner86
"Skins" is generating much controversy on MTV for allegedly depicting genuine debaucherous teenage behavior. But personally, I never knew anybody in my high school who felt embarrassed by their friends' virginity or hung around lesbian bars on the weekend.

Panel three introduces another new character - Shawn Oakley, Derek Takahashi's aforementioned boyfriend. Judging by the promotional photos I saw for this show, the producers seem to be under the impression that teenagers don't wear shirts.

The controversy also attributed to the fact that most of the cast members were under 18, which drew accusations of child porn

The Parents Television Council would be dancing in the streets if a terrorist decimated the entire cast and crew of this show in a hail of gunfire, or blew up the studio.

I'm hoping that doesn't happen, but I think I'm vastly outnumbered.

I watched a bit of Skins once.
Dear God. Only the worst of the worst teenagers would do such stupid/melodramatic shit.

I have yet to dare watch this. Nor have I watched the British original. So I have no idea if this is an Americanized version or if they imported the real deal. One of these days, I'll have to check it out just to see what the fuss is about.

Ahaha your awesome man!
Is Skins different in the US by any chance? I think the shows pretty much dead in the uk, not to give away spoilers, but most of us brits were saddened by the complete change of cast starting with season 3-4 then saddened once more when one of the main characters got the 'axe'. But judging by that american logo, it might actually be an entirely different show altogether in the US?

No, we can entirely blame MTV for this. They're taking a critically acclaimed British show, and making it into trash.

I haven't seen much of it, but I'm pretty sure they don't go around like it's an Ambercrombie catalog. Though that could just be because of how cold England is.

Nearly every teen-targeted show on TV misinterprets the life of adolescence. When it's not the syrupy tween shows where nothing happens, it's the vile shows where barbarism is the norm.

Shawn looks like he stepped out of an Abercrombie and Fitch poster. :XD:

I bet Steve's family life could generate a dozen storylines...

I've only heard of Skins, never seen it, but it sounds like another show that pushes the envelope to far with shock value and the generalization of raunchy party life. It's like a porn movie: no one picks up random women with a few stupid lines in real life.

Don't watch it; it's another bad attempt at Americanizing a British show. Just like the History Channel's stupid remake of Top Gear.
