I am American and just discovered Skins recently and I absolutely love it. I had to do some research though because I didn't understand a lot of the slang like "face" and the school system (in the US 'college' is university and I didn't quite get at first why the characters seemed like they were in high school) I have to say, this show is the best teen angst drama I've ever see, you Brits know how to do it. You would never see Skins on American television depicted this way and it's really refreshing (although I'm 25 but remember those years well), I think I am addicted and want to convert my friends and have our own Skins parties, after all we have to represent America.
No hard feeling about Osama: The Musical, although not to sound typical but I think it's too soon for tongue and cheek humor about it. We're still sore.
More important than that, if they kill of Chris I will vow never to watch the show again. It's been a emotional roller coaster so far with lots of not so happy endings and killing him off would just be over the top. I'm pissed that it seems the writers are building us up that maybe everything will work out just to break our hearts. So not good but I'll continue to watch the next two episodes.
Long Live Chris Miles!
