Have you heard about MTV's new show Skins?

What do you think about it? A search says it borders violating the child porn laws. Are you going to watch it? I'm thinking I will have to pass... I saw the previews. You??

  • I've seen previews and will not be watching it. It looks like a bunch of 15 year olds running around getting drunk, doing drugs and having relations... yeah... no...

  • I do believe it's a rip off of the british show, they just added more sex. If I want to watch it I'll watch the original, like the office.

  • It's a remake of the British show of the same name. You can catch that on BBC America. My kids and all their friends (late teens) love the British one which is in it's 5th season. Actually I was the one who turned them onto it, I love teen drama and I'm English so I watch BBC America all the time.
    Anyway they were just talking about the American version and saying how it was being cleaned up compared to the British one and couldn't understand why. One said "you'd think it would be the other way around" um no! I think it looks awful and can't understand why the need to remake it. Why not just show the original one?
    There used to be a brilliant and hilarious show on BBC called "Coupling". Again, it was remade with American actors and even thought the script was word for word it stank. Same with "Life on Mars". Why not just show the British versions?
