So I’ve just watched the first episode of Skins Series 5 and what can I say???? Well to be honest nothing good!
First five to ten minutes, two words crossed my mind instantly Mean Girls and it seriously resembled it a lot! I love Mean Girls it was one of those classic movies LOL (I know it sounds weird but it was an awesome movie!) that shouldn’t be remade as it will never live up to the original.
But here we have E4’s hit show some what doing the Queen B storyline with added extras. It sounds very typical: Adopted girl (homosexual fathers) who has an issue with finding her own personality (both mentally and sexually), she is the odd ball out of the pack, queen b takes her in only to embarrass her when she feels her superiority is being threatened by the odd ball.
So yes are the Brits now trying to follow an typical American storyline because they have run out of ideas? Well this is the fifth series and to be perfectly honest the second generation (third and forth series) of skins were pretty SHIT, I mean they could have done a lot more with Effy’s character but they just made her in to a whore. But this post isn’t about that.
Well the end of the episode was the odd ball found some friends and managed to nab one from queen b!
Still nothing will live up to the first generation, the Tony Stonem (the protagonist of the series) of the series.
