Provocative, sassy, real, Skins portrayed how being a teenager is actually like. No pink clouds, no fantasy lives; this series showed it like it is.
The first six seasons focus on the three generations, whilst the seventh that premiered last week, will take us back to three characters: Effie from seasons 1-4, Cook from series 3-4 and of course Cassie from seasons 1-2.
Skins, has had all sorts of characters: losers, misfits, artists, popular kids – you name it. There is at least one character for someone to connect to. The issues that the series touches are not those that an ordinary teenager would deal (Love triangles, lesbian relationships, drugs, mental breakdowns, murders, suicides) – yet Skins is real. Raw. Honest.
Out of all the characters that have passed from Skins, these three make a very interesting choice. It is left to see whether (in the words of Gaspar Noe) time will have changed everything....
