Tv Season Info
But even clueless old dudes are able to see (with their bifocals on) when a show is poorly acted, clumsily executed and overflowing with dreary characters. Unfortunately, that's the problem plaguing Skins.
Skins is a bit clunky and even dated at times. Nor does it feel all that grounded in the real world, where it badly wants to be.
I just don't see that unpredictability in the generically pretty - but tame and even tepid - American remake.
Skins often plays like a middle-class Gossip Girl, but its characters are much more resonant, more believable as high school kids.
For all their brash talk and apparent indifference to the possibilities of consequence, the Skins kids are all trying to figure out who they are, and even the most self-assured remain more clueless than they let on.
