Skins America lacks believability. The lines are poorly delivered and the actors are definitely not as good as those in the UK version. Tony's character will never work, neither will Cassie's. I just don't believe that they are those people, because they are not convincing.

American Skins: A bland, watered-down version of the original. How typical. You can see they've had more money to use than in the UK. But the feeling is completely gone, and since it's made in the US (and by MTV) it will be completely censored. And why all the beautiful people? The point of the original was to show regular kids with problems in their lives. And the US show seems to (not surprisingly) have gathered a group of young good looking kids with no talent. I'm slamming the US version. Hard. It even seems to have used the same plot, the same kind of scenes: buying the pot, driving the car into the water (not a regular car though, but a US size Escalade), the boy talking on the phone while in the mosque etc. It's amazing how immediately when a US version of a show is made it loses all connection with its characters and all the emotion. And a part of the UK version was that it was raunchy, with young actors pushing their limits, something the US version will never be.

Not familiar with this 'Skins', but I can't say it's too exciting to have another show about teenagers and, like, oh-my-god sex, and, like, oh-my-god drugs. My bet is it won't be funny, 'edgy', smart, or relatable, but it will try really, really hard to be.

Wow so MTV's skins first episode is a scene for scene remake of the original. If that is any indication of how it is treating this show than it will suck. They need to adapt it so it fits into American youth culture

This Katie character will never be Cassie, will just have to get my Skins fix with the new UK series 3.

Somehow skins just doesn't seem believable when it's not set in Bristol. And the whole cast looks like it's trying way too hard too be trendy. Afraid it just won't work for me. Plus I'm terrified they'll ruin Chris so am not going to watch.

Russell Brand is actually hilarious and SNL should be good, but that new show Perfect Couples might be worth checking out

Do yourself a favor and watch the original UK Skins. Ugh, this US versions feels off and terrible. Maybe not enough drug use and sex on it.

The feature about Perfect Couples actually makes it look fun. Maybe I will watch it, then.
