  • Alo is one of the best characters of the series, no doubt.

    Another good episode. Once again, nothing big really happened but I like Alo, and it was an entertaining 40 minutes. For starters, I hated his mother. She was a bitch. Alo may be a bit useless sometimes, but the way she treated him was horrible, and really nasty. Almost to an unbelievable extent. She took his dog away, made him leave college and made him feel completely shit. I liked how he confronted her at the end, and judging by her face it made an impact. His relationship with his father was less of an issue, but the heartache was hard to watch from Alo's part...and I'm glad they made up at the end.

    The highlight of the episode has to be the interactions between Mini and Alo. My friend suggested she wanted them to be a couple and I think they work. I think they're my favourite of this cast too. It was great to see Mini lighten up a bit, and comfort Alo later in her own way. Franky still annoys me, but the scene with her and Liv was quite well done. It was the first time someone actually confronted Franky about her sexuality and I liked this development. Rich and Grace just aren't convincing enough for me, which I'll talk more about in the next episode review. And she can't act. Period.

    The opening scene was in your face. And very odd. But hey, it is Skins...

    So yeah, good episode. The problem with this series is that each episode seems to focus too much on a single character, which is why the series seems to be lacking an overall storyline. Except the Franky/Liv/Matty love triangle which I'm not too fond of.moreless
