    Great installment of Skins, and it possibly is the best one yet. We got a lot of character development, and character interactions. I've decided that my favorite character is Sid, he just goes well with every single character, and his chemistry with Cassie is just fantastic, I'm liking their slow-moving development, episode by episode. I still don't know how I feel about the Chris/Angie relationship, but all I can say is that teacher must be pretty stupid to go to an out of control high school party and stick around, it's obvious she likes Chris.



    We've got a lot of funny scenes like Chris getting in a fight with the man in his bathtub which resulted in him having to walk around in the street naked. The running scene with Jal & Chris was intense, and it was just perfect build up for Chris' confession about his dead brother, you really feel for him. So far, all these characters are likable, and I'm looking forward to the Sid-centric episode.moreless

  • A entertaining character to find out about.

    9.0
    Chris is one of the more entertaining and funny characters of the Skins bunch and it is very entertaining to learn about him in this episode. So far in the season Chris appears to be the most upbeat character in Skins, even though he is the one that has the least out of all of them. We learn a lot about Chris in the episode. His mother left him and with a father that has shut him out of his life, he has no home of his own. Yet he always looks up and doesn't want people feeling sorry for him. In this episode we notice that Jal has a connection with Chris, as she tries to help him get back with his father. Chris also tells Jal about his past which broke up his family. Also Cassie makes her move on Sid, asking him out on a date which he accepts.moreless
  • Tries too hard to impress...

    6.0
    Skins is based on a great idea. A 18+ show about teenagers. Right.



    But unfortunately, the writers try way too hard. I mean look at this episode. What a mess.



    I'm not against nudity or anything, but it can be quite disturbing after a certain amount. Also, what's with the over the top and really ridicilious drama? How can I feel sorry for Chris after taking so much drugs he managed to kill his own fish? How can I feel sorry for him after his mother left him when it's clear he gives a crap about everything in life?



    I can't. So 90% of the episode was a waste, because the writers constantly tried to make us care. I , for one, didn't.moreless
  • This episode focuses on the character Chris. This is what I think is the weirdest episode of Skins.

    9.5
    The episode starts with Chris naked as usual but high on Viagra in a very funny scene of his never ending boner and Chris feeding his fish some kind of drug. Then we find out Chris's mother left home and disappeared, but have given £1,000 to cover bills before she left. Chris blows all the money on drugs and partying. After losing all the money, getting kicked out of this own house by a homeless man when he was naked and then having to walk to the college naked he realizes he needs to do something. In this episode we find out Chris has a father, Graham. We also meet his stepmom, Mary and half brother. Sammy. When Mary is looking for baby Pictures of Chris to show Jal, She finds a picture of Peter. Peter we find out is Chris dead older brother.moreless
