    Well, Series 5 feels rather "odd" compared to the tour-de-force they put us through in the previous seasons.
    I like the characters, even Alo is ok, but something is definatly off this time...

    Maybe it's just me getting older...

    I was looking forward to season 5 after the first few episodes but this season is not comedic, way too depressing and I dont really feel any empathy for the characters.


    Also whats with the love square going on.

    No. Are you kidding? Okay, the season was less than steller compared to the first three, but i still thought it was relatively enjoyable. There were a couple of really good episodes, i thought it was better than season 4!!! That was so ridiculous, murdering Freddy, not rapping up the season - unrealistic that all the characters just pull out joints every 2 seconds without any jobs. Season 5 was better imo.

    I agree completly. Series 4 sucked imo. Too depressing, too ridiculous, and not having a proper ending. Series 5 was really good.

    Had this season after the third season, I think I wouldn't enjoy it, but season 4 was just ridiculous.. Season 5 was a more happy realistic show, that didn't resort to heavy partying and drugs every **** scene. Liked most of the cast too, except for Liv, oh my god.

    I realy liked this season. Season 4 was just too dark. I think the writers kind of lost their focus there. Some storylines and characters got completely forgotten, others were blown out of proportion. So I'm glad they decided to go with something else this time.


    This gen is much lighter and more fun. It's also the first one where I like all the characters. It's not perfect, but it's different, and in a good way.


    (BTW isn't it series in stead of season? Idk, Brittish is confusing )

    I won't say its bad..it's just not as agressive as the rest. But it still has the Skins quality. But I think the second season of Skins is the best of all seasons.

    It was not the best, definitely, but it was good... really good and makes the next generation look really promising. Most of the characters are very interesting for me, except for Liv... I hope she's the character that gets killed xD

    I think it started off good, in that they were trying something different. I wasn't a big fan of series 3 + 4 because it used the exact same formula as 1 + 2 only the characters weren't as memorable or likable. But series 5 went waaaaay downhill towards the end. I mean a wedding? Really? I'm not going to be watching series 6.

    Seasons 1 and 2 were really good and they had to make something to top that and they did with seasons 3 and 4 they were amazing then they had to do even better with season 5 and they failed. I hate the characters and hate the story but I still watched it.
