  • Grace's episode = an hour full of bad acting.

    7.5
    Grace could be a good character. She's not. Why? Because the actress playing her really needs to take some lessons. Everything she says sounds false and wooden which makes it incredibly hard to connect with her and the relationships she has. This episode was goodish, but it certainly wasn't one of my favourites. I didn't particularly like the Shakespeare theme throughout it, so I'll leave that discussion to a minimum.

    I quite liked that David Blood turned out to be Grace's father, it was funny to see him in a different light. I didn't like her mother, she couldn't act either.



    Grace and Rich were a little more convincing in this episode, but since this was the first time I actually got them as a couple...the ending was just crazily rushed. Getting married? My initial reaction was - what. the. fuck. Skins just went all One Tree Hill. I mean it was quite sweet of Rich, but it's just totally unbelievable. I'm not really invested in them...but I do hope they don't get married and realise it's a mistake.



    Otherwise; the Franky/Liv/Matty thing is a little annoying now. We've seen little interaction between Franky and Matty...but apparently they're in love. I still love MIni and Alo. Not sure what I think about these Mini being a lesbian hints...next weeks looks to be intense. I look forward...I think...moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • They perform a Shakespeare play but the entire episode has overtones of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night". Other Shakespearian elements include a father (Blood) disapproving of his daughter's relationship because the fellow is of a lower class or not up to standard. Franky dresses as a boy and plays a sort of lonesome relationship-challenged character like Hamlet.

    • Although David Blood and Grace initially are very stern about not wanting anyone to know about their family, after the play is done, they start conversing about family matters in the hallways, with other students walking around them.
