Skins: My British TV Obsession

Thanks to Netflix's instant option and a recommendation by someone in a class I had during my final quarter of my senior year of college, I was introduced to 'Skins.' I've quickly fallen in love with this show. It focuses on a group of friends in high school who are all coping with the dysfunctions that come with  life. Each episode centralizes on a specific character, which is the best is one of the best aspects of the show, because it allows you to understand each character's motive through their own point of view. The show does involve sex, drugs, and alcohol, but the show itself is about much more than that. It's about life and how it changes and how it is full of good and bad experiences.

I've watched some of the MTV version of 'Skins' and it's complete crap. Don't waste your time with it. It's not even close to being what the British version is.

Goodness gracious Skins UK is my obsession.
USA is a huge disgrace.

I'm almost finished with series 2 of Skins! I don't know what I'll do without those characters!
