    Of course the plot is exaggerated for entertainment. If the show merely depicted average teenagers, it would be extremely boring. The first generation was great, the second was marginally less good, but nonetheless still very entertaining. However, the third generation was just a mess, the characters were just boring. That said, I'm very excited for the 7th and final season, with the cast being from the first two generations. Full Review »

    I really liked Skins, it is very realistic and portrays what teens are like in Britain, while at the same time it provides humor and drama that keeps you entertained throughout the whole episode. Full Review »

    The fact that so many people are using the anonymity of being British to say how realistic this is says 1000x more about British teenagers than this show does. Now and again, I've experienced moments like this show, but on the whole? Not really very realistic at all. That said, the first 2 seasons (with the original cast) are brilliantly made, well written, good stories and good acting. Clever and funny. But people need to stop pretending their lives are this exciting and that they didn't spend last weekend writing coursework rather than taking drugs and having sex. The weekend before, however.... I am 18 and British, btw. Full Review »
