MTV'S SKINS - TV review

Eura in the opening scene of Skins

I have mixed feeling about the show. For starters, the first episode was much like the orginal with a few changes. The big one..NO MAXXIE. And I'm not sure if this female version just isn't the lesbian from hell. Which is quite a shame. I can think of better lesbian storylines.

But it is SKINS...so you can expect the crass, the unstable and undoubtedly can come off as being a nuisance.


The only bright shining stars..other than the music is Stanly (Daniel Flaherty) and Cadie (Britne Oldford) (original version Sid & Cassie). Naturally, Stan has his Michael Cera thing going for him and Cadie, well, she's delicate and absolutely beautiful. The rest of the cast..just animals...it seems..at least at the moment.

But I'll watch. I absolutely fell in love with "My Girls" by Animal Collective in the very first scene. The music is just as much a character to the show as the cast. Oddly, the actress who plays Tony's sister comes off very Hannah Murray.

Eleanor Zichy plays mysterious Eura who is Tony's sister

Hopefully Daniel will make Stanly his own character.
