Skins is a very relatable show in some ways.
almost every teen goes through at least 1 thing that Skins does in a season.

of course the US version will not be anything like the UK version due to censorship and all that, i mean, family guy barely gets away with half the stuff they do.
i predict the US version to be a lot like Degrassi, and I hate when people compare Skins to Degrassi, Skins is a hell of a lot better then that show, it's not as cheesy and lame
worst comparison ever. Degrassi and Skins arent in the same league, they will never be.
I hope that the us version at least does a bit of justice, to the brilliance that its the original show.
and I agree, even if you arent much of the party animal you can relate to some skin character, especially the ones from the first generation.
The first generation, especially Cassie will always have a place in my heart.

Well the us skins isnt going to be near the uk skins because of the different laws
the FCC in the states are very strict about what goes on air so unless its going to be on a channel you have to order and it comes on late, then ots most likely to be similar to degrassi

i wasnt saying that degrassi is anywhere near the uk skins, because its not.. just that the us version will probably be similar

what channel is the us skins supposed to air on anyway ?

MTV I think.
I still don´t get, why it was necessary to make an US version, part of the appeal for me of the original Skins, was the fact, that was British. And the OC jokes were so funny

I´m more excited about the Skins movie, than the new cast, and US cast.

Well if that´s the case I´m waiting for the jokes of Joel McHale of "The Soup".

^I've it's a bit of a remake. You can tell which characters are supposed to emulate the UK version. I'm not planning on watching it though

There's no way I'm watching the US version. Why did they have to re-make it? And MTV of all people? Just terrible. It would have been better if they had just re-aired the UK series on US television.

They have re-aired the UK version on BBC America but they cut some of the more racy senes to be able to show it on American television. That's the exact reason the American version won't work. It's the exact same show but with American actors that can't act! If they adapted it to work for an American audience, found actors who could actually act, and it wasn't on MTV, them maybe, just maybe, the series might actually be worth watching. This, however, is pure S-H-I-T!!!

They took the idea of "American version" quite literally.
The acting and un-original storyline is obviously boll*cks but I kind of like the way the characters are styled, especially Michelle and that other girl is probably supposed to represent Jal?
The cobrasnake-styled photoshoot also looks nice.
I might actually watch the first episode ^^

I really don't think the American version is for me.
But anyway, I really loved the 4th season. Even though it was quite heavy compared to the other two. Freddie's episode had me thinking about it days after I watched it!
