I don't want to watch American Skins. I know I shouldn't judge it when I haven't seen it, but I bet that it's crap. Sorry. But Skins is such a British TV programme; everything about it- from the characters to the story lines- are so British. British teens (from what I've seen) are different to those in America. I just imagine that the US version of Skins is a bit pants. I don't see why the Americans have to have their own adaptations of UK TV programmes. I heard about an American version of The Inbetweeners ages ago. That, again, would completely fail if it were adapted for American television...
Sorry, I'll stop ranting now.

^^IA that Americans need to stop remaking British shows . . . except for The Office; I actually prefer the American one! It's odd because I adored Ricky Gervais in Extras.

^It starts in January. The 11? 21? 22? I don't remember off the top of my head.

I know, my Christmas Wish is that Hannah Murray reprises her role in the Skins Movie.

US Skins doesn't sound very appealing to me but maybe I'll give it a try, at least for one episode.
What I don't understand is why they tried to copy the 1st generation cast, they could've just used the same concept and create brand new characters, just like UK Skins does every two series..

There will be a French Version of Skins.

I auditioned for it, I didn't get the role.
but I got to read the script and its interesting. Although I'm sure its not going to be very good, we're not very good in france for tv shows plus the original version was so cool... but yeah just wanted to share the news

A French version? That should be interesting. I'd watch it if it were translated into English!

What I dislike about the American version of "Skins" (from what I've seen from the preview) is that it tries too hard to follow the plot line from the British version, at least in the first few episodes. Cassie's OD, the car crash, etc. I don't mind an American interpretation, but I wish they had created a new plot with new characters instead of trying to recreate the success of Nicholas Hoult et al.

^^ woah that really came out of the blue . I'm not overly excited by it, as a rule the original will always be better than the copy, people should innovate more instead of duplicating

I`ve been searching for details about it all over the internet, but still not much info going on.

US Skins = US Top Gear
Both rubbish.

^I second that!!!

^^Tthe S5 promo instantly reminded me of the new Big Love opener from last season. I wonder if any of the Skins creators were "inspired" or if it's just a coincidence.
