This is amazing – a promo for the first series of Skins, one of my current obsessions.

This promo is only possible because of the nature of the show. Its completely rough and natural, ruthless and romantic. This promo is exactly that.   brrat brrat brrat

I watched two episodes of skins last night that kept me awake for hours, kept my mind re-running over it all the next day.


The begining of Season 2 was a bit flat, but the the last five episodes have been insane. I am utterly crushing on Cassie…and when I think about it, all of the cast. Jal and Cassie’s episodes were eye-wateringly sad. I felt like the inside of my nose disappeared with an awkward, heavy, sadness as Chris went in for his operation. And strangely I felt so in tune with Cassie’s episode.

The whole story was about her battling to find happyness that wouldn’t let her down. But inevitably everywhere she found happyness it all came crashing down. Power, Love, Friendship and Escape* all ended in heartbreak. Kind of a sad truth about life – and what is cool about her is that she is one of few the people who won’t accept that, all the way to the point where it tears them apart.

The story really got to me. 

And I have been waiting to watch the finale since then – I think I am going to watch it tonight, with some fruit treats and roast veges *bleh!*

Wish me luck with it – Its so bad when a show you love finishes (Season 3 does not count).
