I still can’t find it in myself to hate this show. It may be that I have a couple friends who share in the drama with me, but for the life of me, the 13-year-old version of myself that loved “Degrassi” cannot put down Skins; especially with the Netflix Instant Queue release of the most current and “final” season (or series, if you’re actually British). The show is super watchable, has pretty great acting, and all the standard dramatic unbelievable folly that any good High School show should have. For some terribly unconscionable reason, British channel E4 has determined to cancel “Skins”, and there will be a final 7th series starring, wait for it……ALL THE PAST CASTS.
Some true die-hards scoff at the newer casts (which change every two seasons) but each warm up to me in their own separate and special ways. if you’re looking at the equivalent of a quick-read teen novel, check this show out, as all the backlogged seasons are also available for streaming.
