Storyline

Jewel and Adam are two totally different Los Angeles teenagers who meet and fall in love with one another at first sight. But their sudden romance is threatened by the different feuding families they come from. Jewel's liberal Jewish father, Larry Goldman, is an entrepreneur who specializes with pornography as well as some not-entirely-legal ties, while Adam's conservative Catholic father, Tom Roam, a city district attorney, is obsessed with bringing Goldman down in any way possible. The only thing both men have in common is a personal vow to halt the 'Romeo and Juliet-type' romantic union between their teenage children at all costs. Written by Matthew Patay

am i the ONLY imdb user that likes this show?!?
21 October 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

contrary to popular opinion among imdb users, i happen to LIKE Skin. it puts a unique twist on the romeo & juliet forbidden-love story and the pacing of the show is just right. the four main actors are really good at portraying their parts - by the end of the pilot episode, i hated adam's dad and could identify with jewel's character and how people had pre concieved notions of her b/c of what her dad did. the show is good and it'll be interesting to see how the writers continue with the storyline. i'll continue to watch it, but even i am skeptical about how long it'll last (though it's gotten some good critical reviews but that doesn't really mean anything).
