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

Off to an interesting start but where to go from here?
22 October 2003 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Yeah, the Romeo and Juliet aspect is good for getting people initially interested but the real stories will result from the two fathers' insane war against each other. Against this struggle, the kids can only react and the wives mostly advise.

It's nice to see that the entertainment mogul Goldman is actually a sympathetic anti-hero while DA Roam is a self-serving zealot. True, Goldman made some decisions early in his career that will come back to haunt him but Roam's persecution is questionable in its legality and suspect in its motivation. Personal note: I know people who have been hurt by zealous anti-porn prosecutions. Frankly, they're a heck of a lot nicer people to know than the self-obsessed DAs who tried to destroy their lives.

The wives are so far blank slates. Mrs Roam seems to act in an advisory role in the DA's office and is set up with a rival in the form of Roam's election manager. Mrs Goldman is less developed so far. She could be set up as a trophy wife but I think Goldman is too devoted to his family to think of her this way.

The kids seem a bit physically mature for 16-yr-olds. Maybe if the parents had been cast a bit older? Silver as Goldman and Ticotin are Mrs Roam are great but DA Roam looks way too young. And I hope they lose that idiotic pompadour!

In the end I suspect the show will turn out to be about FAMILY. The fathers' war will simply be the storm that tests the strength of these two families. I'm betting on the Goldmans to survive.

Interesting how chaste the producers are making the show. A strip joint with four fully-dressed dancers???? Sorry. At a normal club, the dancer who has been on longest should be fully nude, the next down to her g-string, the third still wearing the bikini brief, and only the newest one on the floor should still be fully dressed. (I used to deliver pizzas to a strip joint, in case you're wondering.) Curious how little skin was in SKIN, compared to the Oct 21 NYPD BLUE, with a delightful screen-filling strip by the lovely ER doctor. I suppose once SKIN is more established, we'll see more. Either that or Sweeps will bring out the big uns.
