Definitive Skins episode
15 March 2010 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I believed that the first season was the better. After watching this episode, I had to change idea. Fourth season is more beautiful and lyrical than the first one, although it lacks humour. I'd feel a criminal to spoil the plot, because it's so full of subtleties and surprises that you must see the episode; if I had to compare it, I would compare it to the second-last episode in season two, with Cook behaving as Michelle behaved, and the scene at the pub as the supper scene at Chris and Cassie's place (my humble opinion). I didn't like a lot Cook and Effy before, but here I changed opinion: Effy is so well written and well acted, she doesn't seem a TV character.

The dialogue scenes (Effy and Naomi at the hospital, Cook and Effy at the park) and the scenes between Effy and Freddy are top notch, and soundtrack is perfectly chosen. Don't miss this one.
