US Skins, you have failed.
18 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once I saw the preview for this "American" - *cough* Canadian *cough* version of Skins, I knew it would be bad. But I didn't expect it to be THIS horrible. The acting is atrocious and so poor. These "actors" (and I use that term lightly) are definitely doing this for the money because there is no way anyone who wants to seriously be an actor/actress is going to do this awful. Anyone who has passion for acting wouldn't do THIS poor of a job. When they rehearse, do their scripts just say their lines and have footnotes telling them to have no emotion whatsoever? This cast is so pathetic. It could be a hit if some big changes occur. If it continues to be as crappy as the pilot, it will not be a success. "MTV's highly anticipated Skins..."? Yeah right. Anything you consider bad acting cannot compare to this. It simply cannot.

Every line seems rehearsed and unnatural. Instead of trying to own up to the original actors, they should have made it somewhat their own. Hopefully, they'll become more comfortable with these roles and grow into them in time or something because this show just has FAIL tattooed ALL OVER IT.
