The story of a group of British teens who are trying to grow up and find love and happiness despite questionable parenting and teachers who more want to be friends (and lovers) rather than authority figures.
Three 40-something best friends from Los Angeles are flying to Paris when their plane makes an emergency landing in Cleveland. Realizing that all the norms from Los Angeles don't apply anymore, they decide to celebrate a city that values real women and stay where they're still considered hot.
I am a fan of the original. I have watched every season but the first two still are the best, now the US has gone and trashed it.
People who say you need to forget the UK version and just watch the US/Canadian version, need to realize that this is the UK version word for word; scene for scene; character for character. It's impossible to not compare them.
The acting is almost a none issue, as it is so bad you start to ignore it. Tony is horribly cast and even more horribly acted. Effy, well, I know she didn't have any lines, she still looked wrong to me.
The joys of watching Skins when I first discovered the UK version were great, the joys of watching the US remake, weren't there. I knew this was gonna be a failure but to copy the original word for word and still ruin it, someone needs fired.
If this shows makes a full season I will be surprised, but it won't make it on any good reviews.
