The UK skins (the original skins) was/is a great TV show and it worked very great because the actors and the characters fit so right. This new version has failed completely at doing that.
They shouldn't have looked for an American Tony (he doesn't even exist) but they should have made a new Tony that could be American and would fit the new actor.
As only the first episode has aired so far and though it may therefore seem a little early to be so judgemental already. But as the first episode was an almost literal remake it seems even less realistic. The show wasn't written for American circumstances, again it doesn't fit.
I hope they cancel this thing very very soon and if they would make a real US skins (that could be a good show if they put some effort in it) I would totally be behind that.
