The white knight Cook.
10 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

When I first heard that skins had started over again with the good old characters I was excited, than as started watching I got more and more disappointed. The Effie story was not believable at all; the Cassie story was even more stupid. She used to be this quirky but funny basket case, and now all of a sudden she was completely normal, working at a diner and being stalked, than becoming a fashion model.(which was highly unlikely her character) And now the whole story with cook… I guess he's destiny was the least surprising of them all a: mid level drug dealer.

But since when did cook become such a white knight!? In the previous seasons he didn't care about anyone but himself ,now all of a sudden after he witness he's boss kill one of the other mid level dealers, whom was having and affair with he's wife. Cook takes off with the gangsters girlfriend whom he suppose to save, along with he's own girlfriend

Cook was never any smart, so the fact that he's a drug dealer didn't surprise me. But the fact that he's a dumb blue eyed drug dealer seemed a bit too far fetched, I mean back in the old skins days, he was usually the one with the contacts in the underworld. So why portray him so naive now? I'm not surprised by the fact that he got a soft spot for girls, he always thought with he's libido, but the whole: I'm gonna play white knight and save her, is just so not cook Never gonna understand why they always gonna have a dialog with the bad guy, instead of just killing him. The entire second episode seems more like the plot for a bad American movie. Oh yeah, when you hiding in the woods from a gangster who wants to kill you, it is always smart to go around screaming for a missing person. I get that it's someone you care about but still not really logical. Not to mention that cook who always got in a fight back in the days, now fights like girl. They should've just left the old series alone instead of coming up with this crap. But I guess some of the cast was trying to move on from skins, I know that Hannah Murray who plays Cassie wasn't all that interested in going back. But she said she liked the new Cassie( I guess she needed the money)and that's why she came back *******************************Be ware spoiler*********************** When Cook got a chance to end it all he refuses,and let the mob guy live,even though he just killed he's girlfriend and her parents(which didn't make sense)that part just got too stupid,did he really think that the gangster boss wouldn't come after him just cause he managed to beat him in a fist fight?? Get real
