Series One and Two focuses on a group of British teens trying to grow up and learn about love and life with little adult supervision (and lots of PARTYING). Sid tries to be everyone's friend and usually ends up on the short end of the stick. He is mostly manipulated by best friend Tony, whose girlfriend Michelle he is in love with. Tony is one to try anything once, including every girl he meets. He manipulates not only Sid and Michelle but anyone else who will let him. Anwar is just looking to lose his virginity, and though he is Muslim, it rarely stops him from partying excessively. Gay and popular friend Maxxie is along for the ride, while trying to pursue his dream of being a dancer and actor in London. Cassie, an anorexic basket-case, is in love with Sid, who overlooks her time and time again. Straight-laced Jal wants to focus on her musical ambitions. Written by gatetraveler

Did You Know?


In one episode, JJ performs a "magic trick" by blowing fire. As soon as the flame bursts out, you can see (and hear) the reactions of Cook, Effy and Freddie. According to Ollie Barbieri, the reactions of Luke Pasqualino and Jack O'Connell, even the scream of Kaya Scodelario, were all genuine. It was told to them that there will be a fire-blowing scene, but it won't be real. What they didn't know was that Ollie Barbieri would actually blow fire. See more »


Throughout the series, lighting screens and crew reflections can be seen in Sid's glasses multiple times. See more »

User Reviews

only show that shows what being a teenager is really like
12 February 2008 | by See all my reviews

the first series is simply brilliant. The acting is actually quite good, you get the feeling that most of them are just like their characters. But skins isn't about acting it's about finally giving teenagers something to watch that we can really relate to.

There's at least one character for everyone to feel a connection with, or a friendship, but no teen can say that skins is bad, even some adults that remember the olden days should enjoy it. The episode when Cassie appeared was what got me hooked, she was so disturbingly real. I don't watch TV but i must say i love skins and advise everyone to watch it.
