A surprising episode.
11 January 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I have to say I wasn't totally looking forward to this one, the Franky episode was fairly typical of Skins, a teen with the usual angst, self image problems etc, what you get with Rich is essentially a metal head who's shy to ask a girl out. It turned out to be quite a powerful episode, in the opening episode Rich's character had seemed a little one dimensional, but as always with Skins, there is so much more to each character then appears on the surface. This played out extremely well, Alexander Arnold was brilliant, a hugely talented actor. Not being into metal much I found it a little hard to relate to, but having been with friends to a few metal gigs, I get the appeal.

More then appears on the surface, 8/10
