The best episode of Skins 5 so far
21 February 2011 | by greenylennonSee all my reviews

Skins 5 is almost reaching the high level of the best episodes from Season 1 & 2. Why is it still fresh after five seasons? Because of the scripts: they ooze sincerity, even if situations are obviously larger than life, but if scripts didn't ooze sincerity, the series wouldn't be so successful in portraying not only the teenage wasteland, but life, in some ways. Never as with this season the parents of our heroes are real folks, not the typical parent who doesn't care about you and no child would have around. This time we get to know Liv: at first I thought she was a naughtier version of Jal (if Mini was the new Michelle, someone had to be the new Jal), and I couldn't stand her fierce, party-girl attitude. Getting to know her was a pleasure, because I was put in front of a very fragile, confused, messed up girl who has to hide her own weaknesses if she wants to survive. The episode went from aerial and dreamy tones of the scenes with Matty (such a great character) to the tough and sad sequences involving a furious Mini, and Liv's mother and sisters. It was just like living a whole roller-coaster day with Liv. I must mention the soundtrack, which contains a lot of interesting alternative artists (The National, Best Coast, Beach House, a beautiful revival of an old Simon and Garfunkel song).
