Did You Know?


Tony insists on calling Michelle "Nips" during this episode. It's intended to be a double entendre and to suggest that her areolas are in some way off or humorous thereby putting her down twice with a single insult. In the British, the joke is funnier. The traditional British sobriquet "His Nibs" refers to a self-important person or someone who, quite literally puts themselves forward. See more »


When Miriam undresses at her window to flirt with Tony, you see that the house is a duplex (525 and 527 Markham Street) and that she lives in the left-hand half of the duplex (527). Later, when she picks up her mail, she takes the mail from the box for the right-hand half of the duplex (525), then turns toward the door for that other person's home, not hers. See more »

Words Can't Express How Horrid this is!
31 December 2012 | by tequila101See all my reviews

I love the UK version of Skins. I have watched all three seasons and I am now up to the fourth season in the outrageous teen drama. It's a great series in where you can relate to it, the concepts, themes and characters.

Two years ago, a pile of remakes were coming in and for the comedy genre, besides Shameless, Skins had be re-created for a new audience. Why? What on earth was the purpose for it? Money? Who knows, but what I'll say was that it was way to early for a remake to be made. I mean for gosh sake, the original series started in 2007 and it is continuing to the present. The remake aired in 2011 which is just stupid since the creators wanted to get their hands on a successful project. All I can say is like most films or TV series, this should have never been remade in the first place! I only watched the first episode of the US remake, and it is awful. Words can't express how horrid this pile of garbage is. It's exactly the same bloody thing we've seen before, accept we have a change of characters with worse personalities and there is a drastic change in atmosphere.

Lets talk about the characters in this first episode. Tony in the original was excellent. He was a bad-ass, smart-ass kid who didn't take anything seriously whilst this new Tony is just undeniably trying to be a carbon copy. Instead, he comes off just being stupid. Sid who is NOW Stanley in this is just plain boring. No excitement like the original. Chris, my favorite character in the UK, totally melted and watered down here. Here he is just awful. Maxxie is now replaced with a girl called Tea. Why? I don't bloody know, but I'll say it was a stupid thing. It does nothing for me, this new character or should I say replacement for Maxxie. As for the other kids in the group, their re-portrayals of the lovable UK kids are pulled off in the worst of ways possible.

As for the episode itself, its an exact copy of the original accept we have a mess up of characters and dialogue as well as scenes. The cinematography looks awful.

I've watched this first episode and I have come to terms that I hate the new, and still very current version of Skins. I highly recommend that you don't watch this version at all, because after ten or so minutes, it will become boring not only in the sense of this version being a carbon copy, but also the production just being presented horribly! And I thought some American remakes were bad! Like some Horror and even Shameless. I'd rather watch them over this! I don't believe I'll be continuing on with this series in general. It's just too messy and also too the same. Boring premise and lame acting.
